Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday, with some attributing the move to noted Fed watcher Jon Hilsenrath of The Wall Street Journal giving the opinion that he does not believe the central bank will drop the language that interest rates will "remain low for an extended period of time" when it issues its latest policy statement tomorrow. The averages began the session in negative territory and appeared to be heading for another listless day of trading.

As part of the deal, Simon Property Group (SPG), which completed its separation of Washington Prime Group this May, agreed to buy two shopping malls owned by Glimcher for $1.09B in cash. Shares of fellow mall owning REITs CBL & Associates (CBL), Rouse Properties (RSE) and Pennsylvania REIT (PEI) rose following the deal announcement. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Bill Barrett (BBG), which rose 12% after selling natural gas, oil and natural gas liquids assets in the Piceance Basin in Colorado for $525M to Vanguard Natural (VNR).
