Midday Movers: RCL, CLX & More
Senior Editor, CNBC
Take a look at some of Monday's midday movers:
Royal Caribbean was lower after the cruise operator warned its full-year earnings would be below Wall Street's expectations. But the company also said that strength in U.S. bookings helped offset weakness in Europe.
Clorox traded near an all-time high after the household-products maker posted better-than-expected earnings and raised its full-year guidance helped in part by strong sales related to the severe flu season this year.
Gannett traded lower after the newspaper company reported a 12 percent decline in profits on charges related to its restructuring. The earnings beat consensus estimates but continued declines in print ad revenues continue to weigh on the sector.
New York Times was downgraded to "sell" from "neutral" at Lazard Capital in part, because of the details in Gannett's earnings report.
Dell slipped lower after CNBC learned that sources close to the situation indicate a deal for the tech company is closer to $13.50 per share.
And Gamestop moved up after S&P raised its price target on the videogame retailer to $28 from $26, while maintaining a "buy" rating.
