11:57 EDTKNDI, TSLA, NSANY, GMChinese electric vehicle maker Kandi surges after tax break news
Shares of Chinese electric car maker Kandi Technologies (KNDI) are surging after a Chinese newspaper reported that electric cars made outside of China would not qualify for a key tax break in the country. WHAT'S NEW: A key sales tax will not be waived on purchases of electric cars made outside of China, said Su Bo, China's vice-minister of the Industry and Information Technology Ministry, according to China Daily.

WHAT'S NOTABLE: Tesla Motors (TSLA), Nissan (NSANY) and GM (GM) have all sought to sell electric vehicles in China.

12:33 EDTGMOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher to begin the day, as reports spurred optimism that a ceasefire agreement between Russia and the Ukraine may soon be reached. The move was short lived, as the averages turned mixed during the second hour of trading. Shares of Apple (AAPL) are weighing down the Nasdaq after an analyst recommended investors take some profits in the stock. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., factory orders rose 10.5% in July, which was a bit below the forecast for 11.0% growth. The Fed's Beige Book is scheduled to be released at 2:00 pm ET. In Europe, the final reading of Eurozone services PMI was knocked down to 53.1 from a preliminary 53.5 reading, mirroring the lowering of the Eurozone manufacturing PMI reading yesterday. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Apple retreated 4% after research firm Pacific Crest advised investors to take some profits in the stock. Pacific Crest analyst Andy Hargreaves forecast the percentage of new iPhone users who buy the next version of the device beyond the iPhone 6 is likely to decline versus prior cycles. The stock likely has only limited room to increase, according to Hargreaves, who said he would probably downgrade Apple unless new products that can generate billions of dollars in new operating profit are launched at its September 9 event... Carmakers reported on August vehicle sales in the U.S., with Chrysler (FIATY) reporting a 20% increase, Ford stating that sales rose slightly compared to the prior year and General Motors (GM) posting a 1.2% decline in sales. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Infinity Pharmaceuticals (INFI), which jumped 46% after the company announced a cancer drug collaboration with AbbVie (ABBV) and a master clinical supply agreement with Roche (RHHBY). Also higher was Mobileye (MBLY), which gained nearly 10% after Morgan Stanley wrote that the stock could rise "towards $100" if the company maintains its current market, gross margins and earnings position. Mobileye is scheduled to report on its second quarter results tomorrow morning, which will be its first quarterly report since its August IPO. Among the noteworthy losers was Repros Therapeutics (RPRX), which dropped 15% after newly posted FDA briefing documents regarding a panel on T-normalizing therapies prompted Piper Jaffray to downgrade the stock to Neutral from Overweight. Also lower following its earnings report was apparel company Vince Holding (VNCE), which fell 11%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 33.71, or 0.2%, to 17,101.27, the Nasdaq was down 23.24, or 0.51%, to 4,574.95, and the S&P 500 was down 0.64, or 0.03%, to 2,001.64.
12:02 EDTTSLATesla hits fresh life high, and then turns lower
The shares have gone negative on the day after hitting a high of $288 earlier in the session, which is a fresh life high for the stock. That high did not hold for long, with price now at $281.92. A look at a 5-day chart shows what is a relatively characteristic behavior for the shares. It tends to advance by gaps, consolidates, and then gaps higher the following session and in the process creates bear traps. On a longer-term time frame it would take a breakdown below the prior session gap at the $275 area for the shares to be in any sort of real technical trouble. Resistance is at $284.12, the prior day close.

08:06 EDTTSLATesla upgraded at Stifel
As noted earlier, Stifel upgraded Tesla to Buy from Hold. The firm upgraded the stock as it thinks the company has obtained "a defensible" market "niche," while it has a head start in production and demand is unlikely to become a headwind for it until late in the decade at the earliest. Target $400.
