13:00 EDTGESOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, with Nasdaq slightly higher and the Dow and S&P 500 both down a bit more than 0.5%. The day’s economic reports were generally benign and are likely less significant to the trading action than participants having had some time to digest yesterday’s Fed comments. Immediately after the Fed's policy statement yesterday, the U.S. dollar fell as low as 1.10 against the euro, but that move was almost entirely reversed overnight. The dollar was back near pre-Fed levels against the euro early this morning, and similar moves were seen in pairs of the dollar and other major currencies. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose 1K to 291K in the week ended March 14, which nearly matched the consensus 293K forecast. The current account deficit widened to $113.5B in Q4 from a revised deficit of $98.9B in Q3. The leading indicators for February rose 0.2% to 121.4, which was in-line with expectations. The Philadelphia Fed business outlook survey ticked down to a 5.0 one-year low from 5.2 in February, missing expectations for it to have risen a 7.0 reading. In Europe, the Swiss National Bank left rates unchanged, cut its growth forecasts for the country's economy, said that it will intervene in currency markets as needed since it believes the Swiss Franc remains overvalued. COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL) joined the Dow Jones Industrial Average today, replacing AT&T (T). Shares of the iPhone maker were down 0.5% near midday, while AT&T stock fell a bit more than 1%... Shares of coffee giant Starbucks (SBUX) hit a new all-time high of $98.50 earlier this afternoon following the company's investor day meeting yesterday. In conjunction with its meeting, Starbucks reaffirmed its goal to grow its market cap to $100B, unveiled plans for two pilots of delivery services, announced that its board has declared the sixth two-for-one split of the company’s stock since its IPO in 1992 and said it has entered into an agreement for Tingyi to manufacture and expand the distribution of Starbucks ready-to-drink products throughout mainland China. Goldman Sachs and Wells Fargo both issued upbeat notes on the stock today, saying that the coffee retailer's shares can continue to climb. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Coronado Biosciences (CNDO), which gained 42% after announcing the formation of a new company, Mustang Therapeutics, focused on Chimeric Antigen Receptor, or CAR-T, technology. The company also announced a licensing agreement with NeuPharma for EGFR inhibitors. Also higher was Guess (GES), which gained 15% after reporting higher than expected profits for its fiscal fourth quarter. Among the noteworthy losers was Transocean (RIG), which fell 6% after having announced last night that four of its 5th generation UDW drillships will be cold stacked and the contract with ENI (E) for the Transocean Amirante was terminated. Transocean also said it intends to scrap four rigs, noting that with those it has announced plans to scrap a total of 16 floaters. Also lower following its earnings report was diversified apparel company Vince Holding (VNCE), which fell 16%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 128.51, or 0.71%, to 17,947.68, the Nasdaq was up 3.15, or 0.06%, to 4,985.98, and the S&P 500 was down 13.36, or 0.64%, to 2,086.14.

10:02 EDTGESGuess extends its post-earnings rally, levels to watch
The shares were strong performers in the after hours session yesterday following stronger than expected earnings. That rally is extending today with the shares up over 14% yto $19.11. At that price, next resistance is at $19.79. Support is at the 50-day moving average at $18.74. The 50-day has been a proxy for a hand-drawn downtrend resistance line since early 2014. A continued rise above it would turn the longer-term trend bullish.

16:53 EDTGESGuess sees currency headwind in 2016
Paul Marciano, CEO, commented, "Turning to the outlook for fiscal year 2016, currencies will definitely be a headwind if they stay at current levels. But, as always, we will remain focused on what we can control, like our North America real estate realignment, providing a unique customer experience within our stores, and tightly managing our costs and inventory levels. We will continue investing in our omni-channel strategy globally and expect it to be a growth vehicle for fiscal 2016. We will also continue to leverage the Marciano brand in our North America Guess stores, and I am very confident in our upcoming product lines for fiscal 2016. Of course, all of these efforts are done with two key priorities in mind: improve the profitability of the Company while at the same time protecting our key asset, the Guess Brand."

12:38 EDTORCLOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday ahead of the conclusion of the Federal Reserve's latest rate setting meeting and the central bank's accompanying announcements. The averages began the session in negative territory and have been range-bound throughout the morning. The Dow was down triple digits once again, making 8 consecutive days that the blue chip index has seen a triple digit move. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the DOE petroleum inventory reports showed a 9.6M barrel rise in crude stocks in the week of March 13, versus expectations for a 4.4M build. The day's big economic news is yet to come, with the Fed's FOMC meeting announcement due at 2:00 pm EDT and Fed Chair Yellen holding a press conference a half hour later. Elsewhere, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unexpectedly defeated his main challenger in Israel’s election and his Likud party appears set to capture more parliament seats. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of FedEx (FDX) slid 2.5% after the shipping giant reported earnings that beat estimates, but revenue that fell short of the consensus forecast, for its third fiscal quarter. FedEx noted that it expects to deliver "record" yearly earnings for the current fiscal year and next fiscal year as well... Oracle (ORCL) shares rose 2.5% after the company's third quarter profits matched expectations and it raised its quarterly dividend 25%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Vitesse Semiconductor (VTSS), which jumped 37% after the company agreed to be acquired for $5.28 per share in cash by Microsemi (MSCC). Also higher was Retrophin (RTRX), which rose 28% after the company said it will exercise its right to purchase from Asklepion Pharmaceuticals all worldwide rights, titles, and ownership of Cholbam after the FDA approved the drug for the treatment of pediatric and adult patients with bile acid synthesis disorders due to single enzyme defects and for patients with peroxisomal disorders. Among the noteworthy losers was Willbros Group (WG), which dropped 55% and was downgraded to Underperform at DA Davidson after announcing its earnings report will be delayed and the company is in potential non-compliance with debt covenants. Also lower following their earnings reports were Nektar Therapeutics (NKTR), which fell 15% after the company's Phase III BEACON metastatic breast cancer study missed its primary endpoint. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 105.02, or 0.59%, to 17,744.06, the Nasdaq was down 12.45, or 0.25%, to 4,924.99, and the S&P 500 was down 7.69, or 0.37%, to 2,066.59.

10:21 EDTCSCOVicor says SynQor power converter claims held to be invalid
In a unanimous decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C., on March 13 issued a ruling invalidating key claims of a power converter patent asserted by SynQor Inc. against Vicor Corporation (VICR) and Cisco Systems (CSCO) in litigation currently pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. Reversing a decision of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the Federal Circuit agreed with Vicor that prior art anticipated certain claims of SynQor's 7,072,190 patent and ordered the USPTO to reconsider the obviousness of the remaining claims. Commenting on the decision, Dr. Patrizio Vinciarelli, Vicor's CEO, stated, "The Federal Circuit decision turns the tables on SynQor, which resorted to attacking competitors and customers with bogus intellectual property after failing in the marketplace with its inferior bus converters. As a company founded on innovation, Vicor respects legitimate IP interests of others. However, Vicor will confront abusive IP litigation where, as here, illegitimate claims are asserted to suppress competition from superior products known not to infringe." Vicor has asserted counterclaims against SynQor. In its counterclaims, Vicor seeks damages for unfair and deceptive trade practices and tortious interference engaged in by SynQor as part of its campaign to discourage customers from using Vicor's superior products so as to monopolize the bus converter market. Vicor will hold SynQor, and its principals, accountable for damages they have intentionally caused.
