- US equity indices have seen modest gains this morning from the premarket through mid morning, breaking two consecutive sessions of lower open/higher close sessions. A handful of good US economic data is sending equities higher, helping investors look past the poor quarterly reports from Citi and BoA. The DJIA, S&P500 and Nasdaq are all up about 0.4% as of writing. Note that a big round of China December data is on tap later today.

- The most recent US economic data has been very good. Yesterday's beige book report was decent and reported that the economy expanded modestly in the final month of 2012. The initial jobless claims fell to levels last seen in January of 2008. The December housing starts were much better than expected, with huge gains seen in multi-family construction.

- USD/JPY reversed course overnight and the yen has given up most of its recent gains against the dollar as of writing. Japanese officials were out in full force overnight to reverse their recent verbal missteps. USD/JPY is back at 29-month highs above 89.55 and EUR/JPY is holding just below the 120 handle. Both of these areas present psychological resistance and should provide headwinds in further yen weakening. EUR/USD stayed above 1.3350 aided by the good Spanish auction and the recent IMF approval of funds for Greece.

- Citigroup had a tough Q4. Net income rose slightly y/y, however EPS was well below expectations after taking into account huge legal costs and a corporate restructuring charges. In addition, negative DVA thanks to improving credit spreads took its toll as well. Shares of C are down 2.5%.

- Bank of America is in the red along with Citi, with shares of BAC down 3.0%. BoA was weighed down by the recently announced $5B in MBS repurchase charges. However, there were a few bright spots in the report, with mortgage loan volumes up 42% y/y and more progress seen in cutting non-performing loans.

- The FAA and the Japanese and European air safety regulators have grounded Boeing's 787 Dreamliner fleet. In addition, Qatar Airways has also grounded its planes until further notice. Operators will have to prove that the new plane's battery systems are safe before the planes fly again. Shares of BA gave up a little more ground in the premarket but are basically flat on the session as of mid morning.

- Investors like CBS's initiative to shake up its outdoor advertising segment. The US side of the business will be converted into a REIT while the Europe and Asia units will be spun off. Shares of CBS are up more than 10%.

- Multi-level marketing firms Nu Skin and Herbalife both offered preliminary looks at their Q4. NUS's guidance was much better than expected, while Herbalife's was less impressive. NUS is up 10% while HLF is flat on the session.

- Williams-Sonoma earned itself multiple analyst downgrades after reaffirming its FY12 outlook yesterday afternoon. Analysts were hoping for more, and shares of WSM are down more than 5%.

- Shares of NLS are up more than 14% after offering good preliminary Q4 guidance.
