MACRO NEWS: Hurricane Sandy killed at least 98 people; left millions without electricity in the New York area; flooded Lower Manhattan, the New Jersey Shore, and other areas; knocked out much of the region's mass transportation infrastructure for several days; forced stock exchanges to close on Monday and Tuesday; and caused a gasoline shortage. Hurricane Sandy will probably cost insurance companies a total of $10B-$20B, research firm Equecat said... The economy created 171,000 net new non-farm jobs last month, versus the consensus estimate of 125,000. Meanwhile, China reported earlier in the week that its Purchasing Managers' Index rose to 50.2 in October from 49.8 in September... COMPANY NEWS: Starbucks (SBUX), Priceline.com (PCLN) and TripAdvisor (TRIP) all reported higher than expected third quarter profits... Apple's (AAPL) iPad mini went on sale, but in Asia a smaller number of people appeared to be waiting in line to purchase the device than during previous Apple product launches, Reuters reported... Billionaire investor Carl Icahn announced that he had acquired a 9.9% stake in Netflix (NFLX) and said the company was undervalued. Netflix may become a takeover target for a giant tech company, Icahn added.
