VirnetX (VHC) announced that it filed a petition with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, requesting a rehearing and rehearing en banc of the Federal Circuit's September 14 decision concerning VirnetX's litigation against Apple (AAPL). In its petition, VirnetX is asking the court to rehear its decision with respect to damages and affirm the district court's damages award against Apple in full because the Federal Circuit's decision is contrary to the patent statute and Supreme Court precedent. VirnetX is also asking the Federal Circuit to reinstate the jury's award that Apple infringed the '504 and '211 patents on the basis that the district court correctly construed the claim term "secure communication link." Kendall Larsen, VirnetX CEO and President said, "We respectfully believe the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit erred in certain parts of its decision and are asking it to further review its decision. We look forward to readdressing the decision with the court and remain confident about the strength of our arguments regarding restoration of the jury's damages award."

13:09 EDTAAPLEarnings Preview: eBay to report Q3 earnings after PayPal spin-off announcement
eBay (EBAY) is expected to report third quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, October 15 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. eBay is a technology company that enables commerce through Marketplaces, Payments, and GSI. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 67c on revenue of $4.37B. The consensus range is 65c-72c for EPS, and $4.33B-$4.43B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: eBay reported second quarter EPS of 69c against estimates of 68c on revenue of $4.37B against estimates of $4.38B. The company gave Q3 EPS guidance of 65c-67c and Q3 revenue guidance of $4.3B-$4.4B as well as FY14 EPS guidance of $2.95-$3.00. It narrowed FY14 revenue guidance to $18B-$18.3B from $18B-$18.5B. eBay said Google search algorithm change slowed traffic in June. The company confirmed the Q3 guidance during a conference call in September. NEWS AND STREET RESEARCH: eBay announced in late September that it will separate eBay and PayPal into two independent publicly traded companies, set to be completed in the second half of 2015. eBay Marketplaces President Devin Wenig will be the CEO of the new eBay company and Dan Schulman will become CEO of the new PayPal company. The cost of the transaction has yet to be determined, and the split is not designed to position either business for sale. During its conference call to discuss the split, the company said PayPal is on track to process 1B mobile payments this year and added that Apple (AAPL) could help speed NFC adoption and would be good for PayPal. eBay adds that it has "never been more bullish" on PayPal's prospects. Following the announcement, there were rumors that Google (GOOG) was looking to acquire eBay. Piper Jaffray said the press reports of the talks between the two companies are "largely unsubstantiated." The company was downgraded at JPMorgan, JMP Securities, Jeffries, and Wedbush after the announcement of a split due to increased uncertainty. Investors say the benefit of the spin-off plans are not as clear, unsure if a standalone PayPal is in a better position to compete in the quickly changing digital payments space. Wedbush analysts say a spin-off will not boost the payment processor's business and may have negative consequences for both companies. Investors were also split on how Apple's mobile payments platform will affect eBay and PayPal. RW Baird said Apple iWallet will pose a threat to PayPal, particularly to its opportunities at point-of-sale and Piper Jaffray said the new payments system will further weigh on eBay's multiple over the next six months. JPMorgan, however, said iWallet will be a net positive for payment networks and Citigroup believes the risks from Apple are likely overstated. PRICE ACTION: eBay shares have dropped more 2.21% since the first day of trading following the company's Q2 report. In Wednesday midday trading ahead of its earnings report, eBay shares are trading down 2%.

