Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Brian White says,due to a major update of Apple`s main product over the past three months and the lack of competitiors with innovative force,in the background of consumption`s growth in the US market,we believe that Apple has the opportunity to usher in a bright holiday shopping season.Although Apple is the only S & P 500 market capitalization of $ 700 billion company,it is from the title that most valuable company in the history still have some distance.Microsoft's market capitalization reached its peak in 1999 , more than 613 billion US dollars ,Converted to the equivalent of $ 874 billion this year .At that time, Microsoft accounted for 5% of the total market capitalization of the S & P 500 company , IBM even once reached over 6 percent ,but now, because the market generally rose to record highs , Apple accounted for the proportion of the S & P 500 has not yet reached 4%.
The market value of this technology giant from Clifornia exceeded the world`s most popular search engine company Google in January 2010,and exceeded the Seattle Microsoft in four months after.Microsoft`s market value is $3940 billion.On the other hand , from a historical perspective , Apple is still relatively cheap.When Microsoft reached its peak , its price-earnings ratio of 72 times according to Nasdaq and Factset data .Apple's price earnings ratio is only 18,same as the verall level of s&p 500 level.But Apple's sales and profit growth is much higher than all the other blue chips ,Apple's revenue growth of 15%, while earnings growth of over 20 %.
The Apple Watch which will be launched next year is the first new product since Cook took office.In this potential popularity on wearable devices , analysts appear big differences, but they all expect that Apple's stock price will be higher.
Apple Investor Carl Icahn believe that the company has a lot of cash ,its true market value has already far more than 10 digits.If Apple wants to reach that milestone , then Apple 's stock need to rise by 43% to $ 171 .If apple want to achieve a new milestone, then apple's price need to rise by 43%,up to $171.
