iPod and iTunes. 11 Million iPods were shipped lats quarter, generating 1.67 Billion in revenue. Apple has 70% of the entire MP3 player market.

Putting it all together, Apple earned $1.26 fully diluted last quarter. Guidance for Q4 is between 1.06 and 1.35. Conservatively, despite the recession, the company should easily earn 6$ in 2009, putting the 2009 forward PE at around 16, and the forward P/Enterprise Value at around 10. Amazing.
