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.

 Summary:

  • In spite of year-over-year declines in quarterly revenue and net income, Apple’s stock still jumped 5% during after-hours trading after its Jan. 29 ER.
  • iPhone’s quarterly revenue was down -15% Y/Y but Mac’s revenue was up 9% Y/Y. Revenue from iPad was up +17% and Services was up +19% Y/Y.
  • The strong sales growth of the iPad and Services segments convinced me that Apple will really release a new low-cost iPad Mini and iPad 9.7 inch this year.
  • Office productivity, mobile gaming, and watching streaming movies is still better on an iPad than on an iPhone.
  • Adobe will release an iPad/iOS native version of Photoshop CC this year. A $200 iPad Mini 5 with 7.9-inch screen is perfect for professional photo editing.

The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From The Field

 Apple’s position in sports & forecasted stock rise

  •  Where Apple’s real strength is as a brand in sports
  • Apple bringing their iPads into the arenas
  • Adobe’s Photoshop to be available on next iPad and what that means for AAPL stock
  • I Know First predicts another bullish year for Apple stock as it successfully did the previous year

Apple has become a brand that unlike competitors, is more than just the technology you are buying, but a feeling, a vibrancy. Today, If you are out for a run or a walk, chances are you are measuring your heart rate and distance on an apple device. Simultaneously, your favorite song is playing to give you a little extra motivation, from that very same device. This is coming from the company that used to be nothing more than a computer, and can now be utilized for almost any aspect of everyday life. The tree called Apple continues to grow and shows no signs of slowing down in it’s relentless evolution. Their next branch to sprout if it hasn’t already, may very well be a solidified position in the professional sports realm.

The first thing to be aware of, is understanding how powerful of a platform the professional sports world really is. At the core, viewers consist of a passionate, loyal fanbase that tune in almost every night. To get an idea, the average viewership of the finals of the 4 major sports in the US, which are football, basketball, baseball and hockey comes out to an astounding 40 million viewers. Now that the Supreme Court just granted states the permission to once again legalize gambling on sports matches, you can expect that number to rise just like the blood pressure of a die-hard fan or gambler during a close game. What happens now is the average person who normally wouldn’t care to watch a game at 8:00 on a Tuesday night when is favorite show is on, might be watching in hopes of getting a return on his bet.
