Apple in 2013: Sticky, Cheap, and Green


Apple's CFO Peter Oppenheimer sat down with Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty last Friday and provided some insights on what investors could expect from Apple in 2013. Huberty's main takeaways from the meeting included expectations for more services to enhance Apple's ecosystem, a lower-cost iPhone to expand Apple's customer base, and more cash for shareholders.

Amid increasing competition from the likes of Amazon and Google , Apple's strategies in "hot" areas like these will play a major role in making or breaking Apple as an investment in 2013.

There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever, and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded with over 1,000% gains. However, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple, and what opportunities are left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward.
