16:12 EDTQLIKOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Friday
Stocks began the session in negative territory and remained there throughout the day. The monthly jobs report showed job growth had slowed more that expected in January, along with indicating higher than expected wage inflation due to the minimum wage increases around the country. Also weighing on the market were the worse than expected forecasts from some companies with previously high-flying stocks, including professional social network operator LinkedIn (LNKD). The Nasdaq was the biggest decliner losing more than 3% of its value, though the S&P and Dow also finished with significant losses. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., nonfarm payrolls rose 151,000 in January, versus expectations for an increase of 190,000. The unemployment rate fell to 4.9%, versus expectations for it to stay at 5.0%. Average hourly earnings climbed 0.5% month-over-month, versus the consensus forecast for them to rise 0.3%. The trade deficit widened 2.7% to $43.4B in December, as exports dipped 0.3% and imports rose 0.3%. Consumer credit surged $21.3B in December, topping the $16B increase that was expected. COMPANY NEWS: LinkedIn plunged 43.68% to $108.49 after the professional network reported stronger than expected fourth quarter results, but its 2016 guidance came in significantly below expectations. At least nine Wall Street research firms responded to the guidance miss by downgrading the stock. "Big Data" software provider Tableau (DATA) similarly issued full-year guidance significantly below expectations and also fell sharply, tumbling 49.57% to $41.27. A number of companies that sell software to businesses fell in the wake of their reports, including Splunk (SPLK), Qlik Technologies (QLIK), NetSuite (N), Salesforce (CRM) and Workday (WDAY). MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were packaged foods maker Post Holdings (POST), which gained 11.14% to $63.83, and meat producer Tyson Foods (TSN), which advanced Among the noteworthy losers was Lionsgate (LGF), falling 27% to $18.57 after its third quarter revenue and earnings declined, which the company attributed to the performance of its theatrical film slate. Lionsgate's post-earnings pullback also weighed on Starz (STRZA), which fell 22.2%. Bloomberg reported earlier in the week, citing sources, that Lionsgate had restarted talks to possibly acquire Starz. Also lower following their earnings reports were shares of Redbox parent Outerwall (OUTR), which fell 17.28%, and Hanesbrands (HBI), which slid 15.1%. INDEXES: The Dow fell 211.75, or 1.29%, to 16,204.83, the Nasdaq lost 146.42, or 3.25%, to 4,363.14, and the S&P 500 declined 35.43, or 1.85%, to 1,880.02.
11:21 EDTQLIKTableau guidance weighs down enterprise software space
The shares of Tableau (DATA) are tumbling after the company reported stronger than expected fourth quarter earnings and revenue, but its full-year guidance came in significantly below expectations. A number of analysts responded to the news by cutting their price targets on the developer of software used to analyze data. WHAT'S NEW: Tableau reported Q4 earnings per share of 33c, versus the consensus outlook of 16c, and the company's revenue came in slightly above expectations. However, the company provided fiscal 2016 EPS guidance of 22c-35c, versus the consensus outlook of 62c. Moreover, its 2016 revenue guidance came in at $830M-$850M ,versus the consensus outlook of $871M. Tableau said it expects 2016 to be "another investment year," adding that the productivity of its sales force declined last year. Tableau blamed its guidance miss on weaker IT spending trends and competition. ANALYST REACTION: Tableau's Q4 results missed the expectations of some investors, wrote Jefferies analyst John DiFucci, who cut his price target on the name to $65 from $92. Qlik Sense, a free desktop product offered by Tableau's competitor, Qlik Technologies (QLIK), may be negatively impacting Tableau, DiFucci believes. Meanwhile, Tableau's execution risk is increasing as the size of its deals rise, added the analyst, who kept a Hold rating on the shares. DiFucci noted that a softening spend environment was given as a reason for Tableau's disappointing guidance, but said he continues to hear of a decent spending environment in the field. However, Stifel analyst Tom Roderick wrote that Tableau's results show that the global economic slowdown has begun to negatively impact IT spending. Calling the company a victim of the large growth it has generated in the past, the analyst believes that the company's competitive position is still strong. He cut his price target on the name to $100 from $145 but kept a Buy rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Tableau tumbled 46% to $44.41. Other companies that sell software to businesses also fell, with "Big Data" peer Splunk (SPLK) plunging 24% to $35.84, Qlik falling 18% to $20.51, NetSuite declining 12.5% to $61.40 and Workday (WDAY) dropping 14.5% to $55.47.

05:56 EDTQLIKTableau price target lowered to $65 from $92 at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst John DiFucci lowered his price target for Tableau (DATA) to $65 saying expectations for the company "finally became too great" in Q4. The analyst says that while a softening spend environment was given as a reason for the disappointing guidance, he continues to hear of a decent spending environment in the field. DiFucci wonders if the free Qlik Sense desktop (QLIK) is having an effect on Tableau. The analyst keeps a Hold rating on Tableau following the company's Q4 results.
