12:25 EDTKMI, CQB, TSLA, KING, KMP, KMR, EPB, INO, GOGOOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in positive territory and have remained there throughout the morning. There was little in the way of a catalyst, as the economic calendar was empty, though investors may have been encouraged that there was no breakdown in the ceasefire agreement between Israel and Gaza and no big headlines from the Russia/Ukraine border. Additionally, some may have viewed comments from Fed Vice Chair Fischer as dovish and in support of continued easing. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no significant economic data was released. In prepared comments for a conference, Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said rebounds across advanced economies have been disappointing, leading the Fed and other observers to lower their long-term expectations for growth potential in the U.S. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Kinder Morgan (KMI) advanced 10% after announcing it will consolidate its oil-and-gas holdings into one company by acquiring all of the outstanding shares of a number of its subsidiaries, including Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP), Kinder Morgan Management (KMR) and El Paso Pipeline Partners (EPB). In addition to the rise in the shares of the parent, Kinder Morgan Energy shares rose 19%, Kinder Morgan Management gained 25% and El Paso Pipeline moved up 22%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was salad and banana producer Chiquita Brands (CQB), which jumped 31% to trade above $13 per share after Cutrale Group and the Safra Group proposed to acquire 100% of the company's outstanding stock for $13 in cash each. Also higher was electric car maker Tesla (TSLA), which rose 5% after Deutsche Bank upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold and raised its price target on the shares to $310 from $220. Among the noteworthy losers was social game maker King Digital (KING), which slid 3% after the stock was downgraded at Pacific Crest to Sector Perform from Outperform. Also lower following their earnings reports were Inovio (INO), which fell over 8%, and Gogo (GOGO), which dropped nearly 6%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 51.25, or 0.31%, to 16,605.18, the Nasdaq was up 38.19, or 0.87%, to 4,409.08, and the S&P 500 was up 10.12, or 0.52%, to 1,941.71.

15:58 EDTTSLATesla breaks support, levels to watch
Shares are ending near session lows, last at $236.76. Support is at the session low at $235.20. Resistance is at previous support at $238.49.
12:52 EDTTSLATesla shares sink after all-wheel drive model unveiling
Shares of Tesla (TSLA) are falling after the company's CEO, Elon Musk, introduced an all-wheel drive model and some autonomous driving features on a number of its vehicles. On October 2, Musk had teased on Twitter that Tesla would "unveil D, something else,' exciting investors. WHAT'S NEW: Musk last night said Tesla would enable consumers to buy an all-wheel drive version of the company's Model S electric vehicle. The all wheel drive feature will increase the speed and efficiency of vehicles, Musk said. It will also enable the cars to drive more effectively in poor driving conditions, the CEO stated. The feature will be offered on the company's new advanced Model S car, the P85D, which will cost $120,000. The feature can be added onto other Tesla vehicles for $4,000. Additionally, Musk announced that all new Model S vehicles will have a number of auto pilot features. Among other capabilities, the new vehicles will be able to change lanes and park on their own, the CEO said. ANALYST REACTION: The updates unveiled by Tesla largely add features already offered by other companies, Merrill Lynch analyst John Lovallo II wrote For example, Mercedes has been offering all wheel drive since 1985, and Subaru offers the technology as a standard feature on almost all of its vehicles, Lovallo stated. Several companies also offer the speed limit reading feature, the analyst reported. Tesla's ability to drive its share price up at will, exhibited by the rise in the stock following Musk's tweet, could create a significant risk for shareholders, the analyst warned. He kept an Underperform rating on the name. WHAT’S NOTABLE: Shares of Mobileye (MBLY), which develops components for automatic driver-assist systems, are falling today. Mobileye investors may be disappointed that Tesla did not offer more advanced autonomous driving features. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Tesla slumped 6% to $242 and Mobileye sank 7% to $50.50.

10:48 EDTKINGGlu drops despite Benchmark optimism about Kardashian game
Research firm Benchmark Co. upgraded digital video game maker Glu Mobile (GLUU) to Buy from Hold, based on optimism about the company's upcoming third quarter earnings report. WHAT'S NEW: Glu may report higher than expected third quarter sales and earnings before interest taxes depreciation and amortization on October 29, Benchmark analyst Mike Hickey wrote in a note to investors today. The company may also raise its fourth quarter guidance, Hickey believes. Glu's results are being lifted by the success of the company's "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood" game, the analyst believes. He has a $5.90 price target on the name. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Taking the opposite view on Glu Mobile in an article yesterday was a short-selling blog, TheStreetSweeper. The blog said it "wouldn't be surprised" if the company cut its Q4 guidance, as Kim Kardashian and other Glu games "are fading fast." Company insiders are "selling huge chinks" of the company's shares, added the blog. Northland Capital analyst Darren Aftahi yesterday countered by accusing TheStreetSweeper of "acting as a megaphone" for shorts in the name, trying to drive down the stock in a weak market, and producing an article that is "full of conjecture." The analyst said he thinks the company could beat Q3 revenue expectations by a large amount, potentially producing a "massive short squeeze." OTHERS TO WATCH: Other digital video game makers include Zynga (ZNGA) and King Digital (KING). PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Glu dropped 4% to $4.56.
