Jane, Get Me Off This Crazy Thing: Apple Shares Hit New High

With the launch of the iPhone 5 just a week away and preorders for the device already sold out, Apple’s stock price is charting new heights.

Shares of the iPhone maker spiked to an all-time high on Friday, hitting $696.98 before slipping back a bit. They’re trading at $693.00 as I write this, well above their $689.96 opening price. Clearly the market is pleased to see such high demand for the iPhone 5 — demand that may be even stronger than Apple’s expectations, given how quickly preorder inventory ran out.

Said Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, “[The] positive reception of the phone gives us greater confidence that Apple can not only meet our 6-10 million iPhone 5 unit estimate for the rest of September, but also hit our 49 million unit estimate for the December quarter, which assumes 32 percent year-over-year growth.”

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
