Andy Zaky: Apple will cross $1,000 within 15 months

Zaky called that bottom in mid May


Zaky

FORTUNE -- The last time Bullish Cross' Andy Zaky issued a public recommendation -- as opposed to the advice he administers daily to his paying clients -- was May 18.

That day Apple (aapl) touched $522.18, which Zaky believed was a bottom, and he told anybody who would listen to buy at $530 to $550.

I mention this because Zaky, a former Fortune contributor who now runs the only Apple hedge fund I know of, has a pretty good track record on these things -- like four for four. (See here.)

In his May post he predicted that Apple would hit $750 sometime before the end of January. When the stock crossed $700 in after-market trading Monday -- up 32% since his last buy signal -- he followed up with another public posting -- this one laying out his Apple price targets for the next two years. He sees Apple going to

  • $750 before the end of January 2013,
  • $850 in late summer or early fall 2013,
  • $1,000 in late December or early January 2014,
  • $1,500 by the end of 2014, and
  • $2,000 sometime in 2015

Mark your calendars.
