  • The world's most valuable company, Apple is reporting that it sold 35 million iPhones in the first quarter. That's nearly twice as many as were sold a year ago and above expectations. Earnings of $12.30 a share were also well ahead of forecasts.
  • Americans' confidence in the economy has remained steady this morning, according to the latest snapshot from the Conference Board. The business research group says its index stood at 69.2, down from a revised 69.5 in March.
