Marketplace Morning Report for Thursday, September 13, 2012

The Federal Reserve wraps up its two day policy meeting today. It's expected to announce whether it will pump more stimulus money into the U.S. economy. That would make a third round of so-called "quantitative easing." Directors at Ford Motor Company are meeting today. There's word the agenda could include the first step toward a change in management at the company. And in case you missed the big launch, Apple's iPhone 5 was unveiled last night. Fifty million iPhone 5s could get snapped up by the end of the year. And each one is a potential cash cow for the wireless carrier the iPhone customer chooses.
