Steve Jobs

Few today would question that the late Steve Jobs was a genius, but those many mega successes have obscured the fact that from time to time he got it wrong.

That Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) sold a record number iPhone 6 models - more than 10 million - in its first weekend only hints at what the product will mean for Apple stock.

Even though the total handily beat the first three days of sales of last year's duo of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, demand far outstripped supply.

Given that the iPhone contributes about 60% of Apple's profits, that's great news for AAPL stock.

Here’s why demand for the iPhone 6 will remain strong for months to come…

It's Time to Get a Bargain on Apple


Ed Butowsky is going to owe me a steak dinner.

Butowsky is the managing partner at Chapwood Investments. He’s a good guy. And we often cross paths during our appearances on cable finance programs.

During our most recent get-together, we got into a spirited debate about one of my favorite tech stocks: Apple Inc.

As you folks know, last year I predicted that Apple would hit $1,000 a share ($142.85 post-split) by Labor Day 2016. And I’ve doggedly stuck with that projection.

Butowsky likes Apple, too. But he argues that intense competition will keep the share price from hitting my target anytime soon.

So the wealth manager and I decided to settle this good-natured disagreement the only way possible: with a steak-dinner bet.

When my deadline rolls around, I’m betting I’ll be dining on my favorite meal… Ed - I like my filet mignon cooked medium rare.

But you’ll be an even bigger winner…
