Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday following the unexpected early release of the minutes from the Fed's last rate setting meeting in March. The move higher has pushed the S&P above its all-time closing high, which was established last week, and has seen it set a new all-time intraday record as well. In addition to the Fed minutes, the President unveiled a budget proposal that calls for tough entitlement cuts, but those come paired with increased revenues, and China unexpectedly reported a trade deficit caused by higher than expected imports... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Federal Reserve decided to release the minutes from it last Federal Open Market Committee meeting at 9:00 am ET, which was five hours earlier than scheduled, because they were leaked yesterday to trade groups and some members of Congress. The minutes showed continued discussion over the costs and benefits of the Fed's bond-buying program, with several members saying it would "probably be appropriate to slow purchases later in the year and to stop them by year-end." However, many on the Street noted that the minutes were for a meeting that occurred prior to last Friday's disappointing monthly jobs report. Also, President Obama sent a $3.77T spending plan to Congress in a bid to revive deficit-reduction talks. In China, a rare trade deficit of $880M was reported for March, as imports surged 14.1% from a year earlier, outpacing a 10% rise in exports. Also of note, the World Trade Organization slashed its forecast for global trade growth in 2013 to 3.3% from its prior call for 4.5% growth, and S&P revised its outlook on Cyprus to Stable from Negative... COMPANY NEWS: Earnings season picked up a little bit of steam, with reports from ADTRAN (ADTN) and CarMax (KMX) sending their shares higher, while Titan Machinery (TITN) and Fastenal (FAST) declined following their quarterly results announcements... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Baidu (BIDU), which rose over 6% following an upgrade to Buy from Hold at 86 Research. Also trading higher were a number of ADTRAN's peers, including Finisar (FNSR), up nearly 7%, and Ciena (CIEN), up about 6%, following the telecommunication equipment provider's better than expected report. Among the noteworthy losers were Health Management Associates (HMA), which fell 17% after its preliminary view of its quarterly results fell short of expectations, and Bio-Reference Labs (BRLI), which slid 7% in an apparent delayed reaction to a "whistleblower" suit filed against it last week but widely circulated today... INDICES: Near 1 pm ET, the Dow was up 147.54, or 1.01%, to 14,821.00; the Nasdaq was up 58.03, or 1.79%, to 3,295.89; and the S&P 500 was up 19.43, or 1.24%, to 1,588.04.

06:47 EDTTITNTitan Machinery CEO: We remain encouraged by improvement in construction
CEO David Meyer adds, "The Agriculture industry continues to face a number of headwinds, including lower projected net farm income, and lower corn and soybean prices. This has impacted farmers’ sentiment and resulted in lower farmer spending for equipment as well as more cautious spending on parts and services. While this impacted our financial results in the quarter, we remain confident in our business model as well as the long-term agriculture industry outlook as farmers continue to carry strong balance sheets and the underlying demand for commodities rebuilds. Our International business continued to face challenges, including the impact of regional flooding in Serbia and Bulgaria as well as the geopolitical turmoil in Ukraine. This resulted in lower than anticipated revenue and a larger pre-tax loss for our International segment for the quarter... Based on our year-to-date results, and outlook for the remainder of fiscal 2015, we believe our construction segment will continue to improve but we expect this improvement to be offset by continued headwinds in the Agriculture and International segments of our business.”
