14:05 EDTORCL, NYX, ELOQ, AAPL, ICEMarket set to end week little changed as cliff fears offset strong data
Once again stocks are poised to finish the week little changed, as concerns about the looming fiscal cliff canceled out stronger than expected economic data... MACRO NEWS: House Speaker John Boehner decided not to hold a vote on his deficit reduction bill, after it became clear that the measure wouldn't pass the House due to opposition by Democrats and conservative Republicans. As of Friday afternoon, no solution to the looming fiscal cliff was visible, and investors were becoming more pessimistic about the chances of avoiding the cliff... On the other hand, several important pieces of U.S. economic data from November were better than expected. Existing home sales, durable goods orders, housing permits and personal income all beat expectations. But not all the economic data was bullish, as an index of consumer confidence for December, housing starts for November, and last week's new jobless claims were all slightly weaker than expected... COMPANY NEWS: Another positive development this week was the heating up of the M&A market. Among the bigger deals were the merger between IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) and the NYSE Euronext (NYX) and the acquisition of software as a service marketing company Eloqua (ELOQ) by Oracle (ORCL)... Oracle also reported results, and its second quarter EPS and revenue both came in above analysts' consensus estimates... A federal judge denied a request by Apple (AAPL) to ban the sales of a number of Samsung's smartphones.

06:28 EDTAAPLBillboard 200 chart to include on-demand streaming in rankings
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
05:38 EDTAAPLApple price target raised to $135 from $120 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster raised his price target for Apple shares to $135 from $120 after the firm's channel checks indicated that supply of the iPhone 6 and 6+ is "gradually improving vs. demand." Munster does not see risk to Apple's December quarter guidance as he believes the company factored supply constraints into its outlook. He thinks most consumers will wait to purchase an iPhone and maintains an Overweight rating on Apple. The stock closed yesterday down 80c to $114.67.