16:22 EDTAAPLOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
The Wall Street averages were mixed after three of the U.S.'s largest banks reported on their quarterly results and Germany slashed its economic forecasts for this year and next. Following the mostly solid earnings reports from the banks and Dow member Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) investors appeared to breathe a sigh of relief and sent the averages higher in early trading. With oil prices falling almost 5% and settling at a recent low, the averages pared their gains and struggled in positive ground. Another late day slide ended with the averages mixed, as the Nasdaq led and the Dow lagged. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the International Energy Agency said in its monthly oil market report that world oil demand growth would be weaker than previously expected. Afterward, WTI crude oil futures fell 4.6% at $81.84, marking their biggest percentage drop since late 2012 and the lowest settlement for the benchmark in over two years. The National Federation of Independent Business' small business optimism index came in at 95.3, versus the consensus expectation for a 95.8 reading. In Europe, Germany's government cut its forecasts for gross domestic product growth to 1.2% in 2014 and 1.3% next year from its prior view of 1.8% growth this year and 2% in 2015. COMPANY NEWS: The first of America's big banks issued their quarterly reports, with JPMorgan's (JPM) headline earnings per share coming in below analysts’ consensus estimate, Wells Fargo (WFC) reporting in-line earnings and improved credit quality and Citigroup (C) posting better than expected adjusted third quarter profit. Citi, which also announced plans to pull back from retail banking in eleven countries and said it will disband a legacy Banamex unit after an investigation uncovered illegal conduct, saw its stock fare the best among the three, rising $1.57, or 3.15%, to $51.47... Another Dow member, Johnson & Johnson, reported better than expected profits and revenues and raised its FY14 EPS outlook, but its stock slid $2.11, or 2.13%, to $97.01. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Domino's Pizza (DPZ), which rose $8.58, or 11.33%, to $84.30 after the pizza chain owner and franchisor reported better than expected third quarter earnings per share and revenue. Also higher was Skyworks (SWKS), which advanced $3.59, or 7.92%, to $48.91 after the supplier of chips to Apple (AAPL) raised its fourth quarter earnings per share outlook and revenue guidance. Among the noteworthy losers was Exactech (EXAC), which dropped $4.09, or 16.63%, to $20.50 after the company warned its Q3 income and revenue will likely miss its prior guidance. Also lower were shares of Gilead (GILD), which fell $4.26, or 4.2%, to $97.18 amid a number of developments. Competitor Johnson & Johnson said it would seek to make its own hepatitis C treatment accessible and "competitive," which some may have read as an indication of a potential price cut, and Ireland said it plans to close its "Irish Double" tax loophole, which currently benefits Gilead. INDEXES: The Dow slipped 5.88, or 0.04%, to 16,315.19, the Nasdaq rose 13.52, or 0.32%, to 4,227.17, and the S&P 500 added 2.96, or 0.16%, to 1,877.70.

The firm believes Skyworks is benefiting from record Apple (AAPL) iPhone sales. It estimates Skyworks has around $5.50 worth of content in the iPhone 6/6+, up from $4.80 in the iPhone 5S/5C. Craig-Hallum reiterates a Buy rating on the stock with a $62 price target.

11:39 EDTINTCIntel technical comments ahead of earnings
The shares have outperformed the broader averages over the last three months. Removing today's bounce, the stock has been flat against the down performance of the averages. The trading pattern for the stock when viewed with a three-month window has been up sharply, sideways, and down sharply. That doesn't leave a great deal of room for trend interpretation other than traders being cautious into results. When we pull back to a 1-year view, the technical picture is strikingly different. Almost all of the gains in shares this year, up over 34% excluding today, has come since the early summer. That sharp rise then developed into a bearish rounding formation viewed on a closing basis. On an OHLC chart, the formation instead is an Island Top. That is, a bullish gap, the sideways move previously described, and a bearish gap from yesterday. That leaves the price action of the last several months isolated, an island, within the context of the longer term uptrend. Island Tops are usually considered extremely bearish on a technical basis, suggesting the up move has exhausted itself in a blow-off. If the news on earnings and outlook supports this bearish price interpretation, there could be significant downside risk. Levels to watch on the downside would be at $31.80, the bottom of the bullish gap from July, $30,03, and $28.10, the bottom of the bullish gap from June. A break below $28 might leave the shares back in the $24 to $26 range characteristic of the price action at the start of the year. If the news is positive, the first major resistance is at the 52-week high at $35.56 and then at $37.15.

