Though the press has given the iPhone 5 a somewhat cool reception, analysts have been as positive on Apple (AAPL +2%) as ever, and that helped shares make new highs today. Bernstein notes Apple expects the iPhone 5 to be available in 100 countries by December (31 are expected by the end of September), a much quicker rollout than for prior models, and FBN, which is lifting its target to an even $1,000, forecasts 174M iPhones will be sold in FY13.
