Apple, Inc



Apple Inc. designs, manufactures, and markets smartphones, personal computers, tablets, wearables, and accessories worldwide. STOCK VALUE Poor value based on its PE Ratio of 19.5x compared to the Tech industry average of 16.8x. FINANCIAL HEALTH Earnings have grown by 4.1% per year over the past 5 years. Their debt to equity ratio (121%) is considered high but the debt is well covered by their operating cash flow. BULLISH OUTLOOK Apple has created an ecosystem that "simply works" in perfect harmony with other Apple products. Their customers are loyal and repeat sales are solid. Apple continues to release innovating new products. Recent products include Airpods and Apple+ streaming service. BEARISH OUTLOOK Apple prices their products at a premium. This could limit sales growth in times of economic uncertainty. Their prices may become too expensive for customers. Apple has always been known for their ecosystem that "Just works". If they ever were to product a flawed product it could diminish their entire business model. Apple is seen by competitors as being a step behind in innovation. Most notably, their SirI voice recognition is considered sub par compared to Google and Amazon. CHART SAYS
