16:17 EDTRT, PLCM, STZ, PMTC, BBBY, NDAQ, ITMN, FB, NYXOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed, as investors largely decided to stay on the sidelines until after the market's long weekend. Stock futures were lower throughout the pre-market trading session and improved only slightly following the Challenger job cuts report. The jobless claims data went generally unnoticed and the futures action led to a lower open for the broader market. The averages made it into positive territory but while the Nasdaq was able to hold its gains the Dow and S&P struggled. The market spent most of the day near the flat line as investors looked toward tomorrow's jobs report, even though the stock markets will be closed... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Challenger job cuts report said planned reductions were down 8.8% versus the same period one year earlier. Initial jobless claims fell to 357,000 last week, versus the expected 355,000. Continuing jobless claims came in at 3.33M, versus expectations for 3.35M... COMPANY NEWS: Reports from The New York Times and CNBC said that Facebook (FB) has selected the Nasdaq (NDAQ) over the New York Stock Exchange (NYX) as the future home of its stock... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were InterMune (ITMN), up $1.41, or 10.17%, to $15.28, following a favorable opinion for the reimbursement of its Esbriet drug from the Transparency Commission of the French National Health Authority, and Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY), up $5.62, or 8.49%, to $71.85, after its earnings, revenue and same store sales growth all topped its own forecasts. Noteworthy losers included Parametric Technology (PMTC), down $5.74, or 21.10%, to $21.46, and Polycom (PLCM), down $3.63, or 19.96%, to $14.56, after both issued forecasts that disappointed. Also lower were shares of Ruby Tuesday (RT), down $1.61, or 18.13%, to $7.27, and Constellation Brands (STZ), down $3.08, or 12.47%, to $21.61, as both reported earnings above consensus estimates but issued guidance below the Street's expectations... INDICES: The Dow lost 14.61, or 0.11%, to 13,060.14; the Nasdaq gained 12.41, or 0.40%, to 3,080.50; and the S&P 500 fell 0.88, or 0.06%, to 1,398.08.

10:20 EDTFBYahoo rises, Google falls after BofA changes ratings on both
Shares of Yahoo (YHOO) are rising and Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) stock is falling after Bank of America Merrill Lynch upgraded Yahoo and downgraded Google. WHAT'S NEW: Bank of America analyst Justin Post upgraded his rating on Yahoo to Buy from Neutral. Post said he had previously not expected to obtain information about Yahoo's strategy for avoiding taxes on the sale of its stake in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA) at least until well into 2015. However, Yahoo's CFO recently stated that the company continued to be optimistic that it would be able to cut its tax bill and added that the company would divulge its plans for doing so during its next earnings conference call. Yahoo's next earnings conference call is expected to take place by the end of next month, Post noted. He set a $62 price target on Yahoo shares. Meanwhile, Post downgraded Google to Neutral from Buy. The analyst thinks the company is facing several headwinds, including the maturity of its search business, a lack of products that can provide catalysts, and margin pressures as it invests in competitive businesses. As a result of these headwinds, Google's results are likely to be below expectations, Post believes. Meanwhile, the company is also facing increased regulatory risk, particularly in the EU, and increased competition from Facebook (FB) and other social networks. He trimmed his price target on Google to $580 from $600. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Yahoo climbed 1% to $50.94, while Google class A shares declined 1.5% to $534.33.
