UPDATE: JMP Securities Upgrades Apple


In a report released Monday, JMP Securities analyst Alex Gauna upgraded Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) from Market Perform to Outperform with a $135 price target.

Analysts at JMP Securities are optimistic that Apple will display growth and margin leverage with its anticipated new products, new applications and new markets. Gauna expects upside in Apple's sales and gross margins due to the company's penetration in Taiwan, IBM development and with the expected release of the iPhone 6.

JMP raised its full year 2014 and 2015 GAAP EPS estimates from $6.25-$6.41 to $6.50-$7.85; its $135 price target is given by a full year 2016 PE multiple of 15x.
