14:28 EDTBA, ORCL, CAT, FDXMarket poised for losing week as China, Europe data pulls down shares
Stocks are set to end the week lower after weak economic data from China and Europe made many investors more pessimistic about the global economy. MACRO NEWS: A Chinese purchasing managers' index for March compiled by HSBC fell to 48.1, the lowest level since last November, HSBC reported. Any level below 50 indicates that the country's manufacturing sector contracted... The euro zone's manufacturing base also appears to have contracted, as a March purchasing managers' index for the bloc came in at 48.7, down from 49.3 in February... Also disappointing investors was U.S. housing data, as 313,000 new homes were sold last month, versus the consensus estimate of 325,000. An index of home prices for January and existing home sales for February also came in below expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Industrial companies, including Caterpillar (CAT) and Boeing (BA), saw their stocks decline this week in the wake of the weaker economic reports... FedEx (FDX) reported higher than expected adjusted Q3 EPS but lowered its 2012 EPS guidance... Oracle (ORCL) posted stronger than expected results, but its stock is poised to decline significantly for the week.

10:47 EDTORCLOracle new services round out cloud platform, says Cantor
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Brian White believes Oracle's addition of 25 new cloud services rounds out the Oracle Cloud Platform. He says Oracle is now in a unique position to competitively deliver cloud solutions to enterprise customers and keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $48 price target.
06:04 EDTORCLOracle says extending enterprise cloud portfolio
At a live event yesterday, Oracle (ORCL) Executive Chairman of the Board and CTO Larry Ellison announced new additions to the Oracle Cloud Platform, a comprehensive, integrated suite of services that make it easier for developers, IT professionals, business users and analysts to build, extend and integrate cloud applications. With more than 24 new cloud services, the Oracle Cloud Platform "extends Oracle's leadership with the world's broadest and deepest portfolio" of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. Newly available Oracle Cloud services include, Oracle Database Cloud - Exadata, Oracle Archive Storage Cloud, Oracle Big Data Cloud, Oracle Integration Cloud, Oracle Mobile Cloud, and Oracle Process Cloud. The Oracle Cloud Platform helps customers build new applications, extend existing ones, and easily move existing on-premises workloads to the cloud with no application changes. The services are designed to maximize end user experience and productivity; enable developers to manage and analyze data, rapidly develop, test and deploy applications; enable architects to quickly integrate across on-premises and cloud applications; and enable business users to drive rich business insights and enterprise collaboration. With the Oracle Cloud Platform, customers and partners are able to take advantage of the industry-leading Oracle middleware and database software that thousands of global organizations already use to run their own businesses, all delivered via cloud. The extensive level of automation that has been engineered into the Oracle Cloud, results in faster time-to-value, greater innovation, and lower cost for customers. "Oracle is growing really fast. We sold $426M worth of business in SaaS and PaaS last quarter, a 200 percent increase over the same quarter last year. That's an industry record, no company has ever sold that much in just one quarter," said Ellison. "Oracle is the only company on the planet that can deliver a complete, integrated, standards-based suite of services at every layer of the cloud. Those technology advantages enable us to be much more cost-effective than our competitors. Our new Archive Storage service goes head-to-head with Amazon Glacier (AMZN) and it's one-tenth their price."

06:18 EDTBASuppliers worried about Airbus, Boeing production rate hike, Reuters reports
Major engine suppliers, including General Electric (GE) and Safran, are becoming worried that they may lose out if they invest to meet higher commercial jet production targets from Airbus (EADSY) and Boeing (BA) that may prove unsustainable, Reuters reports. Airbus and Boeing have plans to raise production rates of their best selling single aisle planes by 25% to 50-52 a month in 2017-2018, the report says. Suppliers have said that they need to secure the start of a steep rise in output before making a commitment to even loftier targets, the report says. Reference Link
