12:50 EDTFB, AAPLOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday following reports from some of the biggest names in technology and ahead of reports tonight from several other tech giants. The averages opened in positive territory, with the tech-heavy Nasdaq up more than 1% soon after the opening bell. The index was unable to hold its early gains and moved into negative territory, taking the other major averages with it. The indexes were able to keep their losses to a minimum and eventually regrouped and made it back onto positive ground, where they stood near noon. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose 24K from the prior week to 329K in the week ended April 19, which was above the 315K consensus forecast of analysts, though there may have been some impact from Easter as the Bureau of Labor Statistics noted difficulty adjusting the data around the holiday. Durable goods orders rose 2.6% in March, beating the 2.0% increase that was forecast. Outside the U.S., Russia said it launched military exercises along the Ukrainian border after Ukrainian forces killed pro-Russian militants. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple (AAPL) advanced more than 8% after the company reported significantly better than expected quarterly earnings and sales, particularly sales of its iPhone. Apple also announced a 7-for-1 stock split that will take effect in June, along with an 8% increase in its quarterly dividend and a $30B increase in its share repurchase authorization. Following last night's report, CLSA upgraded its rating on Apple shares to Buy from Outperform and raised its price target for the stock to $695 from $610, while Jefferies recommended "aggressively" buying shares following the Q2 results and outlook for Q3... Another tech giant, Facebook (FB), also reported earning and revenue that topped expectations last night, sending its shares higher in after-hours trading and prompting a number of price target hikes among Street analysts. However, Facebook also announced that its CFO David Ebersman will step down, to be succeeded by David Wehner, who is currently the company's Vice President of Corporate Finance and Business Planning. The social network operator traded on both sides of the flat-line this morning, but was up a bit over 1% at midday... Shares of General Motors (GM) fell about 2% after the company reported profits that narrowly edged out expectations but revenues that fell short of expectations. GM said its core operating performance has been on plan for the year CEO Mary Barra said the company has seen "no meaningful slowdown" in its U.S. sales despite the negative publicity related to its ongoing ignition switch recall and associated legal matters. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was orthopedic device maker Zimmer Holdings (ZMH), which climbed 11% after it agreed to merge with privately held Biomet in a cash and stock transaction valued at about $13.35B, including the assumption of net debt. Also higher following their earnings reports were Citrix Systems (CTXS), which rose 10%, D.R. Horton (DHI), which gained more than 7%, and Aetna (AET), which advanced 6%. Among the noteworthy losers was chip making giant Qualcomm (QCOM), which slid 3.5% despite reporting profits that beat expectations and raising its yearly EPS outlook, as the company also disclosed the receipt of a notice from the SEC about a potential filing of an enforcement action against the company related to anti-bribery violations. Also lower following their earnings reports were Xilinx (XLNX), which fell about 9%, Raytheon (RTN), which dropped 4%, and Hershey (HSY), which also declined about 4%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 19.49, or 0.12%, to 16,521.14, the Nasdaq was up 25.91, or 0.63%, to 4,152.87, and the S&P 500 was up 5.35, or 0.29%, to 1,880.74.
12:25 EDTAAPLApple shares cheap, Netflix expensive, Barron's reports
While Apple (AAPL) and Netflix (NFLX) both reported better than expected profit this week, Apple's shares look cheap based on strong cash generation. Netflix, on the other hand, had strong growth, but only generated a small cash profit, and therefore looks pricey, according to Barron's. Reference Link

Regarding the decline in ASPs or 'average selling price' on the iPhone, Apple said on its Q2 earnings call: "When you look at the $41 of decline, I would say about half of that was driven by the fact that we have continued to do very well in emerging markets with the 4S. I mentioned that there's a lot of markets where we've grown very strongly, in Latin America, in Asia-Pacific, in Eastern Europe. So about half of that decline came from the stronger sales of the 4S. And then the rest was primarily the fact that, again, as we move away from the quarter where we launch the product, we tend to have lower capacity mix in our numbers."

The shares have been stuck in a range of $59 at the low to a high of $65 since hitting peak price in early March. These bounds of range give us a guide for knowing when shares will have resolved, bullishly or bearishly. On better than expected news, a breakout above $65 would confirm that the shares are back on a bullish footing. Similarly, a breakdown below $59 would be an indication of deteriorating technicals and would be bearish for price. Resistance above $65 is at $67.09, and then at $69.63. Support below $59 is at $56.30, and then at $53.53.

