Piper Jaffray, Morgan Stanley, others raise AAPL targets

11/21, 2:10am

Strength of iPhone 6 demand, Apple Watch predictions to fuel growth, analysts say

Two leading investment and analysis firms have joined with others in raising AAPL target prices recently, in part because the stock has already outperformed most expectations on its most recent bull run. Longtime Apple analyst Gene Munster from Piper Jaffray has raised his target from $120 to $135 on the strength of iPhone 6 demand, while Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty raised her view to $126 per share from the previous $115, which the stock has already surpassed. The two join a growing list of AAPL bulls.

Apple closes week breaking all-time stock high, market cap

11/14, 8:15pm

Record falls even taking into account split, buyback programs

Apple on Friday ended the week with a new all-time record high for its stock, even taking into account the huge swing in the number of outstanding shares, which has changed significantly in the past two years. Last reaching its peak in September of 2012, the company has now broken its record for both its stock price and its highest-ever market capitalization, which now stands at $669.65 billion, with the stock still rising in after-hours trading from its Friday close of $114.18 per share.

AAPL closes at new high, closes in on split-adjusted all-time high

11/11, 9:19pm

Split, buyback program makes true all-time high price a moving target

Apple's stock closed at a new "all-time" high today, settling at $109.70 per share after an intra-day high of $109.75 -- breaking the record set just over a week ago. The company, now valued at $643.37 billion -- more than a third more than the next most valuable publicly-traded company -- may be within sight of besting its own split- and buyback-adjusted all-time high and market capitalization records, which would currently be around $113.86 per share and $667.77 billion, respectively.

11/01, 2:19am

Stock is up nearly 35 percent for 2014, has reduced outstanding shares by 800M

Shareholders of record in AAPL as of November 6 will receive a dividend of 47 cents per share once again in the second dispersal of revenue since the stock was split 7-to-1 last June. The company will pay out some $2.75 billion in dividends on 5.866 billion outstanding shares -- about 800 million fewer shares than seen before the aggressive share buyback program started last year. The stock closed the week at an all-time record high of $108 per share for the second week running.

AAPL hits all-time high, may close week at record levels

10/23, 7:56pm

Icahn endorsement, strong iPhone sales, coming holiday behind push

Apple's stock on Thursday hit a new all-time closing high, reaching $104.83 per share at the closing bell. While many are waiting to see if the company can close the week at that level or higher, others -- including activist investor Carl Icahn and CEO Tim Cook -- believe the stock remains undervalued. AAPL also set a new intra-day high of $105.05 during trading, and is up slightly from its close at this writing in after-hours trading. Stronger-than-expected iPhone numbers and the coming holiday season has helped fuel the rise.

Cook reveals surprising $17B AAPL stock buyback in Q4

10/21, 10:29pm

Now at $45 billion in buybacks for the year, double its 2013 buying spree

During its conference call to analysts, Apple CEO Tim Cook mentioned that the company had spent $17 billion in the fourth fiscal quarter on further stock buybacks, the largest amount since the March quarter and bringing the total spent across the fiscal year to $45 billion. About half of the money was spent buying shares on the open market rather than through banking partners, an unusual move for a large corporation. The stock came close to another record high on Tuesday, but has yet to crack its $110 all-time (adjusted for both splits and buybacks) share high.

Demand for larger sizes, increase average selling price drive analyst interest

Apple is not the only company that believes the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will not only drive a bigger upgrade cycle, but also bring at least some switchers from the Android platform. Evercore Partners analyst Rob Cihra has reiterated his "overweight" rating for AAPL and raised the price target to $125, along with encouraging investors to buy the stock in a new memo to clients. He also published optimistic estimates for both the September and December quarters in terms of iPhone sales.

'Bendghazi' controversy not phasing sales, swift refutation by Apple credited

After falling four percent on Thursday, Apple's stock closed out the week by bouncing back and regaining more than half the drop as Wall Street reacted positively to the company's refutation of the "bending" controversy. Some new questions are being raised about the original video that started the kerfuffle, as careful observation reveals that the video was edited (and the reported noted in the video that his iPhone 6 was already slightly bent before demonstrating the flaw). Investment firms Stifel Nicolaus and BMO Capital Markets have both raised their target prices for AAPL.

Cantor Fitzgerald, Piper Jaffray push expections to $120 and beyond

The long-awaited but finally-approaching arrival of larger-screen iPhone models and Apple's probable entries into health, home automation and mobile payments have some Wall Street analysts believing Apple's oft-repeated mantra that its forthcoming product and services pipeline is the strongest the company has had in years, if not ever. In new notes to clients, both Cantor Fitzgerald and Piper Jaffray have raised targets for AAPL to new all-time highs.

