10:32 EDTAZNPfizer CEO says company still open to inversion deal, FT says
Pfizer (PFE) CEO Ian Read said U.S. rhetoric against tax inversions has been "political theater" ahead of midterm elections and made clear that his company is still open to a potential tax-saving acquisition, according to Financial Times, which added Read's comment about not being “held hostage” over price would likely be read as a signal the company might look elsewhere after being rebuffed by AstraZeneca (AZN). The Fly notes that Bloomberg previously reported, citing people familiar with the matter, that Pfizer is looking at targets other than AstraZeneca, including Actavis (ACT). Shares of Actavis trading in New York are up 2% this morning. Reference Link

Apple announced iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, featuring two new models with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch Retina HD displays.

The new iPhones also support voice calls over LTE, or VoLTE, as well as Wi-Fi calling. iPhone 6 comes in gold, silver or space gray, and will be available in the U.S. for a suggested retail price of $199 for the 16GB model, $299 for the 64GB model and 128GB model for $399 with a two-year contract. iPhone 6 Plus comes in gold, silver or space gray, and will be available in the US for a suggested retail price of $299 for the 16GB model, $399 for the 64GB model and $499 for the new 128GB model with a two-year contract.
