17:04 EDTMSOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Monday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher for the day, beginning the session sharply higher and remaining in positive territory throughout. China’s central bank announced a reduction in bank reserve requirements in an effort to increase liquidity and spur economic growth within the country. Following the open, the market moved in a relatively narrow range as investors await the latest round of earnings reports for one of the season's heavier weeks. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed National Activity Index came in at 0.42 versus expectations for positive 0.1. In Asia, the People's Bank of China lowered its reserve requirement ratio, by 1 percentage point, the lowest since the financial crisis. Despite this, the Shanghai Composite Index fell 1.6% because regulators had already begun curbing speculative trading on Friday. COMPANY NEWS: Morgan Stanley (MS) advanced 0.57%, or 21c, to $36.96 after reporting earnings prior to the market open. The bank beat on both EPS and revenue, and also raised its dividend to 15c from 10c. CEO James Gorman was pleased with the quarter and cited growth across the majority of the company's operations. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Hasbro (HAS), which rose 12.55% to end the session at $74.16 after reporting EPS and revenue in excess of analyst expectations. During its earnings conference call, the company appeared confident on its 2015 offerings which include Disney (DIS) Princess and Frozen product lines. Also higher was Rovi (ROVI), gaining 8.64% to close the day at $19.11 after renewing its licensing and program guide agreement with Charter (CHTR). Among the noteworthy losers was Caesars Entertainment (CZR), tumbling 17.01% to $10 after failing to reach an agreement on its restructuring. Also lower were a number of medical companies involved in the development of CAR-T cancer therapies, including Kite Pharma (KITE), Juno Therapeutics (JUNO), blue bird bio (BLUE), and ZIOPHARM Oncology (ZIOP). The drop followed disappointing, small-scale studies presented during the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research. INDEXES: The Dow rose 208.63, or 1.17%, to 18,034.93, the Nasdaq advanced 62.79, or 1.27%, to 4,994.6, and the S&P 500 gained 19.22, or 0.92%, to 2,100.4.

12:31 EDTMSOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after China’s central bank relaxed reserve requirements for its banks. The nation's own stock market struggled to overcome the cross current of other actions taken to cut down on speculative trading there, but U.S. stock markets surged at the open and had not looked back by midday. The domestic economic calendar has quiet and earnings continue to be the focal point at home, as a great number of S&P 500 companies prepare to report this week. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed National Activity Index had a reading of -0.42, versus expectations for a +0.10 reading. A reading below zero represents economic activity below trend. In China, the People's Bank of China cut the reserve-requirement ratio, or the amount of reserves lenders need to hold, by 1 full percentage point, which was the biggest cut since the depths of the financial crisis and more than expected by economists. However, the Shanghai Composite Index still dropped 1.6%, since the reserve-requirement cut came after regulators had moved to curb speculative trading with actions taken Friday. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Morgan Stanley (MS) advanced 1% after the bank's headline earnings excluding certain adjustments and tax benefits beat expectations. CEO James Gorman noted that the first quarter of the year was the bank's "strongest quarter in many years with improved performance across most areas of the firm." Morgan Stanley also increased its quarterly dividend to 15c per share from 10c per share. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Hasbro (HAS), which gained 10% after the toymaker's sales and profits widely topped expectations in its fiscal first quarter. Also higher was Rovi (ROVI), which gained more than 10% after the company announced it has renewed its patent license and interactive program guide product agreement with Charter Communications (CHTR). Among the noteworthy losers was FARO Technologies (FARO), which dropped 25% and was downgraded by Noble Financial and Needham after the preannounced lower than expected first quarter revenue. Also lower were a number of companies that are developing CAR-T cancer therapies following the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research. Mizuho analyst Peter Lawson attributed the pullback to disappointment in this weekend's solid tumor data on a small number of patients with advanced cancers who were given CAR-T therapy developed by Novartis (NVS) and the University of Pennsylvania. Shares of Kite Pharma (KITE), Juno Therapeutics (JUNO), blue bird bio (BLUE), and ZIOPHARM Oncology (ZIOP) were all lower near noon. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 236.19, or 1.32%, to 18,062.49, the Nasdaq was up 59.54, or 1.21%, to 4,991.35, and the S&P 500 was up 21.82, or 1.05%, to 2,103.00.

