14:56 EDTMSFT, IACI, GOOG, YELP, FB, LNKDFacebook trading lower after event introducing 'Graph Search'
Shares of Facebook (FB), which had been higher throughout the morning, are lower in mid-afternoon trading following the company's event to introduce its new "Graph Search" social search engine. During the event, Facebook demonstrated new social search features planned for its site, which are currently in beta testing and available in limited release, and made clear how the graph search differs in many ways from traditional web search as delivered by Google (GOOG) and others. Facebook did, however, announce that it has partnered with Microsoft's (MSFT) Bing to integrate web searches where appropriate to supplement graph searching. Facebook illustrated ways that the new product could be used to provide user specific answers to challenges like finding restaurants, potential job applicants and prospective dates. Shares of several companies that potentially could be impacted by those features were volatile and moved lower during the event, including Yelp (YELP), LinkedIn (LNKD) and IAC/InterActive (IACI), the owner of Match.com and other dating properties. Following the event, Facebook's stock is down 0.83, or 2.67%, to $30.06, Google is up 50c to $723.75, and Microsoft is up 23c to $27.11. LinkedIn has recovered, and is now up 44c, or 0.4%, to $117.98, while Yelp remains down 1.62, or 7.5%, to $20.31, and IAC/InterActive is down 95c, or 2.2%, to $42.45.

16:39 EDTYELPOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply lower as selling pressure took hold early in the session and did not relent.

ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial claims for unemployment benefits fell to 300K last week, hitting their lowest weekly level since May 2007.

In China, exports fell 6.6% from a year earlier in March, while imports plunged 11.3%. Economists had predicted year-over-year gains for both.

The online retail marketplace was among the many tech names suffering losses, closing the session down $1.81, or 3.24%, at $54.08...

General Motors made news again as well by confirming that two of its engineers have been placed on paid leave as part of the company's ongoing ignition switch recall probe. The company also added ignition lock cylinders to its safety recall of 2.2 million vehicles in the U.S. and said it expects to take a $1.3B charge in the first quarter due to recall-related repairs... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was drugstore operator Rite Aid (RAD), which rose 54c, or 8.44%, to $6.94 after reporting earnings and revenue and that beat expectations and giving a revenue outlook for its fiscal 2015 that came in above estimates. Also higher following a better than expected earnings report was casual restaurant owner Ruby Tuesday (RT), which advanced 72c, or 12.08%, to $6.68. Among the noteworthy losers was data security solutions provider Imperva (IMPV), down $21.73, or 43.7%, to $28.00 which plunged 41% after the company slashed its first quarter profit and sales outlook. Another name in computer security, FireEye (FEYE), was among a a number of so-called "momentum" stocks that fell during the session, sliding $6.64, or 11.77%, to $49.75.

07:48 EDTFBFacebook strong Q1 mostly factored into consensus, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank thinks consensus estimates are catching up to the strong fundamentals at Facebook. The firm expects Facebook to report strong Q1 results, but it thinks the consensus is already factoring much of that into the numbers. As such, Deutsche said it is less optimistic going into Facebook's Q1 results than it was last quarter. The firm still considers Facebook a "must-own" and keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $76 price target.
