Apple can’t grow like this forever. No company can.
In a few short years, Apple has become the biggest company on the planet by market value – so big that it dwarfs every other one on the stock market. It dominates the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index as no other company has in 30 years.
With the kind of money Apple has in reserve, and the kind of growth figures the company is still demonstrating each quarter, this seems like a very, very, very distant future. Apple will remain on top like this for a long, long time.
I do not see the problem here. With their pricing, they are still selling a product for a limited group of customers, more or less. And they might stay this way, as long as they have demand for it.
And this means there always will be a market for more affordable products.
Apple may rule its own category, because there are not much competitors that have a similar premium product.
Yeah, that was people said about IBM too, once upon a time.
