16:19 EDTILMN, FIO, FET, AVID, MIPS, OAK, RHHBY, CSCO, MRC, HPQOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street rose significantly on indications from the New York Fed that interest rates will likely remain low. Stock futures were slightly above fair value in early trading but weakened following the slightly disappointing jobless claims data. The futures action led to a relatively quiet open for the market but it soon picked up momentum to the upside. The market moved up roughly 0.5% in early trading, then spurted higher before noon. Investors rallied the market after last night’s comments from Fed president Janet Yellen, who said the Fed should be ready to ease its fiscal stance if the economy weakened while also being willing to raise rates if the economy warranted. Investors grabbed onto the dovish comments and lifted the market for the second day in a row… ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., 380K initial jobless claims were filed last week, versus the expected 355K. 3.25M continuing claims were reported, versus the expected 3.33M. Producer prices for the month of March were flat, versus the expected increase of 0.3%. The core PPI reading, however, rose 0.3%, versus the expected increase of 0.2%. The trade balance report showed a deficit of $46.0B, versus expectations for a deficit of $51B. In Europe, Italy's short-term borrowing costs rose at auction... COMPANY NEWS: Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) was a beneficiary of two reports from Gartner and IDC, each of which showed that global shipments of personal computers rose in Q1, with HP remaining the top PC maker by volume. On the day, Hewlett-Packard stock was up 7.18% to $25.09… Oaktree Capital (OAK), Forum Energy Technologies (FET) and MRC Global (MRC) all traded for the first time today, though none of the companies' stocks moved much compared to their IPO prices... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were MIPS Technologies (MIPS), which jumped 26.30%, to $6.58, after Bloomberg reported that Goldman Sachs (GS) had been hired to advise it on a possible sale of the company, and Fusion-io (FIO), which rose 14.80%, to $28.31, following a note to investors from Piper Jaffray saying it believes the company is working on a new original equipment manufacturer deal with Cisco (CSCO)… Noteworthy losers included Avid Technology (AVID), which lost 17.32%, to $8.50, after the company announced it expects to post Q1 revenues lower than last year, and Illumina (ILMN), which dropped 5.82%, to $49.51, after Roche Holding’s (RHHBY) CEO said he doesn’t see any reason to raise the current offer for the company… INDICES: The Dow gained 181.19 points, or 1.41%, to 12,986.58; the Nasdaq rose 39.09 points, or 1.30%, to 3,055.55; and the S&P 500 added 18.86 points, or 1.38%, to 1,387.57.

11:55 EDTCSCOCisco November weekly 25 straddle priced for 4.4% move into Q1
11:51 EDTCSCOCisco technical comments before earnings
The stock has underperformed the broader averages in the past three months, falling over 1%. That lower performance would have been far worse if not for the recent uptrend off the mid-October lows. That rally helped to overcome the otherwise bearish head and shoulders that had developed on the daily chart and had completed at mid-October. In a long view, the current price action appears to put the shares either at a double top, or poised for a breakout that would results in four-year highs or more. The key level is at $26, not far from where the stock is currently trading. On better news or guidance, a move above $26 would seem highly probable and that would constitute a technical bullish breakout. Next resistance would be at $27.74 and then at $28.40. If the news is not as bullish as current price action suggests, the recent uptrend would probably be broken. It would only take a move below $24.50 for that to happen. Additional downside objectives might be at the following supports at $23.76, $22.43 and $21.94. A move down to or below $22 would confirm a major top was in place, which would have long-term bearish implications for price.
