Apple admits issues with Apple Watch connectivity, stock falls
Apple Inc. shares declined Wednesday morning after the tech company reportedly admitted there are issues with connectivity of its new Apple Watch Series 3. The new Apple smartwatch is the first to connect to cellular networks on its own, without having to be electronically tethered to an iPhone, but reviewers had issues staying connected while reviewing the new device. According to The Verge, Apple admitted an issue in an official statement, saying, "We have discovered that when Apple Watch Series 3 joins unauthenticated Wi-Fi networks without connectivity, it may at times prevent the watch from using cellular. We are investigating a fix for a future software release." The new Apple Watch, which costs at least $399 for versions with a cellular connection, opened for preorders last Friday and will begin reaching customers Sept. 22.

UPDATE: Alnylam shares jump 24% on positive results from late-stage trial of hATTR amyloidosis treatment
Sanofi and Alnylam Pharmaceuticals Inc. on Wednesday reported positive results in a late-stage trial of a treatment for Hereditary ATTR (hATTR) Amyliodosis patients with polyneuropathy. Alnylam shares jumped 24% after resuming trading following a halt. In a joint statement, the companies said an investigational RNAi therapeutic met its primary and secondary endpoints. The disease is an inherited one that is progressively debilitating and often fatal and is caused by mutations in the TTR gene. TTR protein is produced in the liver and usually acts as a carrier for vitamin A. Mutations can cause proteins to accumulate and damage organs and tissue, including the heart. About 50,000 people worldwide suffer from the disease, which currently has no approved treatment apart from liver transplant. Patients typically have a life expectancy of 2.5 to 15 years after the first symptoms appear. "This is a significant milestone that supports our belief that RNAi therapeutics have the potential to become an innovative new class of medicines for patients with rare genetic diseases," said Elias Zerhouni, M.D., president, global R&D at Sanofi in a statement. Alnylam shares had gained 100.4% in 2017 through Tuesday, while the S&P 500 has gained 12%. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

FBI was wiretapping ex-Trump campaign chairman Manafort as late as this year: report
Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was secretly wiretapped by the FBI before and after the presidential election, CNN reported late Monday. The report said the surveillance continued until early this year, a time period when Manafort and President Donald Trump were still communicating, though it was not immediately clear if his conversations with Trump had been captured. CNN said special counsel Robert Mueller's investigative team has been given details of Manafort's intercepted communications. While sources told CNN the evidence may not be not conclusive, FBI investigators were reportedly concerned that Manafort was encouraging Russian meddling in the election. The secret surveillance order was first approved by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court in 2014, and renewed at some point last year. Earlier this summer, Manafort's home was raided by the FBI and his spokesman subpoenaed by the Mueller investigation. In late August, it was reported that Mueller was working with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in his Manafort investigation to share potential evidence of financial crimes. In a separate report Monday, the New York Times said Mueller's investigators told Manafort during the raid on his house that they planned to indict him.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
