Will Apple Beat the Market? Look to Europe.

With the release of the iPhone 5, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has now surpassed Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android phones in market share in the United States. And now that the iPhone 5 is on sale in China, with Apple announcing 2 million units sold over the first weekend the phone was available on the Chinese market, it looks clear that the phone will be a huge seller in that region as well. But if Apple is going to outperform the market, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Eric Bleeker says we need to be looking at Europe.

There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded, with more than 1,000% gains. However, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. Eric is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple, and what opportunities are left for the company (and, more importantly, your portfolio) going forward.

    No chance of that! IBM, Intel, Microsoft and Novell were at the center of the largest technology revolution ever. Apple's lead the largest consumer technology bubble ever until Android took over. Now it's up to Microsoft to see if the can stop the socialist advertising borgs and their Android virus.

    GO APPLE!! Apple is a company run by people who care about American's and a company with INTEGRITY! They put their hearts and souls into their products and demand excellence from all their employees. This is why I will always buy AAPLE PRODUCTS AND STAY LOYAL TO AAPL.

    AAPL will blow away their past record earnings and their next 3 quarters will be huge. Now is the time to buy stock in AAPL
