16:47 EDTAMAG, TSLA, ARX, NWSA, MNST, CSCOOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed, as a disappointing outlook from Cisco (CSCO) and continued worries about Europe weighed on the averages. Stock futures moved higher following the in line jobless claims data, leading to a higher open for the broader market. The market met resistance at the open and began to pullback before making a second run at the resistance level. After failing a second time the market began to give up its gains, with the Nasdaq falling into negative territory. By the afternoon the market had strengthened and once again all three of the major equity indices were above the flat line. However, at the close the Nasdaq was back in the red, barely preventing the big three from ending positive for the first time in several days… ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., 367,000 initial jobless claims were reported, basically falling 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. Also, the U.S. Treasury posted a $59.1B budget surplus for April, versus expectations of a surplus of $35B. In Europe, some fears about Spain's banking system eased after its government said it will nationalize the country's fourth-largest bank... COMPANY NEWS: 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 more than 10%... News Corp. (NWSA) shares gained close to 5% after the company reported revenue and profit that beat expectations and it raised its stock repurchase program by $5B to $10B... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Tesla Motors (TSLA), up $2.90, or 9.65%, to $32.96, 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 Monster Beverage (MNST), up $5.86, or 8.97%, to $71.17, after the energy-drink maker reported Q1 results that exceeded expectations, with volume and gross margin increasing. Noteworthy losers included Aeroflex Holding (ARX), down $2.44, or 25.39%, to $7.17, after missing on Q3 EPS and revenue and making Q4 predictions that fell well short of analyst estimates, and AMAG Pharma (AMAG), down $2.35, or 14.67%, to $13.67, after the company named a new CEO and indicated it would stop seeking to sell itself... INDICES: The Dow gained $19.98, or 0.16%, to $12,855.04; the Nasdaq fell $1.07, or 0.04%, to $2,933.64; and the S&P 500 added $3.41, or 0.25%, to $1,357.99.

11:12 EDTMNSTMonster Beverage weakness an overrreaction, says Stifel
Stifel said Monster is underperforming on concerns that a ban on energy drink sales to those under 18 years of age in Latvia could spread to other countries. Stifel said the concerns are a considerable overreaction, creating a buying opportunity. The firm's analyst said Latvia is barely a rounding error of the global energy drink market, and likely less than 0.1% of Monster's sales.

11:41 EDTNWSAStifel downgrades Twitter as firm can't see positive spin for executive exits
Twitter (TWTR) is falling after CEO Jack Dorsey confirmed on Sunday night the departure of four company executives, leading research firm Stifel to downgrade the shares. EXECUTIVE EXODUS: The four executives leaving the company are Twitter's head of product, Kevin Weil, head of media, Katie Stanton, head of engineering, Alex Roetter, and head of human resources, Brian "Skip" Schipper. CEO Jack Dorsey confirmed the departures in a tweet, saying, "Want to set the record straight now: Given the inaccurate press rumors today regarding their departures, I'm addressing this now: I'm sad to announce that Alex Roetter, Skip Schipper, Katie Stanton and Kevin Weil have chosen to leave the company... COO Adam Bain will be taking on additional responsibilities, including responsibility for the revenue-related product teams, the media team and the HR team on an interim basis. CTO Adam Messinger will be taking over all of engineering and consumer product, design and research, user services and Fabric into one group." Note that due to Twitter's 140 character limit, Dorsey was forced to post his lengthy message in the form of an image of the text. OTHER EXECUTIVE NEWS: Twitter could name Leslie Berland, currently an executive VP at American Express (AXP), as its new Chief Marketing Officer reporting directly to Dorsey, this week, according to Re/code's Kara Swisher. Additionally, the Wall Street Journal noted that Twitter intends, as part of its shake-up. to bring in two new members to its board as soon as this week. At least one of the people is a high-ranking executive in the media industry, the Journal added. STIFEL DOWNGRADE: Twitter was downgraded to Hold from Buy by Stifel analyst Scott Devitt on Sunday. Devitt cited the executive departures, saying, "While we may not be the sharpest tools in the shed, we don't see how the departure of the heads of three major business divisions can be viewed as a positive in the middle of an attempted business turnaround." PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Twitter shares were down almost 4% to $17.15. Note this decline follows a rise of more than 4% late last week on rumors that News Corp. (NWS, NWSA) and other companies were interested in acquiring Twitter. News Corp. later denied it was building a Twitter stake.
