2016 was not a good year for Apple. The Cupertino saw how iPhone sales stopped rising and rising for the first time since 2007, which was accompanied by the typical "Apple is doomed" and some nervousness by some investors who sold all their shares of the company that leads Tim Cook. But everything seems to indicate that the situation will change in 2017, or began to change at the end of 2016, since Barclays believes that Apple will publish a new profit record next January 31.
To be more exact, Barclays estimates that Cupertino's will publish a record of benefits that it will reach 76,600M $ when they publish the results of the first fiscal quarter of 2017, which coincides with the months October, November and December 2016. A year ago, Apple achieved profits of $ 75.9 billion in a quarter whose iPhone sales problems were not yet seen reflected. According to Barclays, this year's benefits will be between $ 76,000-78,000M.
Will there be a new Apple record this month?
But Barclays is not the only company that thinks Apple will publish a new profit record next Tuesday. UBS believes that Tim Cook and company will announce benefits of $ 77.8 billion, which exceeds the forecasts of the apple company. UBS analyst Steven Milunovich maintains the "buy" label on Apple shares.
On the other hand, Mark Moskowitcz, of Barclays, remains skeptical about the success of the iPhone 8 because it ensures that it will not have "advanced functions required" or must have. In addition, it also mentions what many of us think, that the smartphone market is saturated and many of the available devices are of quality, which offers us the possibility of buying a good device without having to buy a new iPhone for a more price high.
The Barclays analyst has also had time to talk about the wireless charging of the iPhone 8, but he has mentioned it to say that he does not think he is ready for this year yes for 2018-2019. Wireless charging, which would allow us to charge the device at a certain distance, could be an important point of the next iPhone, but it would not be so much if the charge were by induction, that is, if the device had to be necessarily on a surface to Receive the cargo.
In any case, these latest analyzes speak of an iPhone that will be presented at the end of 2017. What we have closer is the report next Tuesday. Will there be a new Apple record or a new opportunity for the "Apple is doomed"?
