Shares of Apple lost $18.55, or 3.57%, to $501.75, but closed above the psychologically and technically important $500 level after shares dipped below that level intraday. The slide followed a Wall Street Journal report, citing sources, that said Apple has cut its orders for iPhone 5 components due to weak demand... UPS shares gained $1.32, or 1.69%, to $79.24 after the company announced it will drop its pursuit of TNT Express (TNTEY), citing EU regulatory hurdles. Following the announcement, UPS shares were upgraded to Buy at Deutsche Bank and to Market Perform at Avondale... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Xyratex (XRTX), up 70c, or 8.36%, to $9.07 after hedge fund Baker Street Capital, which owns approximately 23% of the company's outstanding shares, sent a letter to the Xyratex board urging the company to review all strategic alternatives. Also higher were shares of Aurizon Mines (AZK), up $1.12, or 32.37%, to $4.58 after Alamos Gold launched an offer to buy the miner for C$780M, and Halozyme (HALO), up $1.13, or 15.67%, to $8.34 following an upgrade to Outperform at BMO Capital. Among noteworthy losers was Cirrus Logic (CRUS), which fell $2.96 or 9.37%, to $28.62 as one of the Apple suppliers displaying weakness after the WSJ report.
