Analyst sees Apple ‘iTV’ taking 5% of HDTV market, earning $17B in revenue

“If Apple were to offer high-definition television sets with an average selling price of $1,500, one Wall Street analyst believes the company could capture 5 percent of the market and earn $17 billion in revenue,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.
“Ben A. Reitzes with Barclays Capital calculates that the LCD market will reach about 230 million units in calendar year 2012,” Hughes reports. “He suggested that Apple could, over time, capture 5 percent of that market and earn $17 billion in revenue, which would be almost 10 percent of his fiscal 2013 estimate of $183.1 billion for the company.”

Hughes reports, “With assumed gross margins of around 40 percent on a full-fledged Apple television set, he sees the company gaining about $5.40 earnings per share, or about 11 percent of his fiscal 2013 EPS estimate of $48.46.”
