2017-06-09 DON'T BUY David Dietze

He would not be a buyer here. It is right at the top of its range. A lot has been priced into them being able to repatriate cash from overseas if there is tax reform, but as the administration continues to get distracted, he thinks this gets pushed out. He also has questions about their innovation. A lot has been priced into their next version of the iPhone, and they are going to have to sell a lot of iPhones very quickly to justify it. In other areas, they seem to be falling flat.

2017-06-07 BUY Kash Pashootan

The stock is up about 55% or so over the last 52 weeks. We have to accept that this is a different company than what it was. Growth is going to become more challenging, which means it is going to go through periods where the stock doesn’t do much. He really likes their recent move. They are back to innovating. They continue to trap you into their ecosystem every time they come out with a new service or product. The stock is only trading at 17X.

2017-06-05 BUY Matthew McCall

AAPL-Q vs. GOOGL-Q vs. AMZN-Q.  He likes these two as well as AMZN-Q.  You could make a case for all three.  He owns all three.  These guys are changing the world.  AAPL has not had an announcement for a while, but will have announcements in the next year.  They could pull back a bit, but he would own all three.

2017-05-30 COMMENT Mike S. Newton, CIM FCSI

This has confounded him for this last year. The Apple ecosystem is phenomenally strong, but found it interesting in the last quarter that Chinese sales are actually declining in their ecosystem. His photos are confusing, he can’t find them, and sometimes they’re on somebody else’s phone. He is in a real neutral position right now.

2017-05-29 BUY Teal Linde

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.

2017-05-19 COMMENT John Petrides

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.

2017-05-18 DON'T BUY Matt Kacur

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.

2017-05-17 WAIT Cameron Hurst

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.

2017-05-16 COMMENT Lorne Steinberg

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.

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.

2017-05-08 HOLD Don Vialoux

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.

2017-05-01 COMMENT Paul Harris, CFA

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.

2017-04-27 BUY on WEAKNESS Mohsin Bashir

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.

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.

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!
