11:04 EDTSHLDFAA proposes $533,000 civil penalty against Sears Holdings
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration proposes a $533,000 civil penalty against Sears Holdings Management Corp. for allegedly violating Hazardous Materials Regulations. The FAA alleges that Sears on Dec. 20, 2012 offered UPS 27 boxes, each containing one DieHard Portable Power Supply that encased a non-spillable battery, for air transportation to various locations in the United States. Workers at the UPS sort facility in Louisville, Ky., discovered six of the corrosive shipments were vibrating and one was warm to the touch. The FAA alleges that Sears failed to package the batteries in accordance with the Hazardous Materials Regulations to prevent unintentional activation. The agency also alleges the shipment was not accompanied by shipping papers to indicate the hazardous nature of its contents, and was not marked or labeled. Additionally, Sears offered the shipment without providing emergency response information and failed to ensure its employees had received required hazardous materials training, the FAA alleges. Sears has 30 days from the receipt of the FAA's enforcement letter to respond to the agency.

16:20 EDTTGTOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street had a see-saw trading day, with every attempt at getting the averages into positive territory being met with more selling. The market spent most of the day in negative territory, however, as the latest bank earnings reports failed to impress investors, the price of oil renewed its downtrend, and the Swiss National bank withdrew its floor support on the Swiss franc. ECONOMIC EVENTS: Internationally, Switzerland's central bank unexpectedly gave up its minimum exchange rate, sending the Swiss franc soaring against the dollar and euro and triggering wild swings in its equity markets. In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose 19K to 316K in the week ended January 10, versus expectations for 298K first-time claims. The producer price index fell 0.3% in December, versus expectations for a decrease of 0.4%. The core PPI rate rose 0.3% in the month, versus expectations for it to be up 0.1%. The Empire State index rebounded to 9.95 in January, beating expectations for a 5.0 reading for the measure of manufacturing activity in the New York area. The Philly Fed index fell 18.0 points to 6.3 in January, which was worse than the projected pullback to a reading of 18.7. WTI crude oil, the U.S. benchmark, reversed its early gains to end the trading session down 4.6% at $46.25 per barrel. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Target (TGT) advanced $1.34, or 1.8%, to $75.67 after the retailer announced plans to stop operating stores in Canada. Target expects this decision will increase its earnings in fiscal 2015 and beyond, and increase its cash flow in fiscal 2016 and beyond. The company also raised its forecasts for Q4 U.S. comparable sales growth and adjusted earnings per share, mostly due to increased traffic and stronger-than-expected digital sales... Bank of America (BAC) slid 84c, or 5.24%, to $15.20 after reporting its fourth quarter results, while Citigroup (C), which also issued its Q4 report, dropped $1.82, or 3.71%, to $47.23. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF), which rose 93c, or 11.94%, to $8.72 amid strength in the basic materials sector. Also benefitting the stock may have been a Bloomberg report that said an adviser to Quebec's investment arm stated that Cliffs' closed down Bloom Lake mine has attracted interest from several potential buyers. Also higher were shares of Kraft Foods (KRFT), which climbed $2.92, or 4.66%, to $65.68 after Goldman Sachs upgraded the stock to Buy and placed the shares on its Conviction List. Also of note, the Consumer Analyst Group of New York confirmed to Bloomberg that the food and beverage manufacturer canceled its upcoming conference appearance. Among the noteworthy losers was Best Buy (BBY), which dropped $5.61, or 14.06%, to $34.30 after reporting holiday growth that was lower than previous quarters, citing factors including weakness in tablets, and guiding toward comparable sales in the first half of FY16, excluding certain items, to be flat to down by a low-single digit percentage. Also lower were shares of BlackBerry (BBRY), which declined $2.49, or 19.77%, to $10.10 after the company said last night that it is not in talks with Samsung (SSNLF) about a potential merger, rebutting a Reuters report. INDEXES: The Dow fell 106.38, or 0.61%, to 17,320.71, the Nasdaq dropped 68.50, or 1.48%, to 4,570.82, and the S&P 500 declined 18.60, or 0.92%, to 1,992.67.

08:41 EDTTGTTarget raises Q4 adjusted EPS view to $1.43-$1.47, may not compare to $1.21
Based on performance through November and December, Target now expects to report Q4 U.S. comparable sales of approximately 3%, better than prior guidance of approximately 2%, driven primarily by increased traffic and stronger-than-expected digital sales. Sees Q4 adjusted EPS, reflecting results from continuing operations, of $1.43-$1.47, about 6c ahead of expectations for U.S. Segment performance at the beginning of the quarter. The company is not able to provide an estimate of its expected Q4 GAAP EPS. However, GAAP results are expected to include: Losses related to liquidation of Target Canada,net of taxes; Net expenses related to the 2013 data breach, which are not expected to be material; the impact of the reduction of the beneficial interest asset recognized in connection with the 2013 sale of the company’s credit card portfolio, which is expected to reduce GAAP EPS by approximately 2c.
08:28 EDTTGTTarget to report Canadian operations as discontinued starting in Q4
As a result of the Canada decision, Target Corporation will operate as a single segment that includes all U.S. operations. Beginning with the company’s Q4 financial results, Target will report adjusted earnings per share reflecting operating results from its U.S. operations, excluding discontinued Canadian operations, the impact of the reduction of the beneficial interest asset recognized in connection with the 2013 sale of the Company’s U.S. consumer credit card portfolio, net expenses related to the 2013 data breach, and the resolution of certain tax matters.
