11:27 EDTDTVJDSU falls after outlook disappoints, analyst downgrades
Shares of JDSU (JDSU), a provider of equipment to telecommunications service providers, are sharply lower after the company's fourth quarter results and first quarter guidance were reported last night. Following the report, the stock was downgraded this morning at two Street research firms. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, JDSU reported fourth quarter adjusted earnings of 14c per share, beating the consensus forecast by 1c, on revenue of $448.6M, which topped the consensus $436.8M view. However, JDSU expects revenue to be $405M-$425M in its first quarter and sees Q1 EPS of 8c-12c, which fell short of consensus of about $441M and 14c, respectively. JDSU's President and CEO Tom Waechter said, "Looking ahead to fiscal 2015, we believe there are strong market drivers across our three business segments, and that we are well positioned with differentiated products and solutions to support our customers as they transition to Software Defined Networks, Network Function Virtualization and more dependency on cloud infrastructure. We continue to lead in our core network and anti-counterfeiting markets and I am pleased with the momentum we are building in our commercial lasers business on the strength of our highly differentiated fiber laser product line." ANALYST OPINION: Following the company's report, B. Riley analyst Dave Kang cut his rating on JDSU shares to Neutral from a Buy rating, citing near-term uncertainties in the North American telecom market. Kang pointed to two events contributing to that uncertainty, namely an architectural shift to SDN, or Software Defined Networking, and AT&T's (T) planned merger with DirecTV (DTV). The analyst acknowledged previously underestimating the potential impact of the SDN shift on the telecom equipment industry and noted that appears to be impacting JDSU's NSE business more than its optical component unit. Kang prefers Finisar (FNSR) over JDSU given the current environment, noting that about 70% of Finisar's sales come from the datacom sector. Kang lowered his price target on JDS Uniphase shares to $11.75 from $15.50. Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen also downgraded JDSU following its report, lowering his rating on the stock to Neutral from Overweight. Jensen also said the company's worse than expected guidance indicates softer Telco spending and he believes JDSU will have trouble showing significant revenue acceleration even if the optical upgrade cycle starts to ramp up. Piper lowered its price target on the stock to $12 from $14. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other providers of telecom equipment include Ciena (CIEN) and Infinera (INFN). PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, shares of JDSU fell $1.12, or 9.4%, to $10.78. Meanwhile, shares of Finisar were down nearly 2% to $19.58, Ciena slipped 1.5% to $18.92 and Infinera was fractionally higher at $9.09.

12:25 EDTGOGOOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in positive territory and have remained there throughout the morning. There was little in the way of a catalyst, as the economic calendar was empty, though investors may have been encouraged that there was no breakdown in the ceasefire agreement between Israel and Gaza and no big headlines from the Russia/Ukraine border. Additionally, some may have viewed comments from Fed Vice Chair Fischer as dovish and in support of continued easing. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no significant economic data was released. In prepared comments for a conference, Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said rebounds across advanced economies have been disappointing, leading the Fed and other observers to lower their long-term expectations for growth potential in the U.S. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Kinder Morgan (KMI) advanced 10% after announcing it will consolidate its oil-and-gas holdings into one company by acquiring all of the outstanding shares of a number of its subsidiaries, including Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP), Kinder Morgan Management (KMR) and El Paso Pipeline Partners (EPB). In addition to the rise in the shares of the parent, Kinder Morgan Energy shares rose 19%, Kinder Morgan Management gained 25% and El Paso Pipeline moved up 22%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was salad and banana producer Chiquita Brands (CQB), which jumped 31% to trade above $13 per share after Cutrale Group and the Safra Group proposed to acquire 100% of the company's outstanding stock for $13 in cash each. Also higher was electric car maker Tesla (TSLA), which rose 5% after Deutsche Bank upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold and raised its price target on the shares to $310 from $220. Among the noteworthy losers was social game maker King Digital (KING), which slid 3% after the stock was downgraded at Pacific Crest to Sector Perform from Outperform. Also lower following their earnings reports were Inovio (INO), which fell over 8%, and Gogo (GOGO), which dropped nearly 6%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 51.25, or 0.31%, to 16,605.18, the Nasdaq was up 38.19, or 0.87%, to 4,409.08, and the S&P 500 was up 10.12, or 0.52%, to 1,941.71.
