RBC Capital raises estimates on Apple based on ‘massive Mac momentum,’ European iPhone success
Thursday, December 06, 2007 - 08:48 AM EST
In a note to clients yesterday, analysts at RBC Capital Markets reiterated their "outperform" rating on Apple Inc. (AAPL) shares and raised their estimates on the Cupertino California-based Mac-, iPod-, and iPhone-maker.
November data from the firm's Technology Adoption Panel point to 'massive Mac momentum' in the current holiday quarter. RBC expects 2.4 million Macs to be shipped in the holiday quarter, up 9% over last quarter's all-time Mac sales record (2.2 million units) and 47% over last year's holiday quarter. The firm expects worldwide Mac share to rise to 3.7% in calendar year 2008, up from an estimated 3.1% in calendar 2007, with Mac share of the U.S. PC market rising to 9.3% from 7.2%.
The analysts say that, based on store visits and meetings with carriers, Apple’s iPhone has been received well in Europe. Apple’s European iPhone sales are also ready to surge, with the product’s launch in other nations and the expected rollout of a next-gen 3G iPhone in "the first half of 2008," the analysts added.
EPS estimates for FY08 and FY09 have been raised from $4.80 to $4.81 and from $6.00 to $6.02, respectively. Analysts upped thier target price from $205 to $215.
RBC Capital expects Apple to sell 400,000-500,000 iPhones in Europe in Apple fiscal first quarter 2008.
joe. i just like pissing nj3 off, because he call's the n95 no good and you and i know that is far from the truth. i have the n95 and it's fantastic.
the only good thing apple could do is give you more feature's and i mean alot more feature's thru software update's, but i thought i heard about a i phone 2 coming out. i guess you would like that better since it would put your share's up, nevermind the fact that people would have to spend money all over again, who had bought i phone 1 so they could get i phone 2.
0 = obsolete? I'm not an iphone fan, but this phone is far from obsolete.
Neat phone - for someone that wants an ipod with some cool phone features, this is great. For the person that wants a hi-tech gadget that, that isn't just the mainstream, I'd go with the N95 - way more gadgets.
for amrut joshi :
i want to donate to you but dont know how. not working on the iphone.
i still cant send to multiple people as soon as i try it exits and brings me to main menu.
also would be nice if i could use contacts
Well said Ryone I feel so sorry for those N95 guys, they have an
apparently " good " device that does not come even close to the unbelievable ease of use and rational of the Iphone.
They keep writing meaningless comments in a desperate attempt to deny the SUCCESS of the Iphone, Apple shares UP again today 2.16 %.
Save your time and buy Apple shares, they will more than double again in the next twelve months.
I used to have an n95 before I got my iPhone.
I really dont think you can compare anything to the iPhone it really is in a legue of its own, I mean its not really a smart phone or a normal phone its more than that, its a pleasure to uses. I would never go back to the annoying days of my n95. The n95 also is not a smart phone I'm mean its 2 slow to be smart.
To people who haven't used the iPhone, go to your local dealer and ask for a demo, it will blow you away how well it works.
Here is some of the useful features of the iPhone-
1. Msn style text messaging
2. Great mp3 Player (after all it Is an ipod)
3. Great mp4 movie player
4. Big bright, high res screen
5. good camera
6. Fantastic Internet browser
7. Push email
8. Live widget reports
9. Great data tariffs with o2
10. Very fast
11. Fun youtube app
12. Edge! (better battery life than 3g)
14. Facebook app
15. Plus many more...
The best thing about these features is they work! And they work well!
If you can afford the iPhone, get it! You wont ever go back, also dont do any of this unlocking rubbish, its designed for the network in mind and the tariffs with unlimited data are great!
Oh this is written on my iPhone!

i have both the i phone and the n95. i also work in the telcommunications industry. both phones have their positives and negatives but the real negative for me is that the iphone is only 2g. i use the net alot from my phones and the cost of using data is alot more expensive on the ipone than the n95. and i know they both have wi fi but wi fi is only good if there are alot of unsecure networks about. some positives include the larger screen and the software add ons eg snes roms make although typing sms can be abit of a pain for those with large fingers. the iphone has plenty of potential but at the moment and for the next 6 months, i will be using my n95. the n95 also has the technology to do the auto rotate for the screen although you need to dl the software that will allow you to do this on the phone. it beats me why nokia has put this technology in the phone but not utilized it but there you go. in conclusion n95 better... for now...ask me again in 6-12 months though
jkre. I'am impressed with all the spec's you quoted to me about the i phone and your comeback's are just amazing. jk= junior kindergarden.
People listen to what nj3 has said a few collum's below. he said he get's rich from apple's share's. he doesn't care about the people who buy the i phone and are not happy with it and can't return it, cause according to him you are making his share's go up. new's flash nj3, everyone in this world are not as rich as you claim you are, to afford separate navigation system's. nj3 you can't take the money with you when you die. you came into the world with nothing and you leave this world with nothing.
