Apple price target raised to $290 from $270 at Piper Jaffray

Analyst Michael Olson raised his price target for Apple to $290
from $270 after surveying 569 domestic iPhone users.

The shares closed Thursday down $1.83 to $262.64.

The survey suggests a year-over-year improvement in upgrade
rates for the newly released device, Olson tells investors in a
research note.

Specifically, 35% of those surveyed have either already upgraded
to an iPhone 11 or 11 Pro or plan to within the coming months,
which is consistent with 35% in last year's survey, says the analyst.

He is modeling for flat year-over-year iPhone revenue in fiscal 2020,
which is consistent with consensus estimates, and says a "slight
improvement" in upgrade rates could signal potential for upside.

Further, while still nearly a year away, Olson believes the launch
of a 5G iPhone could also drive upgrades.

He maintains an Overweight rating on Apple shares.

Elizabeth Warren slams Goldman for handling of Apple Card bias

Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren has called out Goldman Sachs
(GS) for its handling of recent allegations that its credit decisions for
the Apple Card (AAPL) were biased, Bloomberg's Sridhar Natarajan,
Misyrlena Egkolfopoulou and Shahien Nasiripour report.

"Yeah, great. So let's just tell every woman in America, 'You might
have been discriminated against, on an unknown algorithm, it's on
you to telephone Goldman Sachs and tell them to straighten it out,''
Warren, who's vying for the Democratic nomination, said in an
interview.

"Sorry guys, that's not how it works."

JPMorgan ups Apple target to $290 on
'underappreciated' advertising opportunity

Analyst Samik Chatterjee raised his price target for Apple
to $290 from $280 and reiterates an Overweight rating on
the shares.

Following the stock's strong run, investor attention is increasingly
focusing on identifying new avenues of Services revenue growth
beyond the current ventures, such as Apple Music, Apple Pay,
Apple Arcade, and its latest, Apple TV+, "which are still very much
in early innings," Chatterjee tells investors in a research note.

However, he believes "hidden in plain sight and underappreciated
by most" is Apple's advertising opportunity.

The analyst highlights the "secular migration" of advertising dollars
to mobile platforms and Apple's large installed base of close to 1B
iPhone users.

Chatterjee estimates that if Apple were willing to accelerate
monetization of advertising through an expansion of its current
efforts with Apple Search Ads as well as adopting new strategies
around Apple TV, it could expand advertising revenues 33% per
annum to $11B in fiscal 2020 from an estimated ~$2B currently.

Piper Jaffray this morning also raised its target on Apple to $290.

I shall open up a can of worms:

So when will it split?

<Before it starts, yes, a split does not add value to the stock -
except for psychological value,
and makes the stock for attractive for small investors even though the value is the same.>

With the above understanding in mind:

When do you think it will split?

So when will it split?

I think it UNLIKELY to split in the near future for 4 reasons:

1) The stock trades at a future PER of 22 (high for AAPL).
A lot of splits are to boost PER to a competitive level.

2) A LOT of stocks trade above 100, 200, etc. There was
a time when an exchange would ask for a split when a stock
got over 100.

3) Last time AAPL split was 7:1, don't see that happening at
the current price.

4) Last split was to appease Carl Icahn, doubt they want to
appease some nondescript Stock Puppy :-)
