12:32 EDTG, CI, AAPL, ATHN, EXPE, BEBE, LNKDOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday despite a second straight monthly jobs report that fell significantly short of expectations. Stock futures rapidly fell after the jobs data was reported, but recovered and closed the pre-market session higher, leading to an up open for the broader market. The averages gained upside momentum near mid-morning and stand close to session highs near midday. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., 113,000 non-farm jobs were added last month, versus the expected increase of 180,000 jobs. The unemployment rate fell to 6.6%, hitting its lowest level since October 2008. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple (AAPL) climbed 2% after CEO Tim Cook revealed to the Wall Street Journal that the company has bought back $14 billion of its own shares since it reported its earnings on January 27. Cook said he wants to be "aggressive" and "opportunistic" with the company's buyback program, noting that Apple had bought back a record total of more than $40 billion of its own shares over the past year... Shares of professional networking company LinkedIn (LNKD) fell 7% after the company reported better than expected fourth quarter results, but issued a disappointing revenue forecast for the first quarter and fiscal 2014. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were healthcare services company athenahealth (ATHN), which rose 25%, and women's apparel retailer bebe stores (BEBE), which advanced 18%. Also rising were shares of Expedia (EXPE) and its fellow online travel agencies after Expedia reported stronger than expected fourth quarter results. Among the noteworthy losers was IT services provider Genpact (G), which fell 19% after the company said it expects the revenue headwinds it faced in 2013 to continue and its stock was downgraded at Wells Fargo and JPMorgan. Also lower were shares of health insurer Cigna (CI), which tumbled 8.5% after issuing a disappointing profit forecast for fiscal 2014 and being downgraded by research firm Susquehanna. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 92.89, or 0.59%, to 15,721.42, the Nasdaq was up 50.10, or 1.23%, to 4,107.23, and the S&P 500 was up 14.57, or 0.82%, to 1,788.00.

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.
