Wells Fargo to resume coverage of Apple with an Outperform rating
major makeover for Apple's iconic smartphone with a larger screen, a form factor redesign and LTE connectivity. He sees the launch boosted by faster than usual carrier rollouts of the phone and a buzz about the handset being one of the last products that the late Steve Jobs had a hand in designing.
Wells Fargo sees further unit growth for the iPhone which is important considering that the device accounted for 43% of Apple's revenue and 56% of its gross profit last year. There are some risks, according to the bank. Competition or low demand could lead to the drop in the average selling price of the Apple iPhone, or growth could slow due to tougher comparisons with last year's strong numbers. Other risks include a weaker economy, shortages of parts, higher expenses and its numerous legal disputes.

"We believe Apple's combination of brand, innovation, and ecosystem are unmatched"

Where is the innovation? I think brand is the main reason Apple makes so much $$$.

Thanks to Motorola's innovation, you have iPhone.

Yep without Motorola there wouldn't be any cell phones at all. Heck Apple even steals from Motorola so let me repeat, what innovation? http://www.phonearena.com/news

So much energy has been accumulated around next iPhone expectations that this will surely be the biggest and greatest opening in the history of human kind and Apple will become the most valuable company in history.
Milions of people will go on streets to wait for their iConic phone, but only God knows that they should be on streets, making Revolution against capitalism. But they are not interested in that. Those are not humans anymore, but robots. This will mark the End of History.

Actually - WF did not need it at all they were more forced to take the bailout as the gov't

It's amazing how Apple can get such praise when they release the same under powered product every year while the competition flies past them.
