For FY15, Finish Line now expects EPS to be flat to FY14 non-GAAP EPS of $1.67. The company expects Finish Line comparable store sales to increase low to mid-single digits. The company previously said it expected Finish Line comparable store sales to be up mid single digits. “Third quarter comparable sales rebounded from second quarter trends, however merchandise margin pressure kept us from achieving our profitability plan. We remain confident in the strategic course we have set for the company and we’ll continue to invest in the omnichannel initiatives focused on delivering the long-term financial goals we have previously outlined. That said, we are adjusting our near-term capital spending plans and creating a more flexible expense structure to protect profitability until stronger full price selling trends reemerge," said CEO Glenn Lyon.

16:26 EDTSIMGOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session sharply higher and remained that way for the entire session. The strength was attributed to investor enthusiasm over statements from the Fed about being patient in their approach to raising interest rates. Over the past couple of weeks the price of oil has often dictated the direction of equities, but that was not the case today as a drop in WTI and Brent crude was not followed by a dip in the equity averages. With year-end approaching, money managers may be chasing performance, but they also may be adjusting portfolio’s ahead of tomorrow’s quadruple witching, when market index futures, market index options, stock options, and stock futures all expire. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell 6K to 289K in the week ended December 13, versus expectations for 295K first-time claims. Markit's flash December Services PMI reading came in at 53.6, which was below the consensus 56.3 forecast. The Philadelphia Fed survey of business conditions index drop to 24.5 in December from November's unexpectedly high 40.8 reading, though the steep pullback was in-line with the consensus forecast. The November index of leading economic indicators rose 0.6%, as expected. In Europe, U.K. retail sales including auto fuel increased 1.6% in November, widely topping economists' forecast for a 0.4% gain. Germany's Ifo business climate index advanced to 105.5 in December from 104.7 in the prior month, narrowly topping expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Oracle (ORCL) rallied $4.19, or 10.18%, to $45.35 after the company’s second quarter results surpassed consensus estimates. Analyst commentary was mixed, with research firms Canaccord and FBR Capital raising their price targets on the stock to $50 and $48, respectively, while JPMorgan said it expects consensus estimates for Oracle to be reduced and Oppenheimer said that it thinks the transition to the cloud is increasing pressure on the company's financial model and restraining EPS growth. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was OvaScience (OVAS), which rose $8.26, or 23.63%, to $43.22 after the company said it has achieved its 2014 corporate goals to advance its three fertility treatment options and its stock was upgraded to Outperform at Wedbush. Also higher was Tetraphase Pharmaceuticals (TTPH), which gained $4.81, or 14.49%, to $38.00 after a study of the company's eravacycline antibiotic met its primary endpoint and more than one research firm said the trial results make the company a more likely takeover target. Among the noteworthy losers was Silicon Image (SIMG), which dropped $1.84, or 27.3%, to $4.90 after the company warned it expects a year-over-year revenue decline in 2015 of about 10% due to a reduction in mobile design wins at one of its largest customers. Also lower were shares of RCS Capital (RCAP), which fell $1.81, or 15.39%, to $9.95 after its Executive Chairman of the Board, Nicholas Schorsch, was reportedly accused of directing two executives at American Realty Capital Properties (ARCP), where he was formerly the Chairman, to manipulate quarterly financial results. INDEXES: The Dow gained 421.28, or 2.43%, to 17,778.15, the Nasdaq advanced 104.08, or 2.24%, to 4,748.40, and the S&P 500 rose 48.34, or 2.4%, to 2,061.23.

07:56 EDTSIMGSilicon Image sees FY15 revenue down 10% from FY14, consensus $271.32
Silicon Image announced earlier that it expects a year-over-year revenue decline in 2015 of approximately 10% due to a reduction in mobile design wins at one of its largest customers. The decline in the mobile business segment is expected to be partially offset by continued strength in the company’s CE business segment due to continued penetration of MHL in mainstream TVs, and the popularity of 4K Ultra HD where the company has multiple HDMI 2.0 / MHL 3.0 designs. “Although we believe that both our CE and licensing businesses will remain strong, we now anticipate top line 2015 revenues to be down compared to 2014. While we continue to execute on our long term strategic growth initiatives, we remain committed to reduce our operating expenses in 2015 and anticipate that even with a top line revenue decline, we will remain profitable with operating margin as a percent of revenue expected to be flat to slightly up for the year,” said CEO Camillo Martino. For reference, FY14 revenue consensus $255.04M. Shares of Silicon Image are down about 32% to $4.60 in pre-market trading after the company cautioned on its mobile outlook.
