16:29 EDTHMA, AAPL, KMX, BIDU, YHOO, FSLR, GBX, TITNOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply higher following trade data from China and the unexpectedly early release of the Fed's minutes from its last FOMC meeting. The Fed's minutes, which came out five hours earlier than originally planned, were slightly more hawkish than previous releases, but the meeting took place before last Friday's worse-than-expected jobs report. Each of the major averages logged gains through the session, with the S&P and Dow closing at all-time record highs... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Federal Reserve released the minutes from it last Federal Open Market Committee meeting at 9:00 am ET because they were leaked yesterday to trade groups and some members of Congress. The minutes showed continued discussion over the costs and benefits of the Fed's bond-buying program, but also said members would need to see signs of a sustained recovery before changing course. In China, a rare trade deficit of $880M was reported for March, as imports surged 14.1% from a year earlier, outpacing a 10% rise in exports... COMPANY NEWS: Earnings season picked up a little bit of steam, with a pre-market report from CarMax (KMX) sending its shares up $1.63, or 3.91%, to $43.31, while Titan Machinery (TITN) lost $3.67, or 14.04%, to $22.45 after its earnings missed expectations... Shares of Yahoo! (YHOO), up 37c, or 1.55%, to $24.20, and Apple (AAPL), up $8.71, or 2.04%, to $435.69 both advanced modestly after a Wall Street Journal report last night said the companies are in the early stages of talks about Yahoo! being more deeply integrated into the iPhone and iPad... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following analyst upgrades were Greenbrier (GBX), up $1.47, or 6.71%, to $23.38 after an upgrade to Buy at KeyBank, and Baidu (BIDU), up $5.20, or 6.13%, to $90.07 after the stock was upgraded to Buy at 86 Research. Among the noteworthy losers was Health Management Associates (HMA), which fell $2.06, or 16.36%, to $10.53 after its preliminary view of its quarterly results fell short of expectations. Also lower was First Solar (FSLR), down $3.03, or 7.7%, to $36.32 after a number of analysts mentioned its shares cautiously following yesterday's 45% gain on better than expected guidance... INDICES: The Dow was up 128.78, or 0.88%, to 14,802.24; the Nasdaq was up 59.39, or 1.83%, to 3,297.25; and the S&P 500 was up 19.12, or 1.22%, to 1,587.73.

06:20 EDTYHOOYahoo's goal of raising encryption could clash with advertising, WSJ reports
Yahoo's Chief Information Security Officer Alex Stamos announced new progress on efforts to beef up encryption although he admits there are limits to this encryption, reports the Wall Street Journal. The company could use HTTPS, which would block outsiders from watching data people submit, but Yahoo would then have to persuade every advertising network running ads to use the same encryption.

12:48 EDTAAPLGT Advanced rallies after Goldman raises price target
Shares of GT Advanced Technologies (GTAT) - which makes sapphire products and solar energy equipment - are climbing after Goldman Sachs raised its price target on the stock in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: Goldman Sachs analyst Brian Lee raised his 2015 and 2016 earnings per share estimates for GT Advanced, as he is more upbeat about the outlook for the company's equipment business. GT Advanced's deal to supply sapphire for upcoming Apple (AAPL) devices is worth $15 per share for GT if the deal goes as expected, and up to $25 if the deal exceeds expectations, contended Lee. The analyst raised his price target on the stock to $24 from $20 and kept a Buy rating on the shares. OTHERS TO WATCH: Rubicon Technology (RBCN) also makes sapphire. That stock was upgraded to Overweight from Neutral in a note to investors from JPMorgan yesterday. JPMorgan expected Rubicon to benefit from a pick-up in demand for LEDs and sapphire covers. The stock surged yesterday in the wake of the upgrade. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, GT Advanced climbed $1.13, or 6.5%, to $18.51, while Rubicon fell 2.8% to $12.62.
