Monday Afternoon Business Brief

January 14, 2013, 1:20 PM

Monday Afternoon Business Brief

Stocks are mixed on Wall Street, with the Dow in positive territory and the S&P 500 and Nasdaq lower. Apple stock has tumbled on concern that demand for the iPhone 5 is waning. The Wall Street Journal reported that the company has cut its orders for iPhone 5 components due to weak demand. Traders are also waiting to hear what Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has to say when he speaks in Michigan as the markets close.

  • President Barack Obama is insisting he won't negotiate with Republicans over increasing the government's borrowing authority. Republicans are demanding spending cuts in exchange for raising the debt ceiling. Obama says those negotiations should take place separately, but House Speaker John Boehner says that "allowing our spending problem to go unresolved" would be just as troublesome as failing to raise the  borrowing cap.
  • Chrysler says it's in talks to build some of its Jeeps in China for that market. Chrysler President and CEO Mike Manley says Jeep already sells several models in China and any production there would be "relatively incremental." He says U.S. will always be the home of the Jeep.
  • A transportation agency has filed a lawsuit alleging that United Airlines is avoiding tens of millions of dollars in taxes by falsely claiming it buys jet fuel in rural Illinois rather than Chicago. The Regional Transportation Authority says United Aviation Fuels Corp., a subsidy of United Airlines, is paying a fraction of what it really owes in taxes by operating a "sham" office in the town of Sycamore. The airline says its actions are perfectly legal.
  • PayPal is expanding its payment service to more brick-and-mortar retailers, including RadioShack and Dollar General stores. EBay Inc.'s payments subsidiary says that as of the end of 2012 it had agreements with 23 retailers to accept PayPal in their stores. PayPal is already accepted at Barnes & Noble, Foot Locker and the Home Depot, among other retailers.
