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.

First delivery of the 777X is targeted for 2020.

16:22 EDTWFCOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
The Wall Street averages were mixed after three of the U.S.'s largest banks reported on their quarterly results and Germany slashed its economic forecasts for this year and next. Following the mostly solid earnings reports from the banks and Dow member Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) investors appeared to breathe a sigh of relief and sent the averages higher in early trading. With oil prices falling almost 5% and settling at a recent low, the averages pared their gains and struggled in positive ground. Another late day slide ended with the averages mixed, as the Nasdaq led and the Dow lagged. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the International Energy Agency said in its monthly oil market report that world oil demand growth would be weaker than previously expected. Afterward, WTI crude oil futures fell 4.6% at $81.84, marking their biggest percentage drop since late 2012 and the lowest settlement for the benchmark in over two years. The National Federation of Independent Business' small business optimism index came in at 95.3, versus the consensus expectation for a 95.8 reading. In Europe, Germany's government cut its forecasts for gross domestic product growth to 1.2% in 2014 and 1.3% next year from its prior view of 1.8% growth this year and 2% in 2015. COMPANY NEWS: The first of America's big banks issued their quarterly reports, with JPMorgan's (JPM) headline earnings per share coming in below analysts’ consensus estimate, Wells Fargo (WFC) reporting in-line earnings and improved credit quality and Citigroup (C) posting better than expected adjusted third quarter profit. Citi, which also announced plans to pull back from retail banking in eleven countries and said it will disband a legacy Banamex unit after an investigation uncovered illegal conduct, saw its stock fare the best among the three, rising $1.57, or 3.15%, to $51.47... Another Dow member, Johnson & Johnson, reported better than expected profits and revenues and raised its FY14 EPS outlook, but its stock slid $2.11, or 2.13%, to $97.01. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Domino's Pizza (DPZ), which rose $8.58, or 11.33%, to $84.30 after the pizza chain owner and franchisor reported better than expected third quarter earnings per share and revenue. Also higher was Skyworks (SWKS), which advanced $3.59, or 7.92%, to $48.91 after the supplier of chips to Apple (AAPL) raised its fourth quarter earnings per share outlook and revenue guidance. Among the noteworthy losers was Exactech (EXAC), which dropped $4.09, or 16.63%, to $20.50 after the company warned its Q3 income and revenue will likely miss its prior guidance. Also lower were shares of Gilead (GILD), which fell $4.26, or 4.2%, to $97.18 amid a number of developments. Competitor Johnson & Johnson said it would seek to make its own hepatitis C treatment accessible and "competitive," which some may have read as an indication of a potential price cut, and Ireland said it plans to close its "Irish Double" tax loophole, which currently benefits Gilead. INDEXES: The Dow slipped 5.88, or 0.04%, to 16,315.19, the Nasdaq rose 13.52, or 0.32%, to 4,227.17, and the S&P 500 added 2.96, or 0.16%, to 1,877.70.

12:20 EDTWFCOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after three of the nation's largest banks reported on their results in the most recent quarter of the year. The market began the session in positive territory but the move seemed tenuous and the averages were almost back in negative ground within a half hour of the opening bell. As the morning progressed and the bears were unable to gain control, the buyers emerged and pushed the Dow to a triple digit gain and the Nasdaq to an increase of nearly 1.5%. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the National Federation of Independent Business' small business optimism index came in at 95.3, versus the consensus expectation for a 95.8 reading. COMPANY NEWS: JPMorgan (JPM) swung to a third quarter profit, but its headline earnings per share fell below analysts’ consensus estimate. Of note, the company's press release on its results came out earlier than planned on Nasdaq's (NDAQ) Shareholder.com website, which the exchange operator attributed to an internal "human error." Wells Fargo (WFC) reported in-line earnings and stronger credit quality, but its stock slid 1.4% following the report. Citigroup (C) generated the most headlines, however, as it reported better than expected adjusted third quarter profit, announced plans to pull back from retail banking in eleven countries and said it will disband a legacy Banamex unit that provided personal security services after an investigation uncovered illegal conduct. Shares of Citi bucked the trend set by its two peers, rising 3% near noon... In addition to JPMorgan, Dow member Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) reported on its third quarter earnings. The drug and medical device giant reported better than expected profits and revenues and raised its FY14 EPS outlook, but the stock was fractionally lower near midday. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Energy Transfer Equity (ETE), which gained 8.5% after the stock was among the energy industry names upgraded this morning at RW Baird. Also higher was Skyworks (SWKS), which rose 11% after the company preannounced stronger than expected results that its CEO attributed to the "broad-based strength" of its business. Among the noteworthy losers was EnerNOC (ENOC), which dropped 11% after JPMorgan downgraded the stock to Neutral citing risk to the company's Demand Response revenue at PJM given the challenge to FERC Rule 745. Also lower was Tyco (TYC), which fell nearly 4% after Barclays downgraded the stock citing valuation and coupled the ratings change with an upgrade of Eaton (ETN). INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 133.38, or 0.82%, to 16,454.45, the Nasdaq was up 60.63, or 1.44%, to 4,274.29, and the S&P 500 was up 21.51, or 1.15%, to 1,896.25.

06:22 EDTBACFM launches next phase of testing for LEAP engine
CFM International's LEAP engine took the skies for the first time on October 6 on a modified 747 flying testbed at GE Aviation Flight Test Operations in Victorville, California, launching the next phase of testing for the advanced engine program. The engine behaved well and completed multiple aeromechnical test points at various altitudes during the nearly three-hour first flight. Over the next several weeks, the engine will complete a comprehensive test schedule that will gauge engine operability, stall margin, performance, and acoustics. The LEAP-1A/-1C variants are on track for engine certification in 2015. The total program, which encompasses all three LEAP engine variants, includes 28 ground and CFM flight test engines, along with a total of 32 flight test engines for Airbus (EADSY), Boeing (BA), and COMAC. Although all three LEAP engine variants will fly on the modified testbed, the configuration currently being tested is a fully integrated propulsion system. CFM is a joint venture between GE (GE) and France's Safran. Reference Link
