16:32 EDTINTC, UPS, AXP, V, BBRY, MS, COF, SSNI, RDENOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed, with the Dow serving as the only index to close in the green following a post-earnings gain from American Express (AXP), as well as a strong session from Visa (V) which gained more than 4.5%. With today's close the S&P 500 served as the only major average closing the week with losses, though no index logged a weekly move greater than 0.4%. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts fell 9.8% to a rate of just under 1M in December, though that decline was roughly in-line with expectations. Building permits dropped 3.0% from the prior month, versus an expected decrease of 0.3%. Industrial production rose 0.3% in December, meeting the consensus forecast of economists. The preliminary January reading of the University of Michigan consumer sentiment index came in at 80.4, versus expectations for a 83.5 reading. JOLTS data showed job openings rose 70K in November to about 4M. COMPANY NEWS: Intel (INTC) fell 69c, or 2.60%, to $25.85 after last night reporting mixed fourth quarter results and fiscal 2014 guidance. The chipmaking giant reported earnings per share that missed estimates by 1c on revenue that narrowly beat expectations and said there were signs of stabilization in the personal computer market in the quarter. Intel's 2014 revenue guidance was somewhat disappointing, with the company saying it expects revenue to be flat compared to the just completed year... UPS (UPS) fell 58c, or 0.58%, to $99.91, closing well off its worst levels, after pre-announcing weaker than expected fourth quarter results. UPS estimated that its fourth quarter earnings per share would be $1.25, shy of analysts' estimates for $1.43. The shipping giant cited the compressed holiday shopping season and an "unprecedented" level of online shopping that featured a surge of orders at the very end of the season, which forced the company to take "extraordinary measures" that hurt profits. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was BlackBerry (BBRY), up 53c, or 6.19%, to $9.09 after short-selling blog Citron Research disclosed a long position on shares and put a "minimum" price target on the stock of $15, saying the stock's current position creates a "unique trading opportunity." Also higher following their quarterly reports were banking major Morgan Stanley (MS), up $1.40, or 4.38%, to $33.40, and credit card giant American Express (AXP), up $3.19, or 3.63%, to $90.97. Among the noteworthy losers was Capital One (COF), down $4.05, or 5.30%, to $72.39 after the company's fourth quarter profit came in below expectations and the stock was downgraded to Neutral from Positive at Susquehanna. Also lower were Silver Spring Network (SSNI), down $5.81, or 24.72%, to $17.69 and Elizabeth Arden (RDEN), down $6.54, or 18.96%, to $27.96, after both companies last night warned that their quarterly profit and sales would come in below expectations. INDEXES: The Dow was up 41.55, or 0.25%, to 16,458.56; the S&P 500 was down 7.19, or 0.39%, to 1,838.70; the Nasdaq was down 21.11, or 0.5%, to 4,197.58.

07:16 EDTRDENElizabeth Arden: 1Q15 will be challenged by factors affecting recent quarters
Fiscal 2015 will be focused on stabilizing the business and will be the first year of a multi-year plan to rebuild profitability. The Company expects a modest improvement in adjusted earnings for fiscal 2015 over the prior year with continued improvement in fiscal 2016. Specifically, for fiscal 2015, the Company currently expects the following: The first quarter of fiscal 2015 will continue to be challenged by the same factors that affected recent quarters; Net sales headwinds to continue for the first half of fiscal 2015, resulting primarily from a lower level of product innovation as compared to the first half of the prior fiscal year; Net sales increases in the second half of the fiscal year versus the prior year period as the year-over-year product launch comparisons moderate and the Company begins to realize the impact of improved pricing; Gross margin expansion due to improved pricing, better mix, lower discounts and realization of reduced supply chain and product costs; Lower overall selling, general and administrative expenses, with some reinvestment of 2014 Improvement Plan savings to drive future growth; Improved EBITDA margins from gross margin expansion and lower selling, general and administrative expenses; Stronger cash flow from operations as a result of higher earnings and lower investment in inventory.
