The stock was trading up about 0.1% just before the reports of the court’s decision surfaced, and had been up as much as 0.9% at an intraday high of $155.48 earlier in the session, then fell as much as 3.5% to a low of $148.70 before bouncing slightly.

Apple’s stock has lost 4.4% amid a three-day losing streak since it closed at a record $156.69 on Sept. 7. It has run up 18.8% over the past three months while the Dow has gained 1.0%.
