Apple Inc.'s stock rose 0.4% in morning trade Wednesday, putting it on an early track to post a fourth-straight gain. That would be the longest win streak for the stock since the five-session stretch of gains ending Sept. 16, 2015. Late Tuesday, both IDC and Gartner reported that Apple was the only major personal computer maker to show year-over-year PC sales growth during an overall dreary holiday shopping season for the industry. Apple shares have gained 4.1% during its current win streak, but are still down 10% over the past three months, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has slipped 3.1%.
