09:02 EDTBCSAnalyst pans competing products, says buy Fitbit
Shares of previous high-flier Fitbit (FIT) have dropped about 30% in the last two weeks following the company's third quarter earnings report, but an analyst at Bank of America upgraded his view of the fitness tracker maker this morning, saying that now is the time to buy ahead of fourth quarter results that may be boosted by the "underwhelming" new products being launched by its competitors. UNDERWHELMING COMPETITION: Fitbit's sales guidance for this holiday quarter looks conservative, contends Bank of America analyst Nat Schindler, who notes that the company only had the launch of one new product last December but will have the Charge, Charge HR and Surge to drive sales this season. Schindler also notes that the company's international advertising has expanded into more countries ahead of the holidays this year. Key, however, may be the "underwhelming" lineup of new or updated fitness trackers launched by competitors, such as the Microsoft's (MSFT) Band 2, Jawbone's UP4 and Sony's (SNE) Smartband 2, many of which have only minor improvements and no "must have" features to pull consumers away from Fitbit, Schindler told investors in his research note. PLATFORM PICKING UP STEAM: The analyst also pointed out that Fitbit now has more than 20 companies signed onto its health and wellness platform, including big names like Target (TGT) and Barclays (BCS), which he believes should help drive revenue beats in the upcoming fiscal year due to increased device sales. Also, the additional dashboard data should help Fitbit maintain long-term user engagement, said Schindler. APPLE WATCH: Apple's (AAPL) Apple Watch is largely viewed as the biggest potential competitive threat to Fitbit's offerings, but on the fitness tracker maker's last earnings call CEO James Park said Fitbit's products differ from those of its competitors in several key aspects, including pricing, cross-platform compatibility, brand awareness and product line breadth. Other wearables makers include Garmin (GRMN) and Samsung. PRICE ACTION: Since the day after Fitbit's last earnings report after the market close on November 2, its shares have fallen about 29.5% to close yesterday at $28.80. In pre-market trading this morning, Fitbit shares rose 2% to $29.40.

12:17 EDTAPAOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly higher at midday following a morning of lackluster trading, which may be due to lower volume on account of the observance of Veteran's Day. There were four initial public offerings that priced and each opened above their offering; a better reflection of the syndicate market than several weeks ago when deals could not be completed. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the economic calendar was quiet with no major announcements. U.S. bond markets are closed in observance of Veteran's Day. In China, industrial output rose 5.6% in October, matching March's reading as the weakest since 2008. Retail sales climbed 11% last month, beating expectations. COMPANY NEWS: In another sign of China's transition from a purely industrial economy to one driven more by consumption, Alibaba Group (BABA)reported blockbuster sales for the 11.11 shopping festival, better known as "Singles' Day." By the end of Wednesday in China, gross merchandise volume on Alibaba's platforms hit $14.3B, far exceeding last year's 24-hour total of $9.3B, but shares of the Chinese e-commerce giant trading in New York slid 2%... Shares of Macy's (M) plunged over 13.5% and its peers followed it lower after the department store operator cut its outlook for fiscal year 2015 after reporting third quarter revenue that missed analysts' estimates. Macy's also said it will not be pursuing the formation of a real estate investment trust. Conversely, J.C. Penney (JCP) reported stronger than expected same-store sale growth and previewed that its soon-to-be reported earnings and gross margin performance in the third quarter exceeded its expectations, but the stock was caught in Macy's downdraft, falling about 2.5%... The boards of Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD) and SABMiller (SBMRY) announced that they have reached agreement on the terms of a combination deal worth $107B. In relation to their deal, Molson Coors (TAP) entered into a definitive agreement to purchase SABMiller's (SBMRY) 58% stake in MillerCoors, the joint venture formed in the United States in 2008, in a transaction valued at $12B. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Atmel (ATML), which rallied 4% after Dialog Semiconductor (DLGNF) said that it continues to "strongly" support its agreement to acquire Atmel. Also higher was Amazon (AMZN), which gained 2% after an analyst at Morgan Stanley raised his price target on the company's stock to $800 from $750M, citing the growing AWS opportunity. Among the noteworthy losers was Horizon Pharma (HZNP), which fell over 16% after Express Scripts (ESRX) cut ties with specialty pharmacy Linden Care, which is used by Horizon and Insys Therapeutics (INSY), which also dropped 9%. Also lower was SunEdison (SUNE), which lost another 14.5%, adding more losses to yesterday's post-earnings slide after UBS cut its price target on the company's shares to $6 from $9. In addition, Anadarko (APC) and Apache (APA) fell about 3.5% and 6%, respectively, after Anadarko confirmed that it sent a takeover proposal to Apache, which it later withdrew. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 3.87, or 0.02%, to 17,762.08, the Nasdaq was up 14.42, or 0.28%, to 5,097.66, and the S&P 500 was up 0.78, or 0.04%, to 2,082.50.
