12:36 EDTWFC, LO, RAI, AMZN, MTG, RCII, JOEZOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed and fairly flat at midday as fears about Europe's periphery may have lessened a bit after stock markets in Portugal rebounded, though they have not left the picture by any means. The day's big events stateside, including the earnings report from Wells Fargo (WFC) and the confirmation that Lorillard (LO) and Reynolds American (RAI) are in talks about a potential tie-up, have not been enough so far to encourage buyers to step in with conviction. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no economic data was reported early in the session. The June federal budget statement is expected to be released at 2:00 pm ET, with analysts predicting a $79.0B surplus for the month. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Wells Fargo, the nationís largest mortgage lender and the first major U.S. bank to report on its second quarter results, slipped xx% near noon after posting earnings of $1.01 a share that matched analysts' consensus forecast. Wells did note that its credit performance continued to improve in Q2 and CEO John Stumpf said he is "optimistic about the future" for the bank... Lorillard advanced 3%, while Reynolds American fell 2%, after the two cigarette makers confirmed earlier today that they are holding talks about a possible merger, as has been speculated by various media reports in recent weeks. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Amazon.com (AMZN), which climbed 4.5% after consulting firm ChannelAdvisor (ECOM) reported that the company's same-store sales growth had accelerated significantly in June compared with May. Also higher was Joe's Jeans (JOEX), which rose 16% and was upgraded to Buy at B. Riley following the company's Q2 earnings report. Among the noteworthy losers was Rent-A-Center (RCII), which plunged 11% after the company warned that its revenue and earnings for Q2 will not meet expectations. Also lower was MGIC Investment (MTG), which fell nearly 11% and was removed from Goldman's Conviction Buy list due to increased uncertainty from the release of the FHFA's proposed private mortgage insurer eligibility requirements. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 26.29, or 0.16%, to 16,888.78, the Nasdaq was up 5.66, or 0.13%, to 4,401.86, and the S&P 500 was down 2.71, or 0.14%, to 1,961.97.
