12:50 EDTAAPLOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday following reports from some of the biggest names in technology and ahead of reports tonight from several other tech giants. The averages opened in positive territory, with the tech-heavy Nasdaq up more than 1% soon after the opening bell. The index was unable to hold its early gains and moved into negative territory, taking the other major averages with it. The indexes were able to keep their losses to a minimum and eventually regrouped and made it back onto positive ground, where they stood near noon. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose 24K from the prior week to 329K in the week ended April 19, which was above the 315K consensus forecast of analysts, though there may have been some impact from Easter as the Bureau of Labor Statistics noted difficulty adjusting the data around the holiday. Durable goods orders rose 2.6% in March, beating the 2.0% increase that was forecast. Outside the U.S., Russia said it launched military exercises along the Ukrainian border after Ukrainian forces killed pro-Russian militants. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple (AAPL) advanced more than 8% after the company reported significantly better than expected quarterly earnings and sales, particularly sales of its iPhone. Apple also announced a 7-for-1 stock split that will take effect in June, along with an 8% increase in its quarterly dividend and a $30B increase in its share repurchase authorization. Following last night's report, CLSA upgraded its rating on Apple shares to Buy from Outperform and raised its price target for the stock to $695 from $610, while Jefferies recommended "aggressively" buying shares following the Q2 results and outlook for Q3... Another tech giant, Facebook (FB), also reported earning and revenue that topped expectations last night, sending its shares higher in after-hours trading and prompting a number of price target hikes among Street analysts. However, Facebook also announced that its CFO David Ebersman will step down, to be succeeded by David Wehner, who is currently the company's Vice President of Corporate Finance and Business Planning. The social network operator traded on both sides of the flat-line this morning, but was up a bit over 1% at midday... Shares of General Motors (GM) fell about 2% after the company reported profits that narrowly edged out expectations but revenues that fell short of expectations. GM said its core operating performance has been on plan for the year CEO Mary Barra said the company has seen "no meaningful slowdown" in its U.S. sales despite the negative publicity related to its ongoing ignition switch recall and associated legal matters. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was orthopedic device maker Zimmer Holdings (ZMH), which climbed 11% after it agreed to merge with privately held Biomet in a cash and stock transaction valued at about $13.35B, including the assumption of net debt. Also higher following their earnings reports were Citrix Systems (CTXS), which rose 10%, D.R. Horton (DHI), which gained more than 7%, and Aetna (AET), which advanced 6%. Among the noteworthy losers was chip making giant Qualcomm (QCOM), which slid 3.5% despite reporting profits that beat expectations and raising its yearly EPS outlook, as the company also disclosed the receipt of a notice from the SEC about a potential filing of an enforcement action against the company related to anti-bribery violations. Also lower following their earnings reports were Xilinx (XLNX), which fell about 9%, Raytheon (RTN), which dropped 4%, and Hershey (HSY), which also declined about 4%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 19.49, or 0.12%, to 16,521.14, the Nasdaq was up 25.91, or 0.63%, to 4,152.87, and the S&P 500 was up 5.35, or 0.29%, to 1,880.74.
12:25 EDTAAPLApple shares cheap, Netflix expensive, Barron's reports
While Apple (AAPL) and Netflix (NFLX) both reported better than expected profit this week, Apple's shares look cheap based on strong cash generation. Netflix, on the other hand, had strong growth, but only generated a small cash profit, and therefore looks pricey, according to Barron's. Reference Link

18:08 EDTAAPLApple iPhone ASPs were down $41 in Q2 in part from stronger 4S sales
Regarding the decline in ASPs or 'average selling price' on the iPhone, Apple said on its Q2 earnings call: "When you look at the $41 of decline, I would say about half of that was driven by the fact that we have continued to do very well in emerging markets with the 4S. I mentioned that there's a lot of markets where we've grown very strongly, in Latin America, in Asia-Pacific, in Eastern Europe. So about half of that decline came from the stronger sales of the 4S. And then the rest was primarily the fact that, again, as we move away from the quarter where we launch the product, we tend to have lower capacity mix in our numbers."

