RBC ups Apple price target to $100, sees 'iPhone 6' & new product categories driving growth
By Neil Hughes
Following this week's stock split, RBC Capital Markets sees shares of Apple reaching near-record highs in the second half of 2014, based on the strength of the expected "iPhone 6," as well as hotly anticipated new product categories from the company.Analyst Amit Daryanani issued a note to investors on Thursday, a copy of which was provided to AppleInsider, revealing his new price target of $100 per share of AAPL. That's up from his previous prediction of $96 per share, which itself was $675 prior to the company's 7-for-1 split that took effect on Monday.RBC's new price target would put Apple at a near-all-time-high, as the company's previous record is now $100.30 in post-split trading.
Daryanani said his new target of $100 reflects increased confidence in the upcoming second half of Apple's calendar 2014. In particular, he believes that the company's expected "iPhone 6" could prove to be even more profitable with a higher-end model.Given rumors of two screen sizes of 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches, Daryanani believes that Apple could sell a jumbo-sized iPhone at a starting price of $299 on contract. He also believes that improved iPads will arrive this fall, as Apple has done in recent years, helping to boost hardware sales.
Daryanani is also excited about new product categories, which Apple has pledged to enter into in 2014. In particular, the analyst believes that Apple will release its widely rumored so-called "iWatch" later this year.
He sees an "iWatch" making Apple users more integrated into the company's ecosystem by acting as a health monitoring system, and also increasing communication with other Apple devices.As for a "wild card" prediction, Daryanani said he doesn't expect Apple to release a full-fledged television set this year, but he believes recent reports indicating that Apple is moving its ad-c
Oh shut up this is 2 days news. Irland said already said they did no wrong so shut up
Ireland 'confident' that there is no state aid rule breach
The European Commission has announced that it will open formal State Aid investigations in a number of Member States. This announcement is part of a wider investigation by the European Commission encompassing tax rulings and patent box regimes in a number of member states which has been on-going for some time. In the case of Ireland, our understanding of the particulars of this case is that the Commission is focusing on advance opinions provided to a company a number of years ago which address the calculation of the taxable base of profits of this company. Ireland is confident that there is no state aid rule breach in this case and we will defend all aspects vigorously. However, we understand that the European Commission has a responsibility to investigate potential breaches of state aid rules, so we will continue to do everything we can to ensure that they have the full information they require. We are very confident that we will successfully defend our position as Ireland does not have a statutorily binding tax ruling system. Like other tax administrations in other countries, the Revenue Commissioners, in certain limited circumstances, operate a system of non-binding advance opinions where companies can seek advice on the correct application of the law in their self-assessed tax filings. This morning, the European Commission announced it had opened three investigations to examine whether decisions by tax authorities in Ireland, The Netherlands and Luxembourg with regard to the corporate income tax to be paid by Apple (AAPL), Starbucks (SBUX) and Fiat (FIATY), respectively, comply with the EU rules on state aid.

Apple’s stock, at whatever price, is a real ‘buy’
Insight: Behind the stock-price number, the company’s value is attractive
Today is Split Day for Apple, but the shares aren’t jumping even though they’re more affordable.
But investor sentiment is good , according to a MarketWach poll, with half of responding readers rating the stock a “buy.” Apple AAPL +0.09% opened at $92 today after closing at $646 on Friday, following the 7-for-1 split. The major advantages of the split include more institutional purchasers for the stock, since there will be no arbitrary restriction from buying shares priced over $100. Retail investors also may warm to the stock. After all, buying a round lot of 100 Apple shares now costs less than $10,000. Here’s some advice from Mr. Spock on how to assess whether to buy Apple shares: Be logical. Forget about all the articles you see from Apple fan boys who love the company because they love its products, or Apple haters, who fail to consider the company’s financial success. If your opinion of Apple reflects your love of products that “just work,” or hatred of having less access to the phone’s content and less customization than is possible for users of Google’s GOOG -0.38% Android operating system, you’re just not ready to think clearly about the stock.
For starters, the company has grown its revenue per share for more than 10 years. Very few large-cap companies can say that. But few firms have disrupted the world as Apple has, with its iPhone, iPad and iTunes/iPod. The stock has returned 17% this year, adjusted for the 7-for-1 split. Based on a quarterly payout of 47 cents, the stock has a dividend yield of 2.02%, which is quite something for a tech stock with Apple’s growth record. On a pre-split basis, the shares would be priced at $651.14, which is well below the closing peak of $702.10 in September 2012.
Melisa friend. She had to dig someone to trash aapl. Remind us when Mcgillis was right about aapl ? There's a load boat of analysts that has more credantial then this guy? I don't understand why this guy his allowed to keep is job? Saw Tony S. From Bernstein today or heard Huberty from MS or Steifl Mcgillis ? Who cares another Melisa friend ? Do you get the picture?
