Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) to benefit from weaker dollar, carrier promotions
Barclays raises Apple Inc’s target price by 9 pct to $175 expecting favorable FX and heavy carrier promotions in U.S. and China.
The dollar has depreciated 4 pct y/y in June-qtr, which could add 370 bps benefit to AAPL’s revenue if it stays at current levels, broker says.
Carrier promotions for iPhones through discounts and subsidies in U.S. and China may increase near-term sales, broker adds.
However, Barclays says demand pressure may return next year.
