More on Apple: Though lowering his PT to $800, Jefferies' Peter Misek is predicting an iPhone 5S will arrive in June: he sees the device potentially sporting camera, display, battery, and storage upgrades, and arriving in 6-8 colors. He also thinks a cheaper iPhone ($200-$250 unsubsidized) will arrive in June to boost Apple's low emerging markets share. But as Jay Yarow notes, Misek's Apple TV predictions haven't exactly been on the mark.

    Products, baby. These guys better start coming out with creative new products....not just bells and whistles on existing crap, or they are going to face some serious headwinds from the copy-cat suppliers.

     

    There's a reason why this stock has been pummeled, and it not just 'tax selling.'

    This is America's finest company. Why are you mindlessly bashing it?

    Is a down grade to 800 really all that bad?

    Er ... The cheaper iPhone is the iPhone 4S which will be free w two year contract. And a price break in China.

     

    The color thing doesn't make sense how many colors "won't" clash w brushed aluminum?

     

    Follow the acquisitions and new hires w/r to new upgrades: something about Siri, maps, pay point services, and that new A7 chip???

    Love my new iPhone5 and iPad4. Love iOS Maps, too. It has never let me down. Today's "I got dangerously lost" story from Australia is bizarre. All mapping software is full of mistakes, and you never hear bad publicity about car navigation, which generally is always out of date and only about 95% correct.

     

    As for this Jeffries report, I hope that Apple continues to delay the TV project. The logistical costs and obstacles to warehousing, stocking, delivering and setting up big flat screens in this highly commoditized market is discouraging.

     

    The Jeffries price target adjustment is fair, as the market is antsy ... for now. The January Q1 earnings report will bring the stock much closer to that $800 mark.

    I hope Apple TV is just a better little black box with more features and alacarte content

    Car navigation resulted in a number of snow stranding (Oregon mountains and somewhere else?) deaths a few years ago and the brand of GPS never came up: just cautions on relying on fallible electronics. Similarly when lost hikers followed a GPS route to a cliff stranding, simply got pointed out a hiking GPS doesn't route like a car GPS.

     

    Apple is so often what I think of as "click bait", that tantalizing hook to get people to click the link.

     

    That said I'd like a better battery, wouldn't everyone? But my next auto-purchase is going to be a standard iPad with the iPhone 5/mini iPad form factor.
