  • PC, MP3 players and cell phones--those are very personal products, meaning they are theoretically 1-2 per consumer. The total market size are highly correlated with the totally population ,income, and product upgrade/replacement cycle.

    2. 2. Investment HighlightsInvestment Highlights • Foreseeable Growth: potential high growth until 2016 with current product lines. Although the total size of the company is huge, in the three major segments it operates, it either has a small market share in the biggest and growing markets ( smart phones ), small market share in a big market (PC), or high market share in a growing market (tablets). The growth potential in all three segments are still high. • Innovation: There might be next big thing like iTV. The next big thing is not priced in our valuation model, it would be a bonus if it materialize. • As of March 28, 2013 around 5:00 p.m. the market stock price is around $455, and we believe its fair value is around $700. • Considering its potential growth in next 5 years, continuous growth from innovation in the long term, and rich free cash it has accumulated and continue to generate, it is still very cheap with a 10- PE. • AAPL has been a very volatile stock for the last five years and will continue to be. The combination of its risk and return offers great opportunity for patient investors who buy growth at value price. • Recommendation: BUY • Disclaimer: This is an example of stock analysis for educational purposes.

    4. 4. Industry AnalysisIndustry Analysis • Consumer Electronics Industry is very competitive • Products can be looked at as a luxury and not a necessity. • Demand is driven by the “desire” of the product not the “need” • Demand for Apple products is expected to continue to grow rapidly • Not one company in the Technology industry competes with Apple in all business segments. • We took the market capitalization of all the industries of Apple’s competitors and compared Apple’s Market Cap. It seems that Apple clearly dominates. • Will have to get permission because it will exceed the limit of 2.5% of initial position.

    20. 20. Apple’s Competitors
    21. 21. TheThe RiskRisk • Competition: AAPL is not Microsoft at any fronts it competes. o Enemies: • Enemy number 1: Google. Competes with AAPL on mobile OS, Tablets, internet TV, and possibly music. • Enemy number 2: Microsoft • Smart phone family: HTC, Samsung, Sony, RIMM, Motorola, Nokia. o Price and margin pressure • Leadership o Tim is a great operator, coordinator, manager, but not a “product person”, not a “marketing genius”, not a visionary o Power struggle within and Apple might lose talent o Lack of ultimate authority to do the “right” but unpopular thing • Disruptive technology: Web-based app and html5 • Double Recession: slower growth of high end products • Regulation: not a big concern as Software or interest, but a growing concern
    22. 22. • Quality issue, product failure o iPhone5 Map gate o Antenna gate for iPhone4. • Labor issues: Apple face negative publicity for the unfriendly working conditions and low pay of its supply chains. Labor cost will rise sharply and might lower gross margin. • Relations with carrier and subsidies. Once carriers decide to cut subsidy significantly, Apple might lose volume, ASP and margin same time, cause a decline of profit • Tax: Tax of cash parked in foreign subsidiary when they are repatriated to US ultimately. Apple might not only need to pay US tax on these cash, but its effective tax rate on future earnings would eventually rise to 30% + level, lowering its earning power significantly. • Too big: AAPL has a market cap higher than Soft, and the only direction from top is going down. • Valuation: Current valuation is still high, compared with Soft and Intc. • Android: Competition like Android is catching up • Margin: Margin might collapse because of competition • Growth: Growth will slow down. Rule of big numbers. • Lawsuit: patent lawsuit banned it from delivering smart phones. • Brand : The brand might be diluted when Apple lower prices and go TheThe RiskRisk Continues…Continues…
