Tim Cook Defends iPhone 5C, Agilent Tech Plans a Spinoff, and 3 More Hot Stocks

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL): Tim Cook weighed in to defend the iPhone 5C’s higher-than-anticipated pricing scheme, noting that Apple “never had an objective to sell a low-cost phone,” he told Bloomberg Businessweek. ”There’s always a large junk part of the market … We’re not in the junk business.” However, as Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android accounts for roughly 79 percent of the market (per IDC data), analysts are skeptical that the 5C’s high price will help Apple win back the share it’s given up.
