    If not for fiscal cliff fears Apple would be at $900+

    Once it hits the retail shops in China Dec. 14th we are going to see blooming sales revenues and single digit P/E ratios for a very long time imo! No better place to park your money than Apple!

    • At least $900 and if they miss another quarter it could easily go to $5000

    • APPLE INC has improved earnings per share by 23.0% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, APPLE INC increased its bottom line by earning $44.16 versus $27.67 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($49.44 versus $44.16).
      The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has greatly exceeded that of the S&P 500, but is less than that of the Computers & Peripherals industry average. The net income increased by 24.1% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $6,623.00 million to $8,223.00 million.

      Despite its growing revenue, the company underperformed as compared with the industry average of 27.6% Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 27.2%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.

      AAPL has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. Along with the favorable debt-to-equity ratio, the company maintains an adequate quick ratio of 1.24, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.

      Sentiment: Buy
