12:21 EDTFBCable ad upfront volumes may drop 4% or more, WSJ says
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. Google (GOOG) has a large presence in online video with YouTube and Facebook (FB) is taking steps to grow in the area. Reference Link

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.

16:22 EDTWFCOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher today, but were still lower for the week, as concerns in Europe have come back to the forefront of investors' minds. Today's modest bounce was not enough to make up for the declines seen in three of the other four sessions earlier in the week. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the June federal budget statement showed a surplus of $70.5B for the month, compared to analysts' forecast for a $79B surplus. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Wells Fargo (WFC) slipped 32c, or 0.62%, to $51.49 after the largest mortgage lender in the U.S. posted earnings of $1.01 a share that matched analysts' consensus forecast. Wells did note that its credit performance continued to improve in Q2 and CEO John Stumpf said he is "optimistic about the future" for the bank... Lorillard (LO) advanced $2.92, or 4.63%, to $66.01, while Reynolds American fell 51c, or 0.82%, to $61.75, after the two cigarette makers confirmed that they are holding talks about a possible merger, as has been speculated by various media reports in recent weeks... In another update to an ongoing M&A story, Japan's Nikkei reported that Sprint's (S) corporate parent, Softbank (SFTBF), has reached an agreement to acquire T-Mobile (TMUS) from Deutsche Telecom (DTEGY), clearing the way for the long-speculated merger between the third and fourth largest wireless carriers in the U.S. Following the new story, Sprint shares finished the day up 30c, or 3.64%, to $8.55, while T-Mobile rose 62c, or 1.89%, to $33.50. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Ruckus Wireless (RKUS), which advanced 87c, or 7.9%, to $11.88 after the FCC announced that it would allocate new funds to subsidize the launch of WiFi networks in schools and libraries. Also higher was Amazon.com (AMZN), which climbed $18.28, or 5.57%, to $346.20 after consulting firm ChannelAdvisor (ECOM) reported that the company's same-store sales growth had accelerated significantly in June compared with May. Among the noteworthy losers was Rent-A-Center (RCII), which dropped $3.18, or 10.94%, to $25.88 after the company warned that its revenue and earnings for Q2 will not meet expectations. Also lower were shares of industrial and construction supply retailer Fastenal (FAST), which fell $2.00, or 4.16%, to $46.15 after its Q2 revenue missed analysts' consensus view and the company reported plans to close 45 stores. INDEXES: The Dow was up 28.74, or 0.17%, to 16,943.81, the Nasdaq was up 19.29, or 0.44%, to 4,415.49, and the S&P 500 was up 2.83, or 0.14%, to 1,967.51.

“Our strong results in the second quarter reflected the benefit of our diversified business model and our long-term focus on meeting the financial needs of our customers,” said Chairman and CEO John Stumpf. “By continuing to serve customers we grew loans, increased deposits and deepened our relationships. Our results also reflected strong credit quality driven by an improved economy, especially the housing market, and our continued risk discipline. We are committed to both maintaining strong capital levels and returning more capital to our shareholders. In the second quarter we increased our common stock dividend 17 percent and repurchased 39.4 million shares. We remain dedicated to building long-term shareholder value, and I am optimistic about the future as we continue to focus on meeting the needs of our consumer, small business and commercial customers.” CFO John Shrewsberry said, “The primary drivers of Wells Fargo’s business remained strong in the second quarter, with broad-based loan growth, increased deposit balances, and improved credit quality. Revenue increased linked quarter as the Company grew both net interest income and noninterest income, a reflection of Wells Fargo’s diversified business model. These solid fundamental business results led to an increase in pre-tax income linked quarter. Net income was down as the Company’s effective tax rate was lower in the first quarter due to a $423 million discrete tax benefit.”

