12:48 EDTPG, EMN, ZNGA, MSFT, DECK, CECO, AMZN, CTCTOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly higher at midday after the tech-heavy Nasdaq index, which had been the leader in the morning hours, gave up nearly all of its early gains. The strength in the tech sector was largely attributable to advances by two of the titans in the space, Amazon.com (AMZN) and Microsoft (MSFT), following their earnings reports. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., durable goods orders climbed 3.7% in September, stronger than the expected 2.5% increase. Durable goods orders excluding transportation orders were down 0.1%, versus expectations for them to be up 0.5% in the month. The final University of Michigan consumer confidence reading for October was 73.2, versus an expected 75.0 reading. Wholesale trade inventories grew 0.5% in August , versus expectations for a rise of 0.4% for the month. COMPANY NEWS: Amazon shares rallied about 9% after the company reported third quarter losses that were in-line with forecasts and revenue that beat analysts' consensus expectation. Following its report at least eight firms raised their price targets on Amazon’s shares and Raymond James upgraded the stock to Strong Buy. Another tech giant, Microsoft, beat expectations on both the top and the bottom line and its stock advanced over 5%... Procter & Gamble (PG) reported earnings per share that matched expectations and backed its full-year outlook, though its shares slid nearly 1% after its report. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Career Education (CECO), which was up more than 50% near midday after the company last night announced a deal to sell its European education properties for $305M. Also higher was mobile game maker Zynga (ZNGA), which gained 11% after reporting a narrower-than-expected third quarter loss. Also higher following their quarterly reports were Constant Contact (CTCT), which rose over 18%, and Ugg-maker Deckers Outdoor (DECK), which advanced more than 19% near midday. Among the noteworthy losers was Eastman Chemical (EMN), which fell over 6% after cutting its FY13 EPS outlook and being downgraded to Neutral from Conviction Buy at Goldman. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 26.02, or 0.17%, to 15,535.23; the Nasdaq was up 6.86, or 0.17%, to 3,935.82; and the S&P 500 was up 2.72, or 0.16%, to 1,754.79.

08:13 EDTAMZNPendrell unit: Court rejects attempts to limit scope of DRM patents
ContentGuard Holdings, a subsidiary of Pendrell Corporation (PCO), announced that on Friday, March 20, Judge J. Rodney Gilstrap of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas issued a 144 page Claim Construction Order in lawsuits ContentGuard filed against several companies who continue to use its patented Digital Rights Management solutions without a license, including Apple (AAPL), Amazon.com (AMZN), DirecTV (DTV), Google (GOOG), HTC, Huawei, Motorola Mobility and Samsung Electronics (SSNLF). In his order, Judge Gilstrap interpreted the language in ContentGuard’s patents in a manner that fully preserves the breadth of ContentGuard’s patented Digital Rights Management technologies. These technologies were developed to enable the distribution of digital media over the Internet and other networks, including cellular and satellite networks, and provide innovative solutions to problems that were once thought to be unsolvable. “We are very pleased with the Court’s ruling,” commented James Baker, ContentGuard’s Vice President for Licensing and Strategic Development. “We believe these claim constructions demonstrate that the online stores defendants provide for buying and renting DRM-protected movies, videos, books, and music and devices that play, run, display or print this DRM-protected content infringe ContentGuard’s pioneering DRM patents.”