13:43 EDTMSEarnings Watch: Morgan Stanley to report after CFO departs
Morgan Stanley (MS) is scheduled to report first quarter earnings before the open on Monday, April 20, with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. Morgan Stanley is an investment bank. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 78c on revenue of $9.17B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 72c-86c on revenue of $8.87B-$9.55B. LAST QUARTER: Morgan Stanley reported weaker than expected fourth quarter results. The company said that its results were adversely affected by "choppy market conditions," although it characterized the results as strong. On February 25, the bank agreed to pay $3.6B to the U.S. to settle claims related to residential mortgage-backed securities. On March 11, Morgan Stanley announced that it would repurchase $3.1B of its shares and raise its dividend to 15c per share from 10c per share. On March 24, the bank announced that its CFO, Ruth Porat, would resign to take a similar position at Google (GOOG). Morgan Stanley announced that it had chosen Jonathan Pruzan, the co-head of its Global Financial Institutions Group in Investment Banking, to succeed Porat. STREET RESEARCH: Two research firms were divided on the outlook for Morgan Stanley's Q1 results. On March 16, well-known analyst Dick Bove of Rafferty Capital wrote that the bank's Q1 results were not looking strong. Trade data from the Federal Reserve suggested that Morgan Stanley was losing ground in several key categories, with trading flat to down overall and investment banking not faring much better. However, Bove continued to identify the bank as one of his top picks for 2015. However, Susquehanna on April 7 raised its estimates for Morgan Stanley, citing a stronger fixed income performance, driven by rate and currency volatility. Morgan Stanley's Q1 results should improve nicely versus its Q4 performance, added the firm, which nonetheless reiterated a Neutral rating on the stock. PEER RESULTS: Goldman Sachs (GS) reported stronger than expected Q1 results, as its investment banking revenue rose 7% versus the same period a year earlier and its institutional client services revenue surged 23% year-over-year. JPMorgan (JPM) reported on Monday that its Q1 gross investment banking revenue from its commercial banking clients had soared 68%. PRICE ACTION: Morgan Stanley's stock is up 5% over the last three months and up over 10% over the last six months.

