06:32 EDTGRPNBlue Calypso files motion to lift stay in patent infringement cases and appeal
Blue Calypso (BCYP) announced that it has filed a motion in the Eastern District of Texas to lift the negotiated stay on the pending patent infringement litigation between the Company and Groupon (GRPN), Yelp (YELP), Foursquare and IZEA.PK. The Company has also filed notices of appeal at the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals in each of the Covered Business Method Review cases at the Patent Trial and Appeals Board. On January 14, 2014, the parties agreed to stay the litigation in the Eastern District pending the decisions from the PTAB as to validity of the patents. As a part of agreeing to join the stay, the parties jointly agreed to ask the Court to lift the stay and for an expedited litigation schedule if any of the asserted claims were held valid by the PTAB. The PTAB now has confirmed the validity of twenty-eight claims and Blue Calypso, through its counsel, has asked the Court to lift the stay according to the agreement. The defendants refused to participate in the motion to lift the stay as previously agreed, and have instead asked the Court to leave the stay in place in a separate motion.

12:24 EDTACTGOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday, as details of a reported bond buying program planned by the ECB offset weakness in the Dow after IBM's (IBM) earnings report. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts rose 4.4% in December to a 1.89M rate, versus expectations for an increase of 1.2%, while building permits fell 1.9% to a rate of 1.03M, versus expectations of an increase of 0.8%. The Bank of Canada lowered its target for the overnight rate by one-quarter of one percentage point to 0.75% in response to the recent sharp drop in oil prices, which it said will be negative for growth and underlying inflation in Canada. Reports indicated that a proposal from the European Central Bankís executive board is calling for it to begin making bond purchases of about EUR 50B per month and continue that easing program for at least one year. In Asia, the Bank of Japan refrained from expanding its stimulus program, although it expanded and extended its loan programs aimed at boosting bank lending. Also, the BoJ cut next fiscal year's CPI forecast to 1.0% from the 1.7% it had projected three months ago. COMPANY NEWS: Last night, IBM reported better than expected Q4 earnings, though its revenue and FY15 profit outlook trailed estimates, sending the stock down over 3% this morning. Citigroup cut its price target for IBM shares to $170 from $180 after reducing its sales and earnings estimates following the tech giant's Q4 results. Citi reiterated a Neutral rating on IBM, saying it wants to see stability in fundamentals and free cash flow growth before getting more positive on the name. Meanwhile, Jefferies said IBM's cash flow guidance for 2015 is "very weak" and that the company has yet to reach a bottom. The firm continues to believe the risk/reward for shares is skewed negatively and it kept an Underperform on IBM with a $130 price target following the company's Q4 results... Netflix (NFLX) jumped 17% to trade near $409 per share after the company reported stronger than expected fourth quarter results and a number of research firms raised their price targets for the stock while pointing out the company's global subscriber growth had exceeded expectations. Bucking the trend, FBR Capital analyst Barton Crockett said Netflix's EPS would only have been in-line with the consensus outlook if non-operating items were excluded. He said he is less impressed with Netflix following its report and trimmed his price target on the stock to $400 from $425 while keeping a Neutral rating on the shares. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were Northern Trust (NTRS), which rose 6%, and U.S. Bancorp (USB), which gained 3.5%. Among the noteworthy losers was Eldorado Gold (EGO), which dropped 19% after the company reported on its 2014 gold production, gave guidance on production in 2015, and its shares were downgraded at Credit Suisse, TD Securities and Canccord. Also lower was Acacia Research (ACTG), which fell more than 14% after a court granted a motion finding no infringement of certain method claims asserted by the company's Adaptix subsidiary against Apple(AAPL), Verizon (VZ), AT&T (T), and HTC. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 42.03, or 0.24%, to 17,557.26, the Nasdaq was up 27.36, or 0.59%, to 4,682.21, and the S&P 500 was up 12.25, or 0.61%, to 2,034.80.
