Goldman on iPod, Mac sales

Research firm Goldman Sachs is predicting strong holiday sales for Apple's iPods and Macs, and remains confident about the Cupertino-based company's forthcoming products in 2008. Goldman analyst David Bailey foresees the new iPhone arriving in the second half of 2008, with a smaller upgrade and more flash memory surfacing earlier in the year, according to Seeking Alpha.

Bailey told clients in a research note that he believes a next-generation iPhone could have a different look than the current design, and that the new revision will likely include 3G capability.

The analyst's predictions about a new iPhone coincide with a statement made by AT&T chairman Randall Stephenson late last month, when the executive confirmed a 3G-capable iPhone arriving some time next year.

"You'll have it next year," Stephenson told another research firm.

    Once again

    We see predictions for the investor without any stated evidence to back it up. I would say why bother with Apple's announcement scheme, but there are actually idiots out there who pay these so-called analysts to come up with this stuff. Whatev.

    goldman lol

    my AAPL has out-performed my goldman over the last 3 years by a multiple. when i told my GS advisor in the beginning that i had my own stake in AAPL and wanted their take on it, they were totally wishy-washy and basically kinda laughed it off.

    but i guess that's kinda their job. mix it all up and hope most of it sticks.
