Wednesday Afternoon Business Brief

Wednesday Afternoon Business Brief

Stock prices are higher today. Investors await the announcement after tomorrow's Federal Reserve meeting, which could include new steps aimed at helping the economy.

  • British defense contractor BAE Systems and European aerospace giant EADS say they're in talks about combining their businesses into a global aerospace and defense group. Under the deal they envision, BAE Systems shareholders would own 40 percent and EADS shareholders 60 percent of the enlarged group.
  • Apple has unveiled the new iPhone 5. Apple calls it its thinnest and lightest yet. It also has a bigger screen, measuring 4 inches diagonally.
  • A new survey from the government finds more than 800,000 U.S. households lost access to basic banking services between January 2009 and June 2011. The FDIC says more than 8 percent of U.S. households have no access to bank accounts. More than 20 percent of black and Hispanic families didn't have access to traditional banking services.
  • Christian-oriented Hobby Lobby Stores has filed a federal lawsuit challenging a mandate in the nation's health care overhaul law that requires employers to provide coverage for the morning-after pill. The suit from the Oklahoma City-based chain claims the mandate forces the company's owners "to violate their deeply held religious beliefs".
