12:11 EDTKERX, PANL, INSP, NWSA, WFR, TSLA, KSS, MNST, CSCO, SGI, WIN, PCLN, SNEOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, with the Dow higher in spite of a steep decline in shares of Cisco (CSCO) following its earning report and guidance. Stock futures rallied into positive territory during the pre-market trading session, with the move solidified by the in line jobless claims data and a rally in stock markets in Europe. U.S. equities opened higher but met resistance in the early going. The failure to push through some technical levels saw the market lose some of its steam. The averages have been generally mixed since about an hour into trading, with the Dow and S&P higher and the Nasdaq in negative territory... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., 367,000 initial jobless claims were reported, which was basically in line with last week's figure and with consensus estimates. The U.S. trade deficit grew 14.1% to $51.83B in March, versus estimates of $50.0B. U.S. imports grew 5.2%, the biggest gain since January 2011, while U.S. exports rose 2.9% to a record $186.8B. Also, import prices decreased 0.5%, versus the expected decrease of 0.2%. In Europe, the Bank of England left its benchmark interest rate at 0.5%, as expected, and did not increase its plans for asset purchases. In China, foreign trade growth in April disappointed as exports rose only 4.9% from a year earlier, down from 8.9% in March... COMPANY NEWS: Dow component Cisco reported quarterly earnings and revenue that just beat consensus views but forecast earnings in the coming quarter below the Street's expectations. The company's pessimistic view on challenges in Europe and weakness in India resonated with investors and the stock slid nearly 10%... News Corp. (NWSA) shares gained about 5% after the company reported revenue and profit that beat expectations and it raised its stock repurchase program by $5B to $10B... Sony (SNE) projected it will swing back to profit this fiscal year on a recovery in its consumer electronics and component businesses, giving its shares a 1% boost... Among others reporting earnings, advancers included Monster Beverage (MNST) and InfoSpace (INSP); decliners included Priceline.com (PCLN), Kohl's (KSS), Universal Display (PANL) and Windstream (WIN)... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Tesla Motors (TSLA), up nearly 12%, after it reported quarterly sales and losses that were worse than expected but also increased the low end of its full year revenue guidance, and Keryx Biopharmaceuticals (KERX), up more than 16%, following upgrades to Buy ratings at Ladenburg and Roth Capital, which both cited the company's Zerenex program. Noteworthy losers included Silicon Graphics (SGI), down over 27%, after projecting losses for next quarter and for the year, and MEMC Electronic (WFR), down 20%, following its report of quarterly losses that were steeper than expected... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 26.83, or 0.21%, to 12,861.89; the Nasdaq was down 11.13, or 0.38%, to 2,923.58; and the S&P 500 was up 2.76, or 0.20%, to 1,357.34.

07:33 EDTTSLATesla 2015 earnings estimate slashed 80% at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank cut its 2015 earnings estimate for Tesla by 80% to 11c from 52c to account for the car maker's exposure to the weakening euro. Deutsche points out 30% of Tesla's global sales are exposed to the euro. The firm also reduced its 2016 earnings estimate to $1.75 from $2.00 while noting its out year assumptions remain intact. Deutsche's new estimates are well below the current consensus expectations of 79c and $4.20 for Tesla’s 2015 and 2016, respectively. The firm keeps a Buy rating and $245 price target on Tesla, however, believing the company’s cost structure and car sale prices will "overwhelm" adverse currency moves over the longer term. Shares of the electric car maker closed yesterday down $2.67 to $191.07.