13:24 EDTWFCEarnings Preview: Analysts divided on Wells Fargo ahead of results
Wells Fargo (WFC) is scheduled to report second quarter earnings before the open on Friday, July 11 with a conference call scheduled for 10:00 am ET. Wells Fargo is a bank holding company. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for EPS of $1.01 on revenue of $20.82B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 93c-$1.06 on revenue of $20.34B-$22.74B. LAST QUARTER: Wells reported stronger than expected first quarter results, as its net chargeooffs tumbled $594M year-over-year and its nonperforming assets sank 18% year-over-year. However, the bank’s revenue did decline to $20.6B, from $21.3B during the same period a year earlier. On May 20, Wells said that it was targeting a net payout ratio of 55%-75%. The bank defined net payout as dividend and share repurchases less issuances. The bank added that it would target return on equity of 12%-15%. Wells said it was "well-positioned for rising rates," and indicated that its competition was intensifying. On June 6, The New York Times reported that Wall Street's largest banks this year significantly cut the number of bonds they held, leaving them with a negative position in bonds in March, as they expected bond prices to drop, Since bond prices rose, a number of the large banks have said that their earnings would be hurt by this trade, the newspaper stated. STREET RESEARCH: In a note to investors on July 7, FBR Capital named Wells as one of its favorite names in the banking space. Wells is one of the banks that’s benefiting from above average loan growth while taking market share from its peers, according to the firm. Wells also has above-average growth prospects, high-quality earnings streams, and solid underlying fundamentals, FBR Capital stated. Conversely, Barron’s warned on June 30 that Wells’ stock looked pricey at $52.46. According to Barron’s, Macquarie predicted that the bank’s EPS growth was set to slow, while the stock rose more than it should have in the first half of 2014. Macquarie, which downgraded Wells to Underperform from Neutral on June 30, said that the bank’s core earnings had declined in the past four quarters, added Barron’s. Banks’ results remain challenging, as net interest income, fee revenues and core pre-provision earnings are all essentially unchanged since 2011, Oppenheimer wrote in a note to investors on July 7. Meanwhile, chargeoffs have likely hit bottom, the firm stated. But on a positive note, consumer lending is finally increasing and banks’ current expansion cycle likely has a few years to go, Oppenheimer believes. However, the firm kept a Perform rating on Wells Fargo. PRICE ACTION: Wells Fargo’s stock is up more than 14% this year and is not far from its 52-week high of $53.08.

12:30 EDTAAOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were moderately higher at midday, helped in part by better than expected earnings from Alcoa (AA), solid monthly numbers from the airlines sector, and a bounce from the two day losing streak that had seen the S&P lose 1% and the Nasdaq pullback by more than 2%. The market has been unable to gather any upside momentum and has moved in a narrow range throughout the morning, as investors await the release of the Fed’s FOMC minutes. ECONOMIC EVENTS: The minutes from the Federal Open Market Committee meeting held June 17-18 are scheduled to be released at 2:00 pm ET. In China, the producer-price index declined 1.1% from a year earlier, compared with a consensus forecast for a 1% drop. China's consumer-price index rose 2.3%, below projections for a 2.4% gain. COMPANY NEWS: Alcoa swung to a second-quarter profit of 18c a share on an adjusted basis, beating the consensus estimate of 7c a share, as its revenue also topped expectations. The aluminum producer, whose report is widely considered to mark the start of an earnings season, said its transformation is in "high gear" and that its cost position continues to improve. The stock rose 5% near midday following its report. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was AeroVironment (AVAV), which develops a portfolio of products and services for unmanned aircraft and efficient energy systems. The stock rallied 14% after the company reported better than expected fourth quarter results. Also higher was Reynolds American (RAI), which rose more than 2.5% after the U.K.'s Daily Mail reported that British American Tobacco (BTI), which currently holds a 42% stake in Reynolds, is speculated to be "on the verge" of buying out the remainder of its U.S. peer that it does not already own. Among the noteworthy losers was IT infrastructure technology provider Gigamon (GIMO), which was downgraded by at least five firms and plunged 32% after the company lowered its Q2 revenue guidance, citing challenges closing deals. Also lower following its earnings reports was specialty storage and organizational product retailer The Container Store (TCS), which fell 10%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 36.86, or 0.22%, to 16,943.48, the Nasdaq was up 18.93, or 0.43%, to 4,410.39, and the S&P 500 was up 4.59, or 0.23%, to 1,968.30.
