Apple Stock Forecast: Impressive Q3 EPS/Revenue Numbers Made Apple A Strong Buy

motek 1The Apple stock forecast 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

  • Apple’s stock is +14.4% since my December 21, 2020, take-your-profits recommendation.
  • I am AAPL as a buy because of its big beat on Q3 numbers.
  • For its third quarter, Apple’s EPS was $1.30 and its revenue was $81.4 billion. These figures top Wall Street’s estimates of $1.01 EPS on sales of $73.5 billion.
  • Stronger sales and growing net income fortify Apple’s eight consecutive years of dividend growth.
  • The more infectious variant of the COVID-19 virus is an indirect tailwind to Apple’s Services business. The Services segment’s Q3 revenue was $17.5 billion (+32% Y/Y).

Apple Stock Forecast for 2021: Take Your Profits On Apple

motek 1The Apple stock forecast 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

  • Apple’s stock has risen +46% since my June 21 buy recommendation. We should now reap our gains.
  • AAPL’s TTM P/E of over 39 makes it vulnerable to market emotions. A slow-down in its Services segment could compel investors to turn bearish.
  • The robust revenue from iOS games has a headwind from cloud gaming platform’s new ability to bypass the iOS app store. Publishers can make PWA versions to bypass Apple’s app store commission.
  • Apple’s tactic of blocking apps that do not process payments through its 30%/15% commission rule on its iOS app store has a headwind from browser-only cloud gaming.
  • Google Stadia is now available to iOS device owners via Google Chrome or Apple’s Safari browsers.

Apple Stock Forecast: Raising My Apple Price Target to $388

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

  • Apple handily beat the $330 price target I gave it last may 10.  I’m therefore raising my one-year PT to $388.
  • There’s a global pandemic and yet AAPL touts a year-to-date price return of +19.09%. Its 1-year price return is +76.74%. 
  • Investors are bullish on the strong rumor that Apple will use its ARM-based processors on some of its next-generation Mac computer products.
  • ARM-based Macs can help boost the computer segment of Apple. This will help further reduce Apple’s heavy reliance on iPhones sales.
  • An ARM-based MacBook, iMac, and Mac Mini would be cheaper than Intel x86-based Apple computers. Catering to more sectors of buyers is good for Apple.

AAPL Stock Forecast: Why Apple Deserves A Price Target of $330

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:

  • The average one-year price target for Apple’s stock at TipRanks is only $319.86. Apple deserves a price target of at least $330.
  • Apple is still hiring. Factories in China are back to normal operations. The ongoing pandemic is no longer a disruption to Apple’s business.
  • Buying AAPL is still judicious. This stock is reasonably priced and has obvious long-term upside potential.
  • Apple’s affluent customer pool can endure COVID-19’s financial headwind. Many of them will still be able to afford a $399 or $1,500 iPhone.
  • The big surge in video game activities during this pandemic is a big tailwind for AAPL. Apple is also one of the biggest paid streaming entertainment companies.

Apple Stock Forecast: Why Apple’s Stock Will Again Breach $325

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:

  • I accurately predicted last January 12 that Apple’s stock deserved a 90-day price target of $325. The stock posted a record 52-week high of $327.85 on January 27.
  • If it were not for the COVID-19 pandemic panic, AAPL would still be trading above $325 today.
  • My fearless forecast now is that China’s re-opening of factories and retail stores will eventually compel investors to again rally behind AAPL.
  • The COVID-19 problem that threatened the supply-chain/logistics cycle of Apple is no longer valid. Retail stores outside China are closed but online sales of iPhones/iPads/Macs will continue.
