10:55 EDTFBPac Crest an outlier with bearish note on Facebook following Q1 report
After Facebook last night reported higher than expected first quarter profits but lower than expected revenue. several analysts reacted positively to the company's results, raising their price targets on the social network operator's stock. However, Pacific Crest went against the mostly bullish trend by recommending that investors avoid the stock. WHAT'S NEW: Facebook last night reported first quarter earnings per share of 42c, versus the consensus outlook of 40c. The social network operator's revenue came in below expectations, and the company said that foreign exchange trends negatively impacted its first quarter results. Facebook forecast that foreign exchange headwinds would increase this quarter. Facebook reported that it had 936M daily active users on average last month, an increase of 17% versus the same period a year earlier. Its monthly active users climbed 13% year-over-year to 1.44B in Q1. BULLISH TAKE: Adjusting for currency, Facebook's Q1 revenue would have been 3% higher than the Street's consensus outlook, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster stated. The online network's "story is firmly intact" as its results are likely to be boosted by the ramping of Instagram in 2016, WhatsApp in 2017 and Oculus in 2018, the analyst stated. He kept a $92 price target and Buy rating on the shares. Also upbeat was Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Sandler, who raised his price target on the stock to $100 from $90, saying that its currency headwinds "masked" strong Q1 results. The stock will "grind higher" on new revenue streams and product announcements, predicted Sandler, who kept a Buy rating on the shares. JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth raised his price target on the stock to $100 from $85, saying that the company reported strong Q1 results and that it is the best positioned Internet company over the next five years. Moreover, its video ads appear to be hitting a positive turning point, added Anmuth, who kept an Overweight rating on the name. BEARISH TAKE: Facebook's price per ad appears to have declined sequentially last quarter for the first time since early 2013, wrote Pacific Crest analyst Evan Wilson. If that trend continues, its price per ad growth will decelerate significantly this year, according to the analyst. Additionally, the company's margins are contracting and its new products are unlikely to make much of an impact this year, according to Wilson, who recommended that investors choose other stocks over Facebook. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Facebook slid 0.7% to $84 per share.

Credit Suisse said Facebook remains a top pick for 2015 and that its in-line quarter strengthened the firm's Outperform thesis. The firm said the quarter reaffirmed its conviction that Facebook will be able to drive revenue growth without a material increase in ad loads, consensus estimates underestimate long-term monetization potential of new products, and upward bias to estimates from Offers/Local, Instagram, WhatsApp, Oculus, and others. Credit Suisse's price target on Facebook remains $106.

12:31 EDTBAOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after having been on a bit of a see-saw during morning trading. The averages opened in positive territory, soon turned negative, then back into positive ground following the release of a better than expected existing home sales report. The housing data was followed by a lift in the averages, which remained in positive ground near noon. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., existing home sales rose 6.1% to a 5.19M rate in March, which was better than the expected 3.1% increase to a rate of 5.03M. Crude oil inventories built up by 5.32M barrels last week, which was more than the consensus forecast for a 3.2M barrel build. In Asia, Japan's Nikkei 225 average closed above 20,000 for the first time since April 2000. In Europe, Germany raised its economic growth forecast for 2015 to 1.8%, which was up from the 1.5% growth it said it expected in January. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of McDonald's (MCD) advanced 2% after the company reported headline earnings that missed expectations but also said it is developing a turnaround plan to improve its performance and deliver "enduring profitable growth" that it plans to share in the first week of May. Also rising after its quarterly report was another globally recognized brand, Coca-Cola (KO), whose shares gained 1% after its comparable earnings per share topped the consensus estimate. A third member of the Dow, Boeing (BA), slid over 2.5% after its earnings beat expectations but its revenue fell short of the consensus forecast... Visa (V) rose 5% and MasterCard (MA) advanced over 4% after China's State Council announced overnight that the country will regulate the market access for bankcard transaction clearing institutions, which analysts think might allow both companies to compete for the processing of domestic transactions in the country. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Angie's List (ANGI), which jumped 12% after the company reported it was profitable in the first quarter and announced an exclusive relationship that will see carpet manufacturer Shaw Industries give the company's members exclusive product offers. Also higher was ASML (ASML), which gained 11% after announcing that it has signed an agreement with one of its "major U.S. customers" to deliver a minimum of 15 ASML EUV, or Extreme Ultraviolet, lithography systems. Afterward, Summit Research said it thinks the most likely buyer is Intel (INTC), which the firm believes does not want to be left behind if TSMC (TSM) puts EUV to use in 10nm processing. Among the noteworthy losers was Natural Resource Partners (NRP), which dropped 19% after the company slashed its quarterly distribution by 75% to 9c per unit. Also lower following their earnings reports were ADTRAN (ADTN), which fell over 9%, Cree (CREE), which slid 9%, and Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), which declined 6%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 28.69, or 0.16%, to 17,978.28, the Nasdaq was up 6.66, or 0.13%, to 5,020.77, and the S&P 500 was up 5.24, or 0.25%, to 2,102.53.

