Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) finding traction again
The buzz surrounding the new Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone XR is palpable. The company will begin taking orders for them this week, and begin shipping them next week. Apple stock, which had been weighed down by marketwide selling earlier this month, is finding traction again. At least one analyst believes the more affordably priced device could translate into record-breaking sales (by unit) for the quarter ending this month.
The buzz may well be justified. And, the analyst in question — TF International Securities’ Ming-Chi Kuo — may well be right. Apple could very well sell a stunning number of iPhones in the coming weeks now that it’s also offering models in the middle portion of the price spectrum.
In a subtle way, most current and prospective owners of AAPL stock don’t fully appreciate, though, the fourth quarter could end up being a pivotal moment for the company’s flagship product.
