  1. $139??? These people are crazy! That’s an extremely aggressive price target.

    The stock is at $75 and they’re saying it will double in 12 months? What possible info justifies such a possible massive share price increase?

    I call this insane spculation. Even if an iphone is released, it may not be a breakthrough product like the ipod. And if it holds mp3s it will take sales away from the ipod.

  2. If Wall Street analysts ever get around to looking at Apple’s nearly complete failure at the high calling of customer care, look out!

    Their pricing for extended warranties would suggest they are ready to help – then, you call and find out that you know more than the ‘customer care’ rep on the other end of the phone line.

    Crashes, software problems, faulty hardware – worse than it’s ever been!

    Prediction: share price will soon reflect this travesty.

  3. For “Outrageous”:

    Your reaction to this item, then, should be a very simple one. DON’T BUY THE DAMNED STOCK! Why get in a huff when YOUR opinion is clearly superior to that of StockTargets, Inc.? Jeez, just say “Phhhttt” to those guys and go back to bed!

    Actually, the only reason you should react like this to the StockTargets, Inc. prediction is that you’re WAY short on AAPL. ARE YOU? (If so, hemlock is the appropriate celebratory beverage, I believe.)

  4. Peterson is, in fact, “Stock) Boy” in disguise, ladies and gents. He can no longer show his face on this site after his catastrophically incorrect predictions that AAPL would be in the high 40’s right now, hence the modified “nom de net.”

    Just ignore him, good people, and watch AAPL rocket up this coming year. I can ALMOST guarantee you that MonkeySoft’s latest debacle (“Vista”) will not ship until the second half of 2007 (perhaps even later if Europe has anything to say about it), so watch what “Leopard” does to that part of the bottom line in the coming four quarters.

    With OS 10.5, the new ViPod, the iPhone–and who knows what else coming to market as well–we will all be reaping whirlwind profits in the next 12 months. Peterson (aka “StockBoy”) is an empty-pocketed fool who sincerely WISHES he had gotten on board at $50 (or earlier) and just can’t handle the financial self-recriminations.

    I’d pity him if he weren’t so VERY amusing.

  5. MDN,

    thankyou for the date of the 4th quarter results.
    I’ve been waiting impatiently for them.
    All indications are that it will be a fantastic quarter for Apple – even when compared to recent record-breaking quarters.

    Let’s see what happens to AAPL the next day, on the 19th.

    I can’t wait!

  6. I am sitting here re-arranging my broker’s statements and smiling as I look at my stock 4 years ago worth roughly an order of magnitude less than it does now. And Apple is now in far better position to compete and dominate in both its old and in new market segments.

    Apple is an incredible business. My money is on the table and in play in AAPL.

  7. “thankyou for the date of the 4th quarter results.

    Well, if everyting goes as it has in the past, Apple will blow away analysts’ expectations, and the stock will then tank anyway.
