Apple’s Cyber Monday: What the analysts are saying as they raise their AAPL price targets

“Some Apple analysts didn’t wait for stores to open on Cyber Monday before weighing in on early reports that iPad sales were leading the 2013 holiday buying frenzy,” Philip Elmer-DeWitt reports for Fortune.

“After spot-checking Black Friday weekend sales, Deutsche Bank’s Chris Whitmore raised his price target to $625 from $575,” P.E.D. reports. “Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster was counting heads and tweets over the weekend.

  1. Why does Apple have that one analyst Zabitsky who keeps Apple’s target price at $270 no matter what. It’s been like that for two years already. Why don’t they simply throw that analyst out because it clear he’s not doing any job at all if his target price never moves. I don’t know if it means anything or not but I’m just asking what’s the point. He seems to be only stating his opinion which couldn’t possibly be based on analysis since Apple’s business and financial management is in constant flux. His target price was set before buybacks and dividend offering and yet he sees no change forthcoming. It doesn’t make any sense.
