12:50 EDTAAPLOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday following reports from some of the biggest names in technology and ahead of reports tonight from several other tech giants. The averages opened in positive territory, with the tech-heavy Nasdaq up more than 1% soon after the opening bell. The index was unable to hold its early gains and moved into negative territory, taking the other major averages with it. The indexes were able to keep their losses to a minimum and eventually regrouped and made it back onto positive ground, where they stood near noon. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose 24K from the prior week to 329K in the week ended April 19, which was above the 315K consensus forecast of analysts, though there may have been some impact from Easter as the Bureau of Labor Statistics noted difficulty adjusting the data around the holiday. Durable goods orders rose 2.6% in March, beating the 2.0% increase that was forecast. Outside the U.S., Russia said it launched military exercises along the Ukrainian border after Ukrainian forces killed pro-Russian militants. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple (AAPL) advanced more than 8% after the company reported significantly better than expected quarterly earnings and sales, particularly sales of its iPhone. Apple also announced a 7-for-1 stock split that will take effect in June, along with an 8% increase in its quarterly dividend and a $30B increase in its share repurchase authorization. Following last night's report, CLSA upgraded its rating on Apple shares to Buy from Outperform and raised its price target for the stock to $695 from $610, while Jefferies recommended "aggressively" buying shares following the Q2 results and outlook for Q3... Another tech giant, Facebook (FB), also reported earning and revenue that topped expectations last night, sending its shares higher in after-hours trading and prompting a number of price target hikes among Street analysts. However, Facebook also announced that its CFO David Ebersman will step down, to be succeeded by David Wehner, who is currently the company's Vice President of Corporate Finance and Business Planning. The social network operator traded on both sides of the flat-line this morning, but was up a bit over 1% at midday... Shares of General Motors (GM) fell about 2% after the company reported profits that narrowly edged out expectations but revenues that fell short of expectations. GM said its core operating performance has been on plan for the year CEO Mary Barra said the company has seen "no meaningful slowdown" in its U.S. sales despite the negative publicity related to its ongoing ignition switch recall and associated legal matters. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was orthopedic device maker Zimmer Holdings (ZMH), which climbed 11% after it agreed to merge with privately held Biomet in a cash and stock transaction valued at about $13.35B, including the assumption of net debt. Also higher following their earnings reports were Citrix Systems (CTXS), which rose 10%, D.R. Horton (DHI), which gained more than 7%, and Aetna (AET), which advanced 6%. Among the noteworthy losers was chip making giant Qualcomm (QCOM), which slid 3.5% despite reporting profits that beat expectations and raising its yearly EPS outlook, as the company also disclosed the receipt of a notice from the SEC about a potential filing of an enforcement action against the company related to anti-bribery violations. Also lower following their earnings reports were Xilinx (XLNX), which fell about 9%, Raytheon (RTN), which dropped 4%, and Hershey (HSY), which also declined about 4%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 19.49, or 0.12%, to 16,521.14, the Nasdaq was up 25.91, or 0.63%, to 4,152.87, and the S&P 500 was up 5.35, or 0.29%, to 1,880.74.
12:25 EDTAAPLApple shares cheap, Netflix expensive, Barron's reports
While Apple (AAPL) and Netflix (NFLX) both reported better than expected profit this week, Apple's shares look cheap based on strong cash generation. Netflix, on the other hand, had strong growth, but only generated a small cash profit, and therefore looks pricey, according to Barron's. Reference Link

18:08 EDTAAPLApple iPhone ASPs were down $41 in Q2 in part from stronger 4S sales
Regarding the decline in ASPs or 'average selling price' on the iPhone, Apple said on its Q2 earnings call: "When you look at the $41 of decline, I would say about half of that was driven by the fact that we have continued to do very well in emerging markets with the 4S. I mentioned that there's a lot of markets where we've grown very strongly, in Latin America, in Asia-Pacific, in Eastern Europe. So about half of that decline came from the stronger sales of the 4S. And then the rest was primarily the fact that, again, as we move away from the quarter where we launch the product, we tend to have lower capacity mix in our numbers."

