12:28 EDTHPQ, GM, JOY, AXAS, PVH, VRAOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks began the session in quiet fashion as they got little help from the day’s economic reports which included the weekly jobless claims data and the monthly Challenger Job Cuts report. The relatively benign numbers lifted the futures above fair value but gave it little momentum once the market opened. The averages drifted in a narrow range and pushed the S&P to a new all-time high. The market may continue to drift this afternoon as investors move to the sidelines ahead of tomorrow’s nonfarm payrolls report. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose slightly, up 8,000 to 312,000, in the week of May 31. The Challenger Job-Cut Report for May came in at 52,961, an increase partially caused by a 16,000 employee layoff at Hewlett-Packard (HPQ). COMPANY NEWS: General Motors (GM) released the results of an internal investigation into the company’s delayed recall of defective ignition switches, with CEO Mary Barra saying the saga was "riddled with failure, leading to tragic results for many." Fifteen employees were fired for misconduct, incompetence or failure to act. MAJOR MOVERS: Joy Global (JOY) is up 6.31% after reporting Q2 earnings results and backing its FY14 guidance. Abraxas Petroleum (AXAS) is up 11.38% after raising its FY14 production guidance last night after the close. Abraxas was also upgraded to Buy from Neutral at SunTrust this morning. PVH Corp (PVH) is down 6.66% after reporting Q1 earnings results and lowering its FY14 EPS view. Vera Bradley (VRA) is down 3.6% after reporting Q1 earnings results and giving Q2 and FY15 guidance that did not meet analyst expectations. INDEXES: The Dow is up 97.10, or 0.58%, to 16,834.63; the Nasdaq is up 37.88, or 0.89%, to 4,289.52; and the S&P 500 is up 11.06, or 0.57%, to 1,938.96.

The company said, "Eurozone growth has improved, but is inconsistent across the region and faces headwinds from weak inflation and the ongoing events in the Ukraine. Chinese growth, while improving to 7.5% during the second quarter, remains largely dependent on stimulus efforts and faces challenges in the housing market. Despite headwinds, global growth is set to improve in 2015 and should drive increased demand for commodities. The U.S. thermal coal market continues to face challenging conditions despite 4 percent economic growth in the U.S. during the second quarter...

14:33 EDTPVHPVH Corp. technical commentary before earnings
In the prior three months the shares have underperformed the indexes, declining by over 10.5%. The trading range has largely been contained with $120 at the high and $110 at the low. Those two bounds can give us some clues as to how price may behave following earnings. If the news is more positive than expected, a test at $120 would be highly probable given the current price of shares at $116.82. Resistance above $120 would be at $123.39, the bottom of the bearish gap from early June, and then at $127.88, which was the top of that gap. If the news is worse than expected, a test down to $110 would be possible. Next support thereafter would be at the 52-week low at $107.05. If the news is bearish enough, a push below that 52-week low would be possible with next support at $103.30, a pivot low from April 2013. Short interest in the stock is low, which could exacerbate the price reaction to negative news.
14:09 EDTJOYJoy Global technical comments ahead of results
In the prior three months the stock has outperformed the indexes, trading up over 7.8%. The trading range in that interval has been volatile, with price bound by $58 at the low at $65 at the high. The high of the range is close to the 52-week high at $65.36. The $65 area has only briefly been broken to the upside in the prior two years. If the news or outlook is more strongly bullish than expected, there could be an opportunity for a price breakout. First resistance of importance in that event would be at the 2-year high at $69.19. Thereafter resistance would be at $72.59, a pivot low from late 2011. If the news is worse than forecast, then the low of the trading range at $58 could be tested. Depending on the degree of disappointment, next supports below would be at $56.81 and $54.83. There is a large short-base in the name at over 15% of the float short, but that is a low relative to the last three months. In the event of strongly bullish news, it could provide fuel for a short-covering rally that could make price reactions stronger than average.

Stocks on Wall Street were higher to begin the day, as reports spurred optimism that a ceasefire agreement between Russia and the Ukraine may soon be reached. The move was short lived, as the averages turned mixed during the second hour of trading. Shares of Apple (AAPL) are weighing down the Nasdaq after an analyst recommended investors take some profits in the stock. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., factory orders rose 10.5% in July, which was a bit below the forecast for 11.0% growth. The Fed's Beige Book is scheduled to be released at 2:00 pm ET. In Europe, the final reading of Eurozone services PMI was knocked down to 53.1 from a preliminary 53.5 reading, mirroring the lowering of the Eurozone manufacturing PMI reading yesterday. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple retreated 4% after research firm Pacific Crest advised investors to take some profits in the stock. Pacific Crest analyst Andy Hargreaves forecast the percentage of new iPhone users who buy the next version of the device beyond the iPhone 6 is likely to decline versus prior cycles. The stock likely has only limited room to increase, according to Hargreaves, who said he would probably downgrade Apple unless new products that can generate billions of dollars in new operating profit are launched at its September 9 event... Carmakers reported on August vehicle sales in the U.S., with Chrysler (FIATY) reporting a 20% increase, Ford stating that sales rose slightly compared to the prior year and General Motors (GM) posting a 1.2% decline in sales. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Infinity Pharmaceuticals (INFI), which jumped 46% after the company announced a cancer drug collaboration with AbbVie (ABBV) and a master clinical supply agreement with Roche (RHHBY). Also higher was Mobileye (MBLY), which gained nearly 10% after Morgan Stanley wrote that the stock could rise "towards $100" if the company maintains its current market, gross margins and earnings position. Mobileye is scheduled to report on its second quarter results tomorrow morning, which will be its first quarterly report since its August IPO. Among the noteworthy losers was Repros Therapeutics (RPRX), which dropped 15% after newly posted FDA briefing documents regarding a panel on T-normalizing therapies prompted Piper Jaffray to downgrade the stock to Neutral from Overweight. Also lower following its earnings report was apparel company Vince Holding (VNCE), which fell 11%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 33.71, or 0.2%, to 17,101.27, the Nasdaq was down 23.24, or 0.51%, to 4,574.95, and the S&P 500 was down 0.64, or 0.03%, to 2,001.64.
