CNBC Stock Market News ? Apple Will Become First Trillion-Dollar Company by 2014: Analyst ? CNBC.com Stock Blog - CNBC


Quote:
There’s a lot of excitement as top analysts continue to forecast when Apple will hit $1,000 a share and become the first trillion-dollar company.

For Gene Munster, managing director and senior research analyst at Piper Jaffray, that day will come sometime in 2014.

“I know that when you look at the $1,000 price tag, it looks like a big number. But when you look back and do the math … it’s not that hard to get there,” Munster told CNBC Tuesday, referring to how Apple [AAPL 690.79 -9.305 (-1.33%) ] shares have nearly doubled in the past year alone.


Munster attributes his very bullish outlook to opportunities in the mobile device space: Out of 1.6 billion total units to be made available in the market in the next couple of years, Piper Jaffray expects Apple to corner at least 400 million of the market, “a very achievable target.”

This, despite stirring concerns that the new generation of products will be more “evolutionary” rather than revolutionary.



But Munster said that in a survey his firm conducted of iPhone users across the U.S., up to 94 percent claim they will buy another iPhone, meaning the company can count on at least 35 percent to 45 percent of sales from upgrades every year. The highly anticipated Apple television, which is expected to launch next year, adds more upside to its prospects.

What will the world with Apple at $1,000 a share look like? The tech goliath alone would represent 26 percent of total U.S. technology market cap , Research in Motion would be “out of business,” and the other manufacturers such as Nokia and Microsoft will end up “virtually nothing over time,” according to the long-time tech analyst.

“It’s going to be a two-horse race between Apple and Android phones built on Samsung,” said Munster, who raised his current target on the iPad maker from $718 to $910. Apple is "going to go and rip market share right out of [its competitors] and put that into [its] market cap.”

apple's dominance of the market is not based solely on their quality (which i'd debate isn't even top, computers or phones). apple became a monster by their brilliant marketing, and noware just riding the wave. they haven't been innovative, nor even marketed that well lately. people just now know the brand apple, and buy it blindly over other competitors who are significantly better.

Not innovative? Are you fuckin' serious? Yes, of course their marketing is amazing, imo the best out there by far but to say they haven't been innovative makes me wonder if you've finally got laid and your brain is scrambled.

When the iphone came out it was extremely innovative, same with the ipad.....they set the market and they were the standard that all these phones have modeled their phones after for the most part. I know you don't like Apple, fine but come on you can't be that short sighted?

I thought you meant lately when talking about the marketing. Still think that's what you meant but whatever, you wouldn't admit that now anyway. People and phones these days are unbelievably obsessed and unless you come out every year and re-invent the wheel you're looked upon as outdated. Society today is a bit of a joke when it comes to technology snobery. Loyalty to a brand is looked at as being gulible when said phone came up with most of the technolgy used by it's competitors.

We're fucked. We are all guilty of it, but where does it end? Look at the US, you have a horrible economy, people out of work all over the place and millions clamering to buy phones every year, in most cases spending upwards of 800$ per phone. Like i said where does it end? And it will only get worse, the appetite for technology is so high at this point that people will buy anything at almost any price if it's the product of the moment. In 2-3yrs time people will be talking about the Samsung the way Samsung owners now talk about apple. And the wheel will keep on spinning.

It's already there. It's amazing how quick technolgy is moving these days. If you don't do something somewhat significant for a while you're left in the dust. Just 2yrs ago BB was still doing ok, if they had at that point done something at that point when they started to nosedive they could be doing well today.
