12:27 EDTDEST, NQ, HUM, GNW, RT, REGN, TWTROn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, with the Nasdaq leading and the Dow lagging, after a much better than expected reading on second quarter economic growth in the U.S. and ahead of a statement from the Federal Reserve following its latest policy meeting. With a solid earnings season and the economic data showing growth, investors are now on Fed watch, with the move in the averages potentially illustrating fear that the central bank may begin to get more hawkish. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Commerce Department estimated that Gross Domestic Product grew at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.0% in the second quarter, easily beating expectations for a growth rate of 3.0%. Payroll company ADP reported private payrolls climbed 218K in July, which was a bit below the 238K forecast. The Federal Reserve wraps up its two-day Federal Open Market Committee meeting today and the accompanying rate decision and statement is scheduled to be released at 2:00 pm ET. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Twitter (TWTR) surged 20% higher after the social network operator's second quarter results beat analysts' consensus estimates and it raised its fiscal year 2014 revenue and adjusted EBITDA forecasts. Following last night's report, Bank of America Merrill Lynch upgraded Twitter to Buy from Neutral, while the stock was also upgraded to Outperform from Sector Perform at FBN Securities, to Neutral from Sell at UBS and to Market Perform from Underperform at Cowen. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was NQ Mobile (NQ), which jumped 15% to trade near $8 per share after the company reported it has received a non-binding proposal from Bison Capital to acquire all of NQ's outstanding American depositary shares for $9.80 each. Also higher was Regeneron (REGN), which rose 6% after the company announced that nine new Phase 3 Odyssey trials of alirocumab in people with hypercholesterolemia met their primary efficacy endpoint. Among the noteworthy losers was Genworth Financial (GNW), which dropped 13% and was downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Macquarie after its second quarter earnings report. Also lower following their earnings reports were Humana (HUM), which slid 5%, Ruby Tuesday (RT), which fell over 16%, and Destination Maternity (DEST), which dropped more than 19%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 57.70, or 0.34%, to 16,854.41, the Nasdaq was up 9.01, or 0.2%, to 4,451.71, and the S&P 500 was down 3.87, or 0.2%, to 1,966.08.
