12:23 EDTQIHU, NICE, HRB, HGG, BIDU, VRNT, TNTEY, TQNT, CMVT, UPS, CRUS, AZK, QCOM, AAPLOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, with the Dow clinging to modest gains and Apple's (AAPL) decline weighing on the Nasdaq. The earnings calendar, like the economic calendar, was light today but earnings season will pick up in earnest this week with reports due from some of the biggest names in the financial industry, including JPMorgan (JPM), Citibank (C), Bank of America (BAC), Morgan Stanley (MS), Goldman Sachs (GS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Capital One (COF)... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major economic data was reported. After the close, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is scheduled to speak at the University of Michigan, which will be closely monitored by those on the Street... COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple are down about 3% but back above the psychologically and technically important $500 level near noon after a dip below that round number at the open. The weakness has been attributed to a Wall Street Journal report from over the weekend citing sources that claim Apple has cut its orders for iPhone 5 components due to weak demand. The report also dented several of Apple's component suppliers, including Cirrus Logic (CRUS), down 8%, TriQuint (TQNT), down 1%, and Qualcomm (QCOM), also down 1%... UPS shares rose over 1% after the company announced it will drop its pursuit of TNT Express (TNTEY) after concluding their proposed merger would not be allowed in the EU. Following the announcement, UPS shares were upgraded to Buy at Deutsche Bank and to Market Perform at Avondale... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Aurizon Mines (AZK), which rose 33% after Alamos Gold launched an offer to buy the miner for C$780M. Also higher were shares of Comverse Technology (CMVT), Verint Systems (VRNT) and Nice Systems (NICE) which all rose about 7% following a report from Globes that said Verint and Nice are in tie-up talks. Verint Systems signed a merger agreement with Comverse in August of last year. Among the noteworthy losers were hhgregg (HGG), down nearly 9% after cutting its yearly earnings view, and Qihoo 360 (QIHU), down over 5% after reports that Baidu (BIDU) is making a strategic investment in one of its key competitors. Also lower were shares of H&R Block, which slid 3.7% following a downgrade to Underweight at Morgan Stanley... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 4.49, or 0.03%, to 13,492.92; the Nasdaq was down 14.84, or 0.47%, to 3,110.79; and the S&P 500 was down 3.72, or 0.25%, to 1,468.33.

08:22 EDTAAPLApple iPhone demand holding up better than expected, says Pacific Crest
Pacific Crest says its initial estimates of iPhone component orders for the September quarter indicate that iPhone demand should hold up better than it had previously expected. The firm adds that iPhone demand appears to have remained solid in recent months, which should enable Apple's Q3 EPS to beat expectations. Pacific Crest adds that its more upbeat view on the iPhone is "somewhat offset" by its less positive outlook on Apple Watch sales. Nevertheless the firm thinks that the iPhone's improved outlook reduces the stock's downside risk. However, it keeps a Sector Weight rating on the shares.
07:17 EDTAAPLUber previously had talks with Apple, Starbucks on logistics tie-up, WSJ says
Uber was reportedly in talks “in recent months” with Apple (AAPL) and Starbucks (SBUX) to create partnerships to help build its same-day product delivery program, but both companies instead went with startup courier service Postmates, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing people familiar with the matter. Uber launched its logistics service a year ago with plans to sign up with “dozens” of retailers, yet has announced partnerships with only six, the report says. Eat24, owned by Yelp (YELP), and GrubHub (GRUB) also held discussions with Uber but haven't reached any agreements, the report says. Reference Link
