16:25 EDTDV, AMZN, VRSN, FB, AAPL, TASR, COn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed on the day and the averages were down significantly on the week. Following a midday sell-off, the markets recouped their losses and moved into positive territory during the afternoon before weakening a bit at the end of the session. Among those set to report earnings next week are Exxon Mobil (XOM), Chevron (CVX), and Ford Motor (F)... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the first GDP reading for the third quarter showed growth of 2.0%, versus expectations for 1.8% growth. This was up from the 1.3% growth rate in the second quarter. Personal consumption for the third quarter was in line with expectations, rising 2.0%. The University of Michigan final consumer sentiment reading for October was 82.6, down a bit from the preliminary reading of 83.1... COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL) last night reported quarterly sales that marginally beat expectations and earnings that missed them. The company reported iPhones sales rose 58% compared to last year and iPads sales increased 26% from the prior year's quarter. Shares fell immediately after the results were released and saw a big drop midday, but eventually closed down just $5.54, or 0.91%, to $604.00... Amazon's (AMZN) quarterly losses and revenue were worse than expected, but shares rose through the day, eventually settling up $15.32, or 6.87%, to $238.24 as investors digested the report and Jefferies defended the Q3 results in a note to investors... Citigroup (C) fired an analyst, Mark Mahaney, after the firm was fined $2M by the state of Massachusetts for disclosure violations related to the initial public offering of Facebook (FB)... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were DeVry (DV), up $5.19, or 24.93%, to $26.01, and TASER (TASR), up $1.67, or 26.13%, to $8.06, following their stronger than expected quarterly reports. Noteworthy losers included Verisign (VRSN), down $7.21, or 15.47%, to $39.39 despite higher than expected quarterly earnings as the company warned the Commerce Department may not complete its review of the company's .com registry agreement before it expires at the end of November. Also lower were shares of Constant Contact (CTCT), down $5.10, or 29.95%, to $11.93 after the company's quarterly report spurred a rash of downgrades and lowered price targets... INDICES: The Dow gained 3.53, or 0.03%, to 13,107.21; the Nasdaq rose 1.83, or 0.06%, to 2,987.95; and the S&P 500 fell 1.03, or 0.07%, to 1,411.94.

07:16 EDTCRising competition may make AmEx targets hard to achieve, WSJ says
Though American Express recently reaffirmed its long-term targets for growing revenue 8% per year or better and earnings per share by 12%-15% per year while increasing operating expenses by less than 3% per year, there are good reasons to be skeptical about its ability to hit those targets, according to The Wall Street Journal's "Heard on the Street" column. Competition from peer Visa (V) as well as big banks such as Citi (C) and Bank of America (BAC) may put pressure on AmEx’s margins and it is not safe to assume that the company will always fare as well on the Fed's stress tests as it just did, the report stated.

Citigroup analyst Jeremy David downgraded Garmin two notches to Sell from Buy saying competitive pressures are likely to stall the growth of the company's GPS fitness watch business. He also thinks revenue trends in Garmin's Outdoor segment could disappoint as the year progresses. David expects Garmin to miss consensus earnings and revenue expectations in Q1 and views the Apple (AAPL) Watch launch as another potential negative catalyst for shares. He cut his price target for the stock to $42 from $68. Shares of the navigation and information device maker closed Thursday down 58c to $46.49 after Goldman Sachs downgraded the stock Neutral from Buy.
