JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) announced today that, following the Federal Reserve Board’s release of the 2014 Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) results, its Board of Directors intends to increase the quarterly common stock dividend to $0.40 per share, effective the second quarter of 2014. The Board has also authorized a common equity repurchase program to repurchase $6.5 billion of common equity between April 1, 2014, and March 31, 2015. This authorization includes shares repurchased to offset issuances under the Firm’s equity-based compensation plans.

The Federal Reserve Board informed the Firm that it does not object to the Firm’s proposed 2014 capital distribution plan.

Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase said: “We are pleased that our Board intends to raise the dividend and has authorized us to continue our equity buyback program. We anticipate reaching a Basel III Tier I common ratio of 10% by the end of this year, taking into account these capital actions and our ongoing investments in our growing businesses.”

The Firm’s dividends will be subject to the Board’s approval at the customary times those dividends are declared. The 2014 second quarter dividend, which the Board intends to increase to $0.40 per share, would be for shareholders of record on July 3, 2014, payable on July 31, 2014. Upon the declaration of a dividend in the second quarter of 2014 in an amount in excess of $0.38 per share, the Exercise Price and the Warrant Share Number for the warrants (as defined in the warrants) to purchase shares of common stock of the Firm may be adjusted. Further information regarding the warrants and adjustments to the warrant Exercise Price and the Warrant Share Number is available on the Firm’s website at jpmorganchase.com, under the heading Investor Relations, Shareholder Information: “Warrant Information.”

Repurchases of equity will be pursuant to the common equity repurchase program of $15.0 billion…

There are already indications that e-commerce giant, Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN)’s entry into the smartphone market could be disruptive. Just how disruptive is not known but based on some speculation, the answer might be “very.”

For starters, according to BGR, the phone, which has been years in development, was said to feature a custom 3D interface unlike anything currently on the market.

Although at first glance the device was said to look like most other smartphones, the glasses-free 3D capability, created by using an array of four front-facing cameras, provides a gateway to a whole host of new features.

Sources told BGR that there would be a main rear camera featuring 13-megapixel resolution, a standard front-facing camera for video chats, and four additional front-facing low-power infrared cameras designed to track the position of the user’s face and eyes.

Related: Report: Amazon 3D Smartphone Coming in June

However, Tech Crunch reported Tuesday that its sources said eye tracking was not part of the picture, creating some confusion regarding reported features in the new device.

The front-facing cameras would allow Amazon’s software to constantly adjust the position of on-screen elements and provide a 3D experience without the need for glasses.

Some, but not all, on-screen images would feature the 3D effect. Potentially this could include products in Amazon’s various stores.

Which leads to speculation about what might be the most groundbreaking feature of all, according to EE Times.That would be the potential ability of Amazon’s smartphone to track objects on the screen based on the user’s gaze.

Effectively, such a feature could allow software to zoom in on an object of interest, a box of cereal in a store for example.

UPDATE: Renewable Energy Group Now Sees Q1 Loss between 1.5-3.5M

Courtesy of Benzinga.

Renewable Energy Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: REGI) today announced its preliminary results for the first quarter of 2014 and announced the date for the Company’s first quarter 2014 earnings release.

For the first quarter, REG now expects to report a net earnings loss of $1.5 million to $3.5 million, adjusted EBITDA in the range of $1 million to $3 million, which is below the Company’s prior guidance of adjusted EBITDA in the range of $5 million to $15 million, and expects gallons sold to be at the lower end of the guided range of 45 to 55 million gallons. The original guidance reflected a lower margin environment than 2013 as the biodiesel market adjusts to the lapsed biodiesel tax credit and the delayed EPA RVO announcement. Our original guidance also assumed constant pricing for energy and feedstocks, however biodiesel prices decreased and feedstock costs increased more than expected. The unseasonably cold winter reduced overall diesel demand, as well as biodiesel blends and also increased REG’s utilities expenses, most notably a significant increase in natural gas prices. These factors combined to significantly tighten margins at the end of the quarter.

“Our performance this quarter was disappointing, yet not surprising in light of the harsh weather conditions that have impacted results in many industries across the U.S. economy,” said Daniel J. Oh, President and CEO. “A key element of our business model is the ability to generate positive adjusted EBITDA even under adverse conditions, and this quarter certainly demonstrated this. We will continue to focus on our operating results and long-term growth as the biodiesel industry adjusts to changed and uncertain regulatory conditions.”

