AT&T (T) knew that demand for cable bundles had likely peaked when it bought DirecTV (DTV), but the company believes the decline in traditional cable businesses will be slower than anticipated, allowing it to fund upgrades to its broadband network, reports the Wall Street Journal, citing statements by Chief Strategy Officer John Stankey. "The world is going to be broadband... and that is where we want to be," said Stankey. The Journal notes that Apple (AAPL), Time Warner's (TWC) HBO, and Dish (DISH) have launched or plan to launch web-TV packages and services. Reference Link

15:34 EDTLULUlululemon technical commentary ahead of results
The shares rebounded sharply at the end of last year but have paused in the last several weeks prior to earnings. The range of price has been bound by $60 at the low and $68 at the high. These bounds may help understand where price may go following earnings and outlook. If the news is positive, a first test of resistance would come at $64.96, the 50-day moving average. A breakout above the moving average would be a technical positive, with the 52-week high at $68.99 as next resistance. An extreme positive move on the upside could take shares to the $70 area. It was from that price point in December 2013 that the stock began its fall. If the news is bearish, support levels to watch below $60 would be at $58, $55.48, and $53.39.

16:26 EDTTOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened lower but turned mixed early in the day and remained that way for most of the session. The Dow and S&P spent most of the day deep in negative territory, while the Nasdaq managed to stay just above the flat line. Investors had a chance to digest yesterday’s comments from the Fed and may have re-considered whether it latest policy stance was as dovish as originally believed. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose 1K to 291K in the week ended March 14, which nearly matched the consensus 293K forecast. The current account deficit widened to $113.5B in Q4 from a revised deficit of $98.9B in Q3. The leading indicators for February rose 0.2% to 121.4, which was in-line with expectations. The Philadelphia Fed business outlook survey ticked down to a 5.0 one-year low from 5.2 in February, missing expectations for it to have risen a 7.0 reading. COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL) joined the Dow Jones Industrial Average after the close last night, replacing AT&T (T). Shares of Apple finished their first day in the blue chip index down 97c, or 0.76%, at $127.50, while AT&T fell 39c, or 1.16%, to $33.20... Coffee giant Starbucks (SBUX) rose $1.92, or 2%, to close at $97.76 after hitting a new all-time high of $99.20 earlier. The move follows the company's investor day meeting yesterday, where it unveiled plans for two pilots of delivery services, reported a partnership to expand the distribution of its ready-to-drink products in China, and announced that its board has declared the sixth two-for-one split of the company’s stock since its IPO in 1992. Goldman Sachs and Wells Fargo were both unphased by the record highs and predicted the rally is not over for Starbucks in upbeat notes on the stock today. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Amicus Therapeutics (FOLD), which rose $3.11, or 33.26%, to $12.46 after reporting positive results in meetings with the EMA and FDA. Also higher was Wynn Resorts (WYNN), which gained $7.19, or 5.85%, to $130.11 after research firm Brean Capital last night initiated coverage of the stock and several casino peers with Buy ratings. Among the noteworthy losers was Transocean (RIG), which fell $1.09, or 7.15%, to $14.16 after saying that it intends to scrap four rigs and noting that with those it has announced plans to scrap a total of 16 floaters. Also lower after its earnings report was diversified apparel company Vince Holding (VNCE), which fell $3.50, or 16.36%, to $17.89. INDEXES: The Dow fell 117.16, or 0.65%, to 17,959.03, the Nasdaq gained 9.55, or 0.19%, to 4,992.38, and the S&P 500 declined 10.23, or 0.49%, to 2,089.27.
13:09 EDTTAT&T to pay $40M after missing appeal deadline, Bloomberg reports
AT&T is required to pay $40M in a patent infringement case because the company's lawyers failed to read a court document, reports Bloomberg. An appeals court ruled that AT&T missed the deadline to appeal a jury verdict for $27.5M, plus interest, won by Two-Way Media LLC. AT&T said its missed deadline was “excusable neglect” because of the incorrect docket entry, but the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit said others were given the information needed and refused to extend the time period for the appeal.

13:00 EDTTOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, with Nasdaq slightly higher and the Dow and S&P 500 both down a bit more than 0.5%. The day’s economic reports were generally benign and are likely less significant to the trading action than participants having had some time to digest yesterday’s Fed comments. Immediately after the Fed's policy statement yesterday, the U.S. dollar fell as low as 1.10 against the euro, but that move was almost entirely reversed overnight. The dollar was back near pre-Fed levels against the euro early this morning, and similar moves were seen in pairs of the dollar and other major currencies. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose 1K to 291K in the week ended March 14, which nearly matched the consensus 293K forecast. The current account deficit widened to $113.5B in Q4 from a revised deficit of $98.9B in Q3. The leading indicators for February rose 0.2% to 121.4, which was in-line with expectations. The Philadelphia Fed business outlook survey ticked down to a 5.0 one-year low from 5.2 in February, missing expectations for it to have risen a 7.0 reading. In Europe, the Swiss National Bank left rates unchanged, cut its growth forecasts for the country's economy, said that it will intervene in currency markets as needed since it believes the Swiss Franc remains overvalued. COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL) joined the Dow Jones Industrial Average today, replacing AT&T (T). Shares of the iPhone maker were down 0.5% near midday, while AT&T stock fell a bit more than 1%... Shares of coffee giant Starbucks (SBUX) hit a new all-time high of $98.50 earlier this afternoon following the company's investor day meeting yesterday. In conjunction with its meeting, Starbucks reaffirmed its goal to grow its market cap to $100B, unveiled plans for two pilots of delivery services, announced that its board has declared the sixth two-for-one split of the company’s stock since its IPO in 1992 and said it has entered into an agreement for Tingyi to manufacture and expand the distribution of Starbucks ready-to-drink products throughout mainland China. Goldman Sachs and Wells Fargo both issued upbeat notes on the stock today, saying that the coffee retailer's shares can continue to climb. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Coronado Biosciences (CNDO), which gained 42% after announcing the formation of a new company, Mustang Therapeutics, focused on Chimeric Antigen Receptor, or CAR-T, technology. The company also announced a licensing agreement with NeuPharma for EGFR inhibitors. Also higher was Guess (GES), which gained 15% after reporting higher than expected profits for its fiscal fourth quarter. Among the noteworthy losers was Transocean (RIG), which fell 6% after having announced last night that four of its 5th generation UDW drillships will be cold stacked and the contract with ENI (E) for the Transocean Amirante was terminated. Transocean also said it intends to scrap four rigs, noting that with those it has announced plans to scrap a total of 16 floaters. Also lower following its earnings report was diversified apparel company Vince Holding (VNCE), which fell 16%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 128.51, or 0.71%, to 17,947.68, the Nasdaq was up 3.15, or 0.06%, to 4,985.98, and the S&P 500 was down 13.36, or 0.64%, to 2,086.14.
