16:25 EDTBA, C, BAC, BLK, KSWS, CBS, HLF, CLSNOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher as better than expected domestic economic data pushed the market up at the open and investors continued to buy through the session. The S&P 500 and Dow hit five-year highs in the second half of the session, but closed just off their best levels... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., weekly jobless claims fell to 335K, versus expectations for a relatively flat level at 370K. Housing starts surged 12.1% to 954K in December, which was better than expected, while building permits edged up 0.3% to 903K, which was in-line with forecasts. The day's lone disappointing data came from the Philly Fed, which had its manufacturing survey unexpectedly fall to -5.8, compared to consensus calls for a much smaller decline to a 6.0 reading... COMPANY NEWS: The FAA last night announced it was grounding all Boeing (BA) 787 flights until the safety of the plane's battery can be proven to the agency. Air India and EU flight regulators also joined the list of organizations that have grounded the Boeing plane, and while shares of Boeing opened lower, they advanced through the session and closed up 92c, or 1.24%, to $75.26... Financial giants Citigroup (C) and Bank of America (BAC) both reported earnings before today's open and shares of both banks lost ground on the day. Citigroup missed expectations and saw shares lose $1.24, or 2.92%, to $41.24, while Bank of America beat lowered EPS estimates but slid 50c, or 4.24%, to $11.28. BlackRock (BLK), however, advanced $9.76, or 4.39%, to $232.00 after it beat Street estimates and raised its dividend... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was K-Swiss (KSWS), which rose $1.52, or 47.65%, to $4.71 after agreeing to be acquired for $4.75 cash per share. Also higher were shares of CBS (CBS), up $3.01, or 7.93%, to $40.95 after announcing plans to convert its U.S. outdoor advertising business to a REIT and to seek to sell its outdoor operations in Europe and Asia. Among notable losers were shares of Herbalife (HLF), down $1.54, or 3.42%, to $43.52 after the company said it sees Q4 and FY12 EPS just above Street estimates and said it expects to begin repurchasing shares soon. Also lower were shares of Celsion (CLSN), down 79c, or 9.75%, to $7.31 following a downgrade to Sell at Brean Capital... INDICES: The Dow was up 84.79, or 0.63%, to 13,596.02; the Nasdaq was up 18.46, or 0.59%, to 3,136.00; and the S&P 500 was up 8.31, or 0.56%, to 1,480.94.

14:01 EDTBABoeing technical comments ahead of results
The stock has performed in line with returns from the broader averages over the last three months. The trend has been range bound with the bulk of the range contained at $118 at the low and $128.50 at the high. These two bounds become the defining markers for post-earnings reactions. A breakout above $128.50 would see first resistance at $130.31 and then at $132.99 and $133.97. The latter is a prior pivot high. If the news disappoints, it isn't likely that shares would reach the low of the range unless the news was an extreme disappointment. First support of significance would be at $124.10 and then at $122.16 and $120.29.

Boeing is investing more than $1B in the Everett site for construction and outfitting of the new building. Completion of the new building, which is expected in May 2016, will require approximately 3.5M hours of work. At its peak, there will be approximately 1.2K contract employees working on the project.

Bell also had improved performance in Q3, Donnelly said, leading to an increase in quarterly margins compared to last year. WHAT’S NOTABLE: The company raised its FY14 EPS from continuing operations view to $2.05-$2.15 from $1.92-$2.12, in line with analysts' consensus estimates of $2.07. Textron also raised its FY14 outlook for cash flow from continuing operations of the manufacturing group before pension contributions to $700M-$800M, with expected pension contributions of around $83M. On the company's earnings conference call, management said it saw a pickup of orders in September and October in the new aircraft market. The company said it is also seeing significant contributions from its M&A investments. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Textron rose $4.16, or about 12.4%, to $37.82 on heavy trading volume. Including today’s advance, the stock has gained approximately 36% over the past twelve months.