AAPL closes at 52-week high, approaches all-time record

08/19, 9:51pm

Compelling endorsement from Morgan Stanley may encourage buyers

Apple's stock closed on Tuesday with a new 52-week high, and at one point in the day threatened to top its all-time highest stock price (based on straight split-adjustment). It officially closed at $100.53, not far from its all-time split-adjusted high of $100.72, though it hit $100.68 in intra-day trading. The company's valuation also rose to a market cap of $602 billion.

07/30, 7:00pm

Analyst talks of iOS 'everywhere,' Cook's bold strategies

Six weeks after it rebutted a New York Times editorial that cast doubt on Apple's CEO, investment firm UBS has again praised Tim Cook's vision and leadership of Apple in a note to clients. In particular, analyst Steven Milunovich was taken with Cook's plans to expand iOS to automotive, gym, medical and home markets through its CarPlay, HealthKit and HomeKit initiatives, as well as the continuing growth of the entire OS X and iOS eco-systems, which the company refers to as "the Applesphere."

Expects 'busy fall' with new iPhone, long-awaited 'iWatch' debuts

Despite some disappointments in Apple's latest quarterly earnings report, analysts appear to be satisfied that the company's overall financial picture is in order, particularly on the strength of rising margins and strong developing market sales. The stock closed up $2.47 on Tuesday (an increase of 2.61 percent) to close at $97.19, not far from its 52-week high. On Tuesday, RBC Capital Markets raised its year-end target price to $110, joining Barclays and Morgan Stanley in predicting the company would hit an all-time high this year.

Morgan Stanley, Barclays raise AAPL target to all-time high $110

07/15, 2:38am

Expected 'iWatch' acceptance, customer loyalty, new iPhone, strong management all factors

On the same day as Apple's stock hit a 52-week high, closing at $96.43 per share on Monday, two major brokerage houses have upped their predictions for year-end AAPL prices to $110, which would put the stock past its best-ever performance, even adjusted for the number of additional shares created. Morgan Stanley credited strong customer loyalty which will in turn drives initial sales of the long-rumored "iWatch," while Barclays analyst Ben Reitzes expresses new confidence in Apple management.

Analysts optimistic on iPhone sales in June, December quarters

07/02, 8:33pm

More carriers, more countries to carry iPhone sales in June, leading to new models for holidays

At least some Wall Street analysts believe that Apple may have found a way to do well in the traditionally-slower summer months leading up the reveal of the next iPhone, expected sometime this fall. Maynard Um of Wells Fargo believes that Apple may be in a position to set an all-time record for June quarterly sales in its next report , predicting the company has sold some 36.5 million smartphones by opening up new markets. Meanwhile, Evercore Partners analyst Rob Cihra looks to a spectacular holiday season.

Analysts update price targets for AAPL on strength of iPhone

06/24, 10:36pm

Pundits' expectations for 'iPhone 6' models fuel upbeat speculation

Analyst Charlie Wolf of investment firm Needham has taken the unusual step of breaking his twice-yearly cycle of AAPL price target updates, revising a forecast announced back before the most recent stock split that has remained "underwater" -- below the trading price -- since well before the split occurred. Wolf's previous guess of $590 (or a split-adjusted $86.32), issued back in February, has now been upgraded to a conservative $97 target. Other analysts have also raised their estimates for the company recently.

RBC analyst says AAPL to hit $100 per share in second half of 2014

Believes 2014 iPhone will do well in larger sizes, new products still to come

Nearly a working week after AAPL began trading on a split-adjusted basis, RBC Capital Markets analyst Amit Daryanani notified his clients that he has adjusted his price target for the stock from $96 to $100 per share. He stopped short of predicting the company would break its all-time high of (adjusted) $100.72, which it achieved in September of 2012. The stock declined slightly on Thursday, and is now $8.44 away from breaking that record -- a feat many analysts predict will happen this year.

AAPL hits new 52-week high mark ahead of 7:1 stock split

05/27, 10:20pm

Price may be rising on WWDC speculation rather than split

As anticipation builds ahead of Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) for possible new product announcements, Apple's stock has been concurrently rising ahead of a seven-to-one stock split, fuelling investor interest. On Tuesday, AAPL rose to a 52-week high, closing at $625.71 -- a rise of $11.58 from Monday's close.

