VirnetX win in Apple case should help in signing licenses, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Robert Stone said the jury award in favor of VirnetX (VHC) in its patent fight with Apple (AAPL) should aid the company in signing licenses with others. Stone, who thinks talks have been underway with Android OEMs and infrastructure players and expects that the "first couple of contracts" could be signed in the coming months, keeps an Outperform rating and $36 price target on VirnetX shares.

Pacific Crest cuts Fitbit to sell, sees share downside to $11
Pacific Crest analyst Brad Erickson downgraded Fitbit (FIT) to Underweight from Sector Weight after his channel checks indicated that Charge 2, the company's flagship holiday product, is off to a slow start. Underweight is Pacific Crest's equivalent of a sell rating. Charge 2 inventory is accumulating in the channel and sell-through is below initial Blaze/Alta levels, Erickson tells investors in a research note. The analyst continues to believe that a large portion of Fitbit owners stop using the device within months. Further, he views the corporate wellness deal between Aetna (AET) and Apple (AAPL) as a "substantial negative" for Fitbit. Erickson sees downside to $11 for shares of Fitbit. The stock closed yesterday up 17c to $16.70.

Barclays removes Apple as Top Pick after trimming global smartphone forecast
Barclays analyst Mark Moskowitz removed the firm's Top Pick designation on Apple (AAPL) shares after the firm trimmed its 2016 smartphone revenue and unit growth estimates, saying that the firm's research is not pointing to any major improvement in smartphone units beyond initial channel fill for the new iPhones and Samsung (SSNLF) Galaxy products. The firm now estimates a decline of 2.9% in smartphone revenue and growth of 2.6% in smartphone units, versus its prior forecast for a revenue decline of 0.7% and unit growth of 3.7% in 2016. Moskowitz, who thinks Apple shares may see near-term choppiness after their recent run-up, keeps an Overweight rating on the stock but lowered his price target to $114 from $115.

Western Digital is a new Top Pick in IT Hardware at Barclays
Barclays analyst Mark Moskowitz recommends investors build positions in Western Digital (WDC) and named it his new Top Pick in IT Hardware, removing Apple (AAPL). Western Digital issued a positive September quarter financial update citing a favorable mix in both HDD and SSD, and particularly good pricing conditions in NAND flash, the analyst wrote. Moskowitz believes the company's commentary is positive for investor sentiment and added it to the top spot given improving end markets, reduced industry manufacturing capacity, and potential for further operational synergies. He recommends investors build or add positions in Western Digital as gross margins should trend upward in the near- to mid-term. Moskowitz rates Western Digital an Overweight with a $61 price target on shares.

Apple price target raised to $130 from $120 at Citi
Citi analyst Jim Suva raised his price target for Apple shares to $130 from $120 and keeps a Buy rating on the name. The stock closed yesterday down $1.77 to $112.18. U.S., Canada, European and Asian store checks indicate iPhone 7 demand at launch appears strong, Suva tells investors in a research note. Supply remains a limiting factor with many stores having received very limited supply of the iPhone 7 and in some cases only to suffice demand from preorders, the analyst adds. Suva raised his iPhone estimate for the December quarter to 79.4M units, above the consensus of 75M units.
