12:41 EDTYOKUOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks began the day sharply higher and have continued to tack on gains throughout the morning. The marketís move put the Nasdaq back above 5,000 and the S&P above 2,100. The market is undergoing quadruple witching, which occurs 4 times per year and typically is accompanied by high volume and volatility. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the economic calendar was quiet. The Baker Hughes U.S. rig count, which has been closely watched in recent months amid the protracted slide in oil prices, is expected at 1:00 pm EDT. The count of U.S. rigs stood at 1125 at the end of last week. In Europe, reports indicate German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Greece has agreed to send a list of overhauled reforms to European officials within days. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Nike (NKE) advanced 4% following its Q3 earnings beat. Credit Suisse raised Nike's price target to $106 following the report, saying Nike's underlying futures growth remains in double-digits and preliminary FY16 guidance suggests management has been effective in managing currency headwinds... The shares of Biogen (BIIB) rallied 8% after the company reported results for an early stage study of its Alzheimer's drug, BIIB-037. The company announced that the three milligram, six milligram, and ten milligram dose versions of its Alzheimer's treatment, aducanumab, had reduced the amount of amyloid plaque in the brains of Alzheimer's patients taking the drug by statistically significant amounts compared with those taking placebos. The cognitive decline of patients taking BIIB-037 was also significantly less than that of patients who were taking placebos, the company reported. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Prothena (PRTA), which surged 30% after announcing results from a Phase 1 single ascending dose study of its potential treatment of Parkinson's disease. Also higher was Darden Restaurants (DRI), which gained 4% after the owner of the Olive Garden and Long Horn restaurant chains reported earnings that beat expectations. Among the noteworthy losers was China's Youku Tudou (YOKU), which dropped 9% and was downgraded to Sell at Deutsche Bank after the company reported mixed Q4 results. Also lower was Theravance (THRX), which fell 7% after the company and partner GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) announced that an FDA advisory committee voted that the efficacy data for their Breo Ellipta inhaler provides substantial evidence of a clinically meaningful benefit in adults, however it voted against approval for the proposed indication in 12-17 year olds. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 189.04, or 1.05%, to 18,148.07, the Nasdaq was up 40.24, or 0.81%, to 5,032.62, and the S&P 500 was up 19.54, or 0.94%, to 2,108.81.

14:43 EDTYOKUYouku Tudou technical comments ahead of earnings
Shares are trading close to the 52-week low at $14.88 ahead of earnings. That low is not just a 52-week low, but is close to the life low area of the shares at $13.76. Sentiment is negative, with 10.5% of the float short. On a positive surprise this could add significant buy-to-cover demand that could help push shares higher. The first significant test of resistance would come at the 50-day moving average at $16.73. A breakout above that downtrend resistance line proxy could help turn the short-term trend to bullish. Resistance levels above the 50-day as potential upside objectives would be at $17.76 and then at $18.50. It would likely take a move above the $20 area to turn the longer-term trend to bullish. If the news is as or even more negative than current expectations, the life lows would be the first significant support. Below $13.76 there would be not established support, leaving open a drift lower to typical option strike prices at $13, $12.50, and $12.
