Eurozone economy likely

to keep shrinking in '13

The European Union predicted Friday that the economy of the 17 member countries that use the euro will shrink again in 2013 even though it will see its fortunes improve in the second half of the year.

In its winter forecast, the EU Commission said the eurozone is likely to shrink 0.3 percent more this year, in contrast to November's prediction of 0.1 percent growth.

The debt crisis and the associated belt-tightening are weighing on activity. Official figures show that the eurozone contracted 0.6 percent in the final quarter of 2012 from the previous three months.

The eurozone has been in recession -- officially defined as two consecutive quarters of negative growth -- since the second quarter of 2012 amid acute concerns about its future.

Judge says Apple can't

bundle changes for vote

A federal judge ruled Friday that Apple was wrong to bundle four amendments to its corporate charter into one proposal for a vote set for Wednesday's annual meeting. Shareholders should get to vote on the amendments separately, he said.

Greenlight Capital, a hedge fund run by Wall Street maverick David Einhorn, sued Apple over the proposal because it would remove the board's ability to issue preferred stock without shareholder authorization.

Einhorn wants Apple to issue "iPrefs," preferred shares with a guaranteed dividend, as a way of committing the company to sharing its cash hoard with shareholders.
