3. -- U.S. stocks  on Thursday declined with the  S&P 500  down 0.71% to 1,930.1, following its  biggest daily decline in three weeks a day earlier . However, the index is only 1.1% lower than its record-breaking close of 1,951.27 achieved on Monday.

4. -- Intel raised its revenue guidance for the second quarter to $13.4 billion to $14 billion after saying that sales of computers for businesses have been stronger than expected.

The world's largest chipmaker previously had expected revenue of $12.5 billion to $13.5 billion in the quarter.

The company also said it expects stronger profit margins.

5. -- The group that owns  Univision Communications , the dominant Spanish-language broadcaster in the U.S., have held preliminary discussions in recent weeks with several media companies, including  CBS and  Time Warner , The Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

Univision is controlled by a consortium of investors including billionaire Haim Saban. The owners are seeking more than $20 billion for the company, according to people familiar with the matter, the Journal reported. The group bought Univision for $13.7 billion, including debt, in early 2007. 

6. -- Tesla , the electric carmaker, promised Thursday to give away the company's entire patent portfolio to all comers, as long as they promised not to engage courtroom battles over intellectual property.

"If we clear a path to the creation of compelling electric vehicles, but then lay intellectual property landmines behind us to inhibit others, we are acting in a manner contrary to that goal," CEO Elon Musk wrote in a blog on the company's Web site.

The decision opens the door to more collaboration with Tesla, which already is making electric systems for Daimler and Toyota . Other automakers using Tesla's technology could potentially share the cost of Tesla's charging stations, for example, and more charging stations could entice skeptical buyers to try electric cars.

7. -- Shares of clothing retailer Express soared in after-hours trading on Thursday after Sycamore Partners said it's interested in acquiring the company.

Sycamore said in a regulatory filing that it acquired a 9.9% stake in Express.
