Stocks began the session in negative territory, extending their losses from yesterday. The slide followed a disappointing report on private sector hiring in March as well as data on manufacturing in the U.S., China and the eurozone. Investors are now looking forward to Fridayís nonfarm payrolls report, which will be issued as usual on the first Friday of the new month despite the fact that the stock market will be closed for the Good Friday holiday.

Construction spending declined 0.1% in February, as forecast. In China, the official PMI climbed to 50.1 in March from 49.9 in February, beating the estimate for a 49.7 reading. HSBC and Markitís manufacturing PMI also topped analystsí consensus forecast. In Europe, Markit's purchasing managers index for the eurozone rose to 52.2 in March from 51.0 in February. Markit had previously estimated in a flash reading that the PMI rose to 51.9 during last month. COMPANY NEWS: General Motors (GM) slipped 76c, or 2.03%, to $36.74 and Ford Motor (F) declined 23c, or 1.43%, to $15.91 after the automakers reported their U.S. sales fell 2.4% and 3.4%, respectively, in this March compared to the same month of last year...

MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Dyax (DYAX), which advanced $9.00, or 53.69%, to $25.75 after the drugmaker reported data from a Phase 1b clinical trial of its DX-2930 drug, a treatment for hereditary angioedema, or HAE. Also rising was Receptos (RCPT), which jumped $8.55, or 5.19%, to $173.44 after Bloomberg reported that the company received expressions of takeover interest while it was in partnership talks with other drugmakers. Among the noteworthy losers was UTi Worldwide (UTIW), which fell $2.32, or 18.86%, to $9.98 after its quarterly report and guidance prompted RBC Capital to downgrade the stock to Sector Perform and state that it has "lost confidence" in the company's ability to deliver top-line growth, cost cuts, and margin improvement near-term.

08:01 EDTFStifel says evidence supports Apple moving into electric vehicles
Analysts at Stifel say they see enough evidence to suggest that Apple is internally working on the development of a battery electric vehicle to be sold over the next five-to-ten years. The analysts are "intrigued" by Apple CFO Luca Maestri's background at General Motors (GM). They believe Apple's investments in manufacturing should be a key consideration for investors and point out the $40B spent by the iPhone maker over the past five years, with 80%-plus invested in manufacturing, is similar to GM, Ford (F) and Daimler-Benz and well above Tesla's $1.8B cumulative capex. The analysts say there is a "lot to think about" regarding Apple's move into the car space, including the regulatory environment. They keep a Buy rating on the tech giant with a $150 price target. Shares of Apple closed yesterday down 97c to $127.50.
