16:40 EDTFOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher for the fifth straight session. Volume remained light on this Monday following Easter, as a number of international markets remained closed. The averages spent time on both sides of the flat-line early in the trading day before settling into a narrow range in positive territory for most of the second half of the session. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed national activity index fell to 0.20 in March, matching the consensus forecast. The Conference Board's index of leading indicators rose 0.8% in March, beating the consensus forecast for an increase of 0.7%. COMPANY NEWS: Ford (F) is preparing to announce that its Chief Operating Officer, Mike Fields, will take the CEO role at the company following the retirement of current CEO Alan Mulally later this year, according to a report from Bloomberg. Shares of Ford were little changed for the session following the report, losing 2c, or 0.13%, to close at $15.98... U.S.-listed shares of British pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca (AZN) gained $5.61, or 8.84%, to $69.10 after the U.K.'s Sunday Times said Pfizer (PFE) has takeover interest in the company. Analysts had mixed opinions on the report, with Citigroup saying a bid looks "highly probable," while analysts at Bernstein think such a deal would conflict with Pfizer's strategy of getting smaller. Shares of Pfizer rose 61c, or 2.02%, to $30.86 following the report... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT), up $9.58, or 39.26%, to $33.98 after announcing plans to submit a New Drug Application to the FDA by the end of this year for the approval of eteplirsen for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Also higher was Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), which rose 43c, or 11.65%, to $4.12 after the semiconductor manufacturer reported earnings and revenue that topped expectations after the close on Thursday. Among the noteworthy losers was MoneyGram (MGI), down $2.01, or 13.57%, to $12.80 in its second straight losing session after Wal-Mart (WMT) announced that it was launching its own money transfer service. MoneyGram's slide today comes after the stock dropped by more than 18% on Thursday following Wal-Mart's announcement. Also lower was lululemon (LULU), down $2.64, or 5.11%, to $49.07 after analysts at Sterne Agee said the company's investor day presentation, held on Thursday, did not include a substantive plan to grow same-store sales. INDEXES: The Dow was up 40.71, or 0.25%, to 16,449.25, the Nasdaq was up 26.03, or 0.64%, to 4,121.55, and the S&P 500 was up 7.04, or 0.38%, to 1,871.89.

14:14 EDTFDeutsche Bank upgrades Ford on earnings outlook
Deutsche Bank upgraded Ford (F) to Buy from Hold in a note to investors, saying that the company's earnings are poised to increase significantly in 2015-2016. WHAT'S NEW: Ford can increase the price of its pickup trucks, Deutsche Bank analyst Rod Lache wrote. The company's pickups now cost just an average of about $150 per vehicle more than GM's offerings, versus the average gap of $3,000 over the last five years, Lache explained. Ford's new F150 truck will be less expensive than previously expected, as the truck's aluminum body will be cheaper than anticipated and the company has been able to find other ways to cut production costs, the analyst stated. Additionally, Ford's prospects in Europe and China are "favorable," according to the analyst, who upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold. He raised his price target on the shares to $19 from $18.50. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Lache was somewhat upbeat on General Motors (GM), saying that the company can keep it profits at "decent" levels by cutting its costs. However, he added that the automaker's products have not met expectations. Lache now expects GM's share of the pickup truck market share to drop to 17% in 2015 from 17.5% this year. He lowered his 2014 EPS estimate for GM to $2.58 from $3.38 and reduced his 2015 EPS estimate for the company to $4.20 from $4.80. Lache reduced his price target on the shares to $41 from $48, but kept a Buy rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Ford added 0.6% to $15.72, while GM fell 2.9% to $32.33.

07:31 EDTFChina auto sales growth slowed in March, WSJ reports
The China Association of Automobile Manufacturers said 1.71M passenger vehicles were sold there in March, which was up 7.9% from a year earlier but a slower growth rate than the 11% year-over-year increase seen in the January-to-February period, reported The Wall Street Journal. The association cited weak sales of minivans, which fell 23% in the month, as a large factor, the report noted. Publicly traded automakers include Ford (F), General Motors (GM), Fiat (FIATY), Honda (HMC), Toyota (TM), Nissan (NSANY) and Volkswagen (VLKAY). Reference Link
