Apple (AAPL +0.6%) estimates were lowered today in response to Tim Cook's iPad comments and worries about iPhone 5 supply issues. But with shares now at 11x FY12E EPS (exc. cash), these concerns might be baked in ahead of tomorrow's report. The iPad Mini's pricing is yielding plenty of debate.

Baird: "Though priced above [rivals], the device is thinner, lighter, boasts a bigger screen and better cameras, and ... much wider app selection."
