10:43 EDTCCitigroup to resubmit capital plan in 2015, address issues in 2014
Citigroup CEO Michael Corbat said at today's annual meeting, "Based on our conversations with the Federal Reserve, we don't believe their objection was owing to an issue with our business model, our strategy, levels of capital, or capability to generate capital. We are consulting closely with the Fed to identify exactly where they believe our procedures fall short, so that we can fix the problems they've identified. And rather than resubmitting this year, we've decided to focus our energies on addressing those issues in preparation for our 2015 capital plan. This will require investment in new talent, the acceleration of spending on certain systems, and changes to the way we build, validate and test our scenarios....I want, and our shareholders deserve, an industrial strength, permanent solution that paves the way for sustainable capital return over time. And achieving that will be my highest priority for the remainder of 2014."

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%.

08:05 EDTCCitigroup reports Q1 loan loss reserve release of $673M
Reports Q1 net credit losses of $2.4B, down 15% versus prior year period. CVA/DVA was $7M, or $4M after-tax, in the first quarter, compared to negative $319M, or negative $198M after-tax, in the prior year period. Q1 included a $210M tax charge related to corporate tax reforms enacted in two states. These reforms lowered marginal tax rates, resulting in a reduction in Citigroup’s state deferred tax assets. CEO Michael Corbat said, “Despite a quarter that was difficult for our company, we delivered strong results. Both our consumer and institutional businesses performed well and we grew both loans and deposits while holding the line on our expenses. We reduced our deferred tax assets more than any other quarter since the crisis and drove Citi Holdings closer to break even. $4B in net income helped generate $6B in regulatory capital during the quarter and increased our estimated Tier 1 Common ratio to 10.4% on a Basel III basis. Very cognizant of our shareholders desire to see a sustainable return of capital, we are engaged with the Fed to better understand their expectations regarding the CCAR process. We are committed to bringing our capital planning process to the highest possible standards, befitting an institution of our global reach. I will dedicate whatever resources and make whatever changes necessary to achieve this critical goal."
