Apple Inc. Research Report 

On September 20, 2013, Bloomberg reported that the global debut of Apple
Inc.'s (Apple) latest iPhones is poised for record as China joins debut. The
report stated that the Company's iPhone 5s and 5c went on sale in U.S.,
Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore
and the U.K, and in addition, for the very first time, Apple rolled out its
flagship product for sale in China on the same day as elsewhere, abandoning
the usual three-month delay, as the Company seeks to lure new customers in the
world's largest mobile-phone market. According to the Bloomberg report,
Natalie Kerris, a spokeswoman for Apple, said demand for the new iPhones was
"incredible" and that they were sold out or in limited supply at some stores.
The Bloomberg report further added that Carl Howe, an analyst at Yankee Group,
is of the opinion that Apple could top 7 million in sales if it has enough
handsets. However, Howe added, "Apple may not even hit the 5 million I
predicted last year if the 5s is in really short supply." The Full Research
