09:19 EDTAAPLApple price target raised to $180 from $160 at Cantor
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Brian White raised his price target on Apple shares to $180 from $160, which equates to a $1 trillion market capitalization. He believes the market will reward the tech giant with a higher price-to-earnings multiple given media reports of new areas of future innovation, the company’s entrance into a new product category with next month's watch launch, and its commitment to returning cash to shareholders. White thinks a web TV service, as reported last week by the Wall Street Journal, could be a "stepping stone" for Apple to eventually launch a full blown TV product. He adds that Apple's iPhone portfolio and position in China have "never been stronger." White keeps a Buy rating on the stock. Apple shares closed Friday at $125.90.

08:13 EDTAAPLPendrell unit: Court rejects attempts to limit scope of DRM patents
ContentGuard Holdings, a subsidiary of Pendrell Corporation (PCO), announced that on Friday, March 20, Judge J. Rodney Gilstrap of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas issued a 144 page Claim Construction Order in lawsuits ContentGuard filed against several companies who continue to use its patented Digital Rights Management solutions without a license, including Apple (AAPL), Amazon.com (AMZN), DirecTV (DTV), Google (GOOG), HTC, Huawei, Motorola Mobility and Samsung Electronics (SSNLF). In his order, Judge Gilstrap interpreted the language in ContentGuard’s patents in a manner that fully preserves the breadth of ContentGuard’s patented Digital Rights Management technologies. These technologies were developed to enable the distribution of digital media over the Internet and other networks, including cellular and satellite networks, and provide innovative solutions to problems that were once thought to be unsolvable. “We are very pleased with the Court’s ruling,” commented James Baker, ContentGuard’s Vice President for Licensing and Strategic Development. “We believe these claim constructions demonstrate that the online stores defendants provide for buying and renting DRM-protected movies, videos, books, and music and devices that play, run, display or print this DRM-protected content infringe ContentGuard’s pioneering DRM patents.”
