Stocks on Wall Street were mixed, with the Dow and S&P 500 gaining in the second half of the session to close in positive territory. Tech headlines dominated the day, as a Facebook (FB) event at 1 pm ET prompted heavy volume trading of shares of the social network. Aside from Facebook, volume was fairly light again ahead of earnings reports due tomorrow morning from a number of financial giants... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the January Empire State Manufacturing Survey from the New York Fed rose slightly to -7.78 from last month's -8.10 reading, but missed forecasts for a rise to 0.00. The Commerce Department said retail sales increased 0.5% in December, versus the expected increase of 0.2%. Producer prices fell 0.2% during last month, versus the expected decrease of 0.1%. Business inventories grew 0.3% in November, matching expectations... COMPANY NEWS: Facebook unveiled "Graph Search," which will be rolled out in a limited beta test beginning today. The search feature is designed to answer questions in a way particular to the user based on information in their own Facebook feed and those of their friends, but is a supplement, not a replacement, for traditional web searches like Google's (GOOG). In fact, Facebook announced that Microsoft's (MSFT) Bing is a partner in the new tool. Shares of Facebook slipped 85c, or 2.74%, to $30.10 on the day on trading volume nearly three times the stock's average... Apple's (AAPL) move below $500 garnered significant attention amid some conflicting analyst commentary. Research firm Nomura lowered its estimates and price target for Apple, while Sterne Agee, Jefferies and RW Baird all made positive comments and Apple closed down $15.83, or 3.15%, at $485.92... Dell (DELL) gained another 88c, or 7.16%, to $13.17 a day after rising on a Bloomberg report that said the company was in talks to go private. A Wall Street Journal report said TPG Capital and Silver Lake Partners are involved in a potential bid for Dell and Reuters added that talks with Silver Lake are in "advanced" stages. Analyst commentary on the possibility of a deal getting done was mixed, though Deutsche Bank said a deal could be done at $15-$16 per share while Jefferies said a deal could be done between $15-$17 per share... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Express (EXPR), up $3.34 or 23.76%, to $17.40 after raising its Q4 and FY12 EPS views, and EnerNOC (ENOC), up $3.20, or 25.48%, to $15.76 following an EPA final ruling on emission control requirements for backup diesel generators. Among the noteworthy losers was Coldwater Creek (CWTR), down $1.13, or 22.60%, to $3.87 after lowering its Q4 EPS view. Also lower were shares of Yelp (YELP), down $1.36, or 6.19%, to $20.61 after Facebook announced its new Graph Search feature... INDICES: The Dow was up 27.57, or 0.20%, to 13,534.89; the Nasdaq was down 6.72, or 0.22%, to 3,110.78; and the S&P 500 was up 1.66, or 0.11%, to 1,472.34.

07:34 EDTAAPLLeak points to sapphire screen for 4.7" iPhone 6
A newly posted YouTube video supposedly shows the screen that will be used in Apple's (AAPL) upcoming 4.7" iPhone 6 and claims that the part confirms that the smaller new model will have a sapphire display, not Gorilla Glass from Corning (GLW). The video adds that the existence of the part dispels rumors that only the larger, 5.5" iPhone 6 would feature a sapphire display. Note that Apple has a sapphire contract with GT Advanced Technologies (GTAT). Reference Link
