Economist and Hedge Fund Manager Shayne Heffernan of www.livetradingnews.com takes a look at APPL.

Apple Inc NASDAQ:AAPL the chart indicates AAPL is ready to bounce back to the $620 range in the near term. Christmas sales will be a boost to AAPL an the long term range here is 480-1000.

Apple forecasts Q1 revenue of about $52 billion, or $11.75 a share, but analysts expected just shy of $55 billion, or $15.45 a share. When Apple announced this week at the iPad mini launch that it had only managed to sell its 100 millionth iPad — a huge feat on the grand scale — it fell short of analysts’ expectations. It’s hoped that iPad mini sales will help the overall iPad figure pick up towards and during the Christmas sales period.

Following are third-quarter sales of mobile phones in millions of handsets, according to research firm Gartner.
