Apple Stock Analysis: Holiday Shopping Season Will Boost Apple’s Sales

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 Analysis

Summary:

  • It’s time to go long AAPL. The Christmas shopping season is here soon.
  • The global recall of Galaxy Note 7 and holiday sales could make up for the declining iPhone sales in China.
  • I expect the Christian/Catholic community around the world to boost sales of iPhones, iPads, and iMac computers this last two months of 2016.
  • Digitimes reported that Apple has increased its fourth-quarter production orders for the iPhone 7. I expect Apple to sell 60-70 iPhones this Q4 2016.
  • The short and long-term algorithmic forecasts of Apple are very positive.

Digitimes reported last week that Apple (AAPL) increased Q4 production orders for its iPhone 7 products. This is enough clue that Apple expects this holiday quarter to post better-than-expected iPhone sales. I therefore urge the investing public to consider going long on AAPL now.

The Christmas quarter is always the busiest period for Apple’s iPhone sales.  Apple’s stock will likely hit $120 after it reports its Q2 2017 earnings in January. The global recall of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 should inspire phablet-using people to go for the iPhone 7 Plus.

Winning the approval of Galaxy Note customers this last quarter of 2016 can be a new source of growth for Apple. Stronger global iPhone sales this Christmas shopping period could offset Apple’s faltering smartphone sales in China.

North American and European Christmas holiday shoppers could still deliver impressive iPhone sales in spite of the declining sales in China.

Apple Stock Analysis

Apple derives almost 70% of its revenue from iPhone sales. Any development or event which could help boost iPhone sales is therefore important.  Samsung’s batterygate problem over the Galaxy Note 7 compels me to believe that many holiday shoppers will likely buy the iPhone 7 Plus to replace their recalled Note 7 Android phone.

Yes, Samsung has also increased production of its Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge to hopefully retain the loyalty of pissed-off Note 7 owners. However, the Samsung brand is already tarnished with the exploding/fire-prone battery of the Note 7. In my view, even the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge (which never had any battery problems) are also affected. Public perception now is that it would be safer to buy the new iPhone 7 over Samsung’s high-end phones.

Business users who love the Galaxy Note line of products could shift their affinity to the iPhone 7 Plus.  Apple’s flagship handset does not have a bundled stylus but there are cheap third-party stylus products that could work with the iPhone 7.

I am envisioning companies buying hundreds or thousands of the iPhone 7 Plus to reward their best employees this Christmas. I can imagine husbands buying the iPhone 7 Plus as gifts to their wives or children. A South Korean analyst already predicted that 100 million units of the iPhone 7 will be sold before 2016 ends. This prediction was made before the Galaxy Note 7 recall.

Samsung’s expensive recall ($4.57 billion drop in operating profits) of the Galaxy Note 7 is boon to Apple. I expect Apple to sell 60-70 million iPhone 7 units over the last two months of 2016. Apple will likely be the top beneficiary (this holiday shopping season) of Samsung’s recall of the Galaxy Note 7. The people who buy pricy phones like the Note 7 are not likely going to replace it with a sub-$400 Xiaomi Mi5 or Huawei Honor 8.

Conclusion

Unless Samsung can release a new flagship phone before December, it will be able to offer the older Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge to holiday shoppers. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are newer phones so they become the default choice for Christmas gift-givers.

It also helps that the iPhone 7 Plus outperforms the Galaxy Note 7. Big-spending phone buyers expect their phablet to offer the fastest performance.

Aside from stronger iPhone sales, I expect Apple to also make a killing on selling its new MacBook Pro laptop. It’s been four years since Apple made a major redesign of its flagship laptop. Prolonged anticipation tells me that there are millions of eager customers who will line up to buy the MacBook 2016.

The October-December quarter is also the best season when Apple sells the most of its Mac products. Improved sales of the iPhone 7 and Mac computers should boost AAPL’s price to $120 in January. The near and long-term algorithmic forecasts from I Know First are very favorable for Apple’s stock. Let us trust the mighty forecasts of I Know First.  There is greater probability that AAPL will post positive returns within the next 3 months or one-year  period.

Apple Stock Value: Better Cameras Make The iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus Must-Have Upgrades

Apple Stock Value

An I Know First Analyst had written a bullish article regarding Apple Inc. on September 18th, 2016. Below is the summary for the article.

Summary:

  • Initial inventory of the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus is sold out.
  • The basic iPhone 7 plus is $120 more expensive that the smaller iPhone 7. However, the better dual camera system is likely why more people are favoring it.
  • The best camera is what people always carry with them. The iPhone has become a worthy replacement for compact and interchangeable-lens digital cameras.
  • Anything that inspires iPhone loyalist to upgrade is good for Apple.
  • The most recent algorithmic forecasts from I Know First are hinting AAPL is still worth buying right now.

Apple Stock Value

New bets by Tim Cook on changes in cultural trends and underestimation of iPhone 7 demands, has helped AAPL shares rise over the past few weeks.

Apple Stock News: iPhone 7 Sold Out and Peter Stern Hired

Apple Stock News

For the latest Apple Stock News,  AAPL closed at $111.77 on Wednesday, September 14th, with a gain of 3.54%, or $3.82 from Apple’s previous closing of $107.95.  Since the last report indicating its stock performance at the close of Sept. 12, we have seen the stock increase by 6%.

iPhone 7 Sold Out and Peter Stern Hired

Apple Stock News

 

 

The U.S. and thirty other countries will be among the first to have the iPhone 7 phones sold in stores on Friday, September 16th.  As the world anxiously awaits, Apple just announced both iPhone 7 models are sold out.  Perhaps this may not be a surprise, as we’ve seen in past releases of its predecessors being sold out.  Although customers may not be able to purchase the phones at the Apple stores for now, shoppers may continue pre-ordering online.

The encouraging news of its latest product being sold out gives investors and shareholders the confidence to push Apple stock price higher.  Investors can be assured that Apple has the largest total cash reserve of any company, some viewing this as a safe investment.

Apple also reported the hiring of previous Time Warner executive Peter Stern.  He will be serving as vice president working in cloud services.  Perhaps Apple is seeking his expertise in the cable industry and major media as Apple is seeking to have a joint television service with main broadcasting companies. If he can do this, it will finally put years of negotiations into a possible signed deal.
