13:16 EDTGOOGAngie's List retreats after Amazon reportedly launches local services site
Shares of Angie's List (ANGI) are sinking after The Wall Street Journal reported this morning that Amazon.com (AMZN) had launched a website that will connect consumers to local service providers. Angie's List connects users to local contractors and publishes consumers' reviews of contractors. WHAT'S NEW: Amazon.com launched its website featuring information about local contractors in New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle, The Journal reported, citing an unnamed source who was briefed on the company's plan. Called Amazon Local Services, the website is part of the e-commerce giant's attempt to compete with traditional stores, The Journal said. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Reuters reported last June that Amazon planned to launch a local services website. Last month, research firm Wunderlich said that Angie's List could be a logical takeover target for Amazon or eBay (EBAY). Wunderlich issued its note after The Financial Times reported that Angie's List had hired bankers to help it explore strategic options, including a possible sale of the company. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian wrote that Amazon's service should be appealing to users searching for local services or shopping for products that have to be serviced. Moreover, service providers should also find value in Amazon's website, Sebastian stated. Service providers will only have to pay Amazon a share of the revenue they receive from customers they obtain from the website, the analyst wrote. Also, Amazon's popularity will enable it to bring meaningful amounts of business to the service providers, Sebastian wrote. He kept a $340 price target and Outperform rating on Amazon shares. Sebastian also noted that the market is increasingly competitive, with Groupon (GRPN) and Yelp (YELP) among the other public companies in the space, and he said he expects Facebook (FB) and Google (GOOG) to build more local services over time. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Angie's List fell 4% to $6 and Amazon slid 1% to $332.50.

11:10 EDTAAPL, GOOGWorldwide tablet growth expected to slow to 7.2% in 2014, IDC says
The worldwide tablet market is expected to see a massive deceleration in 2014 with year-over-year growth slowing to 7.2%, down from 52.5% in 2013, according to a new forecast from International Data Corporation (IDC). At the core of this slowdown is the expectation that 2014 will represent the first full year of decline in Apple iPad shipments. Both the iPad and the overall market slowdown do not come as a surprise as device lifecycles for tablets have continued to lengthen, increasingly resembling those of PCs more than smartphones. "The tablet market continues to be impacted by a few major trends happening in relevant markets," said Ryan Reith, Program Director with IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Device Trackers. "In the early stages of the tablet market, device lifecycles were expected to resemble those of smartphones, with replacement occurring every 2-3 years. What has played out instead is that many tablet owners are holding onto their devices for more than 3 years and in some instances more than 4 years. We believe the two major drivers for longer than expected tablet lifecycles are legacy software support for older products, especially within iOS, and the increased use of smartphones for a variety of computing tasks." Publicly traded companies in the space include Samsung (SSNLF), Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG), Amazon.com (AMZN) and Barnes & Noble (BKS). Reference Link

16:34 EDTAAPLOn The Fly: Closing Wrap

The Dow and S&P moved in a narrow range and hugged the flat line, while the Nasdaq drifted steadily higher and added nearly 1% by the close of trade. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed national activity index fell to 0.14 in October, versus expectations for a reading of 0.33.

Overseas, the euro area’s largest economy, Germany, saw a business climate index advance to 104.7 in November from 103.2 in October, beating economists' prediction for a decline to a reading of 103. COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL) had a role in the Nasdaq's outperformance, as the tech giant climbed after a number of research firms, including Susquehanna, Cantor and KGI Research, were upbeat on the outlook for the company's performance during the holiday season. The iPhone maker's stock rose $2.15, or 1.85%, to close at $118.62 to close just below the 52-week high of $118.77 it hit late in the session...

Among the noteworthy losers was Ring Energy (REI), which fell $1.28, or 9.54%, to $12.14 after Canaccord downgraded the stock to Hold from Buy, citing the the recent decline in crude oil prices and the potential need for the company to raise capital. Also lower were shares of Potash (POT), which fell $2.23, or 6.09%, to $34.40, and Mosaic (MOS), which slid $1.75, or 3.71%, to $45.46 after Russia's Uralkali, the world's largest potash producer, was reported to be set to start repair work at part of its damaged mine.

Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday despite disappointing purchasing managers' index readings in both China and Europe.

ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell 2K to 291K in the week ended November 15, versus expectations for 280K first-time claims. The Consumer Prices Index was unchanged in October, versus expectations for a drop of 0.1%.

