5 Things You Need to Know Today

  1. Asian stocks finished the day mixed, with Japan dropping ahead of the Bank of Japan's (BoJ) next policy meeting, while Hong Kong rose on gambling stocks.
  2. The Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) saw 949,120 call contracts traded on Wednesday, compared to 519,484 put contracts. The resultant single-session equity put/call ratio fell to 0.55, while the 21-day moving average fell to 0.65.
  3. Aerie Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:AERI) is up a whopping 72.5% in electronic trading -- and could open at an all-time high -- after the biotech reported positive trial data for its drug Roclatan, which lowers fluid pressure in the eye. The news was met with no fewer than four price-target hikes, including a jump to $52 from $45 by Needham, and comes just a day after Raymond James said the firm "could emerge as a major player in the ophthalmology space."
  4. Tech giant Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is set to open up 1.2% -- extending its recent run higher -- after the company said initial quantities of the iPhone 7 Plus have already sold out, and will be unavailable for walk-in purchases. 
  5. Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) is sitting 0.3% higher before the bell, paring some of yesterday's losses that followed the automaker's announcement that increased costs will weigh on its 2017 results. F is also attempting to shrug off a price-target cut to $15 from $16 at J.P. Morgan Securities.
