The future of the actions of Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) is not clear, and the analyst affirms that the “mild month of June” is the period to be noted as impossible. Thanks to the Chinese location of Apple’s production plants, the company’s goals in March became more modest. Apple realizes the future on February 17, publishing the guide for March. In the report, the company did not specify the dates and numbers of sales and deliveries. In April, the company will release additional quarterly reports.
Thursday, the trading day ended badly for Apple. The company’s shares fell to $ 344.78, losing 0.77%. Today, AAPL is up over 2.50% to $ 251.06.
The daily price of the S&P 500 rose 0.47%, while Dow gained 0.95%. Markets appear to be nearing a fall, but no one knows the exact time. The frightening consequences of the coronavirus are still hidden behind the 2.3% gain of Nasdaq. Just like the unexpected resurrection of the cryptocurrency market.
Walkley says Apple Action (AAPL) is ready for a positive future. Customers are very attracted and the ecosystem has a huge impact. Have you ever wondered how many Apple devices are in the world? It’s 1.5 billion, according to official records. In 2021, the company plans to extract more value from the 5G upgrade for the new version of the iPhone. Walkley predicts that the market will drop during the summer. He says that only the second half of the year will bring profits.
iPhone, iPad: the manufacturer loses value
Despite the investor’s positive vibe about Apple, they hope the company will accomplish the sales tasks and goals. In recent months, investors have been worried about the 23% price loss. It is not the loss of Apple, but the loss of a Chinese plant-making device. The IT sector of the economy lost 28% over the same period, the S&P 500 falling 28.7%. The world market is losing its balance and needs urgent reconstruction. Some analysts predict that Apple will reach quarterly targets by posting at least $ 60.25 billion in profits.

Compared to 2019, this would be positive. As sales are expected to increase by 4.74%, while the share price would increase by + 12.7%.

“Our current central case is that demand will improve by the end of May.”
Bitcoin price could also improve in late May
Interesting, but the cryptocurrency market is full of expectations for halving Bitcoin. The measures taken to prevent the spread of the coronavirus have strongly drained the market. We can observe the panic of classic markets, total inventory sales and Wall Street stopped trading several times a week. Many people do not see any direct consequences to date. More than that, the decline in the liquidity of the dollar will make it lose value. Many countries in the world may want to increase their local currency by cutting the dollar.
For example, the ECB has planned to buy more Chinese yuan and less than the US dollar since 2018. Russia continues to buy gold, despite its economy being in congestion due to the attack of the virus. In particular, Russia has 40,000 artificial fans ready to fight for life. In Germany, they have 25,000 loans and 10,000 in reserve.
Once the world continues to attack the virus, all of the now cheap stocks will increase. Savvy players will continue to see opportunities even if everything falls apart.
