12:47 EDTAUY, ADTN, PEP, YHOO, AEM, SBUX, ZGNX, BAC, CSX, DPS, SODAOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday as the earnings season picks up steam. Stocks began the session sharply higher, with the market attempting to extend the rally that began on Monday. The move upward comes in spite of the dayís housing data coming in below expectations. This afternoon, investors will be watching the Fedís Beige Book report in hopes it provides evidence that the economy is strengthening. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts in March were up 2.8% from the prior month to a rate of 946K, versus expectations for an increase of 7%. Building permits were down 2.4% to a 990K rate, versus expectations for a decline of 0.4%. Industrial production rose 0.7% in March, which was ahead of the 0.5% forecast. The Fedís Beige Book report, which includes anecdotal reports on business conditions in the various Fed districts, is due out at 2:00 pm ET. In China, data showed its economy grew 7.4% in the first quarter from a year earlier, providing relief after recent signs that growth in the world's second largest economy has been slowing. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Bank of America (BAC) were down over 2% near midday after the company reported a first quarter loss of 5c per share, which was influenced by $6B in legal charges. The $6B in litigation expense, which was related to a previously announced settlement with the Federal Housing Finance Agency and added reserves for other legacy mortgage-related matters, hurt the banks earnings by about 40c per share... Yahoo (YHOO) rose more than 6% after reporting first quarter profit and sales last night that beat expectations. A great deal of attention was also paid to the 66% year-over-year increase in revenue reported by Alibaba, the Chinese group of e-commerce sites in which Yahoo has a 24% stake. This morning, Wells Fargo upgraded its rating on Yahoo to Outperform from Market Perform and raised its price target range for shares to $45-$47 from $38-$40, while Jefferies assumed coverage of Yahoo and also raised its rating on the stock. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was SodaStream (SODA), which surged 9% after an Israeli website said that the company was in talks to sell a 10% or greater stake to a big name company such as PepsiCo (PEP), Dr Pepper Snapple (DPS), or Starbucks (SBUX). Also higher was drugmaker Zogenix (ZGNX), which gained nearly 10% after confirming that a judge prevented a ban on sales of the company's Zohydro pain medication in Massachusetts. Among the noteworthy losers was Agnico Eagle Mines (AEM), which fell 7.5% after agreeing to jointly acquire Osisko Mining in partnership with Yamana Gold (AUY). Yamana shares were also down 3%. Also lower following their earnings reports were ADTRAN (ADTN), which fell nearly 6%, and CSX (CSX), which dropped about 3%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 124.14, or 0.76%, to 16,386.70, the Nasdaq was up 37.86, or 0.94%, to 4,072.02, and the S&P 500 was up 13.52, or 0.73%, to 1,856.50.

15:12 EDTBACU.S. Supreme Court decision gives homeowners leeway to rescind mortgage loans
In an unanimous ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Jesinoski vs. Countrywide Home Loans that homeowners are allowed to rescind home mortgages within the three years allotted under the Truth in Lending Act of 1968 by providing written notice to his/her lender. The court ruled that the borrowers were not required to file suit against the lender, which the respondents, Countrywide, claimed. The notice of rescission was sufficient to clear the homeowners of any obligation to the loan, provided they do it within the allotted time. Countrywide Home Loans is a subsidiary of Bank of America (BAC). Other publicly traded companies in the banking space include Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Reference Link

14:43 EDTCSXCSX technical comments ahead of results
The stock has been in a somewhat erratic downtrend since hitting its 52-week high in late November of last year. There is an active bearish pattern on the daily chart, a bearish flag, that has downside potential to the $30 area if the pattern remains active and completes. It should be noted that new information from earnings and outlook could negate the pattern. A move above the top of the flag at the $35 area would render it void. Patterns that fail, particularly during earnings, can experience moves in the opposite direction of the pattern equal to the expected move. In this case that would put the shares back at the 52-week high at $37.99. It should be noted that the $30 would need to be broken in order to change the long-term trend to negative.
