Anticipating Apple’s monetary outcomes is frequently a case of simply coming up with huge numbers for both sales and earnings, however if you prefer your uncertainty to be a bit more nuanced, KGI Securities expert Ming-Chi Kuo has been outlining his thoughts on Apple’s recently completed financial quarter.
While Kuo does have as great a track record as any expert it is still worth bewaring over these predictions, if just because trying to develop numbers for Apple’s outcomes is a great balancing act of attempting not to come in too low. That stated, Kuo’s research notes are based upon solid supply chain information, so his guesses are as great as any individual’s.
The standout from Kuo’s newest note is that he believes the Apple Watch will see two new colors launch later on this year, with gold and rose gold aluminum designs set to join the current lineup. The reasoning here is that Apple is believed to be going along the exact same lines with the iPhone 6s launch in a few months, and Apple does tend to attempt and keep things fairly uniform as far as color options are worried. on the topic of the Apple Watch, Kuo is of the opinion that Apple will certainly struggle to satisfy some estimates for Apple Watch sales, with a figure of 5.5 million Apple Watches shipped for the existing quarter being his forecast.
As for the always popular iPhone, Kuo is choosing a fall to 40.1 million units shipped for this quarter, down from a price quote of 54.2 million devices during the 2nd calendar quarter. The fall is said to be due to the iPhone 6s being around the corner, and makes lots of sense. He also thinks the iPad will certainly continue its slide in sales, with a prediction of just 8.8 million units shipped in the existing quarter. Once more, brand-new models are expected within the next couple of months, potentially causing a slowdown in sales.
Apple’s Mac business, according to Kuo, will certainly have proven strong in the last quarter with 5.3 million units having actually delivered, increasing to 5.8 million for the existing quarter thanks to back to school sales.
We’ll understand the exact figures when Apple reveals them, however with the business said to be not likely to reveal Apple Watch sales we may have to take Kuo’s word for it because regard.
