13:18 EDTIBMEarnings Preview: Apple reports after stock split, Beats purchase, iOS 8 launch
Apple (AAPL) is set to report third quarter earnings after the market close on Tuesday, July 22, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Apple, the world's most valuable company by market capitalization, is the manufacturer of the iPhone and iPad, among other desktop and mobile computing devices. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.23 on revenue of $37.99B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is $1.14-$1.37 on revenue of $36.58B-$40.31B. In a note to investors, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said Street analysts expect year-over-year iPhone sales growth of 14% to 35M-36M units, flat iPad sales of 14M-15M units, and a Q3 gross margin of 38%. Munster added that he expects Apple to guide Q4 revenues to $39B-$41B, which is in keeping with Street estimates for about $40.4B in Q4 revenue. LAST QUARTER: Apple reported second quarter EPS of $11.62 on revenue of $45.6B, which topped estimates for $10.18 and $43.5B, respectively. Apple reported iPhones sales of 43.7M units, iPad sales of 16.35M units and Mac sales of 4.14M. Apple said it sees Q3 revenue of $36B-$38B and a gross margin of 37%-38%. Along with its Q2 report, Apple announced a seven-for-one stock split. Apple also announced that its board raised its share repurchase authorization to $90B from the $60B level announced last year and an increase to the company’s quarterly dividend of approximately 8% to $3.29 per common share. NEWS: On May 28, Apple confirmed that it agreed to buy Beats Music, which operates a streaming music service, and Beats Electronics, which makes and sells electronic music products such as headphones and speakers, for $3B. As part of the acquisition, Beats co-founders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre will join Apple. Apple said at that time that it expects the transaction to close in Q4. On June 2, Apple announced OS X Yosemite, a new version of OS X redesigned and refined with a new look, new apps and new continuity features. Apple also unveiled iOS 8, a new version of its mobile operating system with new features for users and developers. Among the features were iCloud Photo Library, which allows user to enjoy photos and videos more easily across devices, new Messages features to easily share voice, video or photos, and a new Health app. Apple noted that the software development kit, or SDK, for iOS 8 was its "biggest developer release ever," with more than 4,000 new APIs. Apple and IBM announced last week that they would collaborate to provide mobile solutions for businesses. Under the deal, the companies will develop more than 100 enterprise solutions, including native apps, for Apple's iPhone and iPads. Moreover, IBM will sell iPhone and iPads to all of its business clients around the world, the companies noted. Also last week, Apple announced that Susan Wagner, founding partner and director of BlackRock (BLK), has been elected to Apple's board and that Bill Campbell, the board’s longest-serving member, is retiring after 17 years of service. Mac Rumors reported on July 10 that Apple was said to have ordered 68M iPhone 6 devices, citing a report in Taiwan's Business Weekly. That's double the amount of phones that the tech giant ordered prior to launching the iPhone 5 in 2012, the tech blog noted. The Wall Street Journal subsequently claimed that Apple has asked its suppliers to manufacture between 70M-80M of its two upcoming large-screen iPhones by the end of the year. ANALYST OPINION: On the day after Apple's last quarterly report, CLSA upgraded its rating on the shares to Buy from Outperform. On May 9, ISI Group downgraded Apple to Buy from Strong Buy, citing valuation. On June 2, following Apple's launch event for iOS 8, Piper Jaffray said it believed parts of Apple's new operating system point towards a possible iWatch later in the year and potential connected home products in the future. Piper said at that time that Apple remains on track to deliver multiple new product categories by the end of 2014. On June 17, Societe Generale upgraded Apple to Buy from Hold. On July 14, Barclays raised its rating on Apple to Overweight from Equal Weight, citing its channel checks that indicated near-term upside to consensus estimates. The firm also believes troubles at Samsung are creating an opportunity for Apple to regain market share and raised its price target for Apple shares to $110 from $95. The same day, Morgan Stanley said its survey results suggest June quarter iPhone demand upside. The firm raised its iPhone unit estimate to 36M from 34M and increased its EPS estimate to $1.24. Morgan Stanley increased it price target on Apple to $110 per share. Yesterday, JMP Securities upgraded Apple to Outperform from Market Perform, as the firm thinks the company is poised to report higher than expected sales and gross margins over the near-term and intermediate term. JMP set a price target of $135 on the stock. In his note previewing Apple's quarter, Munster wrote that Apple's guidance for its September-end quarter should tell investors if new iPhones are launching in September or later in the year. The Piper analyst expects a typical September launch, which could give the company 5 or 12 days of sales with the new phone depending on a standard Friday launch and its timing. Munster estimated the potential 7 day swing in the timing of the new phone could mean a 3M-4M unit and about $2B difference in the guidance for Q4, citing recent weekly run-rates for iPhone sales near launch quarters. PRICE ACTION: Each Apple shareholder of record at the close of business on June 2 received six additional shares for every share held on the record date and trading began on a split-adjusted basis on June 9. Shares of Apple advanced about 8% on the first day of trade following its Q2 report. Since the first day of trade following its last quarterly report, shares of Apple are up nearly 26%. In early afternoon trading ahead of its Q3 report tonight, Apple was up fractionally to just over $94 per share.

