16:21 EDTNOK, ROVI, AMZN, FB, NFLX, LNKD, CTRP, QUNR, GIMOOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher, recovering just a bit of what was lost in the last two sessions. The Nasdaq, which had been a laggard in recent trade, posted the session's largest gains. Alcoa (AA), the traditional marker for the beginning of corporate earnings season, is set to report after the market close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: The NFIB's small business optimism index increased to 93.4 in March from a prior reading of 91.4, slightly beating expectations. The number of job openings was reported to have risen to 4.17M in February from a revised estimate of 3.87M in the prior month. The International Monetary Fund trimmed its outlook for global economic growth ahead of the spring World Bank meetings later this week. The IMF now forecasts that the world economy will expand 3.6% this year, which is a slight downgrade from its 3.7% estimate in January. COMPANY NEWS: New York-listed Nokia (NOK) shares gained 36c, or 4.99%, to $7.58 after a deal to sell substantially all of its Devices & Services business to Microsoft (MSFT) received regulatory approval in China... A number of tech's high-fliers that have been notably weak in the last month of trade, including Amazon (AMZN), Facebook (FB), Netflix (NFLX) and LinkedIn (LNKD), advanced more than 2% as the Nasdaq lead the market's gains after serving as a laggard in recent sessions. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Chinese travel website operators Ctrip.com (CTRP), up $5.23, or 10.41%, to $55.48, and Qunar (QUNR), up $3.94, or 14.65%, to $30.84, after a report from Bloomberg said the companies are in talks on a deal that could result in a partnership or potentially a full merger. Among the noteworthy losers was Gigamon (GIMO), which lost $8.89, or 33.93%, to $17.31 after the company lowered its first quarter revenue outlook largely based on an expected large transaction from an existing customer in EMEA that did not occur. Also lower was Rovi (ROVI), which fell $2.76, or 11.87%, to $20.50 after an appeals court upheld a ruling that said Amazon did not infringe the company's patents related to television program guides. INDEXES: The Dow was up 10.27, or 0.06%, to 16,256.14, the Nasdaq was up 33.23, or 0.81%, to 4,112.99, and the S&P 500 was up 6.92, or 0.38%, to 1,851.96.

08:50 EDTNFLXNetflix charging extra for 4K Ultra HD content, Variety reports
Netflix will require subscribers to pay its most expensive service tier for 4K Ultra HD content, reports Variety. Subscribers must sign up for the "family" plan at $11.99 monthly, which allows for simultaneous streaming of up to four programs. The reason for the change was that producing and acquiring 4K content costs more that conventional HD, so it has repositioned Ultra HD as a premium offering. Reference Link
