11:26 EDTPAY, NXPI, NCR, DBD, MCRS, USATVeriFone hits 52-week high after better than expected results
Shares of VeriFone Systems (PAY), which is involved in secure electronic payment solutions, are rising after the company’s second quarter results and its revenue outlook surpassed expectations. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, VeriFone reported Q2 adjusted earnings per share of 37c and adjusted revenue of $467M, beating the consensus views of 33c and $443.42M, respectively. VeriFone forecast Q3 adjusted EPS of 33c-34c versus consensus of 37c. Q3 adjusted revenue was seen at $455M-$460M, which was above the consensus of $453.83M at the midpoint. For FY14, adjusted EPS was forecast at $1.42-$1.44, compared to consensus $1.43, while adjusted revenue was seen at $1.825B-$1.835B, topping the consensus of $1.8B. WHAT’S NOTABLE: The company also announced that the competition commission of India is investigating certain complaints made against it, alleging unfair practices based on certain provisions in its software development license arrangements in India. VeriFone noted it has cooperated with requests by the CCI in its investigation. OTHERS TO WATCH: After VeriFone stated that 15 of its existing POS customers moved to EMV credit card technology, Sterne Agee wrote in a note to investors that it thinks the EMV trend is gathering steam and provides a tailwind to NXP Semiconductors (NXPI). The firm notes that banks are continuing to roll out EMV-enabled cards and kept a $74 price target and Buy rating on NXP's shares. Other companies in the POS system and electronic payment space include NCR Corporation (NCR), Diebold (DBD), USA Technologies (USAT), and MICROS Systems (MCRS). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, VeriFone rose about 7%, to $36.23 on heavy trading volume. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a new 52-week high of $36.74. Including today’s advance, the stock has more than doubled in price over the past twelve months.

12:18 EDTNXPIThe Fly: Midday Wrap
The market opened in positive territory following news that Russia and Ukraine were working on a potential ceasefire. The market had faltered on Friday following reports that the Ukraine army had attacked a Russian military vehicle after it crossed into Ukraine territory. The market opened sharply higher and then received an additional boost when the NAHB Housing market Index came in above expectations. The averages quickly moved to session highs, lifting the S&P to its highest level ever and putting August on track for the best monthly performance since February. ECONOMIC EVENTS: The NAHB homebuilder sentiment index rose 2 points to 55 in August. The index had climbed 4 points to 53 in July. This is the highest level since January's 56. The single family sales index edged up to 58 from 56 (revised from 57). The future index was 65 from 63 (revised from 64). The index of prospective buyer traffic improved to 42 from 39 (revised from 39). Data was better than expected. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of discount retailer Dollar General (DG) were higher by about 10% after the company announced a proposal to acquire rival Family Dollar (FDO) for $78.50 per share in cash, in a transaction valued at $9.7B. Shares of Family Dollar rose approximately 5% on the news. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Sensata Technologies (ST), which rose 5.6% after after agreeing to buy privately held Schrader International for $1B. Also higher was Lannett (LCI), which gained 9.3% after the company said fourth quarter and full-year 2014 earnings per share and revenue would exceed analysts' consensus estimates. Among the noteworthy losers was Monster Beverage (MNST), which fell about 4% after research firm Jefferies downgraded the shares to Hold from Buy saying the valuation looks full following its recent rally. Also lower was NXP Semiconductors (NXPI), which dropped 2.3% after Goldman Sachs downgraded the company to Sell from Neutral, and downgraded the semiconductor sector to Cautious from Neutral. The firm expects consensus estimates to move lower due to cyclical headwinds, increased Q4 and Q1 seasonality, and a RF correction. Goldman lowered their price target on the shares to $54 from $58. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 168.13, or 1.01%, to 16,831.04, the Nasdaq rose 44.11, or 0.99%, to 4,508.87, and the S&P 500 was higher by 16.79, or 0.86%, to 1,971.88.
