12:21 EDTUAL, FDO, TRW, CRAY, PBPB, LLOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session deep in negative territory and although they have managed recoup some ground, they remain lower. Fears about the health of one of Portugalís largest banks, coupled with weak economic data out of Italy, prompted a sell-off in Europe, which spilled over to the U.S. The decline in the market marked its biggest drop since May, but the averages have recaptured some of their earlier session losses by midday. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims dropped 11K to 304K in the week ended July 5. Wholesale inventories rose 0.5% in May, while sales edged up 0.7%, which were both a little below expectations. In China, trade performance improved in June but still missed market forecasts. Exports rose 7.2% in June from a year earlier, missing the consensus forecast for a rise of 10.6%, while imports grew 5.5% in the month, versus the 5.8% growth expectation. In Europe, concerns about the periphery rose again as the parent company of Portugal's Espirito Santo bank missed a debt payment, leading the country's interest rates higher and equities in the Eurozone lower. Also, Italy's industrial output saw its steepest monthly fall since late 2012, having dropped 1.2% in May, and the Bank of England maintained its main bank rate and its stock of purchased assets. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of airline United Continental (UAL) rose nearly 10% after reporting that its consolidated traffic, or revenue passenger miles, was flat year-over-year in June. In a note to investors following the company's update, UBS said it expected United Continental shares to trade higher given its higher than expected PRASM... Family Dollar (FDO) initially fell after reporting third quarter earnings that missed expectations. The dollar store operator stated that its same-store sales were down 1.8% in the period, but noted that its June comparable sales were approximately flat and that it was "encouraged" by its improving trends. Near noon, the stock had recovered and was up nearly 1%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was supercomputer maker Cray (CRAY), which rallied 14.5% after the company announced it has been awarded a $174M computer deal from the National Nuclear Security Administration. Also higher was TRW Automotive (TRW), which rose nearly 7% before being halted for pending news near noon. Prior to the trading halt, Bloomberg had reported that Germanyís ZF Friedrichshafen has approached TRW about a potential takeover offer, with one source saying that the German company values the U.s. auto parts maker at around $11B-$12B. Among the noteworthy losers was sandwich maker Potbelly (PBPB), which plunged 23% after the company's second quarter and fiscal 2014 outlook fell significantly short of analysts' consensus estimates. Also lower was hardwood flooring and accessories retailer Lumber Liquidators (LL), which sunk 21% and was downgraded at both Credit Suisse and Jefferies after the company lowered its outlook for the year. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 91.13, or 0.54%, to 16,894.48, the Nasdaq was down 23.91, or 0.54%, to 4,395.13, and the S&P 500 was down 8.95, or 0.45%, to 1,963.88.
