16:49 EDTJPM, GS, BAC, WFC, C, MS, JNPR, GMAverages finish the week mixed
Stocks on Wall Street finished the week mixed after lackluster U.S. economic data was paired with mixed results in the first full week of corporate earnings season. MACRO NEWS: U.S. retail sales rose 0.2% in December versus the same period a year earlier, slightly above consensus estimates for sales to come in flat, but lower than the increase of 0.4% in the prior month... The preliminary January reading of the University of Michigan consumer sentiment index came in a little light at 80.4, shy of expectations for an 83.5 reading... Comments by Fed President Dennis Lockhart may have also put a damper on the market, as Lockhart in a speech on Monday said he supported additional tapering by the central bank... European industrial production data was more positive, with production surging 1.8% in November, the largest increase in nearly four years. COMPANY NEWS: IT infrastructure company Juniper Networks (JNPR) rallied on Monday after activist investor Elliott Management disclosed a presentation that outlined initiatives to unlock shareholder value... A number of major U.S. banks reported quarterly results this week, with JPMorgan (JPM), Goldman Sachs (GS), Wells Fargo (WFC), and Bank of America (BAC) all reporting adjusted bottom-line results that topped estimates, while Citigroup (C) and Morgan Stanley (MS) reported weaker than expected results... General Motors (GM) made headlines with several pieces of news, as the company declared its first dividend since emerging from bankruptcy, appointed a new CFO, and said it expects its earnings before interest and tax to be "modestly improved" in 2014. The carmaker also said it expects restructuring costs this year of $1.1B, and shares of the company fell more than 3% for the week. INDEXES: The Dow gained about 0.1% to close at 16,458.56; the S&P 500 fell about 0.2% to close at 1,838.70; the Nasdaq gained about 0.5% to close at 4,197.58.

12:33 EDTGMOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher to begin the day, as reports spurred optimism that a ceasefire agreement between Russia and the Ukraine may soon be reached. The move was short lived, as the averages turned mixed during the second hour of trading. Shares of Apple (AAPL) are weighing down the Nasdaq after an analyst recommended investors take some profits in the stock. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., factory orders rose 10.5% in July, which was a bit below the forecast for 11.0% growth. The Fed's Beige Book is scheduled to be released at 2:00 pm ET. In Europe, the final reading of Eurozone services PMI was knocked down to 53.1 from a preliminary 53.5 reading, mirroring the lowering of the Eurozone manufacturing PMI reading yesterday. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple retreated 4% after research firm Pacific Crest advised investors to take some profits in the stock. Pacific Crest analyst Andy Hargreaves forecast the percentage of new iPhone users who buy the next version of the device beyond the iPhone 6 is likely to decline versus prior cycles. The stock likely has only limited room to increase, according to Hargreaves, who said he would probably downgrade Apple unless new products that can generate billions of dollars in new operating profit are launched at its September 9 event... Carmakers reported on August vehicle sales in the U.S., with Chrysler (FIATY) reporting a 20% increase, Ford stating that sales rose slightly compared to the prior year and General Motors (GM) posting a 1.2% decline in sales. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Infinity Pharmaceuticals (INFI), which jumped 46% after the company announced a cancer drug collaboration with AbbVie (ABBV) and a master clinical supply agreement with Roche (RHHBY). Also higher was Mobileye (MBLY), which gained nearly 10% after Morgan Stanley wrote that the stock could rise "towards $100" if the company maintains its current market, gross margins and earnings position. Mobileye is scheduled to report on its second quarter results tomorrow morning, which will be its first quarterly report since its August IPO. Among the noteworthy losers was Repros Therapeutics (RPRX), which dropped 15% after newly posted FDA briefing documents regarding a panel on T-normalizing therapies prompted Piper Jaffray to downgrade the stock to Neutral from Overweight. Also lower following its earnings report was apparel company Vince Holding (VNCE), which fell 11%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 33.71, or 0.2%, to 17,101.27, the Nasdaq was down 23.24, or 0.51%, to 4,574.95, and the S&P 500 was down 0.64, or 0.03%, to 2,001.64.