Aggressive reinvestment plan, expected new products resonating

As of the closing bell on Monday, Apple's stock exceeded $600 for the first time since October 26, 2012, setting a new 52-week high for the company and rising further in after-hours trading. The stock closed at $600.96 for the day and presently stands at $602.21 in the after-hours market. Apple's aggressive changes in share buyback, increasing dividends, an upcoming 7:1 stock split and expected new products coming later this year have combined to make the stock attractive again.

Shares up $70 since announcements of expanded buybacks, more

Apple's stock closed on Monday at a year-to-date high-water mark, closing in on $600 as the repeated message of last week's earnings call -- Tim Cook's "we believe the stock to be undervalued" mantra -- appeared to sink in on the back of better-than-expected iPhone sales, an expansion of the stock buyback program and an announced 7-to-1 stock split taking place next month. The stock has jumped almost exactly $70 since last Thursday.

Dividends also to go up on an annual basis in moves to increase stock value

In a surprise announcement, Apple will do a 7:1 stock split on June 6, giving stockholders of record as of June 2 an additional six shares for every one share of stock they currently hold. Trading will resume on June 9 at the split-adjusted price, which CEO Tim Cook has said the company wants to be more affordable so that smaller investors can get into the stock. Given today's closing price of $524.75, the average price of a share would drop to $75 if the split were happening now.

Analyst: Expect 'modest' buyback, dividend increases from Apple

04/02, 6:22pm

Company likely to announce adjusted policies during next earnings call

Tech analyst Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray has told investors in a new memo that he expects "moderate" increases in both Apple's share-buyback program and its dividend to shareholders, likely to be announced during the company's next earnings call, scheduled for April 23. This belief, he noted, is already "priced into" shares of AAPL and is unlikely to take price any higher in and of itself. The current quarterly dividend, raised last year, is $3.05 per common share.

Ignores developing markets, or Apple's other products

There is a tendency among analysts to think of Apple as only "the iPhone maker" and ignore its other products and services, feeling that the fortunes of its most popular and profitable product -- the iPhone -- is the key to the company's overall health, at least in terms of its performance on Wall Street. Barclay's analyst Ben Reitzes told investors in a memo on Thursday that he expects AAPL to stay within a narrow range for the next two years.

Apple buys back another $14 billion in stock after Q1 results

Cook eager to show investors that company is confident in future

Just two weeks after it reported its fiscal Q1 2014 results -- which set records in many areas but disappointed iPhone-focused investors -- Apple CEO Tim Cook has revealed in an interview that the company has repurchased another $14 billion of its own stock , on top of over $40 billion spent on buybacks over the past year. Some $12 billion of the new purchase was part of the regular buyback program, with another $2 billion bought separately on the open market.

Tensions rise among investors as AAPL dividend nears

02/05, 9:00pm

Icahn, CalPERS at odds over buyback strategy ahead of shareholders' meeting

The close of the market today, which saw Apple's stock rise $3.80 to close at $512.59, marked the beginning of the company's "ex-dividend" period, where no new trades of AAPL will be included in dividend calculations. Shareholders of record will receive $3.05 per share beginning Thursday, February 13, with the annual shareholders' meeting scheduled to take place two weeks later. The question of how Apple manages its enormous cash hoard has become something of a public spat between two large-volume investors, Carl Icahn and the California Public Employees' Retirement System (CalPERS).

Report: Tim Cook docked himself as much as he earned in 2013

12/31, 12:43am

Cook tied his reward more closely with stock performance over company performance

A move made by Apple CEO Tim Cook and the board of directors at Apple has ended up costing Cook some $4 million in additional bonuses over the previous arrangement, according to proxy statements filed by the company over the weekend. Cook annually receives a stock grant, but because AAPL didn't outperform the overall S&P500 average to which the award is tied, Cook lost about half of the grant, which would currently be worth about $4 million.

AAPL jumps to 2013 high on Black Friday in half-day session

Stock's recent rise reflects expectations for record quarter

Apple's stock finally surpassed its previous 2013 high on Friday, beating the $549.03 mark to close at $556.07. The former high mark came on January 2, reflecting a year that saw the company doing brisk business in revenues, but penalized by Wall Street for lacking any category-redefining product or service, and being slow to update existing products. The perception -- not wholly accurate -- that Apple was losing influence and marketshare also played a role.

