    Glad to see what I perceive to be a positive comment but no one knows what even the iWatch will do. Analyst were woefully wrong on the iPhone and iPad so I have little faith in the above numbers. If I were playing the odds I would go with much higher numbers.

    I think a I watch would be a fad unless it has characteristics that are not even imaginable.

    The iPod AND iPhone were both labeled "fads" by analysts and the press. We all know what happened next.

    forget the iWatch.
    If apple could create iPhone with solar panel for its continuous charging. If they can get rid of headphone cable and make it wireless over bluetooth or other technology. Apple has the money, people and technological capabilities to do it.
    That itself will propel to new heights. All they have to do is keep improving the devices they already have.
    See the improvement from 1st iPhone to iPhone 5. Its like day and night.

    I believe the solar application is in the works. It was included in a patent filing.

    So much for the IWatch bump. AAPL is trading at 455 headed for 400 when the BOD meeting disappoints.

    The problem is $2 in extra EPS does not matter if we continue to have PE multiple compression.

     

    What the market needs is a reason for AAPL multiple expansion. It's time for AAPL to act - hope the shareholder meeting is positive.

    Instread of being the first buyer on my block to buy the watch, I'm going to use the cost of the watch to buy more shares of Apple.

    When analysts predict a drop in growth, that needs to be analyzed.

     

    A drop in growth means growth !

     

    Any growth is good news when P/E is 10.3.
