A one-point climb by Apple was enough to put it at a new high of 83 and a five-way tie with Avon, QVC, VistaPrint, and JC Penney, now headed by Apple's former retail VP Ron Johnson.

Amazon tax upheld by state

Amazon's lawsuit against a state of New York law that has online retailers having to collect taxes from residents of a state despite not having a physical office or base in the state has been thrown out of court by a judge on Monday.
