13:30 EDTWYNNWynn Resorts rallies with peers, levels to watch
The stock was last at $128.90, just off the high of the day at $129.12. At current price, next resistance is at $130.96. Given the sharp decline in price over the last year, there is a great deal of technical damage to repair. It would take a move above the 50-day moving average, last at $144.87, to turn the shares back to bullish. Support is at $126.63.

08:14 EDTERICWorst case scenario unlikely for Ericsson in Apple lawsuit, says Bernstein
Noting that Apple (AAPL) and Ericsson (ERIC) are involved in patent litigation in which Apple has asked the court to limit Apple's royalty payments to Ericsson to the smallest saleable component containing Ericsson's technology, Bernstein says that Ericsson's IP revenue would be reduced to almost nothing if the court grants Apple's request. However, the firm does not believe that Apple's request has a good legal rationale, and it thinks that the court is "extremely unlikely" to grant it. As a result, the firm is "relaxed" about Ericsson's outlook. It keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.

13:59 EDTVZT-Mobile announces 'Un-contract,' 'Carrier Freedom' initiatives
Today, during an event held to announce Un-carrier 9.0 − Un-carrier for Business − T-Mobile (TMUS) unveiled two new major Un-carrier initiatives for consumers. First, with T-Mobile’s new "Un-contract," customers will now have more certainty in their wireless pricing than ever before. Consumers and businesses with the Simple Choice rate plan will find that rates won’t go up as long as they’re a T-Mobile customer and keep their plan − and even customers with unlimited 4G LTE will lock in their rates for a minimum of two years. The Un-carrier also launched "Carrier Freedom," a new move where T-Mobile will now cover all outstanding phone and tablet payments up to $650 per line when customers from AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ) or Sprint (S) switch to T-Mobile.

Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday ahead of the conclusion of the Federal Reserve's latest rate setting meeting and the central bank's accompanying announcements. The averages began the session in negative territory and have been range-bound throughout the morning. The Dow was down triple digits once again, making 8 consecutive days that the blue chip index has seen a triple digit move. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the DOE petroleum inventory reports showed a 9.6M barrel rise in crude stocks in the week of March 13, versus expectations for a 4.4M build.

FedEx noted that it expects to deliver "record" yearly earnings for the current fiscal year and next fiscal year as well... Oracle (ORCL) shares rose 2.5% after the company's third quarter profits matched expectations and it raised its quarterly dividend 25%.

Also higher was Retrophin (RTRX), which rose 28% after the company said it will exercise its right to purchase from Asklepion Pharmaceuticals all worldwide rights, titles, and ownership of Cholbam after the FDA approved the drug for the treatment of pediatric and adult patients with bile acid synthesis disorders due to single enzyme defects and for patients with peroxisomal disorders.
