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.

10:56 EDTFBFed calls small cap social media, biotech valuations 'stretched'
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve in its Monetary Policy Report dated today said valuation metrics in "some sectors" appear substantially stretched, "particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year." A later part in the document reads, "Equity valuations of smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms appear to be stretched, with ratios of prices to forward earnings remaining high relative to historical norms." The specific targeting of sectors by the Fed seems to be having an impact on stocks in the social media and biotech spaces. Shares of Yelp (YELP) are down over 5% to $67.51, while Twitter (TWTR) and Facebook (FB) are each down 2%. Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) are leading the biotech space lower with pullbacks of greater than 1%.
10:33 EDTLNKD, FBFacebook, Twitter slip following cautious valuation comments from Fed
Shares of a number of companies in the social media and biotech industries moved lower following the circulation of cautious comments about their stock valuations that were included in the Federal Reserve's latest Monetary Policy Report. WHAT'S NEW: In the report, presented by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve and signed on behalf of the governors by Chair Janet Yellen, the central bank wrote that some broad equity price indexes have increased to all-time highs in nominal terms since the end of 2013, but that valuation measures for the overall market in early July were "generally at levels not far above their historical averages." However, the Fed's report also cautioned that valuation metrics in some sectors do appear substantially "stretched," particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year. As support for its assessment, the Fed noted that ratios of prices to forward earnings for "smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms" remain "high relative to historical norms." PRICE ACTION: Following the circulation of the comments in the Fed report, shares of Facebook (FB) are down 88c, or 1.3%, to $67.02, Twitter (TWTR) is down 24c, or 0.6%, to $38.07 and LinkedIn (LNKD), is down 21c, or 0.1%, to $159.57. Shares of some biotechnology companies including Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) also ticked lower following the circulation of the comments from the Fed's report.

The Federal Communications Commission's has received more than 677K comments so far from the public on its proposed 'net-neutrality' rules for how broadband providers can treat content traveling over their networks and a random sampling of the input suggests that the agency will have work to do to sell the plan, according to The Wall Street Journal. Companies that provide broadband Internet service include Comcast (CMCSA), AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ) Time Warner Cable (TWC), and Cablevision (CVC). Netflix (NFLX) sends a great deal of content over the Internet and strongly supports net neutrality. Reference Link
