16:59 EDTAH, NWSA, AAPL, KND, CAT, HES, UIS, BAOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher as a number of quarterly earnings reports surpassed expectations. Stock futures were higher following a fantastic earnings report from Apple (AAPL). The earnings lifted the entire tech sector and brought the industrials along with it. The futures action led to a higher open for the broader market. The market hit its highs in the opening hour and then drifted lower until it found a range where it remained for most of the day. After the Fed held rates steady, as expected, and issued some updated guidance following its FOMC meeting the market continued to drift. The Fed lowered its employment forecast and raised its GDP forecast but the averages did not react strongly and maintained their range bound action… ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said the bank is prepared to take additional action if necessary to boost the economy, despite leaving its policy unchanged for now. Earlier in the session, durable goods orders were reported to have fallen 4.2% in March, versus the expected decrease of 1.7%... COMPANY NEWS: Apple's results handily beat expectations, as sales rose to $39.2B, earning per share grew to $12.30 and the company reported it sold 35.1M iPhones in Q2... Two Dow components reported quarterly results with opposite investor reactions, as Boeing (BA) led all Dow advancers, up more than 5% after its report, while Caterpillar (CAT) fell over 4% after its revenues missed expectations on China sales that were lower than last year. In other news, News Corp.’s (NWSA) Rupert Murdoch denied ever seeking favors from any prime minister in an intensive media-ethics inquiry prompted by the company’s phone-hacking scandal... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Unisys (UIS), up $3.30, or 20.12%, to $19.70, following its encouraging quarterly report, and Kindred Healthcare (KND), up $1.56, or 18.80%, to $9.86, after it received two upgrades following the report of a proposed rule confirmation that would update Medicare payment policies and rates for inpatient stays at long-term care hospitals. Noteworthy losers included Accretive Health (AH), down $7.74, or 41.86%, to $10.75, after Minnesota’s attorney general alleged that the company improperly posted debt collectors in hospitals, and Hess (HES), down $3.86, or 7.01%, to $51.18, after the company told analysts it will not meet its 60,000 barrels of oil per day target at the Bakken oil shale field in North Dakota… INDICES: The Dow gained $89.16, or 0.69%, to 13,090.72; the Nasdaq rose $68.03, or 2.30%, to 3,029.63; and the S&P 500 added $18.72, or 1.36%, to 1,390.69.

12:48 EDTAAPLGT Advanced rallies after Goldman raises price target
Shares of GT Advanced Technologies (GTAT) - which makes sapphire products and solar energy equipment - are climbing after Goldman Sachs raised its price target on the stock in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: Goldman Sachs analyst Brian Lee raised his 2015 and 2016 earnings per share estimates for GT Advanced, as he is more upbeat about the outlook for the company's equipment business. GT Advanced's deal to supply sapphire for upcoming Apple (AAPL) devices is worth $15 per share for GT if the deal goes as expected, and up to $25 if the deal exceeds expectations, contended Lee. The analyst raised his price target on the stock to $24 from $20 and kept a Buy rating on the shares. OTHERS TO WATCH: Rubicon Technology (RBCN) also makes sapphire. That stock was upgraded to Overweight from Neutral in a note to investors from JPMorgan yesterday. JPMorgan expected Rubicon to benefit from a pick-up in demand for LEDs and sapphire covers. The stock surged yesterday in the wake of the upgrade. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, GT Advanced climbed $1.13, or 6.5%, to $18.51, while Rubicon fell 2.8% to $12.62.
