Stocks to Watch: Apple, Yahoo!, Facebook

NEW YORK -- Apple (AAPL) holds a media event Tuesday at which it's expected to launch the iPad Mini.

TheStreet will be live-blogging the proceedings from San Jose, Calif.

UBS analyst Steven Milunovich said the product will go a long way to both bringing Apple new customers and keeping the ones it has already. Milunovich has a buy rating on Apple and a $780 price target.

The stock gained 0.4% in trading Monday to close at $636.75.
