14:46 EDTABBVAbbVie technical comments ahead of earnings, levels to watch
The shares have been trending down since hitting the 52-week high of $70.76 back in early December of last year. At the current price of $63.01, the first important support level to watch on negative news or outlook would be at the 200-day moving average, last at $58.04. A test and a bounce there would be bullish, while a breakdown would be bearish for the longer-term uptrend. Levels to watch below the 200-day are at $56.51, and then at $55.80. If the news is a positive surprise, the first resistance level of note as a potential upside objective is at the $65 area. A breakout above $65 would turn the trend to bullish, with next resistance levels at $67.16, $68.29, and the 52-week high at $70.76.

14:40 EDTMO, RAI, LOEarnings Preview: Analysts optimistic on Altria Group ahead of results
Altria Group (MO) is expected to report fourth quarter earnings before the market opens on Friday, January 30, with a conference call scheduled for 9:00 am ET. Altria Group is a holding company whose segments include smokeable tobacco products, smokeless tobacco products and wine. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 67c on revenue of $4.53B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 64c-68c on revenue of $4.47B-$4.6B. LAST QUARTER: Altria reported higher than expected third quarter profit and revenue, and reaffirmed its fiscal 2014 adjusted EPS view of $2.54-$2.59, against consensus at the time of $2.57. The company said it expects stronger adjusted diluted EPS growth in the fourth quarter as compared to the first three quarters in 2014, driven by several factors, including a significantly lower fourth-quarter effective tax rate on operations compared to the fourth quarter of 2013 resulting from Altria’s 2013 debt tender offer, and lower fourth-quarter costs in the smokeable products segment due to the end of the federal tobacco quota buy-out payments. STREET RESEARCH: Earlier in January, Nomura upgraded Altria to Buy from Neutral saying it believes the Reynolds (RAI) acquisition of Lorillard (LO) will likely be approved, in some form, and result in better industry pricing, which will benefit Altria. As part of the upgrade, the firm raised Altria's price target to $56 from $45. Additionally, Wells Fargo upgraded Altria to Outperform from Market Perform, calling the U.S. Tobacco sector the "place to be" in consumer staples in 2015. Wells upgraded Altria Group with an increased price target range of $56-$58. PRICE ACTION: Altria shares are up about 14% over the last three months, and are up fractionally to $54.24 in afternoon trading ahead of the company's Q4 report Friday morning.

14:25 EDTTreasury Closing Summary:
Treasury Closing Summary: Yields backed and filled on Thursday after collapsing the day prior with lower stocks and oil. A double dose of intermediate supply totaling some $64 B in 5- and 7-year notes cast a long shadow over the market and provided some cover for the long-squaring. Fresh trend lows in crude near $43 bbl, however, helped keep a lid on yields along with a dive in pending home sales. Jobless claims plummeted during the MLK week, which took some starch out of that release. A third consecutive rate cut by the Danes to -0.5% got the market's attention as well.

14:00 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY has managed to hold near its highs
FX Action: USD-JPY has managed to hold near its highs of 118.48. as Wall Street attempts a recovery, and as yields stabilize to a degree. The pairing has traded inside of 117.20 and 118.80 for over a week now, centered on the 118.00 mark, with more of the same likely in the near term. Risk taking levels will need to pick up if an upside breakout is to occur, though U.S. equity market sentiment remains decidedly unclear for now.
