Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 5G Pricing
nother day, another Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) bull. Apple’s price target was raised to $290 from $270 at Bank of America. The analysts like what they see, with well-priced wearables and strong demand for the iPhone. While demand for the new phone is solid now, they remain optimistic further out too, with a 5G iPhone expected to drop next year. That should generate unit sales of 200 million or more from calendar year 2020 to 2022.
Building on that topic, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, doesn’t think the device will cost consumers significantly more. He say there shouldn’t be a large price increase of the new 5G iPhones next year compared to the iPhone 11 pricing. The price increase should only be about $30-$100, depending on the model, but Apple should be able to cut down costs via supply chain improvements.
The good news for Apple didn’t stop there, as Evercore also upped Apple’s price target from $275 to $305. That’s thanks to the high demand this holiday season for the iPhone 11 and the AirPods.
Of course, it’s worth mentioning that Apple hit a new all-time high on Wednesday.
