Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday ahead of the release of the minutes for the Federal Reserve’s last policy meeting. Investors may have gained some optimism about the upcoming earnings season following Alcoa’s (AA) first quarter report, sending its shares and the major averages higher right from the outset of today’s trading. The indexes have moved in a relatively narrow range, but have remained in positive ground throughout the morning. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., wholesale inventories rose 0.5% in February, matching economists’ forecast. The minutes for the March 18-19 FOMC meeting are scheduled to be released at 2 pm ET. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of aluminum producer Alcoa gained more than 3% after the company unofficially kicked off the earnings season with its report last night. The company reported first quarter adjusted profit that beat estimates, on revenue that missed expectations, adding that its year-to-date productivity gains are ahead of schedule… Toyota Motor (TM) saw its New York listed shares slip a bit over 1.5% after the company announced the recall of over 6M vehicles worldwide and its shares were downgraded to a Neutral rating at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Another automaker grappling with its own recall issues, General Motors (GM), declined 2% after Morgan Stanley downgraded the stock to Underweight from Equal Weight. GM will need to invest heavily into connected vehicles, advanced power trains and eventually autonomous cars, which will pressure margins and earnings, the analyst contended… Procter & Gamble (PG) shares were fractionally higher after the consumer goods giant agreed to sell its three major pet food brands - Iams, Eukanuba, and Natura - to Mars for $2.9B. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was marketing software and solutions provider Constant Contact (CTCT), which surged 28% higher after the company’s preliminary first quarter revenue exceeded analysts' projection. Also higher were shares of several companies that own local TV stations, including Gray Television (GTN), Sinclair Broadcast (SBGI), and Nexstar (NXST), after Wells Fargo upgraded all three stocks after its meetings with FCC representatives relieved its prior concerns that the agency could veto sharing deals among stations. Among the noteworthy losers was beer and wine importer and distributor Constellation Brands (STZ), which slid 3% despite the company reporting sales that matched estimates and adjusted profits that beat the consensus forecast. Also lower were shares of a number of coal producers, including Alpha Natural Resources (ANR), Walter Energy (WLT) and Arch Coal (ACI), after all three stocks were downgraded to Sell at UBS. INDEXES: Near noon, the Dow was up 57.81, or 0.36%, to 16,313.95; the Nasdaq was up 29.81, or 0.72%, to 4,142.80; and the S&P 500 was up 6.06, or 0.33%, to 1,858.02.

07:30 EDTGMGeneral Motors downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays
Barclays downgraded the U.S. Autos and Auto Parts sector to Negative from Neutral and cut its rating on General Motors (GM) to Equal Weight from Overweight. The firm sees further sector underperformance as China car sales continue to disappoint and Chinese production goes negative against a peak in the U.S. auto industry and a slow recovery in Europe. The firm sees few near-term catalysts for General Motors given is larger exposure to China and little that will change its perception by investors as a "value trap." Barclays lowered General Motors' price target to $36 from $44.
