Fool.com reader analyzes Apple

"What if Apple never grew again?" analyzes Apple's recent stock performance and takes a look at how much Apple should be worth if the company, theoretically, never grows. "Add the $10.15 per share for the future cash flows to the $10.48 per share for cash already in Apple's bank, and we get a value of $20.63 per share. And that's assuming Apple never grows... ever. A nice little 21% premium over today's stock price! Don't know about you, but I'm seriously thinking of scooping up a few shares."

Forbes takes a look at new economy

A Forbes.com article takes a look at the so-called new economy, drawing parallels between it and the old economy. "The new economy is nothing more than the old economy because it is impossible to maintain high growth rates... Apple and other computer makers can sell a lot of computers, but people do not necessarily want to continually buy new machines. While it's nice to have a fast machine, individuals can quickly decide that they don't need a new machine if there is no compelling reason to upgrade. There hasn't been a compelling reason for years and the machines seem to be holding up."
