17:14 EDTVRX, MSFT, SLXP, AAPL, AGNOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session in positive territory and remained there throughout the entire session. The move today marks the fourth higher close in the past five sessions and continues to keep August on track for the best monthly performance since February. The volume was light and the market drifted as there was little in the way of a catalyst since the market opened. Prior to the open however, the market received good news with housing starts and building permits data that was better than expected and the consumer prices report that was in-line with expectations. Investors will be a little more careful tomorrow as the Fed is scheduled to release its minutes from last month’s FOMC meeting. ECONOMIC EVENTS: Housing starts for July rose to an annualized pace of 1.093M units, up from 0.945M units in June, and beating expectations for 0.963M units... The Consumer Price Index increased 0.1% overall, matching expectations. Less food and energy, the CPI was up 0.1%, which was also in-line with the consensus forecast. COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL) closed above $100 for the first time since the stock's seven-for-one split in June... Microsoft (MSFT) announced that former CEO Steve Ballmer has stepped down from the company's board, effective immediately. Microsoft shares traded up more than 1% today. MAJOR MOVERS: Allergan (AGN) approached Salix (SLXP) about a takeover, according to a Wall Street Journal report. Allergan is currently fighting a hostile takeover attempt by Valeant (VRX). Allergan traded up 4% today, Salix traded up 15.5%, and Valeant traded up 3.6%. INDEXES: The Dow was up 80.85, or 0.48%, to 16,919.59; the Nasdaq was up 19.20, or 0.43%, to 4,527.51; and the S&P 500 was up 9.86, or 0.5%, to 1,981.60.

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said in a note to investors yesterday that the potential for a car gives investors something to look at as "the next big thing" for Apple. Munster believes the Wall Street Journal's report that Apple is building an electric car will help support the stock over the next six months. He believes it is unlikely that the company launches anything in the next five years, however. Munster reiterated an Overweight rating on Apple with a $160 price target. The stock closed Friday up 62c to $127.08.
