Apple earnings forecast for 2013: more iPhones, more iPads, more money
posted by Victor H. / Sep 08, 2011, 3:36 AM
Investment company Piper Jaffray has released its earnings forecast for Apple for 2013 painting a pink future for Cupertino with 211 million reasons for that. That’s right, sales of Apple devices are expected to reach the whopping 211 million units in 2013, and the company is predicting an impressive $164 billion revenue with earning per share expected to reach $40.50, the company’s financial adviser Gene Munster estimated.
beat Wall Street’s projections for earnings per share by 10% and are 8% ahead of the Street’s earnings number. At the same time, Apple is projected to continue accumulating cash with $140 per share in 2013, compared to $81 as of June 2011.Those predictions actually
“We believe the markets for smartphones and tablets are big enough to support this growth, even if Apple’s ASP is significantly higher than its competition,” Munster noted. “Consumers have demonstrated their willingness to pay up for the best technology, and we expect this trend to continue.”
Most of that growth comes from a single product - the iPhone, which alone is expected to account for 49% of the total revenue in 2013. Munster’s analysis predicts that the iPhone will continue growing at 30% in 2012 and 29% in 2013. Meanwhile, it also differs than other in that it rules out the need for an “ultra low end” iPhone to sustain growth.
The iPad, will be the second pillar of Apple’s success making up 21% of Apple revenue in 2013, growing by 39% next year and 35% throughout 2013. Piper Jaffray projects Apple shares to hit $607 in 12 months.
The bigger they are - the harder they fall. Let's hope that they fall soon enough. Unless of course you want to see a market in which the only phone is an iPhone, the only slate is an iPad and the only computer is a Mac *shudders.

I mean seriously - let's pretend that we don't know anything about Apple or Android or Google or whatever. How such a situation in which one company grows so much and gains so much power - while slapping lawsuits left and right and thereby eliminating any and all competition which somehow threaten it - while maintaining a policy of strictly closed source proprietary products - has come to pass?! Apple is the new Micro$oft of the 90's and early 2000's. Only they don't control just the OS - they control the whole leading platform. The leading platform in the 90's was the PC. Now it's mobile devices. And if someone doesn't stop them - they are going to control it worse than how MS controlled the PC back in the day.

"willingness to pay up for the best technology" Whooo, wait there a second. Apple never got the best technology in their iphone, they are always after the competition. For example when the first iphone was launched, they called it revolutionary. My Nokia N95 at the time was loads better than the iphone when it launched. I could install apps on my N95 iphone could not. The N95 had a much better camera, faster internet speeds. No that statement is definitely not true.

They dont release a dual core phone back in january like samsung...they release it 9 months after so on every product they make more money . And lastly they have the best batterys on a mobile device !

So you can get 2 days with push notifications and mild to standard use on it? If it is like anything Android, you don't. I've personally had it with Android. My stock Evo got 5 hours of battery on a good day, my phone crashed over night and I was late for work, and add in malware with viruses, I'm good. I'll be buying a WP7 or iPhone 5. 3 Android phones with the same response is enough for me.

1420 mAh is not the best battery on a mobile device it is below average to say the least.
