13:30 EDTFTNT, TJX, AMZN, GRCLF, TGT, M, THOR, ADM, EBAY, WMTOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed in a shortened trading session that capped off the holiday week. The averages opened higher and drifted for much of the session before a large imbalance to sell side sent the Dow and S&P 500 sharply lower in the final half hour of trade. The tech-heavy Nasdaq index served as the only major index logging gains in the final trading session of November. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major economic data was released. In Europe, the Eurozone unemployment rate in October was reported at 12.1%, lower than the prior reading and expectations for 12.2%. In Canada, third quarter GDP was reported at 2.7%, which was higher than economists' expectations for 2.5%, with year-over-year GDP growth coming at 2.3%, better than expectations for 2.1%. COMPANY NEWS: Major retailers were in focus as today marked "Black Friday," the unofficial beginning to the holiday shopping season, and a number of retailers, including Wal-Mart (WMT) and Macy's (M), opened their doors to shoppers last night. Online retailers Amazon.com (AMZN), up $6.91, or 1.79%, to $393.62, and eBay (EBAY), up $1.22, or 2.47%, to $50.52, were among the day's largest retail gainers, while shares of Wal-Mart, Macy's, Target (TGT), and The TJX Companies (TJX) each logged moves of less than 1% for the session... On Thursday, Australian regulators blocked Archer Daniels Midland's (ADM) proposed acquisition of GrainCorp (GRCLF). Following the news, shares of GrainCorp fell more than 20% in Sydney, while shares of Archer Daniels trading in New York fell $1.24, or 2.99%, to $40.25... Among the session's notable movers was Fortinet (FTNT), down $2.54, or 12.93%, to $17.10 after the company late Wednesday announced its CFO Ahmed Rubaie would be leaving the company, a move analysts at Wells Fargo say creates execution risks over the next few quarters. Also lower was Thoratec (THOR), down $2.75, or 6.53%, to $39.37 after an article published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine said the company's heart pump could increase the rate of thrombosis in patients. INDEXES: The Dow was down 10.92, or 0.07%, to 16,086.41; the S&P 500 was down 1.42, or 0.08%, to 1,805.81; the Nasdaq was up 15.14, or 0.37%, to 4,059.89.
