FORTUNE -- Despite widespread economic turmoil on the Continent, Apple's (AAPL) sales in Europe are expected to grow a whopping 32.3% year over year in the second quarter of 2012, according to a report issued Friday by FactSet.com.

Of the 10 largest companies in the S&P 500 by market cap, only two others are expected to see any growth in Europe worth writing home about: Intel (INTC) and Coca Cola (KO), at 4.5% and 2.1%, respectively.
