10:04 EDTORCL, GOOG, AAPL, IBM, NOK, MSFT, SNEFitch says Apple rating would likely fall in high single 'A' category
Fitch Ratings said it has not released a public rating on Apple (AAPL); such a rating would likely fall in the high single 'A' rating category. Fitch said, "We rate a handful of U.S. technology companies in the high 'A' or double 'A' range with a Stable Outlook, including Microsoft (MSFT) at AA+, IBM (IBM) at A+, and Oracle (ORCL) at A+. All three of these companies benefit from substantial recurring revenue from enterprise software and/or long-term IT services contracts, which typically carry high switching costs...For ratings in the 'AA' category, we would insist on higher visibility and a longer time horizon regarding the sustainability of a company's business model...Consumer product companies such as Sony (SNE), Nokia (NOK), and Motorola Mobility (GOOG) have proven the risks related to ever-changing consumer tastes, low switching costs, and a highly competitive environment. Each has historically had a dominant market position and strong financial metrics, only to falter over a relatively short period of time. Apple's better diversification and the stickiness of its iTunes ecosystem clearly make it a stronger credit that would likely be at the highest end of the 'A' category."

Apple has agreed to pay for all the music carried on its new streaming music service during free trials, reports the Financial Times. The company signaled the climbdown after singer Taylor Sift released an open letter Sunday that denounced Apple Music as "shocking" and "disappointing.", adding that her views were shared by "every artist, writer and producer" in her social circles. The company will now pay for the music it streams during free trials, though it would pay less for each stream than it will when a user has taken a full subscription. Reference Link
