12:24 EDTUSBOn 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.

16:23 EDTMSOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session in positive territory, but the major averages were unable to hold their early gains. Lackluster earnings reports, the falling price of oil, and lowered global growth expectations appeared to be too much to overcome after a three day holiday weekend. The Dow led the way lower and had losses of more than 100 points before reversing and slowly paring its losses. Late in the day the averages made it back to positive ground, as investors await the next round of earnings due out after the close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the NAHB homebuilder sentiment index fell to 57 in January, missing expectations for it to hold steady at 58. In China, Q4 GDP growth of 7.3% came in slightly better than expected, though that puts the nation's 2014 GDP growth at 7.4%, which was the lowest reported in 24 years. Of note, the International Monetary Fund cut its forecast for global growth in 2015 to 3.5% and in 2016 to 3.7%, which were both revised down by 0.3% relative to the organization's October 2014 outlook. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) led all decliners on the Dow Jones Industrial Average with a drop of $2.75, or 2.64%, to $101.29 after its Q4 earnings were nearly in-line and its FY15 outlook failed to spur buying of the stock... Morgan Stanley (MS) declined 14c, or 0.4%, to $34.75 after the firm became the latest in the financial space to report headline earnings that missed expectations. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Smith & Wesson (SWHC), which rose $1.65, or 16.47%, to $11.67 after the gunmaker increased its financial guidance and said it has seen recent, positive trends in the primary indicators it uses to assess its business and the consumer firearm market. Also higher was Orbitz Worldwide (OWW), which jumped 79c, or 8.62%, to $9.95 after Bloomberg reported that the online travel agency is working with an adviser to contact potential buyers and has drawn interest from private-equity funds and "other Internet companies." Among the noteworthy losers was FXCM (FXCM), which plunged $11.03, or 87.33%, to $1.60 after the stock reopened following the company struck a $300M rescue agreement with Leucadia (LUK) and gave further details on that deal over the weekend. Also lower were shares of Redbox owner Outerwall (OUTR), which fell $15.72, or 20.21%, to $62.05 after the company announced that its CEO had stepped down. INDEXES: The Dow rose 3.66, or 0.02%, to 17,515.23, the Nasdaq gained 20.46, or 0.44%, to 4,654.85, and the S&P 500 advanced 3.13, or 0.15%, to 2,022.55.

There is an active bearish head and shoulders pattern on the daily chart that was confirmed on a move below $35.50. Ahead of earnings the question is whether news will halt and reverse the pattern, or accelerate its completion. If the news is as bearish as traders currently expect, the pattern may continue until it reaches completion at the $31 area. If the new is more bullish than the existence of the pattern itself suggests, then a move above $35.50 would neutralize the pattern. Upside objectives to watch would be at $36.13, and $38.09.
