News Breaks
May 21, 2012
16:16 EDTBLK, KKD, JPM, LOW, ETN, YHOO, BCS, WPRT, CBE, FBOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher in spite of Facebook (FB) breaking its IPO pricing. Stock futures were higher throughout the premarket trading session as the market got ready to bounce from its two week tailspin. There was little reaction to the better than expected Chicago Fed National Activity Index but the futures action led to a higher open for the broader market. The averages began the day slightly higher but moved firmly into the green shortly after midmorning. The market then moved in a narrow range for most of the session, but with an upward trend, as the market finally broke its losing streak... ECONOMIC EVENTS: Domestically, the Chicago Fed National Activity Index rose to +0.11 for the month of April from -0.29 in March... COMPANY NEWS: Facebook shares fell below their $38 issue price in premarket trading and continued to slide as much as 13.7% before finding a level near $33. In its second day of trading the stock closed down $4.20, or 10.99%, at $34.03... Yahoo! (YHOO) agreed to sell half of its 40% stake in Chinese e-commerce group Alibaba for about $7.1B and laid out a joint agreement for a plan to dispose of the remainder of its stake over time. Yahoo did not give exact plans for what it will do with the proceeds, expected to be about $4.2B after taxes, but did increase its share repurchase authorization by $5B concurrently with the transaction... JP Morgan (JPM) slid close to another 3% as the company's CEO Jamie Dimon announced at an investor conference that the bank is suspending its share repurchase program for the time being as it works to strengthen its capitalization ahead of new regulations... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Cooper Industries (CBE), up $14.04, or 25.14%, to $69.88, after agreeing to be acquired by Eaton Corporation (ETN) in a cash and stock deal valued at $72.00 per share, and Krispy Kreme (KKD), up 61c, or 10.15%, to $6.62, following its report of better than expected earnings. Also higher were shares of Westport Innovations (WPRT), up $2.83, or 11.93%, to $26.56, as Craig-Hallum said in a note to investors that the firm sees more catalysts heading into Westport's analyst day later this week and continues to recommend the stock as the shift towards natural gas in trucking is hitting a tipping point. Noteworthy losers included Lowe's (LOW), down $2.88, or 10.11%, to $25.60, after its sales and profits beat estimates but its yearly earnings guidance came in below consensus, and BlackRock (BLK), down $4.18, or 2.43%, to $167.73, as Barclays (BCS) announced plans to sell its entire 19.6% stake in the alternative investment manager... INDICES: The Dow gained 135.10, or 1.09%, to 12,504.48; the Nasdaq rose 68.42, or 2.46%, to 2,847.21; and the S&P 500 added 20.77, or 1.60%, to 1,315.99.

15:18 EDTJPMJPMorgan technical notes ahead of earnings
The shares are trading close to the 52-week high which is at $63.49. On strongly positive news, the stock would be pushed toward the life high at $67.17. That would be an important technical milestone if it was reached. Traders should note however that that move would on a long-term basis appear as a move up to prior resistance without being a bullish breakout. Until or if there is a breakout above the old life high, there is retracement risk even on good results. On news that is more bearish than current expectations would suggest, first major support would be at the 50-day moving average at $60.10. On a move below that level, next support would be at $57.87.