10:45 EDTBBYAnalysts roll out coverage on GoPro with differing views
Shares of GoPro (GPRO) are climbing after a number of analysts initiated coverage of the stock with different outlooks. GoPro develops mountable and wearable cameras. BULLISH TAKE: JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster initiated coverage of GoPro with an Overweight rating. GoPro is gaining share in the digital camcorder market, and it has begun to penetrate "active lifestyle" markets, which are a much larger opportunity for the company, Coster believes. The company could ship 10M of its products for use by active lifestyle participants annually, the analyst estimated. In a best case scenario, the company could also sell low-cost devices for the mass market, according to Coster. However, GoPro will face competition from major companies, including Google (GOOG) and possibly Apple (AAPL) in this market, warned Coster, who set a $51 price target on GoPro. Also initiating coverage of the name with an Overweight rating was Piper Jaffray analyst Sean Naughton. GoPro is in the early stages of growth, as the company's user base is poised to expand beyond extreme sports enthusiasts, the analyst forecast. The company has a competitive advantage over other brands, which should enable it to maintain strong profitability, added Naughton, who set a $48 price target on the shares. BEARISH TAKE: Stifel analyst Jim Duffy started coverage of GoPro with a Hold rating. The company's three year growth outlook is compelling, but the stock is fully valued, the analyst believes. The company faces a number of risks, including competition in the image device market and the possibility that its relationship with key channel partners, including Best Buy (BBY), could be disrupted, the analyst wrote. Sales to Best Buy accounted for 17% of GoPro's revenue in fiscal 2013, Duffy reported. After GoPro surged following its initial public offering, the stock is likely to advance by only limited amounts, wrote Barcalys analyst Joseph Wolf, who initiated coverage of the shares with an Equal Weight rating. The stock could fall to $30 if the company is unable to increase its hardware sales or make progress in its efforts to develop a media business, the analyst warned. He set a $45 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: A total of seven analysts rolled out coverage today on GoPro, according to The Fly’s research, with only two recommending the stock with buy-equivalent ratings. Shares of the camera marker are up 3%, or $1.10, to $42.53 in morning trading.

