Apple claws its way back over $100

“As Apple shares rose above $100 a short while ago for the first time since Thursday of last week, Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray took to CNBC’s ‘Fast Money: Halftime Report,’ to chat with host Scott Wapner and the gang about the note he put out late yesterday pounding the table for the stock,” Tiernan Ray reports for Barron’s.

“As Munster told Wapner, “There are periods we think are unique opportunities” for a given stock,” Ray reports. “Such is the case right now for Apple, he argued, given Apple’s “valuation on a 10-year basis is near a historical low.”

“Said Munster, people have sat on their hands because they’re scared,” Ray reports. “‘I’ve spent the past week meeting with investors. It is clear they are handcuffed going into the call [Apple reports earnings Tuesday, January 26th]. They are afraid there is going to be some sort of massive reset, they are waiting for the June quarter numbers [for iPhone] to come down based on the March guide.'”

“Munster was also peppered with questions about a potential automobile offering, some day, from Apple,” Ray reports. “He was upbeat about the sheer size of autos, arguing that ‘If they can replicate the success of BMW, a couple million units a year, that would add $135 billion in revenue, and on $260 billion in revenue annually, that’s meaningful.'”

  1. I sincerely hope Apple inc. make a damn great electric steamroller and lay all the analysts, CNBC anchors in a line and ask them for their latest “wise” prognestations on AAPL and then let the Apple inc. steamroller decide what next???!!

  2. I like how analyst say the Mac is a niche device. While a mac. Lasts 3-7 years and Microsoft PC only last 1-3 years. In 3 years, there is going to be a lot of renewed Mac sales.

  3. With AAPL hovering @ $100+-, buy it for dividends, better than banks, money market or any cash/interests
    Investments or deposits. Sure there’s other stocks that pays more dividend, but AAPL is better play going forward in comparison and security. With all those cash on hand, there’s no reason for the dividends to stay this low. Pretty soon, AAPL will pay 2.5% then 3% then more . It’s the board playing cheapo right now.

  4. If any other stock surges over 5% in one trading day, we call it a *surge*.

    When the company with the worlds largest market cap increases by that much (adding well over $25 billion in just hours), I’d call it more than a surge.

    No way one could call this is a dinky little “clawing back to…”