14:58 EDTCEarnings Watch: Analysts more bullish on Citi after asset sales, CCAR approval
Citigroup (C), one of the largest banks in the U.S., is expected to report first quarter earnings before the open on Thursday, April 16, with a conference call scheduled for 11:00 am ET. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.39 on revenue of $19.82B. The consensus range is $1.32-$1.45 for EPS on revenue of $18.43B-$20.36B, according to First Call. On its last earnings conference call, Citi said it was committed to its 2015 targets and to returning capital to shareholders. Citi is targeting a 2015 consumer banking efficiency ratio of 49%-52%, compared to a ratio of 56% in 2014 and a pro forma 2014 ratio of 55%. LAST QUARTER: Citigroup reported fourth quarter EPS of 6c, versus analysts' consensus forecast of 11c. The company’s revenue came in below expectations at 17.81B. Citi CEO Michael Corbat said at the time: "While the overall results for 2014 fell short of our expectations, we did make significant progress on our top priorities... Although we made some difficult decisions over the course of the year, I believe they allowed us to put our franchise in a position to have a successful 2015." NEWS: On March 2, Costco (COST) announced it has entered into a new co-brand credit card program agreement with Citi and an acceptance and co-brand incentive agreement with Visa (V). Under the terms of the agreements, Citi would become the exclusive issuer of Costco's co-brand credit cards and Visa will replace American Express as the credit card network for Costco in the U.S. and Puerto Rico beginning April 1, 2016. The next day, Citi announced that it has reached a definitive agreement to sell OneMain Financial Holdings to Springleaf (LEAF) for a purchase price of $4.25B. The deal is expected to close in the third quarter of 2015, subject to approvals and other customary conditions. The sale, along with retirement of related funding, are expected to result in a net addition to earnings before income taxes of approximately $1B, the bank stated. On March 5, the Federal Reserve said that Citi had passed its Dodd-Frank stress test, as did all 31 banks that were examined. About a week later, the central bank announced it had not objected to the capital plans of 28 bank holding companies participating in the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review, or CCAR. After the Fed advised Citi that it has no objection to the planned capital actions requested by the bank, Citi said it will increase its quarterly common stock dividend to 5c per share from 1c per share. Citi also announced plans for a common stock repurchase program of up to $7.8B during the five quarters starting in the Q2. At the end of March, Citi announced that it has reached a definitive agreement to sell 100% of the shares of Citi Cards Japan, the exclusive issuer of Diners Club cards in Japan, to Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank. Also in March, Citi announced that it has sold 396M common shares in Akbank T.A.S. through an equity offering representing its entire 9.9% equity interest in the company. Total proceeds from the transaction are expected to be approximately $1.15B at then current exchange rates. The financial terms of those two transactions are not material to Citi, the bank noted. STREET RESEARCH: On February 10, Deutsche Bank upgraded Citi to Buy from Hold and raised its price target for shares to $54 from $51. Deutsche said then that it believed the decline in the stock since the firm's December 4 downgrade had priced in some of the earnings risk, but added the FY15 consensus estimates for Citi still looked too high. On March 17, Deutsche Bank further raised its price target for Citi shares to $56 from $54, citing positive news flow around the sale of OneMain, its credit card deal with Costco and the Fed's stress test results. On March 3, JPMorgan upgraded Citigroup to Overweight, saying the Costco co-branding credit card deal will add to revenue growth and return on assets. Further, the firm said it expects the banking giant to achieve its operating efficiency targets this year. It upped its price target for shares to $58 from $54. The next day, Morgan Stanley said it believes Citi's sale of OneMain and its new Costco partnership imply, when taken together, that the bank is substituting OneMain's higher risk assets with the Costco portfolio, which has a lower yield, risk and RWA. Such a trade will be viewed favorably by regulators, the firm said. Morgan Stanley, which has an Overweight rating on Citi, said then it sees potential upside to its $60 price target on Citi shares if capital freed from the OneMain sale is returned to shareholders. PRICE ACTION: In afternoon trading ahead of tomorrow morning's report, Citi rose over 1% to $53.31. Over the last three months, Citi shares are up nearly 13%.
14:42 EDTGSEarnings Watch: Goldman to report amid optimism on fixed income, trading

LAST QUARTER: Goldman reported higher than expected fourth quarter profits and revenue. However, the revenue of its investment banking and institutional client services businesses fell 16% and 8% respectively versus the same period a year earlier, while the revenue of its fixed income business tumbled 19% year-over-year. In March, Goldman passed the Fed's stress test, and it raised its quarterly dividend by 5c to 65c per share. In April, Reuters reported that Global investment banking fees dropped 8% to $20B in the first quarter, representing the weakest start to the year for the fees since 2012, according to Reuters. Deal activity in Europe, Asia Pacific, and Japan was weak during the quarter, the news service stated. On a positive note for Goldman investors, The Wall Street Journal on April 2 quoted NAB Research and Deutsche Bank as saying that volatility in the currency market had risen 18% from January to mid-March, which should boost profitability for the fixed-income trading businesses at major banks. PEER RESULTS: Perhaps boding well for Goldman, JPMorgan reported on Monday that its Q1 gross investment banking revenue from its commercial banking clients had soared 68%, STREET RESEARCH: On April 7, research firm Susquehanna raised its Q1 EPS estimate for Goldman to $4.24 from $3.60, citing improved trading and fixed income forecasts. The firm increased its price target on the shares to $198 from $190 and set a Neutral rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: Goldman's stock has jumped almost 13% over the last three months and almost 30% over the last year.

