13:01 EDTMMMOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday amid another deluge of earnings reports. Stocks began the session in negative territory and have remained there through the morning before crossing into positive ground right near noon. The averages gapped up after making it back to the green, putting the Nasdaq back above the all-time closing record it achieved in 2000. A question for the afternoon will be whether the average can hold on to set a new all-time closing high fifteen years later. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims inched up 1K to 295K in the week ended April 18, versus the expected 287K first-time claims. Markit's flash manufacturing PMI fell 1.5 points to 54.2 in April, versus expectations for it to hold steady at 55.7. New home sales dropped 11.4% to a 481K rate in March, versus expectations for a less severe 4.5% drop to a 515K rate. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Time Warner Cable (TWC) slid about 1% after The Wall Street Journal reported that the FCC's staff recommended a course of action that could derail the company's merger with Comcast (CMCSA). However, research firm Jefferies remained upbeat on Time Warner Cable shares, upgrading the stock this morning and saying that Charter (CHTR) would probably buy the company if the government nixes the Comcast deal... Among members of the Dow that issued earnings reports this morning, Caterpillar (CAT) slid fractionally while 3M (MMM) and Procter & Gamble (PG) each fell about 2%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was ARRIS (ARRS), which jumped 21% after the company agreed to acquire its competitor Pace for aggregate stock and cash consideration of $2.1B. Also higher following their earnings reports were Skechers (SKX), which rose nearly 13%, and Dunkin' Brands (DNKN), which gained 8.5%. Among the noteworthy losers was MobileIron (MOBL), which plunged 22% after the company warned of a Q1 revenue miss and announced the resignation of its CFO. Also lower following their earnings reports were Texas Instruments (TXN), which fell 7%, and General Motors (GM), which declined nearly 4%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 81.31, or 0.45%, to 18,119.58, the Nasdaq was up 22.69, or 0.45%, to 5,057.86, and the S&P 500 was up 10.32, or 0.49%, to 2,118.28.

12:31 EDTCREEOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after having been on a bit of a see-saw during morning trading. The averages opened in positive territory, soon turned negative, then back into positive ground following the release of a better than expected existing home sales report. The housing data was followed by a lift in the averages, which remained in positive ground near noon. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., existing home sales rose 6.1% to a 5.19M rate in March, which was better than the expected 3.1% increase to a rate of 5.03M. Crude oil inventories built up by 5.32M barrels last week, which was more than the consensus forecast for a 3.2M barrel build. In Asia, Japan's Nikkei 225 average closed above 20,000 for the first time since April 2000. In Europe, Germany raised its economic growth forecast for 2015 to 1.8%, which was up from the 1.5% growth it said it expected in January. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of McDonald's (MCD) advanced 2% after the company reported headline earnings that missed expectations but also said it is developing a turnaround plan to improve its performance and deliver "enduring profitable growth" that it plans to share in the first week of May. Also rising after its quarterly report was another globally recognized brand, Coca-Cola (KO), whose shares gained 1% after its comparable earnings per share topped the consensus estimate. A third member of the Dow, Boeing (BA), slid over 2.5% after its earnings beat expectations but its revenue fell short of the consensus forecast... Visa (V) rose 5% and MasterCard (MA) advanced over 4% after China's State Council announced overnight that the country will regulate the market access for bankcard transaction clearing institutions, which analysts think might allow both companies to compete for the processing of domestic transactions in the country. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Angie's List (ANGI), which jumped 12% after the company reported it was profitable in the first quarter and announced an exclusive relationship that will see carpet manufacturer Shaw Industries give the company's members exclusive product offers. Also higher was ASML (ASML), which gained 11% after announcing that it has signed an agreement with one of its "major U.S. customers" to deliver a minimum of 15 ASML EUV, or Extreme Ultraviolet, lithography systems. Afterward, Summit Research said it thinks the most likely buyer is Intel (INTC), which the firm believes does not want to be left behind if TSMC (TSM) puts EUV to use in 10nm processing. Among the noteworthy losers was Natural Resource Partners (NRP), which dropped 19% after the company slashed its quarterly distribution by 75% to 9c per unit. Also lower following their earnings reports were ADTRAN (ADTN), which fell over 9%, Cree (CREE), which slid 9%, and Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), which declined 6%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 28.69, or 0.16%, to 17,978.28, the Nasdaq was up 6.66, or 0.13%, to 5,020.77, and the S&P 500 was up 5.24, or 0.25%, to 2,102.53.
