Apple Breaks Record, Stocks See Little Change on Monday (AAPL, AET)

On Monday European leaders began another round of negotiations and plans for Greece and Spain and at the same time quelled rumors over certain market intervention. Stocks ended with little change after six weeks of gains and gas prices have reached an all time high for August. Aetna Inc. (AET) made a big announcement about plans to acquire Coventry Health Care for $7.3 billion. Apple (AAPL) has now reached a new high in share price and has surpassed the previous record set by Microsoft (MSFT) nearly a decade ago.
Investors await news from the Feds last meeting that will be released later this week. Gold futures are currently at a two-month high.
