U.S. stocks are higher amid waning "Brexit" fearsAmong the equities in focus today are tech giant Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), biotech stock Hologic, Inc. (NASDAQ:HOLX), and Chinese e-tailer JD.Com Inc (ADR) (NASDAQ:JD).
 
  • AAPL is up 1.3% at $96.52, following a mixed bag of news from the company, including: reports that it will not be providing any support to the upcoming Republican convention in light on Donald Trump's controversial comments on issues such as immigration and minorities; concerns about Apple Inc. losing its weighting in the Russell 2000 Index (RUT); and reports that AAPL could open its first stores in India, after the Indian government loosened foreign retailer requirements. AAPL is down nearly 25% year-over-year, and the shares touched a two-year low in early May, following a historic losing streak. Option traders seem increasingly wary of AAPL, with the stock's 50-day put/call volume ratio at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) of 0.72 sitting higher than 94% of all other readings from the past year. However, analysts remain optimistic towards the stock, with 25 of 30 offering up a "buy" or better position, and only one "sell" recommendation to be found. Should AAPL continue to struggle, a flood of downgrades could exacerbate selling pressure.
