Caterpillar, Analog among few stocks rising on earnings surprises, Barron's says

Until recently, companies that beat quarterly earnings estimates could routinely expect shares to rise, but not anymore, Jack Hough writes in this week's edition of Barron's. Although there is a shortage of true upside surprisers, Hough says there are still some, with Align Technology (ALGN), Analog Services (ADI), Caterpillar (CAT), E-Trade Financial (ETFC) and Red Hat (RHT) among those who beat earnings and revenue estimates and enjoyed quick share price gains as a result, which should bode well for future performance.Reference Link

JPMorgan lays out iPhone content winners and losers into launch event
JPMorgan analyst Harlan Sur believes Apple's (AAPL) launch event today will be positive for Broadcom (AVGO) and Qorvo (QRVO) as well as Micron (MU) and Intel (INTC). The analyst sees content gains by Broadcom in wireless charging, touch controller, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth and GPS connectivity, and by Qorvo in low band power amplifier duplexers share and antenna tuning. Other companies with significant Apple exposure that would benefit from increased unit sales and/or modest content gains include Intel, Skyworks (SWKS), Knowles (KN), Micron, Cypress Semiconductor (CY), NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) and Texas Instruments (TXN), Sur tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees Analog Devices' (ADI) blended content at Apple declining as he believes the company will not be the touch controller for the OLED-version of the iPhone.

Align patent expirations to have minimal impact, says Piper Jaffray
