16:22 EDTBAYRY, FEYE, WFM, AAPL, ATHN, ODP, NUS, TWTR, TSLA, MRK, GRPN, AOL, TGTMarket finishes week mixed following earnings, Fed commentary
The major averages ended the week mixed after Fed Chair Janet Yellen testified before Congress and a number of major companies reported weak earnings. MACRO NEWS: The labor market is "far from satisfactory" and inflation remains below the Fed's target, Yellen told Congress. Responding to questions on the Fed's exit strategy, Yellen said the FOMC plans to continue reducing QE purchases as long as Fed objectives are being met, but that a high degree of monetary accommodation is still warranted... U.S. economic data was mostly upbeat, with weekly jobless claims coming in better than expected and a services sector index beating the consensus outlook. However, first quarter productivity was estimated to have declined 1.7%, which was worse than the 1.1% drop predicted by economists... Away from the U.S., Chinese trade data for April was better than expected, but an index that measures the country's services sector fell slightly in April versus March. In Europe, ECB President Mario Draghi said the governing council was "comfortable" with easing at its next policy meeting. COMPANY NEWS: Tesla (TSLA), AOL (AOL), Whole Foods (WFM), Nu Skin (NUS), FireEye (FEYE), and Groupon (GRPN) were among the companies whose stocks fell after they reported earnings. Conversely, Office Depot (ODP), Humana (HUM) and Electronics Arts (EA) rose following their results... Twitter (TWTR) tumbled this week after over 450M of its shares, which represent around 80% of the total shares outstanding, were permitted to be sold without the restrictions that were put in place by the company’s initial public offering. Other previously high flying Internet stocks also continued their recent descent... Shares of Apple (AAPL) were in-focus after Financial Times said that the iPhone and iPad maker is in talks to acquire Beats Electronics, the headphone maker co-founded by rapper and record producer Dr. Dre, for over $3B... Bayer (BAYRY) and Merck (MRK) announced the latest in a series of major deals in the pharmaceutical industry, with Bayer agreeing to acquire Merck's consumer care business for $14.2B... Target (TGT) announced that CEO Gregg Steinhafel would leave the company effective immediately. The credit card data breach that hit the company late last year occurred on Steinhafel's watch... Well-known investor David Einhorn said he is short shares of athenahealth (ATHN). Athenahealth is not a software company, but an outsourcing company, and expectations for its operating margins are too high, said Einhorn. INDEXES: The Dow was up 0.4% to 16,583.34, the S&P 500 was down 0.1% to 1,878.48, and the Nasdaq was down 1.2% to 4,071.87.

07:33 EDTTSLATesla 2015 earnings estimate slashed 80% at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank cut its 2015 earnings estimate for Tesla by 80% to 11c from 52c to account for the car maker's exposure to the weakening euro. Deutsche points out 30% of Tesla's global sales are exposed to the euro. The firm also reduced its 2016 earnings estimate to $1.75 from $2.00 while noting its out year assumptions remain intact. Deutsche's new estimates are well below the current consensus expectations of 79c and $4.20 for Tesla’s 2015 and 2016, respectively. The firm keeps a Buy rating and $245 price target on Tesla, however, believing the company’s cost structure and car sale prices will "overwhelm" adverse currency moves over the longer term. Shares of the electric car maker closed yesterday down $2.67 to $191.07.
