Procter & Gamble Replaces CEO Bob McDonald: Ahead of the Ticker

Beyond that, A&F warned that same-store sales will likely decline for the rest of the year, resulting in earnings per share of $3.15 to $3.25, below analyst expectations of $3.49.

A federal judge has ruled in favor of Microsoft (MSFT - Get Report) in a patent case brought against the company by Motorola Mobility.

U.S. District Judge James Robart set royalty rates determining what would be a fair amount for Microsoft to pay Motorola Mobility for use of some of its patented technologies.

In the ruling, Microsoft was ordered to pay about a half-cent per unit for video-decoding technology and three and a half cents for wireless technology. According to Microsoft, that equates to about $1.8 million a year.

Motorola Mobility, a subsidiary of Google (GOOG), had originally sought 2.25% of the retail price on Microsoft products. Microsoft said that would amount to the company paying Motorola about $4 billion a year for its use of its wireless and video-decoding technology. Microsoft had said $1.2 million annually would be a more reasonable amount to pay.

The ruling ends the case filed by Motorola Mobility in November 2010.
