Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday, in spite of jobless claims that were higher than expected and disappointing results from Exxon Mobil (XOM). Stocks began the day quietly following the jobless claims data. The averages were mixed in the opening half hour but spurted higher following the March pending home sales report.

MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were SolarWinds (SWI), up 19%, after guiding to FY12 adjusted earnings that were above consensus at the midpoint, and Brinks (BCO), up over 17%, following results that beat on both the top and bottom line. Noteworthy losers included Leap Wireless (LEAP), down 20%, following downgrades at Raymond James and Guggenheim after its weak Q1 results, and NII Holdings (NIHD), down more than 18%, after its revenues and earnings disappointed...

06:39 EDTXOMEuro, U.S. oil and gas groups to find tough competition in Iran, WSJ says
European and U.S. oil and gas firms drawn to Iran as sanctions lessen can expect not only opportunities, but also Iranian companies offering tough competition or joint ventures, the Wall Street Journal reports. Though no Iran-based companies have the clout of firms such as Exxon Mobil (XOM) or Schlumberger (SLB), companies that can take on engineering tasks are emerging and growing in Iran, the report says. If the Iran nuclear agreement comes into effect and sanctions are lifted against Iran sometime soon, those Iranian companies will be well positioned to compete for tens of billions of dollars worth of service contracts, the report adds. Other publicly traded companies in the space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). Reference Link