“Continuing the trend from last quarter, we saw core loan and deposit growth, higher mortgage originations, and increased wealth management client balances," said CEO Brian Moynihan. “We retained a top position in investment banking as our team generated the highest advisory fees since the Merrill Lynch merger. We see continued encouraging signs in customer and client activity, with consumer spending increasing and utilization of credit by our commercial customers rising. This should bode well for the near-term economic outlook. At a time of continued low interest rates, we had good expense control as we focus on responsible growth with a balanced platform to create long-term value for customers and shareholders.” "We continued to strengthen an already strong and liquid balance sheet this quarter," said CFO Bruce Thompson. "We improved our liquidity, accreted capital and tightly managed expenses in a challenging interest rate environment. Meanwhile, credit quality remained strong, reflecting both the economic environment and our risk underwriting."

16:53 EDTWFC, JPMOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Tuesday
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed for the day, beginning the session in positive territory helped by better than expected earnings reports from JPMorgan (JPM), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), and Wells Fargo (WFC). The early economic data was slightly below Wall Street expectations and became a headwind for the market. By the end of the first hour of trading the market had turned negative, and it spent the remainder of the day trading in mixed fashion. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail purchases for March advanced 0.9%, bouncing up from a 0.5% decline in February. However, economists had predicted a 1.1% growth after improvements on last month's weather. The producer price index grew 0.2% for March, in line with consensus estimates. Core PPI grew 0.2% versus expectations of 0.1% growth. The International Monetary Fund's World Economic Outlook Report trimmed U.S. growth forecast to 3.1% from its previous outlook of 3.6%, while global forecast was left unchanged at 3.5%. COMPANY NEWS: Avon (AVP) surged 66c, or 8.24%, to $8.67 following a Wall Street Journal report that the company is exploring strategic alternatives, including potentially selling its North American business, though a Bloomberg report later in the day claimed the company is not conducting a formal sale process... Nokia (NOK) confirmed it is in "advanced discussions" to buy French telecom firm Alcatel-Lucent (ALU), prompting French President Francois Hollande to schedule meetings with leaders from both companies. Later in the day, the French government announced it supports the potential deal, with French Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron stating Nokia reassured officials by detailing "clear undertakings." Nokia fell 34c, or 4.1%, to $7.96 at the close, while Alcatel jumped 58c, or 13.33%, to $4.93. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was 58.com (WUBA), which rallied 33.52%, or $17.04, to $67.87 after the Financial Times reported the company has signed a memorandum of understanding to merge with rival classifieds service Ganji.com. Also higher was PartnerRe (PRE), which advanced 8.49% to $129.25 after EXOR proposed to acquire the company for $130.00 per share in cash, valuing PartnerRe at $6.4B. Following earnings, JPMorgan (JPM) advanced 1.56% to $63.04 after beating expectations, while Wells Fargo (WFC) fell 0.73% and Johnson & Johnson fell 0.03% after reducing its FY15 earnings guidance. Among the noteworthy losers was Arrowhead Research (ARWR), which tumbled 7.75% after Jefferies downgraded the stock to Hold and lowered its price target to $9 from $30. The firm said that while ARC-520 offers the potential for a Hepatitis B virus functional cure, it prefers to wait for multi-dosing data. Also lower was Norfolk Southern (NSC), which dropped 4.18% to $100.49 and was downgraded to Hold at TD Securities following first quarter guidance that fell below expectations. INDEXES: The Dow rose 59.66, or 0.33%, to 18,036.70, the Nasdaq lost 10.96, or 0.22%%, to 4,977.29, and the S&P 500 advanced 3.41, or 0.16%, to 2,095.84.

