    Apple Going Strong.

    Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) seems to release a new product, design, or update every few months. Starting in 2001 Apple has updated its devices (iPhones, iPads, and iPods (except for 2011)) annually. People have become accustomed to this, but Apple is planning to wait a while on the iPhone 6. In 2012 Apple derived 53% of its revenue from iPhones. With the stock recently dropping from around $700/share to currently float around $460-$470/share, many people have concerns for the company. Apple fans should not be worried about the company's new releases--there will be plenty in 2013. Although there is a lot of speculation, Apple could be releasing the new iPhone 5S or a low-cost iPhone in the summer, along with a new iPad 5, iPad Mini 2, and maybe even an iTV in the fall months. The iPhone 6 isn't expected until the summer of 2014. As for shareholders, there shouldn't be much concern. With earnings per share increasing the past five years to the tune of 823%, and revenues increasing 507% in the same time frame, the company appears to be rising. Apple's largest fear should be the expectations others put on them. The company just had its best quarter and yet many people were disappointed with the results. The company shows a P/E of 10.62 and a market cap of nearly half a trillion dollars.
