Target price for Apple deemed to increase, according to Canaccord
Canaccord Genuity analyst Michael Walkley has stated that Apple (AAPL) could gain market share of the high-end smartphone and tablet markets during 2H/2014. The report's summations are based on the belief that new iPhones and iPads with larger screen sizes could create a strong upgrade cycle among Apple's consumer base.
