2016: Apple launches the AirPods

2017: Apple sells 16 million AirPods

2018: Apple sells 35 million AirPods

2019: Apple sells 50-60 million AirPods

2020: Apple projected to sell 100+ million AirPods

100 million AirPods x $200 (average price for all models) = $20 billion x 35% net profit = $7 billion x 25 P/E = $175 billion

…if AirPods were a stand alone company it might be worth $175+ billion and that’s using a 25 P/E multiple which is conservative for a company growing revenues/profits by more than 50%

$175+ billion market cap would make AirPods the 32nd largest company in the U.S.
