Apple Stock Predictions

Summary:
  • Apple has toppled Wal-mart to become the second largest online retailer in America. It goes to show that e-commerce could be done on decent-margins.
  • Bezos’ revenue-growth-first-before-profit mantra is not the only path toward success in e-commerce.
  • Steve Jobs’ successor, Tim Cook is also the second-highest compensated CEO in the U.S. The top-compensated CEO of 2016 was Marc Lore, CEO of Wal-Mart’s U.S. E-commerce business.
  • Tim Cook should be commended for making Apple an exemplary model for e-commerce. Unlike Amazon which specializes in thin-margin products, Apple sells pricey products online.
  • Direct selling online is more beneficial to Apple’s gross margins.
