16:35 EDTEMC, SWIR, VMW, NTGR, VLO, DHI, LLY, KERX, PFE, HES, FOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed as the Dow closed only 200 or so points away from a high it has not reached since October 2007. A less-than-stellar consumer confidence reading for January stalled the advance early in the session, but the averages all rebounded and closed at or near their best levels of the day, though the Nasdaq was unable to hold in positive ground... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the November S&P/Case-Shiller 20-city Home-Prices Index was up a seasonally adjusted 0.6% from the prior month, versus expectations for a 0.7% increase. On a year-over-year basis, the 20-city index rose 5.5%, which was nearly in-line with consensus. The Consumer Confidence reading for January fell to 58.6, versus expectations for a smaller decline to 64.0... COMPANY NEWS: Ford (F) reported quarterly results that beat expectations on both the top and bottom lines. However, concerns over Europe, where the company said it expects to lose about $2B in 2013, sent shares down 64c, or 4.64%, to $13.14... Pharma giants Pfizer (PFE) and Eli Lilly (LLY) both reported earnings that beat consensus estimates before the market opened and both rallied. Dow-member Pfizer led that index with a 3.2%, or 86c, advance to $27.70, while Lilly gained $1.68, or 3.19%, to $54.32... MAJOR MOVERS: Higher for the second straight day were shares of Hess (HES), up $5.63, or 9.01%, to $68.11 after gaining over 6% yesterday, and Keryx Biopharmaceuticals (KERX), up $2.30, or 38.01%, to $8.36 today after rising over 76% yesterday. Also higher after earnings reports were DR Horton (DHI), which gained $2.51, or 11.78%, to $23.82, and Valero (VLO), which added $4.96, or 12.78%, to $43.77. Among the noteworthy losers was VMware (VMW), down $21.18, or 21.54%, to $77.14 after its guidance disappointed the Street and the stock was downgraded by numerous firms. EMC (EMC), which holds a majority ownership stake in VMware and also reported last night, also lost $1.02, or 4.05%, to $24.18. Also lower were shares of NetGear (NTGR), down $4.45, or 10.9%, to $36.38 after agreeing to acquire Sierra Wireless's (SWIR) AirCard business assets for $138M in cash. Sierra Wireless (SWIR) advanced $1.69, or 18.45%, to $10.85 after the news... INDICES: The Dow was up 72.49, or 0.52%, to 13,954.42; the Nasdaq was down 0.64, or 0.02%, to 3,153.66; and the S&P 500 was up 7.66, or 0.51%, to 1,507.84.

13:59 EDTDHID.R. Horton technical comments before earnings
In the prior three months the shares have outperformed, trading up over 15%. Over the prior year the shares have traded in a range largely contained by $20 at the low and $25 at the high. Ahead of earnings, the stock is trading closer to the top of the range. When looking at a long-term chart, 10-year basis, the price action from March 2013 until now appears to be a symmetrical triangle in formation. That pattern would be a bullish continuation pattern given the uptrend that preceded its formation. On strong news and outlook, a move above $25 would trigger that pattern. Upside objectives could be at resistance at $25.97, $27.75, and $29.22. If the news disappoints, the lower bound of the triangle could be tested at the $20 area. A breakdown below $20 would void the pattern. Support levels that could become downside objectives would be at $18.99, $17.60, and $16.32.
13:00 EDTHESHess Corp. increases five-year production growth rate forecast
Hess Corporation will review its growth strategy and provide a detailed update on its portfolio at an Investor Day in Houston. CEO John Hess, COO Greg Hill and other members of the leadership team will outline plans and targets that underpin the company’s strategy and commitment to deliver value to shareholders. The company is increasing its five-year production growth rate forecast to 6%-10% compounded annually from 2013 through 2018 between $90 and $100 Brent. With the success of its 2014 downspacing pilots confirmed, the company is increasing its Bakken net peak production guidance to approximately 175,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day by 2020; adding an additional 1,000 well locations to a total of more than 4,000; and increasing its net estimated ultimate recovery to more than 1.4 BBOE. Utica’s net peak production is forecast to reach approximately 40,000 BOEPD by 2020, with approximately 500 well locations and a net EUR of more than 300 MMBOE. This is the first time the company is providing guidance for this asset. Significant production growth and free cash generation are forecast from Hess’ offshore assets, particularly in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico with the Stampede field sanctioned in October for first oil in 2018 and production startup underway at Tubular Bells.
08:04 EDTFFord announces partnership with Wind Energy Corporation
Ford Motor Company is collaborating with Wind Energy Corporation to bring a new and innovative source of clean energy to its dealers. Under a pilot program exclusive to Ford, Wind Energy will install wind sail and solar panel systems at four Ford dealerships, a nearly $750,000 investment, to help power dealer facilities. A Windy System is expected to deliver 20,000 kilowatts of electricity annually. That is enough energy to power two average-sized homes for a year or charge a Ford Focus Electric 870 times, Fusion Energi 2,600 times and C-MAX Energi 2,600 times. Using one Windy System will offset nearly 14 tons of greenhouse gases per year.
