16:36 EDTLMTOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher after a report showed existing homes sales hit their fastest pace in a year during September and Apple (AAPL) gave a better than expected sales forecast for its December quarter. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., existing home sales beat estimates in September, rising 2.4% from the prior month to a 5.17M rate. In China, GDP slowed to 7.3% year-over-year growth pace in Q3 from 7.5% in Q2, though that was slightly better than expected. Chinese industrial production expanded at a 8.0% rate in September, which was well above projections and up from 6.9% growth in August. China's retail sales grew 11.6% in September compared to the prior year, which was nearly in-line with expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple rose $2.71, or 2.72%, to $102.47 after the company reported better than expected quarterly results and gave a better than expected forecast for its sales during the holiday quarter. Following last night's report, analysts at Cantor Fitzgerald said the iPhone maker "executed impressively" in Q4 and provided a strong outlook for Q1. The firm, which believes investors should "start thinking more boldly" about the company, raised its price target for shares to $143 from $123 and kept a Buy rating on the stock... Five of the Dow's 30 members reported on their quarterly results this morning and Coca-Cola (KO) was the clear loser in the bunch. The soda giant's shares dropped $2.61, or 6.03%, to $40.68 after its revenue missed expectations, it warned that it now expects to be below its long-term EPS growth target for 2014, and the company announced new cost-saving measures. Among the other four, McDonald’s (MCD) fell 0.63%, Verizon (VZ) added 0.43%, United Technologies (UTX) gained 0.49%, and Travelers (TRV) rose 1.12%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were medical equipment manufacturer Waters (WAT), which rose $9.63, or 9.87%, to $107.17, and motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson (HOG), which advanced $4.27, or 7.31%, to $62.65. Among the noteworthy losers was Ocwen Financial (OCN), which plunged $4.78, or 18.2%, to $21.48 after the company was called out by the New York Department of Financial Services for erroneously dated letters to borrowers. Benjamin Lawsky, the Superintendent for the NYDFS, stated in his letter to the company that if his department concludes it cannot trust Ocwen's systems and processes, "then it cannot trust Ocwen is complying with the law." Also lower following their earnings reports were Mexican restaurant operator Chipotle (CMG), which fell $45.48, or 6.96%, to $607.55, and defense contractor Lockheed Martin (LMT), which slid $2.92, or 1.66%, to $172.61. INDEXES: The Dow gained 215.14, or 1.31%, to 16,614.81, the Nasdaq advanced 103.40, or 2.4%, to 4,419.48, and the S&P 500 rose 37.27, or 1.96%, to 1,941.28.

14:01 EDTBABoeing technical comments ahead of results
The stock has performed in line with returns from the broader averages over the last three months. The trend has been range bound with the bulk of the range contained at $118 at the low and $128.50 at the high. These two bounds become the defining markers for post-earnings reactions. A breakout above $128.50 would see first resistance at $130.31 and then at $132.99 and $133.97. The latter is a prior pivot high. If the news disappoints, it isn't likely that shares would reach the low of the range unless the news was an extreme disappointment. First support of significance would be at $124.10 and then at $122.16 and $120.29.
13:31 EDTBABoeing invests over $1B in Everett site

Boeing has started production of the first 737 MAX fuselage stringers at Boeing Fabrication Integrated AeroStructures in Auburn, Wash.

CFM International's LEAP engine took the skies for the first time on October 6 on a modified 747 flying testbed at GE Aviation Flight Test Operations in Victorville, California, launching the next phase of testing for the advanced engine program. The engine behaved well and completed multiple aeromechnical test points at various altitudes during the nearly three-hour first flight. Over the next several weeks, the engine will complete a comprehensive test schedule that will gauge engine operability, stall margin, performance, and acoustics. The LEAP-1A/-1C variants are on track for engine certification in 2015. The total program, which encompasses all three LEAP engine variants, includes 28 ground and CFM flight test engines, along with a total of 32 flight test engines for Airbus (EADSY), Boeing (BA), and COMAC. Although all three LEAP engine variants will fly on the modified testbed, the configuration currently being tested is a fully integrated propulsion system. CFM is a joint venture between GE (GE) and France's Safran. Reference Link
