A Big Weekend Ahead for the iPhone 5

Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) iPhone 5 dropped yesterday, and extrapolating from historical pre-sale data, weekend sales are expected to hit 8 million.

The iPhone 4S sold 1 million pre-orders in its first 24 hours, while the iPhone 5 sold 2 million in the same amount of time. During its opening weekend, the 4S sold 4 million units, leading to the staggering prediction for the iPhone 5's first weekend. The bottom line here is that this is going to be a huge seller -- probably Apple's most popular device ever -- and a huge growth driver for the company.

Even at its current all-time high of $700, Apple is still a cheap stock with plenty of room to run.
