Apple's iPhone 5s remains 'by far the top selling smartphone'

Apple continues to dominate smartphone sales with their flagship iPhone 5s and mid-range iPhone 5c as the handsets took two of the top three sales slots at every major U.S. wireless carrier for the third month in a row.

The Cupertino, Calif.-based company remained America's top smartphone vendor in November on the back of 'strong' iPhone 5s sales and 'steady' iPhone 5c sales, according to data cited by Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley in a Thursday note to investors. Samsung notched a second-place finish in an industry that has seen major sales consolidation throughout the fourth quarter.
Before the iPhone 5s and 5c's release, Apple, Samsung, HTC, Nokia, Sony, and Motorola all had handsets enjoying top-three sales at at least one of America's big four carriers. Apple's September announcement pushed all but Samsung out of the picture and relegated the South Korean conglomerate's Galaxy S4 to the runner-up position across the board.
Apple has maintained a significant edge outside of the U.S. as well, even before the long-anticipated launch of the company's devices on China Mobile, the world's largest wireless carrier. The iPhone 5s was "by far the top selling smartphone...at most channels where the smartphone launched globally," Walkley notes.
The sales data also points to a strong showing for Apple's iPad in November. Canaccord's surveys "indicated strong Black Friday weekend iPad Air and new iPad mini sales...essentially at all channels where the iPads were available," a finding corroborated by previous analytics data that showed a boost of more than 50 percent for the new 9.7-inch tablet.
Walkley raised the bank's price target on Apple shares from $580 to $600 and revised shipment estimates for the iPhone upward to 54 million units in the first quarter of the company's 2014 fiscal year and 186 million units for the entire year.
No one bad news today all but good yet the stock is sold for 100 shares blocks conducted by WS criminals. SA showed the crime on graphs and idiots play into their hands buying calls. The SEC is worthless in controliing this crime
Let them to talk among themselves they deserve each other
It will be raised again next mont after Q1 results that will be a blow out. Analysts will run one on each other to raise prices,.
Apple price target raised to $600 from at Canaccord
Canaccord raised Buy rated Apple estimates following recent survey results that indicate strong iPhone 5s sales, improved supply levels for all color SKUs, and the upcoming China Mobile launch.
and we are down WHY? Criminal bastar***s
This is so frustrating every week the same b***S and the SEC couldn't care less. Posted earlier a SA article about the proof of stock manipulation starting every Wed till Friday pin
Oh shut up. You are pathetic antisemitic worthless person
AAPL stock price routinely jumps on Mondays and falls by Fridays' closings. A paired statistical test comparing Monday and Friday closes shows that mean 80 bps difference between Monday and Friday price changes is highly significant at an incredible P value of 0.0005, which means this distribution would occur by chance only 5 times in 10,000. By contrast, the comparable test for the SPY data returns a probability of 0.43, telling us, as expected, that day-to-day change levels are essentially random. (Note: None of this says anything about price trends over time; it's simply about within-week patterns of price fluctuations.)
Indeed, one could have made a tidy profit over the last few years simply buying 100 AAPL shares at the end-of-the-week close and selling them at the beginning of the following week's open. Not that I'm suggesting this as a viable strategy, mind you, but I did run up the chart below illustrating this model in its crudest implementation. It does, I believe, effectively demonstrate the strength of the end-of-the-week effect on AAPL's share price. Again, I'm not proposing a trading strategy here, simply using it so show how skewed the weekly returns are for AAPL.
Circumstantial evidence, at best, but it seems unlikely that this pattern could have nothing to do with prices being manipulated as the weekly options expirations draw near. But, such is a fact of life for the AAPL investor.
Maybe It Is A Manipulated Stock, So What? I'm Overweight Apple For 2014.

Disclosure: I am long AAPL. (More...)
So much has been and continues to be written about Apple (AAPL) here that it seems that there's not much that could be added to the discussion. But the fact is that Apple could be the smartest buy you could make now for 2014. It has everything going for it as anyone even paying marginal attention knows: Valuations are terrific even with a 40% run up since the end of June. The company is awash in cash. The buyback program should have a marked impact on EPS as the company has been buying shares at bargain prices throughout 2013. The long awaited China Mobile (CHL) deal appears to be a done deal. Consumers have received the latest phone introductions with excitement and holiday sales will certainly be excellent. We can expect new iPad introductions early in 2014, probably a larger screen version that can further blur the boundaries between the tablet and the notebook.What explains this extreme pattern of day of the week price change?
Of course, AAPL may also be the most heavily manipulated stock in the market. Here's a chart showing average daily closing price changes for AAPL by day of the week for the past 2 years. I've used SPY for a convenient comparison as an example of a stock that even the biggest of the big-money players would have a difficult time manipulating.