12:52 EDTFBEarnings Preview: Facebook shares up more than 15% since last earnings report
Facebook (FB) is expected to report first quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, April 23 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Facebook is a social networking service with over 1B active users. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 24c on revenue of $2.36B. The consensus range is 19c-30c for EPS, and $2.14B-$2.52B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Facebook reported fourth quarter EPS of 31c against estimates of 27c, on revenue of $2.59B against estimates of $2.33B. The company reported daily active users of 757M on average for December, with Q4 revenue from advertising up 76% year-over-year to $2.34B. Mobile advertising revenue in Q4 represented 53% of the advertising revenue. NEWS: Facebook acquired messaging service WhatsApp for $16B, believing it is on a "clear path" to having 1B users and CEO Mark Zuckerberg saying it is "probably" worth more than $19B. WhatsApp recently announced that there are half a billion regular users of the app. Facebook also acquired Oculus for $2B, and the Wall Street Journal reported it acquired Titan Aerospace for an undisclosed amount. In the past quarter, Instagram reported over 200M monthly active users by the end of March. STREET RESEARCH: Analysts were mixed on Facebook's acquisition of WhatsApp. Piper Jaffray said the acquisition was neutral at best and is "beyond the typical overpaying." Facebook was downgraded at Argus due to possible risks in acquisition including a substantial write down should the texting platform not reach a billion users. Jeffries, on the other hand, said the acquisition could disrupt the global paid messaging industry. JMP Securities adds the acquisition is highly strategic and Stifel says it helps mute the risk that Google (GOOG) could enter the social media and communications market in a real way. The company's price target was raised at Sterne Agee, UBS, and Citigroup following the acquisition with Sterne Agee saying the application could reach 2B users and generate ARPU of $2.50 at 80% margins over the long-term. Analysts were more positive on the Oculus acquisition, with Piper Jaffray calling it a "major offensive move for the future" and JMP Securities saying it could create new opportunities over the next 5-10 years. Pacific Crest, however, says Facebook is unlikely to receive a significant return on the deal any time soon. Ahead of Q1 earnings, SunTrust says shares should be bought due to a rebounding revenue growth. Deutsche Bank and JMP Securities say that consensus estimates are catching up and the strong Q1 results may have already been factored into the consensus numbers. PRICE ACTION: Facebook shares have gained over $8.00, or over 15%, since the first day of trading following the company's Q4 report. In Wednesday afternoon trading ahead of its Q1 report, Facebook shares are down 2.25%.

10:06 EDTFBFacebook rises after Credit Suisse ups rating ahead of earnings
Shares of Facebook (FB) are climbing after Credit Suisse upgraded the stock in a note to investors last night. WHAT'S NEW: Credit Suisse analyst Stephen Ju now expects Facebook to obtain more revenue, on average, from each of its users than the firm had previously anticipated. New products that Facebook is developing should enable the company to obtain more revenue over the medium to long term without boosting its ad loads, the analyst contends. Other analysts are underestimating the amount of revenue that Facebook's new products will generate, added Ju. He upgraded Facebook to Outperform from Neutral and raised his price target on the shares to $87 from $65. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Yesterday research firm JMP Securities increased its first quarter estimates for Facebook, saying that the company's investments are causing advertisers to buy more ads on the website. The firm expects the social network's ad sales to continue to be strong as it launches new types of ads. It reiterated an $82 price target and Outperform rating on the stock. Facebook is expected to report first quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, April 23, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Facebook climbed $1.47, or 2.4%, to $62.71.

