J.C.

Based on results to date, and taking into account the shift of Easter into the fiscal month of March this year, the company currently expects comparable store sales for Q1 to be in the range of 3.5%-4.5%.

17:03 EDTKSURailroad operators under pressure after Norfolk Southern guidance
Shares of railroad operators are active after Norfolk Southern (NSC) provided first quarter guidance that came in below analysts' consensus estimates. The company provided Q1 EPS guidance of $1.00, below analysts' estimates of $1.27, on revenue of $2.6B, also below analysts' estimates of $2.69B. Norfolk Southern said revenue decreases reflect reductions in fuel surcharge revenue in each of NS' three commodity groups, continued reductions in coal volumes, and a lower average revenue per unit related to the mix of business. Lower overall expenses were aided by declining fuel expense but hurt by weather and service recovery costs. PEERS: Publicly traded companies in the railroad space include CSX (CSX), Canadian National (CNI), Canadian Pacific (CP), Genesee & Wyoming (GWR), Kansas City Southern (KSU), and Union Pacific (UNP). PRICE ACTION: Norfolk Southern is down 3.9%, CSX is down 2.2%, Canadian National is lower by 0.6% and Union Pacific is lower by 1.8% in after-hours trading.

13:26 EDTSINAOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, with the Dow and S&P 500 slightly lower and the Nasdaq clinging to a narrow gain. The broader market opened in positive territory and the averages moved in a narrow trading range during the morning. The Nasdaq has been the strongest of the indices since the open, though early gains from Apple (AAPL) and Qualcomm (QCOM) had evaporated by near midday, taking a bite out of the gains the index had been seeing earlier in the session. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major economic data was released. In China, export sales unexpectedly contracted 15% in March, while imports shrank 12.7% last month from a year ago. The March fall in imports was in line with forecasts, unlike the one for exports, which were expected to rise 12%. COMPANY NEWS: Activist investor Jana Partners is putting pressure on Qualcomm to increase stock buybacks and take other actions to increase shareholder value, including an exploration of spinning off its chip unit from its patent-licensing unit. In response to statements made by JANA, Qualcomm noted that it recently increased its stock repurchase authorization to $15B and repeated that it plans to repurchase $10B of common stock within one year. Barry Rosenstein of JANA Partners, while speaking on CNBC, said Qualcomm should buy back $15B of its shares over the next six months, before the company undertakes strategic actions that could move the stock higher... Apple shares were rising early in the trading day but had given up their gains by midday. Pre-orders of its new Apple Watch started Friday. The company did not release any sales figures for the first weekend, but research firm Slice Intelligence estimated that nearly one million customers in the U.S. preordered the device on the first day it was available. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Alamos Gold (AGI), which rose 6%, and AuRico Gold (AUQ), which rose 7%, after the companies announced an agreement to combine via "a merger of equals" with a transaction equity value of about $1.5B. Upon completion of the deal, former Alamos and AuRico shareholders will each own approximately 50% of the new Alamos Gold and a new company, to be named AuRico Metals, will be created to hold AuRico's Kemess project and some other assets. The newly formed company will own a 4.9% equity interest in the spinoff and the remaining "SpinCo" shares will be distributed 50% each to former Alamos and AuRico shareholders. Also higher was Builders FirstSource (BLDR), which gained 65% after announcing that it has entered into an agreement to acquire ProBuild Holdings in an all-cash transaction valued at about $1.63B. Among the noteworthy losers was Basic Energy (BAS), which fell 8% after Raymond James downgraded the stock to Market Perform based on valuation, substantial pricing pressure, and industry overcapacity. Also lower were U.S.-listed shares of Sina (SINA), which dropped 5% after the Financial Times reported that China's government has warned that it will shut down the company's service if it does not "improve censorship." INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 19.08, or 0.11%, to 18,038.57, the Nasdaq was up 7.93, or 0.16%, to 5,003.91, and the S&P 500 was down 3.04, or 0.14%, to 2,099.02.
