On The Fly: Top stock stories for Thursday

Stocks opened in positive territory, giving hope to investors that the "Trump rally" that began in November would continue into the new month. The Nasdaq was the first index to lose momentum and cross into negative ground as the rotation out of technology shares and into financials and industrials continues. The S&P also lost ground by the end of the day, while the Dow managed to cling to a modest gain. Oil prices continued to rally following yesterday's OPEC meeting, with WTI crude settling up another 3% to close just above $51 per barrel. ECONOMIC NEWS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose 17,000 to 268,000 in the week ended November 26, which was above expectations of 253,000. Markit's manufacturing PMI rose to 54.1 in the final November print, which was higher than the consensus estimate for a reading of 53.9. ISM's manufacturing index rose 1.3 points to 53.2 in November, better than forecast. Construction spending rose 0.5% in October following an unchanged September reading. In Europe, the Eurozone PMI manufacturing index was confirmed at 53.7, the strongest reading for 34 months. Unemployment in the euro zone dropped to 9.8 percent, the lowest level since July 2009. In Asia, China's official manufacturing PMI climbed to 51.7 in November, matching the highest level since 2012, while non-manufacturing PMI climbed to 54.7. COMPANY NEWS: Black Friday weekend discounts helped boost U.S. auto sales for the month of November, with Ford (F) reporting that sales increased 5% and General Motors (GM) saying sales were up 10.2% last month compared to November of last year. Shares of both companies jumped after the announcements, with Ford rising about 4% and General Motors advancing 5.5%. Also higher after announcing U.S. sales was Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), which rose about 1%. Meanwhile, Nissan Motor (NSANY), Toyota (TM) and Volkswagen (VLKAY) shares trading in New York all slipped despite the companies announcing increases in their auto sales in the U.S... Caterpillar (CAT) called the Thomson First Call consensus for 2017 of $3.25 earnings per share on $38B of sales and revenues "too optimistic considering expected headwinds." Nonetheless, in slides for the company's presentation at the Credit Suisse Industrials Conference, Caterpillar stated that it is on track for over $2B of period and variable cost reduction for the full year of 2016 and that it is "encouraged" by the potential of a U.S. infrastructure bill, tax reform, commodity prices and the recent OPEC announcement. Shares of the heavy machinery maker, which have risen about 17% over the last month, came off their early session highs following the presentation but still added about 0.7% for the day. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was bluebird bio (BLUE), which advanced nearly 14% after reporting interim data from the Phase 1 study of bb2121, its CAR-T treatment candidate for relapsed refractory multiple myeloma. Also higher was Clarcor (CLC), which gained 17% to $82.58 after Parker Hannifin (PH) agreed to purchase all of the outstanding shares of the company for $83 per share in cash. Additionally, Skechers (SKX) rose almost 16% after Buckingham analyst Scott Krasik upgraded the stock to Buy saying the company is one quarter away from a sales inflection driven by a new product cycle and noting that reduced inventory after second quarter reduces the risk of another major negative earnings revision near-term. Also of note, Skechers CEO Robert Greenberg reported the purchase of 500,000 Class A shares in a regulatory filing after last night's close. Among the noteworthy losers was Dollar General (DG), which slid 5% after the company reported another disappointing quarter of same-store sales and posted lower than expected earnings. Also lower after earnings was Express (EXPR), which fell 20% after the apparel chain slashed its guidance for the year again and offered a bleak outlook for the upcoming holiday season. Additionally, Guess (GES) dropped 10% after the jeans maker announced disappointing results for the quarter and cut its guidance for the year. INDEXES: The Dow rose 68.35, or 0.36%, to 19,191.93, the Nasdaq lost 72.57, or 1.36%, to 5,251.11, and the S&P 500 declined 7.73, or 0.35%, to 2,191.08.

While he cautions that the data is still "somewhat immature," the early results justify the high level of excitement around the potential of anti-BCMA CAR-T therapy in relapsed/ refractory myeloma, as several other companies including Juno Therapeutics (JUNO), Kite Pharma (KITE) and Novartis (NVS) have stated plans to also develop anti-BCMA-CART product candidates. Schmidt reiterates an Outperform rating on bluebird bio's shares.

Piper thinks blocking of Overtime Rule came too late
An Obama-appointed judge in Texas surprisingly blocked the Overtime Rule set to take effect on December 1, Piper Jaffray analysts in the Hardlines Retail & Specialty Products space tell investors in a research note. The analysts say that regardless of whether the injunction is upheld, their research suggests that the ruling comes too late for larger companies to pull back on the planned Overtime Rule change. Payroll and IT systems are likely set to adjust this coming Sunday, they point out. Piper's analysts expect the expense headwinds from the OT rule change for retailers/restaurants to remain in place. The retailers they believe that are most impacted from the rule are Dollar General (DG), Dollar Tree (DLTR), Regis (RGS) and Sally Beauty (SBH). The restaurants they believe are most impacted are Bojangles (BOJA), Starbucks (SBUX), Sonic (SONC), Noodles & Company (NDLS), Potbelly (PBPB), Del Taco (TACO) and Zoe's Kitchen (ZOES).