Markit's flash manufacturing PMI slipped 1.2 points to 54.7 in November, versus the consensus forecast for a 56.5 reading. Existing home sales rose 1.5% to a 5.26M rate in October, which beat expectations for a decline to a 5.15M unit rate. The index of leading indicators climbed 0.9% to 105.2 in October, beating expectations for a 0.5% increase. The Philadelphia Fed manufacturing index surged to 40.8 in November, easily topping the consensus expectation for a 18.0 reading. In Asia, the HSBC/Markit manufacturing PMI for China fell to a six-month low of 50.0 in the flash reading for November, which is down from a final reading of 50.4 in October and below the 50.3 consensus forecast. In Europe, Markit's flash eurozone PMI composite output index, which tracks surveys from both the manufacturing and services sectors, came in at 51.4 for November, which was down from 52.1 in October and represents the measure's lowest level in 16 months. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Best Buy (BBY) advanced 7% after its third quarter profit beat estimates and it reported that its domestic same-store sales grew 3.2%. The electronics retailer also said the sales trends it is seeing as its enters the critical fourth quarter are "encouraging from a top-line perspective."

Also higher following its own "beat and raise" quarterly report was Kirkland's (KIRK), which advanced 18%. Among the noteworthy losers was Liquidity Services (LQDT), which dropped 9% after its fourth quarter earnings missed expectations and the company said it will no longer give yearly guidance. Also lower was Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR), which dropped 6% after its first quarter profit outlook fell short of analysts’ consensus estimates and the company's Chief Financial Officer announced plans to depart.

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

After Morgan Stanley suggested that BlackBerry may miss its revenue target for software sales, the forecasting skills of BlackBerry CEO John Chen may come under scrutiny, says the Wall Street Journal. According to the report, Chen, known as a turnaround expert, has said the smartphone maker will double its software sales to $500M in its next fiscal year. The Morgan Stanley analyst who wrote the report, James Faucette, said in the note, “We are skeptical that BlackBerry will be able to achieve that level of success, particularly with a new product platform, new pricing and with a still very damaged brand,” added the Wall Street Journal.

12:18 EDTBBRYBlackBerry sinks after Morgan Stanley cuts to Underweight
Shares of BlackBerry (BBRY) are sinking after Morgan Stanley downgraded the stock to Underweight, saying that the market had become too optimistic about the outlook for the company's software and messaging platform. WHAT'S NEW: BlackBerry's valuation indicates that the market expects the company's software revenue and messaging revenue to increase by $250M and $100M, respectively, in fiscal 2016, Morgan Stanley analyst James Faucette wrote in a note to investors before the market opened today. These expectations are consistent with the targets set by the device maker's CEO, John Chen, Faucette stated. But the outlook "seems excessive," as they imply that BlackBerry will retain all of its enterprise subscribers, and convince them to pay the company three times more money than now, the analyst stated. BlackBerry will not "gain relevancy in the enterprise mobile management software market and will continue to lose enterprise subscribers," Faucette believes. He downgraded the stock to Underweight from Equal Weight and set a $7 price target on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In September, BlackBerry reported that it had issued 3.4M licenses for its BES10 mobile device management system during its September quarter representing a nearly threefold increase over the previous quarter. The company stated that BlackBerry Messenger had 91M users, up from 85M users the previous quarter. In a note to investors on November 14, JPMorgan raised its price target on the stock to $13 from $10. The company's product announcements on November 13 increased the chances that its software strategy will work, according to the firm. JPMorgan added, however, that BlackBerry still had a long road back to health, and kept a Neutral rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, BlackBerry slid 5% to $10.20.

Genzyme, a Sanofi company, announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Lemtrada, alemtuzumab, for the treatment of patients with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis. Because of its safety profile, the use of Lemtrada should generally be reserved for patients who have had an inadequate response to two or more drugs indicated for the treatment of MS. “Today’s approval is the culmination of more than a decade of work by Genzyme to develop Lemtrada,” said Genzyme President and CEO, David Meeker. “Lemtrada demonstrated superior efficacy over Rebif on annualized relapse rates in the two studies which were the basis for approval. A comprehensive risk evaluation and mitigation strategy will be instituted in order to help detect and manage the serious risks identified with treatment.” The FDA approval of Lemtrada is based on two pivotal randomized Phase III open-label rater-blinded studies comparing treatment with Lemtrada to Rebif in patients with relapsing remitting MS who were either new to treatment or who had relapsed while on prior therapy . In CARE-MS I, Lemtrada was significantly more effective than interferon beta-1a at reducing annualized relapse rates; the difference observed in slowing disability progression did not reach statistical significance. In CARE-MS II, Lemtrada was significantly more effective than interferon beta-1a at reducing annualized relapse rates, and accumulation of disability was significantly slowed in patients given Lemtrada vs. interferon beta-1a. The clinical development program for Lemtrada involved nearly 1,500 patients with more than 6,400 patient-years of safety follow-up. “The unmet need in MS remains high,” said Edward Fox, M.D., Ph.D., Director of the Multiple Sclerosis Clinic of Central Texas. “It is a great day for people living with relapsing forms of MS in the United States, who will now have access to this new meaningful treatment”.

