16:27 EDTNXPIOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Wednesday
Stocks began the session in negative territory and remained there throughout the day. Uninspiring earnings reports from Apple (AAPL) and Microsoft (MSFT) were enough to push the Nasdaq lower and the rest of the market followed. There was good news on the housing sector, with both existing home sales and a housing market index coming in with good data, but it was not enough to overcome the tech selloff. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the FHFA home price index rose 0.4% to 222.8 in May, as expected. Existing home sales rose 3.2% to a 5.49M rate in June, better than the 0.9% increase that was expected. In Europe, the European Central Bank reportedly raised the cap on Greece's Emergency Liquidity Assistance by EUR900M to EUR90.4B, according to Bloomberg. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple dropped $5.79, or 4.43%, to $124.96 after iPhone shipments in the just completed quarter and the company's sales forecast for the new quarter missed estimates. A number of suppliers to Apple declined in tandem with the tech giant. Skyworks Solutions (SWKS), Qorvo (QRVO) and NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) were among the many semiconductor stocks that slid following Apple's report... Microsoft declined $1.88, or 3.97%, to $45.40 after reporting its Q4 Devices and Consumer revenue declined 13% and its Windows OEM revenue decreased 22% as revenue was impacted by PC market declines following the XP end-of-support refresh cycle. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Thoratec (THOR), which rose $5.84, or 10.14% to $63.42 after St. Jude Medical (STJ) announced an agreement to acquire the company for $63.50 per share in a transaction valued at $3.4B. Shares of St. Jude, meanwhile, edged down by 4c to $76.67. Also higher following earnings reports were shares of Intuitive Surgical (ISRG) and Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), advancing about 8.5% and 7.8%, respectively. Among the noteworthy losers was Caesars Entertainment (CZR), which dropped $3.26, or 40.65%, to $4.76 following reports that a judge ruled the company must face certain creditor lawsuits that could force a bankruptcy. Caesars Acquisition (CACQ) also dipped after the news, falling $1.13, or 14.52%, to $6.65. Also lower was XOMA (XOMA), which plummeted $3.46, or 78.61%, to 94c and saw downgrades at numerous research firms after the company's Phase 3 gevokizumab study did not meet its primary endpoint. INDEXES: The Dow fell 65.60, or 0.37%, to 17,853.69, the Nasdaq lost 36.35, or 0.7%, to 5,171.77, and the S&P 500 declined 5.06, or 0.24%, to 2,114.15.

12:32 EDTNXPIOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday as slides in a number of big name tech stocks following their earnings reports dominated the news flow and largely dictated the market's direction. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the FHFA home price index rose 0.4% to 222.8 in May, as expected. Existing home sales rose 3.2% to a 5.49M rate in June, better than the 0.9% increase that was expected. In Europe, the European Central Bank reportedly raised the cap on Greece's Emergency Liquidity Assistance by EUR900M to EUR90.4B, according to Bloomberg. COMPANY NEWS: The tech sector has been weak, headlined of course by a 5% pullback in shares of Apple (AAPL) after iPhone shipments in the just completed quarter and the company's sales forecast for the new quarter missed estimates. Adding to the negative tone in tech stocks, and contributing further to the decline in the Nasdaq, was the 3% drop seen in Microsoft (MSFT) shares after its quarterly report as well as Yahoo's (YHOO) 1% decline after its revenue outlook missed the consensus forecast... Shares of Boeing (BA) and Coca-Cola (KO) fared better than Dow peer Apple after each reported better than expected sales and profits, though neither stock was moving far from where they closed yesterday's trading. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Thoratec (THOR), which rose 10% after the company agreed to be acquired by St. Jude Medical (STJ) for $3.4 billion in cash, or $63.50 per share. St. Jude shares advanced fractionally after the deal, which had been foreshadowed by media reports yesterday, was announced. Also higher following their earnings reports were Intuitive Surgical (ISRG), which gained 10%, Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), which advanced 8% and Whirlpool (WHR), which was up 6%. Among the noteworthy losers were a number of suppliers to Apple that declined in tandem with the tech giant after it reported a sequential drop in iPhone sales. Skyworks Solutions (SWKS), Cirrus Logic (CRUS), Qorvo (QRVO) and NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) were among the many semiconductor stocks that slid following Apple's report. Also sharply lower was antibody-based therapeutics maker XOMA (XOMA), which plunged more than 73% and was downgraded to Neutral at Piper Jaffray after a Phase III trial of its gevokizumab drug in patients with Behcet's disease uveitis did not meet its primary endpoint. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 82.22, or 0.46%, to 17,837.07, the Nasdaq was down 42.68, or 0.82%, to 5,165.44, and the S&P 500 was down 6.93, or 0.33%, to 2,112.28.
