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.

The firm lowered its iPad FY15 unit estimates to 55.8M from 60M but said the next catalyst is in October when the larger screen is launched. For the Apple watch, BofA lowered FY15 unit estimates to 9M from 13M given slightly more conservative views and the tough manufacturing process. Shares are Buy rated with a $140 price target.

08:13 EDTAAPL, GOOG, SSNLFPendrell 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.”

06:03 EDTGEU.S. Multi-Industry sector downgraded to Neutral at Barclays
Barclays downgraded the U.S. Multi-Industry space to Neutral from Overweight saying rising headwinds could limit share upside to mid-single-digit levels in 2015, with only slight improvement in 2016. The firm believes the credit cycle is peaking and views the U.S. Dollar strength along with lower oil prices as headwinds. Concurrent with sector rating change, Barclays downgraded Dover (DOV), Grainger (GWW), Xylem (XYL) and WESCO (WCC) to Equal Weight from Overweight. It also upgraded Tyco (TYC) to Overweight from Equal Weight and Lennox (LII) to Equal Weight from Underweight, calling both defensive names in the space. The firm is also "comfortable" owning General Electric (GE), Honeywell (HON), Sensata (ST) and HD Supply (HDS) at current levels. It prefers waiting for pullbacks to buy shares of 3M (MMM).
