12:09 EDTAAPLOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were mixed at midday, with the Nasdaq clinging to narrow gains and the Dow and S&P both down about 0.25%. Stocks began the session basically unchanged but turned mixed within minutes of the open. The volume has been light and the market has moved in a narrow range, continuing the type of pattern that was seen all of last week ahead of the holiday. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., Markit's final manufacturing PMI for August dipped slightly from the flash print of 58.0 to 57.9, but that was up from July's 55.8 reading. ISM's manufacturing index for August climbed to 59.0 from 57.1 in July, beating expectations. Construction spending bounced back 1.8% in July, beating expectations for it to have risen 1.0% after declining in the prior month. In Asia, HSBC's final manufacturing PMI for China edged down to 50.2 from the preliminary 50.3 August reading, which was already down from the 51.7 report in July. The Chinese government's official purchasing managers index came in at 51.1 for August, which was down from its 51.7 reading in July. In Europe, the Eurozone's final manufacturing PMI for August was revised down to 50.7 from 51.8 in the preliminary reading. COMPANY NEWS: Apple (AAPL) was in the headlines following a celebrity photo hack involving several of its iCloud accounts. Despite the negative publicity from those events, the stock gained nearly 1% after noted Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster raised his price target on the tech giant's shares to $120 from $105, citing the upcoming launch of new products and services. Another firm, Cantor, said in its own note to investors that it believes that Apple will have its most exciting product launches "in many years" over the next few months... In M&A news, Dollar General (DG) rose almost 1% after increasing its all-cash proposal to buy Family Dollar (FDO) to $80.00 per share and also increasing the number of stores that it would be willing to agree to divest to 1,500 if ordered by the FTC. Shares of Family Dollar, which previously rejected Dollar General's prior proposal on the basis of antitrust regulatory concerns, traded above the new offer price, while Dollar Tree (DLTR), which currently has a merger agreement deal in place with Family Dollar, also gained 1.5%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were two other companies involved in M&A, one which was a buyer and one which was bought. Norwegian Cruise Line (NCLH) advanced 12% after agreeing to acquire upscale peer Prestige Cruises for $3.03B, while Compuware (CPWR) rose over 12% after the company confirmed it agreed to be acquired by private equity investment firm Thoma Bravo in a transaction valued at approximately $2.5B. Among the noteworthy losers was Exelixis (EXEL), which plunged 53% after its phase 3 pivotal trial of cabozantinib in certain men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer did not meet its primary endpoint and the stock was downgraded by at least three Street research firms. Also lower was lease-to-own retailer CONN'S (CONN), which dropped 30% and was downgraded at Piper Jaffray after weakness in its credit operations prompted a Q2 earnings miss and caused the company to cut its fiscal year guidance. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 43.58, or 0.25%, to 17,054.87, the Nasdaq was up 2.97, or 0.06%, to 4,583.24, and the S&P 500 was down 4.83, or 0.24%, to 1,998.54.
11:03 EDTAAPLApple hits another fresh life high, levels to watch

Traders appear more focused on the upcoming product announcement on September 9th. At the current price of $103.65, there is no overhead resistance. A new upside objective for the bulls would potentially be at $105 or $107, both typical and currently active options strike prices. Support is at $102.50, the prior closing price.

11:15 EDTAAPLGT Advanced retreats after analyst downgrades stock
Shares of sapphire maker GT Advanced (GTAT) are falling after research firm CLSA downgraded the stock in a note to investors today. The firm cited concerns about increased costs associated with the company's deal with Apple as the main reason for the downgrade. WHAT'S NEW: GT Advanced's costs associated with its deal to supply sapphire to Apple are being impacted by low yields, CLSA analyst Mark Heller wrote after speaking with strategic consulting firm Yole Dťveloppement. Lower yields will reduce the amount of sapphire that GT Advanced can produce for Apple, and will negatively affect GTís profit margins, explained Heller. He believes that GT Advanced's risk/reward ratio is balanced at current levels, and downgraded his rating on the shares to Underperform from Outperform. However, he raised his price target on the shares to $19 from $18. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, GT Advanced fell 2% to $18.
