"Show me something you hate and I'll show you something you fear."
What is it you fear about Apple Pat? :)

Why do you assume that I "hate" Apple products? Very strange. I have said before they are good tools. However, they are only tools. Don't you agree that making light of Apples apocalyptic style of product releases is not the same as hating on the products?

Apple's stock soars to new all-time high

Shares of Apple set another all-time high on Friday on growing expectations for an upcoming wave of new gadgets.

Apple's (AAPL (http://money.cnn.com/quote/quote.html?symb=AAPL&source=story_quote_link)) stock rose as high as $648.19, besting the previous high set in April, before closing the day just a few cents lower at $648.11. The company's shares blew through a series of record highs in the first four months of the year, but had then been in a funk since May, when Apple reported that its iPhone sales had plateaued.

Apple badly missed Wall Street's sales and profit forecasts (http://money.cnn.com/2012/07/24/technology/apple-earnings/index.htm?iid=EL) last quarter and delivered a weak financial outlook for the current quarter.
But the anticipated September launch (http://www.cnn.com/2012/08/14/tech/mobile/iphone-5-release-date/index.html?iid=EL) of the new iPhone, coupled with rumors of a smaller iPad -- andperpetual Apple TV whispers (http://tech.fortune.cnn.com/2012/05/31/what-did-tim-cook-really-say-about-apples-tv-project/?iid=EL) -- have lifted the stock once again.
Apple is believed to be planning an event for Sept. 12 (http://www.cnn.com/2012/07/31/tech/mobile/iphone-5-release-date/index.html?iid=EL)at which it is likely to unveil its next smartphone. The new iPhone's upgrades are expected to include 4G wireless support and a larger screen.
The iPhone has become by far the largest driver of Apple's success. In quarters that Apple launches an updated smartphone, the company has typically posted record sales and profit. Last year, after Apple launched the iPhone 4S, it had the second-most profitable quarter in U.S. corporate history (http://money.cnn.com/2012/01/24/technology/apple_earnings/index.htm?iid=EL).

What's next for Apple?

As Apple's stock rises, it is approaching another milestone. If shares reach $663.68, Apple will become the most valuable company of all time, eclipsing the record Microsoft set in late 1999, according to Howard Silverblatt, S&P's senior index analyst.
Apple is already the most valuable company in the world, but with a market capitalization of $607.5 billion, it is still shy of Microsoft's record $618.9 billion. Microsoft set that benchmark on Dec. 30, 1999, at the height of the dot-com bubble.
Microsoft (MSFT (http://money.cnn.com/quote/quote.html?symb=MSFT&source=story_quote_link)) now trades at a valuation of around $260 billion.
Despite Apple's stunning share price rise, the company's stock gains haven't kept pace with its earnings. That means Apple's shares are still relatively cheap. Trading at 14 times this year's earnings forecast, it has a price-to-earnings ratio far below that of some tech stocks, including Facebook (FB (http://money.cnn.com/quote/quote.html?symb=FB&source=story_quote_link)), Groupon (GRPN (http://money.cnn.com/quote/quote.html?symb=GRPN&source=story_quote_link)) and even Zynga (ZNGA (http://money.cnn.com/quote/quote.html?symb=ZNGA&source=story_quote_link)), whose stock has plunged sharply.

Apple’s Stock Projected To Reach $2,000 By The End Of 2015

NEWS (http://elitedaily.com/category/news/) • PRESTON WATERS (http://elitedaily.com/author/jsp/) • MAY 11, 2012 - 12:14PM

Despite Apple’s recent slide in the market, one analyst believes the company’s consistent earnings will force the stock price up to $2,000 by the end of 2015. The claim comes from independent analyst Andy M. Zaky, whose estimates over the past four years have been considerably more accurate than the average Wall Street analyst, according to Fortune.
Unlike most analysts, Zaky has projected the Cupertino-company’s growth over a number of years, rather than for relevant quarters.
Apple is roughly trading at 14 times its current earnings, if that trend were to continue until the fourth quarter of 2015, the company’s individual shares will have risen to $2,000, Zaky claims.
“I’m fairly confident about these numbers,” Zaky said. The analyst projects Apple will ship 55 million iPhones in the first quarter of 2013, 80 million in the first quarter of 2014 and 110 million a year later in the first quarter of 2015.
“2014 is the golden age of Apple and the peak growth year,” he said. “After 2015, growth will stall and Apple will become a mature company — at least for this era.” Zaky believes Apple will need to come up with new innovation in the years following 2015 to continue its growth and enter into another golden age.

Interesting all those predictions.

It sounds like Apple is going to announce the introduction of the the iWatch soon, and current stock prices are at an all time high.

Might be a good time to get in Pat
