Automaker General Motors Co. (GM: Quote, GM.TO) is recalling 18,204 imported sport utility vehicles in China due to their anti-lock breaking systems that may cause a safety hazard, according to statement on the website of the nation's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.

The recall affects 16,618 Chevrolet Captiva vehicles and 1,586 Opel Antara vehicles built between April 11, 2006 and November 9, 2009.

The anti-lock breaking systems of these vehicles may have difficulty in functioning normally due to brake fluid impurities, the statement added.

GM closed on Wednesday at $24.88, up $0.30 from the previous close, on 6.89 million shares.

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand on Thursday raised its Official Cash Rate by 25 basis points, to 3.00 percent from 2.75 percent. The decision was in line with expectations, and it marks the second straight month with a rate hike following 24 straight meetings in which the rate was not changed. New Zealand's economic expansion has considerable momentum, with GDP estimated to have grown by 3.5 percent in the year to March. Apple Inc. said Wednesday after the markets closed that its second quarter profit rose 7% from last year, as sales surged and margins improved amid strong sales of its iPhones. The company's quarterly earnings per share also came in above analysts' expectations as did its quarterly revenue. At the same time, the company gave a slightly downbeat revenue forecast for the current quarter. Stocks moved mostly lower during trading on Wednesday, giving back some ground after trending higher over the past several sessions. Selling pressure was relatively subdued, however, limiting the downside for the markets. The major averages all closed in the red, although the tech-heavy Nasdaq underperformed its counterparts by a wide margin.
