If Apple’s ‘wow’ factor still exists with in its customer base, and even with investors/analysts, then the company’s upcoming launch may be the most successful so far. The joint launch of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will bring in record breaking numbers that will not only make investors happy, but also those Wall Street analysts who continuously downgrade Apple stock.
High profile investor Carl Icahn recently made a whopping $1 billion investment into Apple. The company’s stock have taken a deep dive from how they were a year ago, being more than $200 down. Yet, the famous investor made a large investment into Apple. You may be asking the question why would he do that?
Here is what Benzinga had to say:
“Trip Chowdhry, the Managing Director of Equity Research at Global Equities Research, is convinced that it will set a new record for the company.
“The new iPhones will be massively successful,” Chowdhry told Benzinga this morning. “This will be the most successful product launch ever in the history of Apple.”
Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 5S and the low-cost iPhone 5C along side each other. In the past, there was one model phone that would satisfy only a handful of people, however, with the launch of two iPhone’s, one high-end and one low-end, the two headsets are bound to satisfy a large portion of the customer base.
In countries like China and India, iPhone market share has been declining drastically. This could be the answer that Apple will give to analysts and investors. Giving customers the choice to choose from several different colors in the iPhone 5C, and perhaps offering another color or two in the high-end iPhone 5S, who wouldn’t be satisfied?
Apple is expected to offer the low-cost iPhone at a price tag of $300, but our guess is that it will cost around $300-$329. Apple seems to have some love for the $329 price tag.
Are you ready for the launch?
