12:12 EDTTYC, AMLN, RDS.A, ALIM, PNR, BNNY, XOM, SNX, BMY, CVXOn The Fly: Mid-Day Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street are lower at mid-day, after a report on durable goods orders in February fell short of expectations. After a meandering start to the session the averages have found their direction and it is lower. Each of the major equity indices is firmly in negative territory and at session lows. The market began the session mixed and seemed unaffected by the generally in-line durable goods orders report. The market also ignored the weekly DOE energy inventory reports until the averages broke out of their tight range and moved to the downside, gaining negative momentum as the day progresses... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., durable goods orders for February rose 2.2%, versus expectations for a 3.0% increase. The core reading, which excludes transportation items, increased 1.6%, versus the expected increase of 1.7%... MARKET NEWS: Exxon Mobil (XOM), Shell (RDS.A), BP (BP), and Chevron (CVX) all declined as oil prices dropped following statements from France's energy minister about a possible joint oil reserve release coordinated between France, the U.S. and the U.K... Organic pasta maker Annie's (BNNY) soared after the company's initial public offering, which priced above its expected range at $19. The stock is up almost 72% to $32.63 near noon... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Amylin (AMLN), after Bloomberg reported that the company rejected a $22 per share takeover offer from Bristol-Myers (BMY) earlier this year, and Pentair (PNR), after the company agreed to merge with Tyco's (TYC) Flow Control business to create a combined company that sees pro forma 2012 revenues of $7.7B. Noteworthy losers included SYNNEX (SNX), following a downgrade at Citigroup on the company's disappointing guidance for Q2, and Alimera (ALIM), after the company said last night that based on recent discussions with European regulatory authorities it thinks it will take longer than originally anticipated to obtain marketing authorizations for it ILUVIEN drug... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was down 83.97, or 0.64%, to 13,113.76; the Nasdaq was down 24.20, or 0.78%, to 3,096.15; and the S&P 500 was down 11.26, or 0.80%, to 1,401.26.

06:03 EDTTYCU.S. Multi-Industry sector downgraded to Neutral at Barclays
Barclays downgraded the U.S. Multi-Industry space to Neutral from Overweight saying rising headwinds could limit share upside to mid-single-digit levels in 2015, with only slight improvement in 2016. The firm believes the credit cycle is peaking and views the U.S. Dollar strength along with lower oil prices as headwinds. Concurrent with sector rating change, Barclays downgraded Dover (DOV), Grainger (GWW), Xylem (XYL) and WESCO (WCC) to Equal Weight from Overweight. It also upgraded Tyco (TYC) to Overweight from Equal Weight and Lennox (LII) to Equal Weight from Underweight, calling both defensive names in the space. The firm is also "comfortable" owning General Electric (GE), Honeywell (HON), Sensata (ST) and HD Supply (HDS) at current levels. It prefers waiting for pullbacks to buy shares of 3M (MMM).