Rogue AAPL trader sentenced to 30 months in prison

11/19, 8:30pm

David Miller brought down his employer, still faces civil lawsuit

A former stock trader who bankrupted his former employer in a bet on Apple stock that went bad, and who pleaded guilty to wire fraud and conspiracy in a plea deal, has been sentenced to prison for his crimes - for one-tenth of the maximum time he faced. David Miller, 41, will serve 30 months in prison for his scheme to buy more than 1,000 times the amount of AAPL a customer ordered, on the same day that Apple was to announce its third-quarter revenues in 2012. He planned to sell the excess stock when the price rose, and pocket the difference for himself.

Apple to issue $3.05 per share on Thursday in latest dividend

11/13, 9:01pm

Nearly $3 billion 'returned' to shareholders in latest payout

If you held any AAPL stock as of last Wednesday, your account is going to get a little boost tomorrow. Apple will be paying $3.05 per share to "shareholders of record" as of November 6 in the latest quarterly dividend, which arrives tomorrow and totals nearly $3 billion, a 15 percent rise from the year-ago quarter. While the amount Apple has paid out has gone up over the last few quarters, the company has actually saved billions in stock buybacks.

Google still king of mutual funds; upcoming iOS launches deemed key

On top of the long-awaited upward trend in AAPL in recent weeks, hedge-fund investors have begun returning to Apple for investments as well -- a positive sign for continued stock growth. Apple's stock is now once again the most-held stock among hedge fund investors, though Google continues to be the most popular stock with mutual-fund investors. Google was briefly the top pick among both groups of investors last March.

AAPL tops $500 on Friday as Icahn-inspired rally continues

08/16, 8:00pm

Investors like idea of bigger buyback, possibly imminent iPhone release

Apple's stock closed above $500 on Friday, continuing a recent rally that began after investor Carl Icahn revealed both an interest in having Apple buy back more of its own stock as well as his holding of a "very large" position in the company, which he said was "undervalued." His comments, alongside further legal wins, upcoming product releases and other general good news for the company, has seen the stock rise from $393.78 per share in late June to close at $502.33 today. It is continuing its gains in after-hours trading.

Apple re-takes crown as world's most valuable company

08/01, 7:45pm

Stock surge in anticipation of fall products pushes AAPL back up

Though things could change again tomorrow, Apple on Thursday once again became the world's most valuable publicly-traded company by market cap, rising $4.15 (nearly a percentage point) to close at $456.68 per share (and still rising in after-hours trading, currently at $457.65). With a value approaching $415 billion, the company re-took the crown from Exxon Mobil, which fell by a dollar after a bad earnings report and lowered its overall market cap to $412 billion. AAPL has risen almost $50 over the past month, but is still off its 2013 high of $549.03 per share.

Board members Drexler, Campbell follow in Oppenheimer's footsteps

Less than a week after Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer sold some of his AAPL holdings to the tune of $16.4 million, two other members of Apple's board have let go of smaller amounts of stock, grossing a total of $19 million before taxes in recent days. Long-standing board member and J. Crew CEO Millard Drexler sold 32,562 shares in the company (gaining $14.6 million) while Intuit Chairman William Campbell sold 10,000 shares for a gross gain of $4.4 million.

Though both the S&P and Dow Jones averages rose little on Tuesday, Apple stock rose 1.2 percent to close at $453.32 -- the first time the stock has closed over $450 since mid-May, and on the heels of the revelation that Apple CEO Tim Cook is again in China, talking to current partners and possibly trying to break the logjam that has kept the iPhone out of China's largest carrier, China Mobile. This is Cook's third trip to China since becoming CEO, with all the trips centered on boosting iPhone sales in the region.

Rogue broker ruins own firm, defrauds another in bad bet

David Miller, a former stock trader who brought down his employer in a bet on Apple stock, has pleaded guilty to wire fraud and conspiracy in a plea deal reached with prosecutors. The incident began when Miller improperly bought 1,000 times the number of shares requested by a customer, expecting Apple's stock price to rise and then selling off the excess stock and pocketing the profit before the fraud was noticed. He had been facing up to 25 years in prison for the fraud, but instead will likely see a five-to-eight year sentence.

03/01, 7:45pm

Pundits fear competition, productions issues hurting Apple

On Friday, AAPL closed the week by dropping nearly $11 to $430.87, its lowest point since January 2012. The stock has now lost nearly 40 percent from its all-time high of $705 a share, and despite healthy sales forecasts and a string of better news for the company, including the dropping of David Einhorn's "silly sideshow" lawsuit over the issuing of preferred stock. The falling price comes in the face of Wall Street managing to eek out a tiny gain for the day, in spite of news that congressional leaders are unable to avoid the so-called "sequestration" crisis.

