  30. Anyone plan to pay for Apple Devices by buying AAPL? (08/08/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    If I out $6 a day into AAPL, in 2 years I’ll have put enough into AAPL to pay for my major Apple devices (MB, iPad, iPhone, perhaps a watch or airpods here or there.) Except, with returns on the stock, in 3-4 years, the returns will pay for those devices. And if growth continues, in 6-8 years it should pay for the devices and more! Anyone have a similar plan? Of course I won’t use the account to buy stuff directly, the key is to let it accumulate as I purchase devices, feeding it at the same rate I spend.   submitted by   /u/redratus [link]   [comments]

  32. Extremely bullish on apple now (18/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    After reading this: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2021-02-09/this-is-how-tim-cook-transformed-apple-aapl-after-steve-jobs ​ I came to realize how good apple management team is and how good Tim Cook is at navigating the space in terms of politics. Apple has some of the highest margins (seem to be only increasing), insane revenue (they are still growing), good moat (its a hardware company basically), immune to monopoly regulation (they only control like what? 6% of the entire smartphone market?), great marketing, and have a lot of vertical integration (iMessage, Apple m1, iCloud, Apple Card, Apple one, etc). They also have shit ton of cash (they can buy Netflix full on the spot basically), and assets (their headquarters is roughly worth around $5B for example). Lastly, they have a lot of room to grow because they are so far from a monopoly, and they going into other areas where they can dominate (Apple Car, Apple card, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade+). Here are the other areas they dominate: Apple iPad, and Apple Watch. Nothing comes close to competitors. The only area where I can see apple failing is if they just keep riding the wave, and get lazy with their product innovations (you can argue this is already happening). However, after the latest apple chip, and the amount of cash they have, they got to be failing a lot and for a long time for Apple to be in any bad spot. Hence, it's a safe bet in my eyes with a decent amount of upside. ​ I like the stock. A lot.   submitted by   /u/maxadorable [link]   [comments]

  36. Apple Plays it Safe With iPhone 13 (15/09/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Shares of Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) fell 0.96% Tuesday after the tech giant unveiled the iPhone 13 and several other products during its annual September event in California. Tech: Apple also introduced its newest iPad and Apple Watch at the event, as well as software updates. The announcements were not unexpected. Downfall: It wasn’t just Apple stock that suffered yesterday from the lackluster iPhone announcement. Shares of wireless telecommunication stocks AT&T (NYSE: T), Verizon (NYSE: VZ), and T-Mobile (Nasdaq: TMUS) all slipped Tuesday. Even iPhone suppliers such as Skyworks (Nasdaq: SWKS), Qualcomm (Nasdaq: QCOM) and Corning (NYSE: GLW) saw their stock prices decrease as well. Bigger Picture: While the iPhone 13 has some impressive features, there were very few surprises that investors could get excited about. Final Thoughts: It will be interesting to see if there’s an increase or decrease in iPhone sales for the holiday season this year. Hope you enjoyed this commentary.

  42. Apple earnings in 2 days, Can the Stock rally if they beat estimates? (27/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hello Here is a small part from the article I found regarding upcoming Apple earnings: " Apple could crush Street estimates, writes Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty, who has an Overweight rating and a $158 price target on the stock, up 17% from Monday’s close of $134.72. She sees the top line above $80 billion, with all segments growing at least 19% year over year. She is especially bullish on Mac and iPad sales, with estimates far above consensus—53% for Macs and 52% for iPads. She also expects Apple to increase its dividend by 10% and expand its stock repurchase program by $60 billion. " To see the original article click here.

  46. Apple to invest $1.2 billion amid EU push for semiconductor dominance (10/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    The EU plans for Europe to be the home to 20% of global semiconductor manufacturing by 2030 Apple will invest more than €1 billion ($1.2 billion) over the next three years to create Europe’s largest research and development site for mobile wireless semiconductors and software, the technology giant said on Wednesday. The silicon design center in Munich will focus on 5G and future wireless technologies, adding hundreds of new employees and a state-of-the-art facility. It comes as the European Union is pushing to make the region a dominant force in global tech. “I couldn’t be more excited for everything our Munich engineering teams will discover — from exploring the new frontiers of 5G technology, to a new generation of technologies that bring power, speed, and connectivity to the world,” said Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook, in a statement on Wednesday. Apple’s AAPL, -0.94% engineering hub in Munich is already the company’s largest in Europe. The team’s work includes power management design, application processors, and wireless technologies. In the past, Apple’s engineers in the German city have created custom silicon products to increase performance across products including the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac using Apple’s M1 chip. The announcement of Apple’s investment comes the day after a major policy push from the executive arm of the EU to make the region a key player in global tech over the next decade. The European Commission presented its plans, which it calls the Digital Compass, on Tuesday, calling for projects across the 27-member bloc as part of “a successful digital transformation of Europe by 2030.” The Commission’s plans include ramping up semiconductor manufacturing in Europe, with the goal that the region be home to 20% of global chip production by 2030. By the same year, the bloc plans to cover all populated areas with 5G networks. The plan also calls for Europe to have its first quantum computer — a vastly more powerful form of computing technology, still in its infancy — by the start of the next decade. In addition, 75% of businesses should use cloud computing services, “big data,” and artificial intelligence by 2030, the Commission said.   submitted by   /u/folkwoodswest [link]   [comments]

