16:42 EDTWYNNOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the day almost unchanged as investors awaited the testimony from Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen before a Senate panel. Following her prepared remarks, which suggested the central bank will not rush to raise interest rates, buyers stepped in to push the market higher. The Dow moved to all-time highs, as did the S&P, while the Nasdaq extended its most recent streak that saw the index close higher for nine consecutive sessions for the first time that has happened since 2009. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen stated in prepared testimony to Congress that the central bank considers it "unlikely" that economic conditions will warrant an increase in the target range for the federal funds rate for "at least the next couple" of FOMC meetings. Yellen also said that while the drop in oil prices will have negative effects on energy producers and will probably result in job losses in this sector, it will likely be a significant overall net positive for the U.S. economy. The S&P Case-Shiller 20-city house price index reported a seasonally adjusted monthly increase of 0.9%, versus expectations for an increase of 0.6%. Markit's services PMI for February came in at 57.0, versus consensus of 54.5. The Conference Board consumer confidence index declined in February to 96.4, which was down from last month's revised 103.8 figure and below the consensus 99.5 forecast. The Richmond Fed manufacturing index for February came in at 0, versus the consensus expectation for a reading of 6.

First Solar shares also advanced $5.06, or 10.19%, to $54.70 during the session, though its shares are fractionally lower in after-hours trading after the company issued its own earnings report. Among the noteworthy losers was Rosetta Resources (ROSE), which fell $3.29, or 15.04%, to $18.58 after its weaker than expected Q4 report and lowered guidance was followed by at least five analyst downgrades of its stock.

07:08 EDTPENNPenn National upgraded at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill upgraded Penn National to Buy from Neutral. The firm views Penn National as the regional stock to own for a segment recovery and notes January 2015 gross gaming revenues had the biggest increase since 2006 and February is tracking strong. This, and improving low end consumer commentary at other operators and easy comps, makes risk-reward more favorable. Price target raised to $20 from $17.
