16:34 EDTAAPLOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in quiet fashion and trading remained that way throughout the day. The Dow and S&P moved in a narrow range and hugged the flat line, while the Nasdaq drifted steadily higher and added nearly 1% by the close of trade. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed national activity index fell to 0.14 in October, versus expectations for a reading of 0.33. Markit's services PMI fell to 56.3 in the flash reading for November, versus expectations for a slight increase to 57.3 from its prior reading of 57.1. The Dallas Fed manufacturing index was steady at 10.5 in November, versus expectations for a 9.0 reading. Overseas, the euro area’s largest economy, Germany, saw a business climate index advance to 104.7 in November from 103.2 in October, beating economists' prediction for a decline to a reading of 103. COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL) had a role in the Nasdaq's outperformance, as the tech giant climbed after a number of research firms, including Susquehanna, Cantor and KGI Research, were upbeat on the outlook for the company's performance during the holiday season. The iPhone maker's stock rose $2.15, or 1.85%, to close at $118.62 to close just below the 52-week high of $118.77 it hit late in the session... United Technologies (UTX) fell $1.51, or 1.37%, to $108.79 after the Dow member announced that Louis Chenevert had retired as Chairman and CEO, effective immediately. The company reaffirmed its expectations for 2014 earnings per share and sales, but provided little information regarding the abrupt exit of the executive. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Prosensa (RNA), which surged $7.16, or 62.59%, to $18.60 after the small drugmaker agreed to be acquired by larger BioMarin (BMRN). After the deal announcement BioMarin shares also rose $2.11, or 2.46%, to $87.94, while Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT), which is working on a Duchenne muscular dystrophy treatment to rival Prosensa's, advanced 88c, or 5.59%, to $16.61. Also higher was Cimatron (CIMT), which jumped $2.57, or 42.27%, to $8.65 after 3D Systems (DDD) agreed to buy the company for approximately $97M, or $8.97 per share, in cash. Among the noteworthy losers was Ring Energy (REI), which fell $1.28, or 9.54%, to $12.14 after Canaccord downgraded the stock to Hold from Buy, citing the the recent decline in crude oil prices and the potential need for the company to raise capital. Also lower were shares of Potash (POT), which fell $2.23, or 6.09%, to $34.40, and Mosaic (MOS), which slid $1.75, or 3.71%, to $45.46 after Russia's Uralkali, the world's largest potash producer, was reported to be set to start repair work at part of its damaged mine. INDEXES: The Dow added 7.84, or 0.04%, to 17,817.90, the Nasdaq rose 41.92, or 0.89%, to 4,754.89, and the S&P 500 gained 5.91, or 0.29%, to 2,069.41.

06:28 EDTAAPLBillboard 200 chart to include on-demand streaming in rankings
The Billboard 200 albums chart will premiere its biggest upgrade in more than 23 years, transforming from a pure sales-based ranking to one measuring multi-metric consumption. Beginning with the top 10 revealed on Wednesday, Dec. 3, on Billboard.com, the chart, which currently tracks the top 200 albums of the week by sales alone, will be the first to include on-demand streaming and digital track sales -- as measured by Nielsen Entertainment (NLSN) -- by way of a new algorithm. It is the most substantial methodology update since May 1991, when Billboard first used Nielsen's point-of-sale data -- SoundScan -- to measure album sales. The updated Billboard 200 will utilize accepted industry benchmarks for digital and streaming data, equating 10 digital track sales from an album to one equivalent album sale, and 1,500 song streams from an album to one equivalent album sale. All of the major on-demand audio subscription services are considered, including Spotify, Beats Music (AAPL), Google Play (GOOG) and Xbox Music (MSFT). Reference Link

13:28 EDTAAPLBlackBerry hits 52-week high after unveiling partnerships
Shares of BlackBerry (BBRY) hit a new 52-week high after the company announced three new partnership deals. The company is slated to hold its analyst day today, starting at 3:30 PM ET. WHAT'S NEW: BlackBerry announced that it would partner with Samsung to provide a security solution for the South Korean company's mobile devices that utilize Google's (GOOG) Android operating system. Under the deal, BlackBerry’s BES12, an Enterprise Mobility Management system, or EMM that was launched today, will be integrated with some of Samgung's Galaxy smartphones and tablets. BES 12 "securely manages devices from all of the major enterprise mobile platforms" and "will help organizations securely connect employees with each other and with the corporate information and machines” they need, BlackBerry stated. Also today, Blackberry announced that it would connect its EMM solutions to Salesforce's (CRM) top customer relationship management platform. "This agreement will allow Salesforce and BlackBerry joint customers to run their businesses from their phone while complying with specific industry regulations," said Vivek Kundra, a Salesforce Executive Vice President in a statement. "BlackBerry has an excellent reputation in security and networks, and when matched with the Salesforce Customer Success Platform, public sector organizations can use their mobile devices to connect with customers in a whole new way," added Kundra. Finally, BlackBerry announced that Brightstar would distribute BES 12. BlackBerry described Brightstar as "the world's largest wireless distribution company and leader in services for the wireless industry." WHAT'S NOTABLE: BES12 is expected to compete with Apple (AAPL) in the enterprise space. Apple earlier this year announced that it was partnering with IBM (IBM) in an effort to sell more products to corporate customers. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, BlackBerry jumped 6% to $11.95. Earlier today the shares set a new 52-week high of $12.05.
