12:51 EDTSWFT, VRSN, V, DTLK, WCG, AMZN, MLNX, POn 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 calendarís 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.

11:22 EDTPPandora rallies after CEO share purchase
The stock is being pushed higher by word that the CEO of the company made a purchase of 25,000 shares following the recent lows at $17.55. At the current price of $20.97 resistance is at the bottom of the bearish gap down in price from October 24th at $21.17. A move higher puts the shares back into the gap for a bullish gap fill. Resistance would be at $22.48 thereafter. Support is at $20.31. Approximately 10% of the float is short which is likely contributing to a squeeze higher.
11:05 EDTPPandora jumps following CEO share purchase
Shares of Pandora (P) are rallying after the company's CEO disclosed that he had bought 25,000 shares of the company's stock. WHAT'S NEW: In a regulatory filing last night, Pandora CEO Brian McAndrews disclosed that he had bought 25,000 of the company's shares on Wenesday at a price of $18.58 per share. McAndrews now owns over 475,000 shares of the stock, according to the filing. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors, Stifel analyst Scott Devitt wrote that McAndrews purchased the stock using his own personal funds. According to the analyst, it is quite rare for CEOs to take such an action. McAndrews' purchase of the stock was "a strong vote of confidence" in the company, Devitt contended. He kept a $29 price target and Buy rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Pandora announced that it would hold a conference call next Tuesday to discuss proceedings before the Copyright Royalty Board. The board will determine the company's new royalty structure by December 2015, Devitt wrote. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Pandora climbed $2.30, or 12.5%, to $20.75.
