Apple:

Apple's AAPL revenue was $59 billion against estimates of about $52 billion, with a 19% beat of iPhone expectations.

Some iPhone delays are expected for the usually strong September quarter, but the solid reported quarter reflects that demand is strong even during the pandemic and store closures. iPhone revenue grew for the year. iPhone demand and China has rebounded significantly.

And following Qualcomm's QCOM strong 5G guide this week for the full year, most investors are comfortable trusting the multi-year 5G growth cycle is intact.

Services revenue was just over $13 billion, and grew 15% year-over-year. This was not a resounding result against expectations, which were rising as stay-at-home orders were a positive for app store activity.

The gross margin expanded to 67% from 64% in the trailing 12-month period, helping boost the earnings per share figure.

Investors had already been well aware of the higher margin services business. Apple may need to prove itself more on services to sustain its current valuation, although the somewhat breath-taking iPhone results did enable analysts to lift their price targets.

Earnings per share was $2.58, above estimates of $2.05, with the actual results up 25%.

Most analysts are lifting 2021 earnings estimates and therefore their price targets. The stock rose 7.5% to $413 a share. It's now trading at about 27 times 2021 EPS estimates, slightly high for where it has traded for most of this year.

With lifted estimates, the multiple will fall back some, but some would say the stock is fully priced. Catalysts to move the stock would be earnings growth for the near future and continued strength in services, wearables and 5G.

Apple Said to Start Producing 5G iPhone from Mid-Sep

Apple (AAPL.US) will start producing 5G iPhone from mid-September after having overcome travel curbs and other coronavirus snags, the Nikkei reported.

This meant that its production delay was narrowed to just weeks instead of months as earlier expected.

How Apple (AAPL) Could Get Cut in Half

by Jody Chudley

Apple by itself is now worth as much as the combined market valuations of every single stock in the FTSE 100 Index.

Over the past 10 years, Apple’s valuation has bounced between 10 and 20 times trailing earnings. Today, the company trades for almost 40 times earnings.

Has anything really changed with Apple’s business that would justify its earnings valuation jumping from between 10 and 20 times earnings to 40 times earnings?

Apple is simply too big to grow that rapidly from here.
