16:49 EDTAMZNS&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.

12:51 EDTAMZNOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday and on track to end a week marked by a torrent of earnings reports on a definite down note. Some high-profile disappointments weighed on the major averages, as Visa (V) and Amazon.com (AMZN) both fell significantly after their quarterly reports last night, dragging on the Dow and Nasdaq, respectively. The domestic economic calendar’s sole release of consequence, the durable goods orders report, came out before the open and was better than expected, but that did little to brighten the market's negative tone. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., durable goods orders rebounded 0.7% in June after a 1.0% decline in the prior month, beating expectations for June increase of 0.5%. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Amazon.com fell 10% after the e-commerce giant reported in-line second quarter revenue but a much higher than expected loss. A number of analysts responded to the news by downgrading the stock, while several others cut their price targets on the shares... Visa reported Q3 earnings per share and revenue that topped consensus forecasts, but its fiscal year EPS growth outlook was trimmed its fiscal year revenue growth view to be in the 9-10% range from its prior forecast for low double-digit constant revenue growth in the 10-11% range. Shares of the Dow Jones Industrial Average component slid 4% following the report and guidance. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were Datalink (DTLK), which jumped 17%, Mellanox (MLNX), which rose 13%, and VeriSign (VRSN), which gained 11%. Among the noteworthy losers was WellCare (WCG), which plunged 20% after the managed care company pre-announced significantly weaker than expected results. Also lower following their earnings reports were Swift Transport (SWFT), which fell nearly 15%, and Pandora (P), which dropped about 13%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 131.61, or 0.77%, to 16,952.19, the Nasdaq was down 24.45, or 0.55%, to 4,447.66, and the S&P 500 was down 9.04, or 0.45%, to 1,978.94.
11:03 EDTCCitigroup unit LavaFlow to pay $5M in settlement with SEC
The Securities and Exchange Commission has charged a Citigroup business unit operating an alternative trading system with failing to protect the confidential trading data of its subscribers. New York-based LavaFlow Inc. has agreed to pay $5M to settle the SEC’s charges, including a $2.85M penalty that is the agency’s largest to date against an ATS. According to the SEC’s order instituting a settled administrative proceeding, LavaFlow allowed an affiliate operating a technology application known as a smart order router to access and use confidential information related to the non-displayed orders of LavaFlow’s ECN’s subscribers. While LavaFlow only allowed the affiliate to use the confidential trading data for order router customers who also were ECN subscribers, the firm did not obtain consent from its subscribers to use their confidential information in this way, nor did LavaFlow disclose the use in its regulatory filings with the SEC. In addition to the Regulation ATS violations, the SEC’s order finds that LavaFlow aided and abetted a violation by the same affiliate that operated the smart order router, Lava Trading Inc., which continued to provide broker-dealer services for several months after it deregistered in August 2008.

Amazon.com (AMZN) is expected to report second quarter earnings after the market close on Thursday, July 24 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Amazon.com is an online retail company that also provides consumer electronics and cloud computing services. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of (15c) on revenue of $19.34B. The consensus range is (51c)-7c for EPS, and $19.0B-$19.65B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Amazon.com reported first quarter EPS of 23c against estimates of 23c, on revenue of $19.74B against estimates of $19.43B. The company gave Q2 revenue guidance of $18.1B-$19.8B and Q1 operating income guidance of ($455M)-($55M). In its earnings conference call, Amazon said its AWS usage and third party growth continues to be strong. NEWS: Amazon announced the launches of a Fire Phone with a 4.7-inch display with Gorilla Glass 3. It also announced an unlimited ad-free music streaming service called Prime Music and a Kindle Unlimited subscription service. Amazon expanded same-day shipping service by allowing later ordering times as well as adding Sunday delivery to 15 cities in addition to Los Angeles and New York. The company also continued in a public battle with publisher Hachette as it refused orders and buying less inventory. ChannelAdvisor reported Amazon SSS grew 27% in April, 28.1% in May and 34.4% in June. STREET RESEARCH: Piper Jaffray said Amazon's music service is irrelevant due to its relatively low amount of songs, but will become relevant over time. It also said that the Amazon smartphone is a good start, although it lacks an app ecosystem. BMO Capital said the company's device could help drive additional wallet share and may spur additional consumers to buy Prime memberships. JMP Securities adds that the phone may take some time for it to gain meaningful share. Ahead of earnings, the company was downgraded at Citigroup, citing Amazon's "aggressive investment" in web services could pressure earnings over the next few quarters. PRICE ACTION: Amazon.com shares have risen more than $23, or 6.9%, over the last three months. In Thursday midday trading ahead of the Q2 report, Amazon.com shares are up fractionally.

