15:24 EDTFBFacebook technical comments ahead of results
The shares have been stuck in a range of $59 at the low to a high of $65 since hitting peak price in early March. These bounds of range give us a guide for knowing when shares will have resolved, bullishly or bearishly. On better than expected news, a breakout above $65 would confirm that the shares are back on a bullish footing. Similarly, a breakdown below $59 would be an indication of deteriorating technicals and would be bearish for price. Resistance above $65 is at $67.09, and then at $69.63. Support below $59 is at $56.30, and then at $53.53.

12:52 EDTFBEarnings Preview: Facebook shares up more than 15% since last earnings report
Facebook (FB) is expected to report first quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, April 23 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Facebook is a social networking service with over 1B active users. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 24c on revenue of $2.36B. The consensus range is 19c-30c for EPS, and $2.14B-$2.52B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Facebook reported fourth quarter EPS of 31c against estimates of 27c, on revenue of $2.59B against estimates of $2.33B. The company reported daily active users of 757M on average for December, with Q4 revenue from advertising up 76% year-over-year to $2.34B. Mobile advertising revenue in Q4 represented 53% of the advertising revenue. NEWS: Facebook acquired messaging service WhatsApp for $16B, believing it is on a "clear path" to having 1B users and CEO Mark Zuckerberg saying it is "probably" worth more than $19B. WhatsApp recently announced that there are half a billion regular users of the app. Facebook also acquired Oculus for $2B, and the Wall Street Journal reported it acquired Titan Aerospace for an undisclosed amount. In the past quarter, Instagram reported over 200M monthly active users by the end of March. STREET RESEARCH: Analysts were mixed on Facebook's acquisition of WhatsApp. Piper Jaffray said the acquisition was neutral at best and is "beyond the typical overpaying." Facebook was downgraded at Argus due to possible risks in acquisition including a substantial write down should the texting platform not reach a billion users. Jeffries, on the other hand, said the acquisition could disrupt the global paid messaging industry. JMP Securities adds the acquisition is highly strategic and Stifel says it helps mute the risk that Google (GOOG) could enter the social media and communications market in a real way. The company's price target was raised at Sterne Agee, UBS, and Citigroup following the acquisition with Sterne Agee saying the application could reach 2B users and generate ARPU of $2.50 at 80% margins over the long-term. Analysts were more positive on the Oculus acquisition, with Piper Jaffray calling it a "major offensive move for the future" and JMP Securities saying it could create new opportunities over the next 5-10 years. Pacific Crest, however, says Facebook is unlikely to receive a significant return on the deal any time soon. Ahead of Q1 earnings, SunTrust says shares should be bought due to a rebounding revenue growth. Deutsche Bank and JMP Securities say that consensus estimates are catching up and the strong Q1 results may have already been factored into the consensus numbers. PRICE ACTION: Facebook shares have gained over $8.00, or over 15%, since the first day of trading following the company's Q4 report. In Wednesday afternoon trading ahead of its Q1 report, Facebook shares are down 2.25%.

10:06 EDTFBFacebook rises after Credit Suisse ups rating ahead of earnings
Shares of Facebook (FB) are climbing after Credit Suisse upgraded the stock in a note to investors last night. WHAT'S NEW: Credit Suisse analyst Stephen Ju now expects Facebook to obtain more revenue, on average, from each of its users than the firm had previously anticipated. New products that Facebook is developing should enable the company to obtain more revenue over the medium to long term without boosting its ad loads, the analyst contends. Other analysts are underestimating the amount of revenue that Facebook's new products will generate, added Ju. He upgraded Facebook to Outperform from Neutral and raised his price target on the shares to $87 from $65. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Yesterday research firm JMP Securities increased its first quarter estimates for Facebook, saying that the company's investments are causing advertisers to buy more ads on the website. The firm expects the social network's ad sales to continue to be strong as it launches new types of ads. It reiterated an $82 price target and Outperform rating on the stock. Facebook is expected to report first quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, April 23, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Facebook climbed $1.47, or 2.4%, to $62.71.

16:39 EDTYELPOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply lower as selling pressure took hold early in the session and did not relent. The averages closed near their worst levels, with the tech-heavy Nasdaq down more than 3%. With today's close, each of the major indexes is now lower for the year. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial claims for unemployment benefits fell to 300K last week, hitting their lowest weekly level since May 2007. The the timing of Easter and Passover, as well as other seasonal factors, however, may have lead many to discount the figure. Export prices rose 0.8% in March, while import prices grew 0.6%, both of which were greater than expected advances. In China, exports fell 6.6% from a year earlier in March, while imports plunged 11.3%. Economists had predicted year-over-year gains for both. COMPANY NEWS: eBay (EBAY) and activist investor Carl Icahn settled their proxy contest, with Icahn withdrawing both his two board nominees and his proposal for eBay to spin off its PayPal unit. As part of its agreement with Icahn, eBay will expand the number of independent directors on its board to 10 and add David Dorman to serve in that capacity. The online retail marketplace was among the many tech names suffering losses, closing the session down $1.81, or 3.24%, at $54.08... Ally Financial (ALLY), formerly the auto finance and financial services arm of General Motors (GM), lost $1.02, or 4.08%, to close at $23.98 in its first day of trade following its return to the public markets after having price its return offering at $25.00 per share... General Motors made news again as well by confirming that two of its engineers have been placed on paid leave as part of the company's ongoing ignition switch recall probe. The company also added ignition lock cylinders to its safety recall of 2.2 million vehicles in the U.S. and said it expects to take a $1.3B charge in the first quarter due to recall-related repairs... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was drugstore operator Rite Aid (RAD), which rose 54c, or 8.44%, to $6.94 after reporting earnings and revenue and that beat expectations and giving a revenue outlook for its fiscal 2015 that came in above estimates. Also higher following a better than expected earnings report was casual restaurant owner Ruby Tuesday (RT), which advanced 72c, or 12.08%, to $6.68. Among the noteworthy losers was data security solutions provider Imperva (IMPV), down $21.73, or 43.7%, to $28.00 which plunged 41% after the company slashed its first quarter profit and sales outlook. Another name in computer security, FireEye (FEYE), was among a a number of so-called "momentum" stocks that fell during the session, sliding $6.64, or 11.77%, to $49.75. Other momentum stocks that fell included 3D Systems (DDD), down $5.90, or 10.79%, to $48.78, and Yelp (YELP), down $7.78, or 10.92%, to $63.47. INDEXES: The Dow was down 266.96, or 1.62%, to 16,170.22, the Nasdaq was down 129.79, or 3.1%, to 4,054.11, and the S&P 500 was down 39.10, or 2.09%, to 1,833.08.
