Used to own it. Their devices, like the iPhone, are interwoven into our lives. They have growth for the very long term as they keep launching new products. Pays a low dividend. He foresees so-so returns in the future, but they are a fine company and are very well run. He has no problems with anyone owning this already.

You can start building a position at this $125-130 level. Did well last year, but has lagged the market and other tech names this year. Transitioned to services, which account for 20% of revenue. Higher margins, recurring revenue, 5G upgrades. Expects new products, very strong balance sheet. Yield is 0.68%. (Analysts’ price target is $156.72)

He gets a lot of questions about selling at market peak. Also at peak are the economy and U.S. earnings. Trades at 25x earnings, which is a premium at the market, but Apple is growing faster than the market, so the 25x is justified. This won't always shine in the sun, though; it will take breaks. But don't give up on Apple, because it will resume its rise as long as its fundamentals are intact. Look at revenue growth and cash flow growth, not just share price movement.

A phenomenal company, but there are two risks: valuation at 24x forward earnings, which is in-line for a software company, not hardware; and its product mix (50% of revenues from their handsets). The 5G upgrade cycle will likely drive Apple's growth for the medium term. If you believe in this, buy on pullback, but everyone knows this 5G upgrade cycle is coming, so there may not be a pullback.

Great, quality company. One of the premier ecosystem stocks in the world. 5G cycle is motivating people to upgrade their phones. Taking leadership on privacy concerns actually strengthens the value of the AAPL ecosystem. More reasonable multiple.

It's no longer about innovation, but integration. You can still buy this now; could have bought it 15 years ago, and still own it for 15 years.

MSFT-Q vs. AAPL-Q. They have a lot of similar strengths. They dominate their industries and have very loyal customers. They have good business models. AAPL-Q generates the vast majority of their profits from iPhones, which market may becoming saturated. MSFT-Q focuses on the commercial client. He thinks MSFT-Q will continue to grow faster than AAPL-Q will.

Likes it a lot. Customers are very loyal and continue to re-purchase these items. The service side, which is high margins, is growing as well. It is well run and very responsible to their shareholders. Dividend should go up over time. Don't worry about timing the market. Trading at 23x next years earnings, which is a reasonable price.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly AAPL is the largest single holding of Warren Buffet. Recently reported revenues were up 54%. It is trading at 38x earnings, compared to peers at over 62x. It pays a smallish dividend backed by a payout ratio of 25% of cashflow. We would buy this with a stop loss at $100, looking to achieve $159 -- upside potential over 27%. Yield 0.69% (Analysts’ price target is $158.58)

Caller was asking about selling Apple stocks for something else. Bought Facebook based on outlook for advertising. As economies begin to normalize, there will be increased ad spending. Could sell Apple shares to buy Facebook. You could own Berkshire Hathaway as a proxy to owning Apple.

Canadian investors should definitely look at US investments. There won't be major moves in the exchange rates in the next while. AAPL-Q really leveraged the iPhone and Airpods are a great business. He now prefers some of the other technology names in the US, however.

Cynics on Wall St. don't care about Apple's non-phone new products, but one analyst at Morgan Stanley sees strong upside for the Mac and iPad that could be gold standard for the new hybrid workforce. The rise of remote work is a Trojan Horse that gets the Mac back in the workplace so that it could become a serious threat to Dell and HP because people are spending so much time at home. Unlike the one-off consumer tech market, the enterprise business is a lot stickier and he expects Apple will get a bigger slice of this pie. For years, Apple has been dismissed as a one-trick pony, but Apple will be much more than its phone--wearables, computers and their service business.
