BUY
Does not view it as a growth stock. Apple is reasonably valued compared to other tech valuations that are more extreme. 28x price to earnings. Does have some value characteristics due to cash generation. Too expensive relative to other cyclical parts fo the markets.

Allan Tong’s Discover Picks If you do want to invest in a headline stock in EV’s then consider Apple. The maker of iPhones—it’s long been reported—plans to build self-driving EV’s. We all know of Apple’s long track record of building innovative products, such as the iPod and the tablet, so they’ve earned the confidence of the market to succeed in EV’s. Some readers will swear by Tesla, and I can’t argue against its magnificent stock performance in past years, but Apple offers far less volatility. Read 4 Popular Headline Stocks for our full analysis.

BUY
She bought more in the latest September pullback. Likes it long term. Chip shortages have caused pullback in volume expectations, but this will get resolved. Transitioned from a product-only company to one with services, which account for 33% of revenue. Keeps coming up with new services and features.
electrical / electronic
BUY
Apple is the perfect example of the stock market today. They just delivered a strong quarter, but suffered revenues shortfalls from the chip shortage. The street is dead wrong about Apple and sold it off today. Apple products are excellent and will remain in demand.
electrical / electronic
BUY
Don't think of this merely as a smartphone play, but offer payments, entertainment, news, sports, game, healthcare through its ecosystem. They make the best products. He expects them to report a good quarter and if it has any problems it's due from component shortages that can't meet demand. Huge cash flow.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Oct 02/20, Up 33%) Last year was a little more quiet in the market. The best business in the world. It is not trading at the highest multiple in the world though. Great quality business should trade at at least 25 - 30x earnings. Apple trades at 25x forward earnings. Continues to innovate.
electrical / electronic
DON'T BUY
iPhone is 50% of its revenue. If it runs into an issue (technical glitch, fashion), this will materially impact the stock. Earnings have grown about 17%, while revenue's grown about 8%. 8% seems weak compared to other tech biggies. Not that AAPL will falter, but there are other names he'd rather own.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Oct 23/20, Up 29%) He bought this in 2005. He's done extremely well and there's lots of runway ahead. Tailwinds: 5G is coming and 1.4 billion phones out there will need to upgrade, and a 93% customer loyalty rate. Supply delays will mean deferred purchases, not cancellations.
electrical / electronic
BUY
Apple's supply shortages are nothing new. Like, 11 years ago, the iPhone 4 had problems with its antenna and the stock got crushed, but that was a great buying opportunity. The stock is now worth 10 times more. You don't get many buying opportunities for Apple like now. The semis shortage is hitting all companies. Apple boasts the best technology and the most loyalty customer base. Apple won't lose sales of iPhones, but those sales will be postponed. And don't trade this; nobody is that nimble.

COMMENT

Google and MSFT don't deliver products in a box, but deliver software or services over the internet, so both stocks will do well (in light of supply chain shortages). In contrast, Apple must deliver hard products, like phones and watches, but are suffering supply bottlenecks. The latter will likely guide cautiously this earnings season which may hurt these stocks.

COMMENT
Likes Apple. Apple is slightly less expensive on valuation than Microsoft. Their franchise is second to none. They came out with the iPhone 13, which was not particularly flashy, but the expected sales is positive. There are aging iPhones and the replacement cycle will be enormous. They have a good formula for success. Multiple has moved up in part to the recognition of the formula's ability to repeat itself.

TOP PICK
She likes it for their 1 billion customer base. Apple will benefit from the 5G upgrade cycle; we're in the early innings of this. This afternoon, Apple will launch another upgraded, 5G phone. They've transitioned well from hardware (computers, phones) to services on a reliable subscription basis which now account for a third of their gross profits. Nice recurring revenues streams in Apple cloud and Apple music, and their wearables business has done very well, including the Apple Watch. Her three young adult daughters own the Watch, iPhone and Mac Pro, so Apple products resonate with a young demographic. Long growth to come. (Analysts’ price target is $165.82)

BUY
The Apple-Epic ruling last Friday that Apple lost Wall Street was wrong: Epic didn't win. Apple came out ahead. Epic is appealing the ruling; Apple isn't. The judge said Apple is not a monopolist. Own Apple, don't trade it.
electrical / electronic
HOLD
A ruling today hit Apple hard after a judge today mostly ruled against Apple, that Apple must allow external links from their app store. This is a blow to Apple's profitability because the app store profit margins are huge. Epic, the videogamer who filed the suit, wanted to keep more autonomy and keep more of its revenue. A complication decision, but he doesn't know if this ruling will hold out. No idea. Until today, Apple's stock was ripping higher, and shares got hit today. You can trade this, but he thinks you shouldn't, but hold on. The news is bad for Apple, but good for third-party app developers.