  47. $AAPL - Why aren't you buying the dip? (DD) (10/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Hi all, this is my first DD on a stock, so bear with me here. Any feedback is appreciated! I'm an avid investor that has had about half of a year of experience now. I've looked at positive (and negative) indicators on stocks for a while now, but one that has always caught my eye is Apple. Yes, it's a popular stock. Yes, it has had solid returns in general. But why am I so eager about it now, and writing about it? Well, hear me out. Why is $AAPL down? Apple's stock has been plummeting lately. It dropped around 0.91% today, and 11.8% this past month. We're seeing a massive sell-off most likely due to the following reasons. Little news regarding their future projects. We haven't seen any good indicator of when the planned electric vehicle, VR headset, or other future projects are coming. Apple is reportedly cutting production of popular products. This includes the iPhone 12 mini, discontinuing the iMac Pro, etc. While many news media sources seem to be unfazed by the changes, it still can cause a sell-off. The COVID-19 pandemic. We are still stuck at home and eagerly waiting for the vaccine. The market has been performing well, however, given the upcoming stimulus. But the S&P has been a little rocky, and for Apple to move along with it isn't surprising. There's more factors to analyze but I don't want to spend hours on this DD. I'm trying to keep it a bit brief -- at least smaller than most DDs on this subreddit. What makes me bullish on $AAPL? I have always loved the company Apple. I use a lot of their products, and I have used them most of my life. It's one of the largest companies. Ever. If you don't see the long-term growth in the company, you are a fool. Just this past year (incl. March 2020), we have seen a 73.28% growth in the stock. Now yes, you may argue that it's just following the rapid bull market we have had during the pandemic, but I would still reflect it on the value of the company as well. They also had a stock split in 2020, so they are definitely on track to have significantly higher growth in the future. The RSI of the stock has been low as well. With highs barely scraping 68-70 during this month, and sinking as low as 13, I think this is a strong indicator on how well the stock is bound to perform later this year. Obviously you have to look at the rest of the fundamentals, but to see prices this low for $AAPL in general is insane. Trading volume hasn't been unusual for the company, but yet the price is still dropping. As previously written with the uncertainty surrounding upcoming projects, I'm still excited about them. Mainly Apple's upcoming car project. It has been in the talks for over five years now, but I feel as though we will receive an announcement in the upcoming years (not quite sure about this year). It seems asinine that they're working on a car. But people thought the same with the iPhone back in 2007. Or the Apple Watch in 2015. "WhY woUld YoU weAr a IpHonE oN yoUr WriSt?" But yet, it became a massively popular hit in the years to come. So much so, that it outsold the entire Swiss watch industry in 2019. But I could totally see Apple make an EV, and become a strong competitor to Tesla during this decade. Apple's VR headset also has been in the news lately, and I could definitely see it be an innovator in gaming. Apple recently released the Apple Arcade for iPhone, Mac, and iPad systems. They are definitely trying to become a leader in the gaming industry. Apple also has started to use their own in-house chips in their new Mac computers. They have pretty much ditched all ties to Intel in their future computers, and I think this is a brilliant idea. The performance on their new machines are stronger than their previous ones, even with similar specs. The machines are also more affordable as well, which makes it even more appealing to customers. Apple also has set up a German chip facility to continue production on new chip innovations. People were eager about 5G innovations with companies like $BB or $NOK, but Apple is working on it as well! So what is my game plan? I plan to YOLO most -- if not all -- of my portfolio into $AAPL. It might seem stupid, but I really do see significant potential in the company for this year. We might see a good catalyst on the rumored March 23rd event, depending on if we have any significant reveals. However, regardless of the outcome of the event, I still feel as though this price point on the company is extremely low and a good buy. I'll probably hold it for most of 2021, possibly into 2022 if we see any promising news of their upcoming projects. I'll probably post YOLO updates on WSB or something lol. For now, I'm just going to be buying shares, as I've always had theta anxiety with options. ​ tl;dr I'm extremely bullish on $AAPL and I think their price point right now is incredibly low and a great entry point. This is my first DD so please give feedback wherever possible! I want to keep making these, but I want to make sure they aren't pure garbage. Thanks! (I'm not a financial advisor. Please do your own DD)   submitted by   /u/flapjack_777 [link]   [comments]
