18:23 EDTT, VZ, S, AAPLApple more than ever has become an iPhone company, Barron's reports
The bigger iPhone gets in terms of popularity, the more power Apple (AAPL) will have over carriers, manufacturers, and even competitors and consumers, Barron's reports. Having used the iPhone to lure new customers for many years, Verizon Communications (VZ), AT&T (T) and Sprint-Nextel (S) all reported results in the last two weeks that seemed to show iPhone subsidies taking a toll on their profits, according to analysts. They might at some point just walk away from this 'crazy circus', Barron's Technology Trade columnist Tiernan Ray says. It will also become harder for Apple to keep repeating phenomenal success. Amid those concerns, Apple stock has seen some eventful trading. Jefferies & Co.'s Peter Misek, who has a Buy rating on Apple -- and an $800 target -- on Friday wrote to clients that the next unveiling, the "iPhone 5," will be "enormous," with Apple intending to build as many as 50M- 60M phones in September for sale in October.
