Recipe: iPad Bouillabaisse

A tech analyst from Ticonderoga told Barron’s that Apple ($AAPL) was THE stock to own this Christmas (target $450).  In my piece yesterday (iChristmas), I talked about how 31% of kids wanted an iPad as their electronic gift – the leading choice in the category.

While many agree that this holiday shopping season will belong to Apple and the iPad, there is a sense that they’ve already missed it with the stock at $314 a share (a few bucks off the all-time high).  While I won’t agree or disagree with that view, I thought it might be helpful to present the recipe for the iPad (and other tablets) – the various semiconductor and component ingredients that go into the stew.

With some help from UMB TechInsights and my new pal Buy On The Dip, an illustration and a tablet/smartphone ingredient list below.  These aren’t recommendations, just a starting point for those looking to play iChristmas.  Happy Homework!
