Does the Galaxy Note 9 Really Hold a Candle to the iPhone X?

“If you don’t have a competitive advantage, don’t compete”

-Jack Welch

Last week, Samsung, Apple’s biggest competitor, unveiled the brand new Galaxy Note 9. Coming in at the same price as the iPhone, the Note 9 looks to snatch Apple sales.

But what does the Note 9 have in store? Firstly, the screen difference is massive. The Note has a 6.4 inch screen screen, which, when compared to the iPhone X’s 5.8 inch screen, is incomprehensible.

Remember the times of the Galaxy Note’s battery exploding? Well, hopefully those days are over as the Apple competitor adds a 4,000mAh battery, compared to the iPhone X’s 2,716mAh battery.

With all this brand new information about the Note, 9to5Mac decided to put the phones to the test and decide which one was more powerful. What they found was phenomenal for Apple: the iPhone X was able to outperform the Galaxy Note 9 in overall performance, which has a Geekbench 4 testing of 8,876, compared to the iPhones 10,357.  Not only that, but the iPhone won the graphics test. The only testing that the Galaxy Note 9 won was the display testing.

With the current gen iPhone X beating the Galaxy Note 9 in so many aspects, it’s safe to say that when the new iPhones launch this fall, there should be no competition.

AAPL has been up this past week

iOS 11.3 release preview: another small step forward for company – big user experience jump

Apple presented its flagship iPhone X device on September 12, 2017 which provided the hardware basis for iOS 11 and empowered it to bring incredible new user experiences like Augmented Reality (AR) and complex face recognition solution for unlocking device and animating Emojis in real-time. Since then the features of the iOS were multiply challenged by many industry experts and the public in respect of the value being brought to customers for the price of iPhone X. Although, real-time animated Emojis are actually a powerful and fun tools to sell the device to Apple fans, the true capabilities horizon of the hardware and software is clearly not utilized so far. The preview of the new iOS version brings new perspectives on future user experience and applications with the updated ARKit, enabling developers to create applications that support AR not just in horizontal but vertical planes. Although it may sound vague from first perspective, actually is an enormous jump into the world of interactive surfaces like walls, posters, paintings, ads, etc. As a result, the potential value of such technology arriving at your palm may result in completely different approach for targeted advertisement and entertainment.

Another highly anticipated by the public feature which was mentioned in the preview and had its own separate press release is Apple Health Records. “Our goal is to help consumers live a better day. We’ve worked closely with the health community to create an experience everyone has wanted for years — to view medical records easily and securely right on your iPhone,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s COO. “By empowering customers to see their overall health, we hope to help consumers better understand their health and help them lead healthier lives.” Some experts compare this functionality to Apple Pay or Siri with respect to the impact scale on our lifestyle and the way we do our routine and for sure Apple is the company which is capable of taking the lead in such initiative. Another story is for investors to estimate the impact of such technologies’ introduction onto Apple’s value and for sure it will buzz the investor community for some time. Also, investors should consider that the same way Apple Pay stimulated new evolutionary step in online cashless payments, the same way Apple Health Records may become an environment for both offline and online medical care services which has extremely wide market reach and where they will be able to unify around patient’s needs and deliver care in extremely time-efficient and affordable manner. As for the Apple’s investors it is not clear how it will drive the company’s value in short term, but it is to be said that so far technologies which Apple introduces take some time for public to absorb and realize their true potential but when it happens the value sometimes exceeds even most optimistic analyst’s expectations.

Based on the above and the fact that not all of the Apple devices support AR and functionality yet even if they have iOS 11 installed, the hype around the mentioned technologies is capable to significantly drive the demand for the latest devices (iPhone X and iPhone 8). The latest sales results for Q1 2018 (published on February 1, 2018) support this statement as the number of iPhone X units sold rose by 66% and corresponding 113% increase in revenue comparing to Q4 2017 contributing to the overall rise in company’s sales. Additionally, one should reasonably expect intensified demand for the actual services to be provided based on those technologies which will drive additional revenues both directly to Apple and indirectly through third-party developers.

