Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday, in spite of jobless claims that were higher than expected and disappointing results from Exxon Mobil (XOM). Stocks began the day quietly following the jobless claims data. The averages were mixed in the opening half hour but spurted higher following the March pending home sales report.

The Chicago Fed National Activity Index had a reading of -0.29. Pending home sales for the month of March were up 4.1% from the prior month, versus expectations of an increase of 1.0%... COMPANY NEWS: Exxon Mobil and UPS (UPS) both reported revenues and earnings that missed expectations, sending shares of both tumbling. Exxon slid almost 2% following its report, while UPS fell over 3%... Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) increased its dividend by 7%... Reuters reported that the SEC opened an informal inquiry into Chesapeake Energy's (CHK) well participation program as the company came out separately and said it did not review or approve of specific transactions made by its CEO Aubrey McClendon under that program... Among companies reporting earnings, advancers included Citrix Systems (CTXS), Equinix (EQIX), Xilinx (XLNX), Regeneron (REGN) and Pulte (PHM); decliners included Aetna (AET), Akamai (AKAM), Alcatel-Lucent (ALU) and MetroPCS (PCS)... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were SolarWinds (SWI), up 19%, after guiding to FY12 adjusted earnings that were above consensus at the midpoint, and Brinks (BCO), up over 17%, following results that beat on both the top and bottom line. Noteworthy losers included Leap Wireless (LEAP), down 20%, following downgrades at Raymond James and Guggenheim after its weak Q1 results, and NII Holdings (NIHD), down more than 18%, after its revenues and earnings disappointed... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 63.46, or 0.48%, to 13,154.18; the Nasdaq was up 6.61, or 0.22%, to 3,036.24; and the S&P 500 was up 2.62, or 0.19%, to 1,393.31.

17:52 EDTUPSUPS pilots President issues statement on FedEx/ALPA tentative agreement
The following statement is from Captain Robert Travis, President of the Independent Pilots Association regarding the tentative pilot labor agreement between FedEx (FDX) and ALPA: "We congratulate our pilot peers and FedEx on reaching a new tentative collective bargaining agreement. While we have not seen the details, the IPA will refrain from commenting on the merits of the tentative agreement until the ALPA ratification process has been completed. If approved, however, the FedEx pilot contract will bring labor peace to our largest competitor. In sharp contrast, UPS (UPS) management has created a bitter standoff with its pilot employees, unnecessarily dragging out contract talks for four years. UPS must not allow itself to be left behind by FedEx. The IPA calls on UPS management to work with its pilots to expeditiously achieve an agreement."

06:10 EDTXOMAuction for drilling leases attracts little interest, NY Times reports
A federal auction for drilling leases in the Gulf of Mexico Wednesday attracted only $22.7M in sales from five companies, the lowest since 1986, reports the New York Times. Most companies have insisted they would not sacrifice production in future years, but executives have recently expressed concern that the oil price collapse could last through 2016 and possibly even 2017. Publicly traded companies in the space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Exxon Mobil (XOM), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). Reference Link

06:50 EDTAKAMAkamai reports Q2 DDoS attack traffic up 7% vs. Q1
Akamai Technologies announced the availability of the Q2 State of the Internet - Security Report. For the past three quarters, there has been a doubling in the number of DDoS attacks year over year. And while attackers favored less powerful but longer duration attacks this quarter, the number of dangerous mega attacks continues to increase. In Q2, there were 12 attacks peaking at more than 100 Gigabits per second, or Gbps, and five attacks peaking at more than 50 Million packets per second, or Mpps. Very few organizations have the capacity to withstand such attacks on their own. The largest DDoS attack of Q2 measured more than 240 gigabits per second, or Gbps, and persisted for more than 13 hours. Peak bandwidth is typically constrained to a one to two hour window. Q2 also saw one of the highest packet rate attacks ever recorded across the Prolexic Routed network, which peaked at 214 Mpps. That attack volume is capable of taking out tier 1 routers, such as those used by Internet service providers, or ISPs. DDoS attack activity set a new record in Q2 , increasing 132% compared to Q2 of 2014 and increasing 7% compared to Q1. Average peak attack bandwidth and volume increased slightly in Q2 compared to Q1, but remained significantly lower than the peak averages observed in Q2 of 2014. SYN and Simple Service Discovery Protocol, or SSDP, were the most common DDoS attack vectors this quarter - each accounting for approximately 16% of DDoS attack traffic. The proliferation of unsecured home-based, Internet-connected devices using the Universal Plug and Play, or UPnP, Protocol continues to make them attractive for use as SSDP reflectors. Practically unseen a year ago, SSDP attacks have been one of the top attack vectors for the past three quarters. SYN floods have continued to be one of the most common vectors in all volumetric attacks, dating back to the first edition of the security reports in Q3 of 2011. Online gaming has remained the most targeted industry since Q2 of 2014, consistently being targeted in about 35% of DDoS attacks. China has remained the top source of non-spoofed attack traffic for the past two quarters, and has been among the top three source countries since the very first report was issued in Q3 of 2011.