Oh continued, “We remain optimistic about the long-term prospects for REG and the biodiesel industry. We look forward to discussing our first quarter financial results in more detail in early May, as well as discussing our strategic direction and recent initiatives at our analyst meeting in Washington, DC on April 22. We encourage interested investors to attend or to listen via the associated webcast.”

REG also announced that it will release financial results for the first quarter 2014 after the market close on Tuesday, May 6, 2014. An investor conference call will follow at 4:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. CT.…

Apache Agrees To Sell Western Canada Assets For US$374M

Courtesy of Benzinga.

Apache Corporation (NYSE, Nasdaq: APA) and its subsidiaries today announced an agreement to sell producing oil and gas assets in the Deep Basin area of western Alberta and British Columbia, Canada, for $374 million.

Incremental to Apache’s earlier $2 billion share re-purchase announcement, the company plans to use the proceeds of this transaction to buy back Apache common shares under the 30-million-share repurchase program that was authorized by Apache’s Board of Directors in 2013.

Apache is selling primarily dry gas-producing properties comprising 622,600 gross acres (328,400 net acres) in the Ojay, Noel and Wapiti areas in Alberta and British Columbia. In the Wapiti area, Apache will retain 100 percent of its working interest in horizons below the Cretaceous, retaining rights to the liquids-rich Montney and other deeper horizons. During 2013, production from the fields to be sold averaged 101 million cubic feet of natural gas and 1,500 barrels of liquid hydrocarbons per day.

The effective date of the transaction is Jan. 1, 2014, and it is expected to close on or about April 30. The transaction is subject to customary post-closing adjustments.

“This transaction is part of Apache’s portfolio rebalancing, which was undertaken last year to enable Apache to focus on growing liquids production from a deep inventory of crude oil- and liquids-rich opportunities in North America,” said G. Steven Farris, Apache’s chairman, chief executive officer and president.

“The sale of these natural gas assets – and other Canadian gas-producing properties sold last year – will permit Apache’s Canada Region to concentrate on liquids-rich opportunities that can provide more attractive rates of return and more predictable production growth,” Farris said.

Since the rebalancing was announced in 2013, Apache also divested operations on the Gulf of Mexico Shelf and in Argentina and sold a one-third interest in its Egypt operations.

Family Dollar to Cut Jobs, Shut 370 Stores (Fox Business)

Shares of Family Dollar Stores (NYSE: FDO) are down more than 2.9 percent following disappointing second quarter results and the company’s resulting actions to improve results.

In the press release, Chairman and CEO Howard R. Levine commented, “Our second quarter results did not meet our expectations. The 2013 holiday season was challenged by a more promotional competitive environment and a more financially constrained consumer. In addition, like many retailers, our second quarter results were significantly impacted by severe winter weather, which resulted in numerous store closings, disrupted merchandise deliveries and higher than expected utility and store maintenance expenses.”

Family Dollar announced that second quarter profit declined to $90.9 million, or $0.80 per share, versus a year-ago profit of $140.1 million, or $1.21 per share. Analysts were expecting earnings of $0.90 per share. The company reported revenue of $2.72 billion, coming in below analysts estimate of $2.77 billion. Family Dollar reported that same-store-sales were down 3.8 percent due to a decreased number in customer transactions, and partially offset by higher average customer transaction value.

In the first fiscal half of 2014, the company repurchased 1.8 million shares of its common stock for $125 million and paid $59.5 million in dividends to shareholders. Family Dollar opened 244 new stores and closed 22. The company renovated, relocated or expanded 319 stores.

Management expects comparable store sales to decline in the low-single-digit range in the third quarter. Family Dollar projects current-quarter earnings of $0.85 to $0.95 per share and full-year earnings of $3.05 to $3.25 per share. For fiscal 2014, the company assumes a decline in profit, capital expenditures between $450 million and $500 million, 525 new store openings, and 400 store closings.

To help minimize loss, increase efficiencies, and strengthen its value, Family Dollar announced four immediate strategic actions. The actions include,

  • “Investing significantly to lower prices on nearly 1,000 basic items to deliver even more

Both Sears Holdings and Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores have seen insider buying lately. So have Aircastle and Opko Health, which frequently see insiders scooping up shares.

