1. Apple will continue to deliver double digit growth in sales in tablets and smartphones, thanks to the iPad Mini and iPhone 5, enjoying a bumper Xmas 2012 quarter. Expect to see the share price back over $600 on the back of this, and one "wow" innovation in 2013 – Apple iTV anyone?

2. Facebook will figure out mobile, helping them deliver 10%+ growth in sales, and getting the share price back up, though not to the heady hights of the flotation.

3. Sainsbury's will continue to gain share in the supermarket wars, thanks to a big idea which is right for the times ("Live Well for Less"), the innovative Price Match promotional campaign and a revitalisation of

their own brand offer.