Oppenheimer raised its estimates on Skyworks (SWKS) after the company pre-announced better than expected Q4 results. The firm expects sustained tailwinds into and beyond next quarter for Skyworks based on continued shares gains at Apple (AAPL) and from rising 4G/LTE phone sales in China. Oppenheimer maintains its Outperform rating and $65 price target on Skyworks and says the stock remains one of its top picks.
10:10 EDTINTCChip makers rise following Skyworks positive preannouncement
Shares of a number of semiconductor makers are climbing after one of the companies in the sector, Skyworks (SWKS), preannounced stronger than expected results. WHAT'S NEW: Skyworks, which develops chips for cell phones, raised its fourth quarter earnings per share outlook to $1.08 from $1.00. Analysts' consensus estimate was $1.01. The chip maker increased its Q4 revenue guidance to $718M from $680M. Analysts' consensus estimate was $679.5M. "Skyworks’ upwardly revised outlook demonstrates the broad-based strength of our business and our ability to capitalize on positive underlying market trends to connect everyone and everything, all the time,” said Skyworks CEO David Aldrich. "These multi-year technology trends are setting the stage for us to outperform the broader semiconductor industry in the December quarter and for the foreseeable future," the CEO added. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Skyworks' positive report comes less than a week after another semiconductor maker, Microchip (MCHP), preannounced lower than expected revenue and said it thought the sector had entered a correction. Semiconductor stocks have sold off sharply since Microchip's preannouncement and pessimistic comments. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Skyworks surged 6.4% to $48.24, Intel (INTC) rose 1.5% to $31.94, NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) rose 1.2% to $54.55, STMicroelectronics (STM) advanced 2% to $6.82, and Avago Technologies (AVG) gained fractionally to $69.30.

16:22 EDTINTCOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street had a bit of a see-saw trading day, but ended the session in the red once again. The Nasdaq took the brunt of the losses, falling over 2%, while the Dow's slide erased its gains for the year. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the import price index fell 0.5% in September, versus expectations for a 0.7% decline. Oil slumped to a four-year low during the session, as brent crude touched $88.11 intra-day, its lowest level since December 2010. COMPANY NEWS: The semiconductor sector was weak across the board after one of the companies in the space, Microchip Technology (MCHP), warned that it believes the sector has entered a correction. Microchip President and CEO Steve Sanghi claimed his company often sees the turn of the semiconductor industry ahead of others, noting that it does business with over 80,000 customers and that it built a significant amount of inventory in the distribution channel in the September quarter. Sanghi stated, "We believe that another industry correction has begun and that this correction will be seen more broadly across the industry in the near future.” Microchip, which also pre-announced weaker than expected second quarter revenue, dropped $5.58, or 12.26%, to $39.96. Intel (INTC) fell $1.71, or 5.09%, to $31.91, Avago (AVGO) declined $9.24, or 11.46%, to $71.36, Texas Instruments (TXN) slipped $3.28, or 7.13%, to $42.74 and Micron (MU) dropped $2.71, or 8.86%, to $27.93. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Exact Sciences (EXAS), which rallied $6.48, or 35.76%, to $24.60 after the company announced last night that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, or CMS, had agreed to cover the company's colorectal cancer and pre-cancer test through Medicare. Also higher was Dave & Buster (PLAY), which gained $1.28 to $17.28 after commencing trading on the Nasdaq following its initial public offering. Among the noteworthy losers was Procera Networks (PKT), which was downgraded by at least four research firms and plunged $2.85, or 33.33%, to $5.70 after the company warned its Q3 revenue will miss expectations. Also lower were shares of Caesars (CZR), which dropped $1.92, or 17.36%, to $9.14 after disclosing in a regulatory filing that its Chief Accounting Officer resigned to accept a position with another company. INDEXES: The Dow fell 115.15, or 0.69%, to 16,544.10, the Nasdaq plunged 102.10, or 2.33%, to 4,276.24, and the S&P 500 dropped 22.08, or 1.15%, to 1,906.13.

