08:51 EDTEBAY, TWTRCiti cuts Twitter estimates below consensus, drops target to $30
Citi analyst Mark May says his analysis indicates the consensus estimates for Twitter (TWTR) may be too high as they assume "meaningful increases" in monetization which he believes may prove difficult to realize. May cut his 2015, 2016 and 2017 earnings per share estimates for Twitter to 30c, 34c and 58c, respectively, well below the consensus estimates of 34c, 63c, and $1.03. He also cut his 2016 revenue estimate to 3% below the consensus. It will be difficult for the stock to achieve sustained multiple expansion until user growth accelerates and/or revenue growth stabilizes, May tells investors in a research note. He moved the stock to Citi's "High Risk" designation given Twitter's recent user trends and his belief that his estimates are unlikely to move up in the near-term. He keeps a Neutral rating on the name. May's top picks among U.S. Internet stocks remain Facebook (FB), (AMZN) and eBay (EBAY).

After Boeing (BA) rejected an unsolicited offer from Aerojet Rocketdyne (AJRD) for United Launch Alliance, a 50/50 joint venture of Boeing and Lockheed Martin (LMT), Oppenheimer thinks the market's reaction to the news ignores Aerojet's positive catalysts. The firm says that the news will not impact Aerojet's operations until 2019 and will probably not have an impact of more than about $115M. The firm keeps a $26 price target and Outperform rating on Aerojet.

16:34 EDTBAOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Wednesday
Stocks began the day in quiet fashion and remained that way during the first hour of trading. Following the release of the weekly energy inventory report, the averages moved lower and looked to be possibly setting up for another selloff. Positive comments on China's economy by its President, who is visiting the U.S., brought out buyers, who pared the market's losses. The averages finished slightly in the red in a day marked by low volume as a number of market participants may have been absent in observance of the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., Markit's flash manufacturing purchasing manager's index was flat at 53.0 in September, which was slightly better than the expectation for it to dip to 52.8. EIA inventory data showed a 1.93M barrel fall in crude oil inventories, versus expectations for a weekly drawdown of 1.25M barrels. In China, Markit's flash manufacturing PMI fell to 47.0 in September from 47.3 last month. In Europe, Markit's composite PMI for the eurozone came in at 53.9 in the first look for September, down from 54.3 in August and below expectations for a reading of 54.1. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Volkswagen (VLKAY) trading in New York rebounded 6.5% to $27.10 following the resignation of Chief Executive Officer Martin Winterkorn, with the company's supervisory board subsequently praising the decision and saying it will consider his replacement at a meeting Friday. Prior to the CEO change news, the stock was downgraded at research firms JPMorgan, Deutsche Bank and Natixis to hold or equivalent ratings this morning. Accounting for today's advance, U.S.-listed shares of Volkwagen are still down nearly 29% since last Friday, when the EPA publicly accused the automaker of equipping certain diesel cars sold in the U.S. with software that circumvented emissions standards... Against the backdrop of China's President Xi Jinping visiting the U.S., Boeing (BA) announced deals to sell 300 planes to three Chinese companies and set up an aircraft factory in China. The deals are possibly worth tens of billions of dollars in total and represent the largest total order the planemaker has received from Chinese companies, according to Reuters. The Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter, that Cisco (CSCO) plans to announce a partnership with Chinese server maker Inspur Group during President Xi Jinping's visit. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was First Niagara (FNFG), which advanced $1.30, or 14.5%, to $10.26 following a Bloomberg report that the company is exploring a sale. DealReporter noted that potential suitors include Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD), Huntington Bancshares (HBAN) and New York Community Bancorp (NYCB). BioMed Realty (BMR) gained $2.36, or 12.3%, to $21.54 after Bloomberg reported that the company is in talks to sell itself and has attracted attention from firms including Blackstone (BX). Heron Therapeutics (HRTX) rose $7.25, or 21.6%, to $40.81 after announcing that its Phase 2 study of HTX-011 for post-operative pain met its primary endpoint. Shares of a competitor Pacira (PCRX) declined 7.65% after the news, with several analysts remarking that Heron's data compares favorably versus Pacira's Exparel drug. Summit Midstream Partners (SMLP) declined $3.90, or 18.2%, to $17.52 following a Bloomberg report that Energy Capital Partners is seeking to sell its stake in the company. Synchronoss (SNCR) fell 10.75% to $33.37 after research firm Baird said it has become "increasingly concerned" that Verizon (VZ) is "no longer fully committed" to the white-label cloud product it offers in conjunction with the cloud services provider. INDEXES: The Dow fell 50.58, or 0.31%, to 16,279.89, the Nasdaq lost 3.98, or 0.08%, to 4,752.74, and the S&P 500 declined 3.98, or 0.2%, to 1,938.76.
