16:54 EDTT, AAPL, UTX, MMM, IBM, ALGN, AFFY, BIG, NFLXOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed, with AT&T (T) supporting the Dow and Apple (AAPL) dragging on the Nasdaq. Stock futures were higher in pre-market trading but the Nasdaq futures moved lower as shares of Apple turned down. The futures action led to a mixed open for the broader market, which is the way it remained for most of the session. Early in the day the new home sales report showed that home sales declined but an upward revision to previous months' figures pushed the annual sales rate above expectations. All three major indices moved higher briefly after that report, but they soon turned mixed again, where they would drift for the rest of the day... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., new single-family home sales dropped in March but the sales rate beat analysts' expectations as the government upwardly revised its sales figures for prior months, resulting in a seasonally adjusted 328,000-unit annual sales rate. The S&P/Case Shiller 20-city composite home price index fell to its lowest level since the housing market downturn began, but on a seasonally adjusted basis the index gained 0.2% in February. U.S. consumer confidence slipped a bit in April to 69.2, versus expectations of a 69.6 reading. The Richmond Fed manufacturing index rose to 14 from 7 a month ago... COMPANY NEWS: AT&T, United Technologies (UTX) and 3M (MMM) all rose after reporting earnings that beat consensus. Also powering the Dow higher were shares of IBM (IBM), rising 0.69% after the company increased its dividend and share repurchase authorization... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Align Technology (ALGN), up $4.32, or 15.74%, to $31.76, after its earnings and guidance beat the Street's view, and Affymax (AFFY), up $1.36, or 11.73%, to $12.95, after announcing that its OMONTYS Injection is now available only for use in treating anemia due to chronic kidney disease in adult patients on dialysis. Noteworthy losers included Big Lots (BIG), down $11.00, or 24.06%, to $34.71, after the company lowered its same store sales view, and Netflix (NFLX), down $14.16, or 13.90%, to $87.68, following its earnings report... INDICES: The Dow rose 74.39, or 0.58%, to 13,001.56; the Nasdaq dropped 8.85, or 0.30%, to 2,961.60; and the S&P 500 added 5.03, or 0.37%, to 1,371.97.

11:15 EDTAAPLGT Advanced retreats after analyst downgrades stock
Shares of sapphire maker GT Advanced (GTAT) are falling after research firm CLSA downgraded the stock in a note to investors today. The firm cited concerns about increased costs associated with the company's deal with Apple as the main reason for the downgrade. WHAT'S NEW: GT Advanced's costs associated with its deal to supply sapphire to Apple are being impacted by low yields, CLSA analyst Mark Heller wrote after speaking with strategic consulting firm Yole Développement. Lower yields will reduce the amount of sapphire that GT Advanced can produce for Apple, and will negatively affect GT’s profit margins, explained Heller. He believes that GT Advanced's risk/reward ratio is balanced at current levels, and downgraded his rating on the shares to Underperform from Outperform. However, he raised his price target on the shares to $19 from $18. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, GT Advanced fell 2% to $18.
