Dallas, Texas 08/14/2013 (Financialstrend) – Innovative investor Carl Icahn announced that he has amassed a “large position” in Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and trusts the share could be worth as much as $700 a share if Chief Executive Tim Cook pressed for a greater share buyback.
The reaction to the tycoon produced a stir in Wall Street and pushed Apple’s stock 5% higher to close at a 7-month high of $489.57 on the NASDAQ on Tuesday. Apple Inc.’s iPhone 5S could be the most effective in iPhone antiquity. The highly expected smartphone could have the most fruitful launch ever, according to Trip Chowdry Managing Director of Equity Research at Global Equities Research. He clarified that, “The innovative iPhones will be enormously effective. This will be the most successful creation launch ever in the history of the company.”
Chowdry has been acute in the past in respects to the firm’s managers. He before said that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has yet to distribute advanced products and that Tim Cook (Apple’s current chief executive officer) should leave the firm. This is why it’s exciting that Chowdry would consider the iPhone 5S and inexpensive iPhone will be a victory. Chowdry’s investigation demonstrates that many smart phone consumers in India, Thailand and Malaysia buy inexpensive Android phones thinking they are really iPhones. The continuing patent battle with Samsung’s will help Apple Inc. distinguish between its products and those of its opponents.
