3 Tech Titans Making Noise: Apple Gets a Boost, Amazon’s Poland Project, Microsoft’s Surface Sell-Through

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL): Jefferies analyst Peter Misek, following a trip to Asia, has slapped Apple with a $600 price target — up from $425 — and a Buy rating, as the voyage showed a “substantial shift in attitudes toward Apple.” Misek notes that fourth-quarter earnings may still have risks, but gross margins will allow the company “to skate by” until the larger-screen iPhone 6 is released.
