>> Apple shares crossing the finish line Monday at their highest closing price ever. Shares have surged 10% in the last two weeks ever since Apple announced its sales juggernaut, the iPhone, snapped a yearlong selling slump. Reuters' tech correspondent Noel Randewich says investors are betting on the next big thing.
>> It's the 10th anniversary of the first iPhone. And there are increasing signs that the company is planning to put out what people are describing as kind of a blockbuster, really souped up, with features that are incrementally more interesting than they typically have been over the last several years.
>> Apple is a mastermind at preventing leaks. But that's not stopping Wall Street from speculating, which is pushing the stock even further into the stratosphere.>> The most recent rise in Apple stock price today was driven by a research note from a Goldman Sachs analyst who covers Apple, who is, again, talking about some of the new features of the phone that might be launched this year, specifically augmented reality features, which have become popular in the last several months.
>> And it's not just hardware that has investors ready to take another taste of Apple. A growing number of experts now believe the market is underestimating the potential of Apple services like Apple Pay. One analyst telling investors that if the power of Apple services was truly factored in, the stock would be worth 10% more.
