Will Rumors of iPhone 6 Price Increase Help Apple (AAPL) Stock Today?

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Analysts are speculating that Apple's (AAPL) latest iPhone iteration will be bigger than ever with a hefty price tag to match.

Alleged body mold and blueprints of the iPhone 6 were leaked online Monday by Chinese microblogging site Weibo. The images show the molds for what has long been rumored to be a 4.6 inch and unprecedented 5.7 inch iPhone 6 screen.

Peter Misek at Jefferies said "Our checks indicate Apple has started negotiating with carriers on a $100 iPhone 6 price increase."

Deutsche Bank AG  (DB) initiated coverage on Apple shares Thursday with a "buy" rating and a $650 price target.

TheStreet Ratings team rates APPLE INC as a Buy with a ratings score of B+. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate APPLE INC (AAPL) a BUY. This is driven by a few notable strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, solid stock price performance, expanding profit margins and growth in earnings per share. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income."
