06:34 EDTAAPLPiper's Munster sees mixed reality headset replacing iPhone in 15 years
Recent acquisitions and hires by Apple (AAPL) make it clear the company is working on mixed reality, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster tells investors in a research note. As a starting point, Apple will add virtual reality to the iPhone in the next two years, which should make it easier for third parties to build headsets powered by the device, similar to Samsung's (SSNLF) Gear VR today, Munster writes. He believes Mixed Reality will be a "new computing paradigm" in 10-plus years, allowing the digital world to be "woven into the real world through wearables." The analyst expects Apple to release a mixed reality headset with a 15-plus year goal of replacing the iPhone. Munster has an Overweight rating on Apple with a $172 price target. The iPhone maker closed yesterday up 99c to $95.01.

16:47 EDTAAPLOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Thursday
Stocks had a roller coaster session, moving in a wide range and crossing the flat line several times during the day as the market continues to move in conjunction with the price of oil. Early in the session oil prices met resistance near $34 a barrel and equities were up by triple digits. When the price of crude pulled back, equities followed suit and ultimately turned negative. Oil prices struggled during the afternoon hours and closed down for the day. However, the averages drifted higher into the close and finished in the green. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Labor Department said that productivity fell at an annual rate of 3% in the fourth quarter, marking the biggest quarterly decline in nearly two years and worse than the expected decline of 2%. Labor costs rose 4.5% in the fourth quarter, versus expectations for an increase of 4.3%. Initial jobless claims rose to 285,000 in the week ended January 30, versus expectations for 277,000 first-time claims. Factory orders declined 2.9% in December, versus expectations for them to be down 2.8% for the month. In Europe, the European Commission lowered its 2016 economic growth forecast for the 19-nation single currency area to 1.7% from the 1.8% expansion the commission had forecast in November. The Bank of England also cut its economic growth forecasts, saying it now expects Britain's economy to grow 2.2% this year and 2.3% next year, which is down from the 2.5% growth for 2016 and 2.6% in 2017 that it previously predicted. Additionally, the BoE maintained its bank rate and held the size of its asset purchase program steady. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of GoPro (GPRO) sunk to all-time lows after the action camera maker reported fourth quarter revenue that fell $60M short of expectations and guided first quarter revenue even further below analyst forecasts. The stock fell as low as $9.01 early in the session before ending the day down 8.68% at $9.78. Ambarella (AMBA), a chip supplier that has often traded in tandem with GoPro in the past, gained 5.13% to $39.35, with several analysts highlighting the company's healthy business outside of GoPro... Sumner Redstone stepped down as executive chairman of both CBS (CBS) and Viacom (VIA, VIAB), being replaced by the CEOs of the companies in both cases. CBS shares were up 0.31% after Leslie Moonves was named the next chair of its board, while Class A shares of Viacom were up 2.33% after Philippe Dauman was selected to succeed Redstone... Mattel (MAT) and Hasbro (HAS) gained a respective 1.67% and 1.2% following Bloomberg's report that the two toymakers have held intermittent merger discussions after Hasbro approached its peer late last year. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Cascade Microtech (CSCD), which spiked 32.26% to $20.21 after agreeing to be acquired by FormFactor (FORM) for $16 per share. FormFactor declined 12.61% following the news. Also higher was VirnetX (VHC), which soared 46.14% to $7.00 after being awarded $625.6M in a patent dispute against Apple (AAPL). In addition, GrubHub (GRUB), McGraw Hill (MHFI) and Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD) rose 12.8%, 7.7% and 7.6%, respectively, following their quarterly reports. Among the noteworthy losers were Ralph Lauren (RL) and Kohl's (KSS), which fell a respective 22.2% and 18.8% after reporting quarterly earnings and issuing underwhelming financial outlooks, with the negative signals also dragging down department store operators J.C. Penney (JCP), Macy's (M) and Nordstrom (JWN). Also lower was ConocoPhillips (COP), which declined 8.65% to $35.29 after the oil and gas explorer reported a worse than expected quarterly loss and slashed its dividend to 25c from 74c per share. CEO Ryan Lance said the decision to reduce the dividend was a "difficult one," but the company believes it is prudent to plan for lower commodity prices for a longer period of time. Meanwhile, AstraZeneca (AZN), Credit Suisse (CS) and MetLife (MET) slipped 5.9%, 10.8% and 5.3%, respectively, following their quarterly reports. INDEXES: The Dow rose 79.92, or 0.49%, to 16,416.58, the Nasdaq gained 5.32, or 0.12%, to 4,509.56, and the S&P 500 advanced 2.92, or 0.15%, to 1,915.45.
