Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL): Current price $530.94
Apple is to be one of few companies that will thrive during the year during weak computer buying from the corporate crowd. Global corporate spending on Windows PCs and tablets dropped by 4 percent during last year, claims a report that was released yesterday from Forrester Research. Spending will probably be flat during the year since companies slowly replace old Windows PCs with new Windows 8 devices. But Apple is “one vendor that will buck this trend,” stated a research firm in a report. The company will likely sell $7 billion worth of Macs and $11 billion of iPads to corporate customers during the year, and the number will probably rise to $8 billion worth of Macs and $13 billion of iPads next year.
