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.

13:08 EDTETNEaton rallies, Tyco falls after Barclays swaps ratings
Shares of industrial products maker Eaton (ETN) are rising while peer Tyco (TYC) is falling after analysts at Barclays upgraded the former and downgraded the latter. WHAT'S NEW: Noting that Eaton had tumbled 23.5% so far this year and Tyco had risen 1.2%, Barclays analyst Scott Davis wrote that the disparity between the stocks' valuations had become too extreme. Although Tyco faces slightly less risk and its management has been more effective than Eaton's, the two companies' profit growth is "comparable,” the analyst stated. Meanwhile, Eaton's valuation looks too low, as the stock price appears to anticipate that the company's profits will be as much as 20% below the consensus outlook, which is unlikely to occur in the near-term, Davis believes. According to Davis, the industrial sector is still in the midst of a generally positive trend although it's undergoing "a healthy correction." Stocks that have been "overly punished", such as Eaton's are likely to advance, the analyst stated. Davis upgraded Eaton to Overweight from Equal Weight and cut his rating on Tyco to Equal Weight from Overweight. He kept a $78 price target on Eaton and a $48 price target on Tyco. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Eaton rose 2.5% to $60 and Tyco fell 3% to $40.
12:20 EDTETNOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after three of the nation's largest banks reported on their results in the most recent quarter of the year. The market began the session in positive territory but the move seemed tenuous and the averages were almost back in negative ground within a half hour of the opening bell. As the morning progressed and the bears were unable to gain control, the buyers emerged and pushed the Dow to a triple digit gain and the Nasdaq to an increase of nearly 1.5%. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the National Federation of Independent Business' small business optimism index came in at 95.3, versus the consensus expectation for a 95.8 reading. COMPANY NEWS: JPMorgan (JPM) swung to a third quarter profit, but its headline earnings per share fell below analysts’ consensus estimate. Of note, the company's press release on its results came out earlier than planned on Nasdaq's (NDAQ) Shareholder.com website, which the exchange operator attributed to an internal "human error." Wells Fargo (WFC) reported in-line earnings and stronger credit quality, but its stock slid 1.4% following the report. Citigroup (C) generated the most headlines, however, as it reported better than expected adjusted third quarter profit, announced plans to pull back from retail banking in eleven countries and said it will disband a legacy Banamex unit that provided personal security services after an investigation uncovered illegal conduct. Shares of Citi bucked the trend set by its two peers, rising 3% near noon... In addition to JPMorgan, Dow member Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) reported on its third quarter earnings. The drug and medical device giant reported better than expected profits and revenues and raised its FY14 EPS outlook, but the stock was fractionally lower near midday. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Energy Transfer Equity (ETE), which gained 8.5% after the stock was among the energy industry names upgraded this morning at RW Baird. Also higher was Skyworks (SWKS), which rose 11% after the company preannounced stronger than expected results that its CEO attributed to the "broad-based strength" of its business. Among the noteworthy losers was EnerNOC (ENOC), which dropped 11% after JPMorgan downgraded the stock to Neutral citing risk to the company's Demand Response revenue at PJM given the challenge to FERC Rule 745. Also lower was Tyco (TYC), which fell nearly 4% after Barclays downgraded the stock citing valuation and coupled the ratings change with an upgrade of Eaton (ETN). INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 133.38, or 0.82%, to 16,454.45, the Nasdaq was up 60.63, or 1.44%, to 4,274.29, and the S&P 500 was up 21.51, or 1.15%, to 1,896.25.
