16:36 EDTLMTOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher after a report showed existing homes sales hit their fastest pace in a year during September and Apple (AAPL) gave a better than expected sales forecast for its December quarter. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., existing home sales beat estimates in September, rising 2.4% from the prior month to a 5.17M rate. In China, GDP slowed to 7.3% year-over-year growth pace in Q3 from 7.5% in Q2, though that was slightly better than expected. Chinese industrial production expanded at a 8.0% rate in September, which was well above projections and up from 6.9% growth in August. China's retail sales grew 11.6% in September compared to the prior year, which was nearly in-line with expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple rose $2.71, or 2.72%, to $102.47 after the company reported better than expected quarterly results and gave a better than expected forecast for its sales during the holiday quarter. Following last night's report, analysts at Cantor Fitzgerald said the iPhone maker "executed impressively" in Q4 and provided a strong outlook for Q1. The firm, which believes investors should "start thinking more boldly" about the company, raised its price target for shares to $143 from $123 and kept a Buy rating on the stock... Five of the Dow's 30 members reported on their quarterly results this morning and Coca-Cola (KO) was the clear loser in the bunch. The soda giant's shares dropped $2.61, or 6.03%, to $40.68 after its revenue missed expectations, it warned that it now expects to be below its long-term EPS growth target for 2014, and the company announced new cost-saving measures. Among the other four, McDonald’s (MCD) fell 0.63%, Verizon (VZ) added 0.43%, United Technologies (UTX) gained 0.49%, and Travelers (TRV) rose 1.12%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were medical equipment manufacturer Waters (WAT), which rose $9.63, or 9.87%, to $107.17, and motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson (HOG), which advanced $4.27, or 7.31%, to $62.65. Among the noteworthy losers was Ocwen Financial (OCN), which plunged $4.78, or 18.2%, to $21.48 after the company was called out by the New York Department of Financial Services for erroneously dated letters to borrowers. Benjamin Lawsky, the Superintendent for the NYDFS, stated in his letter to the company that if his department concludes it cannot trust Ocwen's systems and processes, "then it cannot trust Ocwen is complying with the law." Also lower following their earnings reports were Mexican restaurant operator Chipotle (CMG), which fell $45.48, or 6.96%, to $607.55, and defense contractor Lockheed Martin (LMT), which slid $2.92, or 1.66%, to $172.61. INDEXES: The Dow gained 215.14, or 1.31%, to 16,614.81, the Nasdaq advanced 103.40, or 2.4%, to 4,419.48, and the S&P 500 rose 37.27, or 1.96%, to 1,941.28.

14:01 EDTBABoeing technical comments ahead of results
The stock has performed in line with returns from the broader averages over the last three months. The trend has been range bound with the bulk of the range contained at $118 at the low and $128.50 at the high. These two bounds become the defining markers for post-earnings reactions. A breakout above $128.50 would see first resistance at $130.31 and then at $132.99 and $133.97. The latter is a prior pivot high. If the news disappoints, it isn't likely that shares would reach the low of the range unless the news was an extreme disappointment. First support of significance would be at $124.10 and then at $122.16 and $120.29.
13:31 EDTBABoeing invests over $1B in Everett site
Boeing announced the groundbreaking of its new 777X Composite Wing Center at the Everett, Washington campus. Permitting for the new 1M-square-foot facility was completed approximately seven weeks earlier than anticipated, allowing for an accelerated start to construction. Boeing is investing more than $1B in the Everett site for construction and outfitting of the new building. Completion of the new building, which is expected in May 2016, will require approximately 3.5M hours of work. At its peak, there will be approximately 1.2K contract employees working on the project. First delivery of the 777X is targeted for 2020.

10:27 EDTHONDuPont aims to defend itself 'vigorously' against EC investigation
DuPont (DD) Chemicals & Fluoroproducts president Thierry Vanlancker commented on the European Commission's Statement of Objections. Vanlancker said, "DuPont has complied at all times with applicable laws in its development and commercialization of HFO-1234yf, and we plan to defend vigorously against the commission's allegations and preliminary conclusions. This is one step in a long process, and while it may take years to be resolved, we are confident that the Commission will ultimately conclude that actions taken by DuPont complied with applicable laws. We will fight this every step of the way, as it has no basis in law or fact. We are disappointed in the European Commission and in the process leading up to this point. DuPont and Honeywell (HON)developed HFO-1234yf jointly in response to the European Union's Mobile Air Conditioning Directive. This regulation requires automakers to use a refrigerant with very low global warming potential for vehicle air-conditioning systems. The regulatory timeframe was short considering the significant challenges of developing and commercializing a refrigerant that meets all the automotive industry's needs. This short timeframe was a primary reason for DuPont and Honeywell working jointly to develop HFO-1234yf. Regardless of the Statement, the EU MAC Directive remains in full force today, with all new vehicles required to use a refrigerant with a GWP of under 150 by January 2017."
