BUY on WEAKNESS
Apple (AAPL-Q)

This has been in the middle of a great run. The tendency is for this to run up into a large product cycle, which is coming via the new iPhone. In the short term, it is probably a little overbought. He likes the Tech space as a whole. This company continues to dominate with its products. Would prefer to see it pull back to their moving average of $132-$135.

COMMENT
Apple (AAPL-Q)

Apple (AAPL-Q) or Alphabet (GOOGL-Q)? He owns both, and both are great holdings. The amazing thing about this one is that they have about 1 billion basically captive users of their products. What makes that even more impressive is that there is a 93% loyalty rate. They produce a ton of cash. A 3rd of their market cap is in cash. Trading well below the market multiple. A great core holding for any portfolio.

TOP PICK
Apple (AAPL-Q)

Although the stock has gone up considerably over 3-4 years, it is still not expensive, because the earnings growth has been there. Where can you buy a company that is trading at 15-16 times with the amount of cash on hand and this kind of a balance sheet. Dividend yield of 1.6%.  (Analysts’ price target is $145.)

COMMENT
Apple (AAPL-Q)

Companies go through cycles, and this one is on the downside of a cycle. ROC peaked in 2012, and ROC has been going down since that time. It is still at 15%, which is very respectable. Many companies would kill to have a 15% ROC. Valuation is OK, but doesn’t jump out as being super cheap. There are alternatives that you should be in. He would prefer something like Microsoft (MSFT-Q), Amazon (AMZN-Q), Facebook (FB-Q) or Google (GOOGL-Q). You aren’t going to get killed in this, but when there are alternatives that look so much more exciting, he would go with those.

COMMENT
Apple (AAPL-Q)

An excellent company and the street thinks so as well. The Bear case on this is that 60% of its earnings is the iPhone, and what are they going to do next that is a real mover. The whole ecosystem is so powerful that if you own one Apple product, you own a bunch of them.

Apple (AAPL-Q)

Partial Sell to buy Facebook (FB-Q)? He hasn’t done a lot of research on Facebook, so can’t give an opinion, but the valuation is not extreme and it is generating gobs of cash. However, Apple is cheaper and is doing great things.

COMMENT
Apple (AAPL-Q)

This was a great win for him for 8-9 years. Has been out of the name for about 2 years. He has always been a big believer in their eco-system, but is really confused by why they haven’t bought some of their competition.

(Market Call Minute.) A great company, but it is coming up to an unsustainable earnings level and their margins are going to be under pressure in the future.

(Top Pick Jan 5/16, Up 35.29%) He still likes the stock.  If you take out all the cash they are trading at 9 or 10 times earnings.

Apple (AAPL-Q)

He likes this. Over the last 4-5 months, iPhone 7 was not as bad as he had expected, and also the services side of the business is growing faster than he had thought it would. Also, that is in the context of a not very robust economy. Looking at the product cycle coming, some of the big improvements they’ve made in their laptop and the Mac business and its low valuation, he covered his Short position and is now Long.

COMMENT
Apple (AAPL-Q)

A number of analysts have said that this has had its day, it’s a hardware company and the innovation is done. Samsung was always a hardware competitor, and their problems is a great tailwind for this company. They have the tech right and the cameras are fantastic. People are more and more comfortable with the phones. It is becoming more of an integrated device with the watch. Conceptually he likes where the company is going. Technically, it looks phenomenal. Because of earnings, it has just broken up to resistance level, consolidating nicely and is ready to kick higher. He likes it.

SELL
Apple (AAPL-Q)

He does not like where it is.  We are against all time highs.  It could break out, but there is definitely resistance here.  You could write a put option and get paid about 5% yield over the next year.  If it drops 20% then you will have to buy it and that is fine.  This is how he would play AAPL-Q.  If the option expires, then just do it again.

PAST TOP PICK
Apple (AAPL-Q)

(Top Pick Feb 4/16, Up 37.06%) Great earnings.  The most profitable product ever invented.  They keep delivering.  Model price is $153.52, which is a 19% upside.  We will eventually get to EBV+6 and then to his model price and then he would sell.  This is a value stock, but it is losing its valuation differential.

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!
