The Chinese economy logged its weakest expansion since early 2009 in the third quarter as slowdown in investment, particularly in the property sector, continued to drag the recovery. Gross domestic product grew 7.3 percent in the third quarter from a year ago, slower than the 7.5 percent expansion seen a quarter ago, the National Bureau of Statistics reported Tuesday. Apple Inc. said Monday that its fourth quarter profit rose 13% from last year, driven by strong sales of its iPhones and Mac computers. The company's quarterly earnings per share also came in above analysts' expectations as did its quarterly sales. At the same time, the company gave an upbeat revenue forecast for the current quarter, which includes the all important holiday season. Stocks moved notably higher over the course of the trading day on Monday, extending the strong upward move seen last Friday. The gains on the day continued the recent recovery by the markets, with the Nasdaq and the S&P 500 closing higher for the third consecutive session.
