Here are a few crazy ideas...

Apple Stock Price Flat Despite Impressive Q2 Earnings (AAPL)

Stock market news

Apple stock slipped 1% in early morning trading Tuesday and later went flat as Wall Street yawned at another great quarter for the Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant.

AAPL stock had gained 5% in the week leading up to its Q2 earnings announcement, and even was up about 1% in after-hours trading. Apple stock closed at $132.65 yesterday.

The mild reaction is oddly dismissive of a striking earnings beat for Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL).

But the Q2 Apple earnings beat was no fluke. And it speaks volumes about the direction of Apple stock...

20150415-KFG-Varney

Of all the Apple stock price predictions out there, this may be the boldest: AAPL shares will reach $200 within 24 months.

The Apple Watch will be one of the catalysts that drives Apple Inc. to a $1 trillion market cap. Today, I predict how long it will take to get there - and how much that will boost Apple's share price.

We love our Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) products - the Apple Watch, the iPad, the MacBook, the iPhone. In fact, we say this company no longer sells products; it sells an entire ecosystem.

It sells itself.

Q2 AAPL Earnings Will Beat on Strength of iPhone 6

The iPhone makes up the majority of Apple's revenue, making it the key to success for AAPL earnings. And the figures will show the iPhone 6 had a stellar quarter.
