18:27 EDTAMDSemiconductor stocks under pressure after TI, Qualcomm report financial results
Semiconductor stocks are under pressure after earnings reports from Texas Instruments (TXN) and Qualcomm (QCOM). TEXAS INSTRUMENTS: TI reported first quarter results that were lower than analyst expectations, and gave second quarter guidance below consensus estimates. In its Q1 earnings press release, Texas Instruments said its outlook for Q2 is for earnings per share between 60c-70c and revenue in the range of $3.12B-$3.38B. "Our estimates assume continuing weakness in our communications equipment and personal electronics markets, particularly for wireless infrastructure equipment and PCs, respectively. We also do not expect a near-term rebound in foreign currency exchange rates. The annual effective tax rate for 2015 is expected to be about 30%." QUALCOMM: Qualcomm reported Q2 results that were better than analyst's average estimates, but lowered its fiscal year 2015 EPS and revenue views. Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf said, "While we remain confident in the significant growth opportunities ahead, we are reducing our QCT outlook for fiscal 2015, primarily due to the increased impact of customer share shifts within the premium tier and a decline in our share at a large customer." PRICE ACTION: In after-hours trading, shares of Texas Instruments are down over 6%, while Qualcomm shares are down almost 3%. Other publicly traded companies in the space include AMD (AMD), Intel (INTC), Marvell (MRVL), Microchip (MCHP), Micron (MU), NVIDIA (NVDA), Altera (ALTR), Xilinx (XLNX), and Maxim Integrated (MXIM).

16:24 EDTAMDOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Friday
Stocks on Wall Street began the session deep in negative territory and remained there throughout the day. The losses were broad based, with the S&P 500 losing 1% and the Dow and Nasdaq each sliding about 1.5%. There was little in the way of buying, as the number of declining stocks dwarfed the number of advancing stocks. Fears about Greece exiting the euro, steps taken by securities regulators in China and inflation data here at home were all pointed to as potential contributors to the down day in the market. The slide also coincided with the expiration of options, which can lead to volatility and heavy volume. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the headline Consumer Price Index rose 0.2% in March, versus expectations for it to be up 0.3%. The "core" rate, excluding food and energy prices, rose 0.2%, as expected. The leading economic index rose 0.2% to 121.4 in March, versus expectations for it to be up 0.3%. The University of Michigan consumer sentiment index jumped 2.9 points to 95.9 in the preliminary print for April, topping expectations for a 94.0 reading. In China, announcements by Chinese securities regulators, the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges, and related bodies raised fears of a selloff in China. The China Securities Regulatory Commission imposed sanctions to try to control margin buying of stocks with borrowed money and the Securities Association of China said it will allow fund managers to lend stocks for short selling to increase the supply of shares. In Europe, strategists reportedly said a lack of progress in negotiations between Greece and its creditors had substantially increased the risk of Greece defaulting on its debt and even exiting the euro. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of both Comcast (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (TWC) dropped after Bloomberg, citing sources, reported that lawyers at the Justice Departmentís antitrust division are leaning toward making a recommendation to file suit to block the companies' proposed merger. Spokespeople for Comcast and TWC reportedly told Bloomberg they see "no basis" for a lawsuit to block the transaction. Comcast ended the day down $1.25, or 2.09%, to $58.42, while Time Warner Cable shares slid $8.59, or 5.43%, to $149.61... First the Wall Street Journal, then Bloomberg, reported that Teva Pharmaceutical (TEVA) is internally discussing a potential takeover bid for Mylan (MYL). Shares of both moved higher following the reports, which Mylan responded to by stating that it is fully committed to its stand-alone strategy, including its proposal to acquire Perrigo (PRGO). Mylan Chairman Robert Coury said that rumors of potential interest from Teva have been "circulating for some time," but that such a combination is "without sound industrial logic or cultural fit" and would be unlikely to receive antitrust regulatory clearances. Coury added that Mylan's board would "carefully consider" a bid if any party makes an "actual offer" to acquire the company. Shares of General Electric (GE) reported a loss of $1.35 per share due to large charges related to its planned exit from the majority of its GE Capital business. Adjusting for special items, GE's operating earnings per share of 31c topped the consensus forecast by 1c. Additionally, GE said it has received "strong inbound interest" in its GE Capital assets following the company's April 10 investor update. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were Celanese (CE), which rose $9.04, or 15.55%, to $67.18, and Mattel (MAT), which advanced $1.48, or 5.84%, to $26.75. Among the noteworthy losers after their quarterly reports were SerivceNow (NOW), which fell $9.55, or 11.53%, to $73.29, and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), which dropped 29c, or 10.28%, to $2.58. INDEXES: The Dow declined 279.47, or 1.54%, to 17,826.30, the Nasdaq fell 75.98, or 1.52%, to 4,931.81, and the S&P 500 dropped 23.81, or 1.13%, to 2,081.18.

07:50 EDTAMDAMD price target lowered to $3-$3.50 from $3.50-$4 at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo cut its price target on AMD after the company reported weaker than expected revenue and guidance. The firm sharply cut its estimates and now believes that it is important to emphasize the significant risks that the company faces given its continuing drop in sales and ongoing losses. Nonetheless the firm believe that AMD has valuable expertise in microprocessor and graphics circuit design from which, in time, it should be able to generate a profit. Wells keeps an Outperform rating.
