April 27 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks were off their lows in early afternoon trading on Wednesday as Apple pared some losses, ahead of a policy decision by the U.S. Federal Reserve.

Apple's shares were down 5.7 percent at $98.44. They had fallen as much as 8.3 percent after the company posted its first revenue decline in over a decade.
