12:32 EDTWHROn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday as slides in a number of big name tech stocks following their earnings reports dominated the news flow and largely dictated the market's direction. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the FHFA home price index rose 0.4% to 222.8 in May, as expected. Existing home sales rose 3.2% to a 5.49M rate in June, better than the 0.9% increase that was expected. In Europe, the European Central Bank reportedly raised the cap on Greece's Emergency Liquidity Assistance by EUR900M to EUR90.4B, according to Bloomberg. COMPANY NEWS: The tech sector has been weak, headlined of course by a 5% pullback in shares of Apple (AAPL) after iPhone shipments in the just completed quarter and the company's sales forecast for the new quarter missed estimates. Adding to the negative tone in tech stocks, and contributing further to the decline in the Nasdaq, was the 3% drop seen in Microsoft (MSFT) shares after its quarterly report as well as Yahoo's (YHOO) 1% decline after its revenue outlook missed the consensus forecast... Shares of Boeing (BA) and Coca-Cola (KO) fared better than Dow peer Apple after each reported better than expected sales and profits, though neither stock was moving far from where they closed yesterday's trading. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Thoratec (THOR), which rose 10% after the company agreed to be acquired by St. Jude Medical (STJ) for $3.4 billion in cash, or $63.50 per share. St. Jude shares advanced fractionally after the deal, which had been foreshadowed by media reports yesterday, was announced. Also higher following their earnings reports were Intuitive Surgical (ISRG), which gained 10%, Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), which advanced 8% and Whirlpool (WHR), which was up 6%. Among the noteworthy losers were a number of suppliers to Apple that declined in tandem with the tech giant after it reported a sequential drop in iPhone sales. Skyworks Solutions (SWKS), Cirrus Logic (CRUS), Qorvo (QRVO) and NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) were among the many semiconductor stocks that slid following Apple's report. Also sharply lower was antibody-based therapeutics maker XOMA (XOMA), which plunged more than 73% and was downgraded to Neutral at Piper Jaffray after a Phase III trial of its gevokizumab drug in patients with Behcet's disease uveitis did not meet its primary endpoint. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 82.22, or 0.46%, to 17,837.07, the Nasdaq was down 42.68, or 0.82%, to 5,165.44, and the S&P 500 was down 6.93, or 0.33%, to 2,112.28.

09:07 EDTHCLPHi-Crush Partners cuts distribution to 47.5c from 67.5c per unit
Hi-Crush Partners announced last night that the board of its general partner has declared a cash distribution of 47.5c per unit on all common and subordinated units. Hi-Crush paid distributions of $2.40 per unit on all common and subordinated units for 2014 and $0.675 per unit for the first quarter 2015. The distribution will be paid on August 14 to all common and subordinated unit holders of record on August 5. "Market conditions resulting from reduced industry sand demand and pricing worsened this quarter with further price reductions and even lower demand. Our management team, along with the Board of Directors, determined that a reduction to the quarterly cash distribution was prudent as we do not expect a rebound in sand demand or pricing until 2016. We are expecting the remainder of 2015 to be challenging with continued uncertainty in the level of well completion activity, which is a key driver of sand demand. We expect to maintain the distribution at this level for the remainder of 2015," said Laura Fulton, CFO.

15:09 EDTWHRWhirlpool technical comments before earnings
The key technical feature, best seen on a 2-year chart, is an active bearish head and shoulders top. If the news continues to be bearish, the pattern may continue to develop. The downside potential for the pattern is to the $135 area over time. If the news is a bullish surprise, the first important resistance is not until the neckline of the head and shoulders which is at $175. It would take a breakout above the neckline to halt the pattern, with next resistance at $178.84.
