TheStreet asked readers when they thought Apple shares would double from here, hitting $1,000: 67.1% of the more than 3,000 poll participants said they expected Apple shares to double within the next or three years. Both the two- and three-year answers received exactly the same number of votes.
Just 2.7% of those who took the poll expected Apple to double in the next six months. Should Apple double in value, it would be worth nearly $1 trillion in market cap making it far and away the most valuable company in America. About 8.5% of the voters expect Apple will see the $1,000 mark in one year.
Apple will never see the $1,000 level said 21.7% of voters, perhaps because of stock-splits or an inability to increase its market cap to that level.Apple shares were higher Tuesday, up 0.15% to $503.35.
