14:35 EDTLLYEarnings Watch: Lilly to report Q1 results amid patent expirations
Eli Lilly and Company (LLY) is scheduled to report first quarter earnings before the market open on Thursday, April 23 with a conference call scheduled for 9:00 am ET. Lilly is a global pharmaceutical manufacturer that also has an animal health business segment. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 77c on revenue of $4.62B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 64c-99c on revenue of $4.54B-$4.7B. LAST QUARTER: Eli Lilly reported fourth quarter EPS of 75c, compared to consensus estimates of 74c, on revenue of $5.12B against estimates of $5.2B. The company said it sees fiscal year 2015 EPS of $3.10-$3.20 on revenue of $19.5B-$20B. Lilly's CEO John Lechleiter commented on the quarter, "While Lilly's fourth quarter 2014 results continue to reflect the impact of patent expirations, we are moving to a period of growth led by diabetes, oncology and animal health. Despite the loss of significant revenue for Cymbalta and Evista following the expiration of our U.S. patents, we saw strong performance from many other products. At the same time, we made excellent progress with our innovation-based strategy, and we continue to advance our pipeline." STREET RESEARCH: On March 25, Suntrust raised its price target on Lilly shares to $95 from $80. After meeting with Eli Lilly's management, SunTrust said it expects the company's oncology and diabetes sales to double over the next five years. The firm is upbeat about the short-term outlook of the company's diabetes treatment, and says that its late stage autoimmune, Alzheimer's and cardiovascular treatments are advancing, while its Alzheimer's programs remain underappreciated. SunTrust said it expects the company's earnings CAGR to be in the mid teens between 2015-2020. It kept a Buy rating on Lilly shares. PRICE ACTION: Lilly shares are relatively flat since the company's last earnings report on January 30, and are trading up fractionally to $72.40 in midday trading ahead of Thursday's earnings release.

12:31 EDTMCDOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after having been on a bit of a see-saw during morning trading. The averages opened in positive territory, soon turned negative, then back into positive ground following the release of a better than expected existing home sales report. The housing data was followed by a lift in the averages, which remained in positive ground near noon. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., existing home sales rose 6.1% to a 5.19M rate in March, which was better than the expected 3.1% increase to a rate of 5.03M. Crude oil inventories built up by 5.32M barrels last week, which was more than the consensus forecast for a 3.2M barrel build. In Asia, Japan's Nikkei 225 average closed above 20,000 for the first time since April 2000. In Europe, Germany raised its economic growth forecast for 2015 to 1.8%, which was up from the 1.5% growth it said it expected in January. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of McDonald's (MCD) advanced 2% after the company reported headline earnings that missed expectations but also said it is developing a turnaround plan to improve its performance and deliver "enduring profitable growth" that it plans to share in the first week of May. Also rising after its quarterly report was another globally recognized brand, Coca-Cola (KO), whose shares gained 1% after its comparable earnings per share topped the consensus estimate. A third member of the Dow, Boeing (BA), slid over 2.5% after its earnings beat expectations but its revenue fell short of the consensus forecast... Visa (V) rose 5% and MasterCard (MA) advanced over 4% after China's State Council announced overnight that the country will regulate the market access for bankcard transaction clearing institutions, which analysts think might allow both companies to compete for the processing of domestic transactions in the country. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Angie's List (ANGI), which jumped 12% after the company reported it was profitable in the first quarter and announced an exclusive relationship that will see carpet manufacturer Shaw Industries give the company's members exclusive product offers. Also higher was ASML (ASML), which gained 11% after announcing that it has signed an agreement with one of its "major U.S. customers" to deliver a minimum of 15 ASML EUV, or Extreme Ultraviolet, lithography systems. Afterward, Summit Research said it thinks the most likely buyer is Intel (INTC), which the firm believes does not want to be left behind if TSMC (TSM) puts EUV to use in 10nm processing. Among the noteworthy losers was Natural Resource Partners (NRP), which dropped 19% after the company slashed its quarterly distribution by 75% to 9c per unit. Also lower following their earnings reports were ADTRAN (ADTN), which fell over 9%, Cree (CREE), which slid 9%, and Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), which declined 6%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 28.69, or 0.16%, to 17,978.28, the Nasdaq was up 6.66, or 0.13%, to 5,020.77, and the S&P 500 was up 5.24, or 0.25%, to 2,102.53.
