That's a little better. NASDAQ Futures are up 14 with +20 Fair Value, Dow Futures are up 44. China dropped again, Shanghai fell 2.1% and the Hang Seng dropped 3.4% on manufacturing data and more clues of an economic slowdown. On the other hand, European stocks are green after a rocky start and oil is up on stockpile data. US mortgage applications were up last week. Volkswagen seems to be stabilizing, though shares are down over 37% for the week. Pharmaceuticals such as Edwards Lifesciences Corp (EW), Allergan (AGN) and Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRTX) are down 5%, 3% and 2% respectively on the heated resistance against high drug prices.
AAPL opened about a point lower yesterday than Monday's 115 close, suffering along with the "broader market", and sold down to 112.52 by 1:30pm on moderate volume bot sawtooth. Later in the afternoon, AAPL recovered about a point to close intra-day at 113.4. After-hours was stable and uneventful until the last hour when AAPL dropped an additional 30 cents to close at 113.1.
