BUY
Apple (AAPL-Q)

The stock has been doing quite well even though their revenues are only growing at single digits.  They have always traded at a low multiple because of a narrow product line.  In the last quarter they said 20% of their profits are from Apple app store, Apple music and Apple iCloud, which are all high margin.  They think it can double in the next three years.  That would justify a higher multiple that you are seeing now.

COMMENT
Apple (AAPL-Q)

He still likes this despite its run up. It has a 4% position in the S&P 500 and is up 25%, and probably a 15% position in the NASDAQ. Has been a major driver of indices and performance year-to-date. The story is still attractive. You are getting the 10th anniversary of the iPhone in September, which should be a blockbuster product. By this time next year, with the new iPhone coming out, it has very low hurdle rates to jump over. Also, starting to ramp up their services business, which is very important for future growth. If and when Trump and the Republicans are able to pass through tax reform, this company has $250 billion of cash, whereby 95% of that is sitting overseas. If they were able to repatriate that cash and give it to shareholders, that would be a good thing.

DON'T BUY
Apple (AAPL-Q)

Not as bullish on this company as most people. They are so big, and it is hard for them to continue to get a good return on invested capital. Pretty much a one product company. All these things make him a little nervous. Also, it is not super cheap.

Apple (AAPL-Q)

You are looking at a product cycle, so the next iPhone iteration will be in September. The stock has had a great run. Statistically, there is a meaningful difference in the performance of the stock leading up to the release of a new product, and the 3 months following. A lot of the money has already been made on this.

COMMENT
Apple (AAPL-Q)

This company is doing everything right. He doesn’t own this, because 60% of earnings is because of the iPhone. If someone else comes out with a better mouse trap, it will have an impact. The valuation is not stretched.

COMMENT
Apple (AAPL-Q)

This breached $800 billion in market cap making it the largest stock ever. He likes to think he can buy a stock that will double his money in 5 years, and he can’t imagine this one will double in size in the next 5 years. Has a hard time getting excited about this.

HOLD
Apple (AAPL-Q)

This just hit an all-time high. Technically, you have to love this. Strong upward trend and outperforming the market. On a seasonal basis, it tends to move higher this time of year in anticipation of the September launches they always have. However, it does take a pause in May, June and early July. It doesn’t go down, it just kind of sits there for a while.

COMMENT
Apple (AAPL-Q)

An inexpensive technology stock. Wishes they would pay more of a dividend, simply because they have so much cash. The trouble is, a lot of earnings come from one product. That product can continue to grow, and is a very high margin product for them. Their service area is growing as well. Have a lot of cash, and they buy back a lot of shares. There is a good upgrade cycle on the phone. Their services business is additive, but not great. If they were allowed to bring their overseas cash back to the US, that would substantially help them out because they could buy back more of their shares.

BUY on WEAKNESS
Apple (AAPL-Q)

A myriad of multinational companies with off shore cash would be huge beneficiaries of the opportunity to repatriate cash.  He does not view Apple as a tech company, but as a consumer discretionary company.  This is one of highest weights on the NASDAQ.  There is probably room for continued dividend growth.  It would be a beneficiary of more relaxed regulatory action in the US.

COMMENT
Apple (AAPL-Q)

Loves this company. Has always been a big believer in the services side and was never too concerned about the fancy phone releases. The services side is going to be the real driver. Longer-term, we are probably looking at a $50 billion a year revenue line, just from the services side.

PAST TOP PICK
Apple (AAPL-Q)

(A Top Pick Dec 23/16. Up 23%.) This has been a great buy. Has reduced his holdings, because the catalysts he was looking for hasn’t happened yet. Two of them were related tax reforms, particularly the possible repeat duration of offshore funds. He is also hearing of delays of iPhone 8. He still likes this. Still at a reasonable valuation.

COMMENT
Apple (AAPL-Q)

Has a target price of about $168. The dividend will go up. Their new product seems to be taking hold. This is not expensive, trading at about 15X.

Apple (AAPL-Q)

The valuation is not expensive.  He loves it from that perspective.  The Samsung 8 is getting great reviews and that is putting pressure on AAPL-Q.  In a correction it could come back to $120 and would be more attractive there.  Wait for the next iPhone to come out.

(A Top Pick, May 5/16. Up 54%.) Had felt this was very cheap on a valuation basis. Trading at almost 10X earnings and has a great dividend yield. Still a very cheap tech stock.

PAST TOP PICK
Apple (AAPL-Q)

(A Top Pick May 3/16. Up 52%.) Feels the upgrade cycle is going to be a big cycle. They are building their service business really well. Trading at reasonable valuations. It is a big, big weight in the index, and there is a lot of money going into index funds, which is a positive. A very, very innovative company.

I don't understand why the experts keep saying this is a cheap company. The stock is over $600 per share. That's not cheap!
