The Cupertino, Calif.-based company remained America's top smartphone vendor in November on the back of 'strong' iPhone 5s sales and 'steady' iPhone 5c sales, according to data cited by Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley in a Thursday note to investors. Samsung notched a second-place finish in an industry that has seen major sales consolidation throughout the fourth quarter.
Canaccord's surveys also "indicated strong Black Friday weekend iPad Air and new iPad mini sales...essentially at all channels where the iPads were available."
Walkley raised his price target for AAPL to $600 from $580 and revised shipment estimates up to 54 million in Q1 2014.
