MU Stock Predictions: Micron Can Still Hit A New 52-week High This Year, Maybe $43

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

MU Stock Predictions

Summary:

  • Micron’s stock posted a new 52-week high price of $38.46 on September 28.
  • The big beat on Q4 ER numbers last September 26 is fueling a bull rush for Micron. I am betting MU can hit $42 before 2017 ends.
  • The short supply and high prices for DRAM and NAND will persist to 2018. Micron therefore has more upside potential. DRAM accounts for 66% of Micron. NAND is 30% of revenue.
  • An iPhone 8 Plus teardown confirmed that Apple is still using Micron mobile DRAM.
  • Micron is also a beneficiary of the high prices and tight supply of discrete GPUs caused by crypto-currency mining.

Google Stock Forecast: Why Google Might Buy HTC Corporation’s Phone Business

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

Google Stock Forecast

Summary:

  • Rumor has it that Google’s purchase of HTC Corporation’s phone business is near completion. This Google move makes perfect sense.
  • My takeaway is that Google needs to acquire HTC Corporation’s phone business to protect its future Pixel Android phones.
  • HTC is the manufacturing partner of Pixel Android phones. Pixel is Google’s flagship brand for its own Android phones.
  • Buying HTC’s phone business also gives Google the factories and expertise to manufacture high-end Pixel and mid-range/entry-level Android One phones.
  • Google needs to produce and sell its own stock Android OS-only handsets to help reduce the heavy fragmentation of the Android ecosystem.

Intel Stock Forecast: Intel Has A Loyal Customer In Apple

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.

Intel Has A Loyal Customer In Apple

Summary:

  • The top PC and server hardware vendors have announced their support of AMD’s Ryzen and EPYC processors.
  • AMD has an exclusive supply deal on discrete GPUs for Mac and MacBooks. Apple has so far stayed quiet about Ryzen, Threadripper, and EPYC.
  • Intel obviously has a very loyal processor customer in Apple. Ryzen may find some support among Windows/Linux computer builders but the Mac remains Intel Inside forever.
  • Apple is the world’s no.4 PC vendor. The long-term prosperity of Intel on desktop processors is safe as long as Apple keeps ignoring AMD’s new Ryzen processors.
  • I rate INTC as a buy. I Know First still has positive near and long-term algorithmic forecasts for INTC.

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

Apple Stock Forecast

Summary:

  • The September 12 product launch event of Apple will reportedly unveil the iPhone 8 and iPhone X smartphones.
  • The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will likely be priced below $800 each. The iPhone X will go for $1,000 or more.
  • Investors should expect that the most expensive model, the iPhone X will find tens of millions of buyers. I won’t even be surprised if it outsells the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
  • Coming up with a more expensive handset raises the average selling prices of iPhones. It can increase Apple’s operating margins.
  • I Know First has a bullish one-year algorithmic market trend forecast for AAPL.

QCOM Stock Analysis: Qualcomm And Apple Will Likely Settle Their Patents Licensing Dispute

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

QCOM Stock Analysis

Summary:
  • Apple sued Qualcomm last January for allegedly overcharging on patent licensing fees. Apple also stopped paying royalty fees to Qualcomm earlier this year.
  • In retaliation, Qualcomm sued in May four contract manufacturer partners of Apple, Foxconn, Compal, Pegatron, and Wistron. Qualcomm has also sued Apple in the U.S. federal court and the ITC.
  • The ITC or the U.S. International Trade Commission announced last August 8 that it will proceed with the patent infringement suit filed by Qualcomm against Apple.
  • Apple settled its patent dispute with Nokia. Nokia filed suit earlier this year aiming to ban sales of iPhones in key countries. Apple made an upfront payment of $2 billion to settle with Nokia.
  • I expect Apple to also settle out of court with Qualcomm before 2017 ends. It is always cheaper to pay patents licensing fees than risk a court-ordered import ban on iPhones.

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

NTDOY Stock Outlook

Summary:
  • Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway owns around 135 million shares of Apple. Berkshire’s bet on Apple just appreciated more than $1 billion in one day after Apple’s earnings report.
  • Apple’s market valuation rose by $48.1 billion after it stock price shot up post-earnings. Apple’s valuation is now more than $819 billion.
  • My fearless forecast is that as long as Warren Buffett stays long AAPL, the stock could hit $165 before 2017 ends. There is resilient demand for iPhones.
  • Buffett’s faith in Apple is a shield against those sell-side analysts pessimistic over the rumored delay in iPhone 8 production.
  • AAPL has negative short and intermediate-term algorithmic forecasts. However, I Know First has a very bullish one-year algorithmic prediction for AAPL.
