15:03 EDTTWTRTwitter founder Dorsey reported to be named permanent CEO
Shares of Twitter (TWTR) remain about 3% higher in afternoon trading after Re/code reported that founder and interim CEO Jack Dorsey is set to be named permanent Chief Executive. DORSEY: Jack Dorsey is expected to be named permanent CEO of Twitter as soon as Thursday, Re/code's Kara Swisher and Kurt Wagner reported this afternoon, citing sources. The company is also likely to reconfigure its board of directors, beginning with the departure of former CEO Dick Costolo, the report said. DUAL ROLES: Re/code noted that Dorsey will remain as CEO of Square, the payments company he founded in 2009. As recently as September 25, Fortune reported that Square plans to file for an initial public offering within weeks, and in a thinly-veiled reference to Dorsey's commitments to Square, the Twitter board of directors has previously commented that running the micro-blogging site requires a "full-time commitment." PRODUCT CHANGES: Re/code reported on Tuesday that Twitter is looking to break its trademark 140-character limit with new long-form content products. The news comes as Twitter struggles to expand its user base and appeal to advertisers, having launched multiple ad products in recent months while overhauling its front page to capture so-called logged out users. PRICE ACTION: Twitter shares are up about 3% to $26.33 in afternoon trading following Re/code's report.

13:19 EDTTWTROn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply lower at midday, with each of the major indexes down more than 1%. Continued weakness in Asia and a lack of clarity regarding the Fed's rate decision last week has kept buyers on the sidelines while the sellers have had their way. Lowered guidance from Dow component Caterpillar (CAT) has weighed on the market in addition to some economic data points that were below expectations. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims were 267,000, versus expectations for 272,000 first-time claims. Durable goods orders for August declined 2.0%, versus expectations for a drop of 2.3%. When transportation items were removed, the core reading was breakeven, versus expectations for a rise of 0.1%. The Chicago Fed National Activity Index had a reading of -0.41, versus expectations of +0.24. New home sales jumped 5.7% in August to a 552,000 rate, versus expectations for a rise of 1.6% to a 515,000 rate. In Asia, Japan's stock market reopened for the first time since Friday and the Nikkei suffered a nearly 3% decline as it caught up to other global market trends in the week-to-date. The slide came despite Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe unveiling new economic targets, including a goal for a 20% increase in the target size of the Japanese economy to 600T yen, though he gave no timeframe for achieving this aspiration. Elsewhere, Norway and Taiwan both cut interest rates this morning. The Norges Bank lowered rates by 25 basis points to 0.75%, while Taiwan cut its benchmark by 12.5 basis points to 1.75% in the nation's first lowering of rates since 2009. COMPANY NEWS: A slide in shares of Caterpillar weighed on the Dow Jones Industrial Average after the heavy machinery maker announced plans for job cuts and lowered its revenue guidance for this year and next. Caterpillar said that it would lay off 4,000-5,000 of its employees between now and the end of 2016 and could lay off up to 10,000 employees by 2018. Before the news was announced, research firm Axiom initiated coverage of Caterpillar with a Sell rating and $28 price target, which its shares were 5.7% closer to at midday following their swoon. Other mining and agriculture equipment makers, including Joy Global and Deere (DE), were also weaker following the Dow member's announcement. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Arrowhead Research (ARWR), which rose 18% after disclosing top-line findings from the Heparc-2001 Phase 2a clinical study of ARC-520, its candidate for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B infection. Also higher was Hudson City Bancorp (HCBK), the parent company of Hudson City Savings Bank, which gained 3% after the bank, the Justice Department and CFPB reached a settlement to resolve allegations that the bank engaged in a pattern or practice of "redlining" predominantly Black and Hispanic neighborhoods in its residential mortgage lending practices. Notably, settling the allegations may pave the way for the bank to close out a proposed merger with M&T Bank (MTB). Among the noteworthy losers was Sientra (SIEN), which dropped 42% after disclosing that the U.K.'s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency announced the suspension of the CE certificate for all medical devices made by Silimed, the company's contract manufacturer. Also lower were shares of Twitter (TWTR), which slid 4% after Citi cut its estimates below consensus and lowered its price target on the microblog service operator to $30. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 186.90, or 1.15%, to 16,092.99, the Nasdaq was down 56.64, or 1.19%, to 4,696.10, and the S&P 500 was down 20.18, or 1.04%, to 1,918.58.

08:51 EDTTWTRCiti 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).
