13:21 EDTAMZNEarnings Preview: Amazon shares up almost 7% over last three months
Amazon.com (AMZN) is expected to report second quarter earnings after the market close on Thursday, July 24 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Amazon.com is an online retail company that also provides consumer electronics and cloud computing services. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of (15c) on revenue of $19.34B. The consensus range is (51c)-7c for EPS, and $19.0B-$19.65B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Amazon.com reported first quarter EPS of 23c against estimates of 23c, on revenue of $19.74B against estimates of $19.43B. The company gave Q2 revenue guidance of $18.1B-$19.8B and Q1 operating income guidance of ($455M)-($55M). In its earnings conference call, Amazon said its AWS usage and third party growth continues to be strong. NEWS: Amazon announced the launches of a Fire Phone with a 4.7-inch display with Gorilla Glass 3. It also announced an unlimited ad-free music streaming service called Prime Music and a Kindle Unlimited subscription service. Amazon expanded same-day shipping service by allowing later ordering times as well as adding Sunday delivery to 15 cities in addition to Los Angeles and New York. The company also continued in a public battle with publisher Hachette as it refused orders and buying less inventory. ChannelAdvisor reported Amazon SSS grew 27% in April, 28.1% in May and 34.4% in June. STREET RESEARCH: Piper Jaffray said Amazon's music service is irrelevant due to its relatively low amount of songs, but will become relevant over time. It also said that the Amazon smartphone is a good start, although it lacks an app ecosystem. BMO Capital said the company's device could help drive additional wallet share and may spur additional consumers to buy Prime memberships. JMP Securities adds that the phone may take some time for it to gain meaningful share. Ahead of earnings, the company was downgraded at Citigroup, citing Amazon's "aggressive investment" in web services could pressure earnings over the next few quarters. PRICE ACTION: Amazon.com shares have risen more than $23, or 6.9%, over the last three months. In Thursday midday trading ahead of the Q2 report, Amazon.com shares are up fractionally.

12:32 EDTQCOMOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly higher at midday amid another wave of earnings reports, headlined by Facebook (FB), Caterpillar (CAT), General Motors (GM) and Ford (F). The market has moved in a narrow range as investors try to digest the bevy of earnings reports that were released last night and this morning. The market has also had to battle a negative economic report on new home sales, which not only disappointed in June but saw the prior month revised lower as well. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims dropped 19K to 284K in the week ended July 19. While the BLS said there were no special factors in the claims data, they also reminded that the numbers can be very volatile at this time of year due in part to auto shutdowns. Markit's flash U.S. PMI for July dipped 1 point to 56.3 from 57.3 in June. June new home sales fell 8.1% to a 406K rate, which was worse than expected, and May's data was downwardly revised. In China, HSBC's flash manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index rose to 52 in July from 50.7 a month earlier. COMPANY NEWS: Facebook achieved a new all-time high and its share price eclipsed $76, a level that was more than double the price of its initial public offering, after its revenue and profits beat expectations. After the report a number of Wall Street analysts hiked their price targets on the stock, with Jefferies and Topeka both raising their targets on the social network operator's stock to $100... Shares of General Motors declined more than 3% after its earnings per share, excluding special items, missed consensus expectations and its revenue also fell short of the analysts' forecast. The company took a $400M special charge related to its ignition switch compensation program, but cautioned that there is no cap on this program and it is possible the total cost could increase by another $200M. Also, GM recorded a non-cash pre-tax special charge of about $900M in the second quarter for the estimated costs of future possible recalls for "up to the next 10 years on 30M GM vehicles on the road today." In contrast, Ford reported earnings per share, excluding special items, and revenue that beat expectations and its stock rose 1%... Caterpillar dropped over 3% after its quarterly revenue missed expectations and it narrowed its outlook for full-year revenue. However, the heavy machine maker's earnings did beat the consensus forecast and it raised it fiscal year profit outlook. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Sodastream (SODA), which jumped nearly 20% after Bloomberg said the home beverage system maker is in talks with an investment firm on deal that would make it a private company and value it at about $828M, or $40 per share. Also higher following their earnings reports were Under Armour (UA), which rose 15%, and Dr. Pepper Snapple (DPS), which gained 5%. Among the noteworthy losers following their earnings reports were homebuilder DR Horton (DHI), which fell 10%, online travel company TripAdvisor (TRIP), which dropped 9%, and semiconductor chip maker Qualcomm (QCOM), which slid 6%. Also lower was review service operator Angie's List (ANGI), which plunged 19% after reporting second quarter losses per share and revenue that were worse than expected, prompting a number of downgrades of its stock by Wall Street analysts. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 8.25, or 0.05%, to 17,094.88, the Nasdaq was up 6.10, or 0.14%, to 4,479.80, and the S&P 500 was up 2.98, or 0.15%, to 1,989.99.
