16:23 EDTMSFT, RVBD, ETFC, HBI, BLOX, PFPT, AAPL, GE, MCD, BAC, TPXOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed, with one tech heavyweight helping the Dow and another dragging on the Nasdaq. Stock futures were moderately higher following positive confidence data out of Germany, solid retail sales data in the U.K., and good earnings reports from some of the country’s largest corporations. The market opened higher but immediately found a level where the averages sat as investors digested the earnings news and subsequent conference calls. By mid-morning, however, the market picked up speed to the upside and reached its session highs. As the news flow began to slow, the market drifted lower as it struggled to hold onto its gains, with the Nasdaq finally falling into the red under the selling pressure... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., little economic data of note was reported. In Europe, a measure of German business confidence climbed to 109.9, marking its sixth consecutive month of increase, while Spanish 10-year bond yields rose above 6%... COMPANY NEWS: Microsoft (MSFT) led the Dow higher, rising $1.41, or 4.55%, to $32.42, following its report of sales and profits that beat expectations. Weighing on the Dow, however, were shares of Bank of America (BAC), which slid 41c, or 4.68%, to $8.36, after a downgrade to a Sell rating by CLSA's Mike Mayo. Among other Dow components, McDonald's (MCD) and General Electric (GE) both advanced following their earnings reports... The sell-off in shares of Apple (AAPL) continued ahead of the company's earnings report, due Tuesday, dragging the Nasdaq lower with it... Shares of Proofpoint (PFPT), an enterprise security company, and Infoblox (BLOX), an infrastructure software developer, both moved higher following their initial public offerings. Proofpoint priced at $13 and closed up $1.08, or 8.31%, to $14.08, while Infoblox priced at $16 and rose $5.44, or 34.00%, to $21.44... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Hanesbrands (HBI), up $3.08, or 11.43%, to $30.02, after its quarterly losses were not as steep as expected and the company backed its full year forecast, and E-Trade (ETFC), up 60c, or 6.08%, to $10.48, following its report of adjusted earnings and revenues that beat consensus. Noteworthy losers included Riverbed (RVBD), down $8.01, or 28.75%, to $19.85, after being downgraded by at least seven firms following its disappointing results and guidance, and Tempur-Pedic (TPX), down $17.22, or 20.56%, to $66.53, after its guidance fell short of expectations... INDICES: The Dow rose 65.16, or 0.50%, to 13,029.26; the Nasdaq fell 7.11, or 0.24%, to 3,000.45; and the S&P 500 gained 1.61, or 0.12%, to 1,378.53.

07:20 EDTBACBig banks seen losing reserve release cushion, Reuters says
Releasing loan-loss reserves has helped U.S. big banks weather a period of weak loan demand and lower fee income, but Q2 results from the banks may see less benefit from the practice as loss rates and reserves near their lower limits, said Reuters. Publicly traded companies in the space include Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Reference Link
