Apple continues to ride high thanks to red-hot sales of its iPad tablet and iPhone, which became available on Verizon Wireless (NYSE: VZ), the largest mobile provider in the country, in January. Concerns about supply-chain constraints, CEO succession and the impact of the earthquake and Tsunami in Japan may have put some downward pressure on the stock. With a new iPhone expected in the third quarter, some consumers may sit on the sidelines waiting for the newest model, but the company is poised for a strong second-half of the year.
AAPL (year-to-date): +10.74 percent
