What are analysts saying about Apple stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Apple stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Apple’s revenues have got a boost due to increase in iPhone demand caused by the launch of iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Also, “Services” revenues, which include App store, Apple Music and Apple Pay have been growing with App store sales in December alone topping $3 billion. Going ahead, management expects to double the revenues from this segment in the next four years. Plus, the buzz surrounding iPhone 8, which is already labeled a super cycle should allay investors fear about iPhone sales trajectory. Meanwhile, Apple remains focused on increasing its market share in India. Over the past one year, shares of Apple have outperformed the broader market. However, macroeconomic headwinds in some key regions, most importantly in China along with increasing competition remain a concern. Estimates have remained stable ahead of the upcoming earnings release. " (4/24/2017)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "When we put a $150 target price on AAPL last March, some said we were crazy. Now AAPL is within 6% of our target price, and we raise our FY18 estimates and Target Price to $165, and lower our rating from Strong Buy to Buy. AAPL remains our top stock pick owing to RAPID: a) Recurring revenue streams imply higher earnings growth and valuations; b) Arms dealer in a rising tide; c) Pure play on strong mobile growth; d) Inexpensive, especially because it has higher profit margins than DIS and CBS and higher asset efficiency than FB and EXPE, but much lower valuations; and e) Downside protection from its 'sequel' strategy, excess cash, dividends and share repurchases. AAPL's GAAP FY18E P/E is 13.9x, which ignores AAPL's excess cash. Adjusting for AAPL's excess cash, its P/E is 11.6-12.8x (depending on tax rate)." (3/24/2017)
  • 3. Royal Bank of Canada analysts commented, "There has been increased focus on AAPL's services business over last 12+ months and recently the company noted that they intend to double the business in the next 4 years ($48-50B target by FY20). While we think the growth of install base and replacement cycles remain key drivers for AAPL stock, the services model could provide several tailwinds ' 1) Gross-margin annual tailwind of 40-60bps, 2) Accelerate ARPU as AAPL is better able to monetize iOS platform and 3) Create a better valuation narrative for AAPL. Maintain OP but increasing our target to $155 from $140 as we see three distinct catalysts ahead: 1) Capital allocation and cash repatriation, 2) iPhone 8 cycle and 3) Services tailwind." (3/15/2017)
  • 4. Drexel Hamilton analysts commented, "We believe the earlier than typical Chinese New Year in 2017 negatively impacted January and thus sales were helped a bit in February." (3/10/2017)
  • 5. BGC Financial analysts commented, "Apple reported December quarter results that had plenty of chinks but did not show a meaningful decline to support a negative thesis on the stock. Our issues with Apple's dependence on the sale of iPhone hardware to drive results are still intact, but a catalyst for a meaningful pull back in the stock has passed in our view and we change our rating to HOLD from SELL. Regarding the results, The iPhone drove 69% of total December revenue, the highest contribution since the December 2014 quarter, pushing Apple shares approximately back to the level they were trading at two years ago. While there was enthusiasm for the quarterly results, the enthusiasm is driven by our view of low expectations for the company.." (2/1/2017)
