Two analysts raised their target prices for APPLE COMPUTER INC. (68.57, up 4.11 @ 9:42 a.m. EST) shares, citing strong sales for iPod digital music players. The shares have been trading at four-year highs over the past week after a Piper Jaffray analyst nearly doubled his 12-month price target on the stock to $100. Now, Merrill Lynch raised its price target for Apple shares to $78 from $61, saying iPod sales may grow as the product line is expanded. UBS also raised its price target to $77 from $66. UBS analyst Ben Reitzes wrote in a research note, “We believe higher-margin Photo iPods and Minis are selling very well, along with iMacs and accessories, and expect momentum to continue.” (Information provided by Reuters)
