Analyst Update: Acquisitions, Upcoming Earnings, Financial Results, Lawsuits and Change in Management
Reviewed by: Rohit Tuli, CFA®
US stocks ended marginally lower on Thursday, as worries about upcoming corporate earnings reports offset enthusiasm about a trio of soaring Wall Street debuts. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 6.84 points, or 0.04%, to end at 18,105.77; the S&P 500 lost 1.64 points, or 0.08%, to 2,104.99; and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 3.23 points, or 0.06%, to 5,007.79. European markets finished broadly lower on Thursday with growing concerns about Greece's debt situation prompting investors to take some profits after the previous session's 14-year highs. The DAX closed 1.94% lower, France's CAC 40 declined by 0.57% and London's FTSE 100 declined by 0.51%. The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index closed 0.9% lower at 1,635.76 points. Chinese shares rebounded on stimulus hopes a day after gloomy first-quarter economic numbers with the Shanghai composite index rising 2.1% to 4,168.85, while other Asian benchmarks were mixed.
Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) appears to be set out for an aggressive acquisitions spree. On April 14, 2015, the Company announced that it has acquired Datazen Software, an industry leader in mobile business intelligence and data visualization on Windows, iOS and Android devices.
Facebook Inc. (FB) is scheduled to release its next earnings report on April 22, 2015, and analysts are expecting it to post earnings of $0.40 per share on $3.56 billion in revenue for the first quarter. According to Ad automaker software firm Nanigans reports, Facebook's new products are gaining traction as new ad products are being adopted by more and more marketers.
Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO), on February 11, 2015, announced its financial results for the second quarter (period ended January 24, 2015). The company reported total revenue of $11.9 billion, up 7.0% YoY. Net income on a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis rose by 67.7% YoY to $2.4 billion or $0.46 per share while non-GAAP net income was up by 8.9% YoY to $2.7 billion or $0.53 per share during the quarter.
AT&T Inc. (T) has also filed a lawsuit seeking to overturn the government's recent net neutrality order on April 14, 2015. A report published by WSJ stated that the move by AT&T was a surprise, because most expected companies would let their industry groups handle the legal challenges.
Zynga Inc. (ZNGA) shares plunged 17.9% on April 9, 2015, its highest intraday fall since July 26, 2012 (Thursday), after the Company announced that CEO Don Mattrick has resigned and founder, former CEO Mark Pincus would retake the position.
