    Harman International Industries (HAR +3.6%) is one of the S&P 500's big gainers today, boosted by an upgrade to Outperform at Baird. The firm notes a jump in contracts with major auto makers including Toyota (TM) and BMW, which should drive high single-digit sales growth through 2015 and help to offset the potential for competition from an increase in smartphone usage. Harman however, doesn't see those devices as a threat.

    Audio hardware maker Harman (HAR -4.8%) sells off for the second day in a row due to concerns about the impact of Apple's (AAPL) just-announced partnerships with several top automakers to integrate Siri with their in-vehicle electronics. A feature called "Eyes Free" will allow drivers to activate Siri with the press of a button on the steering wheel, and could lead to some car buyers opting for the automakers' audio systems instead of Harman's.
