16:40 EDTIBMOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher after Fed Chair Janet Yellen struck a dovish tone in comments to the Economic Club of New York, which was in step with the minutes of the last FOMC meeting released last week. The Fed also released its latest Beige Book report, which indicated that economic activity increased in most regions after the severe winter weather that gripped much of the country to start the year had let up. Corporate earnings season continues to pick up steam, with Dow members IBM (IBM) and American Express (AXP), as well as Google (GOOG), reporting after the market close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts in March were up 2.8% from the prior month to a rate of 946K, versus expectations for an increase of 7%. Building permits were down 2.4% to a 990K rate, versus expectations for a decline of 0.4%. Industrial production rose 0.7% in March, which was ahead of the 0.5% forecast. The Fed's Beige Book report indicated that economic activity rebounded and strengthened in most regions over the last six week. In China, data showed its economy grew 7.4% in the first quarter from a year earlier, providing relief after recent signs that growth in the world's second largest economy has been slowing. COMPANY NEWS: Bank of America (BAC) fell 26c, or 1.59%, to $16.13 after the bank reported a first quarter loss of 5c per share, largely due to $6B in legal charges. Excluding the impact of this litigation expense, which was related to a previously announced settlement with the Federal Housing Finance Agency and other legacy mortgage-related matters, the banking major reported earnings that appeared to beat estimates... Yahoo (YHOO) gained $2.14, or 6.26%, to $36.35 after its quarterly report, with investors reacting most positively to the 66% year-over-year revenue growth reported by Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba, in which Yahoo holds a 24% stake. Yahoo's quarterly profit and revenue also beat expectations and the company's CEO Marissa Mayer said during its earnings webcast that the search giant's core business has moved from declining growth to stable to modest growth. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was CBS Outdoor (CBSO), which jumped $1.94, or 6.69%, to $30.96 after the IRS approved a plan for the company, which was just last week spun-off from its parent CBS (CBS), to convert into a real estate investment trust, or REIT. Other companies seeking REIT status, including Equinix (EQIX), Iron Mountain (IRM) and Lamar Advertising (LAMR), also rose following CBS' announcement. Also higher was drugmaker Zogenix (ZGNX), up 48c, or 20.51%, to $2.82 after confirming that a judge prevented a ban on sales of the company's Zohydro pain medication in Massachusetts. Among the noteworthy losers were U.S.-listed shares of Credit Suisse (CS), which fell 54c, or 1.7%, to $31.22 after the Swiss bank reported net income and revenue that fell when compared to the prior year. Also lower were Agnico Eagle Mines (AEM) and Yamana Gold (AUY) after agreeing to jointly acquire Osisko Mining. Angico shares fell $2.61, or 8.56%, to $27.88, while Yamana was down 36c, or 4.3%, to $8.02. INDEXES: The Dow was up 162.29, or 1.0%, to 16,424.85, the Nasdaq was up 52.06, or 1.29%, to 4,086.23, and the S&P 500 was up 19.33, or 1.05%, to 1,862.31.

11:23 EDTIBMInfosys falls after quarterly revenue trails estimates
Shares of Infosys (INFY), which consults on business information technology and systems integration, are falling after the company's fourth quarter revenue trailed analysts' consensus estimate. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Infosys reported fourth quarter earnings per share of 85c and revenue of $2.09B, compared to expectations of 79c and $2.11B, respectively. The company's CEO and Managing Director, S. D. Shibulal, said he was pleased that Infosys was able to double its growth rate for the full year compared to last year, though added that its performance in the last quarter of of the fiscal year had been "disappointing." The company noted that Infosys and its subsidiaries added 50 clients during the quarter and 238 during the year. Infosys forecast FY15 revenue growth of 7%-9%, compared to consensus of $9.06B. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Infosys said its board had decided to increase the dividend pay-out ratio to up to 40% of post-tax profits effective FY14. Infosys' current policy is to pay dividends up to 30% of post-tax profits. OTHERS TO WATCH: Like Infosys, Wipro (WIT) is an IT services and software solution consultant headquartered in India. Others in the business consulting space include Cognizant Technology (CTSH), IBM (IBM) and Accenture (ACN). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Infosys fell $3.49, or about 6.3%, to $52.09 on nearly twice its average daily trading volume. Shares of Cognizant were down about 0.75% to $48.12, while Wipro was up about 2.6% to $13.56.

