European indices were
hammered by the weal preliminary November PMI data, with no recovery in sight
for the wounded continental economy. US futures were in the red on the data,
however the very good Philly Fed and US housing data helped send stocks back
into positive territory mid morning. Meanwhile, US CPI continues to increase
very modestly. As of writing, the DJIA is up 0.06%, the S&P500 is up 0.23%
and the Nasdaq is up 0.48%.
The Philly Fed's manufacturing outlook
crushed expectations and delivered the highest headline figure since December
1993. Expectations of 18.5 were down slightly from last month's 20.7 reading.
The new orders index rose 18 points to 35.7. Analysts note that the striking
numbers runs counter to other surveys this month, with both the Empire State
manufacturing report and flash PMI reports coming in mixed. Others note the
series has had spikes followed by big revisions in the past.
October existing home sales pushed out to a one-year high of 5.26 million
units, while the supply of homes on the market fell to a seven-month low of
5.1 months equivalent. Analysts highlight that the current cycle high in the
series was 5.380 million in July 2013. The XHB is up 2.3%, and the major
homebuilders are up 2-3% a piece.

with Saudi Arabia regarding market share at OPEC meeting next week but would not
cut oil output by a single barrel. Gold is back where it was yesterday morning,
trading below $1,180.
Shares of high-flying, camera-on-a-stick company
Gopro are off another 6% this morning after sliding around 8% on yesterday's

around $75/shr, and the company is trading around $74.30 as of writing.
Recall that the CEO is selling around 4 million shares in the sale.
BestBuy is up 8% after disclosing excellent third-quarter results this
morning. Margins, profits and revenue all saw healthy growth, while US comps
were good and online comps were very good. L-Brands is up modestly on solid
third-quarter results, although its guidance was a bit soft. Keurig Green
Mountain tanked in the post market and fell further this morning after
yesterday's bad guidance call. GMCR is near its lows, down 8.2%.
