Friday Afternoon Business Brief

October 26, 2012, 1:17 PM

Friday Afternoon Business Brief
  • Wall Street remains on track for a weekly loss. The key averages have slipped today as investors have reacted negatively to some weak corporate earnings reports.
  • The Commerce Department says economic growth accelerated in the third quarter, expanding at an annual rate of 2 percent. Even with the improvement from a 1.3 percent rate of GDP in the second quarter, the economy has not seen a large rise in job creation.
  • Investors have sent Apple stock below $600 for the first time in three months. The technology giant reported earnings for its latest quarter that missed expectations and warns that profits in the holiday quarter will fall short of last year's level. Apple stock is now down more than $100 from its peak of $705.
  • An Italian court has convicted former Premier Silvio Berlusconi of tax fraud and sentenced the media mogul to four years in prison. It is his first prison sentence in years of criminal probes. The 76-year-old billionaire businessman is expected to remain free at least until the appeals process is exhausted.
  • Federal safety regulators have opened an investigation into complaints that the throttles can stick on some older-model Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable sedans. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on its website that 50 drivers have complained about the problem in cars from the 2000 through 2003 model years. No crashes have been reported and no one has been reported hurt.