10:43 EDTCCitigroup to resubmit capital plan in 2015, address issues in 2014
Citigroup CEO Michael Corbat said at today's annual meeting, "Based on our conversations with the Federal Reserve, we don't believe their objection was owing to an issue with our business model, our strategy, levels of capital, or capability to generate capital. We are consulting closely with the Fed to identify exactly where they believe our procedures fall short, so that we can fix the problems they've identified. And rather than resubmitting this year, we've decided to focus our energies on addressing those issues in preparation for our 2015 capital plan. This will require investment in new talent, the acceleration of spending on certain systems, and changes to the way we build, validate and test our scenarios....I want, and our shareholders deserve, an industrial strength, permanent solution that paves the way for sustainable capital return over time. And achieving that will be my highest priority for the remainder of 2014."

Sales of Apple's (AAPL) iPhones may be further pressured as carriers make faster progress in transitioning customers away from subsidies, the Wall Street Journal reports. U.S. wireless carriers like T-Mobile US (TMUS) and AT&T (T) have been having more success than expected in moving customers to non-subsidy plans, a transition that could harm sales of expensive handsets such as the iPhone.

On April 3, Judge Rodney Gilstrap of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, ruled that the Jury had no basis for invalidating the 802 patent at the trial of the WiLAN vs. Apple lawsuit in October 2013. In addition to this case, WiLAN is in litigation with Apple in the Southern District of California concerning the infringement of two patents related to LTE technology. WiLAN expects the case in Southern California to go to trial later this year if not settled earlier.

08:05 EDTCCitigroup reports Q1 loan loss reserve release of $673M
Reports Q1 net credit losses of $2.4B, down 15% versus prior year period. CVA/DVA was $7M, or $4M after-tax, in the first quarter, compared to negative $319M, or negative $198M after-tax, in the prior year period. Q1 included a $210M tax charge related to corporate tax reforms enacted in two states. These reforms lowered marginal tax rates, resulting in a reduction in Citigroup’s state deferred tax assets. CEO Michael Corbat said, “Despite a quarter that was difficult for our company, we delivered strong results. Both our consumer and institutional businesses performed well and we grew both loans and deposits while holding the line on our expenses. We reduced our deferred tax assets more than any other quarter since the crisis and drove Citi Holdings closer to break even. $4B in net income helped generate $6B in regulatory capital during the quarter and increased our estimated Tier 1 Common ratio to 10.4% on a Basel III basis. Very cognizant of our shareholders desire to see a sustainable return of capital, we are engaged with the Fed to better understand their expectations regarding the CCAR process. We are committed to bringing our capital planning process to the highest possible standards, befitting an institution of our global reach. I will dedicate whatever resources and make whatever changes necessary to achieve this critical goal."

The firm thinks Qualcomm's (QCOM) long term prospects remain intact and it reiterates a Buy rating on the stock with an $86 price target.

09:49 EDTSPYS&P 500 breaks to lows, bounces, levels to watch
The index slipped to a session low at 1819.67 out of the gate, but additional weakness has so far prompted buying and not selling. At the current price of 1825.19, resistance is at 1832.31. Looking ahead, now that the 1840-1880 range has resolved on the downside, for the moment, we can look at other significant levels. The bad news for bears is that for a significant break of the index to begin to happen, the 1811 to 1800 area is the one that would need to be broken. That could well happen if earnings and guidance disappoint next week. If they do not however, we could see consolidation at a lower band. That is, a sideways move at lower levels than the 1840-1880 range. That would frustrate both bulls and bears who have been looking for much larger movement.

13:29 EDTSPYS&P 500 tests 1840 once again, levels to watch
The index is near 1840, a now familiar level to traders as the index has oscillated between 1840 and 1880/90 now for more than a month. A breakdown below 1840 would see next support at 1836.25. Resistance is at 1847.61. A move below 1840 that stopped at 1830 would just mean the existing range has been slightly expanded, just as 1890 was an expansion of the 1880 band which proved short-lived. Today is in many respects an inversion of yesterday's trading day, but without any real signs of panic with the exception of certain names, such as Pandora (P), where there are big give-ups.