Cook: don't put a lot of stock in AAPL rumors

01/23, 9:41pm

Suggests that analysts don't have full picture, rely on bad info

Both CEO Tim Cook and CFO Peter Oppenheimer took time in today's conference call with analysts to specifically (or by inference) debunk a number of recent rumours about the company, and to suggest to analysts that they rely too heavily on bad information -- and that even when they do get a bit of gossip that turns out to be true, they are unable to see the information in the broader context, which may change its interpretation. It was a rare direct assault on the market-manipulation and other forces that have plagued the company and its stock.

See consensus-beating iPhone sales as likely

Reinforcing the notion that some of Apple's recent stock-price tumble may be down to call options timing and manipulations of the media meant to keep the price low, two prominent investment houses have painted a bright picture for the company based on the expectation that Apple will be able to beat consensus estimates on its flagship iPhone sales. One firm has raised year-end targets on the stock to a staggering $1,111 -- more than double the current price.

Institutional buyers, others may have a fix in against AAPL

In the wake of considerable media backlash over a highly-questionable Wall Street Journal story claiming that Apple had cut back orders on iPhone parts to "half" previous levels -- a claim now clearly shown to be inaccurate -- AAPL has dropped to its lowest price in nine months, closing on Tuesday at $485.92 (though it is up to almost $490 in after-hours trading). Evidence has now emerged that some investors may be deliberately trying to suppress the stock.

China Mobile issues, sales slowdown rumors behind fall

Apple's stock took an unexpected beating in the market on Wednesday, losing 6.43 percent of its value and shedding some $35 billion in market capitalization after the worst single-day drop in price in almost four years. AAPL lost just over $37 per share on a combination of worries, rumors and unsubstantiated reports. The loss was so dramatic that it accounted for the whole of NASDAQ's 1.1 percent drop for the day, even while the Dow and other indexes rose slightly. The iPad maker is now hovering just over $508 billion in valuation.

Cash-in plan backfires, leaves company with heavy losses

A now-fired broker at Rochdale Securities tried to quickly cash in on a stock windfall generated by Apple's earning announcements, but ended up costing his employer millions and has been arrested and charged with fraud. David Miller's scheme was roiled when AAPL fell instead of rose on the company's record-breaking quarter, due to a slip in expected iPad growth. It is charged that he improperly bought 1,000 times the number of shares requested by a customer, planning to dump the excess and pocket the profit when the price went up.

Eddy Cue joins Apple execs selling stock to avoid tax hike

Capital gains taxes scheduled to go up next year

Apple's Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue has become the latest executive to dispose of a significant quantity of AAPL stock, according to a filing at the SEC. Cue has sold off nearly all of his shares (though he will be receiving more soon) to the tune of $8.76 million, parting with 15,000 shares and holding (albeit temporarily) just 285 shares presently. Like a number of other Apple executives, Cue is likely selling the shares to avoid a almost-certain rise in the rate of capital-gains taxation taking effect in January.

Including that gift, the total value of the 19,726 shares sold is approximately $10.73 million, minus any applicable taxes. Riccio replaced the formerly-retiring Bob Mansfield as head of hardware engineering, with Mansfield returning to the company to head up a new "Technologies" group.

Hedge funds bail on AAPL, trigger six-month low

11/15, 7:51pm

Investors strangely skittish, perhaps on capital gains fears

A dubious analysis by CNBC of the culprits behind the unusual downturn in Apple's stock price has identified hedge funds as having dumped their shares in the world's most valuable publicly-traded company in an effort to take profits from it before the end of the year. AAPL, which has seen a spectacular increase in value over the last several years, is thought by some analysts to be heading for a period of less-remarkable gains now that competition in the smartphone and tablet space has matured, which may have triggered the drop in price.

Apple's stock has regained some $82 billion in market capitalization in just the last seven weeks, closing today just shy of $610, the first time the stock has ended the trading day over $600 per share since late April. It hit a low of $530 per share in mid-May but has steadily climbed back since then, and is trading above $610 in after-hours activity this evening. Predictions of strong foreign sales may be behind the recent rise.

Stock reaching further in after-hours trading

Another significant milestone was reached today as Apple's stock (AAPL) closed over $600 for the first time ever, though it has hit that mark in intra-day trading on recent occasions. Investors reacted strongly to the news this morning that the company would begin paying a dividend on stock for the first time since 1995, starting in the July quarter. Hints and finally confirmation of explosive sales of the new iPad also helped push the stock up.

Apple stock cracks $400 barrier, holds steady after-hours

Up 24 percent in 2011, 44.81 percent Y/Y
