“I’ll make this simple. Apple (AAPL) is 2008’s best stock because it wallops rival electronics retailers in generating sales per square foot,” Tim Beyers writes for The Motley Fool.
“With just 1.5 million square feet, spread out across roughly 200 stores around the globe, Apple — the 30-year-old Mac daddy — is but a baby when it comes to retailing,” Beyers writes. “Not for long, though. That 4-T black turtleneck you bought little Stevie for Christmas is already ripping at the seams. Apple plans 40 new stores in 2008, many of which will be planted overseas. Mexico, too, if the rumors are true.”
Beyers looks at Apple’s various products to see if 2008 will usher in the phrases, “Apple: Netflix killer,” “Apple: Palm killer,” and “Apple: Windows killer.”
“Apple is disrupting every business it enters, and in most cases, doing so successfully. Think about how extraordinary that is. All Microsoft had to do was disrupt the PC business once to unleash billions in market value,” Beyers writes.
“How much more will Apple unleash when it disrupts two? Three? Four? You get the picture. Apple, like so many rebel stocks before it, is a misunderstood multibagger in the making. $200 a share is just the beginning,” Beyers writes.
