Apple Computer Inc.'s quarterly profit blew past the most optimistic Wall Street expectations, powered by strong sales, but its revenue forecast for the current quarter was below the more optimistic expectations and the stock fell.<br><br><br>
Wall Street PC weenies will always think of Apple as being a weak investment because of it market share of 4%.<br><br>Their ill conceived notion of "All Computer" sales = total market share - is a Red Hearing at best. They think that Dell and Apple sell the same products, but they don't Dell sells PCs Apple sells Macs, completely different animals.<br><br>Dell has to compete with Sony, Hitachi, Gateway, IBM and yada yada - they all have a percentage in the PC market - Apple has 100% of its market = still Apple is lumped in with the total PC sales from all the other PC vendors.<br><br>Apple will never get a fair shake from Wall Street until they understand that Apple and PCs are really different products and both should have their own rating structure.<br><br>
