16:16 EDTWFC, JPM, GOOG, AAPL, LNG, CSTR, PWAV, TLBOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower, as a report that indicated slowing growth in China weighed on sentiment. Stock futures were lower in pre-market trading, leading to a lower open for the market. The selling gained momentum following the slightly disappointing University of Michigan consumer confidence reading. The averages pared their losses by midday but weakness in shares of Google (GOOG) and Apple (AAPL) kept the Nasdaq lagging the other averages. As the news flow began to slow the market drifted in a narrow range, until a late sell-off pushed the averages to new lows into the closing bell... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the headline consumer price index rose 0.3% in March, while the core reading which removes food and energy was up 0.2%, with both readings matching expectations. The consumer sentiment index fell to 75.7, versus expectations of 76.2. In China, the nation's gross domestic product grew at its slowest pace in three years, rising only 8.1%, when published forecasts were near 8.4% and "whisper numbers" for the growth rate were even higher. In Europe, the cost of insuring against a Spanish default jumped to an all-time record as investors fear the nation may become the fourth, and by far the largest, euro-region member to need a bailout... COMPANY NEWS: Wells Fargo (WFC) and JP Morgan (JPM), the nation's two largest home lenders, kicked off bank earnings season by reporting better than expected profits, with strong mortgage results helping revenue at both. However, both banks slid amid a broad decline in financial stocks, with Wells Fargo falling $1.18, or 3.47%, to $32.84 and JP Morgan losing $1.63, or 3.64%, to $43.21... Google's earnings beat consensus estimates but more attention was paid to the company's announcement of a novel new share structure. Google's creation of a new class of nonvoting shares, to be distributed to existing stockholders effectively producing a 2-for-1 stock split, will let the company issue new shares without diluting the founders’ voting power, which raised concern among corporate-governance watchdogs... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Cheniere Energy (LNG), up $1.12, or 7.13%, to $16.82, ahead of the government's decision on the company's request to build a Louisiana plant to export liquefied natural gas, and Coinstar (CSTR), up $4.47, or 7.29%, to $65.78, after the company pre-announced higher than expected quarterly results. Noteworthy losers included Powerwave Technologies (PWAV), down 84c, or 39.07%, to $1.31, following its forecast of Q1 revenue well below the consensus estimate, and Talbots (TLB), down 46c, or 14.70%, to $2.67, after its Q4 results and Q1 guidance both disappointed... INDICES: The Dow lost 136.99, or 1.05%, to 12,849.59; the Nasdaq fell 44.22, or 1.45%, to 3,011.33; and the S&P 500 dropped 17.31, or 1.25%, to 1,370.26.

12:52 EDTGOOGEarnings Preview: Google shares up 4.5% since last earnings report
Google (GOOG, GOOGL) is expected to report second quarter earnings after the market close on Thursday, July 17 with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. Google is a global technology company that focuses on Internet search, cloud computing, and advertising technologies. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $6.24 on revenue of $15.62B. The consensus range is $5.73-$6.64 for EPS, and $15.36B-$15.94B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Google reported first quarter EPS of $6.27 against estimates of $16.40 on revenue of $15.42B against estimates of $15.52B. Google reported Q1 paid clicks up 26% and average cost-per-click decreased 9%. The company also reported Q1 Sites revenue $10.47B and Q1 Network revenue $3.4B. Google said it expects to continue to make "significant capital expenditures" and reported free cash flow in Q1 of $2.05B. NEWS: Google announced several acquisitions in the past quarter, most notably for music streaming service Songza, live video-streaming service Twitch, and high-res imaging satellite maker Skybox Imaging. The company also expanded Shopping Express to New York and other parts of California, including Los Angeles. There were also reports that Google has set aside $500M to expand the service worldwide. Bloomberg reported the company intends to spend a "significant portion" of its offshore cash to make acquisitions with nearly $20B-$30B on foreign companies and foreign technology rights. Google also entered the domain registration business through an invite-only beta website, may likely overhaul Google+ in the near future, and is said to be developing a 7-inch tablet that can capture 3D images. At Google's I/O opening keynote in June, the company said Android had over 1B users, Chrome for Mobile had 300M active users and Google Drive has over 190M active users. STREET RESEARCH: Cantor said the company's revenue growth relative to CapEx has declined in the past several years as it has spent less efficiently on growth than its peers. Susquehanna, on the other hand, said Google's recent underperformance has created a buying opportunity due to favorite mix shift and strong core growth at Google.com and YouTube. Ahead of the Q2 earnings report, Google's price target was also raised at Citigroup after channel checks with search marketing companies suggested the business accelerated slightly in Q2. PRICE ACTION: Google shares have risen 4.5% since the first day of trading following the company's Q1 report. In Wednesday afternoon trading ahead of Q2 report, Google shares are down a little over 1.5%.
