On The Fly: Top stock stories for Tuesday

Stocks opened in positive territory and remained there for most of the session. The averages moved in a very narrow range as investors awaited and then focused on the new product presentation from Apple (AAPL). Shares of Apple were up as much as 2% early in the event, but fell, as is often the case with these events, as the presentation headed to a close. Despite the swing in Apple shares, the market held its gains, building on yesterday's rally. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the JOLTS report showed job openings rose 54,000 to 6.17M in July, hitting a new record high. In Europe, U.K. inflation accelerated to 2.9% in August, which was more than economists had expected. COMPANY NEWS: Apple shares finished the day fractionally lower at $160.82 following the tech giant's keynote event, during which it premiered several new iPhone models as well as the next version of its Apple Watch. While the tech giant announced the next standard editions of its smartphone, namely the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, the announcement of the iPhone X stole the show. The X, pronounced "ten," will serve as a premium edition of the iPhone with a 5.8-inch Super Retina display, wireless charging, and the ability to unlock, authenticate and pay using facial identification. The device, priced starting at $999, will be available on November 3, meaning that sales will be pushed into Apple's next fiscal year. The company also unveiled the Apple TV 4K as well as the Apple Watch Series 3, which will add built-in cellular capabilities to the wearable device... Meanwhile, shares of several big banks rose following their presentations at the Barclays financial services conference. Goldman Sachs (GS) shares rose over 2% after co-COO Harvey Schwartz said at the event that the firm sees $5B in revenue growth opportunities over the next three years, while shares of Wells Fargo (WFC) were almost 2% higher after guiding for 2017 net interest income growth in the low to mid single digits. Meanwhile, Bank of America (BAC) and JPMorgan (JPM) also gained, despite the banks pointing to potential year-over-year declines of 15% and 20%, respectively, in their third quarter trading revenues. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the noteworthy gainers was Inovalon (INOV), which advanced 17% after the stock was upgraded to Equal Weight from Underweight at Morgan Stanley. Also higher was Gap (GPS), which gained more than 6% after Jefferies analyst Randal Konik raised his price target on the stock to $39 and added the shares to his firm's Franchise Pick list, citing Old Navy's potential and the company's allocation of capital to support its growth. Among the notable losers was Intercept Pharmaceuticals (ICPT), which fell over 13% after the company sent a letter to health care providers highlighting the fact that liver injury, liver decompensation, liver failure, and death have been reported in primary biliary cholangitis patients with moderate or severe hepatic impairment when Ocaliva was dosed more frequently than recommended. Also lower was Sage Therapeutics (SAGE), which dropped more than 13% after the company's Phase 3 trial of brexanolone in Super Refractory Status Epilepticus, or SRSE, failed to meet its primary and secondary endpoints. INDEXES: The Dow rose 61.49, or 0.28%, to 22,118.86, the Nasdaq gained 22.02, or 0.34%, to 6,454.28, and the S&P 500 advanced 8.37, or 0.34%, to 2,496.48.

JPMorgan still confident Apple will integrate Broadcom's wireless charging
Ahead of today's next generation iPhone announcement, JPMorgan analyst Harlan Sur says he remains confident that Apple (AAPL) will integrate Broadcom's (AGO) wireless charging chip into the next iPhone family in the second half of 2017. Broadcom commenced manufacturing production of the chip back in late June with its foundry partners, Sur tells investors in a research note. The analyst is also confident that Apple will also use Broadcom's next generation Wi-Fi/Bluetooth combo chip which enables simultaneous Wi-Fi data transmit/receive on both 2.4Ghz/5Ghz bands and the new Bluetooth 5.0 standard. He sees at least a $3-$4 step-up, or 40%-45% increase, in dollar content for Broadcom in the new iPhone relative to last year's models. Sur reiterates an Overweight rating on Broadcom with a $315 price target.

JPMorgan lays out iPhone content winners and losers into launch event
JPMorgan analyst Harlan Sur believes Apple's (AAPL) launch event today will be positive for Broadcom (AVGO) and Qorvo (QRVO) as well as Micron (MU) and Intel (INTC). The analyst sees content gains by Broadcom in wireless charging, touch controller, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth and GPS connectivity, and by Qorvo in low band power amplifier duplexers share and antenna tuning. Other companies with significant Apple exposure that would benefit from increased unit sales and/or modest content gains include Intel, Skyworks (SWKS), Knowles (KN), Micron, Cypress Semiconductor (CY), NXP Semiconductors (NXPI) and Texas Instruments (TXN), Sur tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees Analog Devices' (ADI) blended content at Apple declining as he believes the company will not be the touch controller for the OLED-version of the iPhone.

Baird analyst David George does not see a great set-up for money-center banks heading into Q2 earnings. He said the trade looks crowded and he would be a seller into an extended rally. George said the risk/reward is less attractive following the sector's most recent rally as economic growth remains muted and the pace of NIM expansion may slow. George believes the biggest potential catalyst would be a gradual steepening of the yield curve and pick-up on loan growth.

Piper views Inovalon outlook as 'overly optimistic'
Piper Jaffray analyst Sean Wieland lowered his price target for Inovalon shares to $7 from $8 saying the company's 2017 outlook is "overly optimistic." Inovalon provided little detail on how it will go from an 18% revenue decline in the second half of 2016 to down 11% in the first half of 2017 to up 11% in the second half of the year, Wieland tells investors in a research note. While management said the whistleblower lawsuit unsealed last week against United alleging systemic Medicare Advantage fraud is without merit, the analyst expects the suit to change the risk adjustment landscape and drive greater insourcing of the function, which he thinks will likely pressure renewal rates. Wieland keeps an Underweight rating on Inovalon.

While the SRSE data is a clear setback, most view PPD/MDD as the more exciting opportunities longer term, which provides a support level for the stock, Nachman adds.
