Sept 11 (Reuters) - Some U.S. stocks to watch on Wednesday:
FUTURES FLAT AFTER SIX-DAY RUN, OBAMA SPEECH
U.S. stock index futures were little changed, and the S&P 500 appeared set to pause after six straight days of gains, after President Obama pledged to explore Russia's diplomatic plan to remove chemical weapons from Syria. S&P 500 futures slipped 0.2 point, Dow Jones industrial average futures rose 7 points, and Nasdaq 100 futures lost 6.5 points.
** APPLE INC, Tuesday close $494.64, down 2.5 pct premarket
The new plastic-backed iPhone 5C will sell for 4,488 yuan ($730) in China, almost $200 more than the United States retail price of $549 and only 800 yuan ($130) less than its top-of-the-line sibling, the 5S. The pricing of what was expected to be a cheap model aimed at growth markets such as China and India has not only stumped investors, but also Apple aficionados in China, the world's largest smartphone market.