14:36 EDTBACBank of America technical comments ahead of earnings
The stock is trading up to resistance at the 50-day moving average, last at $15.95. Since November 2013, the stock has been trading in a range bound largely by $15 at the low and $18 at the high. A break of either end of the range would help guide where shares might trade thereafter. Failing news that is sufficiently bullish or bearish, we could expect the stock to trade in the same range until another catalyst emerges. On better news, resistance above current levels would be at $16.62, $17.22, and then at $18. If the news is more bearish than expected, a breakdown below $15 might be probable. In that event next support levels below $15 as downside objectives would be at $14.37 which is the 52-week low and then at $13.49 and $12.80.

12:24 EDTJPM, WFCOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday despite better than expected headline earnings from JPMorgan (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC) and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ). The market began the session in positive territory on the heels of those solid earnings reports, but the averages were unable to hold their early gains as the retail sales figures released during the pre-market trading session missed expectations. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail purchases grew 0.9% in March, rebounding from a 0.5% decline in February. However, economists were expecting a more pronounced 1.1% advance in recovery from the prior month's weather driven weakness. The producer price index rose 0.2% in March, matching expectations. The core PPI, which excludes food and energy, grew 0.2% as well, versus expectations for it to have risen 0.1%. Business Inventories grew 0.3% in February, versus expectations for them to be up 0.2%. The International Monetary Fund, in its latest World Economic Outlook Report, trimmed its U.S. growth forecast to a 3.1% pace from its prior 3.6% view, but left its global forecast intact at a 3.5% rate. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of JPMorgan advanced 1.5% after its headline earnings per share topped expectations, even before accounting for 13c per share in aftertax legal expense that the bank identified as a "significant item." Conversely, fellow large bank Wells Fargo (WFC) slid 1.5% after its own report on first quarter results, despite the fact that its earnings and revenue both topped the consensus forecast... Shares of Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) were fractionally higher at midday after its first quarter earnings and revenue beat expectations. The multinational company, however, lowered its FY15 adjusted earnings outlook, citing further negative foreign currency movements... Nokia (NOK) and Alcatel-Lucent (ALU), in response to "recent media speculation," confirmed that they are in advanced discussions with respect to a potential full combination, which would take the form of a public exchange offer by Nokia for Alcatel. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was 58.com (WUBA), which jumped 25% after Financial Times reported the company has signed a memorandum of understanding to merge with peer Ganji.com to create one of the largest specialized online classified companies in China. Also higher was PartnerRe (PRE), which advanced nearly 9% to trade near $129.50 after Europe based investment company EXOR announced that it submitted a written proposal to acquire 100% of the common shares of the company for $130.00 per share in cash, valuing PartnerRe at $6.4B. EXOR said its all-cash proposal represents a 16% premium to the implied value per share of $112.53 for PartnerRe under the merger deal it has in place with AXIS Capital (AXS). Among the noteworthy losers was Arrowhead Research (ARWR), which tumbled over 6% after Jefferies downgraded the stock to Hold and cut its price target for shares to $9 from $30 after assuming coverage of the stock. The firm said that while ARC-520 offers the potential for a Hepatitis B virus functional cure, it prefers to wait for multi-dosing data. Also lower was Norfolk Southern (NSC), which fell nearly 6% and was downgraded to Hold from Buy at TD Securities after the railroad operator provided first quarter guidance that came in below analysts' consensus estimates. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 53.15, or 0.3%, to 18,030.19, the Nasdaq was down 16.19, or 0.32%, to 4,972.06, and the S&P 500 was up 2.20, or 0.11%, to 2,094.63.

The shares are trading close to the 52-week high which is at $63.49. On strongly positive news, the stock would be pushed toward the life high at $67.17. That would be an important technical milestone if it was reached. Traders should note however that that move would on a long-term basis appear as a move up to prior resistance without being a bullish breakout. Until or if there is a breakout above the old life high, there is retracement risk even on good results. On news that is more bearish than current expectations would suggest, first major support would be at the 50-day moving average at $60.10. On a move below that level, next support would be at $57.87.
