16:11 EDTFIATYChrysler Group voluntarily recalling 230,760 SUVs to install new relay circuit
Chrysler Group is voluntarily recalling an estimated 230,760 SUVs to install new a relay circuit that improves fuel-pump relay durability. A routine internal data review discovered a pattern of repairs involving fuel-pump relays in certain 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs. Further investigation revealed some relays are susceptible to deformation, which may affect fuel-pump function. Such a condition may prevent a vehicle from starting or lead to engine stall. Chrysler Group is unaware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition. The fuel-pump relay is located inside the Totally Integrated Power Module, which also helps manage other vehicle functions. None of these other functions, including airbag deployment, is affected by the fuel-pump relay. The recall covers an estimated 188,723 vehicles in the U.S.; 15,898 in Canada; 7,126 in Mexico and 19,013 outside the NAFTA region. Chrysler Group will advise affected customers when they may schedule service, which will be performed at no cost.

A U.S. Judge has ordered General Motors to turn over internal files and documents regarding its ignition-switch flaw and how it handled the defect to plaintiff attorneys, The Wall Street Journal says. The attorneys are representing plaintiffs who have sued the auto manufacturer alleging economic loss, personal injury, and deaths related to the company's recall of older cars with the ignition-switch defect. While General Motors is protected from liabilities that occurred before its bankruptcy in 2009, the recent ruling paves the way for plaintiff attorneys to obtain records they could use in cases before and after General Motor's bankruptcy petition, The Wall Street Journal added.

06:55 EDTAAPLApple launches new iOS 8 phones with 'kill switch'
Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon revealed that new iPhones sold with iOS 8 will include Apple’s theft deterrent system, Activation Lock, as a default setting. This marks the first time in the history of the smartphone industry that theft deterrent technology is available by default on new products. In addition to being standard on the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, newly-sold iPhones will also prompt users to upgrade to iOS 8. Additionally, the new operating system can also be installed on most previous models of iPhones. As co-chairs of the Secure Our Smartphone, or S.O.S. Initiative, Attorney General Schneiderman and District Attorney Gascon led the effort to call on the wireless industry to address the global rise in smartphone thefts. The ultimate goal of SOS is for every mobile device to have a “kill switch” on by default. A default solution is imperative because it ensures that the device will be worthless to thieves.

In that ruling, The USCAFC affirmed the jury's finding that all 4 of VirnetX's patents are valid, confirmed the jury's finding of infringement of VPN on Demand under many of the asserted claims of the '135 and '151 patents, and confirmed the district's court's decision to allow evidence concerning the VirnetX's licenses and royalty rates in connection with the determination of damages. In its order, the USCAFC also vacated the jury's damages award and the district court's claim construction with respect to parts of the '504 and '211 patents and remanded the damages award and determination of infringement with respect to FaceTime, for further proceedings consistent with its opinion. "While we are disappointed that the Federal Circuit has vacated portions of the judgment for further proceedings, we are bolstered by the fact that the patents were again found valid and that it was confirmed that Apple's VPN on Demand functionality infringes the VirnetX patents," said Kendall Larsen, VirnetX CEO and president.

Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday, with some attributing the move to noted Fed watcher Jon Hilsenrath of The Wall Street Journal giving the opinion that he does not believe the central bank will drop the language that interest rates will "remain low for an extended period of time" when it issues its latest policy statement tomorrow. The averages began the session in negative territory and appeared to be heading for another listless day of trading. The market drifted lower during the opening hour but the Dow and S&P crossed into positive ground and the Nasdaq eventually followed. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Producer Price Index was unchanged in August, as expected. The core reading, which excludes food and energy, increased 0.1%, also matching expectations. Of note, the Fed's FOMC rate setting group kicked off its two-day policy meeting. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple (AAPL) slid over 1% after Chinese-language 21st Century Business Herald reportedly said the company might not get the necessary approval to launch its new iPhone 6 models throughout China until next year after failing to come to an agreement with a regulator in the nation. Shares of China Mobile (CHL), which is buy far the largest phone carrier in China, slipped 2% after the report... Glimcher Realty Trust (GRT) surged 29% after it agreed to sell itself to fellow REIT Washington Prime Group (WPG) for $14.20 per share. Washington has agreed to buy Glimcher for about $4.3B in a cash and stock deal. Glimcher shareholders will receive $10.40 in cash and 0.1989 of a share of Washington stock upon the closing of the transaction, the companies stated. As part of the deal, Simon Property Group (SPG), which completed its separation of Washington Prime Group this May, agreed to buy two shopping malls owned by Glimcher for $1.09B in cash. Shares of fellow mall owning REITs CBL & Associates (CBL), Rouse Properties (RSE) and Pennsylvania REIT (PEI) rose following the deal announcement. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Bill Barrett (BBG), which rose 12% after selling natural gas, oil and natural gas liquids assets in the Piceance Basin in Colorado for $525M to Vanguard Natural (VNR). Vanguard Natural also gained 1% following the deal announcement. Among the noteworthy losers was VirnetX (VHC), which plunged nearly 50% after an appeals court vacated a jury’s damages award in its patent case with Apple. Also lower were shares of Atlantic Power (AT), which dropped 32% after announcing that it concluded a sale or merger of the company is not in the best interests of the company or its stakeholders and the company cut its annual dividend. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 88.18, or 0.52%, to 17,119.32, the Nasdaq was up 16.11, or 0.36%, to 4,535.01, and the S&P 500 was up 11.94, or 0.6%, to 1,996.07.

