Gold imports by India slumped in September after a short-lived rebound as high prices prompted buyers to defer purchases.

Inbound shipments into the world’s second-biggest bullion consumer fell 38% in September from a year earlier to 8.4 tons, according to a person familiar with the data, who asked not to be identified as the information isn’t public. Imports were down from 35.5 tons in August. Finance Ministry spokesman Rajesh Malhotra didn’t immediately respond to a call to his mobile phone.

Buy the dip in AAPL ahead of ‘iPhone 12’ launch, says Morgan Stanley

Morgan Stanley sees Apple’s recent stock weakness as a “constructive set-up” heading into the “iPhone 12” launch season, since key data points remain strong.

In a note to investors seen by AppleInsider, Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty notes that AAPL shares are down around 20% since a peak in early September, underperforming the S&P 500 by about 12 points.

But Huberty sees the pullback and cautious hedge fund positioning as a positive for investors, since data points related to the expected “iPhone 12” launch are still strong.

Apple has reopened 57 total U.S. retail locations in the prior four weeks. On Sept. 23, the company reopened
