16:32 EDTVELT, SZYM, WMT, DNB, BG, NTAP, OSIS, AMD, BPOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street finished the day lower after midday buying sent the averages briefly into positive territory, though the averages yet again could not hold onto their gains. Wal-Mart (WMT), which reported earnings before the bell, issued cautious Q4 guidance ahead of the holiday season. Uncertainty also weighed heavily on investors as concerns over the fiscal cliff, which have abounded since the election, were compounded by increased concerns in the Middle East... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims jumped by 78,000 from the prior week to 439,000. Analysts had forecast a smaller rise to 375,000 and the steep climb in claims was partially attributed to Superstorm Sandy. Consumer prices rose 0.1% overall in October, versus the expected increase of 0.1%. The NY Fed Empire State Survey for November had a -5.22 reading, versus the expected -8.00, and the Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Survey had a reading of -10.7, versus the expected +2.0. In Europe, Eurostat data showed the Eurozone fell back into recession in the third quarter... COMPANY NEWS: Wal-Mart, despite beating consensus estimates for the most recent quarter, provided guidance for the upcoming quarter that was lower than Street estimates. This tempered outlook sent shares of the Dow component lower by $2.59, or 3.63%, to close at $68.72... BP (BP) agreed to plead guilty to felony charges and to pay the largest criminal penalty in U.S. history for the Deepwater Horizon accident. The company said the aggregate amount of the settlement is about $4.5B, with payments scheduled over a period of six years. Shares of BP opened the day higher, but fell through the session and eventually settled fractionally higher, up 14c, or 0.35%, to $40.30... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was NetApp (NTAP), up $3.04, or 11.20%, to $30.16 after its earnings beat expectations and shares were upgraded at Raymond James. Also trading higher were shares of Solazyme (SZYM), up 71c, or 10.01%, to $7.80 after the company announced strategic partnerships with Archer Daniels (AMD) and a subsidiary of Bunge Limited (BG) that will expand the company's oil production capacity. Among noteworthy losers were shares of Velti (VELT), down $2.27, or 34.19%, to $4.37 after the company reported Q3 earnings that missed consensus estimates and the stock received a downgrade to Hold at Needham. Also lower were shares of OSI Systems (OSIS), down $21.40, or 28.05%, to $54.89 after a Bloomberg report said that Congressman Mike Rogers sent a letter to the TSA stating that the company may have "knowingly manipulated" the result of an operational test. The company later issued a statement denying claims made in the Bloomberg report. Dun & Bradstreet (DNB) declined $7.60, or 9.40%, to $73.21 after a late afternoon report by Reuters said talks between the company and its potential buyers fell apart... INDICES: The Dow lost 28.57, or 0.23%, to 12,542.38; the Nasdaq fell 9.87, or 0.35%, to 2,836.94; and the S&P 500 slid 2.17, or 0.16%, to 1,353.32.
