Stocks could be range bound until the Fed policy makers meet next week, says Robert Johnson of the American College of Financial Services. SOUNDBITE: ROBERT JOHNSON, PRESIDENT & CEO, AMERICAN COLLEGE OF FINANCIAL SERVICES (ENGLISH) SAYING: "The market is waiting for clarity. And, I truly believe, the Fed would be well advised to simply do a 25 basis point rate hike and get it over with, because it's going to happen. It's not a matter of if, but when." Shares of Apple fell. The company unveiled a new Apple TV that will come with apps, along a voice controlled remote control. It also debuted new iPhones and a larger tablet, the iPad Pro. Netflix ended its seven-day losing streak. Shares of the video streaming company soared after it said it'll launch in South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan next year. Barnes & Noble shares nose-dived. The book retailer's sales fell for the fifth straight quarter. Shares of Dave & Buster's Entertainment rallied one day after the arcade and restaurant operator reported a surge in quarterly same-store sales and profit that beat expectations.
