Apple passes Microsoft into 1st place on list of largest U.S. companiesShares of Apple Inc. rose 0.2% in morning trading Wednesday, enough for the technology giant to leapfrog Microsoft Corp. into first place on the list of largest U.S. companies by market capitalization, for the first time in three months. Apple's stock price rose 65 cents, which raised Apple's market cap by $2.82 billion to $1.376 trillion. Meanwhile, shares of Microsoft fell $2.68, or 1.5%, to lower the software and cloud giant's market cap down by $20.32 billion to $1.357 trillion. The last time Apple was the largest company by market cap was March 18, when it ended the day at $1.081 trillion versus Microsoft's $1.069 trillion. Meanwhile, Apple and Microsoft remained well ahead of third-place Amazon.com Inc. , which stock fell $48.23, or 2.0%, to lower the e-commerce giant's market cap (498,776,032) by $24.06 billion to $1.184 trillion.

Apple gets two price target boosts as store reopenings are a 'sign of improving trends'Deutsche Bank analyst Jeriel Ong raised his price target on Apple Inc.'s stock to $320 from $305 Wednesday, writing of increased optimism now that Apple plans to reopen dozens of U.S. stores. The company announced in mid-March that it would be temporarily closing all of its stores outside China due to the pandemic. "We see store reopenings as a directional sign of improving trends and a drift toward a more normalized demand environment for Apple," Ong wrote. "While high unemployment and smaller consumer pockets have us worried for the next-gen iPhone launch that typically comes in September/October, we continue to tilt bullish on Apple. He has a buy rating on the stock. Jefferies analyst Kyle McNealy also boosted his Apple price target, to $370 from $350, arguing that Apple seems to be seeing "strong growth through online channels" since the COVID-19 crisis began. "We see Street iPhone expectations as conservative for the June quarter and they don't fully appreciate strength from online channels and the launch of the iPhone SE as positive offsets to brick-and-mortar declines," he wrote, while maintaining a buy rating. Apple shares are up 0.3% in premarket trading Wednesday. They've added 16% over the past three months, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average has lost 3%.

Apple is reopening certain stores in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin. Some stores will only be open for curbside pickup or storefront service, while others will allow for walk-in customer visits. "We are committed to reopening our stores in a very thoughtful manner with the health and safety of our customers and teams as our top priority, and we look forward to seeing our customers again soon," an Apple spokesman said in a statement. Apple was one of the first retailers to announce it would be closing stores outside of China when it made that decision in mid March.

Coronavirus pressures could prompt 14% drop in device shipments this year, says GartnerWorldwide shipments of personal computers, tablets, and mobile phones are expected to drop 13.6% this year to 1.9 billion units, according to a new forecast from Gartner analysts. They expect a 10.5% decline in PC shipments over the course of 2020, a decline that they said could have been "much worse" if not for government lockdowns that drove demand for equipment that would allow people to work and study from home. The Gartner analysts predict a 14.6% fall in mobile phone shipments and a 13.7% decline in smartphone shipments that could help extend the average phone lifetime to 2.7 years in 2020 from 2.5 years in 2018. They project that "only" 11% of mobile phone shipments this year will be 5G devices. "In 2020, affordable 5G phones were expected to be the catalyst to increase phone replacements, but it will not be the case" the analysts said in a release. Apple Inc. is expected to launch its first 5G devices later this year.

Tom Hanks' upcoming WWII movie to debut on Apple TV+Apple Inc.'s streaming service, Apple TV+, has won a bidding war for the upcoming Tom Hanks movie which had been set for release on Father's Day before the coronavirus pandemic shut movie theaters. The World War II movie stars Hanks as a ship captain leading an Allied convoy that's under pursuit by German submarines. The Sony Pictures film was originally scheduled for theatrical release on May 8, then was pushed back to June 12, but those plans had to be scrubbed as well. Apple TV+ did not say when the movie would debut, but it will be the largest movie release by Apple TV+ to date, launching in more than 100 countries. Apple paid about $70 million for the film, topping rival streaming networks. Hanks has an existing relationship with Apple TV+, which will produce the third installment of the "Band of Brothers" miniseries franchise, from Hanks and Steven Spielberg. Earlier Tuesday, Apple TV+ has been in talks to license older TV shows and movies to bolster its streaming lineup.

Apple has been acquiring some older shows to help bulk up Apple TV+ library: reportApple Inc. has been in talks about licensing older TV and movie content as it looks to bulk up its Apple TV+ library, . The report, which cites multiple anonymous sources, said that Apple has also acquired some shows and movies, though it "hasn't yet acquired any huge franchises or blockbusters for its back catalog." The move comes as the company is trying to compete with Netflix Inc. , Walt Disney Co.'s Disney+, and other streaming rivals that have sizable arsenals of older content in addition to new original programming. Apple launched its TV+ service in November and charges $4.99 a month for the service, though it has been offering a year of the service for free to customers who purchase Apple hardware devices like iPhones, Macs, and iPads. The company didn't immediate respond to MarketWatch's request for comment. Apple shares are up 0.9% in Tuesday trading. They've lost 2.3% over the past three months as the Dow Jones Industrial Average , of which Apple is a component, has shed 16%.
