    Long AAPL is as out of consensus as it gets!

    As to what Apple will earn to justify all that, Munster sees the company increasing smartphone share and maintaining tablet computer share:


    For CY12, we expect $44.76 in EPS, 27% y/y growth. For CY15, we expect $80.18, 23% y/y. The most important market is the smartphone market, where we estimate Apple had 19% share last year, which we expect to go to 33% in CY15, with ASP’s going from ~$580 in CY11 to an estimated ~$435 in CY15. Moving forward, we believe the smarpthone market is boiling down to essentially two players at scale: Apple and Samsung […] ltimate shift of the third generation iPad to a $399 price point in CY13 after the fourth generation iPad is released should enable the company to sell a tablet with a retina-display screen for under $400. Second, we believe that Apple will launch an iPad with a smaller screen at a sub-$300 price point. Given our iPad sales assumptions, we believe that Apple will have 60% tablet market share in CY13 from 64% in CY12. We believe Apple will have 55% market share in CY14 and 60% share in CY15. The reason we expect growth/share to accelerate in CY15 is that we believe the iPad will become more widespread as both an enterprise and education device.


    Munster adds that Apple could add $4 per share to his 2015 estimate of roughly $80 in net profit through a television set, though he’s not formally modeling that at this point.


    Using a 14 times multiple of $84 would put the stock above $1,000, he writes. Specifically, $1,176.

    I attempting to see what all of these have in common, w the exception of AAPL the are all trending up for 12 mos, but experiencing a dip for 5 days, yes? PE's are not consistent, some high some low. Innovators? Don't know, but UA seems interesting w niche undergarments! Hmmm ...
