Today we hear again from analysts, specifically from Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI, who talk about the reports from shareholders who are pessimistic about Apple’s intentions to increase sales of the iPhone and iPad at the beginning of the year. According to him, the release of the iPhone 5se and the iPad Air 3 will not be enough to boost sales of the iDevices , which are already halfway through their life cycle, bringing sales progressively down .
They talk about a forecast of iPhone production in Q4 2015 of 77 million units , while the production of the same in Q1 2015 would fall by 44.2% to 43 million. In Q2 2016, considering that the stock of the iPhone is abundant and that the sales of the iPhone 5 will increase globally, we would speak of a production of between 42 and 45 million units.
But one thing they are quite optimistic about is with the arrival of the new MacBook in the first half of this year . It will be a strong candidate to become a super-seller and continue the line that Apple has in the computer market, where they are the only company that continues to grow while the rest sell less and less.
He also talks about the stock market, where Apple is not going through its best moments, but warns that the shares will grow by 30% from March to September, and that when the iPhone 7 comes out in September they will grow even more . We could see a price per share 50% higher from today until September of this year.
