  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Apple shares have outperformed the S&P 500 year to date. The company is benefiting from continued momentum in the Services segment, driven by a robust performance of App Store, Apple Music, video, and cloud services. Moreover, Apple devices also continued to gain traction among enterprises, particularly healthcare providers. The company expects fiscal fourth-quarter iPhone sales to benefit from strong demand for iPhone SE. Further, Apple stated that sale of new iPhones will begin a few weeks later against the usual late September. It also expects iPad and Mac to post strong year-over-year growth but lower economic activity will hurt AppleCare and advertising businesses. Moreover, increasing scrutiny and legal woes over App Store is a headwind. The company didn’t provide any guidance due to the pandemic-triggered uncertainty." (9/29/2020)