Stocks on Wall Street began the session in positive territory and have remained there throughout the morning. The averages moved in a narrow range for most of the opening hour of the session but spurted to higher levels during the second hour. Investors appear to be using yesterday’s sell-off as a buying opportunity, despite the ongoing events in Russia and Israel that largely contributed to yesterday’s action. ECONOMIC EVENTS: The first release of the University of Michigan consumer sentiment index for July fell to 81.3 after ending June with an 82.5 reading. The leading economic indicator index rose 0.3% to 102.2, which was a bit below the forecast for an increase of 0.5%. COMPANY NEWS: Class A shares of Google (GOOGL) advanced over 3% after the search giant reported quarterly revenue that beat expectations last night. Following its report, at least three Wall Street research firms raised their price targets on the stock, while noted tech analyst Collin Gillis of BGC Financial upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold... Dow component General Electric (GE) reported second quarter EPS of 39c, matching the consensus forecast, and revenue that just missed the consensus view of analysts. The company also reported that it is targeting the initial public offering of IPO of Synchrony Financial (SYF), its North American Retail Finance business, for July. In the IPO, Synchrony is offering 125M shares of its common stock, which will be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “SYF,” and anticipates that the IPO price of the shares will be between $23.00 and $26.00 per share... Another Dow member, IBM (IBM), fell 0.4% after reporting adjusted Q2 earnings per share and revenue that beat expectations. Afterward, Cantor said it thinks the worst is over for the company and reiterated its Buy rating on the shares, though Societe Generale downgraded IBM to Sell from Hold and Credit Suisse said IBM continues to be driven by less revenue growth and kept its Underperform rating and $160 price target on Big Blue's stock. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Skyworks (SWKS), which gained 14% after reporting third quarter results and fourth quarter guidance above analyst estimates and seeing no less than five analyst firms raise their price targets on its stock. Also higher was Gentiva Health (GTIV), which rose 14% after it announced that its board unanimously determined to reject the partial tender offer from Kindred Healthcare (KND) to acquire 14.9% of the outstanding shares of Gentiva for a price of $16.00 per share in cash and disclosed that it has received a $17.25 per share, all-cash takeover proposal from a "recognized owner, operator and investor in the sector." After the announcement, shares of Kindred fell 2%. Also lower following their earnings reports were RealPage (RP), which fell over 21%, and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), which dropped nearly 18%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 107.05, or 0.63%, to 17,083.86, the Nasdaq was up 57.98, or 1.33%, to 4,421.43, and the S&P 500 was up 17.04, or 0.87%, to 1,975.16.

Stocks on Wall Street started the trading day higher, thanks in part to solid earnings reports from some of the nation’s largest companies as well as a proposed mega-merger in the entertainment industry. Investors preparing for the next round of earnings after the close, which includes reports from eBay (EBAY), Yum! Brands (YUM), and Las Vegas Sands (LVS), did so with the Dow at a new all-time high. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Producer Price Index for June rose 0.4%, which was ahead of expectations for a 0.2% increase. Industrial production grew 0.2% in June, missing the forecast for 0.3% growth. The NAHB homebuilder confidence index rose to 53 in July, ahead of expectations for it to tick up 1 point to 50. Economic activity expanded in all regions of the country at a moderate to modest pace in recent weeks, the Fed reported today in its Beige Book. Consumer spending rose in every region, as retail sales grew modestly in most areas and vehicle sales were stronger than sales of most other products, the central bank reported. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of HBO and Warner Bros. parent Time Warner (TWX) surged $12.12, or 17.07%, to $83.13 after it was reported by CNBC and DealBook's Andrew Ross Sorkin that the company had received, and rejected, a takeover offer worth about $80B, or $85 per share, from Rupert Murdoch's Twenty-First Century Fox (FOXA). Both Time Warner and Fox subsequently confirmed the report, with Time Warner stating that it rejected the bid since it was "not in the best interests of stockholders" and Fox noting that the companies are not currently in discussions. Afterward, research firm Jefferies said it believes 21st Century Fox could raise its bid for Time Warner into the mid-to-upper $90's per share, but it also thinks that Time Warner would still be unlikely to accept the offer. Meanwhile, FBR Capital said Fox could pay up to $120 for Time Warner and still make an accretive deal. Class A shares of Twenty-First Century Fox ended the day down $2.19, or 6.22%, to $33.00... Shares of Apple (AAPL) initially rose after announcing last night that it would collaborate with IBM (IBM) to provide mobile solutions for businesses. Goldman Sachs analyst Bill Shope wrote in a note to investors that the deal with IBM is clearly positive for Apple, as it validates the "unique enterprise capabilities" of iOS, which has a lack of fragmentation that makes it uniquely suited for organizations. BlackBerry (BBRY), which has a focus on mobile devices for business use, slid $1.33, or 11.77%, to $9.97 after the tech giants announced their new partnership. Apple closed down 54c, or 0.57%, to $94.78, though IBM (IBM), which reports after tomorrow's close, climbed $3.87, or 2.05%, to $192.36. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Intel (INTC), which advanced $2.94, or 9.27%, to $34.65 after the semiconductor giant's second quarter results beat analysts' consensus estimates. Also higher was Tenet Healthcare (THC), which rallied $3.74, or 8.32%, to $48.71 after after another company in the hospital sector, HCA Holdings (HCA), pre-announced stronger than expected second quarter results. For its part, HCA rose $5.78, or 10.47%, to $60.99 after providing better than expected Q2 guidance and increasing its fiscal year outlook. Among the noteworthy losers was Yahoo (YHOO), which fell $1.82, or 5.11%, to $33.79 after the company's second quarter results fell short of analysts' consensus estimates. The company also said it will lower the amount of stock it will sell in Alibaba's initial public offering to 140M shares and that it plans to return "at least half" of its after-tax proceeds from the stake sale to its shareholders. Also lower were shares of Ross Stores (ROST), which fell $3.12, or 4.78%, to $62.15 after Sterne Agee downgraded its stock to Neutral from Buy and cut its price target for shares to $68 from $81, citing negative traffic trends and low visibility. INDEXES: The Dow rose 77.52, or 0.45%, to 17,138.20, the Nasdaq gained 9.58, or 0.22%, to 4,425.97, and the S&P 500 advanced 8.29, or 0.42%, to 1,981.57.

