  • As Apple (AAPL +2.5%) surges above $425, a French site leaks an apparent sales doc for Japanese carrier KDDI that states iPhone 5S pre-sales will start on June 20 (shortly after the WWDC conference) ahead of a July launch. The doc also claims the 5S will have a 13MP camera and fingerprint reader. It's possible the launch info is dated - there have been multiple reports the 5S launch has been pushed back to Aug./Sep. from July. Also: KGI Securities, which has a pretty good track record, reports new MacBook Pro/Air models will arrive at WWDC, and that display yield issues will likely push back retina iPad Mini mass-production to October.

  • More on Apple: BGC's Colin Gillis is going contrarian, upgrading shares to Buy and setting a $500 PT (somewhat modest, compared with the PTs of other bulls) ahead of tomorrow's FQ2 report. "Jump in the fire, as any Apple good news, could boost up the stock," haikus Gillis, who has kept a guarded stance on Apple for some time. Separately, boutique shop Avondale has upgraded Apple to Outperform and set a $600 PT; the firm predicts a return to growth (10%-15%) and stabilizing gross margins in FY14. [View news story]

  • Apple (AAPL) only looks cheap if it maintains its profit margins (35.3% in 2012), writes The Brooklyn Investor. Slapping Samsung's mobile operating margin of 18% on Apple's $181B in expected revenue this year then giving it a 10 multiple and adding back cash yields a value of $370/share. Margins might not decline right away (and revenues may increase to offset), but Apple bulls are fighting the powerful historical tendency (particularly for Apple) of excess margins getting competed away. [View news story]
    why is there any reason to buy aapl...T.C. is not doing anyone any favors not even his own employees who also are watching there savings disappear like a fart in the wind. the risk versus reward is too great...ask JC Pennys what a lousy ceo can do who says he is right and everyone else is wrong

    It looks like 335 to me...tim cook is like ron johnson he could care less about stockholders..and his top talent isn't far from leaving because there retirement savings is bleeding every day down..i've said for the last 200 points down hold on and watch your money dissapear...i've done it as everyone has...this company could care less about stockholders so get a grip and wait for 335

  • Tim Cook responds to criticism of Apple's (AAPL -1.6%) Chinese repair/warranty policy by state-owned media outlets and a government agency by issuing an apology letter that outlines repair policy changes for the iPhone 4 and 4S. Separately, Fidelity Contrafund, Apple's biggest active shareholder, discloses it cut its stake in the company by 10% in January and February, to 10.4M shares. [View news story]
    Don't ever think AAPL can't go the way of sears or other great companies...lousy management and arrogance is a killer...look at the cut Johnson took in his wages because he's right and everyone else is wrong...it can happen to even the best companies when you have a ceo who don't care about the investors...if he turns things around and the setiment changes ya it will go up but it's a coin toss at this point...there are better places to make money and thats why we are all here....I want to invest in companies that are going up not down.
