Apple (AAPL) has reached deals with American Express (AXP), JPMorgan (JPM), Citigroup (C), Capital One (COF), and Bank of America (BAC) to lower card transaction fees for its soon to be launched payments venture, said Bank Innovations, citing an earlier report from Tom Noyes and confirmation by its own sources. Apple has both convinced them to consider its transactions as “card present,” which carries a lower discount rate, and has also managed to bump down the actual “card present” rate by 15 to 25 basis points, according to people with knowledge of the matter, the report noted.

14:05 EDTCIENCiena weakness may create attractive entry point, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo believes that Ciena (CIEN) reported solid Q3 results, and the firm was encouraged by the news that the company was named as an AT&T (T) domain 2.0 supplier. However, the firm notes that Ciena's Q4 revenue guidance was lower than expected, partly due to the deal. Nonetheless the firm expects the factors that caused the guidance miss to be transitory, and it is upbeat about the company's outlook for FY15. Wells keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.
12:34 EDTCIENOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in positive territory after the ECB lowered its benchmark interest rate and took additional measures in an attempt to stimulate the region’s economy. The averages had some early momentum, but found a level about an hour into trading around which they have since traded in a narrow range. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., payroll provider ADP estimated private sector employment increased by 204K jobs in August, which was below the consensus forecast for 215K private sector jobs to have been added. Initial jobless claims rose 4K to 302K in the week ended August 30, which was close to the 300K estimate. The trade deficit narrowed slightly to $40.5B in July, beating expectations for a deficit of $42.5B. Second quarter nonfarm productivity growth was revised lower to 2.3% versus the 2.5% pace reported initially. Unit labor costs were revised down to a decrease of 0.1% from a rise of 0.6% estimated previously. Markit's services PMI for August came in at 59.5, versus a consensus forecast of 58.5. ISM's non-manufacturing PMI for August had a reading of 59.6, easily topping the 57.7 consensus estimate. In Europe, the European Central Bank unexpectedly cut the rate at which it issues short-term loans to banks to 0.05% from 0.15% and lowered its growth forecasts for 2014 and 2015. The ECB also announced plans to buy asset-backed securities, which the central bank's president Mario Draghi said will have a “sizable” impact on its balance sheet without providing further details on the size of the planned purchases. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of oil major BP (BP) trading in New York fell about 6% after a federal judge ruled that the company acted with "gross negligence" in causing the Gulf of Mexico spill in 2010 that was the biggest offshore oil spill in U.S. history. U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier, who held a trial without a jury over who was at fault, also found Transocean (RIG) and Halliburton (HAL) "negligent," but rested much more of the blame on BP, with 67% of the liability assigned to BP, 30% to Transocean and 3% to Halliburton. Afterward, BP said it "strongly disagrees" with the decision and will immediately appeal. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were Mattress Firm (MFRM), which rose 12%, and Methode Electronics (MEI), which gained 16%. Also higher was Bolt Technology (BOLT), which surged 36% after the company agreed to be acquired by Teledyne Technologies (TDY) for $22.00 per share in cash. Shares of Teledyne advanced nearly 2% following last night's deal announcement. Among the noteworthy losers was Matrix Service (MTRX), which dropped 21% after its earnings for the just completed quarter and its profit forecast for its new fiscal year fell short of analysts' expectations. Also lower following their earnings reports were Ciena (CIEN), which fell over 7%, and Shoe Carnival (SCVL), which dropped more than 10%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 43.83, or 0.26%, to 17,122.11, the Nasdaq was up 15.15, or 0.33%, to 4,587.71, and the S&P 500 was up 5.23, or 0.26%, to 2,005.95.

06:40 EDTCAgencies finalize liquidity rule for large banks
The Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency finalized a rule yesterday that they said would strengthen the liquidity positions of large financial institutions. The rule will for the first time create a standardized minimum liquidity requirement for large and internationally active banking organizations., according to the agencies. Each institution will be required to hold high quality, liquid assets, or HQLA, such as central bank reserves and government and corporate debt that can be converted easily and quickly into cash in an amount equal to or greater than its projected cash outflows minus its projected cash inflows during a 30-day stress period, the agencies explained. The ratio of the firm’s liquid assets to its projected net cash outflow is its “liquidity coverage ratio,” or LCR, they said. The LCR will apply to all banking organizations with $250B or more in total consolidated assets or $10B or more in on-balance sheet foreign exposure and to these banking organizations’ subsidiary depository institutions that have assets of $10B or more, the agencies reported. The rule also will apply a less stringent, modified LCR to bank holding companies and savings and loan holding companies that do not meet these thresholds, but have $50B or more in total assets. Bank holding companies and savings and loan holding companies with substantial insurance or commercial operations are not covered by the final rule. The final rule is largely identical to the proposed rule, with a few key adjustments in response to comments from the public, the agencies stated. Those adjustments include changes to the range of corporate debt and equity securities included in HQLA, a phasing-in of daily calculation requirements, a revised approach to address maturity mismatch during a 30-day period, and changes in the stress period, calculation frequency, and implementation timeline for the bank holding companies and savings and loan companies subject to the modified LCR. Publicly traded companies in the space include Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC).
