Apple Stock Prediction: Using Flexible OLED Display Is A Killer Idea For The Apple iPad

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’s management likes the high-margin revenue stream from the iPad Pro and its pricey accessories.
  • Noted Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo is predicting that the fiscal 2018 (October 2017 to September 2018) versions of the iPad Pro will come with flexible AMOLED touchscreen displays.
  • A flexible or bendable version of a 12.9-inch iPad Pro is certainly a differentiating feature that could help it compete better with Microsoft’s Surface 2-in-1 computers.
  • The long-term future of the iPad Pro requires it to come up with unique features like bendable touchscreen displays to remain attractive.
  • Samsung’s flexible OLED display business could surge if it gets inside Apple’s tablets and phones. The rest of the industry will imitate Apple’s lead in adopting flexible OLED.

Apple Stock Forecast: Go Long AAPL Before The iPhone 7 Is Launched

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’s stock price performance is dependent on iPhone sales. The upcoming release of the iPhone 7 next month is again its biggest stock mover.
  • I opine that even without a major upgrade/improvements, the iPhone 7 will outperform the sales of the iPhone 6s.
  • The majority of iPhone loyalists are still unaware that Tim Cook has shifted to a 3-year refresh cycle for the iPhone.
  • Most iPhone 6 users who ignored the iPhone 6s are therefore likely to upgrade their unit to the iPhone 7 this year.
  • A better-than-iPhone 6s sales performance from the iPhone 7 will boost AAPL’s stock.
  • I Know First's algorithm is currently bullish on AAPL
