The article was written by Whitney Su, a Financial Analyst at I Know First.

Summary:

  • Despite concerns over the ongoing Trump-Xi trade war, we can expect Apple to operate as usual in Greater China (Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan), which accounts for nearly 20 percent Apple's total revenue.
  • Stock prices went up by more than 1% on 11 June 2019, closing at $194.99, after Foxconn's statement that it was capable of relocating iPhone production outside of China, if necessary. Stock prices have seen an upward trend since that announcement.
  • I give AAPL stock a bullish one-year forecast. No longer relying on iPhone sales to hold up the company, Apple is turning towards services instead, projecting increased service sector revenue of $14 billion per quarter by 2020.
  • Widespread popularity of the Apple Watch and AirPods spearheads revenue increases in Apple's "Other Products" sector. Innovative product development will continue to drive up AAPL stock prices.
