  • All Eyes on the Fed

    US Stock investors bid up prices yesterday ahead of the Federal Reserve's two-day policy meeting that ends today.  The Dow rallied to reclaim the 17,000 point level and all of the major equity indexes turned positive for the month.

    The Federal Reserve is widely expected to announce the end of the 2008-era bond buying program also affectionately known as Quantitative Easing.  The Fed is also expected to keep short-term interest rates at zero for a considerable period to come.

    Facebook reported earnings yesterday after the bell that easily beat expectations.  The company said 3rd quarter earnings rose 90% as the social network continued to show more evidence of its growing strength in mobile advertising.  Facebook's monthly active users grew to 1.35 billion and the percentage of advertising dollars that came from mobile devices increased to 66%.  The stock has sold off sharply though after the company also said they expect to see slower growth in the future and an increase in operating expenses.

    The Consumer Confidence Board reported that after slumping in September, consumer confidence rose sharply in October as people feel better about the job market and better business conditions.

    And shares of Twitter are 10% lower after the company reported earnings that were in-line with expectations, but the company reported declines in user engagement which will affect future earnings negatively.

  • Mariners Part Ways With Justin Smoak

    (Seattle, WA)  --  Justin Smoak is no longer a member of the Seattle Mariners.  The first baseman was claimed off waivers yesterday by the Toronto Blue Jays before playing the final year of his contract with the M's.  Smoak, a switch-hitter who showed promise as a rookie, has struggled on offense during his big-league career, batting only .202 this past season.

  • Carroll: Nothing To Reports Of Rift With Lynch

    (Renton, WA)  --  Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll says there's nothing to reports of a rift between star running back Marshawn Lynch and himself.  Various outlets have reported that Lynch and Carroll are on the outs, and that it's unlikely "Beast Mode" will be back with the team next season.  Carroll says he has nothing to say about it because there's "nothing to that" and he has "no idea where that came from."  The Hawks are making preparations to host the Oakland Raiders this Sunday.
