What Blair expects when:
1.“Payment Platform. Tim Cook has stated that the mobile payments space is intriguing and several patents filed by Apple have pointed to its potential. We see the biggest clue in Touch ID … this fall, we expect Touch ID to be built into ALL of the new iPhones and iPads. Either ahead of or shortly after the rollout of Touch ID across the next wave of iOS devices, we believe Apple will introduce its payment platform.
2. iWatch or iBand moved from potential to reality in January with our belief that the Asia supply chain was gearing up … in the September time frame. We expect Apple to release a wrist-worn computing device with a curved screen that will tie-in notifications, activity tracking, and fitness/health monitoring into a platform [where] developers can create new applications.
3. iTV. We see Apple ultimately launching a large panel, 4K television with Apple TV functionality and iOS-like applications integrated into the television. The coming 4 migration to 4K/Ultra-HD content, we believe, will provide Apple with a window …
4. The Big Screen iPhone 6. We expect Apple to offer a 4.8-inch iPhone option this Fall addressing a product gap that we will drive strong adoption, particularly in Asia and at new carrier partner China Mobile.
5.iPad Convertible or a new MacBook Air. … We believe Apple has been testing 12-inch panels for a potential new productThis product could be shown at WWDC.”

Foxconn to land 90 million iPhone 6 orders, says paper
Commercial Times, March 6; Steve Shen, DIGITIMES [Thursday 6 March 2014]
Foxconn Electronics is expected to land orders for 90 million units of the iPhone 6 from Apple in 2014, the Chinese-language Commercial Times cited data from Citigroup Global Markets as indicating.
Buoyed by shipments of iPhone 6, Apple's smartphone shipments are expected to rise 23% in 2014 compared to 13% growth posted a year earlier, the paper quoted Wei Chen, an analyst at Citigroup Global Markets, as saying.
However, the growth rate of global smartphone shipments is expected to slow to 28% in 2014 compared to 40% in 2013, while sales of smartphones in mature markets are likely to edge up only 4%, down from 5% a year ago, Chen added.

Enterprise Value is a measure of a company's worth. Think of it as the theoretical takeover price of the company. It is defined as:
Enterprise Value = Market Capitalization + Total Debt - Total Cash and Cash equivalentsAs can be clearly seen from the above table, Google is trading at an enterprise value of more than $22 billion in comparison to Apple. Comparison of Free Cash Flow (FCF)
Free Cash Flow is a measure of how much cash a business generates after accounting for capital expenditures such as buildings or equipment. FCF is essentially the money that the company could return to shareholders if the company was to grow no further.Apple's FCF has increased at annual growth rate of more than 30% compounded annually (from $10.76 billion in 2009 to $44.24 billion in 2013). On the other hand, Google's FCF has increased at a growth rate of about 6% compounded annually (from $8.50 billion to $11.30 billion) over the past 5 years. Considering Google's peak FCF of $13.35 billion (ttm to December 31, 2012), the growth rate is still a modest 10% compounded annually.Importantly, the FCF growth at Apple has closely tracked its revenue and net income growth, each of which have also grown at 30% compounded annually (revenue has increased from $46.71 billion to $173.99 billion, where as its net income has increased from $9.36 billion to $37.03 billion). However, for Google, the FCF growth has lagged both the revenue growth (at 20%) and the net income growth (at 15%).
Russia's Megafon to buy 750,000 iPhones in 3 yearsReuters 4 minutes ago
0 shares Content preferences Done MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's second-biggest mobile phone operator, Megafon, said it would buy at least 750,000 iPhones from Apple Inc over the next three years for resale through its retail network.
Megafon signed an agreement with Apple's Russian subsidiary in January, returning to a direct partnership with the U.S. company after a break of several years, but did not disclose the contract terms at the time.
Apart from guaranteeing purchases, the Russian company also committed to spending around 1 billion rubles ($28 million) on marketing, advertising and promotion of Apple smartphones over the three-year period to the end of 2016, it said in a 2013 financial report released on Wednesday.
Sergei Libin, an analyst at Raiffeisen Research, said the volumes agreed by Megafon and Apple were reasonable.
"Based on MTS' estimates, in the fourth quarter alone around 650,000 iPhones were sold in Russia. If the smartphones sales' dynamics and iPhone's share of this market do not change dramatically, around 8 million iPhones could be sold in Russia during the next three years, and Megafon's share will be just over 9 percent ... I would not say it could sell much more than this," said Libin.
Rival Vimpelcom, which signed a direct contract with Apple last year, declined to comment on its terms. MTS has been buying iPhones from distributors and is currently negotiating a deal with Apple.
"At the moment, we are discussing the terms of cooperation that would be acceptable for both sides," MTS' spokesman said on Wednesday.
Apple had a 20 percent share of a more than $5 billion Russian smartphones market in money terms, or 9 percent of units sold in 2013, according to cellphone retailer Euroset. Apple also sells in Russia through its online store and electronics retailers.
