Apple's 2011: A Preview

Stocks in this article: AAPL VZ GOOG QCOM

CUPERTINO, Calif. ( TheStreet) -- With the arrival of the widely-anticipated CDMA iPhone at Verizon (VZ - Get Report) and a new version of the iPad expected, next year is set to be another big one for Apple (AAPL - Get Report).

This year was huge for the tech giant and its investors; it marked the debut of the iPad, the iPhone 4 and the subsequent Antennagate debacle that briefly punched a hole in Apple's aura of invincibility.

Not that investors seemed overly concerned -- Apple's stock is up almost 52% this year and closed at a record high of $320.15 on Monday.

"There are plenty of catalysts to continue the trend of strong product development and updating -- getting the iPhone on Verizon is the biggest one for me," said Apple investor Chad Brand, president of Peridot Capital Management. "I think people may underestimate how many new subs they can get from that."

"I do expect them to upgrade the iPad in the first quarter, I do expect them to upgrade the iPhone and obviously there will be a Verizon iPhone," said Michael Yoshikami, chief investment strategist of YCMNET Advisors. "I think that the iPhone momentum is going to continue if you look at the rollout of the product globally."

Read on for what to expect from Apple next year.
