16:49 EDTFB, BAS&P ends week little changed amid earnings deluge
The S&P 500 finished little changed this week as mixed U.S. economic data and continued geopolitical uncertainty offset strong earnings from a number of major companies and upbeat overseas economic data. MACRO NEWS: U.S. economic data was mixed, as fewer than expected jobless claims were reported and durable goods orders for June were slightly higher than expected, but new home sales for June and a preliminary purchasing managers' index for July came in below expectations... Investors received some positive economic news from overseas, as HSBC's preliminary China purchasing managers' index for July reached an 18-month high. Meanwhile, a preliminary PMI for the euro zone for July came in at 54, versus 52.8 in June... Ongoing conflicts between Israel and Hamas and Russia and Ukraine kept investors on edge, with Friday reports indicating that no truce accord had been reached in Israel and that Russia was building up its troop presence along the Ukrainian border. COMPANY NEWS: Among the notable companies whose stocks rose after they reported quarterly results were Facebook (FB), Apple (AAPL), Allergan (AGN) and Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG). Notable companies whose stocks sold off following their results included Netflix (NFLX), Harley-Davidson (HOG), General Motors (GM), Boeing (BA), McDonald's (MCD) and Pandora (P)... McDonald's was also hit this week by revelations that its restaurants in China had sold expired meat that was allegedly intentionally supplied by a China-based company. Yum! Brands (YUM) and a provider of products to Starbucks (SBUX) are also believed to have bought and sold expired meat from the supplier... In M&A news, Bloomberg reported that real estate website operator Zillow (Z) held talks about buying its rival, Trulia (TRLA). Both stocks surged. Shares of SodaStream (SODA) also rallied after Bloomberg reported that the company is in talks about selling itself to an investment firm that would take the beverage system maker private... On Monday, hedge fund manager Bill Ackman promised on CNBC that his presentation about Herbalife (HLF) would show why the company "is going to collapse." But the shares actually surged higher during and immediately after Ackman's presentation. Ackman has a large short position in the stock and notably alleged it is a pyramid scheme... BlackBerry's (BBRY) CEO told the Financial Times that his company was in early talks about partnering with companies to target the enterprise markets, in order to counter a recently announced partnership between Apple and IBM (IBM). INDEXES: For the week, the Dow fell 0.83% to 16,960.57, the Nasdaq rose 0.4% to 4,449.56, and the S&P was flat at 1,978.34.

12:32 EDTFBOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly higher at midday amid another wave of earnings reports, headlined by Facebook (FB), Caterpillar (CAT), General Motors (GM) and Ford (F). The market has moved in a narrow range as investors try to digest the bevy of earnings reports that were released last night and this morning. The market has also had to battle a negative economic report on new home sales, which not only disappointed in June but saw the prior month revised lower as well. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims dropped 19K to 284K in the week ended July 19. While the BLS said there were no special factors in the claims data, they also reminded that the numbers can be very volatile at this time of year due in part to auto shutdowns. Markit's flash U.S. PMI for July dipped 1 point to 56.3 from 57.3 in June. June new home sales fell 8.1% to a 406K rate, which was worse than expected, and May's data was downwardly revised. In China, HSBC's flash manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index rose to 52 in July from 50.7 a month earlier. COMPANY NEWS: Facebook achieved a new all-time high and its share price eclipsed $76, a level that was more than double the price of its initial public offering, after its revenue and profits beat expectations. After the report a number of Wall Street analysts hiked their price targets on the stock, with Jefferies and Topeka both raising their targets on the social network operator's stock to $100... Shares of General Motors declined more than 3% after its earnings per share, excluding special items, missed consensus expectations and its revenue also fell short of the analysts' forecast. The company took a $400M special charge related to its ignition switch compensation program, but cautioned that there is no cap on this program and it is possible the total cost could increase by another $200M. Also, GM recorded a non-cash pre-tax special charge of about $900M in the second quarter for the estimated costs of future possible recalls for "up to the next 10 years on 30M GM vehicles on the road today." In contrast, Ford reported earnings per share, excluding special items, and revenue that beat expectations and its stock rose 1%... Caterpillar dropped over 3% after its quarterly revenue missed expectations and it narrowed its outlook for full-year revenue. However, the heavy machine maker's earnings did beat the consensus forecast and it raised it fiscal year profit outlook. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Sodastream (SODA), which jumped nearly 20% after Bloomberg said the home beverage system maker is in talks with an investment firm on deal that would make it a private company and value it at about $828M, or $40 per share. Also higher following their earnings reports were Under Armour (UA), which rose 15%, and Dr. Pepper Snapple (DPS), which gained 5%. Among the noteworthy losers following their earnings reports were homebuilder DR Horton (DHI), which fell 10%, online travel company TripAdvisor (TRIP), which dropped 9%, and semiconductor chip maker Qualcomm (QCOM), which slid 6%. Also lower was review service operator Angie's List (ANGI), which plunged 19% after reporting second quarter losses per share and revenue that were worse than expected, prompting a number of downgrades of its stock by Wall Street analysts. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 8.25, or 0.05%, to 17,094.88, the Nasdaq was up 6.10, or 0.14%, to 4,479.80, and the S&P 500 was up 2.98, or 0.15%, to 1,989.99.

