12:37 EDTCLWR, S, DISH, HLF, NUVA, GPN, APOL, HAOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after Alcoa (AA) unofficially kicked off the earnings season last night by matching analysts' earnings estimates and topping revenue expectations. Alcoa's report may be lending a sense of optimism that companies may be able to exceed the lowered expectations for the earnings season now getting underway. The market's bounce from its recent run of lower closes may not be long lived if lawmakers do not make progress, as highlighted again in a Washington Post report that said the U.S. may reach the current limit on the debt ceiling as soon as February 15, about two weeks earlier than previously expected... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the EIA's weekly petroleum status update showed that inventories of crude oil built up but by fewer barrels than expected, while gasoline and distillates built up by more than expected. In Europe, industrial output in Germany grew slightly in November but fell short of expectations, as the 0.2% adjusted monthly rise missed expectations for a 1.0% increase... COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Clearwire (CLWR) rose nearly 8% to $3.15 after the company got an unsolicited $3.30 per share buyout bid from Dish Network (DISH). The offer sets up a potential takeover battle with Sprint (S), which already owns a majority stake in Clearwire and has a deal in place to acquire the remaining interest... Another potential Wall Street showdown made headlines, related to two prominent hedge fund managers and their conflicting positions on Herbalife (HFL). Shares of Herbalife spiked higher and were up almost 5% near noon, after hedge fund Third Point, managed by Dan Loeb, disclosed an 8.24% passive stake. The holding puts Loeb in opposition with Bill Ackman of Pershing Square, who has a large and well publicized short position in the company... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was NuVasive (NUVA), which rose nearly 12% after reporting preliminary revenue that beat expectations and having its stock upgraded to Sector Perform at RBC Capital. Also higher were shares of Global Payments (GPN), up about 6% after JPMorgan upgraded the stock and RBC Capital raised its price target on shares following the company's report and increased guidance. Among the noteworthy losers was Apollo Group (APOL), which fell 9% following more than one downgrade of the stock after its Q1 report. Also lower were shares of Hawaiian Holdings (HA), which slid over 6% following a two notch downgrade to Underperform from Buy at Bank of America Merrill Lynch... INDICES: Near noon, the Dow was up 80.63, or 0.60%, to 13,409.48; the Nasdaq was up 14.66, or 0.47%, to 3,106.47; and the S&P 500 was up 4.86, or 0.33%, to 1,462.01.

14:51 EDTSApple announces iPhone 6, 6 Plus with Retina HD, Apple Pay
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 feature a unibody enclosure of anodized aluminum that conforms with the shaped glass of the display. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus include the Apple-designed A8 chip with second generation 64-bit desktop-class architecture for fast performance and power efficiency. Both models include the M8 motion coprocessor that gathers motion data from the accelerometer, gyroscope, compass and the new barometer. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus introduce Apple Pay, a new way to securely pay for physical goods and services in stores or apps. Users can pay securely in stores by holding the phone near the contactless reader while keeping a finger on Touch ID. The iSight camera gets better with a new sensor featuring Focus Pixels for faster autofocus and iPhone 6 Plus users will also benefit from optical image stabilization technology that compensates for hand shake in low light and works with iOS 8 to reduce subject motion. With faster LTE download speeds of up to 150 Mbps, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users can browse, download and stream content faster. 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.
