Apple Inc. (AAPL)

Apple Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries provide products and services including design, manufactures, markets mobile communication, media devices, personal computers, portable digital music players, and a variety of related software, services, peripherals, networking solutions, and third-party digital content and applications.

On 30th of April 2019, Apple Inc. reported a better-than-expected earning on its Q2 period. It posted revenue of $58 billion, a quarterly profit of nearly $11.6 billion, and EPS of $2.46 which exceed analyst estimation of $57 billion revenue and $2.36 EPS.

On a year-over-year basis, there is a decrease in both revenue as well as EPS. But it is expected due to the slower demand for new iPhones.

This quarter strong result was led by strong performance from wearables, iPads as well as continued growth from service segment. iPad revenue jumped by more than 20% year over year, while service revenue reach $11.5 billion, setting an all-time quarterly record.

In the coming years, Apple will release more subscription service to increase source of revenue, e.g. Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple TV+ as well as Apple Card. It is expected that strong growth in the service segment will continued into the next few quarters.

And it is also a good sign for investor that Apple is not solely relying on iPhone as main source of revenue, services and wearable devices are having a significant part as well.

Given the steady growth we are expecting in the coming quarters, It is recommended to purchase at $208, target price $243, cut loss if drop below $195.

Why Apple Stock Could Drop Below $100 by the End of 2019

by Larry Ramer

Services revenue increased 16% year-over-year last quarter, down from the 19% YoY gain in the previous quarter.

Q1 is much seasonally stronger than Q2, and growth will inevitably decelerate.

Apple’s Product revenue dropped by a bit less than $5 billion year-over-year, driven a great deal by the iPhone revenue decline and a bit by a YoY Mac sales slump, while Services revenues increased $1.6 billion YoY.

Intel is going to be bailed out. And their saving grace is a tech king.

As reported by Yahoo Finance on Wednesday, Apple will be buying out Intel's 5G smartphone modem business for a price of $1 billion.

It was recently revealed that Intel was drowning, losing $1 billion annually on its modem operations .

And it looks like Apple has been ready to pounce and take advantage for some time.

The market powerhouse has been eyeing the assets, and it makes complete sense considering they also recently hired Intel's 5G chief, Messay Amerga, and Umashankar Thyagarajan, a project engineer and senior director on the same 5G team.

What does this mean for Apple?

Well, they will now be in excellent position to start producing their own 5G modems for iPhones, instead of continuing to rely on Qualcomm for it's hardware.

And his will not only create incredible benefits for Apple, but for the 5G market boom as a whole.

5G could quite possibly become the greatest wealth creator in American history.

When a tech titan like Apple wants to get their hands on something, you know it's going to be huge... and insanely profitable.

It's not just about changing how smartphones operate. It's going to transform everything- cars, computers, streets, homes, schools, banks... there are endless possibilities.

Essentially, it's going to change the world.

Apple profit falls by 13pc to US$10b, China sales slump eases

Apple’s iPhone sales are still sputtering while the company tries to offset the decline by milking more money from digital services such as music.

The latest evidence of the iPhone’s waning popularity had been expected. Even so, the confirmation in Tuesday’s fiscal third-quarter earnings report underscored the challenges facing a company that has been riding the smartphone revolution for the past decade.

The iPhone’s downturn is the main reason Apple’s profit for the April-June period fell by 13 percent to US$10 billion.

The good news is Apple has several ways it can still make money from the 900 million iPhones in use today. Besides selling new models to current iPhone owners after the current devices eventually wear out, Apple has positioned itself to make billions of dollars more from music, video and gaming subscriptions, maintenance plans and commissions from apps selling their own wares on iPhones.

The bad news is that Apple has still been relying on the iPhone for more than half its revenue so this year, and the company hasn’t proven it can be as adept peddling digital services as it has been making sleek devices.

For instance, Apple’s 4-year old music streaming service still lags Spotify. Apple is preparing to launch a video streaming service more than a decade after Netflix pioneered the concept.

And a recently opened U.S. Justice Department investigation is expected to look into whether Apple unfairly favors its own services and gouges others through its app store, raising the specter of changes that could further depress its revenue.

“Apple has become a victim of its own success and there also appears to be a lack of urgency,” Chatham Road Partners analyst Colin Gillis said. “Apple is still the iPhone company and it may always end up being the iPhone company.”

The lingering doubts hanging over Apple are one reason why Apple’s stock price remains well below its peak of US$233.47 reached last October, even as the rest of the market has soared to record highs. The company’s shares gained by 4 percent to US$217.55 in extended trading after the release of its numbers for the April-June period.