16:40 EDTGOOGOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher after Fed Chair Janet Yellen struck a dovish tone in comments to the Economic Club of New York, which was in step with the minutes of the last FOMC meeting released last week. The Fed also released its latest Beige Book report, which indicated that economic activity increased in most regions after the severe winter weather that gripped much of the country to start the year had let up. Corporate earnings season continues to pick up steam, with Dow members IBM (IBM) and American Express (AXP), as well as Google (GOOG), reporting after the market close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts in March were up 2.8% from the prior month to a rate of 946K, versus expectations for an increase of 7%. Building permits were down 2.4% to a 990K rate, versus expectations for a decline of 0.4%. Industrial production rose 0.7% in March, which was ahead of the 0.5% forecast. The Fed's Beige Book report indicated that economic activity rebounded and strengthened in most regions over the last six week. In China, data showed its economy grew 7.4% in the first quarter from a year earlier, providing relief after recent signs that growth in the world's second largest economy has been slowing. COMPANY NEWS: Bank of America (BAC) fell 26c, or 1.59%, to $16.13 after the bank reported a first quarter loss of 5c per share, largely due to $6B in legal charges. Excluding the impact of this litigation expense, which was related to a previously announced settlement with the Federal Housing Finance Agency and other legacy mortgage-related matters, the banking major reported earnings that appeared to beat estimates... Yahoo (YHOO) gained $2.14, or 6.26%, to $36.35 after its quarterly report, with investors reacting most positively to the 66% year-over-year revenue growth reported by Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba, in which Yahoo holds a 24% stake. Yahoo's quarterly profit and revenue also beat expectations and the company's CEO Marissa Mayer said during its earnings webcast that the search giant's core business has moved from declining growth to stable to modest growth. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was CBS Outdoor (CBSO), which jumped $1.94, or 6.69%, to $30.96 after the IRS approved a plan for the company, which was just last week spun-off from its parent CBS (CBS), to convert into a real estate investment trust, or REIT. Other companies seeking REIT status, including Equinix (EQIX), Iron Mountain (IRM) and Lamar Advertising (LAMR), also rose following CBS' announcement. Also higher was drugmaker Zogenix (ZGNX), up 48c, or 20.51%, to $2.82 after confirming that a judge prevented a ban on sales of the company's Zohydro pain medication in Massachusetts. Among the noteworthy losers were U.S.-listed shares of Credit Suisse (CS), which fell 54c, or 1.7%, to $31.22 after the Swiss bank reported net income and revenue that fell when compared to the prior year. Also lower were Agnico Eagle Mines (AEM) and Yamana Gold (AUY) after agreeing to jointly acquire Osisko Mining. Angico shares fell $2.61, or 8.56%, to $27.88, while Yamana was down 36c, or 4.3%, to $8.02. INDEXES: The Dow was up 162.29, or 1.0%, to 16,424.85, the Nasdaq was up 52.06, or 1.29%, to 4,086.23, and the S&P 500 was up 19.33, or 1.05%, to 1,862.31.

12:45 EDTGOOGEarnings Preview: Google shares down 8% since last earnings report
Google (GOOG, GOOGL) is expected to report first quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, April 16 with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. Google is a global technology company that focuses on Internet search, cloud computing, and advertising technologies. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $6.39 on revenue of $15.52B. The consensus range is $5.83-$6.96 for EPS, and $14.94B-$16.12B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Google reported Q4 EPS $12.01 against estimates of $12.26 on revenue of $16.86B against estimates of $16.75B. Google reported Q4 paid clicks up 31% and average cost-per-click decreased approximately 11%. The company also reported Q4 Sites revenue $10.55B and Q4 Network revenue $3.52B. NEWS: Google effectively split its stock with a dividend distribution of Class C shares, which began trading in early April. In the past quarter, the company reached a deal with a European Union after sending an improved commitments proposal in context of the ongoing antitrust investigation on online search and search advertising. Google also announced that it resolved the copyright litigation with Viacom (VIA, VIAB). The company announced partnerships and agreements with VMware (VMW), Cisco (CSCO), and OmniVision (OVTI) as well as acquisitions of SlickLogin, Titan Aerospace and parts of Green Throttle Games. STREET RESEARCH: Cantor said Google is being boosted by product listing ads, which are expected to increase the company's 2014 ad revenue by $1B. Atlantic Equities and Bernstein said Google's weakness provides a buying opportunity, citing strong year-over-year revenue growth at "core Google." Bernstein added predictions that Google Play, Computer and App Engine, and Apps for Enterprise and government will become multi-billion dollar businesses. Ahead of the Q1 earnings, Susquehanna said the results should beat expectations due to continued website growth, PLAs, and early benefits from Enhanced Campaigns and YouTube. PRICE ACTION: Google shares have dropped over 8% since the first day of trading following the company's Q4 report. In Tuesday midday trading ahead of Q1 report, Google shares are down a little over 2%.
