Another French Probe for Apple, J.C. Penney Hits 12-Year Lows, and 3 More Hot Stocks

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL): French authorities have opened yet another investigation into Apple’s business practices as the country’s finance ministry begins probing the contracts between Apple and its French carrier partners, AppleInsider reports. However, the new investigations are apparently unrelated to the antitrust probes that France has initiated on Apple in the past; the new probes add to a similar investigation by the European Union.
