  1. The last 2 targets that I heard for Apple were at $264 and $265 from the talking heads. I think it is much higher. The only thing holding the estimates down is the inability to really see the innovations that are easily coming from Apple soon.

  2. If Apple did nothing, Microsoft will collapse under it’s own weight of innovation-less software and cloud computing.

    Apple will pass Microsoft in less than 1 year. Mac Tablet tsunami coming!

  3. I’m not sure who originally offered this up:

    “Shares of Apple Inc. set an all-time closing high of $199.83 on Friday, December 28, 2007. Apple’s all-time high (intraday) stands at $202.96, set on December 27, 2007. Apple’s 52-week low is $78.20, set on January 20, 2009.”

  4. If you calculate the growth in most product categories, high profit margins, new products in the pipeline, and recalculated earnings from the iPhone, the SP will blow past 200 at considerable speed.

  5. Ballmer is nothing omg look at him? and even bill crap is nothing. for all these years they have wasted their money on one simple yet impossible to defeat competitor: Apple and all they do is copy. haha they suck.

  6. Where does “jump” stop and “soar” begin? It seems to me that something has to be up there a while before it’s soaring. But how long is that?

    I’m befuddled.

  7. What a dweeb. AAPL set a 52 week high on 9/23/09 at $188.90. The $186.15 figure quoted is the highest previous close in 52 weeks. Big difference in amount and import. Closing price means nothing, intraday high means everything.

  8. “Indeed, only another 31% and APPL overtakes Microsoft.

    Within 6 months, I’d hazard…”

    Actually that’s a pretty good guess, but it will most likely be right after July earnings report.

    Apple should replace MSFY on the DOW. MSFT has been a boat anchor on the DOW ever since they were included in the index. Apple is much more representative of technology because it has successful products in more areas.
