07:47 EDTTWTRDeutsche Bank remains 'firmly' in the Twitter bull camp
Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Sandler says he remains "firmly in the bull camp" on Twitter (TWTR). A host of positive news is forthcoming, including the October 6 launch of Moments, better than expected revenue in the Q3 earnings report, and the filing of the CEO role along with a board re-shuffle. These events should be positive for investor sentiment, Ross tells investors in a research note. His channel checks continue to suggest "solid revenue trajectory" for Twitter in most markets, including U.S. direct sales, self-serve and international. Ross believes the "sentiment pendulum" for Twitter has "swung too far to the negative." He likens the current view on Twitter to when Facebook (FB) in 2012 and Google (GOOG) in the first half of 2015 went out of favor. Ross keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $50 price target. Twitter closed yesterday down $2.27 to $24.67.

16:23 EDTTWTROn The Fly: Top stock stories for Thursday
Stocks were lower for much of the first day of the new quarter, continuing the downtrend that has been prevalent for the last three months, but a late day rally lifted the averages back to a mixed close, with the Dow failing to join the Nasdaq and S&P in the green. It remains to be seen if tomorrow's nonfarm payrolls report will change the market's tone or how the data will influence the Federal Reserve, which meets again later this month to make another rate decision. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., Markit's manufacturing purchasing managers' index inched up to 53.1 in the final September reading, compared to the preliminary September figure of 53.0. ISM's manufacturing index fell to 50.2 in September, versus expectations for a reading of 50.6. Construction spending grew 0.7% in August, versus the consensus expectation for a rise of 0.5%. Initial jobless claims rose to 277,000 last week, versus expectations for 271,000 first-time claims. In Asia, Chinese markets were closed for holidays, but monthly manufacturing data was still released. The government's official manufacturing PMI ticked up to 49.8, beating expectations for a 49.6 reading. The final Caixin/Markit PMI, meanwhile, fell to a fresh six-and-a-half-year low of 47.2 in September, though that was slightly improved from an earlier flash estimate of 47. In Japan, the Bank of Japan's quarterly tankan survey of large manufacturers for the September quarter came in at positive 12, compared with expectations for a positive 13 reading. In Europe, Markit's final Eurozone manufacturing PMI for September came in at 52.0, down from August's final 52.3 reading but still in expansion territory. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of General Motors (GM) advanced 2.2% to $30.67 after the company reported its U.S. sales grew 12% in September compared to the same month of last year. Additionally, the auto giant hosted a global business update event, where it announced two new car- and ride-sharing projects and confirmed its plans to jointly develop a commercially viable fuel cell vehicle with Honda (HMC) in the 2020 timeframe. Ford (F), which said its U.S. sales rose 23% in September, gained 0.7% to $13.66 following its monthly sale report, while Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), whose U.S. sales increased 14% last month, rose 2.4% to $13.52 per share. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT), which rose $7.17, or 22.33%, to $39.28 after releasing additional Phase 2b data on its eteplirsen treatment for muscular dystrophy. Also higher was Tyler Technologies (TYL), which gained $15.17, or 10.17%, to $164.39 after agreeing to acquire New World Systems for $670M, prompting research firm Maxim to upgrade Tyler shares to Buy on the "highly" complementary transaction. Among the noteworthy losers was Dunkin' Brands (DNKN), which fell $6.00, or 12.24%, to $43.00 after projecting below-consensus quarterly same store sales and announcing plans to close 100 U.S. locations. Also lower was FXCM (FXCM), which dropped 69c, or 7.93%, to $8.01 after disclosing that it was the victim of a cybersecurity attack involving "a small number of unauthorized wire transfers from customer accounts." Twitter (TWTR) fell 8.4% to $24.67, seeing incremental declines throughout the day as investors waited for a rumored CEO announcement that never materialized. INDEXES: The Dow slipped 12.69, or 0.08%, to 16,272.01, the Nasdaq gained 6.92, or 0.15%, to 4,627.08, and the S&P 500 advanced 3.79, or 0.2%, to 1,923.82.

