11:46 EDTJCPMacy's shares trading lower as Q2 results fall short of expectations
Shares of Macy's (M), a retailer that sells a range of merchandise, including apparel, accessories and home furnishings, are lower after the company's second earnings missed analysts' expectations. WHAT'S NEW: The company reported Q2 earnings per share 80c on revenue of $6.23B, falling short of analysts' estimates of 86c and $6.3B, respectively. Comparable sales were up 3.4% for the quarter and comparable sales together with comparable sales of departments licensed to third parties were up 4%. Chief Executive Officer Terry Lundgren noted that even with an improved sales trend in Q2, the company could not make up its sales shortfall from the first quarter. Looking ahead, Macy's reaffirmed its fiscal year 2014 EPS view of $4.40-$4.50 against estimates of $4.47, but cut its FY14 SSS view to 1.5%-2% from 2.5%-3%. Second half same store sales are expected to be up 2%-3%, and the company said expectations for the second half of the year are "on track." Lundgren said the company is approaching 2H with "confident optimism." WHAT'S NOTABLE: On the company's earnings conference call, Macy's Chief Financial Officer Karen Hoguet said the retail expects third quarter SSS to be lower than fourth quarter, adding that it "feels good" about the back half of the year. Macy's said that it sees fall season EPS, or the combined EPS for Q3 and Q4, of $3.04-$3.14 and expects total sales for the second half of the year to be about 30 basis points lower than comp growth. Macy's sees gross margins flat to down slightly for the year and fall season. ANALYST OPINION: This morning, UBS analysts said the Q2 miss could signal Macy's have been unable to generate incremental margin support from brands into increasingly promotional sales trends. Morgan Stanley analysts, meanwhile, believes the Q2 miss and the pullback in shares will be temporary and it presents a buying opportunity. The firm expects more margin misses over the next few weeks due to the promotional environment and remains convinced that Macy's key strategies are still in the early stages of delivering results. PRICE ACTION: In late-morning trading, shares of Macy's dropped $2.89, or 4.84%, to $56.88. OTHERS TO WATCH: J.C. Penney (JCP), which reports earnings tomorrow, is down 2.15%. Nordstrom (JWN), which also reports earnings tomorrow, is relatively flat.

Baird said Amazon's (AMZN) launch of the "Local Register" payment and card reader system is not a surprise after the company's acquisition of assets from GoPago and that the move is complementary to Amazon's e-commerce platform. Baird said Amazon's system will compete with Square and eBay's (EBAY) payment product "Here" and added that it expects Google (GOOG) and Apple (AAPL) to expand their existing payment initiatives. The firm maintains its Outperform rating and $400 price target on Amazon.com.

05:47 EDTAAPLApple December quarter margins likely down sequentially, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray says itís likely that Apple's December quarter margins decline quarter-over-quarter due to the impact of the updated iPhone 6. Piper does not view the potential margin decline as a long-term negative, however, noting that Apple showed with the iPhone 5S that margins can expand as the company moves away from new design launches. Piper says it remains a buyer of Apple shares with an Overweight rating and $105 price target.

10:07 EDTAAPLVirnetX says court denies Apple motion in patent suit
VirnetX (VHC) announced that on August 8 the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division, issued its patent claim construction, or "Markman" Order and ruled on a VirnetX motion in the ongoing patent infringement action between VirnetX and Apple (AAPL). Both parties had presented arguments on the disputed terms along with various other motions at a Markman hearing on May 20. In the Markman order, the court denied Apple's Motion for Summary Judgment of Indefiniteness, in which Apple alleged that some of the disputed claims terms in the patents asserted by VirnetX were invalid for indefiniteness. In a separate order, the court granted in part and denied in part VirnetX's Motion for Partial Summary Judgment on Apple's Invalidity Counterclaims. The court's order precludes Apple from asserting invalidity as a defense against infringement of the claims that were tried before a jury in VirnetX's prior litigation against Apple. Apple is not precluded from asserting invalidity as a defense against infringement of the claims that were not tried before a jury in the Apple I case. "We are extremely pleased with the court's rulings and we remain confident in the merits of our complaint against Apple," said Kendall Larsen, VirnetX CEO and President. "We believe the court's Markman Order and motion ruling represents another significant step towards the successful resolution of this litigation."
