16:18 EDTKO, GS, JNJ, SRSL, DTSI, FSLR, AMTG, WHROn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were significantly higher, as a trio of earnings reports and a boost in the IMF's view of global growth prospects powered the market's rise. Stock futures were higher in pre-market trading on the strength of positive earnings reports from Coca-Cola (KO), Goldman Sachs (GS), and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ). The domestic economic data, which included fewer than expected housing starts and no increase in industrial production, was overshadowed by increased global and U.S. growth forecasts by the International Monetary Fund. With the earnings season beginning in earnest this week, investors appeared bullish about the prospects for solid numbers this quarter, if today's trading is taken as an indication... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts for the month of March decreased 5.8%, versus expectations of an increase of 1%, but the number of building permits issued rose 4.5%, versus expectations of a decrease of 0.7%. Industrial production was reportedly flat in March, versus expectations for a 0.3% increase. Capacity utilization was in line with forecasts at 78.6%. In Europe, a German investor confidence survey was better than expected and Spanish benchmark yields eased back below 6%. Also, the International Monetary Fund said it sees world output growing 3.5% in 2012, raising its projection for United States growth to 2.1%. The IMF also said it sees growth in China slowing to 8.2% and real GDP in the euro area contracting in the first half of 2012 but then recovering... COMPANY NEWS: Coca Cola and Goldman Sachs both reported earnings and revenue that beat the Street's expectations, though Coke saw more of a favorable reaction from investors. Coca Cola shares rose 2.08% to $73.95 after its report, while Goldman fell 0.74% to $116.86. Johnson and Johnson also beat consensus for adjusted earnings, but its revenue came in below forecasts. Shares rose 0.38% to $64.22, making it one of the Dow's laggards during a session that saw all 30 stocks in the index post gains... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were SRS Labs (SRSL), up $2.53, or 36.88%, to $9.39, after agreeing to be acquired by DTS, Inc. (DTSI) in a cash-and-stock transaction valued at $9.50 per share, and First Solar (FSLR), up $2.14, or 10.28%, to $22.96, following its announcement of plans to cut its global workforce by approximately 2,000 positions, or about 30%, in response to conditions in Europe. Noteworthy losers included Apollo Residential Mortgage (AMTG), down $1.37, or 7.16%, to $17.76, after filing to sell 13.9M shares of its common stock, and Whirlpool (WHR), down $3.03, or 4.27%, to $68.00, after the International Trade Commission voted against imposing duties on refrigerators produced in South Korea and Mexico... INDICES: The Dow gained 194.13, or 1.50%, to 13,115.54; the Nasdaq rose 54.42, or 1.82%, to 3,042.82; and the S&P 500 added 21.21, or 1.55%, to 1,390.78.

David Winters, CEO of Wintergreen Advisers, said the response by The Coca-Cola Company to Wintergreen’s criticism of its proposed 2014 equity compensation plan was “disappointing, defensive and inadequate.” Mr. Winters made the comments during a webcast for fiduciaries, analysts and the media in which he provided details of Wintergreen’s analysis of the Coca-Cola 2014 Equity Plan.
