AAPL Surging Following Extremely Positive Analyst Comments
In our view, the sell off in Apple's stock over the past eight weeks has gotten to the point of being "insanely insane" given the depressed valuation (CY13 P/E of 7.6x ex-cash), new blockbuster products for the holiday season, the attractive long-term growth opportunities that lie ahead and the Company's ability to distribute significant cash flow to investors. Those investors that have missed Apple or have been under-weight the stock, now have another opportunity to buy Apple before sentiment takes a turn for the positive during what has historically been the strongest quarter of the year for the stock.Apple's stock price broke through the $700 barrier for the first time back in September but had been on a significant slide since then.
Update: Apple ended the day up $38/share, or more than 7 percent, closing at $565.
