08:18 EDTFBFacebook says aerospace, laser communications teams hit milestones
Facebook's Connectivity Lab team yesterday announced two milestones toward its goal to accelerate the development of a new set of technologies that can "drastically change the economics of deploying internet infrastructure." First, the team said "Aquila," the high-altitude, long-endurance aircraft designed by its aerospace team in the U.K., is now complete and ready for flight testing. "Aquila has the wingspan of a 737 but weighs hundreds of times less, thanks to its unique design and carbon-fiber frame. When deployed, it will be able to circle a remote region for up to 90 days, beaming connectivity down to people from an altitude of 60,000 to 90,000 feet," Facebook stated. Second, Facebook said its laser communications team achieved a "significant performance breakthrough," noting they’ve designed and lab-tested a laser that can deliver data at 10s of Gb per second, or approximately 10x faster than the previous state-of-the-art in the industry, to a target the size of a dime from more than 10 miles away. Facebook noted its team is now starting to test these lasers in real-world conditions. Reference Link

18:13 EDTFBOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Thursday
The market began the session in negative territory following the release of second quarter GDP data below economists' estimates. Continuing this morning's slow start, the indexes churned in negative territory for the first half of the day before turning mixed near noon. The Dow and S&P generally lagged behind the Nasdaq, with the S&P narrowly edging into positive territory by session close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., gross domestic product was estimated to have grown at a 2.3% annualized rate in the second quarter, though expectations were for GDP growth of 2.7%. The government also upwardly revised its estimate of first quarter GDP growth to 0.6% from a prior estimate of 0.2% contraction in the period. Initial jobless claims rose 12,000 to 267,000 in the week ended July 25, which was a bit below the expected 270,000 first-time claims. COMPANY NEWS: Facebook (FB) reported earnings and revenues last night that topped expectations, but its shares slid $1.78, or 1.84%, to $95.21 as the social network's growth in daily averages users fell a bit short of the consensus forecast and may have missed the high, "whisper" expectations for its report... Shares of Whole Foods (WFM) sunk 11.61% to $36.08 and hit a 52-week low of $35.57 during the session after the company reported weaker than expected results and provided lower than expected profit guidance. Several analysts downgraded shares of the organic foods grocer in the wake of its quarterly report and outlook. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was T-Mobile (TMUS), which advanced $1.82, or 4.91%, to $38.86 after handily beating analyst estimates and raising its outlook for yearly net customer additions forecast. Also higher following their earnings reports were Mondelez (MDLZ) and WWE (WWE), gaining a respective 5.03% and 17.48%. Among the noteworthy losers was Stratasys (SSYS), which fell $3.82, or 10.47%, to $32.67 after the company rescinded its fiscal year guidance, citing a lack of visibility on growth in the market. The news built on continued fears of overcapacity in the sector, leading to session losses for numerous 3D printer stocks, including an 8.94% drop for peer 3D Systems (DDD). Also lower was Qorvo (QRVO), which declined $9.99, or 14.17%, to $60.49 after its second quarter guidance significantly trailed analyst estimates, after which the stock saw price target reductions from BMO and Brean. Additionally, LinnCo (LNCO) declined $1.83, or 29.33%, to $4.41 after parent company Linn Energy (LINE) announced plans to suspend dividends and reserve roughly $450M from annualized distributions, which saw Linn also slipping 26.32% to $4.76. INDEXES: The Dow fell 5.41, or 0.03%, to 17,745.98, the Nasdaq gained 17.05, or 0.33%, to 5,128.79, and the S&P 500 advanced 0.06, or 0.00%%, to 2,108.63.
