Apple (AAPL +3.4%) is rebounding with the market (and then some) on the back of bullish analyst commentary (I, II). Cowen's Matthew Hoffman is joining the fun by suggesting FQ2 iPhone sales could be 4M-6M units above his forecast of 32M, which itself is above a consensus of 30.5M, thanks to strong international demand. However, he's only forecasting 28M FQ3 iPhone shipments, as demand slows ahead of a new launch.

    where was Hoffman yesterday. please, all you analysts, stop talking. all you do is chime in after the fact but none of you people have the ba-ls to step up before it all happens.

    Very True!! They love to come in and state the obvious after it happens THEN gives their opinions why. Call the homerun before it happens and then I'll respect you.

    this article is ridiculous. Billions of dollars of shares bidded up because one guy makes a comment? get real. It's OpEx week and right before earnings. It's the same old song and dance....and I'm cleaning up!

    How high can AAPL go today? 610 soon, it seems?

     

    How about 625/630 by close?

    Anyone who's followed Apple for any period knew exactly what was going on the last several days. The Apple slingshot was set and pulled in some unfortunate victims. There was no logical explanation for the share price falling in the midst of an awesome bull run except a bear trap being set. The same journalists (CNBC) fall into the trap every quarter and report the demise of Apple and lo and behold the stock just keeps rocketing. It gets boring after a while, but the money is still green....
