Apple will emerge as a powerful, life-changing company in 2007, according to MSN Money. And in a few years, it could also become the most valuable.
"The latest step in Appleis amazing transformation," Job Markman wrote, "from industry doormat to kingpin will come in the next 30 days, as investors and consumers come to recognize a set of powerful catalysts that have the potential to kick Appleis sales and earnings to levels that will shock skeptics and possibly even surprise optimists."
Apple has achieved this by excelling in multiple fields. While Microsoft, Intel, Google, and Cisco have focused on their particular expertise in just software, hardware or telecommunications, Apple, has demonstrated expertise in combining all those elements and added excellent retailing.
In 2007, the stars are in alignment for Apple. "In mid-March, Apple is scheduled to launch its first television product, called Apple TV; in April, it will release a new operating system called Leopard; in May, it will benefit from the launch of a long-awaited professional design software from Adobe called Creative Suite 3; in June it will launch its new wireless handset called iPhone ... I canit think of any company, in technology or any other sector, that has so many concurrent product cycles that can drive upside in revenues and earnings," Mr. Markman reported.
But the real clincher is that all these products will work seamlessly together. Perhaps, the multitouch technology will emerge as well as a unifying theme and integrating technology. All in all, Apple is on a growth path that theyive never experienced before.
Mr. Markmanis advice: Appleis stock is on their Top Ten list to buy.
