Analyst cites Apple's difficulties producing 4.8 inch screen for 2014 launch of larger Apple iPhone
Misek says that builds for the Apple iPhone 5 are dropping with the latest figure for the quarter at 30 million, down from 40 million. The amalyst says that Apple had hoped to turn things around by releasing a 4.8 inch version of its iconic smartphone to challenge the very successful Samsung GALAXY Note series, which appears to be growing its screen size geometrically from 5.3 inches to 5.5 inches to an expected 6.3 inches for the Samsung GALAXY Note III. Misek has a "Hold" on the stock with a $500 target. Apple is currently trading at $469, well off the $705 high it hit the day the Apple iPhone 5 launched last September.
