12:30 EDTNDLS, RRGB, AAP, WMT, OVTI, CSCOOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in positive territory and have remained there throughout the morning. The averages have edged higher despite worse than expected U.S. jobless claims data, weak economic growth in Germany, and a lowered outlook from retail giant Wal-Mart (WMT). Each of the major indexes is drifting on light volume and the Dow, Nasdaq and S&P 500 are all higher by roughly 0.25%. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose to 311K in the second week of August, versus expectations for 295K claims. Import prices fell 0.2%, while export prices were flat in July. In Europe, growth in the shared currency zone stagnated, with Q2 GDP slipping to unchanged, while the biggest economy in the region, Germany, saw its GDP contract 0.2% in the quarter. COMPANY NEWS: Wal-Mart reported second quarter results that were in-line with expectations, but the world's largest retailer cut its fiscal year earnings outlook citing additional investments in e-commerce and higher U.S. health-care costs than previously anticipated. Despite the lowered guidance, the Dow member's shares were virtually unchanged near noon... Another member of the Dow, Cisco Systems (CSCO), was the the blue-chip average's laggard, falling nearly 3% after saying it does not expect emerging markets growth for "several quarters" and that it expects to cut 6,000 jobs, or 8% of its workforce. The move lower comes despite its report of higher than expected sales and profits for its fiscal fourth quarter and multiple Street research firms raising their price targets for Cisco's stock. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was OmniVision (OVTI), which rose 13% to trade near $28 per share after announcing its board has received a preliminary non-binding proposal from Hua Capital Management to acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock of the company for $29.00 per share in cash. Also higher was Advance Auto Parts (AAP), which rose about 6% after the company reported higher than expected second quarter earnings and raised its fiscal year comparable cash EPS view. Among the noteworthy losers were casual dining companies Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (RRGB), which dropped 21%, and Noodles & Company (NDLS), which fell 20%, after both reported lower than anticipated second quarter results. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 38.74, or 0.23%, to 16,690.54, the Nasdaq was up 10.26, or 0.23%, to 4,444.39, and the S&P 500 was up 5.24, or 0.27%, to 1,951.96.
