On The Fly: Top stock stories at midday

Stocks spent the morning in a virtual holding pattern, trading in a narrow range just below the flat line. The Nasdaq and S&P have moved to their best levels of the day near noon, while the Dow remains virtually unchanged from where it closed yesterday. Volatility may be expected near and after the close given that today will see the rebalancing of the Russell index. Oil prices have taken their cue from equities as they have been drifting but have turned a bit higher as well. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., Markit's flash composite PMI for June came in at 53.0, down from 53.6 in May. New home sales rose 2.9% to a 610,000 home rate in May following big upward revisions in the prior three months that made for a strong report. Baker Hughes will issue its U.S. rig count, which is typically is viewed as a proxy for activity in the sector, at 1 pm ET. In Europe, the flash manufacturing PMI came in better than expected at 57.3, but services fell short of the consensus forecast with a reading of 55.7. In Asia, Japan's manufacturing flash PMI for June fell to 52 from 53.1 in May. COMPANY NEWS: Last night, the board of governors of the Federal Reserve System released results of its supervisory bank stress tests, finding that all 34 participating bank holding companies exceed the minimum requirements in the hypothetical stress scenario. Several of the biggest financial institutions that participated include Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), and Wells Fargo (WFC), though the bigger news for those mega-cap banks will be next week's Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review, or CCAR, announcements, which will determine how they can increase dividends and buy back stock. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Synchronoss Technologies (SNCR), which jumped 36% after it received an indication of interest from Siris Capital Group to acquire the company for $18.00 per share in cash. Also higher were AK Steel (AKS) and U.S. Steel (X), which gained 5.5% and 4.5%, respectively, after both stocks were upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank this morning. Among the noteworthy losers was Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY), which dropped 11% after the company reported weaker than expected Q1 results. Also lower was BlackBerry (BBRY), which fell 11% after reporting quarterly revenues and gross margins that were below the consensus forecast. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 12.38, or 0.06%, to 21,409.67, the Nasdaq was up 16.64, or 0.27%, to 6,253.32, and the S&P 500 was up 4.53, or 0.19%, to 2,439.03.

Fitbit checks suggest weak domestic sales, says Citi
Citi analyst Stanley Kovler says his firm's channel checks into app downloads, Google search and pricing suggest continued near-term weak domestic sales for Fitbit (FIT) but some improvements international, mainly in Europe and Latin America. According to IDC, Apple (AAPL) and Xiaomi tied for the top position in wearables with 15% unit share apiece versus Fitbit at number three with 12% share in Q1, down from 23% last year, Kovler tells investors in a research note. The analyst points out that it took Apple four-to-five quarters to start making a "competitive dent" against a prior industry leader BlackBerry (BBRY). Kovler believes the same could now be playing out with Fitbit against the Apple Watch. He keeps a Sell rating on Fitbit shares with a $5 price target.

While QNX is a small part of BlackBerry's overall business, he sees this news as damaging its growth story in autonomous and connected cars, Garcha tells investors. He keeps an Underperform rating and $8 price target on BlackBerry shares.

Mrogan Stanley recommends buying large banks on weakness after Q1 results
Morgan Stanley analyst Betsy Graseck expects most large banks she covers to report weaker than expected Q1 results. However, the analyst recommends that investors buy the large-cap bank stocks on weakness, as she expects them to benefit from "stronger capital return, easing regulation, lower taxes and higher rates in 2H17," along with an improved GDP outlook and strong expense management. Graseck identifies Citi (C) as her top pick heading into the quarter, as she expects its Q1 results to beat expectations, driven by strength in emerging markets and "repositioning investments" that have started to beat fruit. She expects the bank to get a boost from CCAR in June and says that it is "the biggest beneficiary of easing regulation." Other publicly traded companies in the space include Bank of America (BAC), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC).

Glass-Steagall return wouldn't find support in Congress, says Evercore ISI
After media reports claimed White House economic adviser Gary Cohn supports rules to make banks split their consumer lending units from their investment divisions, which hints at a return of the "Glass-Steagall" law that was ended by President Clinton and a Republican Congress in 1999, Evercore ISI analyst Terry Haines said there is little support in Congress for a return of the law. Any new bank regulations can't "be done with the stroke of a pen" and will have to go through the usual regulatory process, added Haines.

As noted earlier, Longbow upgraded steelmakers Nucor (NUE), Steel Dynamics (STLD), U.S. Steel (X) and AK Steel (AKS) to Buy from Hold. After speaking with contacts in the sector, analyst Chris Olin says they expect steel HRC prices to rise $50-$60 per ton, driven by "a (recent) modest uptick in downstream steel orders, inventory adjustments and a large pullback in the number of steel import offers." In the wake of his checks, Olin now sees the chances of near-term government support of the U.S. steel sector in the form of protection from imports at 70%-80%, up from 50% last month. The analyst reports that "some buyers" expect price to rise to $700-$750 per ton following the government action, up from $590-$600 currently. Nucor target $66, Steel Dynamics target $40, U.S. Steel target $30, AK Steel target $10.