Apple opens first official store in Seoul, South Korea expanding its worldwide presence to 18 countries

Everybody knows what an Apple store is. Everybody knows that Asian market is constantly seeking for new trends, technologies and products. Apple is not an exception and that’s why the first official apple store opened in Gangnam area in Seoul. Although the penetration to the South Korean market is a hard thing to do for a foreign company as the dominance there lies with Samsung and LG, the expansion to this market sends a clear message. “We’re thrilled to open a new home for our customers in the vibrant city of Seoul and we look forward to continuing to grow in Korea,” said Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail. “Our stores are gathering places for the community where everyone is welcome to connect, learn and create.” As ambitious as it sounds, it literally shows strong intention of the company not just to sell its products, but also expand its Apple culture influence to this market being close by it Korean current and future fans. The concept of an official Apple store is also important from marketing and sales perspective, because the new products and services are always start to sell first at official stores rather than at distributors. Therefore, it will give Apple the required means to effectively compete with Samsung and LG and take its piece of cake from this table. This statement is completely in line with the sales statistics being recently published by Apple – the sales growth in Asia Pacific region (excluding Greater China and Japan) in Q1 2018 was 144% and 17% comparing it to Q4 and Q1 in 2017 respectively.

Apple introduced new product in an effort to stay competitive with Google Home and Amazon Echo – HomePod

It has been more than 2 and 1 years, respectively, since the release date of Amazon Echo and Google Home. The success of both devices is sometimes questionable and depends on the geography where the associated services are available for both devices. The idea of a smart home and devices which actually assist you in managing your household became not just a buzz but a practical set of tasks to be done by them. However, if you have certain restrictions for services to be utilized by those robots you cannot guarantee the success for such environments among the general public worldwide. Apple did not get into this competition for a while and seems to learn the mistakes done by Amazon and google. As a result, the new product – HomePod – orders on which were opened on February 9, is positioned as “Breakthrough Wireless Speaker that Brings Audio Technologies Into Any Home for an Incredible Listening Experience”. If we chop this motto into pieces it may seem that the competition is not going to be with Amazon or Google, but with audio giants like Bose or JBL. However, in the context of the sales statistics for the home assistant devices and home and portable audio speakers it is clear that the last ones were true success stories and insanely profitable market worldwide. From investor perspective it also seems as a good idea for Apple to compete with this new product in audio industry which is close to the cornerstone products and services like Apple Music, iPod and iPhone. Apple definitely shows a nice strategic approach to this new product, although it does not forget about the Siri – that assistant which became part of the Apple fans’ lives and sometimes a subject for jokes. Official press release says: “With support for HomeKit, HomePod can control hundreds of home accessories or set scenes like, “Hey Siri, I’m home,” to control a number of different accessories at the same time.” It makes clear that the experience gained by the public so far shaped the demand for a specific home assistant functionality which is more of a control hub for already exiting devices scattered around your house, and it is more of a nice touch to have for a more desired primary need – set up a nice mood by turning up good musical vibes. It seems to be a nice entrance point to this market for Apple as a sovereign player and it seems a good move from strategic perspective which investors expect from the Apple management team.

Conclusion – Q1 2018 results released

Based on the press release of the results for the Q1 2018 one should be totally amazed by financials – revenue of $88.3 billion, an increase of 13 percent from the year-ago quarter and quarterly earnings per diluted share of $3.89, up 16 percent. However, if we look up closely to the summary data for the quarter we will see that the most contributing to the overall growth item from the products range is not the newest iPhone X, but “Other Products”[1] section – 36% growth in Q1 2018 comparing to Q1 2017. At the same time we can see that although sequential revenue growth of 68% from Q4 2017 to Q1 2018 is significant it achieved by 113% growth produced by iPhone X and 70% growth produced by Other Products”. iPad and Mac products demonstrated insignificant changes in revenues ranging from -4% to 21% and from -5% to 18% for quarterly sequential and Year-year comparables. Such performance does not seem bad for general public as the market for tablets and laptops are not that dynamic nowadays, but from a strategic perspective it could become a worrying sign of the main revenue drivers’ convergence to just smartphones and accessories like Apple Watch. However, this worrying signs are smoothed out by the introduction of HomePod which may contribute significantly to the Apple environment value proposition to current and potential customers, but also by the fact that Apple became one of the biggest beneficiaries of the current US tax reform. The fact that Apple decided to repatriate extreme amount of cash from overseas which becomes available for reinvestment on US soil and, potentially, for dividends payout accompanied by the company’s stock buy-back program gives strong potential for further freedom to spend it on R&D and M&A activities. The best way to give sense of how much cash became available to Apple belongs to Luca Maestri, Apple CFO: “We have plenty of financial flexibility, of course” and from the published financial statements we can understand that it literally means almost $285 billion. In overall, Apple’s stock performance over Q1 2018 and the period until the press release of the financial statements was above industry benchmarks, but started dropping starting from the middle of January with a slight spike up around the date of the press release.

