Apple Stock Forecast: Why AAPL Price Can Hit $290

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 stock price of Apple is now more than 18% higher than it was during my September 19 buy recommendation.
  • I am still endorsing AAPL as a reasonable value play investment. My 90-day price target for AAPL is $290.
  • Apple will get a decent tailwind from Black Friday and Christmas shopping sales events. Entry-level iPhones are still more attractive than flagship Android phones.
  • The Second tailwind is the release of the new MacBook Pro. It should help Apple sell more than 5.3 million Mac computers this last quarter of 2019.
  • Stronger iOS hardware sales also increase the growth of Apple’s $12.5 billion quarterly revenue from its Services segment.

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: There's A $100 Billion Reason To Stay Long Apple

Summary:

  • Staying long AAPL is safe and smart. Apple has tons of cash and the revenue from its Services segment is growing.
  • Apple has allocated $100 billion to share repurchase. With this massive budget for share buyback, AAPL is likely to post a new 52-week high.
  • Apple will also increase its dividend payments by 16%
  • My 12-month PT for Apple stock is $188. The TipRanks-tracked Wall Street analysts have a median 12-month PT of $190.79 for Apple.
  • The iPhone business will remain healthy for many years to come. The very expensive iPhone X remains Apple’s best-selling smartphone 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:

  • The new 9.7-inch iPad 2018 is not only intended for the education market. It can also appeal to home and business/enterprise users.
  • Apple equipping the $299/$329 iPad with A10 Fusion CPU/GPU also makes it the best gaming tablet.
  • The 6-core PowerVR GPU of the quad-core A10 Fusion SoC is almost as good as the A11 Bionic’s Apple-made GPU.
  • Apple is taking a risk. The $299/$329 9.7-inch iPad might cannibalize future sales of premium $649++ iPad Pro models.
  • On the other hand, Apple could likely increase the total addressable market of its tablets by catering to price-conscious customers.
