Halftime Report

  • Jay Yarow, The Business Insider, and Steve Milunovich, UBS, discuss whether Tim Cook is to blame for Apple's drop in growth. I think it's pretty clear they missed the big phone market and overestimated the success of the plastic 5C phone, says Milunovich.

  • CNBC's Eamon Javers reports on Bill Ackman's stake in Allergan. Javers says this is a classic case of insider trading that is not against the rules.
