13:18 EDTBLKEarnings Preview: Apple reports after stock split, Beats purchase, iOS 8 launch
Apple (AAPL) is set to report third quarter earnings after the market close on Tuesday, July 22, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Apple, the world's most valuable company by market capitalization, is the manufacturer of the iPhone and iPad, among other desktop and mobile computing devices. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.23 on revenue of $37.99B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is $1.14-$1.37 on revenue of $36.58B-$40.31B. In a note to investors, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said Street analysts expect year-over-year iPhone sales growth of 14% to 35M-36M units, flat iPad sales of 14M-15M units, and a Q3 gross margin of 38%. Munster added that he expects Apple to guide Q4 revenues to $39B-$41B, which is in keeping with Street estimates for about $40.4B in Q4 revenue. LAST QUARTER: Apple reported second quarter EPS of $11.62 on revenue of $45.6B, which topped estimates for $10.18 and $43.5B, respectively. Apple reported iPhones sales of 43.7M units, iPad sales of 16.35M units and Mac sales of 4.14M. Apple said it sees Q3 revenue of $36B-$38B and a gross margin of 37%-38%. Along with its Q2 report, Apple announced a seven-for-one stock split. Apple also announced that its board raised its share repurchase authorization to $90B from the $60B level announced last year and an increase to the company’s quarterly dividend of approximately 8% to $3.29 per common share. NEWS: On May 28, Apple confirmed that it agreed to buy Beats Music, which operates a streaming music service, and Beats Electronics, which makes and sells electronic music products such as headphones and speakers, for $3B. As part of the acquisition, Beats co-founders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre will join Apple. Apple said at that time that it expects the transaction to close in Q4. On June 2, Apple announced OS X Yosemite, a new version of OS X redesigned and refined with a new look, new apps and new continuity features. Apple also unveiled iOS 8, a new version of its mobile operating system with new features for users and developers. Among the features were iCloud Photo Library, which allows user to enjoy photos and videos more easily across devices, new Messages features to easily share voice, video or photos, and a new Health app. Apple noted that the software development kit, or SDK, for iOS 8 was its "biggest developer release ever," with more than 4,000 new APIs. Apple and IBM announced last week that they would collaborate to provide mobile solutions for businesses. Under the deal, the companies will develop more than 100 enterprise solutions, including native apps, for Apple's iPhone and iPads. Moreover, IBM will sell iPhone and iPads to all of its business clients around the world, the companies noted. Also last week, Apple announced that Susan Wagner, founding partner and director of BlackRock (BLK), has been elected to Apple's board and that Bill Campbell, the board’s longest-serving member, is retiring after 17 years of service. Mac Rumors reported on July 10 that Apple was said to have ordered 68M iPhone 6 devices, citing a report in Taiwan's Business Weekly. That's double the amount of phones that the tech giant ordered prior to launching the iPhone 5 in 2012, the tech blog noted. The Wall Street Journal subsequently claimed that Apple has asked its suppliers to manufacture between 70M-80M of its two upcoming large-screen iPhones by the end of the year. ANALYST OPINION: On the day after Apple's last quarterly report, CLSA upgraded its rating on the shares to Buy from Outperform. On May 9, ISI Group downgraded Apple to Buy from Strong Buy, citing valuation. On June 2, following Apple's launch event for iOS 8, Piper Jaffray said it believed parts of Apple's new operating system point towards a possible iWatch later in the year and potential connected home products in the future. Piper said at that time that Apple remains on track to deliver multiple new product categories by the end of 2014. On June 17, Societe Generale upgraded Apple to Buy from Hold. On July 14, Barclays raised its rating on Apple to Overweight from Equal Weight, citing its channel checks that indicated near-term upside to consensus estimates. The firm also believes troubles at Samsung are creating an opportunity for Apple to regain market share and raised its price target for Apple shares to $110 from $95. The same day, Morgan Stanley said its survey results suggest June quarter iPhone demand upside. The firm raised its iPhone unit estimate to 36M from 34M and increased its EPS estimate to $1.24. Morgan Stanley increased it price target on Apple to $110 per share. Yesterday, JMP Securities upgraded Apple to Outperform from Market Perform, as the firm thinks the company is poised to report higher than expected sales and gross margins over the near-term and intermediate term. JMP set a price target of $135 on the stock. In his note previewing Apple's quarter, Munster wrote that Apple's guidance for its September-end quarter should tell investors if new iPhones are launching in September or later in the year. The Piper analyst expects a typical September launch, which could give the company 5 or 12 days of sales with the new phone depending on a standard Friday launch and its timing. Munster estimated the potential 7 day swing in the timing of the new phone could mean a 3M-4M unit and about $2B difference in the guidance for Q4, citing recent weekly run-rates for iPhone sales near launch quarters. PRICE ACTION: Each Apple shareholder of record at the close of business on June 2 received six additional shares for every share held on the record date and trading began on a split-adjusted basis on June 9. Shares of Apple advanced about 8% on the first day of trade following its Q2 report. Since the first day of trade following its last quarterly report, shares of Apple are up nearly 26%. In early afternoon trading ahead of its Q3 report tonight, Apple was up fractionally to just over $94 per share.