17:09 EDTTSLA, AAPLOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed to begin the week, as the Dow managed to register mild gains but the Nasdaq was weighed down by slides in a number of so-called "momentum stocks" like Tesla (TSLA). Investors may remain cautious in the next two sessions ahead of the Fed's much anticipated rate decision and accompanying statement, which is due Wednesday. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., New York Fed's Empire state survey for September rose to a five-year high of 27.54. Industrial production unexpectedly dipped 0.1% in August from a downwardly revised 0.2% July gain, missing the forecast for a rise of 0.3%. Capacity utilization dropped to 78.8% last month from 79.1% previously. In China, industrial output increased 6.9% in August versus the same period a year earlier, which was its weakest advance, excluding months that fell during New Year holidays, since December 2008. Chinese retail sales growth for August came in at 11.9%, missing the consensus estimate. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple (AAPL) edged down 3c, or 0.03%, to $101.63 despite the company's announcement that a record 4M iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus pre-orders were placed in the first 24 hours that ordering was available. Demand for the new phones exceeds the initial pre-order supply, the company added, stating that delivery of "many" iPhone pre-orders have been pushed out to October... Microsoft (MSFT) slid 45c, or 0.97%, to $46.24 after the company confirmed an agreement to acquire Mojang, the developer for the "Minecraft" video game franchise, for $2.5B... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Avanir Pharmaceuticals (AVNR), which surged $5.75, or 85.31%, to $12.49 and was upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies after the company announced results from its phase II clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of its treatment of agitation in patients with Alzheimer's disease. Also higher was SABMiller (SBMRY), which jumped $4.72, or 8.5%, to $60.26 after the Wall Street Journal said that ABInBev (BUD) was looking to obtain financing for an acquisition of the U.K.-based brewer and Heineken (HEINY) confirmed that it rebuffed SABMiller's approach regarding a potential transaction. The news of potential consolidation in the space also drove other beer makers highers, with Molson Coors (TAP) rising $4.20, or 5.85%, to $76.00 and Boston Beer (SAM) gaining 71c, or 0.33%, to $218.47. Among the noteworthy losers was Tesla (TSLA), which dropped $25.34, or 9.08%, to $253.86 after Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jones wrote that he agrees with the assertion of Tesla's CEO Elon Musk that the company's stock may have gotten ahead of itself. Also lower were shares of NPS Pharmaceuticals (NPSP), which fell $5.42, or 16.56%, to $27.28 after Oppennheimer and Jefferies stated that approval of its Natpara drug for hypoparathyroidism could be delayed after concerns were raised during an FDA panel meeting, even though the advisors were in favor of approving the drug. INDEXES: The Dow rose 43.63, or 0.26%, to 17,031.14, the Nasdaq dropped 48.70, or 1.07%, to 4,518.90, and the S&P 500 declined 1.41, or 0.07%, to 1,984.13.

A bounce off the 50-day would be bullish, while a breakdown below would suggest a trend reversal to bearish. Resistance is at $256.76.

Toyota is recalling certain model year 2008-2014 FJ Cruiser and Tacoma vehicles equipped with accessory wheels and tires installed by Toyota or dealers prior to the vehicle's first sale. The affected vehicles may list incorrect spare tire size and/or cold tire inflation information on the tire placard. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 110, "Tire Selection and Rims for Passenger Cars." If the spare tire is inflated to the incorrect pressure provided on the placard, tire failure may occur while it is being driven on, increasing the risk of a crash. For the involved vehicles, overlay stickers to correct the tire placard will either be mailed to owners or provided to dealers for placement over the incorrect information on the placard. The recall is expected to begin in September. Reference Link

