12:54 EDTGM, HPQ, WNR, HFC, MPC, HIG, LNC, GNW, AFL, MET, DAL, STXRanking The Barron's 500 by P/E could show what stocks are inexpensive
Companies in the Barron's 500 are ranked by Credit Suisse's HOLT on the basis of changes in sales and return on cash flow. Seeking to gauge the prospects for their stocks, Barron's asked FactSet to re-rank the companies by their price/earnings ratios, based on profit estimates for the current fiscal year. A low P/E is often a simple way to tell that a company is out of favor with investors. Thus, it is a metric beloved by value investors, who often profit by heading in the opposite direction from the crowd. Out-of-favor stocks, including General Motors (GM) and Delta Air Lines (DAL), with their mid-single-digit P/Es, just might beckon such investors, Barron's contends. The periodicalsí list of the 30 stocks with the lowest P/Es also has a fair concentration of insurance names, including No. 9-ranked MetLife (MET), Aflac (AFL), Genworth Financial (GNW), Lincoln National (LNC) and Hartford Financial Services (HIG). Oil refiners also are well represented, with Marathon Petroleum (MPC), HollyFrontier (HFC), and Western Refining (WNR) sporting cheap stocks. Investors fear profits will decline if oil prices fall. In tech, Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) isn't the cheapest tech stock on our list; that dubious distinction goes to Seagate Technology (STX). Reference Link

11:54 EDTHPQHP technical comments before earnings
In the prior three months the shares have outperformed the broader averages, rising by more than 8%. The trend has had a decidedly bullish slant, with $36 at the high and $33 at the low. These bounds give us some guidance as to how price might behave depending on earnings and guidance. A breakout above $36 and notably the 52-week high at $36.21, would appear very probable if the news is better than already high expectations. Next major resistance would be at $38, a level not seen since early 2011. An extreme upside reaction could push the stock to $40.34. Given the strong bullish sentiment in the name, the risk may be more to the downside on a disappointment. The key level to watch on the downside if news or guidance is worse than expected is at the 50-day moving average, last at $34.57. A breakdown below the 50-day would break the intermediate-term uptrend and that would have bearish implications for future price. The $33 level would become the next important zone following such a break. A snap below $33 on an extreme disappointment would see $31.48 as next support.

09:41 EDTGMGM recalls Silverados, Sierras equipped with auxiliary battery
GM is recalling certain model year 2007-2011 Chevrolet Silverado HD 2500/3500 trucks manufactured January 18, 2007, to June 22, 2011, and GMC Sierra HD 2500/3500 trucks manufactured January 22, 2007, to June 21, 2011, and equipped with an auxiliary battery. Owners may unknowingly draw too much current through the vehicle's trailer harness resulting in the melting of fusible link for the auxiliary battery. If the fusible link melts it may come into contact with adjacent components, damage the electrical center cover, the nearby wiring harness conduit and other vehicle components, increasing the risk of a fire. GM will notify owners and dealers will replace the jumper harness with one that includes a 40 amp inline fuse, and provide the owner with supplemental Owner Manual information, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Reference Link

08:42 EDTHPQImperva new CEO has history of selling companies, says Sterne Agee
After Imperva (IMPV) appointed Anthony Bettencourt as its new CEO, Sterne Agee says that he has a history of selling companies. The firm believes that Imperva "would likely be an acquisition candidate" for a number of large tech companies such as Cisco (CSC), Juniper (JNPR), HP (HPQ), IBM (IBM), Check Point (CHKP), or F5 (FFIV). Sterne Agee believes that Imperva could be acquired for as much as $45 per share, and it keeps a Buy rating on the stock.
08:19 EDTDALFAA issues NOTAM restricting U.S. operations from flying over Syria
The Federal Aviation Administration issued a new Notice To Airmen restricting U.S. operators from flying in the Damascus Flight Information Region, which includes all of Syria. The FAA said, "This replaces the current NOTAM in place that strongly advises U.S. operators against flying in that airspace and requires them to contact the FAA before they operate in that airspace. Based on an updated assessment of the risk associated with such operations and the lack of any requests from operators wishing to fly in this airspace, we believe it prudent to prohibit U.S. operators from flying into, out of, and over Syria. The ongoing armed conflict and volatile security environment in Syria poses a serious potential threat to civil aviation. Armed extremist groups in Syria are known to be equipped with a variety of anti-aircraft weapons which have the capability to threaten civilian aircraft. Opposition groups have successfully shot down Syrian military aircraft using these anti-aircraft weapon systems during the course of the conflict. Opposition elements have previously warned civilian air carriers against providing service to Syria. Due to the presence of anti-aircraft weapons among the extremist groups and ongoing fighting in various locations throughout Syria, there is a continuing significant potential threat to civil aviation operating in Syrian airspace." Publicly traded companies in the airline industry include American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), JetBlue (JBLU), Southwest (LUV) and United Continental (UAL).
