    You should know that Apple still has 75% of the market share in the $600+ segment of the market. Apple still enjoys 70% profit in the Smartphone & 85% Profit in the Tablet Segment.

    This fall you will notice Apple introduce a High end Phone as well as Midrange iPhone to take market share from Samsung and other Suppliers. Apple will introduce New Software Services in the next few months.

    Apple's net profit in smartphones is around 22 billion dollars for the last 12 months working with only 240 Mobile operators. Samsung's Profit is less than 10 billion dollars for all the Smartphones they sell in 200 + Countries & 500 + Mobile operators.

    I believe with the New iPhone 5S and other new Products to be released in the next 6months, Apple will grow double Digits.

    I think the wait and see approach is the correct one. If one of the newly introduced products stumble, there could be such a race for the door you could get pretty badly trampled ('They can't introduce new products without Steve Jobs' will be heard on the investing wire).

    There are better bets to make today, and if the trend truly is your friend, I want to see a genuine uptick (there are lots of them out there).
