On the economic front, the Labor Department’s wholesale price inflation report for October showed that the headline producer price index rose 0.2% from the previous month compared to expectations for a 0.4% increase. The year-over-year rate cooled off to 8% from 8.3%. 

This data can be viewed as important given producer prices could be seen as a leading indicator for consumer prices.

Per the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in October, the rise in the index for final demand can be attributed to a 0.6% advance in prices for final demand goods. In contrast, the index for final demand services decreased 0.1 percent. Prices for final demand less foods, energy, and trade services advanced 0.2% in October following a 0.3% rise in September. For the 12 months ended in October, the index for final demand less foods, energy, and trade services increased 5.4%.

According to data from Benzinga Pro, AAPL has a 52-week high of $182.94 and a 52-week low of $129.04.