06:50 EDTBABoeing enters into agreement, engaged in talks with Iran regarding parts sales
Boeing said in a filing that during Q2 it entered into an agreement and engaged in related discussions with Iran Air pursuant to a license from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control. The agreement sets forth general terms and conditions with respect to the potential sale of certain goods and services related to the safety of flight, including airplane parts, manuals, drawings, service bulletins, and navigation charts and data. Boeing also engaged in discussions pursuant to the OFAC license with Iran Air Tours, a subsidiary of Iran Air, with respect to the sale of similar goods and services. Boeing applied for the OFAC license consistent with guidance from the U.S. Government in connection with ongoing negotiations between the “P5+1” nations and Iran related to, among other things, the safety of Iran’s civil aviation industry. Boeing generated no gross revenues or net profits during the second quarter in connection with these activities.

17:01 EDTBAOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session mixed and remained that way throughout the trading day, with the Nasdaq the leader and the Dow the laggard. The tech-heavy Nasdaq was helped by a post-earnings rise in shares of Apple (AAPL), while the blue-chip index was weighed down by Boeing's (BA) under-performance following its own quarter report. There was little movement in the averages during the day as they remained in a narrow range, but the increase in the S&P 500 did manage to push it to a new all-time closing high. After the bell, investors will receive the next wave of earnings with AT&T (T), Facebook (FB) and Qualcomm (QCOM) scheduled to report. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., MBA's mortgage market index rose 2.4%, with a 0.3% rise in the purchase index and a 4.1% gain in the refinance index for the week ended July 18. Also, the International Monetary Fund predicted that U.S. economic growth for 2014 as a whole will be a disappointing 1.7%. However, barring unforeseen shocks, 2015 growth should accelerate to the fastest annual pace since 2005, propelled by strong consumption growth, a declining fiscal drag, a pickup in residential investment, and easy financial conditions, said the IMF. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple advanced $2.47, or 2.61%, to $97.19 after reporting third quarter earnings that beat expectations. However, the iPhone maker's revenue came in a bit short of analyst expectations for its just completed quarter and its guidance for sales in the new quarter was also below expectations. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said Apple's September quarter guidance suggests an iPhone 6 launch on September 26, versus the firm's prior expectation for a September 19 launch. Piper views Apple's Q3 results as removing the last major variable ahead of the iPhone and iWatch launches later this year and reiterates an Overweight rating on the stock. Another research firm, Janney Capital, said Apple did not address rumored new products, like the iPhone 6 and iWatch, on its earnings call, but did indicate that its wider than normal revenue guidance range was due to "many moving pieces," suggesting one or two new products may be introduced, but late in the quarter... Dow component Boeing sank $3.03, or 2.34%, to $126.71 despite reporting "core" EPS that beat expectations and raising its fiscal year earnings outlook to a range above the Wall Street consensus. Boeing's revenue missed expectations, however, and it also reported its total company backlog of $440B was unchanged from the beginning of the quarter... Another Dow member, McDonald's (MCD), fell 92c, or 0.96%, to $95.35 after the company reported weaker than expected second quarter results yesterday and its stock was downgraded by at least five research firms. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Puma Biotechnology (PBYI), whose stock surged $174.40, or 295.44%, to $233.43 after the company reported positive data for its breast cancer drug and an analyst at Citigroup said that the company would probably become a takeover target. Also higher was Intuitive Surgical (ISRG), which rose $69.47, or 17.71%, to $461.63 and was upgraded at both Raymond James and Stifel after the company reported better than expected Q2 results. Among the noteworthy losers was Xilinx (XLNX), which tumbled $6.89, or 14.31%, to $41.26 after the company reported lower than expected first quarter revenue and forecast that its sales could drop as much as 4% in Q2 versus Q1. After the report, analysts at William Blair, Bank of America Merrill Lynch and BMO Capital all downgraded the stock. Also lower were shares of Juniper Networks (JNPR), which fell $2.39, or 9.63%, to $22.43 and was also downgraded at Bank of America Merrill Lynch after its Q3 guidance missed expectations. INDEXES: The Dow slid 26.91, or 0.16%, to 17,086.63, the Nasdaq rose 17.68, or 0.4%, to 4,473.70, and the S&P 500 gained 3.48, or 0.18%, to 1,987.01.

