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.

The University of Michigan final consumer sentiment reading for October was 82.6, down a bit from the preliminary reading of 83.1...

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...

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...

14:06 EDTAAPLApple technical comments ahead of earnings, potential bearish pattern
There is a potential bearish head and shoulders top, which is most easily seen on a 3-year chart. The neckline for the pattern is at the $100 area on a closing basis, and in recent sessions the pattern has been both active and inactive as price crossed that line. If the news is bearish, a breakdown below $100 would see the pattern become active. Downside potential for the pattern would be to the $70 to $66 area. If the news is a bullish surprise, and sentiment has turned negative on the name which could add to short-cover demand, the counter-reaction up may be as large as pattern suggests is possible on the downside. It could mean in time a retaking of the $130 area or higher. The life high for the shares is at $134.54.

05:49 EDTAMZNPiper's Munster sees attractive entry point for Amazon shares
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster is bullish on Amazon.com shares into the company's December quarter results. Concerns over a potential margin reinvestment phase are overblown, Munster tells investors in a research note. He believes Street estimates are mis-modeling Amazon's margin expansion in 2016 and thinks the company's unit growth will likely exceed expectations. He views current share levels as an attractive entry point for investors and keeps an Overweight rating on Amazon with an $800 price target. The stock closed Friday up $21.36 to $596.38.
