Apple’s stock is not on the tear it was just a while back but it has been making steady gains over the course of the spring till now. Analysts still remains optimistic about Apple.
With the iPhone 6 likely (very likely) to come out this fall, it would seem unlikely Apple’s stock will go anywhere but upward. The company still makest tremendous products that the market wants regardless of skeptics who lament that nothing major technologically has been released.
Periods of evolutionary growth, provided they’re built on an evolving forward motion rather than a sit on their laurels approach is generally good overall for healthy stock growth. It will be interesting to see how Apple finishes the year but so far things have been looking fairly rosy.