16:22 EDTAMZNOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher today, but were still lower for the week, as concerns in Europe have come back to the forefront of investors' minds. Today's modest bounce was not enough to make up for the declines seen in three of the other four sessions earlier in the week. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the June federal budget statement showed a surplus of $70.5B for the month, compared to analysts' forecast for a $79B surplus. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Wells Fargo (WFC) slipped 32c, or 0.62%, to $51.49 after the largest mortgage lender in the U.S. posted earnings of $1.01 a share that matched analysts' consensus forecast. Wells did note that its credit performance continued to improve in Q2 and CEO John Stumpf said he is "optimistic about the future" for the bank... Lorillard (LO) advanced $2.92, or 4.63%, to $66.01, while Reynolds American fell 51c, or 0.82%, to $61.75, after the two cigarette makers confirmed that they are holding talks about a possible merger, as has been speculated by various media reports in recent weeks... In another update to an ongoing M&A story, Japan's Nikkei reported that Sprint's (S) corporate parent, Softbank (SFTBF), has reached an agreement to acquire T-Mobile (TMUS) from Deutsche Telecom (DTEGY), clearing the way for the long-speculated merger between the third and fourth largest wireless carriers in the U.S. Following the new story, Sprint shares finished the day up 30c, or 3.64%, to $8.55, while T-Mobile rose 62c, or 1.89%, to $33.50. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Ruckus Wireless (RKUS), which advanced 87c, or 7.9%, to $11.88 after the FCC announced that it would allocate new funds to subsidize the launch of WiFi networks in schools and libraries. Also higher was Amazon.com (AMZN), which climbed $18.28, or 5.57%, to $346.20 after consulting firm ChannelAdvisor (ECOM) reported that the company's same-store sales growth had accelerated significantly in June compared with May. Among the noteworthy losers was Rent-A-Center (RCII), which dropped $3.18, or 10.94%, to $25.88 after the company warned that its revenue and earnings for Q2 will not meet expectations. Also lower were shares of industrial and construction supply retailer Fastenal (FAST), which fell $2.00, or 4.16%, to $46.15 after its Q2 revenue missed analysts' consensus view and the company reported plans to close 45 stores. INDEXES: The Dow was up 28.74, or 0.17%, to 16,943.81, the Nasdaq was up 19.29, or 0.44%, to 4,415.49, and the S&P 500 was up 2.83, or 0.14%, to 1,967.51.

12:35 EDTAMZNFTC alleges Amazon billed parents for children's unauthorized in-app charges
Amazon has billed parents and other account holders for millions of dollars in unauthorized in-app charges incurred by children, according to a Federal Trade Commission complaint filed today in federal court. The FTC’s lawsuit seeks a court order requiring refunds to consumers for the unauthorized charges and permanently banning the company from billing parents and other account holders for in-app charges without their consent. According to the complaint, Amazon keeps 30% of all in-app charges. In its complaint, the FTC alleges that Amazon violated the FTC Act by billing parents and other Amazon account holders for charges incurred by their children without the permission of the parent or other account holder. Amazon’s setup allowed children playing these kids’ games to spend unlimited amounts of money to pay for virtual items within the apps such as “coins,” “stars,” and “acorns” without parental involvement.
