Analysts’ new estimates
so far approximately 30 analysts have submitted new quarterly estimates since the big accounting change. The averages of them are:
Q2 2010 - 2.35
Q3 2010 - 2.52
Q4 2010 - 3.13
Q1 2011 - 3.95
Which is a total of 11.95. They’re actually higher than I was expecting, but I doubt AAPL will have any problem beating them when the time comes.