13:14 EDTWMTFamily Dollar slides after holiday disappointment prompts store closures
Shares of discount retailer Family Dollar (FDO) are falling after the company reported second quarter earnings per share and revenue that fell below expectations, along with third quarter and FY14 projections that are lower than analysts' consensus. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Family Dollar reported second quarter earnings per share of 80c, which fell below analysts consensus of 90c. The company reported second quarter revenue of $2.72B, while analysts projected $2.77B. Family Dollar, which reported that its second quarter same-store-sales decreased by 3.8%, said the holiday season was challenged by "a more promotional competitive environment and a more financially constrained consumer" and that its results were also significantly impacted by severe winter weather like many retailers. The company expects third quarter earnings per share excluding-items to be 85c-95c, while analysts project a 98c consensus. Family Dollar said that it sees FY14 earnings per share excluding items to be $3.05-$3.25, which is at the lower end of analysts' estimations. Family Dollar noted that it expects to close nearly 370 underperforming stores in the second half of FY14 and slow new store growth beginning in FY15. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During Family Dollar's earnings conference call, the company said that it plans to slow square footage growth in the beginning of FY14 and said that it recently cut about 10% of its corporate workforce. ANALYST OPINION: Wells Fargo analyst Matt Nemer said Family Dollar's third quarter negative comp guidance and commentary about a challenging macro environment could pressure its own shares as well as those of its peers Dollar General (DG) and Dollar Tree (DLTR). However, Family Dollar's store closures combined with a decrease in future store growth could ultimately have positive implications for its competitors, Nemer added. On March 4, Credit Suisse said Family Dollar's underperformance compared to Dollar General and significant earnings possibilities gives the rationale for a potential merger of the two. On February 19, Credit Suisse analyst Michael Exstein suggested that Wal-Mart (WMT) should consider acquiring Family Dollar as a way to "jumpstart" its small store effort. CNBC's David Faber reported the same morning that Exstein published his note that Family Dollar was not holding any talks about selling itself at that time. PRICE ACTION: During afternoon trading, shares of Family Dollar decreased $1.54, or 2.61%, to $57.53, Dollar Tree dropped 2.5%, and Dollar General fell about 1.5%.

15:02 EDTAMZNRovi issues statement in response to court ruling in Amazon case
The U.S. Court of Appeals issued its decision in Rovi’s (ROVI) patent infringement litigation against Amazon (AMZN). Rovi had sued Amazon for infringing the two patents at issue in the decision. The appeals court sided with Amazon and found that the District Court’s interpretation of the claims of the patents was correct and therefore Amazon did not infringe these patents. "We are disappointed by this decision," said Rovi executive VP Samir Armaly, worldwide intellectual property and licensing. "It should be noted that this decision relates to only two patents in our extensive portfolio. We believe that our portfolio is even more relevant to Amazon today and going-forward than when the present litigation began in early 2011. Since that time, Amazon has continued to expand its video and over-the-top offerings through new products like the recently announced Fire TV. As illustrated by various recent agreements, Rovi’s patent portfolio continues to be recognized by leading companies looking to deliver compelling video experiences across multiple screens. We plan to continue to pursue Amazon going-forward to take the necessary licenses under our patent portfolio, not only to protect our rights but also the rights of our existing licensees in this space."

19:03 EDTSHLDSears completes Land's End spin-off, receives $500M in gross proceeds
Sears Holdings (SHLD) announced that its pro-rata spin-off of Lands' End (LE) from Sears Holdings closed on April 4. Lands' End has now been separated from Sears Holdings and its common stock is expected to begin regular-way trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol LE on April 7. Sears Holdings will continue to be listed on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol SHLD. Sears Holdings received aggregate gross proceeds from the spin-off of $500M, consisting of a cash dividend paid by Lands' End prior to the spin-off to a subsidiary of Sears Holdings. In the spin-off, Sears Holdings distributed a total of approximately 32M shares of Lands' End common stock to the holders of Sears Holdings common stock as of 5:30 p.m. Eastern time on March 24, the record date. Each share of Sears Holdings common stock outstanding as of the record date entitles the holder thereof to receive 0.300795 shares of Lands' End common stock, except that holders of Sears Holdings' restricted stock that was unvested as of the record date will receive cash awards in lieu of shares. In addition, as part of the spin-off, Lands' End entered into an asset-based senior secured revolving credit facility, which provides for maximum borrowings of approximately $175M with a letter of credit sub-limit, and a senior secured term loan facility of approximately $515M. The proceeds of the term loan facility were used to pay the $500M dividend to the Sears Holdings subsidiary and to pay fees and expenses associated with the foregoing facilities of approximately $10M, with the remaining proceeds to be used by Lands' End for general corporate purposes.
