16:28 EDTBAMarket finishes week lower as earnings, GDP miss drag down stocks
Stocks ended the week lower as several major companies reported weaker than expected results or gave disappointing guidance and a number of U.S. economic data points came in below the consensus outlook. MACRO NEWS: The Federal Reserve reiterated that it would exercise patience in deciding when to raise interest rates. The central bank added that economic growth was expanding at a "solid" pace... U.S. economic data was mixed, as Q4 GDP growth, durable goods orders for December, and pending home sales came in below expectations, but weekly jobless claims and new home sales for December beat expectations... In Europe, the annual cost of living in the euro zone currency bloc fell 0.6% in January, versus analysts' forecast for a fall of 0.5%. However, the bloc's unemployment rate inched down to 11.4% in December from 11.5% in November. Analysts had expected the unemployment rate to remain unchanged. COMPANY NEWS: Apple's (AAPL) shares rose after the company reported record results, beating analysts' expectations. The company sold 74.5M iPhones last quarter, a figure that also beat the consensus outlook... Visa (V), Boeing (BA), Amazon.com (AMZN), Google (GOOG), and video game maker Electronic Arts (EA) were among the companies that rose following their earnings reports. Facebook (FB) reported stronger than expected results but its stock was little changed on the week... Microsoft (MSFT), Caterpillar (CAT), Qualcomm (QCOM), Alibaba (BABA), DuPont (DD), and 3M (MMM) fell after reporting their results... Yahoo (YHOO) announced that it plans to spin off its stake in Alibaba later this year in a tax-free transaction. The announcement led to speculation that Yahoo could become a takeover target... McDonald's (MCD) announced that its CEO, Don Thompson, would step down and be replaced by its current Chief Brand Officer, Steve Easterbrook. Its stock reacted favorably to the executive change... Qualcomm (QCOM) cut its fiscal 2015 guidance and announced that its Snapdragon 810 processor will not be in the upcoming design cycle of a large customer's flagship device. A number of analysts and media outlets said that Samsung was the company to which Qualcomm was referring. INDEXES: For the week, the Dow is down 2.83% to 17,164.95, the Nasdaq is down 2.56% to 4,635.24, and the S&P is down 2.77% to 1,994.99.
