17:01 EDTJNPROn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session mixed and remained that way throughout the trading day, with the Nasdaq the leader and the Dow the laggard. The tech-heavy Nasdaq was helped by a post-earnings rise in shares of Apple (AAPL), while the blue-chip index was weighed down by Boeing's (BA) under-performance following its own quarter report. There was little movement in the averages during the day as they remained in a narrow range, but the increase in the S&P 500 did manage to push it to a new all-time closing high. After the bell, investors will receive the next wave of earnings with AT&T (T), Facebook (FB) and Qualcomm (QCOM) scheduled to report. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., MBA's mortgage market index rose 2.4%, with a 0.3% rise in the purchase index and a 4.1% gain in the refinance index for the week ended July 18. Also, the International Monetary Fund predicted that U.S. economic growth for 2014 as a whole will be a disappointing 1.7%. However, barring unforeseen shocks, 2015 growth should accelerate to the fastest annual pace since 2005, propelled by strong consumption growth, a declining fiscal drag, a pickup in residential investment, and easy financial conditions, said the IMF. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple advanced $2.47, or 2.61%, to $97.19 after reporting third quarter earnings that beat expectations. However, the iPhone maker's revenue came in a bit short of analyst expectations for its just completed quarter and its guidance for sales in the new quarter was also below expectations. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said Apple's September quarter guidance suggests an iPhone 6 launch on September 26, versus the firm's prior expectation for a September 19 launch. Piper views Apple's Q3 results as removing the last major variable ahead of the iPhone and iWatch launches later this year and reiterates an Overweight rating on the stock. Another research firm, Janney Capital, said Apple did not address rumored new products, like the iPhone 6 and iWatch, on its earnings call, but did indicate that its wider than normal revenue guidance range was due to "many moving pieces," suggesting one or two new products may be introduced, but late in the quarter... Dow component Boeing sank $3.03, or 2.34%, to $126.71 despite reporting "core" EPS that beat expectations and raising its fiscal year earnings outlook to a range above the Wall Street consensus. Boeing's revenue missed expectations, however, and it also reported its total company backlog of $440B was unchanged from the beginning of the quarter... Another Dow member, McDonald's (MCD), fell 92c, or 0.96%, to $95.35 after the company reported weaker than expected second quarter results yesterday and its stock was downgraded by at least five research firms. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Puma Biotechnology (PBYI), whose stock surged $174.40, or 295.44%, to $233.43 after the company reported positive data for its breast cancer drug and an analyst at Citigroup said that the company would probably become a takeover target. Also higher was Intuitive Surgical (ISRG), which rose $69.47, or 17.71%, to $461.63 and was upgraded at both Raymond James and Stifel after the company reported better than expected Q2 results. Among the noteworthy losers was Xilinx (XLNX), which tumbled $6.89, or 14.31%, to $41.26 after the company reported lower than expected first quarter revenue and forecast that its sales could drop as much as 4% in Q2 versus Q1. After the report, analysts at William Blair, Bank of America Merrill Lynch and BMO Capital all downgraded the stock. Also lower were shares of Juniper Networks (JNPR), which fell $2.39, or 9.63%, to $22.43 and was also downgraded at Bank of America Merrill Lynch after its Q3 guidance missed expectations. INDEXES: The Dow slid 26.91, or 0.16%, to 17,086.63, the Nasdaq rose 17.68, or 0.4%, to 4,473.70, and the S&P 500 gained 3.48, or 0.18%, to 1,987.01.

07:08 EDTJNPRJuniper valuation still attractive, says Cantor
After Juniper provided weaker than expected Q3 guidance, Cantor cut its price target on the shares to $29.50 from $32. Although the firm sees the delays of deals with service providers which caused the guidance miss as a setback, it thinks the stock's valuation remains attractive while Juniper's cost realignment initiative remains intact. The firm keeps a $29.50 price target and Buy rating on the shares.
