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.

14:38 EDTFDXFedEx technical comments ahead of earnings
The shares have been trading in a range largely bound by $170 at the low and $180 at the high since December of last year. So well-defined is the range that the 50-day moving average has gone flat, neatly bisecting the range at $174.63. These bounds may help us better understand where the shares may move following results. A breakout above $180 on strong news or outlook would resolve this range bullishly. The life high at $183.51 would very likely be tested, opening up a run to the $185 to $190 area. When ranges resolve, they tend to exhibit strong price reactions which could easily exceed the reaction expected by straddle pricing. On neutral news, the stock may fall near the 50-day moving average. If the news is a bearish surprise, we could expect the low of the range to be tested at the $170 area. It would take a break below that range low to turn the trend to bearish. Next support in that event would be at $167.62.

13:37 EDTBABoeing responds to IAM's petition to unionize Boeing South Carolina
Boeing was notified that the International Association of Machinists union has petitioned the National Labor Relations Board for a union election at the company's North Charleston, S.C., facilities. If the NLRB permits it, a vote will be scheduled for eligible teammates to decide whether they will turn over their rights to the IAM or keep a direct relationship with the company. "Boeing South Carolina teammates have done what so many people said couldn't be done. And they did it by working together, engaging every day, and truly committing themselves to the success of our site," said Beverly Wyse, Boeing South Carolina's newly appointed vice president and general manager. "And let's be really clear, the IAM was not part of this success – it was our BSC teammates. In fact, the IAM aggressively opposed it, as publicly demonstrated by their filing of a claim with the National Labor Relations Board, to try to keep our site from even opening. Now, simply by filing this petition, the same union that tried to take our jobs and our work, has already begun to divide our team at a time when we're just beginning to gel and catch a solid rhythm in production." Boeing firmly believes that a union is not in the best interest of Boeing South Carolina teammates and their families, their communities, and the state of South Carolina, especially after years of the IAM insulting the abilities of Boeing South Carolina teammates and fighting against BSC's success. "We think our Boeing South Carolina teammates deserve to pave their own future and keep their hard-earned money in their own pockets," said Wyse. "In fact, they've been very successful doing just that for the past five years. They've built not only new airplanes, but also a new site, and new opportunities for an incredible future here in South Carolina by working together as a team, without the distractions of a union. We're extremely proud of what our teammates have accomplished." Boeing South Carolina has established several outlets to keep teammates, their families and the community updated throughout this process, including a website and Facebook page that provides information, facts, data, and additional resources related to the IAM's unionizing efforts in South Carolina.
