  • Apple (AAPL +1.9%) roundup: 1) Brian White cites Chinese 3G growth as a reason for his $888 PT: he points out China's 3G sub base rose 83% Y/Y in April to 293.1M, and is expected to hit 375M-400M by year's end. China Mobile (CHL - previous) had 120M 3G subs; China Unicom (CHU) had 92M, and China Telecom (CHA) 81M. 2) Taiwan's Economic Times reports Apple is testing 1.5" OLED displays for an iWatch, and that "market rumors" indicate Foxconn has received iWatch trial production orders. 3) Digitimes reports MacBook orders are expected to grow 20% Q/Q in Q2, as Apple launches new systems sporting Intel Haswell CPUs at June's WWDC conference. [View news story]
    I agree completely with Brian that AAPL will continue growing working with the Chinese companies introducing new items and his PT of $888 seems reachable

  • The Chinese government is expected to issue 4G TD-LTE licenses by year's end, writes Morgan Stanley's Katy Huberty in a bullish note on Apple (AAPL +1.2%). The licenses could pave the way for China Mobile (CHL), which has 700M+ subs and is spending $6.75B this year on its TD-LTE network (still in trial mode), to begin selling the iPhone. One potential roadblock: China Unicom (CHU) and China Telecom (CHA) want the government to take its time in issuing TD-LTE licenses. CHA wants to delay its 4G capex, and both carriers are supporting the FDD-LTE standard (far more popular outside of China). (AAPL/CHL agreement) [View news story]
    It's not only China prospects for AAPL but in general the future for AAPL looks very promising. Whoever buys here will be happy a year from now. I am long!

  • 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.

  • Is Apple (AAPL -1.7%) starting to see a brain drain in the post-Jobs era? "There is a growing level of dissatisfaction among Apple executives and employees, and a greater willingness to explore leaving," one VC tells BI. Another says his firm is seeing a lot more resumes from Apple employees, and attributes this both to the impact leadership changes have had on Apple's culture, and the higher pay offered by startups. A month ago, John Gruber warned Apple is at risk of losing top talent, and called it "the single biggest problem that Apple faces." [View news story]

    Love your comments.AAPL looks like it hit bottom at 420, doesn't want to go lower.Just today Credit Suisse gave it an "outperform" rating with a $600 target. Great call
