Kaufman ups AAPL to $152

Having formerly kept the figure identical for months, Kaufman Bros. has today issued a memo raising its price target for Apple stock. The target has been pushed from $120 to $152, reflecting what Kaufman suggests are several factors offering potential growth. Among these is WWDC in June, which should herald imminent shipment of the iPhone 3.0 firmware and new phones to match.

Apple should also be aided by the forthcoming release of Mac OS X Snow Leopard, which Kaufman suggests will help expand Mac sales beyond the recent boost provided by new iMacs, Mac minis and Mac Pros. Another major influence is expected to be the rumored Apple netbook, which could represent a hybrid between a Mac and the iPod touch, according to Kaufman analyst Shaw Wu. Potential aids could come in the form of lower service plan costs, and an overdue update to the Apple TV.

    indian summer for stocks

    hmph. Once again anal-cysts trying to predict the weather this summer based upon last week's weather.

    Personally, I am dumping all of my AAPL should it get into the $130-$140 range. There is certainly more bad news to come for the economy. A crash in commercial real estate is just beginning. 2 more years of toxic option ARM mortgages adjusting upwards, throwing more homeowners into foreclosure and dumping more foreclosed homes onto the market. Finally, I don't believe the temporary good news for bank earnings. These institutions still have lots of toxic c*** assets on their books. They are nowhere near recovering and making profits without massive government subsidies/bailouts.

    Regardless of Apple's prospects - which I am certain are bright in the mid-to-long term - the stock market is going to freak out again in the next 3 to 6 months. I'm thinking dump at $130-$135 and buy back in at ~$90 or so.

    Just my $0.02.

    Economy is bad and getting worse but the market already reacted to that, for company's like Apple its time to grow again. But i have to agree that the stockmarket is a strange beast and can easily freak out on bad news.

    You're probably right...

    and there's that GM bankruptcy thing to contend with down the line. It seems inevitable. I do find it hard to believe that Apple will drop back into the $90 range, but I see you're point. I suppose good sales of the coming iPhone 3 will boost Apple shares to the $130 mark but I figured it would stay around there until the tablet is announced and then go up higher. I don't want to see any downward trends.

    There have been some rumors that a possible economy recovery will by near the end of the year

    I am remembering the last recession, particularly the after effects of the S L crisis. Residential RE remained essentially flat for several years - from the late 80s until about the mid-90s - when it began a gradual, sensible recovery until 2002 when Greenspan decided he needed a housing bubble to seal his legacy as the biggest charlatan in the field of economics since his buddy Ayn Rand.
