“According to reports from both RBC Dominion Securities and Piper Jaffray, Apple’s sales of computers — particularly laptops — continue to soar. Piper Jaffray estimates that Mac sales rose more than 40 percent in the final quarter of last year, compared with a year earlier,” Mathew Ingram reports for The Globe and Mail Update.
“RBC Dominion Securities, meanwhile, is even more bullish: The brokerage firm expects Apple’s sales of Mac desktops and notebooks will be up more than 50 percent — and that laptop sales could climb by more than 60 percent. An RBC analyst described the sales as ‘ginormous,'” Ingram reports.
“If RBC’s predictions hold true, it says Apple could increase its share of the U.S. computer market to more than 9.5 percent this year, compared with a little over 7 percent in 2007 and about 5 percent in 2006,” Ingram reports.
