Apple (AAPL): Macs On Fire

Print Email

If research firm NPD Group is to be believed, the Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) Mac had 14% of PC sales in the US in February and 25% of the revenue share.

According to Apple Insider "The results — first revealed in an investor note from Pacific Crest Securities analyst Andy Hargreaves on Monday — represent 60 percent unit growth and 67 percent revenue growth over the same period one year ago. At the same time, overall US PC retail shipments grew just 9 percent on a 5 percent increase in revenues."

The information is probably not particularly good for Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ), and is probably especially bad for Dell (NASDAQ: DELL).

Unless iPod sales have dropped through the floor, the Mac info would indicate Apple is trading much too low.
