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 first-quarter fiscal 2020 results reflected continued momentum in the Services segment and a rebound in iPhone sales, which grew on a year-over-year basis. Customer response was exceptional for new iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. Moreover, sales benefited from trade-in programs, which doubled on a year-over-year basis. Wearables’ top-line growth was aided by strong demand for Apple Watch and AirPod. AirPod sales benefited from the launch of AirPod Pro, which features active noise cancellation. Moreover, Apple Watch’s adoption rate grew rapidly. The solid adoption of Apple Watch is now helping the iPhone maker strengthen presence in the personal health monitor space.The Phase One deal between the United States and China is also a positive. Shares have outperformed the industry in the past year." (1/30/2020)
  • 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)
