He read Warren Buffett's letter; he loves this stock and last year bought a lot of it. Apple is well-positioned with a strong customer following and the company can gradually expand market share. He traded out of this a few years ago--a mistake. You can re-enter it here. He owns Facebook, Google and Amazon in this space, instead.

A core tech/consumer product holding of his. It's taking a breather with all momentum stocks that led in 2020. The rise in bond yields, driving the current rotation, is hitting these tech names hard, though Apple not too badly. He likes Apple for its ecosystem based on a solid consumer base that continues to upgrade their phones, buy their products and use their services. Apple is no longer cheap and has been pricing in its obvious growth. Don't sell, but average down with any 5-10% pullback, and have a long-term view.

A lot of the stock's success recently has been on a revision of the multiple upwards. Earnings have not risen as fast. This is a 5G story. You need brand new hardware to get 5G capability. Lots of runway. Good value here.

Continues to like it. The business is great and has performed well. The installation basis is round 1.5B devices and consumer stickiness is still very high. People want to stay in the eco-system and it has a strong brand. Integration is good too. 5G will be a tailwind for renewing iPhones for consumers. Growth will come from the service side and wearables.

Apple is a juggernaut. They keep making the best devices on Earth that earn customer loyalty. People are willing to pay up for them, including subscription services after they buy a phone.

He expects a good report not just about the iPhone 12, but their wider product line. They're cleaning up because of the stay-at-home economy. The service revenue stream should keep growing, but the weaker US dollar is a threat. They report Wednesday.

iPhone 12 is a 5G enabled phone. Problem is the apps are geared to 3-4G. There are other ways to play 5G. A bit over its skis. Take a bit of profit. You can still participate in the Apple ecosystem through Skyworks Solutions and Qualcomm.

Has owned this for 15 years, so he's happy with it. But every morning he asks, What is the future of this stock? Is capital employed the best way for the future? Apple has a tremendous franchise built in of at least 1.3 billion devices worldwide and 93% consumer brand loyalty. Add to that we're heading into a 5G world, so there will be a massive rollover of product adoption (old phones can't work on 5G). For Apple, some of the future is priced in, though only partially, based on the PE.

Biden's increase in tax will affect tech companies. The problem with tech companies is that they almost pay no taxes. We are getting to a point where governments will be looking for tax dollars to pay down the tax. The likelihood of big tech paying more taxes is increasing. Ireland has been chasing after Apple for a while. There are a number of lawsuits targeting big tech. The risk is still under played. There is value in Apple but their struggle is to find the next product.

An essential 5G play They just launched a new iPhone in October that can run on 5G. An obvious 5G play that is poised to capitalize on the rollout. An investment, not a trade. Apple is asking suppliers for 96 million units this year. The new phone is selling very well in China. Service revenue streams are growing ast and making Apple more than a products story. Biden warming up relations with China will help. AAPL is up 63% in the past year.

One of the largest fabulous semiconductor companies in the world. Its recent internally produced chip is giving tremendous performance. He's reduced Apple considerably since last August. Not the best pick for the next 12 months. He'd prefer the semi space.

AAPL vs. GOOG Alphabet is a more reasonable valuation, so he'd choose this to deploy capital right now. He still really likes Apple, though it's not cheap. It's still about the ecosystem and luxury. He respects how good their products are. Beginning of a serious upgrade cycle with 5G. He's dubious of the iCar, as it's lower margin, tough business, capitally intense.

APPL vs. MSFT Apple is a consumer products company, whereas MSFT is an enterprise company. Both trade at similar multiples. Great balance sheets, buy back shares, increase dividends. Apple relies on growing iPhone and 5G. Will continue to do well. The iCar is an expensive proposition. MSFT has really benefited from cloud infrastructure growth. Better margins and free cashflow growth are ahead. MSFT is in a sweet spot and may have better growth in the next little while, so he'd choose it.
