The list includes "The Shining" from 1980, made famous by Jack Nicholson turning into a homicidal maniac.

Amazon.com Inc's (NASDAQ:AMZN) stock has retreated since scaling a value of $1 trillion in September and it may be time to buy the dip on the world's biggest retailer, a fund manager said in a report by Forbes.

Wayne Himelsein said the trend in the month so far is that in nine of the 14 trading days, the stock was had been down so the trend should be a friend of the investor.

The CEO of Alphabet Inc's Google (NASDAQ:GOOG), Sundar Pichai, said the search giant does not "bias our products to favor any political agenda," a report in Mashable said.

"Recent news stories reference an internal email to suggest that we would compromise the integrity of our Sear results for a political end. This is absolutely false," said Pichai.

Google has come under fire from the Trump administration to regulators in Europe, where it is embroiled in controversy over the "right to be forgotten."

Google shares were up 0.3% to $1,169.50.

Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) is estimated to make around $134 more profit per phone on the 512 GB models of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, than the 64 GB base models, a report by 9 to 5 Mac said.

Apple charges a $350 premium for the 512 GB model, but the report claims that the jump in storage only costs Apple $132 in memory component costs. It said the higher-priced 512 GB tier means that Apple is making more money than ever on the highest-end models.

Higher-storage options are easy ways for Apple to push the profitability of its devices and it’s a tactic the company has exploited for many years. With the 2018 line, it has pushed even further down that path.

Apple stock rose 1.08% to $220.02.
