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 Services segment has become the new cash cow for the company. The segment is expected to grow strongly driven by increasing adoption of Apple Music & Apple Pay. Further, the higher ASP of iPhone X is also expected to boost the top-line growth. Going ahead, we believe Apple’s foray into fast-growing technologies like autonomous vehicle, artificial intelligence (AI) & AR/VR will drive growth. Nevertheless, lower shipments of iPhone X due to lack of demand can hurt top-line, particularly due to significant competition in most of its operating markets. The rise of feature-rich smartphones at a much cheaper price also remains a major headwind. Shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis." (7/11/2018)
  • 2. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "07:1704/19/1804/1907:1704/19/1807:17Apple (AAPL) could outline plans of incremental $100B share repo, says Wells Fargo" (4/24/2018)
  • 3. Maxim Group analysts commented, "Normalized iPhone revenue sell-out up ~17% y/y; our ASP analysis suggests iPhone X represented 20% of the December quarter iPhone mix. Guidance embeds iPhone unit & revenue sell-out accelerates, even on a normalized basis. Bottom line power of iPhone X still not evident, but we continue to also model erosion of the iPhone X price premium in FY19, leading us to continue to utilize normalized valuation. Continue to utilize a normalized earnings framework, though increasing 12- month price target to $210, from $204, due to a lower tax rate than we had assumed new tax law would enable." (2/2/2018)
