12:25 EDTWMT, F, SVU, NOK, URBN, MCP, AROOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, as a slightly worse than expected weekly jobless claims report in the U.S. was balanced by strong export data from China. With the earnings season not set to begin in earnest until next week, and no sign of urgency from lawmakers to pick up their debate on the impending debt ceiling until the last minute again, the market may be range-bound in the near term... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., weekly jobless claims rose 4K to 371K, versus expectations for 362K claims. Wholesale inventories increased 0.6% in November, versus expectations for an increase of 0.2%. The Job Openings & Labor Turnover survey showed advertised job openings climbed 11,000 in November to 3.67M, which was about 12% more than in the same month a year ago. In Europe, the ECB kept its main interest rate unchanged. The Bank of England also voted, as expected, to keep its main interest rate unchanged and not to buy more government bonds. China's trade surplus rose to $31.6B in December from $19.6B in November, as exports increased 14.1% compared with the same period a year earlier, widely beating expectations for a 4.5% increase. Imports gained 6%, compared to expectations for a 2.6% increase... COMPANY NEWS: Wal-Mart (WMT) shares slid nearly 1% after two Congressmen suggested that the company's current CEO knew as early as 2005 about bribery allegations against the retailer in Mexico... Ford (F) rose 2.5% after the company doubled its quarterly dividend to 10c per share... Supervalu (SVU) rose almost 13% after the company reported a quarterly profit on sales that were roughly in-line with expectations, but more importantly agreed to sell its Albertsons, Acme, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s and Star Market chains to a Cerberus-led consortium in a transaction valued at $3.3B... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Nokia (NOK), which surged over 18% after announcing its Mobile Phones business unit and Lumia portfolio delivered better than expected results in Q4 and operating expenses were lower than expected. Also higher were shares of Urban Outfitters (URBN), up 4% after it reported a 9% increase in comparable retail segment net sales during the holiday season and research firm Piper Jaffray raised its price target on the shares. Among the noteworthy losers were Molycorp (MCP), down 21% after forecasting lower than expected 2013 revenue and cash flow, and Aeropostale (ARO), down 6% after cutting its Q4 profit view and having shares downgraded to Hold at Brean Capital... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 14.49, or 0.11%, to 13,405.00; the Nasdaq was down 0.40, or 0.01%, to 3,105.41; and the S&P 500 was up 3.85, or 0.26%, to 1,464.87.

"E-commerce is particularly important to both our customers and our company’s future, and we will continue to invest in areas such as technology, talent, and fulfillment.
