What are Wall Street analysts saying about Apple stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Apple stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Apple’s shares have outperformed the S&P 500 on a year-to-date basis. The company’s focus on strengthening the Services business and a strong slate of upcoming app releases, including its streaming service Apple TV+, are key catalysts. The company is also expected to benefit from the launch of latest iPhones, refreshed Macbook, iPad and Apple Watch product lines. Apple Arcade is likely to boost the company’s footprint in the video game space. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q4 earnings release. The company has positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. However, the ongoing U.S.-China trade war does not bode well for the company. Legal woes have increased due to a lawsuit from customers related to App Store charges. The company has also been accused of unfair practices by Spotify." (10/14/2019)
  • 2. Rosenblatt Securities analysts commented, "We believe there is less reward for owning Apple stock after the recent stock rebound from stock buybacks and stable second quarter guidance. We do not think Apple is a short (the company has plenty of cash and a meaningful stock buy back program), however, we believe Apple will face fundamental deterioration over the next 6-12 months. We downgrade and maintain our $150 price target. Adding to our Sell thesis, we believe new iPhone sales will be disappointing, iPad sales growth will slow in the second half of 2019, other product sales growth, such as the HomePod, AirPod and iWatch, may not be meaningful to support total revenue growth. After strong service revenue growth over the last 4-6 quarters and the launch of Apple Music and news, we believe service revenue growth will also decelerate." (7/8/2019)
  • 3. 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)
