09:07 EDTAAPLMaxim starts Apple at Hold on non-China iPhone slowdown
Maxim analyst Nehal Chokshi initiated shares of Apple with a Hold rating and $144 price target. After surveying over 800 international consumers, Chokshi thinks iPhone demand in non-Greater China markets will likely be down 16% year-over-year in 2015. The analyst points out, however, that the survey suggests iPhone demand should continue at a 100% rate for 2015 relative to 2014, a data point he calls "significantly positive." Chokshi views Apple as a "very attractive long-term investment," but thinks mature market smartphone lifecycles will trump the strong share gains in China this year.

13:26 EDTAAPLOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, with the Dow and S&P 500 slightly lower and the Nasdaq clinging to a narrow gain. The broader market opened in positive territory and the averages moved in a narrow trading range during the morning. The Nasdaq has been the strongest of the indices since the open, though early gains from Apple (AAPL) and Qualcomm (QCOM) had evaporated by near midday, taking a bite out of the gains the index had been seeing earlier in the session. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major economic data was released. In China, export sales unexpectedly contracted 15% in March, while imports shrank 12.7% last month from a year ago. The March fall in imports was in line with forecasts, unlike the one for exports, which were expected to rise 12%. COMPANY NEWS: Activist investor Jana Partners is putting pressure on Qualcomm to increase stock buybacks and take other actions to increase shareholder value, including an exploration of spinning off its chip unit from its patent-licensing unit. In response to statements made by JANA, Qualcomm noted that it recently increased its stock repurchase authorization to $15B and repeated that it plans to repurchase $10B of common stock within one year. Barry Rosenstein of JANA Partners, while speaking on CNBC, said Qualcomm should buy back $15B of its shares over the next six months, before the company undertakes strategic actions that could move the stock higher... Apple shares were rising early in the trading day but had given up their gains by midday. Pre-orders of its new Apple Watch started Friday. The company did not release any sales figures for the first weekend, but research firm Slice Intelligence estimated that nearly one million customers in the U.S. preordered the device on the first day it was available. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Alamos Gold (AGI), which rose 6%, and AuRico Gold (AUQ), which rose 7%, after the companies announced an agreement to combine via "a merger of equals" with a transaction equity value of about $1.5B. Upon completion of the deal, former Alamos and AuRico shareholders will each own approximately 50% of the new Alamos Gold and a new company, to be named AuRico Metals, will be created to hold AuRico's Kemess project and some other assets. The newly formed company will own a 4.9% equity interest in the spinoff and the remaining "SpinCo" shares will be distributed 50% each to former Alamos and AuRico shareholders. Also higher was Builders FirstSource (BLDR), which gained 65% after announcing that it has entered into an agreement to acquire ProBuild Holdings in an all-cash transaction valued at about $1.63B. Among the noteworthy losers was Basic Energy (BAS), which fell 8% after Raymond James downgraded the stock to Market Perform based on valuation, substantial pricing pressure, and industry overcapacity. Also lower were U.S.-listed shares of Sina (SINA), which dropped 5% after the Financial Times reported that China's government has warned that it will shut down the company's service if it does not "improve censorship." INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 19.08, or 0.11%, to 18,038.57, the Nasdaq was up 7.93, or 0.16%, to 5,003.91, and the S&P 500 was down 3.04, or 0.14%, to 2,099.02.

As previously reported, Raymond James analyst Tavis McCourt downgraded Apple to Market Perform from Outperform ahead of Q2 results. McCourt raised estimates due to iPhone strength in China and stronger buyback activity but believes FY16 comps get tougher and Apple Watch expectations could fall short. He said early reviews of Apple Watch have been muted and could add to investors' fears regarding the company's ability to launch a new successful product. McCourt views Apple's valuation as in-line with large-cap tech peers and expects shares to remain range-bound.

Google's (GOOG) revenue could actually rise if Apple (AAPL) decides to drop Google as the default search engine on its Safari web browser, according to Business Insider, which cited a note from Goldman Sachs. If Apple drops Google, 48% of Safari users polled by Goldman said they would utilize Google's search engine anyway, Business Insider quoted Goldman as saying. If Google is able to retain 50%-70% of the ad revenue generated by Safari users after being removed as Safari's default search engine, Google's profits will rise about 5%-10%, since Google pays Apple for its default status, Business Insider quoted Goldman as saying.

Citigroup analyst Jeremy David downgraded Garmin two notches to Sell from Buy saying competitive pressures are likely to stall the growth of the company's GPS fitness watch business. He also thinks revenue trends in Garmin's Outdoor segment could disappoint as the year progresses. David expects Garmin to miss consensus earnings and revenue expectations in Q1 and views the Apple (AAPL) Watch launch as another potential negative catalyst for shares. He cut his price target for the stock to $42 from $68. Shares of the navigation and information device maker closed Thursday down 58c to $46.49 after Goldman Sachs downgraded the stock Neutral from Buy.
