Apple: BMO Ups iPad Estimate on Enterprise Prospects

BMO Capital‘s Keith Bachman this afternoon reiterated an Outperform rating on shares of Apple (AAPL), while raising his price target to $675 from a prior $590, after raising his outlook for Apple’s iPhone and iPad unit sales this quarter and the rest of the year.
Bachman believes that the iPad will have increasing uptake in corporations, not just among consumers, he writes, citing in part a recent InformationWeek survey that showed support for tablets on some level spreading throughout corporate IT shops:
As part of our views on the tablet market, we think corporate adoption will help, regardless of the ultimate purchaser of the device. More specifically, we think both end consumers will buy tablets for work purposes, and corporations will increasingly buy tablets, and thereby stretch PC replacement cycles.
As a consequence, Bachman sees Apple’s iPad increasingly boosting its share not only of the traditional “PC market,” but also Apple’s shares of the market more broadly defined, including tablets as a computing device:
We believe Apple will continue to gain share in the PC market, and we assume Apple�s share increases by about 100 bp from 5% in CY2011 to approximately 6% in CY2013. Importantly, if we look at iPads, we note that Apple�s share has also increased relative all product categories. The iPad�s share relative to the notebook market has increased from 7% in CY2010 to 19% in CY2011, and has increased from 4% in CY2010 to 11% in CY2011 relative to the total PC market. We believe this trend will continue, and we assume iPad share increases to 33% of the notebook market and 20% of total PC market in CY2013.
Bachman’s estimate for the iPad this quarter goes to 11 million from 10 million. ! That bri ngs his estimate for the fiscal year ending in September to 54.1 million units, up from 53.1 million previously.
For the iPhone, given greater geographic distribution and carrier partnerships, Bachman raised his estimate for the current quarter to 30 million units from 29 million. For the full year, he raised his estimate to 124 million units from 120 million.
Bachman’s financial estimate for this quarter goes to $35.5 billion in revenue and $9.61 per share in profit, up from $34.3 billion and $9.16 a share. For the full year, he models $156.3 billion and $43.50, up from $153.3 billion and $42.33.

Best Wall St. Stocks Today: AAPL,MSFT

Don’t start a fight you can’t finish. The music industry did not capitulate to Apple’s (AAPL) suggestion that it allow music to be downloaded without digital rights management. It countered by saying that Apple’s closed iTune system was the major roadblock to a more robust song download environment.
The Recording Industry Association of America wants Apple to open up its anti-piracy system to all of its rivals. The Associated Press quoted the group as saying: "We have no doubt that a technology company as sophisticated and smart as Apple could work with the music community to make that happen."
Apple chief Steve Jobs has opened a Pandora’s Box he may wish he could close. Instead of pressuring the large music publishers to offer their content to DRM-free download access, he has been able to torque them off. That could make them favor rival systems like the Microsoft (MSFT) Zune, the platform that has suggested it share the revenue of its devices sales with the music companies.
Jobs needs to stay quiet.
