16:20 EDTMSFTOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street gained after China's central bank cut interest rates for the first time in over two years to bolster its economy. Additionally, the head of Europe's central bank said he was determined to do what is needed to ensure the area's economy does not once again fall into crisis. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Kansas City Fed manufacturing index for November had a reading of 7, compared to the consensus forecast for a reading of 6. In Asia, the People's Bank of China unexpectedly cut interest rates, slashing the one-year lending rate by 40 basis points and the one-year deposit rate by 25 basis points. The move, which was the central bank's first interest rate cut since 2012, surprised markets around the globe. In Europe, European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said indicators have been declining to levels he would deem "excessively low" and that he is determined to use more aggressive measures, such as large scale asset purchases, as needed. COMPANY NEWS: Microsoft (MSFT) was the worst performer on the Dow after Jefferies initiated coverage of the stock with an Underperform rating. Microsoft's stock has rallied 30% in the last year, but the company is still facing the same fundamental problems as in previous years, Jefferies analyst John DiFucci wrote. He set a $40 price target on the shares, which slipped 74c, or 1.5%, to $47.97. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Ross Stores (ROST), which advanced $6.06, or 7.28%, to $89.27 after the company reported stronger than expected Q3 results. Also higher were shares of Caterpillar (CAT), which rose $4.36, or 4.27%, to $106.45 amid the quantitative easing actions taken abroad and after research firm Stifel initiated coverage of the stock with a Buy rating. Among the noteworthy losers was GameStop (GME), which sunk $5.68, or 13.05%, to $37.86 after the video game retailer's third quarter results, as well as its fourth quarter and full year profit forecasts, trailed consensus estimates. Also lower were shares of The Gap (GPS), which dropped $1.68, or 4.19%, to $38.46 after the owner of Banana Republic, Old Navy and its namesake clothing brand lowered its fiscal year profit outlook. INDEXES: The Dow rose 91.06, or 0.5%, to 17,810.06, the Nasdaq gained 11.10, or 0.24%, to 4,712.97, and the S&P 500 added 10.75, or 0.52%, to 2,063.50.

16:40 EDTMSFTJefferies says new Microsoft looks like old, starts with Underperform
Jefferies initiated shares of Microsoft with an Underperform rating after the closing bell, saying the "new" Microsoft will look very much like the "old" Microsoft for some time. The firm attributes the 30% rally in shares over the past year to optimism around new management, but it thinks the tech giant's fundamentals remain challenged despite its focus on cloud and mobile given its dependency on the PC market. Jefferies put a $40 price target on the stock. Microsoft closed the trading day up 48c to $48.70.

06:28 EDTMSFTBillboard 200 chart to include on-demand streaming in rankings
The Billboard 200 albums chart will premiere its biggest upgrade in more than 23 years, transforming from a pure sales-based ranking to one measuring multi-metric consumption. Beginning with the top 10 revealed on Wednesday, Dec. 3, on Billboard.com, the chart, which currently tracks the top 200 albums of the week by sales alone, will be the first to include on-demand streaming and digital track sales -- as measured by Nielsen Entertainment (NLSN) -- by way of a new algorithm. It is the most substantial methodology update since May 1991, when Billboard first used Nielsen's point-of-sale data -- SoundScan -- to measure album sales. The updated Billboard 200 will utilize accepted industry benchmarks for digital and streaming data, equating 10 digital track sales from an album to one equivalent album sale, and 1,500 song streams from an album to one equivalent album sale. All of the major on-demand audio subscription services are considered, including Spotify, Beats Music (AAPL), Google Play (GOOG) and Xbox Music (MSFT). Reference Link
