What are Wall Street analysts saying about Apple stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Apple stock: 1. Maxim Group analysts commented, "Services GM q/q & y/y trajectory disclosure paint a positive picture, but product GM trend is then even more concerning. Installed base disclosures are on a y/y basis, failing to assuage fears China iPhone installed base is now in decline. Guidance indicates further deterioration in business fundamentals. Reiterate Hold rating and 12-month price target of $160." (1/30/2019) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Apple is expected to benefit from an expanded portfolio with the launch of new iPhones. Higher average selling price (ASP) and a loyal customer base are key catalysts. Moreover, robust demand for wearables is expected to drive results. As customers increase the usage of Apple Music and Apple Pay, Services revenues are expected to increase manifold. Further, the acquisition of Akonia Holographics, a manufacturer of lenses for AR glasses, strengthens our belief that Apple can foray into the wearable AR glasses space. Moreover, the company is testing self-driving vehicles and has 66 autonomous vehicles approved for testing in California. However, shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. The company continues to lose share in the smartphone market. Moreover, increasing competition from Chinese handset makers remains a concern." (11/12/2018) 3. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We believe this equates to ~6-7% of total new model production in the second half of 2018. We recently trimmed our iPhone XR shipment forecasts by 3 million units due to weak preorders. We are trimming our XR shipment estimates by another 2 million units and trimming our XS shipment estimates by 1 million units. After tracking sell -through data from various retail channels, we believe initial iPhone XR sales are weaker than we expected and weaker than XS/XS Max sales. We estimate global first weekend sales of the iPhone XR to be ~9 million units, 1 million units lower than sales of the the first weekend. Compared to the iPhone 8/8Plus, we believe XR sales are better, although the 8Plus faced some constraints and a smaller sell-through base."
