Prudential Rates Apple Stock Neutral

Prudential Equity Group downgraded its rating for Appleis stock from overweight to neutral-weight on Friday, according to MarketWatch. Although Prudential expects a strong first quarter and fiscal year in 2006, it feels that Appleis stock already reflects this. High expectations from investors may also add risk to Appleis profile.
