16:32 EDTSSNI, BBRY, UPS, COF, V, INTC, RDEN, MS, AXPOn 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.

06:35 EDTMSCiti plans to rebuild equities franchise, Reuters reports
Citigroup (C) is planning to rebuild its equities franchise in an effort to capitalize on a retrenchment by rivals in the face of new rules created to make the financial system less risky, Reuters reports, citing people familiar with the bank's plans. It may be tough to overcome leaders such as Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS), and JPMorgan Chase (JPM), that have long dominated the sector, the report says. Citi is aiming to profit from a retreat of rivals slow to adapt new rules forcing banks to keep more capital, the report says. Deutsche Bank (DB), Credit Suisse (CS), and Barclays (BCS) are among others rebuilding their investment banking businesses, the report adds. Reference Link
