What’s The New Core In Apple NASDAQ:AAPL?
SSNLF, GOOG, SHCAY
A look at Apple’s balance says that the revolutionary company that changed how we listen to music, use a computer, energized the SmartPhone and tablet industries is alive and well. Its has more than $40-B in profits for F-Y 2012, more than any non-Oil company ever earned.
But for Apple its devotees seem to be signaling what are you going to do for us in the future?
Last week, investors sent the stock down more than 12 percent, the lowest performance in years, after Apple’s Quarterly revenue came in below estimates. The stock is down 16% on the year and it is just February.
There is concern on Wall Street that Apple lacks the innovators required to deliver the next thing that will change the we people live.
Some analysts are saying that Apple is the victim of its successes and will not bring anything really important to market in Y 2013
Since the release of the iPod in Y 2001, the tech giant has been a leader in innovation, and dominating each industry it enters with a product that changed the way things work.
Those who follow Apple believe that contrary to the stock’s recent performance, Y 2013 will be a year of significant Apple innovation.
It is not widely know, but Apple plans to update its current LCD display screens on all of its next-generation devices using a new technology developed by Japanese electronics maker Sharp PINK:SHCAY, called IGZO.
The IGZO technology has displays that are flexible and are 40% faster than today’s displays and consume 30% less power, that says that the new iPhone may be flexible and come in different shapes.
Nevertheless there are industry experts that believe a new design for the same SmartPhone is not enough to get investors re-energized. Investors are not looking for a new phone shape that bends, they are looking for something really innovative, really big to prove that Tim Cook is something other than a suit in a black T-shirt pretending…as many as 30% of people in a recent survey in NYC said Apple is suffering from a lack of or lapse in innovation.
There is lots of speculation On The Street and In The Street
Apple HDTV will be the next game changing invention. AAPL HDTV is a system that links home appliances is on the horizon, others say in-car accessories is a market that is begging for Apple’s innovation.
One analyst recently interviewed said television definitely the next area where investors are looking in terms of innovation. Shayne Heffernan of HeffCap is also looking to HDTV as a revolution in how we use or TVs.
Taking that POV from comments by Apple’s founder, the late Steve Jobs, as a hint of what is to come with Apple TV.
In Mr. Jobs Y 2011 authorized biography, author Walter Isaacson wrote that Steve Jobs had finally “cracked” the secret to the innovation saying, “I would like to create an integrated television set that is completely easy to use,”
Mr. Jobs told Mr. Isaacson. “It will have the simplest user interface you could imagine.”
According to a Wall Street Journal report, Apple TV would “give viewers the ability to start any show at any time through a digital-video recorder that would store TV shows on the Internet. Viewers even could start a show minutes after it has begun.”
In December, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that television is, “a market that we see that has been left behind.”
Analysts predict Apple TV, equipped with email, text messaging and social media integration could launch as early as the Fall of Y 2013.
It is notable that Several Apple retail stores have moved into larger spaces hinting the company has plans to roll out larger products. This shift is to create space for television because a television needs more viewing area and more space so customers can watch, look and overall experience it.
Apple has made an investment in solar technology, and that could indicate an expanded iCloud that includes the streaming of television shows.
The uncoupling of rising profits and declining stock price leads to mixed predictions from pundits and analysts as to Apple’s future. Shayne Heffernan sees the stock over $830 this year.
Apple’s Key rivals, including Samsung PINK:SSNLF, and Google NASDAQ:GOOG, have launched products that is taking share away from Apple’s consumer market, the Samsung Galaxy S3 in November topped Apple as the # 1 selling SmartPhone in the world, as every other SmartPhone company has caught up with Apple
An article that appeared in Slate, stated that despite Apple’s competition releasing quality products, they could not match Apple’s numbers in US sales, that Q-4 of Y 2012, according to PCMag.com, the iPhone 5 was ranked the best-selling SmartPhone in the US.
