Take a look at some of Monday morning’s early movers:
Apple - Apple has announced a $2.65 a share share quarterly dividend , to commence in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. It will also buy back $10 billion in stock over a three-year period, beginning in fiscal 2013. The company said it will be able to maintain a sufficient war chest for strategic opportunities even with these payouts.
Sprint Nextel - Bernstein has downgraded the stock to “underperform” from “market perform,” saying the risks of bankruptcy for Sprint are rising, although the firm is not predicting that this will occur.
United Parcel Service - Dutch rival TNT Express has accepted a sweetened $6.85 billion takeover bid that makes UPS the biggest package-delivery service in Europe. This could also move shares of UPS rival FedEx.
Dun & Bradstreet - The provider of business information services has suspended operations in one of its Chinese units, amid allegations that some of its employees there may have violated Chinese bribery laws.Page 1 of 3 | Next Page