I Know First Forecast on Apple

As far as we have the release of the first quarter fiscal 2018 results of Apple at our disposal, I do believe that the company will continue to show increasing sales of the new iPhone X. However, there is a certain ambiguity around the other revenue drivers and the extent of dividends to be paid to the shareholders. As Tim Cook, Apple CEO mentioned at the annual shareholders meeting held on February 13, although the company has lots of available cash, but it is unlikely that all the amount will be spent in a form of special dividend. As far as it represents the strategic vision of the board on the activities of the company being aimed at investment into R&D and potentially M&A, one should not expect some quick win from the status of Apple shareholder. In my view, as of today the most of the value which shareholders needs to be expected within the long time horizon and we should expect the improvements due to conceptually new products, services and features being proposed as a result of the company’s investments. The I Know First forecast supports my opinion that in short term of 1 month the stock will be rather bullish than neutral with relatively significant predictability and is going to become even more bullish over 3 month and 1 year time with the signal and corresponding predictability increasing over those periods.

Apple Stock News: Apple increasing production of IPhone X in Q4

Apple stock news: After production start of the IPhone X, Apple has seemingly addressed many of the production issues at hand, and increased daily production to approximately 450,000 – 550,000 pieces a day compared to the 50,000 – 150,000 a month ago. Due to this improvement shipment will increase 10% to 20% in the Q4, higher than the previous estimate but become slightly lower in the first quarter of 2018.

This increase in shipments comes just right for the holiday season, most probably leading to high sales of the new product and a strong finish for the Apple share at the end of Q4. Apple’s financial guidance for the ongoing quarter suggest that Apple is confident that it has resolved all production trouble and is aiming towards a record performance with strong demand throughout the quarter. The high demand for the IPhone X was forecasted by an I Know First analyst on September 8th. Since the bullish forecast on September 8th, Apple shares (AAPL) are up 8.5% which is a fair amount for such a heavy share.

 

Although Apple (AAPL) has seen some difficulties in the past, with the delayed release of the HomePod, the company is still growing, and is estimated to reach a median target of $193.00 with some estimates seeing it as high $235.00 in the coming 12 months. Currently at $174.97, the share has room to grow, and most probably will do so in the upcoming months.

Apple Stock News: Apple Denies Rumors Of Downgrading Its Face ID Technology

Apple Stock News

For the latest Apple Stock News, AAPL closed at $156.41 per share on October 25th, 2017. It generated losses of 0.43% from its previous close on October 24th, 2017, when it closed at $157.1 per share.

Bloomberg reported recently that Apple requested its suppliers to reduce the accuracy of the iPhone X’s Face ID system. Expectations are that Apple will not be able to meet its demand for the new iPhone this holiday season. Consequently, rumors are that AAPL is allowing this downgrade of the technology in order to make it easier to manufacture, and thus speed up production.

At the heart of the delay is the dot projector, which is a component that allows the Face ID technology to work. One of the people familiar with the production process stated that Apple underestimated the complexity of making and assembling exceedingly fragile components and didn’t add extra time for the production process.

In response to the Bloomberg article, Apple denied this downgrade in the technology. In a statement, Apple said: “The quality and accuracy of Face ID haven’t changed. It continues to be 1 in a million probability of a random person unlocking your iPhone with Face ID”. Moreover, Apple also stated that it is expecting the Face ID to be the new gold standard for facial authentication.

IPhone X will be available for pre-order this Friday, October 27th.

Apple Stock Outlook: Google’s Money Is Helping Finance Apple’s Research On Self-Driving Cars and Augmented Reality

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology  – Senior Analyst at I Know First

Apple Stock Outlook

Summary:

  • Bernstein analyst A.M. Sacconaghi Jr. estimated that Google paid Apple $3 billion to remain the default search engine on the iPhone/iPad.
  • This is triple the annual $1 billion payment that Google used to pay Apple three years ago to keep its default search engine status on the iPhone/iPad.
  • Google’s willingness to pay triple validated just how important Apple’s mobile ecosystem is to advertising-dependent companies. Apple’s iOS ecosystem is indispensable to Google.
  • The estimated $3 billion payment from Google helps pay for the estimated $3 billion that Apple is spending annually on self-driving cars and Augmented Reality research.
  • In spite posting a new high last week, AAPL still has a bullish one-year algorithmic forecast. This stock could still post a new 52-week within the next 12 months.

