Why Apple’s stock price will accelerate

HOT Apple Computers + FREE Shipping“Most of us assume that Apple (AAPL) stock has been the darling of Wall Street on its big run over the last few years. The truth is just the opposite,” Jason Schwarz writes for Seeking Alpha. “Apple stock growth is doing a poor job of tracking the actual growth of the company. Such a disconnect creates a buying opportunity on this widely followed but severely misunderstood stock.”

“Apple stock will accelerate into each quarterly earnings release as it tries to keep pace with the company,” Schwarz writes. “Not only do Apple’s competitors struggle to keep up with Steve Jobs, but Apple stock can’t keep up either.”

Schwarz writes, “The P will be racing to keep up with the E in the P/E ratio. The most amazing thing about Apple is that its growth is still accelerating. The next 18 months of earnings look primed to propel Apple to become the largest market cap stock in the world.”

  1. The shorts are @ it again today. ANAL ist will say ANYTHING negative about AAPL to drive it down…… Q2 will be another BLOWOUT! Some people YOU JUST CAN’T REACH! AAPL Long.

  2. “Only fanboyz who have entered the reality distortion field and have taken the koolaid buy Apple products; just a flash in the pan.”
    oopss! Did I say “Flash?”
    Yet another reason why the iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch will fail!

    Feel free to add to this standard “Troll” commentary as you remember their well known lines.

  3. Buy now as:
    * AAPL will be $301 by July 2010 if not Dec 10′
    * AAPL in 2011 will hit $400 bucks
    * Revenue end of FY2010 ~ $59 Billion !!!!
    * iPad and iPhone 4.0 are new 2010 Profits
    * Apple, Inc. = ZERO debts
    * CASH on hand ~ = $44 Billion
    * Mac computers are Selling
    * More new Apple Stores—Expanding China
    * APP’s and iTunes
    * Apple TV commercials every night
    = BUY now below $250 = Opportunity$$$$$

  4. Anyone who knows Apple products and the company , knows that itbwill widen the gap and lead the new media and computing industry for year to come.

    Those that know, know that they know, those that don’t know, don’t know they don’t know.

  6. There is a persistent notion of Apple as a boutique, niche player, that ugly mediocrity must naturally rule the masses, the way big box stores and fast food chains have. Something, maybe Apple’s uniquely functional stylishness, has led investors and analysts to continually misperceive the company. When I was loading up in the single digits, the accepted notion was that Apple was going out of business, even though the company was profitable, had over $1B in the bank, no debt, and producing a steady stream of transcendent products. So often in investing, the talking heads don’t get it, look at the reality.

  7. The sad part is, the overall market is likely to lag as European turmoil spills over into US financials and the looming threat of a commercial real estate bust weighs down the recovery.

    This will act like an anchor to AAPL over the coming months. Look what it’s done just this week.

    Comparing one company’s share price to another’s is like comparing someone’s batting average to another’s quarterback rating.

    unless it’s referenced within price x #of shares (market cap) you cannot really gain an accurate picture of one company’s value vs another’s. Look at Apple’s vs Microsoft’s share price as a perfect example of this.

  9. Macromancer :

    Apple has historically gotten caught and anchored by bad global events (look it up), heck every market crash caught Apple’s breaking news and threw it a curve. Conviction keeps Apple and co. On track as should it anyone who is has any. At the end of the day the computing, software and consumer electronics world would be an awful dull place without Apples contributions and lead…
