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.

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.

10:44 EDTDISNetflix retreats after cut to sell on competition, cost concerns
The shares of Netflix (NFLX) are falling after research firm Evercore ISI downgraded the stock to Sell from Hold. Increased competition will force the company to increase its investments and the return from those investments is uncertain, the firm contends. WHAT'S NEW: In the U.S., technological advancements are enabling content providers to sell their programming to a wider range of Internet video distributors, Evercore ISI analyst Ken Sena wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Moreover, content providers themselves are now able to stream more of their programming online and obtain higher profits from doing so, Sena reported. The analyst noted that Apple (AAPL) recently obtained a three month exclusive deal to stream content form Time Warner's (TWX) HBO Now, while Yahoo (YHOO), Amazon (AMZN), and Hulu (DIS, CMCSA, NWSA) are all reportedly interested in obtaining streaming rights to "Seinfeld." Netflix's international expansion will not be sufficient to offset the increased competition, especially because foreign viewers are likely to watch less TV and be less interested in paying for TV content, the analyst believes. Furthermore, Netflix will face more competition from other Internet TV services overseas than in the U.S., according to Sena, who cut his 2015 consolidated operating income estimate for the company by 26% to $381M from $517M previously. In addition to cutting his rating, Sena lowered his price target on the shares to $380 from $450. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Netflix sank $16, or 3.7%, to $422.
