Apple(AAPL-Q) 

February 19, 2019

He bought a $175 July call for $8 and sold twice as many $190 July expiry. That's a ratio call spread: he bought a call at a lower strike price and sold twice as many calls at a higher strike price; his higher strike was $190. So if Apple trades up to $190, he starts losing money. He's got no money out of his pocket because he brought in enough money from the sale of two options. That long option will benefit all the way to $190. It's a good trade, but keep an eye on it. He doesn't normally like that with a volatile company, because specific events can make that stock rise dramatically. That said, he understands why one would do this with AAPL, but not with Netflix or Facebook.

Not expensive, trading around 12x earnings and has lots of cash. It's buying back shares and raising its dividend. The issue is that the iPhone has not added many innovative features lately. So, Apple is having trouble getting the volume at these prices. Apple no longer gives information about its sales, too. They talk about their services business growing, but it's driven by the iPhone business. They have a lot of cash, but they've never bought anything, at least nothing big.

PAST TOP PICK
Apple(AAPL-Q) 

February 8, 2019

(A Top Pick Jan 12/18, Down 2%) This is a stock he would "go to war with". He sees about 15% upside from here. He would be a long term buy and hold at $100, otherwise trade it looking to enter at $142.

Add on dips? Yes, you can. The company has been going through a transition as iPhone sales are slowing. But the service business will grow as long as Apple continues to make investments. Though Apple has recovered from its dips, don't chase this. Wall St. can be fickle. This will trade at a maximum 15x multiple. Apple needs to build its content in the face of its tech rivals. Overall, a great company.

It is one of his top ideas this year. The ecosystem they have means he sends them money each month for storage. Here is a consumer company trading at only 9 times earnings.

He's owned this, but he's worried with its reliance on the iPhone and we're seeing concerns about that demand. That's hurting Apple now. Other products like the Watch won't make a dent. It hasn't bounced much from the December lows either.

It is a cash rich company and only holds debt for tax purposes. He doesn't want to own it although he has a lot of their products. 2/3 of their business is iPhones and that business is stagnant. It needs to develop a new breakthrough product.

Pretty good stock, but recent drop is significant. For the past 20 years, when it drops like this, it's gone on to make new highs. But Chinese growth announcement, plus high phone price, is different. Chart worries him, because it's dropped below significant support of $163. Wouldn't be a buyer. Not a lot of volume supporting yesterday's turnaround, would need to see it above $160.

The cycle has been weak, so their shares have sold off hard, down 35% off its peak. He doesn't expect it to fall much more, based on past down cycles and pullbacks in this stock. Apple boasts great cash flow. They're selling more services and Apple Music which offer higher margins. (Analysts’ price target is $216.84)

To stay ahead as a technology company is difficult. It looks like iPhone sales will come down now. It should be a debt free company but they have a huge debt load. Most other tech companies have lost their luster at some point. The question is when it will happen to this one. He would rather they pay a dividend to shareholders than to have their debt. He questions their huge share buy-backs as well because they are doing it so far above book value.

Their latest earnings report said they would not report unit growth and the industry has been upset. In two years Apple will be involved in 5G and everyone will want it. This will be very good for the company. It trades at 12 times earnings and holds $25 per share in net cash. They have over 1 billion installed devices with loyalty rates over 90%. Yield 1.8%. (Analysts’ price target is $219.55)

Apple or Qualcom? Apple will win. Qualcomm got a small victory, but then Apple worked around it. Like the royalties lawsuit, you have to pick your battles.

It has a bright future. The i-phone is not going to look the same in 10 years time. We will have a chip embedded in our heads and neuro-technology is developing rapidly. It is really happening. this company is investing massively in Health Care. People don't mind sharing their data if they get value out for it. Trading at a reasonable valuation. One of the most innovative companies out there. Strong balance sheet. They are transitioning to a service company.
