12:29 EDTPOT, CSTR, SCTY, MOS, ARAY, AGU, HNR, FINLOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after the monthly jobs report was roughly in-line with forecasts and a measure of growth in the services sector beat expectations. The averages began the session in quiet fashion in what looked like the start of a day of market consolidation after the big advances seen Monday and Wednesday. Yesterday's pullback, triggered by the release of the minutes from the Fed's last meeting, may turn out to be the week's only down day if the current levels hold into the closing bell... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Labor Department said employers added 155,000 jobs in December, which was about in-line with estimates and near the average pace of job growth over the last year. The unemployment rate for November was upwardly revised to 7.8% and the Labor Department said the 7.8% rate carried over to December as well. Factory orders were flat in November, versus expectations for them to increase 0.4%. The December ISM non-manufacturing index, which measures services sector expansion or contraction, came in at 56.1, versus expectations for a 54.1 reading. Reports from the Energy Information Administration showed inventories of crude oil and natural gas both drew down more than expected last week... COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Mosaic (MOS) advanced over 2.5% following its report of better than expected earnings and its peers in the fertilizer industry, including Potash (POT) and Agrium (AGU), rose in concert... Conversely, Finish Line (FINL) reported a break-even quarter, disappointing the Street and prompting downgrades at Northland Securities and Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Finish Line shares slid nearly 6%... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was recent IPO SolarCity (SCTY), which rose over 16% after it gave guidance for its expected growth in deployments this year. Also higher were shares of Harvest Natural Resources (HNR), up 12% after it announced a new oil discovery in West Africa. Among the noteworthy losers were Accuray (ARAY), down 20% following a downgrade to Underweight at JPMorgan after the company's negative Q2 pre-announcement, and Coinstar (CSTR), down over 5% after its CEO announced plan to retire in March... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 15.88, or 0.12%, to 13,407.24; the Nasdaq was up 3.49, or 0.11%, to 3,104.06; and the S&P 500 was up 4.12, or 0.28%, to 1,463.49.

16:31 EDTSCTYSolarCity says majority of financing secured for 2015 needs
SolarCity said, "Following strong growth in 2014, we entered 2015 with high visibility into our full year guidance for 920 - 1,000 MW Deployed. After booking almost 300 MW more than we deployed in 2014, we began the year with a backlog big enough to cover much of our expected first half installations. Ending the year with residential deployments at an annualized run rate of ~600 MW, we have significantly ramped up our installation capacity and plan to scale this beyond 1 GW by year-end even before considering commercial. Lastly, we have secured a majority of the financing commitments required to fund all of our 2015 needs."

14:54 EDTSCTYSolarCity technical notes before earnings news
Shares have been trading in a range bound largely by $47 at the low and $59 at the high for the last several months. A break of either end of this range following results will resolve the range either bearishly or bullishly. If the news is bullish and there is a breakout above $59, next resistance is at $63.30 and then at $65.60. If the news disappoints, first major support below would be at the 50-day moving average at $52.53. It would take exceptionally bearish news to push the shares to the range low. The low of the range was also previously support in the early part of last year. The 52-week low is at $45.79.
