Although we have different views on the matter, we believe we have settled our disputes with Apple and see no point in further addressing the circumstances that led to our Chapter 11 filing or our relationship with Apple.

We remain optimistic that the Bankruptcy Court will approve the Apple Settlement Agreement on November 25th because it is in the best interest of all parties."

16:36 EDTAAPLOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
The Dow began the session with triple digit gains, but the move was short lived and so was the positive start for the equities market, which tumbled with oil prices and struggled for the remainder of the session. The day’s economic reports, which included the Empire Manufacturing report, industrial production and capacity utilization reports, and the NAHB housing market index, had little effect on the market. Stocks recovered a bit but did not get back into the green before the close, with investors wondering how the Fed, which begins its final FOMC meeting of the year tomorrow, will view its strategy in light of the recent weakness in oil. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Empire State manufacturing index fell to -3.6 in December, which was significantly worse than the expectation for it to rise to 12.4 from its prior 10.2 reading. Industrial production jumped 1.3% in November, which was better than the expected 0.7% increase. The NAHB homebuilder sentiment index fell one point to 57 in December, versus expectations for a one point rise to a 59 reading. Near noon, WTI crude was down more than 2% and was trading below $57 per barrel. COMPANY NEWS: Riverbed Technology (RVBD) rose $1.57, or 8.38%, to $20.31 after the company agreed to be acquired by private equity investment firm Thoma Bravo and the private investor department of Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan. Riverbed stockholders will receive $21 per share in cash, or a total of approximately $3.6B, which Wells Fargo views as a "good decision" and good deal for the company given the challenges in its business... PetSmart (PETM) advanced $3.30, or 4.25%, to $80.97 after the company agreed to be acquired by a consortium led by BC Partners at a price of $83.00 per share in cash. However, the private equity backers of Petco that were not allowed to participate in the auction process because of competition concerns, Leonard Green & Partners and TPG, could still make a rival offer, according to The Deal Pipeline, citing a source familiar with the situation. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Sorrento Therapeutics (SRNE), which advanced $1.50, or 25.86%, to $7.30 after the company announced that it has entered into a binding agreement with NantWorks founder Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong to establish a strategic collaboration to jointly develop next generation immunotherapies for the treatment of cancer and auto-immune diseases. Also higher was Cirrus Logic (CRUS), which rallied $4.12, or 21.87%, to $22.96 after Barclays upgraded the stock two notches to Overweight from Underweight and said the company is poised to make significantly more money per each iPhone sold next year. Among the noteworthy losers was CGG SA (CGG), which was downgraded to Underperform at Raymond James and dropped $2.41, or 28.29%, to $6.11 after Technip (TKPPY) said that it does not plan to file a tender for the company after talks between the companies did not result in a deal. Also lower were shares of Habit Restaurants (HABT), which fell $7.20, or 17.19%, to $34.69 as analysts rolled out coverage of the stock following its IPO about a month ago. Amid the coverage initiations, Habit Restaurants shares were initiated with a Neutral and $41 price target at RW Baird, with a Market Perform rating at Wells Fargo, with an Equal Weight at Stephens and with an Overweight rating and $48 target at Piper Jaffray. INDEXES: The Dow fell 99.99, or 0.58%, to 17,180.84, the Nasdaq dropped 48.44, or 1.04%, to 4,605.16, and the S&P 500 declined 12.70, or 0.63%, to 1,989.63.

12:15 EDTAAPLCirrus jumps after Barclays ups stock two notches citing Apple opportunity
Shares of Cirrus (CRUS) are rallying after Barclays upgraded the stock two notches to Overweight from Underweight in a note to investors today. The company is poised to make significantly more money per each iPhone sold next year, the firm stated. Cirrus develops audio components for smartphones. WHAT'S NEW: Cirrus will obtain $2.50-$3.50 for each of Apple's (AAPL) iPhone 6S sold next year, up from about $2 for Apple's latest iPhone, the iPhone 6, Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis wrote. A new component made by Cirrus will enable smartphones to always respond to voice commands, even if the devices are turned off, the analyst reported. The new component can also enable Cirrus to obtain more revenue from Android phones, Curtis wrote. The company should obtain a significant amount of revenue from Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S6 devices, the analyst contended. He hiked his 2015 earnings per share estimate for the company to $1.55 from $1.19 and increased his price target on Cirrus shares to $28 from $18. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading Cirrus rallied 19.4% to $22.50.

10:20 EDTGOOGYahoo rises, Google falls after BofA changes ratings on both
Shares of Yahoo (YHOO) are rising and Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) stock is falling after Bank of America Merrill Lynch upgraded Yahoo and downgraded Google. WHAT'S NEW: Bank of America analyst Justin Post upgraded his rating on Yahoo to Buy from Neutral. Post said he had previously not expected to obtain information about Yahoo's strategy for avoiding taxes on the sale of its stake in Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABA) at least until well into 2015. However, Yahoo's CFO recently stated that the company continued to be optimistic that it would be able to cut its tax bill and added that the company would divulge its plans for doing so during its next earnings conference call. Yahoo's next earnings conference call is expected to take place by the end of next month, Post noted. He set a $62 price target on Yahoo shares. Meanwhile, Post downgraded Google to Neutral from Buy. The analyst thinks the company is facing several headwinds, including the maturity of its search business, a lack of products that can provide catalysts, and margin pressures as it invests in competitive businesses. As a result of these headwinds, Google's results are likely to be below expectations, Post believes. Meanwhile, the company is also facing increased regulatory risk, particularly in the EU, and increased competition from Facebook (FB) and other social networks. He trimmed his price target on Google to $580 from $600. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Yahoo climbed 1% to $50.94, while Google class A shares declined 1.5% to $534.33.
