    I feel AAPL will be $600 by end of the year. As per the rumors AAPL may be opening the Apple TV for developers which can be additional revenue stream.

    Apple Internet Radio may be another revenue stream in 2013 in addition to AAPL pushing low cost devices to China, India and other Countries.

    Tim Cook did tell that China will overtake the US in Smartphone & ipad shipments in 2013.

    100 billion dollar buyback may also be a boost for the Stock.

    The gross margins may be different, but this will be largely due to the increased numbers we will see for the iPad and especially the iPad mini. Therefore, it may be reasonable to assume that though the figure may be lower, the QUANTITY of units may be that much higher including both the phones and the pads, and therefore the overall revenue and profit numbers may meet or beat expectations.

    We think that there will be an upside surprise, or that some announcements pending during the next few weeks will definitely give the stock some added interest.
