What are Wall Street analysts saying about Apple stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Apple stock:
  • 1. Fundamental Research analysts commented, "Fundamental Research Corp has issued a report entitled “Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) Q2 Will be Tough to Beat” and dated April 29, 2021. The full report is now at www.researchfrc.com." (4/29/2021)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Apple is benefiting from continued momentum in the Services segment, driven by a robust performance of App Store, Apple Music, video and cloud services. Moreover, demand remains healthy for other Apple devices including iPad, Mac and Wearables. Although Apple didn’t provide any guidance due to uncertainties triggered by the coronavirus pandemic, it expects the top-line to grow in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Apple’s near-term prospects are bright, driven by new iPhones that support 5G, revamped iPad and Mac line-up of devices, health-focused Apple Watch 6 and robust growth in the Services business. Moreover, a solid balance sheet and strong cash flow generating ability are key catalysts. However, increasing scrutiny and legal woes over App Store are headwinds. Notably, shares have underperformed the S&P 500 year to date." (3/30/2021)
