16:29 EDTFSLR, GBX, TITN, HMA, AAPL, KMX, BIDU, YHOOOn 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.

10:44 EDTYHOO, AAPLNetflix retreats after cut to sell on competition, cost concerns
The shares of Netflix (NFLX) are falling after research firm Evercore ISI downgraded the stock to Sell from Hold. Increased competition will force the company to increase its investments and the return from those investments is uncertain, the firm contends. WHAT'S NEW: In the U.S., technological advancements are enabling content providers to sell their programming to a wider range of Internet video distributors, Evercore ISI analyst Ken Sena wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Moreover, content providers themselves are now able to stream more of their programming online and obtain higher profits from doing so, Sena reported. The analyst noted that Apple (AAPL) recently obtained a three month exclusive deal to stream content form Time Warner's (TWX) HBO Now, while Yahoo (YHOO), Amazon (AMZN), and Hulu (DIS, CMCSA, NWSA) are all reportedly interested in obtaining streaming rights to "Seinfeld." Netflix's international expansion will not be sufficient to offset the increased competition, especially because foreign viewers are likely to watch less TV and be less interested in paying for TV content, the analyst believes. Furthermore, Netflix will face more competition from other Internet TV services overseas than in the U.S., according to Sena, who cut his 2015 consolidated operating income estimate for the company by 26% to $381M from $517M previously. In addition to cutting his rating, Sena lowered his price target on the shares to $380 from $450. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Netflix sank $16, or 3.7%, to $422.
