Apple denies reported interest in TikTok acquisition
Apple Inc. has reportedly denied interest in acquiring TikTok after an Axios story from earlier Tuesday said that Apple was looking into a potential deal for the social-media app given that the U.S. has threatened to ban it from the U.S. due to national security concerns about Chinese parent company ByteDance. An Apple spokesperson told Axios following that report that the company hasn't held discussions about buying TikTok and isn't interested in a deal. Apple didn't immediately respond to a MarketWatch request for comment. Microsoft Corp. is considered to be the most logical bidder for TikTok and the company confirmed over the weekend that it would continue discussions about a possible deal. Apple shares are up 0.6% in Tuesday trading, while Microsoft shares are down 2.7%. Apple's stock has added 50% over the past three months, compared with an 18% rise for Microsoft's and a 13% gain for the Dow Jones Industrial Average , of which both Apple and Microsoft are components.

Stocks open modestly lower a day after Nasdaq hits record

Investors eyed another round of earnings along with negotiations between Democrats and Republicans around a new coronavirus relief package. Without additional stimulus funds, the U.S. recovery could suffer setbacks, according to analysts. Ralph Lauren Inc. stock fell 6.2% on Tuesday after the luxury lifestyle brand reported fiscal first-quarter revenue that missed expectations.

Arconic swings to wider-than-expected loss and sales fall short as pandemic hurt end markets
Arconic Corp. swung to a wider-than-expected loss in the second quarter and revenue missed estimates, as the coronavirus pandemic hurt the car, aerospace, industrial and construction markets that it serves. The Pittsburgh, Pa.-based maker of aluminum used in cars and planes said it had a loss of $92 million, or 84 cents a share, in the quarter, after income of $5 million, or 4 cents a share, in the year-earlier period. Sales slumped to $1.187 billion from $1,923 billion. The FactSet consensus was for a loss of 16 cents a share, and sales of $1.283 billion. The net loss includes $76 million of after-tax special items primarily related to a non-cash charge to annuitize U.K. pension obligations, debt issuance costs, plant closure costs, and a previously announced restructuring. Arconic started operating as a stand-alone company on April 1, "when sudden declines in critical end markets due to the COVID-19 pandemic shut down many of its customers' production facilities around the world," it said in a statement. The company took $200 million of cash conservation measures in April and has since increased that target to $250 million. Shares were not active premarket, but have gained 30% in the month to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 5%.

Kodak's stock tumbles again, after disclosure that investors have converted debt into nearly 30 million common shares
Shares of Eastman Kodak Co. were down 24% in afternoon trading Monday, putting them on track for a third straight double-digit percentage decline, after the digital printing and film company, which is getting into the pharmaceutical-ingredients business, disclosed that holders of convertible notes were exercising their right to convert those notes into common stock. The stock has now dropped 50% since skyrocketing sixteenfold in three days to $33.20 on July 29, after the Trump administration announced on July 28 that Kodak had received a $765 million loan as part of a Defense Production Act directive to loosen the reliance on foreign sources for pharmaceutical ingredients. In an 8-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday, Kodak said the holders of the 5.00% convertible notes due 2021, which were issued in May 2019, are converted a total of $95 million of the notes into 29.9 million shares of Kodak common stock, on July 29. That would imply a value of $3.175 per converted share, while the stock was currently trading at $16.58. On July 27, Kodak granted Chief Executive James Continenza options to buy Kodak stock at various strike prices, which are now all in the money, to "protect" him from dilution of his share holdings, in case the convertible debt issued in May 2019 were converted into stock. Kodak's stock has now rallied nearly fourfold (up 256.6%) year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 2.0%.
