16:36 EDTUTXOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher after a report showed existing homes sales hit their fastest pace in a year during September and Apple (AAPL) gave a better than expected sales forecast for its December quarter. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., existing home sales beat estimates in September, rising 2.4% from the prior month to a 5.17M rate. In China, GDP slowed to 7.3% year-over-year growth pace in Q3 from 7.5% in Q2, though that was slightly better than expected. Chinese industrial production expanded at a 8.0% rate in September, which was well above projections and up from 6.9% growth in August. China's retail sales grew 11.6% in September compared to the prior year, which was nearly in-line with expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple rose $2.71, or 2.72%, to $102.47 after the company reported better than expected quarterly results and gave a better than expected forecast for its sales during the holiday quarter. Following last night's report, analysts at Cantor Fitzgerald said the iPhone maker "executed impressively" in Q4 and provided a strong outlook for Q1. The firm, which believes investors should "start thinking more boldly" about the company, raised its price target for shares to $143 from $123 and kept a Buy rating on the stock... Five of the Dow's 30 members reported on their quarterly results this morning and Coca-Cola (KO) was the clear loser in the bunch. The soda giant's shares dropped $2.61, or 6.03%, to $40.68 after its revenue missed expectations, it warned that it now expects to be below its long-term EPS growth target for 2014, and the company announced new cost-saving measures. Among the other four, McDonald’s (MCD) fell 0.63%, Verizon (VZ) added 0.43%, United Technologies (UTX) gained 0.49%, and Travelers (TRV) rose 1.12%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were medical equipment manufacturer Waters (WAT), which rose $9.63, or 9.87%, to $107.17, and motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson (HOG), which advanced $4.27, or 7.31%, to $62.65. Among the noteworthy losers was Ocwen Financial (OCN), which plunged $4.78, or 18.2%, to $21.48 after the company was called out by the New York Department of Financial Services for erroneously dated letters to borrowers. Benjamin Lawsky, the Superintendent for the NYDFS, stated in his letter to the company that if his department concludes it cannot trust Ocwen's systems and processes, "then it cannot trust Ocwen is complying with the law." Also lower following their earnings reports were Mexican restaurant operator Chipotle (CMG), which fell $45.48, or 6.96%, to $607.55, and defense contractor Lockheed Martin (LMT), which slid $2.92, or 1.66%, to $172.61. INDEXES: The Dow gained 215.14, or 1.31%, to 16,614.81, the Nasdaq advanced 103.40, or 2.4%, to 4,419.48, and the S&P 500 rose 37.27, or 1.96%, to 1,941.28.

12:36 EDTUTXUnited Technologies technical notes ahead of earnings
In the past three months the shares have traded down more than 10%, underperforming the broader averages. The trend is distinctly down in the past three months, but that is part of a larger trend that began after price peaked in early June of this year. The long-term uptrend line has also been broken by this recent price action, leaving the technical picture distinctly bearish. If earnings and outlook continue to be below expectations, next support would be at $99.83. Additional downside objectives, on an increasing scale of bearish news, may be at the following support levels: $96.53, $92.94, and $91.15. If the news surprises on the upside, first major resistance would be at $106.07. A move above that level would put the stock back on a more neutral price path. Additional upside objectives might be at resistance at $109.22, and $110.06.

11:58 EDTERJTextron rallies after better than expected Q3 EPS, raising FY14 profit outlook
Shares of aircraft and defense company Textron (TXT) are advancing after the firm reported better than expected third quarter earnings per share and raised its profit outlook for fiscal 2014. WHAT'S NEW: Textron this morning reported Q3 EPS from continuing operations of 57c and revenue of $3.43B, compared to consensus of 52c and $3.63B, respectively. Aviation revenue for the quarter came in at $1.08B, Bell revenue was $1.18B, Systems revenue was $358M, Industrial revenue was $785M and Finance revenue was $25M for the quarter. Chief Executive Officer Scott Donnelly said commented that the increased revenues at Aviation, Industrial and Bell primarily reflected the success of its new product investment and acquisition strategies. Donnelly said the company achieved significant margin improvement in the quarter at Textron Aviation, which reflected higher volumes and better performance. Bell also had improved performance in Q3, Donnelly said, leading to an increase in quarterly margins compared to last year. WHAT’S NOTABLE: The company raised its FY14 EPS from continuing operations view to $2.05-$2.15 from $1.92-$2.12, in line with analysts' consensus estimates of $2.07. Textron also raised its FY14 outlook for cash flow from continuing operations of the manufacturing group before pension contributions to $700M-$800M, with expected pension contributions of around $83M. On the company's earnings conference call, management said it saw a pickup of orders in September and October in the new aircraft market. The company said it is also seeing significant contributions from its M&A investments. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Textron rose $4.16, or about 12.4%, to $37.82 on heavy trading volume. Including today’s advance, the stock has gained approximately 36% over the past twelve months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the aircraft and defense business include Boeing (BA), up 2.6%, Spirit Aerosystems (SPR), up 3.8%, and Embraer SA (ERJ) up 3.9%.
