Expect ‘wow’ product from Apple: Pro

Going against the Apple trend

Twitter has filed for an IPO. Barbara Marcin, Gabelli Dividend Growth Fund, explains why she is going against the momentum stocks and following Apple. And Mike Khouw, Dash Financial Group, weighs in on the Twitter filing.

Apple still benefits from a culture of innovation and will see more successes ahead, Barbara Marcin of Gabelli Funds said Thursday.

"I don't think anyone going into Apple right now is going there for momentum or good feelings," she said. "Certainly, I think we're getting a buying opportunity.

"The reason Carl Icahn says it's a no-brainer is because of the valuation. If you take the cash out of the share price, you know, it's selling at nine times earnings, and I think it's a tremendous value here."

Earlier this week, billionaire investor Icahn said that he had bought "quite a bit" of Apple stock on a dip following disappointment over two new iPhone models.

On CNBC's "Fast Money," Macrin said that Apple was still a quality organization.

Goldman leading Twitter IPO?
CNBC's Kayla Tausche reports Goldman Sach is the lead underwriter for Twitter IPO. It is likely more banks will join in as social media site submits the official forms.

"I think this company is the same company it was a couple of years ago, and I appreciate that some people think with the loss of Steve Jobs it's not exactly the same," she said. "But the company has a culture of innovation, and I think we see that with the new releases, and I think we're going to see exciting new products, possibly something wearable."

Macrin acknowledged that skeptics joked that Apple would release a product much like Dick Tracy's two-way wristwatch communicator.

"Until you see it, we don't know," she said. "It's like the iPad and the Mini. Until you use something, you don't really know how you're going to use it."

Macrin also said that she believed Apple was working to get its next big offering "right," which is why it hasn't yet released a new innovation.

"We'll see, but I think that we're going to see a 'wow' product over the next year or so," she said.
