16:28 EDTQCOMMarket finishes week lower as earnings, GDP miss drag down stocks
Stocks ended the week lower as several major companies reported weaker than expected results or gave disappointing guidance and a number of U.S. economic data points came in below the consensus outlook. MACRO NEWS: The Federal Reserve reiterated that it would exercise patience in deciding when to raise interest rates. The central bank added that economic growth was expanding at a "solid" pace... U.S. economic data was mixed, as Q4 GDP growth, durable goods orders for December, and pending home sales came in below expectations, but weekly jobless claims and new home sales for December beat expectations... In Europe, the annual cost of living in the euro zone currency bloc fell 0.6% in January, versus analysts' forecast for a fall of 0.5%. However, the bloc's unemployment rate inched down to 11.4% in December from 11.5% in November. Analysts had expected the unemployment rate to remain unchanged. COMPANY NEWS: Apple's (AAPL) shares rose after the company reported record results, beating analysts' expectations. The company sold 74.5M iPhones last quarter, a figure that also beat the consensus outlook... Visa (V), Boeing (BA), Amazon.com (AMZN), Google (GOOG), and video game maker Electronic Arts (EA) were among the companies that rose following their earnings reports. Facebook (FB) reported stronger than expected results but its stock was little changed on the week... Microsoft (MSFT), Caterpillar (CAT), Qualcomm (QCOM), Alibaba (BABA), DuPont (DD), and 3M (MMM) fell after reporting their results... Yahoo (YHOO) announced that it plans to spin off its stake in Alibaba later this year in a tax-free transaction. The announcement led to speculation that Yahoo could become a takeover target... McDonald's (MCD) announced that its CEO, Don Thompson, would step down and be replaced by its current Chief Brand Officer, Steve Easterbrook. Its stock reacted favorably to the executive change... Qualcomm (QCOM) cut its fiscal 2015 guidance and announced that its Snapdragon 810 processor will not be in the upcoming design cycle of a large customer's flagship device. A number of analysts and media outlets said that Samsung was the company to which Qualcomm was referring. INDEXES: For the week, the Dow is down 2.83% to 17,164.95, the Nasdaq is down 2.56% to 4,635.24, and the S&P is down 2.77% to 1,994.99.

16:55 EDTQCOMOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street struggled for direction for the first half of the session, making several passes across the flat line. The market seemed ready for a positive day after better than expected jobless claims data, and the buyers finally emerged in the second half of the day. The past two days had taken almost 500 points from the Dow, though the blue chip index ended up recapturing about half of those losses with its gains today. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., jobless claims plunged by 43K to 265K last week, versus expectations for 300K first-time claims. That was the lowest weekly level in nearly 15 years, though the government cautioned that the inclusion of the Martin Luther King holiday makes the data more difficult to calculate. The pending home sales index dropped 3.7% to 100.7 in December, versus expectations for it to have risen 0.5%. COMPANY NEWS: McDonald's (MCD) was the best performing member of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, rising $4.49, or 5.06%, to $93.27 after announcing last night that Don Thompson will retire as president and CEO on March 1. Steve Easterbrook, who was previously senior executive VP and Chief Brand Officer, was selected to replace Thompson as CEO... Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA) reported fourth quarter earnings per share, excluding certain items, that beat analysts' consensus estimate, but its revenue came in below expectations. Shares fell $8.64, or 8.78%, to $89.81 following the report. Yahoo (YHOO), which earlier this week announced that it plans to spin-off its remaining stake in Alibaba in a tax-free transaction, dropped $2.73, or 5.88%, to $43.73 in sympathy. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Coach (COH), which rose $2.48, or 6.8%, to $38.94 after the luxury handbag maker reported better than expected earnings. Also higher was K12 (LRN), which jumped $3.35, or 30.32%, to $14.40 after its second quarter earnings and revenue topped expectations. Among the noteworthy losers was Qualcomm (QCOM), which declined $7.30, or 10.28%, to $63.69 after the chip maker lowered its outlook for fiscal 2015. It also announced that its Snapdragon 810 processor will not be in the upcoming design cycle of a large customer's flagship device, which is widely believed to be Samsung's next generation Galaxy S phone. Also lower were shares of specialty chemicals company Albemarle (ALB), which dropped $7.60, or 13.73%, to $47.77 after the company reported Q4 adjusted EPS and revenue that missed analysts' consensus forecasts and guided toward FY15 revenue and profits that also were below expectations. INDEXES: The Dow rose 225.48, or 1.31%, to 17,416.85, the Nasdaq gained 45.41, or 0.98%, to 4,683.41, and the S&P 500 added 19.09, or 0.95%, to 2,021.25.

16:53 EDTQCOMQualcomm comments on resolution of dispute with licensee in China
The company said, "We resolved the previously disclosed dispute with a licensee in China in the first quarter of fiscal 2015. However, we continue to believe that certain licensees in China are not fully complying with their contractual obligations to report their sales of licensed products to us (which includes certain licensees underreporting a portion of their 3G/4G device sales) and that unlicensed companies may seek to delay execution of new licenses while the NDRC investigation is ongoing. We are taking steps to address these issues, although the outcome and timing of any resolutions are uncertain. We expect global 3G/4G device shipments to be approximately 1.35 billion for calendar year 2014. However, due to the issues described above, we do not believe that all of the global 3G/4G device shipments for calendar year 2014 will be reported to us within the time periods required by our license agreements. Accordingly, we currently estimate approximately 1.135 billion to 1.175 billion calendar year 2014 3G/4G device shipments will actually be reported to us through the first calendar quarter of 2015. We expect global 3G/4G device shipments to be approximately 1.5 billion to 1.6 billion for calendar year 2015. At this time, we are not providing a forecast for calendar year 2015 reported 3G/4G device shipments."
