16:29 EDTKMX, TITN, YHOO, AAPL, GBX, BIDU, HMA, FSLROn 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.

12:13 EDTYHOOYahoo upgraded as BGC sees higher chances for tax efficient monetization
Research firm BGC Partners upgraded its rating on Yahoo (YHOO) to Buy from Hold, saying that the chances of the company monetizing its assets in a more tax efficient manner have increased now that Alibaba (BABA) has come public. Among the possible scenarios, Yahoo may be acquired by Alibaba, the firm added. WHAT'S NEW: Yahoo's chances of paying a relatively low tax rate on the sale of its stakes in Alibaba and Yahoo Japan, a Japanese Internet company, have risen, BGC Financial analyst Colin Gillis stated. Yahoo could owe up to $15B of taxes on its sale of the assets, the analyst estimated. If Yahoo pays full tax liability, its stakes would be worth $43.5B. If it pays no taxes, the assets would be worth $58.5B, he estimated. Gillis set his price target on Yahoo at $50, representing the midpoint of the two scenarios, he stated. Among various scenarios that could play out, Alibaba could choose to buy Yahoo and subsequently unload Yahoo's core business and the American company's stake in Yahoo Japan, the analyst said. Yahoo shareholders could receive cash and shares of Alibaba as part of such a deal, Gillis stated. If Yahoo is not acquired by Alibaba, the American company should combine with AOL (AOL), as recently proposed by activist investor Starboard Value, Gillis contended. Merging with AOL could accelerate Yahoo's revenue growth by over 50% and increase its EBITDA by over 35%, Gillis estimated. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Yahoo fell 1% to $39.18.
