Finance Latest News: Markets Slip Despite Positive Data

Wall Street was slipping as surprisingly strong economic figures out of Europe and upbeat earnings from Apple could not outweigh earlier concerns over China. In early trading, the Standard & Poor?s 500-share index was 0.2 percent lower and the Dow Jones industrial average fell 0.2 percent, while the Nasdaq composite was 0.1 percent nigher. Apple shares opened about 5 percent higher after the technology company's third-quarter profit beat analysts' expectations due to stellar sales of its iPhones. Apple Inc is not expected to show a big post-earnings swing when it reports fiscal third-quarter results after the closing bell on Tuesday, but this could also mean investors are under-hedged in case the company delivers a shock. The options market is pricing in a potential move up or down of 4 to near 5 percent in Apple's stock price following the results.
