A BBC documentary has accused Apple suppliers of violating labor laws, reports the Wall Street Journal. In a documentary that aired this week, the BBC said undercover reporters found that Taiwan’s Pegatron, which makes some iPhones, was violating Apple’s guidelines by mandating overtime for workers, requiring workers to attend meetings without pay and forcing workers to live in overcrowded dormitories. The documentary also provided evidence that tin from illegal mines in Indonesia could be making its way into Apple’s supply chain. Reference Link

11:54 EDTORCLRed Hat soars to 52-week high after beat and raise quarter
Shares of open source software solutions provider Red Hat (RHT) are rallying after the company’s third quarter results surpassed analysts’ consensus estimates and it raised its outlook for fiscal 2015. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Red Hat reported Q3 adjusted earnings per share of 42c and revenue of $455.9M, topping analysts’ consensus estimates of 40c and $451.39M, respectively. Q3 subscription revenue was $395M, up 15% year-over-year, while operating cash flow of $133M was up 40% year-over-year. CFO Charlie Peters noted that strong performance in the quarter was driven by outstanding sales execution. He said, “performance this quarter with large deals was exceptional, setting new records in number of deals over $5M in a quarter and deals over $10M in a Q3.” Peters also announced his intention to retire in the next twelve months. WHAT’S NOTABLE: Looking ahead to Q4, Red Hat forecast EPS of 40c-41c and revenue of $456M-$459M, compared to consensus of 41c and $459.39M, respectively. The company raised its outlook for FY15 EPS to $1.57-$1.58 from $1.53-$1.55, versus consensus of $1.54. It also boosted the bottom end its FY15 revenue outlook to $1.78B-$1.79B from $1.77B-$1.79B, compared to the consensus of $1.78B. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, four research firms - Piper Jaffray, Stifel, UBS, and Oppenheimer - all raised their respective price targets on Red Hat. Each cited the company’s stronger than expected Q3 results. All four maintained a Buy or equivalent rating on the shares and among the four Oppenheimer took its price target up to the highest level, increasing its target on Red Hat to $80 from $74. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Red Hat rose $6.98, or 11.4%, to $68.48 on nearly three times its average daily trading volume. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a fresh 52-week high of $70.13. Including today's advance, the shares have gained approximately 40% over the past 12 months.

16:26 EDTORCLOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session sharply higher and remained that way for the entire session. The strength was attributed to investor enthusiasm over statements from the Fed about being patient in their approach to raising interest rates. Over the past couple of weeks the price of oil has often dictated the direction of equities, but that was not the case today as a drop in WTI and Brent crude was not followed by a dip in the equity averages. With year-end approaching, money managers may be chasing performance, but they also may be adjusting portfolio’s ahead of tomorrow’s quadruple witching, when market index futures, market index options, stock options, and stock futures all expire. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell 6K to 289K in the week ended December 13, versus expectations for 295K first-time claims. Markit's flash December Services PMI reading came in at 53.6, which was below the consensus 56.3 forecast. The Philadelphia Fed survey of business conditions index drop to 24.5 in December from November's unexpectedly high 40.8 reading, though the steep pullback was in-line with the consensus forecast. The November index of leading economic indicators rose 0.6%, as expected. In Europe, U.K. retail sales including auto fuel increased 1.6% in November, widely topping economists' forecast for a 0.4% gain. Germany's Ifo business climate index advanced to 105.5 in December from 104.7 in the prior month, narrowly topping expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Oracle (ORCL) rallied $4.19, or 10.18%, to $45.35 after the company’s second quarter results surpassed consensus estimates. Analyst commentary was mixed, with research firms Canaccord and FBR Capital raising their price targets on the stock to $50 and $48, respectively, while JPMorgan said it expects consensus estimates for Oracle to be reduced and Oppenheimer said that it thinks the transition to the cloud is increasing pressure on the company's financial model and restraining EPS growth. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was OvaScience (OVAS), which rose $8.26, or 23.63%, to $43.22 after the company said it has achieved its 2014 corporate goals to advance its three fertility treatment options and its stock was upgraded to Outperform at Wedbush. Also higher was Tetraphase Pharmaceuticals (TTPH), which gained $4.81, or 14.49%, to $38.00 after a study of the company's eravacycline antibiotic met its primary endpoint and more than one research firm said the trial results make the company a more likely takeover target. Among the noteworthy losers was Silicon Image (SIMG), which dropped $1.84, or 27.3%, to $4.90 after the company warned it expects a year-over-year revenue decline in 2015 of about 10% due to a reduction in mobile design wins at one of its largest customers. Also lower were shares of RCS Capital (RCAP), which fell $1.81, or 15.39%, to $9.95 after its Executive Chairman of the Board, Nicholas Schorsch, was reportedly accused of directing two executives at American Realty Capital Properties (ARCP), where he was formerly the Chairman, to manipulate quarterly financial results. INDEXES: The Dow gained 421.28, or 2.43%, to 17,778.15, the Nasdaq advanced 104.08, or 2.24%, to 4,748.40, and the S&P 500 rose 48.34, or 2.4%, to 2,061.23.