14:01 EDTTMMobileye sinks after report says Toyota likely to use competitor
Shares of Mobileye (MBLY) are falling after the Nikkei newspaper reported today that Toshiba (TOSBF) is going to make many system chips for automatic driver-assist systems, or ADAS. Toyota (TM) will likely incorporate the chips into vehicles it will release in fiscal year 2015, the newspaper added. Mobileye designs software and chips for camera-based advanced ADAS. WHAT'S NEW: Toshiba plans to begin mass producing the ADAS chips - which will analyze images to help cars respond correctly to traffic lights and avoid dangers on the road - in 2015, Nikkei reported. The chips will be placed in safety systems by another company, Denso, before they are shipped to Toyota, Nikkei noted. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On September 9, Citigroup raised its price target on Mobileye to $62 from $48, as the firm was more confident about the company's chances of landing Toyota as a client after attending the first day of the ITS World Congress. Although Toyota is one of the few large auto makers not utilizing Mobileye's technology, the Japanese giant does recognize Mobileye's distinct technological advantages and expects to obtain ADAS components from more suppliers over the medium term, according to the firm, which kept a Buy rating on Mobileye. However, Deutsche Bank expressed some caution on the stock earlier this week when it downgraded the shares on valuation concerns. But the firm said that it continued to be upbeat about the company's long-term prospects. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Mobileye slumped $2, or 4%, to $52. The shares debuted on August 12 at about $32.

13:03 EDTAAPLOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday, with the Nasdaq comfortably the leader among the major averages. The market opened relatively quietly as investors digested the bevy of research reports surrounding apple (AAPL) and the companies effected by its new products and services announced yesterday. The averages crossed into negative ground early in trading, made it back to positive territory just before the lunch hour, and now are all in the black. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., wholesale inventories rose 0.1% in July, which was below expectations for an increase of 0.5%. Wholesale sales rose 0.7%, which was above the 0.6% increase that was forecast. COMPANY NEWS: The strength in the Nasdaq was largely attributable to Apple, which rose about 2.5% the day after unveiling two new, larger iPhone 6 models, the Apple Watch and a new payment system, named Apple Pay... Dollar General (DG) "went hostile" in its pursuit of peer Family Dollar (FDO), commencing a tender offer to acquire all of the company's outstanding shares for $80.00 per share in cash. Family Dollar confirmed the unsolicited offer, noting that the terms are the same as those in the previously rejected proposal made by Dollar General on September 2. Family Dollar said its board will review and consider Dollar General’s tender offer, but added that the board has not changed its recommendation in support of the company's merger with Dollar Tree (DLTR). MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was NPS Pharmaceuticals (NPSP), which rose 21% after several analysts said FDA briefing documents for an advisory panel meeting on its Natpara drug were more favorable than expected. Also higher was clothing and accessories retailer Land's End (LE), which gained nearly 17% after the company's second quarter results beat the estimate of the only analyst that covers it. Among the noteworthy losers was eBay (EBAY), which fell for a second straight day after Apple announced its new mobile payment system, Apple Pay, that could come in direct competition with eBay's PayPal service. Shares of PayPal's parent were downgraded to Neutral this morning at Piper Jaffray and fell 3% near noon. Also lower following yesterday's presentation by Apple was partner GT Advanced (GTAT), which was downgraded at Goldman, Piper Jaffray and Dougherty and dropped more than 14% after it was revealed that sapphire will be used in the display cover of Apple Watch but not the iPhone 6. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 16.02, or 0.09%, to 17,029.89, the Nasdaq was up 21.10, or 0.46%, to 4,573.38, and the S&P 500 was up 2.62, or 0.13%, to 1,991.06.

11:59 EDTAAPLeBay downgraded, continues slide after Apple Pay announced
Shares of e-commerce company eBay (EBAY) are falling for a second straight day after Apple (AAPL) announced its new mobile payment system, Apple Pay, at its event yesterday. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Apple unveiled and confirmed its widely anticipated mobile payment system, dubbed Apple Pay, at its event yesterday. The service, which works with both of Apple's latest iPhone 6s and its Apple Watch, could come in direct competition with eBay's PayPal. Apple is collaborating with American Express (AXP), MasterCard (MA) and Visa (V) on the platform, as well as banks including Bank of America (BAC), Capital One Bank (COF), Chase (JPM), Citi (C) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Some retailers that will support Apple Pay include Bloomingdale's, Disney (DIS), Macy’s (M), McDonald’s (MCD), Panera (PNRA), Staples (SPLS), Subway, Walgreens (WAG) and Whole Foods Market (WFM). ANALYST REACTION: Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster downgraded eBay to Neutral from Overweight following the details regarding Apple Pay. He believes that Apple's new payment system is likely to disturb the mobile payments market and is certain that the "unknown competitive threat" of Apple Pay will further burden eBay's multiple throughout the next six months. Munster said that he expected Apple to announce an initiative like this, so news of Apple Pay does not surprise him. He noted, however, that he did not expect Visa, MasterCard and American Express to collaborate with the platform along with partners such as Macy's and McDonald's. Munster anticipates investors in the near term to be more "conservative" in regards to the PayPal multiple. The analyst lowered his price target for eBay to $55 from $63. Pacific Crest analyst Josh Beck feels that Apple Pay could negatively impact sentiment towards eBay's longer-term opportunity. The tech giant is gaining more traction in the e-commerce space than Beck had initially thought, which could ultimately mean an increased rivalry with eBay's PayPal. The analyst keeps a Sector Perform rating on eBay. Bernstein analyst Carlos Kirjner said that eBay's weakness on Apple's latest news is a buying opportunity for investors. He said that the tech giant's new payment platform is targeting offline payments, noting that offline payments are not imbedded in analyst's estimates for eBay's PayPal. He said that it would take at least a few years for Apple Pay to reach a 12% market share of online payments. He does not see this news as an obstacle for PayPal and Kirjner keeps a $62 price target and Outperform rating on eBay. PRICE ACTION: Near noon, eBay fell $1.64, or 3%, to $51.09, while Apple rose $1.64, or 1.7% to $99.63.

