(A Top Pick Oct 22/18, Up 8%) Consumers re-purchase their products and their service division is strong. However, the China trade tension gives him pause; so, he's watching the trade talks. He's also worried about the NBA controversy in China. Cautious.

(A Top Pick Nov 27/18, Up 31%) He continues to like them for many reasons. The cloud services, the app store and others continue to do well. It is indefensible and people keep buying their products. They increased iPhone orders for parts by 10% -- a good sign. His largest since equity holding.

He likes this company, but it is not as cheap as it was back in December. Investors are mistakingly waiting for the next big device -- it is not coming, he thinks. You want to focus on the 1.5 billion of installed devices -- a great way to keep customers stuck with your company (cloud, tv, etc.). The iPhone has become a much smaller part of the pie -- it represents less than 50% of their revenues today.

What happens to the USMCA during the US election and impeachment? If Congress doesn't push USMCA through it will impact the markets and create trouble. Continues to be good, but the issue that their phone continues to generate most of its revenues, despite Apple's move into services. Also the move into streaming will eat up capital. 5G in 2020 will have a great impact on the iPhone. Can they drive their services to more growth. Apple continues to buyback shares and raise dividends, though.

Sure, a phenomenal company, but there's too much product risk: 50% of its business comes from only the iPhone. They're transitioning to services, but that will take time. People will hang onto their phones for a long time, and won't buy as many new ones.

Has some concerns. Stock's been sideways the past year. Much of its revenues come from the iPhone, and they're trying to expand beyond this. People won't pay $1000+ for the next iteration of the phone. Lots of cash flow and cash on the books. Would look elsewhere for growth. Doesn't see how its streaming will fit in with the landscape.

He has not owned it for a couple of years. They own elements of the supply chain for what goes into the iPhone instead. It is not as geared to the sales growth of the product. He feels Apple has done a big pivot to the other service offerings they are doing. He would be a buyer near $180 and short it at $220.

Sell Amazon and Apple now? The stock has stagnated the past two years, but it makes more money. Apple keeps investing in near projects, which is a good sign. Hold onto both of them for the long haul. He owns a lot of each.

Apple reported after the bell and overall it was a beat--he's happy. They beat earnings by 8 cents a share; revenues beat; and their revenue projections for the next quarter are surprisingly bullish. What impressed him most was how the non-iPhone revenues are growing, namely services. Services are annuity revenue, keep giving. 10 years ago, people wrote off Microsft, but they missed the story. MSFT transformed itself into a utility--you have to pay MSFT each year for the service. Same with Apple which is now making money in services. Also, their wearables division is exploding, says their CEO. He's happy with their report today. And their iPhones in 2020 will be 5G-equipped, which will encourage customers to upgrade. The only cloud on the horizon is Trump.
