Apple Inc, Dell, Anadarko, Coinstar, Equinix Stock Prices Climb to New Heights

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL): Apple and China Mobile (NYSE:CHL) have confirmed that iPhone 4S users in China are suffering from comparability issues with the use of a China Mobile SIM card, making some users lose signal and others unable to receive calls despite having a full signal, reported The Next Web. A report says Apple is working to release a fix. The shares closed at $468.83, up $4.86 or 1.05% on the day. They have traded in a 52-week range of $310.50 to $464.98.

Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL): Global IT spending increased 5% in 2011, according to Cnet, which cited an IDC report that was released yesterday. At the start of February, Dell Services and Atos announced a significant offering of IT outsourcing services that will provide a standardized cloud-based IT infrastructure and global support solution for Wolters Kluwer customers in the legal, tax, finance and healthcare industries. The shares closed at $17.83, up $0.18 or 1.02% on the day. They have traded in a 52-week range of $13.29 to $17.88.

A comparison to a decade ago, when gas contributed 17.9% versus 49.8% from coal, further underscores the way in which cheap natural gas continues to pressure coal use and, by extension, coal miners.