Stocks on Wall Street opened in negative territory and saw several swings throughout the morning. Near midday the averages were mixed, with the Dow a bit higher and the Nasdaq weighed down by weakness across the semiconductor sector. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the import price index fell 0.5% in September, versus expectations for a 0.7% decline. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of a number of semiconductor makers, including industry giant Intel (INTC), were sharply lower after one of the companies in the space, Microchip Technology (MCHP), warned that it believes the sector has entered a correction. Microchip President and CEO Steve Sanghi claimed his company often sees the turn of the semiconductor industry ahead of others, noting that it does business with over 80,000 customers and that it built a significant amount of inventory in the distribution channel in the September quarter. Sanghi stated, "We believe that another industry correction has begun and that this correction will be seen more broadly across the industry in the near future.” Near noon, Microchip dropped 11%, Intel fell almost 4%, Texas Instruments (TXN) slipped over 6%, Micron (MU) dropped 6% and Fairchild (FCS) declined 12%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Exact Sciences (EXAS), which rallied 35% after the company announced last night that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, or CMS, had agreed to cover the company's colorectal cancer and pre-cancer test through Medicare. Among the noteworthy losers were a number of companies that, similarly to Microchip, warned that their quarterly results will likely miss expectations, including Procera Networks (PKT), which plunged 34%, Manitowoc (MTW), which fell 9%, and Sizmek (SZMK), which dropped 21%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 38.02, or 0.23%, to 16,697.27, the Nasdaq was down 35.89, or 0.82%, to 4,342.45, and the S&P 500 was up 0.42, or 0.02%, to 1,928.63.
10:29 EDTINTCMicrochip CEO warning on industry correction sinks semiconductors
Shares of a number of semiconductor makers are falling sharply after one of the companies in the space, Microchip Technology (MCHP), warned that it believes the sector had entered a correction. In a note to investors today, research firm FBR Capital said Microchip's comments "could be worrisome, " and the firm responded by taking a more defensive stance on the space. WHAT'S NEW: Microchip, which develops microcontroller and analog semiconductors, estimated that its second quarter revenue would come in at $546.2M, versus its previous guidance of $560.0M-$575.9M and analysts' consensus estimate of $568M. The company said that it had experienced a number of negative trends during the quarter, including a weaker than usual September, weakness in China, and significant inventory builds at its distributor customers. Microchip President and CEO Steve Sanghi claimed his company often sees the turn of the semiconductor industry ahead of others, noting that it reports sales from distribution on a sell-through basis and built a significant amount of inventory in the distribution channel in the September quarter and that it does business with over 80,000 customers. Sanghi stated, "We believe that another industry correction has begun and that this correction will be seen more broadly across the industry in the near future.” ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, FBR Capital analyst Christopher Rolland said that Microchip's statements come in the wake of other negative signs for the sector. In August and September, lead times for the sector fell versus the month before, the analyst stated. Additionally, revenue trends at Taiwanese chip makers weakened in August, Rolland stated. The analyst said that Microchip's statements pushed him over the fence, causing him to take a more defensive stance on the sector. He removed ON Semiconductor (ONNN) from FBR's Top Picks list but kept an Outperform rating on the stock, as he believes that its valuation is "very reasonable." Rolland maintained Market Perform ratings on Atmel (ATML), Texas Instruments (TXN), Fairchild (FCS), AMD (AMD), and Applied Micro Circuits (AMCC). Sterne Agee also attributed weakness in the sector to Microchip's warnings, but the firm recommended buying NXP Semiconductors (NXPI), Avago (AVGO), and Skyworks (SWKS) due to their strong product cycles with EMV and upcoming iPhone-iPad launches from Apple (AAPL). In addition, the firm said it would buy Micron (MU) and SanDisk (SNDK) given tight supply, below normal inventory levels, and tailwinds from China. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Microchip dropped nearly 14% to $39.29, Intel (INTC) fell almost 6% to $31.67, On Semiconductor slid 10% to $7.53, Atmel tumbled 11.5% to $6.61, Texas Instruments slipped 8% to $42.16, Fairchild slumped 10.6% to $12.95, AMD dropped 6% to $2.77, Applied Micro declined 10% to $6.19, and NXP Semiconductors was 14% lower to $55.27.
