Topeka Capital's Brian White reiterated his Buy rating and $1,111 price target on Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) Monday following news that the company sold 2 million iPhone 5 in China during the opening weekend.

"In our view, this represents a big print for Apple and the first time the Company ever issued a post-launch press release for iPhone sales in China," White said. "While the iPhone 5 is selling well in China, there has been growing concern about U.S. demand as Walmart (NYSE: WMT) announced on Friday that it will sell the 16GB iPhone 5 with a 2-year contract at a discounted price of just $127 (vs. $199 at Apple); however, we believe this could prove to be marketing ploy to drive holiday traffic."