10:19 EDTAAPLOn Track, USA Technologies rise after Apple Pay seen as positive
Shares of On Track Innovations (OTIV) and USA Technologies (USAT) are moving higher after research firm Northland Capital predicted that both companies would benefit from the launch of Apple's (AAPL) mobile payment system which is based on NFC technology. On Track Innovations sells contactless/NFC readers, while USA Technologies provides products that facilitate electronic payment transactions. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors today, Northland Capital analyst Michael Latimore wrote that his discussions with vending operators indicate that Apple Pay will likely provide a major impetus to upgrade payment terminals, benefiting On Track Innovations and USA Technologies. On Track Innovations has gained share in the contactless/NFC reader market and now sells these readers to most of the vending operators in the U.S., Latimore stated. Accelerated adoption of contactless/NFC technology will help increase the number of contactless/NFC readers that are sold, the analyst believes. Meanwhile, US Technologies' cloud services revenue could accelerate as more vending operators deploy NFC readers, Latimore added. The analyst kept Outperform ratings on both stocks. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, On Track Innovations soared 42% to $4.70, while USA Technologies advanced 7% to $2.20. VeriFone (PAY), which sells point of sale electronic payment devices, gained 4% to $36.

12:10 EDTAAPLOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday after opening in the red and trading in a narrow range throughout the morning. The domestic economic calendar only had two reports of consequence, and neither was particularly market moving. All eyes are on Cupertino, California, where Apple (AAPL) will shortly begin its much-anticipated product launch event. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the NFIB small business optimism survey for August came in at 96.1, which was above the expected 96.0 reading. The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, or JOLTS report, showed job openings slipped 2K to about 4.67M in July. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple were up 1% near noon ahead of the tech giant's latest product launch event, which is scheduled to begin at 1 pm ET. Expectations are for the company to introduce the iPhone 6, which has widely been speculated to be bigger than past members of the line-up and may come in 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch sizes. The company is also expected to unveil a wearable device, likely a smartwatch, and a mobile payment system integrated with both... Shares of fast food giant McDonald’s (MCD) slid 1% after reporting its comparable sales were down 3.7% worldwide in August and that its China supplier issue will negatively impact its Q3 EPS by 15c-20c. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Annies (BNNY), which surged 38% after prepared foods giant General Mills (GIS) last night said that it had agreed to buy the mac and cheese maker for $820M, or $46 per share in cash. Shares of a number of other natural food makers climbed after the deal, as WhiteWave (WWAV) rose nearly 3% and Boulder Brands (BDBD) jumped over 8%. Following the deal announcement, shares of General Mills slipped about 0.5%. Among the noteworthy losers was Leidos (LDOS), which dropped 15% after the company reported lower than expected second quarter earnings and cuts its EPS view for the fiscal year. Also lower was MaxLinear (MXL), which fell 15% after the company said several of its cable and satellite customers have requested push-outs of shipments, resulting in the company lowering its Q3 revenue outlook and Needham downgrading the stock to Buy from Strong Buy. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 69.02, or 0.4%, to 17,042.40, the Nasdaq was down 14.93, or 0.33%, to 4,577.35, and the S&P 500 was down 6.74, or 0.34%, to 1,994.80.

13:59 EDTAAPLApple tests support ahead of product announcement
The shares are down less than a percent to $98.20 ahead of Tuesday's expected product announcements. At that price the shares are below the 30-week moving average, but above the 50-week moving average at $96.92. So far there appears little in the way of significant technical damage in spite of recent concerns from the sell-side community. A breakdown tomorrow below the 50-day moving average following the announcements would be cause for greater concern. A move below $95 would break the intermediate-term uptrend on a technical basis. Conversely a move back above the $101 area, near the 10-day moving average, would signal an all-clear on a technical basis for higher prices. The life high for the shares is at $103.74.