14:57 EDTMSEarnings Preview: Morgan Stanley to report amid optimism on Wealth Management
Morgan Stanley (MS) is scheduled to report second quarter earnings before the open on Thursday, July 17 with a conference call scheduled for 10:00 am ET. Morgan Stanley is a bank holding company. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for EPS of 55c on revenue of $8.2B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 52c-64c on revenue of $7.58B-$8.65B. Morgan Stanley (MS) reported stronger than expected first quarter results, as the company's revenue rose to $8.9B from $8.2B. The company's wealth management unit generated pre-tax income of $691M, versus $597M in the same period a year earlier. Morgan Stanley's investment management unit saw its pre-tax income from continuing operations rise to $263M from $187M, while the pre-tax income of its institutional Securities division rose $1.4B, up from $799M. Morgan Stanley's wealth management business will continue growing and the business' return on equity will eventually be well over 10%, said the company's CEO, Tom Gorman last month, according to The New York Times. But declines in the bank's fixed income revenues may make it harder for its securities businesses to exceed a 10% return on equity, and the firm has significantly reduced its trading operations, the newspaper quoted the CEO as saying. PEERS: On July 15, Goldman Sachs reported stronger than expected results, as the bank's investment banking unit saw its net revenue rise 15% year-over-year, while the net revenues generated by its Institutional Client Services unit dropped 11%. But Goldman's investing and lending unit saw its net revenues surge 46% year-over-year. Citigroup (C), on July 14, reported higher than expected Q2 EPS excluding certain items but lower than expected revenue. Revenue from Citi's Institutional Client Group dropped 11%, as revenue from fixed income and equity markets fell. STREET RESEARCH: On July 10, research firm Bernstein recommended Morgan Stanley's stock due to its exposure to high margin investment banking. Bernstein also liked Morgan Stanley because of its exposure to wealth management. PRICE ACTION: Morgan Stanley is up almost 9% over the last three months and it has surged over 23% in the last twelve months.

Under the terms of the settlement, AIG will receive $650M in cash plus its pro rata share of whatever amount is ultimately paid out to investors in connection with the Countrywide repurchase settlement. In addition, the parties have agreed, subject to the approval of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and certain other mortgage holders, to resolve the outstanding mortgage guaranty claims disputes in accordance with agreed-to claims processes and payment formulae.

12:21 EDTJPMOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday despite better than expected quarterly reports from two of the nation's largest financial institutions. Stock futures improved during the pre-market trading session, leading to a higher open for the broader market, following better than expected earnings reports from JP Morgan (JPM) and Goldman Sachs (GS). The earnings news also came alongside another huge M&A deal, as tobacco giants Reynolds American (RAI) and Lorillard (LO) confirmed plans to merge. However, the major averages weakened throughout the morning and fell into negative ground against the backdrop of Fed Chair Janet Yellen giving testimony on Capital Hill. In the Board of Governors' Monetary Policy Report, the central bank said valuation metrics in "some sectors" appear substantially stretched, "particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries." ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail sales increased 0.2% in June compared to the month prior, making for the weakest reading since January and missing the consensus forecast for an increase of 0.6%. The Empire State manufacturing index climbed to a four-year high of 25.6 in July, beating expectations for a reading of 16.5. Import prices rose 0.1% in June, with export prices slipping 0.4%. Business inventories grew 0.5% in May, which was just below the 0.6% consensus growth expectation. In Europe, Germany's ZEW survey missed expectations, as both its Current Situation and Expectations reading were lower than forecast. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of JPMorgan advanced nearly 4% after the bank reported a profit of $1.46 a share, which included a legal expense of 13c a share, beating analysts' consensus forecast of $1.29. The earnings report comes after CEO Jamie Dimon recently disclosed that he has throat cancer. During the company's conference call, Dimon said he was "feeling great," that doctors had found no evidence of cancer anywhere except in the location where it had originally been detected, and that his prognosis for recovery is "excellent"... Also in the large-cap bank sector, Goldman Sachs' headline earnings and revenue similarly beat expectations. The firm, which said it ranks first in worldwide announced and completed mergers and acquisitions for the year-to-date, advanced about 1% following its report... Along with JPMorgan in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) reported quarterly sales and profits that beat expectations and the healthcare conglomerate raised its fiscal year EPS view to $5.85-$5.92 from $5.75-$5.85. However, its increased outlook range still fell short of the $5.90 per share consensus forecast that analysts had prior to its report... Reynolds American confirmed news that has been speculated for many weeks, announcing that it will acquire peer Lorillard in a cash-and-stock transaction currently valued at $68.88 per Lorillard share, or a total of $27.4B, including the assumption of net debt. Shares of both fell afterward, with Lorillard down 8% to trade near $61.75 at midday and Reynolds slipping 5%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was small-cap pharma biotechnology research company Codexis (CDXS), which surged nearly 50% after announcing a collaboration and license agreement with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Among the noteworthy losers was Aaron's (AAN), which is engaged in the lease ownership and retail sale of a variety of consumer products. Its stock fell over 6% after the company lowered its second quarter outlook, citing lower than expected performance of its core business as the reason for the revision. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 33.45, or 0.2%, to 17,021.97, the Nasdaq was down 40.48, or 0.91%, to 4,399.94, and the S&P 500 was down 9.24, or 0.47%, to 1,967.86.
