AAPL: Analysts revise estimates as North American sales increase

Current boost to stock may render estimates irrelevant even as they are published

A number of analysts revised their expectations for Apple's stock last week -- only to watch those year-end estimates melt in the face of the stock's current performance, which ended trading on Monday at yet another all-time high of $133 per share. The combination of much better-than-expected sales in the holiday quarter and the increasing interest in Apple's other initiatives -- ranging from Apple Pay to forthcoming products like the Apple Watch and a possible-but-far-off car design -- has sent the stock skyrocketing.

It is worth noting that all reports on the matter -- and subsequent quotes from others -- are speculative in nature, as the company has not confirmed anything.
