Elsewhere, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) shares fell 2% so far today following Foxconn Technology Group’s announcement that it would be freezing its hiring of assembly-line workers. Foxconn is the largest assembler of Apple products, indicating that sales of the tech gadgets may be slowing.
Finally, the herbal supplement company Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE:HLF) exceeded analyst expectations with its earnings release last night, though its results have not propelled it higher today, as the stock has stayed relatively flat.
