09:29 EDTAAPLApple updates privacy site to explain how personal information is handled
Apple updated the privacy section of its website, and CEO Tim Cook says this is aimed at explaining how the company handles each user's personal information, "what we do and don't collect." In an introduction letter for the new site expansion, Cook states "Security and privacy are fundamental to the design of all our hardware, software, and services, including iCloud and new services like Apple Pay. And we continue to make improvements. Two-step verification, which we encourage all our customers to use, in addition to protecting your Apple ID account information, now also protects all of the data you store and keep up to date with iCloud. We believe in telling you up front exactly what's going to happen to your personal information and asking for your permission before you share it with us. And if you change your mind later, we make it easy to stop sharing with us. Every Apple product is designed around those principles. When we do ask to use your data, it's to provide you with a better user experience. We're publishing this website to explain how we handle your personal information, what we do and don't collect, and why. We're going to make sure you get updates here about privacy at Apple at least once a year and whenever there are significant changes to our policies." Reference Link

16:19 EDTAAPLOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Monday
Stocks on Wall Street were sharply lower as investors continue to worry about the health of China's economy and continue to flee the biotech sector. The iShares NASDAQ Biotechnology Index (IBB) was down 6.33% today and is down about 18.5% since September 21, when Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton pledged to take action against the high prices of specialty drugs. Adding to the tentative mood among investors was noted investor Carl Icahn's preview for a presentation that will be made available on his site tomorrow, entitled "Danger Ahead." The preview includes several cautious comments that the billionaire has publicly made recently regarding his concerns about the high-yield bond market and the stock market. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., personal income grew 0.3% in August, versus expectations for it to rise 0.4%. Personal spending rose 0.4% last month, versus expectations for growth of 0.3%. The pending home sales index fell 1.4% in August, missing expectations for it to have risen 0.4%. The Dallas Fed manufacturing outlook survey for September had a reading of -9.5, versus expectations for a reading of -10.0. In China, industrial profits plunged 8.8% in August, adding to the recent string of weak data from the Asian giant. COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL) reported that it set a record by selling more than 13M new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models in the first three days after launch of the devices. However, shares of the tech giant slid about 2% to $112.44 following the announcement... Alcoa (AA) shares advanced 52c, or 5.73%, to $9.59 after the company announced that its board has approved a plan to separate into two independent, publicly-traded companies - an Upstream company that will operate under the Alcoa name and a new "Value-Add company" that will provide high-performance, multi-material products whose name will be announced at a later date... Biotech stocks continued recent declines, with Valeant (VRX) dropping 16.6% after a group of Democratic congressmen urged additional scrutiny of the company's "price hike" business model, while Epizyme (EPZM) and NewLink (NLNK) fell a respective 27% and 21% after presenting data at the 2015 European Cancer Congress... Shares of both Energy Transfer Equity (ETE) and Williams (WMB) fell after they announced a combination deal valued at approximately $37.7B, including the assumption of debt and other liabilities. Under the terms of their deal, an affiliate of ETE will acquire Williams at an implied current price of $43.50 per Williams share, the companies said. In late June, Energy Transfer Equity made a proposal to merge with Williams in an all-equity transaction valued at that time at $53.1B, including the assumption of debt and other liabilities. Under that prior merger proposal, ETE would have acquired all of the outstanding common stock of Williams at an implied price of $64 per Williams share, which represented a 32.4% premium to Williams' common share closing price as of June 19. Energy Transfer Equity shares closed down $2.95, or 12.69%, to $20.29 after announcing today's revised deal, while Williams dropped $5.03, or 12.09%, to close at $36.57.

Also higher was Media General (MEG), which gained $2.49, or 22.3%, to $13.64 after Nexstar (NXST) proposed a cash-and-stock deal to acquire the company for $14.50 per share, which Media General said it would "carefully review." Additionally, Sanchez Energy (SN) rose 4.5% to $5.57 after agreeing to sell certain Eagle Ford Shale midstream assets to Sanchez Production Partners (SPP) for $345M. Among the noteworthy losers was Huntsman (HUN), which plunged $3.99, or 28.7%, to $9.92 after warning that headwinds would impact its third quarter earnings. Also lower were shares of Depomed (DEPO) and Horizon Pharma (HZNP), falling a respective 22% and 21%, after Depomed continued its criticism of Horizon's hostile takeover bid for the company.