16:40 EDTGOOGOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher after Fed Chair Janet Yellen struck a dovish tone in comments to the Economic Club of New York, which was in step with the minutes of the last FOMC meeting released last week. The Fed also released its latest Beige Book report, which indicated that economic activity increased in most regions after the severe winter weather that gripped much of the country to start the year had let up. Corporate earnings season continues to pick up steam, with Dow members IBM (IBM) and American Express (AXP), as well as Google (GOOG), reporting after the market close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., housing starts in March were up 2.8% from the prior month to a rate of 946K, versus expectations for an increase of 7%. Building permits were down 2.4% to a 990K rate, versus expectations for a decline of 0.4%. Industrial production rose 0.7% in March, which was ahead of the 0.5% forecast. The Fed's Beige Book report indicated that economic activity rebounded and strengthened in most regions over the last six week. In China, data showed its economy grew 7.4% in the first quarter from a year earlier, providing relief after recent signs that growth in the world's second largest economy has been slowing. COMPANY NEWS: Bank of America (BAC) fell 26c, or 1.59%, to $16.13 after the bank reported a first quarter loss of 5c per share, largely due to $6B in legal charges. Excluding the impact of this litigation expense, which was related to a previously announced settlement with the Federal Housing Finance Agency and other legacy mortgage-related matters, the banking major reported earnings that appeared to beat estimates... Yahoo (YHOO) gained $2.14, or 6.26%, to $36.35 after its quarterly report, with investors reacting most positively to the 66% year-over-year revenue growth reported by Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba, in which Yahoo holds a 24% stake. Yahoo's quarterly profit and revenue also beat expectations and the company's CEO Marissa Mayer said during its earnings webcast that the search giant's core business has moved from declining growth to stable to modest growth. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was CBS Outdoor (CBSO), which jumped $1.94, or 6.69%, to $30.96 after the IRS approved a plan for the company, which was just last week spun-off from its parent CBS (CBS), to convert into a real estate investment trust, or REIT. Other companies seeking REIT status, including Equinix (EQIX), Iron Mountain (IRM) and Lamar Advertising (LAMR), also rose following CBS' announcement. Also higher was drugmaker Zogenix (ZGNX), up 48c, or 20.51%, to $2.82 after confirming that a judge prevented a ban on sales of the company's Zohydro pain medication in Massachusetts. Among the noteworthy losers were U.S.-listed shares of Credit Suisse (CS), which fell 54c, or 1.7%, to $31.22 after the Swiss bank reported net income and revenue that fell when compared to the prior year. Also lower were Agnico Eagle Mines (AEM) and Yamana Gold (AUY) after agreeing to jointly acquire Osisko Mining. Angico shares fell $2.61, or 8.56%, to $27.88, while Yamana was down 36c, or 4.3%, to $8.02. INDEXES: The Dow was up 162.29, or 1.0%, to 16,424.85, the Nasdaq was up 52.06, or 1.29%, to 4,086.23, and the S&P 500 was up 19.33, or 1.05%, to 1,862.31.

EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $6.39 on revenue of $15.52B. The consensus range is $5.83-$6.96 for EPS, and $14.94B-$16.12B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Google reported Q4 EPS $12.01 against estimates of $12.26 on revenue of $16.86B against estimates of $16.75B. Google reported Q4 paid clicks up 31% and average cost-per-click decreased approximately 11%. The company also reported Q4 Sites revenue $10.55B and Q4 Network revenue $3.52B. NEWS: Google effectively split its stock with a dividend distribution of Class C shares, which began trading in early April. In the past quarter, the company reached a deal with a European Union after sending an improved commitments proposal in context of the ongoing antitrust investigation on online search and search advertising. Google also announced that it resolved the copyright litigation with Viacom (VIA, VIAB). The company announced partnerships and agreements with VMware (VMW), Cisco (CSCO), and OmniVision (OVTI) as well as acquisitions of SlickLogin, Titan Aerospace and parts of Green Throttle Games. STREET RESEARCH: Cantor said Google is being boosted by product listing ads, which are expected to increase the company's 2014 ad revenue by $1B. Atlantic Equities and Bernstein said Google's weakness provides a buying opportunity, citing strong year-over-year revenue growth at "core Google." Bernstein added predictions that Google Play, Computer and App Engine, and Apps for Enterprise and government will become multi-billion dollar businesses. Ahead of the Q1 earnings, Susquehanna said the results should beat expectations due to continued website growth, PLAs, and early benefits from Enhanced Campaigns and YouTube. PRICE ACTION: Google shares have dropped over 8% since the first day of trading following the company's Q4 report. In Tuesday midday trading ahead of Q1 report, Google shares are down a little over 2%.
