    Investors weigh whether to ditch stocks for bonds as yields finally offer an alternative

    31 Years After Black Monday, the Fed Still Plays a Supporting Role in the Market

    At the end of a tumultuous week, few investors took note that Friday was the 31st anniversary of Black Monday—Oct, 19, 1987. The Dow popped up 548 points on Tuesday, but that amounted to less than a tenth of the percentage change of Black Monday. Black Monday’s significance, more than being the single worst day for stocks in U.S. history, is that it established what became known as “the Greenspan put.” To counter the feared economic impact of a stock-market meltdown, the Fed under then-Chairman Alan Greenspan cut interest rates, stoking a huge bond rally, which led to a recovery in equities.

    Qualtrics International Inc., a Utah-based software company filed for an initial public offering Friday. The company did not yet provide a number of shares it expects to offer or an expected price, but said it plans to raise $200 million, which is likely a placeholder amount.

The company said its "new category of software" enables organizations to succeed in the "experience economy." Qualtrics said it lost $3.4 million on revenue of $184.2 million during the six months ending June 30, 2018, compared with a loss of $3.71 million on revenue of $131.4 million in the same period a year ago.

    Apple CEO Tim Cook calls for retraction of hacking story

    Apple Inc. Chief Executive Tim Cook took an extraordinary step of publicly demanding the retraction of a Bloomberg News story that claimed compromised motherboards made their way into Apple servers. In an interview with Buzzfeed, Cook said "There is no truth in their story about Apple," and called for it to be retracted. Buzzfeed reported it was the first time an Apple CEO had publicly called for such a move, even though it has faced demonstrably false content previously, such as a This American Life episode on Apple's Asian manufacturing that was found to be fabricated. Bloomberg reported earlier this month, based on multiple anonymous sources including three former Apple employees, that China managed to put small chips on Super Micro Computer Inc. motherboards that made their way into servers used by more than two dozen companies, including Apple and Amazon.com Inc. Bloomberg has stood by the story despite vociferous denials from the companies named in the report, and told Buzzfeed for its story, "We stand by our story and are confident in our reporting and sources." Apple stock was up 1.5% in Friday trading, even as the Nasdaq Composite Index was down 0.2%.
