16:36 EDTOCNOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher after a report showed existing homes sales hit their fastest pace in a year during September and Apple (AAPL) gave a better than expected sales forecast for its December quarter. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., existing home sales beat estimates in September, rising 2.4% from the prior month to a 5.17M rate. In China, GDP slowed to 7.3% year-over-year growth pace in Q3 from 7.5% in Q2, though that was slightly better than expected. Chinese industrial production expanded at a 8.0% rate in September, which was well above projections and up from 6.9% growth in August. China's retail sales grew 11.6% in September compared to the prior year, which was nearly in-line with expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple rose $2.71, or 2.72%, to $102.47 after the company reported better than expected quarterly results and gave a better than expected forecast for its sales during the holiday quarter. Following last night's report, analysts at Cantor Fitzgerald said the iPhone maker "executed impressively" in Q4 and provided a strong outlook for Q1. The firm, which believes investors should "start thinking more boldly" about the company, raised its price target for shares to $143 from $123 and kept a Buy rating on the stock... Five of the Dow's 30 members reported on their quarterly results this morning and Coca-Cola (KO) was the clear loser in the bunch. The soda giant's shares dropped $2.61, or 6.03%, to $40.68 after its revenue missed expectations, it warned that it now expects to be below its long-term EPS growth target for 2014, and the company announced new cost-saving measures. Among the other four, McDonald’s (MCD) fell 0.63%, Verizon (VZ) added 0.43%, United Technologies (UTX) gained 0.49%, and Travelers (TRV) rose 1.12%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were medical equipment manufacturer Waters (WAT), which rose $9.63, or 9.87%, to $107.17, and motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson (HOG), which advanced $4.27, or 7.31%, to $62.65. Among the noteworthy losers was Ocwen Financial (OCN), which plunged $4.78, or 18.2%, to $21.48 after the company was called out by the New York Department of Financial Services for erroneously dated letters to borrowers. Benjamin Lawsky, the Superintendent for the NYDFS, stated in his letter to the company that if his department concludes it cannot trust Ocwen's systems and processes, "then it cannot trust Ocwen is complying with the law." Also lower following their earnings reports were Mexican restaurant operator Chipotle (CMG), which fell $45.48, or 6.96%, to $607.55, and defense contractor Lockheed Martin (LMT), which slid $2.92, or 1.66%, to $172.61. INDEXES: The Dow gained 215.14, or 1.31%, to 16,614.81, the Nasdaq advanced 103.40, or 2.4%, to 4,419.48, and the S&P 500 rose 37.27, or 1.96%, to 1,941.28.

16:28 EDTCPOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street spent most of today's quiet session see-sawing across the flat-line before dropping sharply in the final hour of trading and closing at their lows. The market opened in negative territory but soon made a move to the upside and appeared ready to break the recent market slide that has seen the S&P lose about 5% of its value. Before the averages gained significant steam, they reversed again and moved back into negative ground. The averages moved in a fairly narrow range for most of the afternoon, before accelerating to the downside with conviction in the final hour of trading. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no economic data of note was reported and banks and bond markets were closed in observance of the Columbus Day holiday. In China, the nation's customs administration reported a trade surplus of about $31B for September. Exports in the month increased 15.3% from a year earlier, beating expectations and making for the biggest monthly increase since February 2013. Imports rose 7%, significantly outpacing the consensus projection for a 2% decline. COMPANY NEWS: The Wall Street Journal reported that CSX (CSX) was approached by a larger rival, Canadian Pacific (CP), about a possible merger. However, Credit Suisse analyst Allison Landry wrote in a note to investors that a merger between the two would not be able to occur, due to high regulatory hurdles. Still, CSX rose $1.76, or 5.88%, to $31.70 following the Journal's report, while Canadian Pacific fell $4.40, or 2.32%, to $184.97... Shares of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCAU) made their debut on the New York Stock Exchange and opened at $9 per share. The stock of the newly merged company closed trading down about 1% at $8.92... J.C. Penney (JCP) selected Marvin Ellison, who is currently executive vice president of stores at Home Depot (HD), to become its next CEO. The stock, which was also downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS this morning, spent much of the trading day in positive ground but moved lower late in the session and closed down 3c, or 0.42%, at $7.09. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Alnylam (ALNY), which advanced $13.83, or 18.98%, to $86.68 after the company announced data from study of its treatment for patients with familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy and Piper Jaffray raised its price target on the stock to $133 from $101 citing the trial results. Among the noteworthy losers was AutoNation (AN), which fell $4.11, or 8.01%, to $47.21 after another company in the same sector, Lithia Motors (LAD), lowered its profit outlook for the third and fourth quarter and issued a lower than expected earnings forecast for fiscal 2015. Shares of Lithia, meanwhile, plunged $16.85, or 20.84%, to $64.01. Also lower were shares of GoPro (GPRO), which fell $8.38, or 9.85%, to $76.67 after a French journalist reported that the son of racing legend Michael Schumacher attributed the severity of his father's brain injury following a skiing accident on the GoPro camera mounted to his helmet. INDEXES: The Dow fell 223.03, or 1.35%, to 16,321.07, the Nasdaq dropped 62.58, or 1.46%, to 4,213.66, and the S&P 500 declined 31.39, or 1.65%, to 1,874.74.

12:16 EDTCPOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly lower at midday amid light trading volume. Banks and bond markets are closed in observance of the Columbus Day holiday, though equity markets remain open. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major economic data was reported. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of a number of freight train operators rose after The Wall Street Journal reported that one of the companies in the sector, CSX (CSX), was approached by a larger rival, Canadian Pacific (CP), about a possible merger. Following the Journal's report, CSX rose 10% and Canadian Pacific advanced 1%, while Norfolk Southern (NSC) and Kansas City Southern (KSU) both climbed about 3%... Chrysler returned to the U.S. stock market, as shares of Fiat Chrysler began trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "FCAU." MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was J.C. Penney (JCP), which rose 3% after the company selected Marvin Ellison, who is currently executive vice president of stores at Home Depot (HD), to become its next CEO. Also higher were Atlas Energy (ATLS), which rose 20%, and Atlas Pipeline Partners (APL), which advanced 6%, after Targa Resources Partners (NGLS) and Targa Resources (TRGP) agreed to acquire Atlas Pipeline Partners for cash and stock valued at $38.66 per APL common unit and agreed to buy Atlas Energy following the company's spin-off of its non-midstream assets. Among the noteworthy losers was Aerohive Networks (HIVE), which plunged 30% after the company lowered its guidance for the third quarter, citing weaker-than-expected order volume near the quarter's end. Also lower were shares of GoPro (GPRO), which fell over 8% after a French journalist reported that the son of racing legend Michael Schumacher attributed the severity of his father's brain injury following a skiing accident on the GoPro camera mounted to his helmet. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 32.14, or 0.19%, to 16,511.96, the Nasdaq was down 7.97, or 0.19%, to 4,268.27, and the S&P 500 was down 6.85, or 0.36%, to 1,899.28.

08:24 EDTCPCSX price target raised to $37 from $32 at Bernstein
Bernstein raised its price target on CSX (CSX) after The Wall Street Journal reported that the company was approached by Canadian Pacific (CP) about a possible merger. The firm thinks the deal could enable CSX to more quickly raise its margins and presents it with an opportunity to unlock significant near-term value. Bernstein says the report makes it more constructive on CSX, but it keeps a Market Perform rating on the shares.

The report also noted that Albert Fried views Monster Beverage (MNST) and Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR) as other suitable targets for AB InBev. Reference Link
