What are analysts saying about Apple stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Apple stock:
- 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)
- FBN Securities analysts commented, "In summary, we believe that investors should be buying shares of AAPL after the report today as iPhone returned to growth, services continues to be a revenue and GM engine, the iPhone 8 (rumored to be with OLED, glass casing, and wireless charging) is expected to come out later this year (though we would not use the term 'supercycle' like some have to describe this cycle), and valuation is attractive. On the latter, please note that shares of AAPL are now trading at only 12.5x our F2018 estimate, and the company continues to generate strong FCF." (2/1/2017)
- Bank of America Corp analysts commented, "We raise our revenue and ASP assumptions on the iPhone 8 but take a more normalized multi-year view on the iPhone 8 cycle (unlike the iPhone 6 cycle of 37% growth followed by 8% unit decline). Given our expectation that Apple will introduce three models (7S, 7S+, 8) this fall (see our Asia iPhone Supply Chain note), we expect demand for 8 (OLED) will outstrip supply for a longer term based on OLED panel supply as well as strong upgrade demand from the installed base." (1/19/2017)
According to Zacks Investment Research, "Apple fortunes remain tied to its flagship offering, the iPhone, which at present faces growth issues. However, Apple expects iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to be significant growth drivers, even in regions like China where growth has remained muted for a while. Meanwhile, Apple remains focused on increasing its market share in India. A loyal customer base and a strong ecosystem are the other positives.Plus, the company continues to see robust growth in its services revenues, especially with regard to Apple Music and App Store. Launch of a refreshed line of Macs should also boost its topline. However, in the near term, macroeconomic headwinds in some key regions amid increasing competition remain a concern. Over the past one year, shares of Apple have underperformed the broader market.Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s first quarter fiscal 2017 earnings release." (1/11/2017)
Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "Super Hit," (9/15/2016)
