At $700, Does Apple Still Have Room to Run?

After reaching new all-time highs almost weekly since the start of the year, shares of Apple officially eclipsed the $700 mark this week. As we all know, Apple's running on all cylinders. But with a new record high also comes fresh skepticism. At the forefront of tech investors' mind: Can Apple keep up its winning streak?

Additionally, Research In Motion is set to release its updated smartphone platform in early 2013.
