12:17 EDTCXW, SQNM, LXK, NFLX, ALGN, WAT, BIG, SANM, HSY, T, PH, F, UTX, BHI, IBM, AAPL, CSL, MMMOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, following better than expected earnings from three more Dow components. The Nasdaq is being weighed on by a slide in Apple's (AAPL) shares, which are down about 2% ahead of tonight's earnings report. AT&T's (T) report of its quarterly iPhone activations added to recent weakness in that much watched stock. The futures action led to a mixed opening for the market and the averages have moved in a fairly narrow range since the opening bell... ECONOMIC EVENTS: Domestically, the S&P/Case Shiller 20-city composite home price index gained 0.2% in February on a seasonally adjusted basis, matching forecasts and marking the first time the reading has risen since April of last year. Without adjusting for seasonal differences, the survey fell to its lowest level since the housing market downturn began. New single-family home sales dropped in March but beat analysts' expectations as the government upwardly revised its sales figures for February, January and December. The new data and adjustments resulted in a seasonally adjusted 328,000 unit annual sales rate. U.S. consumer confidence edged slightly lower in April to 69.2, versus expectations of a 69.6 reading. The Richmond Fed manufacturing index rose to 14, up from 7 the month prior and above the forecast for a 6 reading. In Europe, a Dutch bond sale went off without problems the day after its government collapsed over budget cuts... COMPANY NEWS: AT&T (T) led all Dow advancers, rising 3.5%, following its better than expected earnings. Shares of United Technologies (UTX) and 3M (MMM) also rose after both reported earnings that beat consensus. IBM (IBM) was another source of Dow strength after the company increased its dividend and share repurchase authorization... Fitch restored its credit ratings on Ford Motor (F) to investment grade for the first time since 2005... Among companies reporting earnings, advancers included Carlisle (CSL), Baker Hughes (BHI), Parker Hannifin (PH) and Hershey (HSY); decliners included Waters (WAT), Lexmark (LXK) and Sanmina-SCI (SANM)... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Align Technology (ALGN), up about 15%, after its earnings and guidance beat the Street's view, and Sequenom (SQNM), up more than 10%, after William Blair said in a note to investors that the company's MaterniT21 test volumes could top consensus estimates. Noteworthy losers included Big Lots (BIG), down over 20%, following at least four downgrades after the company lowered its same store sales view, and Netflix (NFLX), down 13%, after the company posted a quarterly loss and gave lower than anticipated domestic subscriber guidance for Q2. Also lower were shares of Corrections Corporation of America (CXW), down almost 8%, after California announced plans to overhaul its prisons and cut billions in prison spending... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 105.88, or 0.82%, to 13,033.05; the Nasdaq was down 0.84, or 0.03%, to 2,969.61; and the S&P 500 was up 7.15, or 0.52%, to 1,374.09.

09:56 EDTAAPLIDC: Apple leads smartphone vendors in China during Q1
IDCís latest Mobile Phone Tracker shows the China smartphone market contracted by 4% year-on-year with 98.8M units shipped in the first quarter of 2015. This is the first time in six years that the China smartphone market declined YoY as the market continues to mature. On a QoQ basis, the market contracted 8% on the back of a large inventory buildup at the end of last year. The study said Apple (AAPL) was the top smartphone vendor in China in the first quarter, with consumers still having a strong appetite for the larger screens on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Xiaomi slipped to the second position as it faced strong competition from other vendors in the low to mid-range segment of the market, while Huawei maintained third position as it saw a good uptake in the mid-range segment. Samsung (SSNLF) and Lenovo (LNVGY) both led the market at least once last year, but rankings have since changed quickly, highlighting the volatility of consumers' brand preference in China.
