16:40 EDTIBM, GOOGOn 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.

12:47 EDTCSXOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday as the earnings season picks up steam. Stocks began the session sharply higher, with the market attempting to extend the rally that began on Monday. The move upward comes in spite of the day’s housing data coming in below expectations. This afternoon, investors will be watching the Fed’s Beige Book report in hopes it provides evidence that the economy is strengthening. 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, which includes anecdotal reports on business conditions in the various Fed districts, is due out at 2:00 pm ET. 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: Shares of Bank of America (BAC) were down over 2% near midday after the company reported a first quarter loss of 5c per share, which was influenced by $6B in legal charges. The $6B in litigation expense, which was related to a previously announced settlement with the Federal Housing Finance Agency and added reserves for other legacy mortgage-related matters, hurt the banks earnings by about 40c per share... Yahoo (YHOO) rose more than 6% after reporting first quarter profit and sales last night that beat expectations. A great deal of attention was also paid to the 66% year-over-year increase in revenue reported by Alibaba, the Chinese group of e-commerce sites in which Yahoo has a 24% stake. This morning, Wells Fargo upgraded its rating on Yahoo to Outperform from Market Perform and raised its price target range for shares to $45-$47 from $38-$40, while Jefferies assumed coverage of Yahoo and also raised its rating on the stock. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was SodaStream (SODA), which surged 9% after an Israeli website said that the company was in talks to sell a 10% or greater stake to a big name company such as PepsiCo (PEP), Dr Pepper Snapple (DPS), or Starbucks (SBUX). Also higher was drugmaker Zogenix (ZGNX), which gained nearly 10% after confirming that a judge prevented a ban on sales of the company's Zohydro pain medication in Massachusetts. Among the noteworthy losers was Agnico Eagle Mines (AEM), which fell 7.5% after agreeing to jointly acquire Osisko Mining in partnership with Yamana Gold (AUY). Yamana shares were also down 3%. Also lower following their earnings reports were ADTRAN (ADTN), which fell nearly 6%, and CSX (CSX), which dropped about 3%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 124.14, or 0.76%, to 16,386.70, the Nasdaq was up 37.86, or 0.94%, to 4,072.02, and the S&P 500 was up 13.52, or 0.73%, to 1,856.50.

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%.
11:23 EDTIBMInfosys falls after quarterly revenue trails estimates
Shares of Infosys (INFY), which consults on business information technology and systems integration, are falling after the company's fourth quarter revenue trailed analysts' consensus estimate. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Infosys reported fourth quarter earnings per share of 85c and revenue of $2.09B, compared to expectations of 79c and $2.11B, respectively. The company's CEO and Managing Director, S. D. Shibulal, said he was pleased that Infosys was able to double its growth rate for the full year compared to last year, though added that its performance in the last quarter of of the fiscal year had been "disappointing." The company noted that Infosys and its subsidiaries added 50 clients during the quarter and 238 during the year. Infosys forecast FY15 revenue growth of 7%-9%, compared to consensus of $9.06B. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Infosys said its board had decided to increase the dividend pay-out ratio to up to 40% of post-tax profits effective FY14. Infosys' current policy is to pay dividends up to 30% of post-tax profits. OTHERS TO WATCH: Like Infosys, Wipro (WIT) is an IT services and software solution consultant headquartered in India. Others in the business consulting space include Cognizant Technology (CTSH), IBM (IBM) and Accenture (ACN). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Infosys fell $3.49, or about 6.3%, to $52.09 on nearly twice its average daily trading volume. Shares of Cognizant were down about 0.75% to $48.12, while Wipro was up about 2.6% to $13.56.