16:53 EDTWFCOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Tuesday
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed for the day, beginning the session in positive territory helped by better than expected earnings reports from JPMorgan (JPM), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), and Wells Fargo (WFC). The early economic data was slightly below Wall Street expectations and became a headwind for the market. By the end of the first hour of trading the market had turned negative, and it spent the remainder of the day trading in mixed fashion. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail purchases for March advanced 0.9%, bouncing up from a 0.5% decline in February. However, economists had predicted a 1.1% growth after improvements on last month's weather. The producer price index grew 0.2% for March, in line with consensus estimates. Core PPI grew 0.2% versus expectations of 0.1% growth.

12:24 EDTWFCOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday despite better than expected headline earnings from JPMorgan (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC) and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ). The market began the session in positive territory on the heels of those solid earnings reports, but the averages were unable to hold their early gains as the retail sales figures released during the pre-market trading session missed expectations. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail purchases grew 0.9% in March, rebounding from a 0.5% decline in February. However, economists were expecting a more pronounced 1.1% advance in recovery from the prior month's weather driven weakness. The producer price index rose 0.2% in March, matching expectations. The core PPI, which excludes food and energy, grew 0.2% as well, versus expectations for it to have risen 0.1%. Business Inventories grew 0.3% in February, versus expectations for them to be up 0.2%. The International Monetary Fund, in its latest World Economic Outlook Report, trimmed its U.S. growth forecast to a 3.1% pace from its prior 3.6% view, but left its global forecast intact at a 3.5% rate. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of JPMorgan advanced 1.5% after its headline earnings per share topped expectations, even before accounting for 13c per share in aftertax legal expense that the bank identified as a "significant item." Conversely, fellow large bank Wells Fargo (WFC) slid 1.5% after its own report on first quarter results, despite the fact that its earnings and revenue both topped the consensus forecast... Shares of Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) were fractionally higher at midday after its first quarter earnings and revenue beat expectations. The multinational company, however, lowered its FY15 adjusted earnings outlook, citing further negative foreign currency movements... Nokia (NOK) and Alcatel-Lucent (ALU), in response to "recent media speculation," confirmed that they are in advanced discussions with respect to a potential full combination, which would take the form of a public exchange offer by Nokia for Alcatel. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was 58.com (WUBA), which jumped 25% after Financial Times reported the company has signed a memorandum of understanding to merge with peer Ganji.com to create one of the largest specialized online classified companies in China. Also higher was PartnerRe (PRE), which advanced nearly 9% to trade near $129.50 after Europe based investment company EXOR announced that it submitted a written proposal to acquire 100% of the common shares of the company for $130.00 per share in cash, valuing PartnerRe at $6.4B. EXOR said its all-cash proposal represents a 16% premium to the implied value per share of $112.53 for PartnerRe under the merger deal it has in place with AXIS Capital (AXS). Among the noteworthy losers was Arrowhead Research (ARWR), which tumbled over 6% after Jefferies downgraded the stock to Hold and cut its price target for shares to $9 from $30 after assuming coverage of the stock. The firm said that while ARC-520 offers the potential for a Hepatitis B virus functional cure, it prefers to wait for multi-dosing data. Also lower was Norfolk Southern (NSC), which fell nearly 6% and was downgraded to Hold from Buy at TD Securities after the railroad operator provided first quarter guidance that came in below analysts' consensus estimates. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 53.15, or 0.3%, to 18,030.19, the Nasdaq was down 16.19, or 0.32%, to 4,972.06, and the S&P 500 was up 2.20, or 0.11%, to 2,094.63.
