Ú Investors should be seriously looking at putting more money
into Apple stock, says one industry analyst.
Ú Robert Cihra of Caris & Company is predicting that Mac market
share will grow by 26 percent in 2010, compared to only a 16
percent expansion in the general computing industry.
Ú Cihra predicts in a new research report (PDF download, requires
registration) that Apple will have a 4 percent overall market
share in the year 2010, which is actually around what it has now,
according to numbers released in September.
Ú Appleǯs pricing and profit model, however, give it a 10 percent
share of worldwide revenue. Despite not seeing growth in terms
of overall market share, Cihra still thinks Apple is the best stock
available in the personal computing market.
