16:23 EDTDOWOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Tuesday
Stocks began the session in negative territory and remained there throughout the entire session. The early weakness was attributed to oil prices, which were down early and never recovered during the day. The losses of more than 5% brings the loss over the past two days to more than 10%, pushing WTI crude back below $30 a barrel and squashing equities in the process. Any hope that oil prices would de-couple from stock prices will have to wait another day as the two continue to move in lockstep with each other. Even a solid earnings report from tech bellwether Alphabet (GOOG) could not help the market. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the economic calendar was quiet. In Europe, statistics agency Eurostat reported that unemployment across the eurozone decreased by 49,000 to a total of 16.75M in December dropping the unemployment rate to its lowest since September 2011 at 10.4%. In central bank news, the Reserve Bank of Australia and Reserve Bank of India both held their benchmark interest rates steady, as expected. COMPANY NEWS: Class A shares of Alphabet (GOOGL) advanced 1.3% to $780.91 after its better than expected quarterly results were followed by analysts around Wall Street hiking their price targets for shares, including Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Sandler, who raised his target on the parent of Google to $1,080 from $900... Exxon Mobil (XOM) reported better than expected revenue and profits in the fourth quarter, but its shares slid 2.2% to $74.61 amid the renewed weakness in oil prices. Shares of fellow oil major BP (BP) plunged 8.5% to $29.02 in New York trading after reporting a steep quarterly loss, largely due to $2.6B in charges related to impairments of Upstream assets as well as restructuring... Ford (F) shares fell 4.6% after the company reporting that its U.S. sales declined 3% last month versus a year ago. Peer General Motors (GM) slid 1.5% after reporting that its U.S. sales grew 0.5% in January... Dow Chemical (DOW) jumped 5.75% to $45.03 after posting better than expected earnings and revenue. Of note, Dow CEO Andrew Liveris said he plans to transition out of the company when it completes its planned merger with DuPont (DD). MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Michael Kors (KORS) and Mattel (MAT), which rose nearly 24% and almost 14%, respectively, following their earnings reports. Also higher was Pacific Biosciences (PACB), which jumped 24% to $12.67 after Reuters said Roche (RHHBY) has recently approached the company to discuss a potential acquisition. Among the noteworthy losers following earnings were Integrated Device (IDTI), which fell 26.8%, ADT (ADT), which dropped 15.7%, and Royal Caribbean (RCL), which declined 15.2%. INDEXES: The Dow fell 295.64, or 1.8%, to 16,153.54, the Nasdaq lost 103.42, or 2.24%, to 4,516.95, and the S&P 500 declined 36.35, or 1.87%, to 1,903.03.

12:15 EDTGLWEarnings Watch: Corning sees Q4 LCD glass volume down slightly
Corning (GLW) is expected to report fourth quarter earnings on Tuesday, January 26 before the market open with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. Corning is a globally diversified technology company. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 32c on revenue of $2.33B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 28c-33c on revenue of $2.3B-$2.36B. LAST QUARTER: Corning reported third quarter core EPS of 34c against estimates for 34c, on revenue of $2.27B against estimates for $2.5B. It reported Q3 core sales of $2.45B. Corning expects Q4 LCD glass volume down slightly, sequentially. Corning announced a strategic and capital allocation framework designed to return more than $10B to shareholders through 2019. As a first step to delivering the plan, Corning's Board of Directors increased the company's share repurchase authorization by $4B. The company also announced plans to commence a $1.25B accelerated share repurchase program during the fourth quarter. Additionally, the company anticipates increasing its dividend per common share by at least 10% annually through 2019. On December 11, Corning announced that it will exchange its 50% interest in Dow Corning Corporation for 100% of the stock of a newly formed entity that will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Corning Incorporated. The newly formed entity will hold approximately 40% ownership in Hemlock Semiconductor Group and approximately $4.8B in cash. Corning expects the realignment to be substantially tax-free. STREET RESEARCH: Street research has been mixed in the weeks leading up to Corning's Q4 earnings report. On November 19, Susquehanna said Corning had recently focused on new end-market opportunities that could help provide growth as display matures. Although the firm noted the company is trying to find opportunities, they saw only 6%-8% accretion to 2017 earnings. Susquehanna reiterated its Positive rating and $22 price target on Corning shares. On December 14, Bernstein said Corning will benefit from the Dow Corning deal. After Corning (GLW) and Dow Chemical (DOW) announced that Corning will exchange its 50% interest in joint venture Dow Corning for a 100% stake in a newly-formed entity that will have $4.8B in cash, Bernstein said that Dow Corning's earnings stream was only worth $2B. The firm kept a $26 price target and Outperform rating on Corning. On December 17, JPMorgan analyst Rod Hall downgraded Corning to Neutral from Overweight saying the weak macro environment is driving slower than expected TV shipments. Corning's valuation is full at current levels, Hall told investors in a research note where he cut his price target for the shares to $18 from $20. PRICE ACTION: Corning's shares are down marginally since Q3 results were released. However, over the past twelve months, the stock has fallen approximately 29%. In early afternoon trading ahead of Tuesday's Q4 report, Corning's shares are down just over 1%.
