16:40 EDTLULUOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher for the fifth straight session. Volume remained light on this Monday following Easter, as a number of international markets remained closed. The averages spent time on both sides of the flat-line early in the trading day before settling into a narrow range in positive territory for most of the second half of the session. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed national activity index fell to 0.20 in March, matching the consensus forecast. The Conference Board's index of leading indicators rose 0.8% in March, beating the consensus forecast for an increase of 0.7%. COMPANY NEWS: Ford (F) is preparing to announce that its Chief Operating Officer, Mike Fields, will take the CEO role at the company following the retirement of current CEO Alan Mulally later this year, according to a report from Bloomberg. Shares of Ford were little changed for the session following the report, losing 2c, or 0.13%, to close at $15.98... U.S.-listed shares of British pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca (AZN) gained $5.61, or 8.84%, to $69.10 after the U.K.'s Sunday Times said Pfizer (PFE) has takeover interest in the company. Analysts had mixed opinions on the report, with Citigroup saying a bid looks "highly probable," while analysts at Bernstein think such a deal would conflict with Pfizer's strategy of getting smaller. Shares of Pfizer rose 61c, or 2.02%, to $30.86 following the report... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT), up $9.58, or 39.26%, to $33.98 after announcing plans to submit a New Drug Application to the FDA by the end of this year for the approval of eteplirsen for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Also higher was Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), which rose 43c, or 11.65%, to $4.12 after the semiconductor manufacturer reported earnings and revenue that topped expectations after the close on Thursday. Among the noteworthy losers was MoneyGram (MGI), down $2.01, or 13.57%, to $12.80 in its second straight losing session after Wal-Mart (WMT) announced that it was launching its own money transfer service. MoneyGram's slide today comes after the stock dropped by more than 18% on Thursday following Wal-Mart's announcement. Also lower was lululemon (LULU), down $2.64, or 5.11%, to $49.07 after analysts at Sterne Agee said the company's investor day presentation, held on Thursday, did not include a substantive plan to grow same-store sales. INDEXES: The Dow was up 40.71, or 0.25%, to 16,449.25, the Nasdaq was up 26.03, or 0.64%, to 4,121.55, and the S&P 500 was up 7.04, or 0.38%, to 1,871.89.

13:12 EDTTEarnings Preview: AT&T sentiment mixed ahead of Q1 report
AT&T (T) is expected to report Q1 earnings after the market close on Tuesday, April 22, with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. AT&T is a global telecommunications company offering wireless and long distance services. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for EPS of 70c on revenue of $32.41B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 64c-74c on revenue of $31.96B-$33.24B. LAST QUARTER: AT&T reported Q4 adjusted EPS of 53c against estimates for 50c, on revenue of $33.2B against estimates for $33.06B. Q4 postpaid churn was reported at 1.11%. AT&T reported the following in Q4: more than 500,000 branded smartphone net adds, including postpaid and prepaid; wireless operating income $1.4B; total postpaid ARPU up 2.1%; net increase in total wireless subscribers 809,000; connected device adds 398,000. On its Q4 earnings report, the company forecast FY14 adjusted EPS growth in the mid-single digits compared to a consensus at the time of $2.67. It expected FY14 revenue growth of 2%-3%, compared to the then consensus of $131.12B. On March 31, the board of AT&T authorized the repurchase of up to 300M shares, representing approximately 6% of AT&T common shares outstanding, with no expiration date. Due to the large share buyback program, The New York times noted that AT&T would be less likely to make a bid for Vodafone (VOD), something that had been speculated throughout the quarter. STREET RESEARCH: Street research has been mixed in the weeks leading up to AT&T's Q1 earnings report. On February 11, Drexel Hamilton initiated AT&T with a Buy rating and price target of $40. On March 25, HSBC downgraded AT&T to Neutral from Overweight based on expectations for increased industry price competition and a peak margin expansion. The firm lowered its price target on the shares to $35 from $39. PRICE ACTION: AT&Tís shares are up approximately 6% since the company's Q4 report, but are down about 6% from year ago levels. In early afternoon trading ahead of tomorrow's Q1 report, AT&Tís shares are trading near the flat line.
