There are myriads of articles about AAPL on the net that what will happen with the price. Going up or down or start ranging. In my view the AAPL could be ranging in the future because it is not so popular anymore not only for investors but for cell users. It could be the same story what happened with Microsoft, AAPL show many similarity with Microsoft. In terms sales here is the end of prosperity and hype. It is not a printing machine anymore and is going to turn into a boring company shortly regarding the trading. It will be further huge and key actor as Microsoft, but doing nothing revolutionary anymore. Means AAPL will deliver the profit and numbers, but without any new breakthrough features.
There is a great difference between Apple and Google or Facebook. The users around the globe easily can change their mobile, but they are not able to change the Google and Facebook. So if I need to place a bet I would prefer to buy google, facebook, yahoo or starbucks neither than Apple.
Have a great weekend!
