Apple is one of the most profitable companies in the world. The giant tech company’s stocks have been growing day by day, more so after it released iPhone, a line of modern smartphones that hold a significant market share in the US, UK, as well as Japan.
The consistent growth has been attracting multitude of investors, who look to take advantage of Apple’s ever-growing stocks to replenish their financial stores. Are you one of those investors? If yes, Ted Bauman suggests that you reconsider your investment scheme.
According to Bauman, Apple’s future is not as bright as it was one decade ago. In fact, the tech giant’s market share has been diminishing due to its weak brand value, a factor that determines buyers’ buying decision.
While NYSE recognized Apple as one of the companies to reach a market capitalization of $1trillion in 2018, its stock value has been declining consistently from October. Bauman claims that Apple’s sales may continue hitting a low point in the coming years.
Besides the declining brand value, Ted Bauman argues that Apple is losing its position to tech giants who sell their products at affordable prices. The investment expert claims that Apple’s iPad Pro and MacBook Air have a higher price tag than that of competitor models with similar features.
The high price is likely to reduce Apple’s sells since the company is not ready to adjust the price. “Traditionally, customers were willing to pay more for an Apple-branded phone. However, that trend continues to change as Apple’s brand value is diminishes,” argues Ted Bauman.
“Apple’s recent announcement that the company will not be disclosing its unit sales prices is a clear sign that it is aware of its ever-declining stock price. On that account, investors should watch Apple’s performance closely,” added Ted Bauman.
Currently, Ted Bauman works at Banyan Hill Publishing as the editor of several investment magazines such as Plan B Club, The Bauman Letter, and Alpha Stock Alert. His publications specialize in international immigration issues, low-risk investment, asset protection, and privacy. He holds post graduate qualifications in History and Economics from the University of Cape Town, South Africa.