12:43 EDTFBFacebook technical comments ahead of results
The shares have outperformed in the last three months, trading up over 14% in that period to date. The trading range has been wide, with the $55 area at the low and $69 at the high as of yesterday's close. At the current price of $70.99 the stock is trading close to its life high at $72.59. On better news or guidance, that level would be the initial high to test. On a breakout given that there is no resistance overhead, a move to $75 and then to $80 would be possible. A caution for traders is that if news disappoints there is a very small short-base in the name. That could make a downside reaction stronger in the absence of buy-to-cover pressure. Similarly there is little in the way of demand for a short-squeeze either on good news. If news does disappoint a key level on the downside is at $64. This has been both resistance and support over the last three months. The $62 level has had a similar role as big support. It would likely take a major disappointment to break it. If that were to happen, the $60 level would be a next potential objective.

Two of the U.S.'s biggest marketers, Procter & Gamble (PG) and General Motors (GM), have pulled back on their TV network advertising commitments in advance of the "upfront" selling season for cable networks, said The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter. The overall volume of ad dollars committed to cable networks during the upfront, which is still under way, could be down 4% or more from last year, people familiar with the situation said. Notable owners of cable television stations include 21st Century Fox (FOXA), Time Warner (TWX), Disney (DIS), CBS (CBS), Comcast (CMCSA), Discovery (DISCA), Viacom (VIAB), and AMC Networks (AMCX). The report added that cutbacks partly reflect a shift of tv ad budgets to digital media, including online video.

10:56 EDTFBFed calls small cap social media, biotech valuations 'stretched'
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve in its Monetary Policy Report dated today said valuation metrics in "some sectors" appear substantially stretched, "particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year." A later part in the document reads, "Equity valuations of smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms appear to be stretched, with ratios of prices to forward earnings remaining high relative to historical norms." The specific targeting of sectors by the Fed seems to be having an impact on stocks in the social media and biotech spaces. Shares of Yelp (YELP) are down over 5% to $67.51, while Twitter (TWTR) and Facebook (FB) are each down 2%. Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) are leading the biotech space lower with pullbacks of greater than 1%.

10:33 EDTFBFacebook, Twitter slip following cautious valuation comments from Fed
Shares of a number of companies in the social media and biotech industries moved lower following the circulation of cautious comments about their stock valuations that were included in the Federal Reserve's latest Monetary Policy Report. WHAT'S NEW: In the report, presented by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve and signed on behalf of the governors by Chair Janet Yellen, the central bank wrote that some broad equity price indexes have increased to all-time highs in nominal terms since the end of 2013, but that valuation measures for the overall market in early July were "generally at levels not far above their historical averages." However, the Fed's report also cautioned that valuation metrics in some sectors do appear substantially "stretched," particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year. As support for its assessment, the Fed noted that ratios of prices to forward earnings for "smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms" remain "high relative to historical norms." PRICE ACTION: Following the circulation of the comments in the Fed report, shares of Facebook (FB) are down 88c, or 1.3%, to $67.02, Twitter (TWTR) is down 24c, or 0.6%, to $38.07 and LinkedIn (LNKD), is down 21c, or 0.1%, to $159.57. Shares of some biotechnology companies including Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) also ticked lower following the circulation of the comments from the Fed's report.