Insiders may sell shares for any number of reasons, but conventional wisdom says that insiders really only buy shares of a company for one reason — they believe the stock price will rise and they want to profit from it. Pullbacks and sell-offs provide a perfect opportunity for investors who have faith in a company to snap up shares.

Here are some stocks that have seen insider buying recently.

Aircastle

Japanese trading company Marubeni Corp. has been scooping up batches of Aircastle (NYSE: AYR) shares since last August. That included more than 239,000 of them in the past two weeks, for more than $5.5 million. The jet-rental company Aircastle has been a rumored takeover target.

The market capitalization is about $1.5 billion and the long-term earnings per share (EPS) growth forecast is more than 34 percent. The dividend yield is about 4.3 percent. Shares have traded mostly between $18 and $20 since the end of October. Over the past six months, the stock has underperformed competitors Aercap and Air Lease.

UPDATE: American Express Plans to Increase Quarterly Dividend by 13% and Buy Back up to $4.4B of Common Shares in 2014

Courtesy of Benzinga.

American Express Company (NYSE: AXP) said today that the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System did not object to its capital plan submitted on January 6, 2014 as part of the 2014 Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR). The plan included: — increasing the Company’s quarterly dividend to 26 cents per share beginning with the second quarter 2014 dividend declaration, subject to approval by the Company’s board of directors;

— repurchasing up to $4.4 billion of common shares during 2014 and up to an additional $1.0 billion in the first quarter of 2015. Repurchase of common shares will be pursuant to the share repurchase program previously authorized by the Company’s board of directors on March 25, 2013. The timing and amount of common shares purchased will be in accordance with the Company’s capital plan and will depend on various factors, including the Company’s business plans, financial performance and market conditions. As previously disclosed, the Company aims to return, on average and over time, approximately 50 percent of the capital it generates to shareholders in the form of dividends and share buybacks. Given its strong capital ratios, relatively low levels of acquisitions, and a spend-centric business model that generates modest balance sheet growth, the Company has been able to return substantially more than the 50 percent target over the last two years. As required under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the Company has also published today a summary of the results of the Company-run stress tests performed under the Federal Reserve’s severely adverse scenario. These disclosures do not reflect the 2014 capital plan described above, but reflect certain assumptions and capital actions as required under the Federal Reserve’s rules. The results are available on the Company’s Investor Relations site at ir.americanexpress.com.

Sector Detector: Rejuvenated market seeks follow-through, but earnings loom large

Courtesy of Sabrient Systems and Gradient Analytics

As I suspected it might, the stock market bounced strongly last week. Weakness the prior week was due in part to traders exiting positions for vacation during the holiday-shortened week, protecting big capital gains, cashing out to pay taxes on capital gains, and “delta hedging” on put options. However, I’m not convinced that the pullback was sufficient to create the great buying opportunity -- but it was sure a tradable bounce.

Among the ten U.S. business sectors, the big winner last week was Energy, which was up about +4.5%. Also, Financial and Industrial were each up about +3%. Defensive sector Utilities still stands alone as the year-to-date leader, up about +11%, while Energy’s strong performance last week has it in second place, up about +5% YTD. Healthcare has been the big loser as i...

What To Do With The Market’s Bounce

Courtesy of David Grandey.

Last week, we said: 

“However, both indexes are at or near MAJOR support levels. That means that we are ‘in the zone’ for a bounce of some sort in the next couple of days.”   And a bounce is exactly what we got:      
But as you can see even with last week’s bounce, we are still locked in a downtrend.   As we look ahead to next week, should we break out of the downtrend to the upside, we’ll want to take advantage of buying stocks doing the same.  And should we remain in a downtrend, we want to short stocks that are also locked in downtrends.    As we’ve said before: Success in the market comes from trading stocks in tandem with the indexes.

Wild Ride For Chipotle

Shares in Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (Ticker: CMG) opened higher on Thursday morning, rising more than 6.0% to $589.00, after the restaurant operator reported better than expected first-quarter sales ahead of the opening bell. But, the stock began to falter just before lunchtime on concerns the burrito-maker will increase menu prices for the first time in three years. The price of Chipotle’s shares have since fallen into negative territory and currently trade down 3.5% on the session at $532.89 as of 1:50 p.m. ET.
