10:03 EDTCHKChesapeake PRB swap, Utica buyback positive, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo views the Powder River Basin asset swap that Chesapeake executed and its plans to repurchase preferred shares of its Utica subsidiary as positives for the company, as the swap provides it with a more concentrated, high-quality acreage position and the repurchase simplifies its capital structure. However, the firm noted that the company's Q2 pricing update brings down its EPS estimate for the quarter by 4c. Wells maintains its Market Perform rating on the stock.

Chesapeake also announced that it has agreed in principle to repurchase all of the outstanding preferred shares of its unrestricted subsidiary, CHK Utica from third-party preferred shareholders. Under the agreement, Chesapeake will pay approximately $1.26B to repurchase 1,060,000 preferred shares of CHK Utica. The proposed transaction, which is expected to close today, will retire Chesapeake’s highest cost leverage instrument and eliminate approximately $75M in annual cash dividend payments to third-party preferred shareholders. Chesapeake plans to fund the cash portion of the RKI acreage exchange and the repurchase of the CHK Utica preferred shares with available liquidity, including nearly $1.5B of unrestricted cash held on its balance sheet as of June 30. Chesapeake continues to refine its portfolio to focus on assets that best align with the company’s strategy of profitable growth from captured resources and expects to close additional sales of noncore assets, including non-E&P assets, by the end of 2014.

16:49 EDTAMZN, BAS&P ends week little changed amid earnings deluge
The S&P 500 finished little changed this week as mixed U.S. economic data and continued geopolitical uncertainty offset strong earnings from a number of major companies and upbeat overseas economic data. MACRO NEWS: U.S. economic data was mixed, as fewer than expected jobless claims were reported and durable goods orders for June were slightly higher than expected, but new home sales for June and a preliminary purchasing managers' index for July came in below expectations... Investors received some positive economic news from overseas, as HSBC's preliminary China purchasing managers' index for July reached an 18-month high. Meanwhile, a preliminary PMI for the euro zone for July came in at 54, versus 52.8 in June... Ongoing conflicts between Israel and Hamas and Russia and Ukraine kept investors on edge, with Friday reports indicating that no truce accord had been reached in Israel and that Russia was building up its troop presence along the Ukrainian border. COMPANY NEWS: Among the notable companies whose stocks rose after they reported quarterly results were Facebook (FB), Apple (AAPL), Allergan (AGN) and Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG). Notable companies whose stocks sold off following their results included Netflix (NFLX), Harley-Davidson (HOG), General Motors (GM), Boeing (BA), McDonald's (MCD) and Pandora (P)... McDonald's was also hit this week by revelations that its restaurants in China had sold expired meat that was allegedly intentionally supplied by a China-based company. Yum! Brands (YUM) and a provider of products to Starbucks (SBUX) are also believed to have bought and sold expired meat from the supplier... In M&A news, Bloomberg reported that real estate website operator Zillow (Z) held talks about buying its rival, Trulia (TRLA). Both stocks surged. Shares of SodaStream (SODA) also rallied after Bloomberg reported that the company is in talks about selling itself to an investment firm that would take the beverage system maker private... On Monday, hedge fund manager Bill Ackman promised on CNBC that his presentation about Herbalife (HLF) would show why the company "is going to collapse." But the shares actually surged higher during and immediately after Ackman's presentation. Ackman has a large short position in the stock and notably alleged it is a pyramid scheme... BlackBerry's (BBRY) CEO told the Financial Times that his company was in early talks about partnering with companies to target the enterprise markets, in order to counter a recently announced partnership between Apple and IBM (IBM). INDEXES: For the week, the Dow fell 0.83% to 16,960.57, the Nasdaq rose 0.4% to 4,449.56, and the S&P was flat at 1,978.34.

12:51 EDTAMZNOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday and on track to end a week marked by a torrent of earnings reports on a definite down note. Some high-profile disappointments weighed on the major averages, as Visa (V) and Amazon.com (AMZN) both fell significantly after their quarterly reports last night, dragging on the Dow and Nasdaq, respectively. The domestic economic calendar’s sole release of consequence, the durable goods orders report, came out before the open and was better than expected, but that did little to brighten the market's negative tone. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., durable goods orders rebounded 0.7% in June after a 1.0% decline in the prior month, beating expectations for June increase of 0.5%. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Amazon.com fell 10% after the e-commerce giant reported in-line second quarter revenue but a much higher than expected loss. A number of analysts responded to the news by downgrading the stock, while several others cut their price targets on the shares... Visa reported Q3 earnings per share and revenue that topped consensus forecasts, but its fiscal year EPS growth outlook was trimmed its fiscal year revenue growth view to be in the 9-10% range from its prior forecast for low double-digit constant revenue growth in the 10-11% range. Shares of the Dow Jones Industrial Average component slid 4% following the report and guidance. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were Datalink (DTLK), which jumped 17%, Mellanox (MLNX), which rose 13%, and VeriSign (VRSN), which gained 11%. Among the noteworthy losers was WellCare (WCG), which plunged 20% after the managed care company pre-announced significantly weaker than expected results. Also lower following their earnings reports were Swift Transport (SWFT), which fell nearly 15%, and Pandora (P), which dropped about 13%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 131.61, or 0.77%, to 16,952.19, the Nasdaq was down 24.45, or 0.55%, to 4,447.66, and the S&P 500 was down 9.04, or 0.45%, to 1,978.94.

