Apple Stock Forecast: AAPL Looking Ahead to the Calm After the ‘Storm’

Whitney
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.

Apple Stock Forecast: Why Apple Will Release A New Mac Mini This Year

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology – Senior Analyst at I Know First.

 Summary:

  • In spite of year-over-year declines in quarterly revenue and net income, Apple’s stock still jumped 5% during after-hours trading after its Jan. 29 ER.
  • iPhone’s quarterly revenue was down -15% Y/Y but Mac’s revenue was up 9% Y/Y. Revenue from iPad was up +17% and Services was up +19% Y/Y.
  • The strong sales growth of the iPad and Services segments convinced me that Apple will really release a new low-cost iPad Mini and iPad 9.7 inch this year.
  • Office productivity, mobile gaming, and watching streaming movies is still better on an iPad than on an iPhone.
  • Adobe will release an iPad/iOS native version of Photoshop CC this year. A $200 iPad Mini 5 with 7.9-inch screen is perfect for professional photo editing.

The infamous Apple logo

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has come a long way over the past few years. As it has doubled its stock price since summer 2016 and become the first trillion dollar company earlier this year, it has also seen some dips and is currently below the price it was at a year ago.

Apple is now down 33% from it’s all time high of 233.47 and has dropped below the trillion dollar mark once again.
