16:44 EDTVOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Wednesday
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in positive territory, but turned negative shortly after the open. The downside move failed to gain momentum and the averages remained near the flat line for most of the morning. The market moved to session highs by mid-afternoon and drifted higher into the close, as investors prepared for another round of earnings reports. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., existing home sales rose 6.1% to a 5.19M rate in March, which was better than the expected 3.1% increase to a rate of 5.03M. Crude oil inventories built up by 5.32M barrels last week, which was more than the consensus forecast for a 3.2M barrel build. In Asia, Japan's Nikkei 225 average closed above 20,000 for the first time since April 2000. In Europe, Germany raised its economic growth forecast for 2015 to 1.8%, which was up from the 1.5% growth it said it expected in January. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Visa (V) rose $2.66, or 4.07%, to $68.01 and MasterCard (MA) advanced $3.43, or 3.91%, to $91.20 after China's State Council announced overnight that the country will regulate the market access for bankcard transaction clearing institutions, which analysts think might allow both companies to compete for the processing of domestic transactions in the country. Goldman Sachs said the overall rule is broader and simpler than expected, raising the possibility that Visa and MasterCard could operate more freely in China than the firm had previously expected... Shares of McDonald's (MCD) advanced $2.97, or 3.13%, to $97.84 after the company reported headline earnings that missed expectations but also said it is developing a turnaround plan to improve its performance and deliver "enduring profitable growth" that it plans to share in the first week of May. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Organovo (ONVO), which surged 67c, or 14.99%, to $5.14 after disclosing the company entered into a multi-year research collaboration agreement with Merck (MRK) that gives the drugmaker access to Organovo’s commercial exVive3D Human Liver Tissue service. Also higher was Vitamin Shoppe (VSI), which gained $5.54, or 14.22%, to $44.50 after asset management firm Carlson Capital revealed that it had obtained a 5.34% stake in the company and said that it had held talks with the retailer of natural treatments, supplements and vitamins. Among the noteworthy losers was Natural Resource Partners (NRP), which dropped $1.38, or 19.94%, to $5.54 after the company slashed its quarterly distribution by 75% to 9c per unit. Also lower were shares of Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), which fell $51.29, or 7.41%, to $641.23 after the company reported lower than expected first quarter comparable sales growth of 10.4%. INDEXES: The Dow rose 88.68, or 0.49%, to 18,038.27, the Nasdaq gained 21.07, or 0.42%, to 5,035.17, and the S&P 500 advanced 10.67, or 0.51%, to 2,107.96.

Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after having been on a bit of a see-saw during morning trading. The averages opened in positive territory, soon turned negative, then back into positive ground following the release of a better than expected existing home sales report. The housing data was followed by a lift in the averages, which remained in positive ground near noon. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., existing home sales rose 6.1% to a 5.19M rate in March, which was better than the expected 3.1% increase to a rate of 5.03M.

COMPANY NEWS: Shares of McDonald's (MCD) advanced 2% after the company reported headline earnings that missed expectations but also said it is developing a turnaround plan to improve its performance and deliver "enduring profitable growth" that it plans to share in the first week of May. Also rising after its quarterly report was another globally recognized brand, Coca-Cola (KO), whose shares gained 1% after its comparable earnings per share topped the consensus estimate. A third member of the Dow, Boeing (BA), slid over 2.5% after its earnings beat expectations but its revenue fell short of the consensus forecast... Visa (V) rose 5% and MasterCard (MA) advanced over 4% after China's State Council announced overnight that the country will regulate the market access for bankcard transaction clearing institutions, which analysts think might allow both companies to compete for the processing of domestic transactions in the country. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Angie's List (ANGI), which jumped 12% after the company reported it was profitable in the first quarter and announced an exclusive relationship that will see carpet manufacturer Shaw Industries give the company's members exclusive product offers. Also higher was ASML (ASML), which gained 11% after announcing that it has signed an agreement with one of its "major U.S. customers" to deliver a minimum of 15 ASML EUV, or Extreme Ultraviolet, lithography systems. Afterward, Summit Research said it thinks the most likely buyer is Intel (INTC), which the firm believes does not want to be left behind if TSMC (TSM) puts EUV to use in 10nm processing.

Also lower following their earnings reports were ADTRAN (ADTN), which fell over 9%, Cree (CREE), which slid 9%, and Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG), which declined 6%.