The rally may have stemmed from another encouraging sign that emerged in the quarterly report.

Apple’s total sales in China fell by 4 percent in the quarter compared with a year ago, after plunging 25 percent during the first half of the company’s fiscal year.

That improvement eased fears that the Trump administration’s trade war in China might trigger a consumer boycott of Apple’s products in the country in retaliation.

“We couldn’t be happier with the progress,” Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook said during a Tuesday conference call. He credited both Apple’s own price cuts and economic stimulus programs rolled out by China’s government to counteract the effects of U.S. tariffs.

Worldwide revenue from iPhones during the quarter totaled US$26 billion, a 12 percent decrease from the same time last year. It marks the third straight quarter of eroding iPhone sales, something that has only happened once before.

Apple is forecasting its total revenue for the July-September period will fall from last year, a sign that it is bracing for yet another drop in iPhone sales. That’s particularly striking because Apple typically gets a big boost from the release of new iPhone models in late September.

But the mid-range projection of US$62.5 billion of revenue for the period was better than the US$60.9 billion anticipated by analysts, providing another sign of hope for investors betting on Apple’s resilience.

Even with the iPhone in decline, Apple remains a financial powerhouse. Total revenue grew by 1 percent from last year to US$53.9 billion.

The services division remains the biggest area of growth, with revenue surging by 13 percent from last year to US$11.5 billion in the past quarter.

A CLASSIC 'BAD TO LESS BAD' RALLY FROM THIS ELECTRONICS GIANT

Today's chart shows a big-name company that moved past some bad news...

As regular readers know, you can make impressive gains when the market unfairly punishes a stock. Savvy investors can make big gains even if shares only return to normal. Steve calls this approach "bad to less bad" trading. Today, we have a perfect example...

With a market cap above $1 trillion, Apple (AAPL) is one of the world's most valuable companies. And many folks love its Mac computers... its iPad tablets... and, most of all, its iPhone smartphones. So when iPhone sales missed expectations last year, investors quickly fled.

But the latest model's lower starting price and new features have brought customers flocking back... And recent reports say Apple will increase its iPhone production by as much as 10% as a result.

Investors are quickly returning to Apple as well... Shares are up about 60% from their January lows, recovering to a new 52-week high.

While they're still below their all-time highs, folks who bought early this year have seen massive gains as Apple got "less bad"...

FOLKS STILL LINE UP FOR THIS ACCLAIMED ELECTRONICS BRAND

Today, we're checking in on one of the world's most recognizable brands...

We love investing in companies with strong, popular brands. Customers stay incredibly loyal to products with a name they know and trust – and the companies can usually charge a premium price for them. Today's company is no different...

Apple (AAPL) is a $1 trillion-plus consumer-electronics giant. It's the world's largest company by market cap. And its products need no introduction... It boasts the iPhone (smartphone), iPad (tablet), and MacBook (computer).

Consumers race to buy these products every time a new edition is released – like the iPhone 11, most recently. That's a great way to churn out huge, reliable sales... In the latest quarter, Apple reported sales of $64 billion, up 2% from the same period a year ago.

As you can see in today's chart, shares of AAPL have charged higher this year. The stock has roughly doubled from its January bottom, and it recently hit a fresh all-time high. As long as Apple's brand is known and loved around the world, this stock should continue higher...

Apple AAPL

Apple is an obvious choice given its blowout Q1 2020 results and stellar year-plus run. AAPL’s size will help it withstand China-based uncertainty and its $207 billion in cash on hand will see it continue to buy back billions of dollars worth of its own stock, especially if it slides on virus-focused fears.

The firm also returned to growth in its vital iPhone unit, with sales up roughly 8%, driven by a strong showing from the iPhone 11.

And analysts expect this fall’s iPhone 12 will feature some of Apple’s most game-changing updates in years, including its first 5G offering.

Wall Street was also pleased with the continued expansion of services and wearables, up roughly 18% and 37%, respectively. AAPL’s goal is to generate more revenue from its 1.5 billion active devices.

Apple Music, Netflix NFLX-challenger Apple TV+, its app store, news service, and others will likely drive growth for years to come.

Apple said on its earnings call that it hit 480 million paid subscriptions and now hopes to hit 600 million before the end of calendar 2020, up from its previously stated goal of 500 million.

Apple is currently a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), pays a dividend, and has seen its fiscal 2020 and 2021 earnings estimates surge since it reported. AAPL’s valuation is stretched, alongside the S&P 500. But our Zacks estimates call for its 2020 revenues to surge 9.3% and another 8% in 2021. Plus, its adjusted earnings are set to pop 15.5% and 14% during this same stretch.
