Stocks ended the week higher as stronger than expected economic data and upbeat results from a number of companies lifted shares. MACRO NEWS: In the U.S., existing home sales for September and leading economic indicators for the month beat expectations, while weekly jobless claims were roughly in-line with expectations. Markit's “flash” manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index for October came in at 56.2, versus the consensus forecast for a 57.0 reading... China reported that its GDP rose 7.3% in Q3, above the 7.2% growth expected by economists.

COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT), Harley-Davidson (HOG), Yahoo (YHOO), Caterpillar (CAT), diversified manufacturer 3M (MMM) and chip maker Broadcom (BRCM) were among the companies that reported higher than expected profits.

13:18 EDTYHOOYahoo earnings beat, Alibaba stake sale details send shares higher
Shares of Yahoo (YHOO) are climbing after the company's third quarter earnings and revenue topped estimates. Additionally, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer said that it had obtained net proceeds of $6B from its sale of shares in Alibaba (BABA) during the latter company's IPO. The country's top tax experts are "working intensively" to reduce Yahoo's tax liability on its sale of the Alibaba stake, said Mayer, adding that Yahoo will provide more information about its strategy for accomplishing that goal in January. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Yahoo reported Q3 earnings per share of 52c, topping the consensus forecast of 30c, and revenue excluding Traffic Acquisition Costs of $1.09B, which also beat consensus. Yahoo's after-tax windfall from the sale of its Alibaba stake during the Chinese company's IPO totaled about $6B, Mayer said on the company's earnings conference call last night. Yahoo intends to return at least 50% of that total, or about $3B, to shareholders, the CEO noted. Last quarter, Yahoo intensified its share repurchases as part of that commitment, she added. Yahoo still holds 384M shares of Alibaba, worth $34B before taxes, Mayer pointed out. The Internet company has hired top tax experts who are "working intensively" in an effort to reduce the company's tax liability on the sale of these shares, the CEO stated. Yahoo will provide more information to investors about this issue in January, Mayer indicated. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, FBR Capital analyst William Bird upgraded Yahoo to Outperform from Market Perform. Yahoo appears to be working on shielding its Asian assets from taxes and the company's tax saving initiatives could be worth $13 per share, Bird stated. The company's decision to share information about these initiatives sooner than expected is also positive for the stock, he contended. Bird raised his price target on the stock to $50 from $40. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Yahoo climbed over 5% to $42.30.
