12:40 EDTBA, T, DOW, YHOO, GOOG, VRNG, EA, MKC, AOLOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday ahead of the last FOMC policy decision announcement of Ben Bernanke's tenure. Stocks began the session deep in negative territory thanks in part to foreign currency pressures in a number of emerging markets, including Turkey, Argentina and South Africa. There was also weakness in Dow components Boeing (BA) and AT&T (T) following their earnings reports. The market had recouped a fair part of its losses by noon as investors await the Fed's decision and the associated comments following its two day rate-setting meeting that concludes today. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the FOMC statement is scheduled to be released at 2:00 pm ET. In emerging markets, South Africa's central bank decided to increase interest rates for the first time in almost six years and the rand tumbled sharply after the country’s bid to halt the decline in the currency appeared to have backfired within minutes of the announcement. The reaction sparked a renewed sell-off in emerging market currencies, including the Turkish lira, which gave up all the gains it had registered after Turkey's central bank took aggressive action overnight to tighten its monetary policy. COMPANY NEWS: Dow member Boeing reported better than expected fourth quarter results, but the commercial airplane maker is the worst loser on the blue-chip index after it also issued guidance for fiscal 2014 that fell significantly short of expectations. Boeing guided to FY14 core EPS and revenue that were both well below consensus expectations. The company said it expects to make commercial deliveries of 715 to 725 planes in 2014 and expects operating cash flow of about $6.25B in 2014. Analysts at Wells Fargo said Boeing's cash flow outlook in particular could pressure shares, as it could imply no major ramp-up in share repurchases, and the stock was down over 6% near midday... Fellow Dow component AT&T was the second worst performer among its peers following its own quarterly report, issued last night after the close. Like Boeing, the telecom company reported results that beat expectations for the just-completed quarter, but the phone carrier's stock slid nearly 2% after it said it expects adjusted earnings per share to grow in the mid-single digits in the coming year, with revenue expected to be up only 2%-3%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Dow Chemical (DOW), which rose over 3.5% after reporting fourth quarter profits and revenue that both exceeded analysts' consensus estimate and increasing its quarterly dividend and its share repurchase program. Also higher was video game maker Electronic Arts (EA), which advanced more than 3% after raising its fiscal year earnings outlook and being upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA Merrill Lynch. Shares of Vringo (VRNG) rose almost 30% after the company received a 6.5% royalty rate from a judge in its suit against Google (GOOG) and AOL (AOL). Among the noteworthy losers was Yahoo (YHOO), which fell more than 7% after issuing a first quarter outlook that disappointed and being downgraded to Hold from Buy at Gabelli. Also lower after issuing a lower than expected outlook was spice maker McCormick (MKC), which slid almost 7%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 150.05, or 0.94%, to 15,778.51, the Nasdaq was down 27.28, or 0.67%, to 4,070.68, and the S&P 500 was down 12.36, or 0.69%, to 1,780.14.

Legal experts say that it is unlikely that a full Congress will revisit the issue of patent reform before the election in November, says the Wall Street Journal. Large technology companies like Google (GOOG) and Microsoft (MSFT) are pushing Congress to reform patent laws to curb litigation from patent-holding firms, added the Wall Street Journal. Publicly traded companies in the space include Acacia Research (ACTG), Tessera (TSRA), Rambus (RMBS) InterDigital (IDCC) and Vringo (VRNG). Reference Link