12:41 EDTINTCIntel advances after analyst predicts mobile unit rebound coming
Shares of Intel (INTC) are advancing in a down market after Wells Fargo wrote that the company's mobile chip business could rebound significantly in coming quarters. WHAT'S NEW: Intel's mobile chip business could boost the company's growth and even enable it to beat earnings expectations, Wells Fargo wrote in a note to investors today. The chip maker's shipments of 4G modems should start rising significantly in the third quarter or fourth quarter of this year, the firm stated. The company has probably won some deals to provide LTE modems for smartphones and Samsung is likely one of the chip maker's initial customers, the firm wrote. Broadcom's (BRCM) decision to exit the baseband market probably improved Intel's position in the 4G market, Wells Fargo contended. Meanwhile, Intel said that by this year's holiday season, it should be ready to launch chips for mobile devices that are smaller than those of a key competitor, TSMC (TSM), Wells noted. Sales generated by Intel's mobile and communications unit may have bottomed last quarter or could do so during the current quarter, the firm believes. The unit's operating losses are likely to drop throughout this year, before falling sharply in the quarter ended March 2015, Wells estimated. The unit may approach break even by the end of 2015, the firm added. Wells kept an Outperform rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On July 15, Intel reported stronger than expected results for its quarter ended in June. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Intel rose 43c, or 1.3%, to $34.13.

08:07 EDTCLFCliffs Natural urges vote in favor of seven Cliffs nominees
Cliffs Natural Resources issued an open letter to shareholders in connection with its upcoming 2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, stating in part: "Cliffs' July 29 Annual Meeting of Shareholders is right around the corner and you have an important and strategic choice to make regarding the composition of the Cliffs Board and the future direction of your company. Last week, Cliffs announced that we reduced our slate from nine to seven candidates in order to provide shareholders with a clear path to vote consistently with the recommendations of Institutional Shareholder Services and Glass Lewis & Co without inadvertently providing Casablanca Capital with a majority of the Board of Directors as a result of Cliffs' cumulative voting provision... Surrendering a majority of the Board will enable Casablanca to enact what we believe is a value-destructive plan, including a "fire sale" of Cliffs' assets at the bottom of the commodity cycle."

08:15 EDTCLFCliffs Natural announces revised proxy with ISS, Glass Lewis recommendations
Cliffs Natural announced that it has revised its WHITE proxy card to provide shareholders with a clear path to vote consistently with the recommendations of Institutional Shareholder Services, or ISS, and Glass Lewis without inadvertently providing Casablanca Capital with a majority of the board as a result of Cliffs' cumulative voting provision. While both proxy solicitation firms have recommended shareholders support four Casablanca nominees, they have recommended that Cliffs' nominees should remain as the majority of Cliffs' board. As such, Cliffs' board has reduced its slate of directors to be elected at the 2014 Annual Meeting from nine to seven candidates, with Barry J. Eldridge and Stephen M. Johnson no longer standing for re-election. With this change, shareholders can vote the company's WHITE proxy card in order to elect four of Casablanca's nominees and seven of Cliffs' nominees, which is in line with both ISS' and Glass Lewis' recommendations. In addition, Cliffs' board is offering to include Lourenco Goncalves, Joseph Rutkowski, Gabriel Stoliar, and Douglas Taylor on Cliffs' WHITE proxy card, subject to such individuals providing Cliffs with their consent to include their names on Cliffs' proxy card.