16:34 EDTTWTROn The Fly: Top stock stories for Wednesday
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply higher in the last day of the third quarter, but not by nearly enough to turn any of the major averages positive on a quarterly basis. The Dow ended the quarter with a loss of about 7.6%, the Nasdaq slid 7.4% and the S&P has lost 7% in the last three months. Investors hope the fourth quarter will be more profitable and the non-farm payrolls report for September and the kickoff of earnings season, which are both on the near-term horizon, will certainly have a say in whether that is the case. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., payroll processor ADP reported that 200,000 jobs were added this month, topping expectations for 190,000 job additions. The Chicago PMI business barometer index fell to 48.7 in September, missing expectations for a reading of 53.6. Additionally, the Senate passed a continuing resolution, officially funding the government through December 11. In China, important data, including manufacturing PMIs and Caixin readings, will be released overnight, but Chinese markets will be closed for "Golden Week" from October 1 to October 7. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Gap (GPS) and Ralph Lauren (RL) moved in opposite directions after an executive for one left to take over for an icon at the other. Stefan Larsson will step down as global president of Old Navy in order to become the new Chief Executive Officer of Ralph Lauren, replacing the man who founded the company that bears his name. At least three research firms downgraded Gap shares to sell or equivalent ratings and the stock fell 5.69% to $28.50 in the wake of the executive shake-up, while Ralph Lauren shares advanced 13.56% to $118.16... Re/code's Kara Swisher and Kurt Wagner reported, citing sources, that Twitter (TWTR) founder and interim CEO Jack Dorsey is set to be named permanent Chief Executive, possibly as soon as Thursday. Re/code noted that Dorsey will remain as CEO of Square, the payments company he also founded, and that the company is likely to reconfigure its board of directors, beginning with the departure of former CEO Dick Costolo. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Rentrak (RENT) and comScore (SCOR), which advanced a respective 24.61% and 11.29% after announcing a stock-for-stock merger agreement. Also higher was Western Digital (WDC), which gained $10.57, or 15.35%, to $79.44 after a subsidiary of China's Tsinghua Holdings agreed to take a 15% stake in the company. Additionally, Synaptics (SYNA) rose 27.31% to $82.46 after Bloomberg reported that the company rejected a $110 per share bid from a state-backed Chinese investment group. Among the noteworthy losers was Barracuda Networks (CUDA), which crashed $8.01, or 34.01%, to $15.54 after its quarterly results and future guidance both fell short of analyst expectations. Also lower was Mellanox (MLNX), which fell $2.00, or 5.03%, to $37.79 after agreeing to acquire EZchip (EZCH) but failing to reiterate its guidance on a subsequent conference call. Separately, Universal Truckload (UACL) plunged 18.91% to $15.57 after guiding its Q3 results significantly below consensus estimates, after which the stock saw downgrades at research firms BB&T and Citi. INDEXES: The Dow advanced 235.57, or 1.47%, to 16,284.70, the Nasdaq added 102.84, or 2.28%, to 4,620.17, and the S&P 500 rose 35.94, or 1.91%, to 1,920.03.

15:03 EDTTWTRTwitter founder Dorsey reported to be named permanent CEO
Shares of Twitter (TWTR) remain about 3% higher in afternoon trading after Re/code reported that founder and interim CEO Jack Dorsey is set to be named permanent Chief Executive. DORSEY: Jack Dorsey is expected to be named permanent CEO of Twitter as soon as Thursday, Re/code's Kara Swisher and Kurt Wagner reported this afternoon, citing sources. The company is also likely to reconfigure its board of directors, beginning with the departure of former CEO Dick Costolo, the report said. DUAL ROLES: Re/code noted that Dorsey will remain as CEO of Square, the payments company he founded in 2009. As recently as September 25, Fortune reported that Square plans to file for an initial public offering within weeks, and in a thinly-veiled reference to Dorsey's commitments to Square, the Twitter board of directors has previously commented that running the micro-blogging site requires a "full-time commitment." PRODUCT CHANGES: Re/code reported on Tuesday that Twitter is looking to break its trademark 140-character limit with new long-form content products. The news comes as Twitter struggles to expand its user base and appeal to advertisers, having launched multiple ad products in recent months while overhauling its front page to capture so-called logged out users. PRICE ACTION: Twitter shares are up about 3% to $26.33 in afternoon trading following Re/code's report.
