U.S. stocks turn lower after jobless claims, earnings

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — U.S. stocks edged lower on Thursday as investors assessed weekly jobless claims and mixed earnings reports from Alcoa, Bed Bath & Beyond and other companies.

The number of Americans filing for initial unemployment benefits rose by less than expected, while the rate of layoffs remained historically low. Meanwhile, wholesale inventories edged up, as sales fell, in a sign that demand over the winter slowed down.

Market participants were gearing up for more earnings reports, after aluminum giant Alcoa unofficially kicked off the first-quarter U.S. earnings season on a downbeat note. More

Investors boo Alcoa, but most analysts remain cheerful
NEW YORK (MarketWatch)—Investors may be expressing their disappointment in Alcoa Inc.’s results, but Wall Street analysts remain mostly upbeat, saying the aluminum giant’s focus on cost-cutting and profits bodes well for shareholders over the longer term.

That put the stock on track to suffer its worst one-day, post-earnings performance since it dropped 5.4% on Jan. 13, 2014, after Alcoa missed fourth-quarter 2013 earnings estimates. More

The Apple Watch is a notification nag
The reviews are in for the Apple Watch – and its pesky notifications.

Apple has gone to great lengths to make the Apple Watch as minimally intrusive (and minimally annoying) as possible. Push notifications are part of a “taptic engine” that uses “haptic” technology by applying a sense of touch using an audio wave to your wrist whenever you receive an alert, or press down on the display. “The taptic engine creates a discreet, sophisticated, and nuanced experience by engaging more of your senses,” according to Apple. “It also enables some entirely new, intimate ways for you to communicate with other Apple Watch wearers.” More