Shares of BlackBerry (BBRY) hit a new 52-week high after the company announced three new partnership deals. The company is slated to hold its analyst day today, starting at 3:30 PM ET. WHAT'S NEW: BlackBerry announced that it would partner with Samsung to provide a security solution for the South Korean company's mobile devices that utilize Google's (GOOG) Android operating system. Under the deal, BlackBerry’s BES12, an Enterprise Mobility Management system, or EMM that was launched today, will be integrated with some of Samgung's Galaxy smartphones and tablets. BES 12 "securely manages devices from all of the major enterprise mobile platforms" and "will help organizations securely connect employees with each other and with the corporate information and machines” they need, BlackBerry stated. Also today, Blackberry announced that it would connect its EMM solutions to Salesforce's (CRM) top customer relationship management platform. "This agreement will allow Salesforce and BlackBerry joint customers to run their businesses from their phone while complying with specific industry regulations," said Vivek Kundra, a Salesforce Executive Vice President in a statement. "BlackBerry has an excellent reputation in security and networks, and when matched with the Salesforce Customer Success Platform, public sector organizations can use their mobile devices to connect with customers in a whole new way," added Kundra. Finally, BlackBerry announced that Brightstar would distribute BES 12. BlackBerry described Brightstar as "the world's largest wireless distribution company and leader in services for the wireless industry." WHAT'S NOTABLE: BES12 is expected to compete with Apple (AAPL) in the enterprise space. Apple earlier this year announced that it was partnering with IBM (IBM) in an effort to sell more products to corporate customers. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, BlackBerry jumped 6% to $11.95. Earlier today the shares set a new 52-week high of $12.05.

J.C. Penney (JCP) is scheduled to report third quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, November 12, with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. J.C. Penney operates about 1,100 retail stores and jcp.com. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for a loss per share of (80c) on revenue of $2.81B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is (95c)-(54c) on revenue of $2.72B-$2.93B. LAST QUARTER: J.C. Penney reported second quarter adjusted EPS of (75c) against estimates for (93c), on revenue of $2.8B against estimates for $2.79B. Comparable store sales increased 6% for the quarter and online sales through jcp.com were up 16.7% from the year-ago period to $249M. On its Q2 earnings conference call, the company said that expected a "profitable" sales in the back-to-school season, adding that the company could see some "anomalies" in expense during Q3. NEWS: During the quarter, J.C. Penney announced the appointment of Marvin Ellison, EVP of stores at Home Depot (HD), as president and CEO-Designee, effective November 1. Ellison will also join the board, and succeed Myron E. Ullman, III as CEO of the company on August 1, 2015, at which time Ullman will become executive chairman of the board for a period of one year. At its analyst day in October, the retailer lowered its Q3 SSS view to low single digit growth from its previous view of mid single digit growth. J.C. Penney also warned investors that its September sales were weaker than expected. Despite lowering its SSS forecast, the retailer reaffirmed the rest of its quarterly guidance, including gross margins and SG&A expenses, and maintained all of its fiscal year 2014 guidance metrics, including mid-single digit SSS growth and positive free cash flow. STREET RESEARCH: Cleveland Research said J.C. Penney's challenging sales trends continued in October and is positioning to increase promotional activity during the holiday season. Wells Fargo, which has an Underperform rating on the stock, said that Ellison lacks expertise in apparel and accessories, where J.C. Penney is having a tough time. J.C. Penney shares could drop 35% if the company misses on sales growth estimates, Barron's said. PRICE ACTION: Over the last three months, J.C. Penney shares are down almost 20%. In morning trading today ahead of tonight's Q3 report, J. C. Penney's stock is up almost 6% to $7.61.
