You are right. I owe you a proof. Let's take the net profit data for the last 5 quarters:http://www.google.com/finance?q=NASDAQ:AAPL&fstype=iiThat would be $2,532M, $3,378M, $3,074M, $3,253M and $4,308M (net profit per quarters). Assuming linear growth of the net profit, they will amass additional $150B in 20 quarters, i.e. 5 years. So that's what I was talking about. Mid-term future. Sorry if I wasn't being clear.
