In my opinion about Apple’s
stock I would have to say sell
because its stock is really high
right now and it will not last
for long especially since the
death of Steve Jobs.
Apples future plan is to develop operating systems that are easy to use, well
integrated, with a well industrialized design. Apple continues to stay ahead of
competition with new innovations and products that capture our interests.
With the introduction of the new iPad many other companies have followed in
their footsteps to try and enter the tablet market. The iPhone another one of
Apples biggest success is one of the best selling smart phones in the U.S. and
apple will continue to produce iPhones that are truly innovative.
