12:28 EDTPVH, GM, AXAS, HPQ, VRA, JOYOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks began the session in quiet fashion as they got little help from the dayís economic reports which included the weekly jobless claims data and the monthly Challenger Job Cuts report. The relatively benign numbers lifted the futures above fair value but gave it little momentum once the market opened. The averages drifted in a narrow range and pushed the S&P to a new all-time high. The market may continue to drift this afternoon as investors move to the sidelines ahead of tomorrowís nonfarm payrolls report. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims rose slightly, up 8,000 to 312,000, in the week of May 31. The Challenger Job-Cut Report for May came in at 52,961, an increase partially caused by a 16,000 employee layoff at Hewlett-Packard (HPQ). COMPANY NEWS: General Motors (GM) released the results of an internal investigation into the companyís delayed recall of defective ignition switches, with CEO Mary Barra saying the saga was "riddled with failure, leading to tragic results for many." Fifteen employees were fired for misconduct, incompetence or failure to act. MAJOR MOVERS: Joy Global (JOY) is up 6.31% after reporting Q2 earnings results and backing its FY14 guidance. Abraxas Petroleum (AXAS) is up 11.38% after raising its FY14 production guidance last night after the close. Abraxas was also upgraded to Buy from Neutral at SunTrust this morning. PVH Corp (PVH) is down 6.66% after reporting Q1 earnings results and lowering its FY14 EPS view. Vera Bradley (VRA) is down 3.6% after reporting Q1 earnings results and giving Q2 and FY15 guidance that did not meet analyst expectations. INDEXES: The Dow is up 97.10, or 0.58%, to 16,834.63; the Nasdaq is up 37.88, or 0.89%, to 4,289.52; and the S&P 500 is up 11.06, or 0.57%, to 1,938.96.

08:01 EDTGMStifel 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.