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.

06:50 EDTBABoeing enters into agreement, engaged in talks with Iran regarding parts sales
Boeing said in a filing that during Q2 it entered into an agreement and engaged in related discussions with Iran Air pursuant to a license from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control. The agreement sets forth general terms and conditions with respect to the potential sale of certain goods and services related to the safety of flight, including airplane parts, manuals, drawings, service bulletins, and navigation charts and data. Boeing also engaged in discussions pursuant to the OFAC license with Iran Air Tours, a subsidiary of Iran Air, with respect to the sale of similar goods and services. Boeing applied for the OFAC license consistent with guidance from the U.S. Government in connection with ongoing negotiations between the “P5+1” nations and Iran related to, among other things, the safety of Iran’s civil aviation industry. Boeing generated no gross revenues or net profits during the second quarter in connection with these activities.

17:01 EDTBAOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session mixed and remained that way throughout the trading day, with the Nasdaq the leader and the Dow the laggard. The tech-heavy Nasdaq was helped by a post-earnings rise in shares of Apple (AAPL), while the blue-chip index was weighed down by Boeing's (BA) under-performance following its own quarter report. There was little movement in the averages during the day as they remained in a narrow range, but the increase in the S&P 500 did manage to push it to a new all-time closing high. After the bell, investors will receive the next wave of earnings with AT&T (T), Facebook (FB) and Qualcomm (QCOM) scheduled to report. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., MBA's mortgage market index rose 2.4%, with a 0.3% rise in the purchase index and a 4.1% gain in the refinance index for the week ended July 18. Also, the International Monetary Fund predicted that U.S. economic growth for 2014 as a whole will be a disappointing 1.7%. However, barring unforeseen shocks, 2015 growth should accelerate to the fastest annual pace since 2005, propelled by strong consumption growth, a declining fiscal drag, a pickup in residential investment, and easy financial conditions, said the IMF. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple advanced $2.47, or 2.61%, to $97.19 after reporting third quarter earnings that beat expectations. However, the iPhone maker's revenue came in a bit short of analyst expectations for its just completed quarter and its guidance for sales in the new quarter was also below expectations. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said Apple's September quarter guidance suggests an iPhone 6 launch on September 26, versus the firm's prior expectation for a September 19 launch. Piper views Apple's Q3 results as removing the last major variable ahead of the iPhone and iWatch launches later this year and reiterates an Overweight rating on the stock. Another research firm, Janney Capital, said Apple did not address rumored new products, like the iPhone 6 and iWatch, on its earnings call, but did indicate that its wider than normal revenue guidance range was due to "many moving pieces," suggesting one or two new products may be introduced, but late in the quarter... Dow component Boeing sank $3.03, or 2.34%, to $126.71 despite reporting "core" EPS that beat expectations and raising its fiscal year earnings outlook to a range above the Wall Street consensus. Boeing's revenue missed expectations, however, and it also reported its total company backlog of $440B was unchanged from the beginning of the quarter... Another Dow member, McDonald's (MCD), fell 92c, or 0.96%, to $95.35 after the company reported weaker than expected second quarter results yesterday and its stock was downgraded by at least five research firms. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Puma Biotechnology (PBYI), whose stock surged $174.40, or 295.44%, to $233.43 after the company reported positive data for its breast cancer drug and an analyst at Citigroup said that the company would probably become a takeover target. Also higher was Intuitive Surgical (ISRG), which rose $69.47, or 17.71%, to $461.63 and was upgraded at both Raymond James and Stifel after the company reported better than expected Q2 results. Among the noteworthy losers was Xilinx (XLNX), which tumbled $6.89, or 14.31%, to $41.26 after the company reported lower than expected first quarter revenue and forecast that its sales could drop as much as 4% in Q2 versus Q1. After the report, analysts at William Blair, Bank of America Merrill Lynch and BMO Capital all downgraded the stock. Also lower were shares of Juniper Networks (JNPR), which fell $2.39, or 9.63%, to $22.43 and was also downgraded at Bank of America Merrill Lynch after its Q3 guidance missed expectations. INDEXES: The Dow slid 26.91, or 0.16%, to 17,086.63, the Nasdaq rose 17.68, or 0.4%, to 4,473.70, and the S&P 500 gained 3.48, or 0.18%, to 1,987.01.

10:43 EDTHNTAppeals court bars subsidies in health care law
A three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down part of President Obama's healthcare law by siding today with plaintiffs who argued that the law barred the government from giving subsidies to people in states that chose not to set up their own insurance marketplaces. The appeals court stated, "Because we conclude that the ACA unambiguously restricts the section 36B subsidy to insurance purchased on Exchanges 'established by the State,' we reverse the district court and vacate the IRS’s regulation." Twenty-seven states decided against setting up marketplaces, and another nine states partially opted out, according to the Washington Post.