An analyst from Bernstein reported earlier this month that Apple (AAPL) could have gotten $3 billion  from Google (GOOG) in FY 2017. This reported $3 billion payment is in exchange for Google retaining its right to be the default search engine on Apple’s smartphones and tablets. The $3 billion estimated annual payment from Google helps finance the estimated $3 billion that Apple is spending on Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality research.

It was revealed  in 2014 that Google paid $1 billion per year to Apple but the previous deal expired in early 2015.

Google obviously offered more money to Apple to beat Microsoft’s (MSFT) Bing. Google will continue to monetize mobile search engine queries of iPhone/iPad users for many years to come. Yes, Apple doesn’t have a search engine or a robust mobile advertising services platform, but it still is a beneficiary of the $22.18 billion/year U.S. mobile search advertising industry.

Apple’s has obvious long-term economic benefits because Google’s search engine accounts for 95% of the U.S. paid search advertising on smartphones.

Why Investors Should Really Care

In the U.S., 75% of Google’s search engine advertising revenue is generated from iOS devices. It is only fair that Apple is now reportedly getting $3 billion per year from Google. Getting a larger share of the mobile search advertising revenue from Google is a small but important tailwind for AAPL. Google’s long-term advertising success has trickle down benefits to Apple.

apple stock predictions

Source: https://www.invespcro.com

The deal between Google and Apple might also be pro-rated based on Google’s total annual mobile search advertising revenue on the iOS platform. In short, Apple’s annual payment from Google could also grow larger than $3 billion in the coming years. Google gained $11.45 billion in U.S. mobile search advertising last year. Its estimated revenue will grow to $13.74 billion this year. I believe Apple will accordingly get a higher annual payment from Google for the next succeeding years.

Google’s willingness to pay $3 billion+++ per year to keep its default search engine status fortified the importance of the iOS ecosystem to the mobile advertising industry. Apple’s hundreds of millions of iPhone/iPad users belong, more often than not, to the middle-class and upper-class sectors of consumers. Google therefore has very compelling reasons to keep paying Apple big money to retain its default search engine status on mobile Safari.

$3 Billion Is A Lot Of R&D Money

Apple has decided to postpone indefinitely its ambition to build its consumer-grade self-driving cars. However, the company is still intent on researching and developing software and the cloud platform for autonomous driving cars. The $3 billion search engine-related payment from Google is a lot of money to finance development of this venture.

Going forward, Apple needs to spend big money on R&D to accelerate its software-based and Artificial Intelligence-enhanced self-driving car technologies to keep up with Google, Nvidia (NVDA), and Baidu (BIDU). The more money and manpower it can pour on this segment, the faster it could catch up with the leaders. Intel (INTC) paid more than $16 billioin for Mobileye just to boost its footprint in self-driving cars.

The autonomous vehicle business is definitely a new fashionable tech growth industry that Apple must get involved in quickly. The $3 billion/year from Google could also help Apple fund more third-party acquisitions to improve its car-related Artificial Intelligence efforts.

Apple will also probably have to research car-specific processors and sensors to complement its software for self-driving vehicles. Nvidia, Mobileye, and Qualcomm (QCOM) are years ahead when it comes to car-centric processors. I do not think Apple can build its proprietary software/cloud platform for self-driving cars without its own proprietary processors/sensors.

Conclusion

Getting $3 billion/year from Google is not going to move Apple’s stock. However, it could accelerate Apple’s research on Augmented Reality and self-driving car technologies. These two developing are future diversification areas for Apple. Apple cannot forever rely on its iPhone revenue to propel its future growth. It needs to get involved on the new tech fad, self-driving cars and AR. Riding on what’s popular helps motivate investors to remain bullish on AAPL.

AAPL already posted a new record high of $162.51 last week.  However, next month could deliver the iPhone 8 that everybody dreamed about. Apple coming up with a real major upgrade to the iPhone 7 next month could propel the stock to a new 52-week high. It could even hit $170 if Tim Cook announces there would be enough global supply for the iPhone 8 before September ends.

AAPL remains a buy. It has outperformed Google’s YTD return. AAPL’s YTD gain could hit +42% after 2017 ends. I will remain long AAPL as long as Warren Buffett remains long AAPL.
