16:56 EDTTSLA, FDX, SCTY, NKE, FSLR, GMStocks close the week higher, Fed continues taper
Stocks on Wall Street finished the week higher after tensions appeared to ease somewhat regarding the situation in Ukraine, as the Federal Reserve announced it would taper its monthly rate of asset purchases by another $10B. MACRO NEWS: The Federal Reserve further reduced its pace of asset purchases by $10B per month, as it did at its previous two meetings, while also keeping benchmark interest rates between 0%-0.25%. In her first press conference as Fed Chair on Wednesday afternoon, Janet Yellen suggested that the Fed could begin to increase interest rates six months after it concludes asset purchases, which spooked markets and sent the indexes to their worst daily performance of the week... Earlier this week, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Russia had no intention of invading other parts of Ukraine following its annexation of Crimea, which aided in the indexes enjoying something of a relief rally early in the week... U.S. economic data reported this week, including industrial production and weekly jobless claims for February, came in better than expected. COMPANY NEWS: General Motors (GM) started the week with an announcement of new recalls involving about 1.5M vehicles, which would result in a $300M charge in the carmaker's first quarter. Despite the negative headlines, shares of GM closed the week up about 2.5% to close at $35.01... Two solar names, First Solar (FSLR) and Solar City (SCTY), saw shares go in different directions for the week. First Solar gave profit and sales outlooks for its fiscal years 2014 through 2016 at an analyst day presentation, and shares of the company finished the week up more than 30% to $73.37. Solar City, which is chaired by Tesla Motors (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk, saw its shares tumble after its first quarter outlook disappointed and the company said certain of its prior financial statement should no longer be relied upon... Dow member Nike (NKE) reported earnings that beat on both the top and bottom lines, but the athletic footwear and apparel maker said the devaluation in some emerging market currencies is likely to impact its reported sales, gross margin, and profit in its fiscal 2015, and shares of the company fell about 5% following the news. FedEx (FDX) also reported earnings earlier this week, with the shipping major's third quarter results missing analysts' expectations as the company said severe winter weather impacted results. INDEXES: The Dow was up 1.5% to 16,302.77, the S&P 500 was up 0.8% to 1,866.52, and the Nasdaq was up 1.4% to 4,276.79.

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.
