  1. FANG stocks will continue to outperform Apple in share gains. Apple has too many headwinds to overcome while the FANG stocks are constantly being praised for future potential growth. It’s hard for me to understand why Apple doesn’t seem to have that same growth potential, especially if it can get hold of that overseas cash.

    A few months ago, Apple’s market cap was about $200B above Alphabet’s market cap and then quickly lost about $50B for reasons I can’t exactly pinpoint. Apple stock is always said to be ripe for correction while the FANG stocks sail along without the need for corrections. It’s hard for me to say what Apple needs to do as its dividends and share buybacks should have lessened Apple’s volatility, but apparently aren’t enough. My guess is Apple’s dependency on the iPhone doesn’t provide enough confidence for investors. Apple isn’t doing badly but it just can’t seem to match the FANG stocks in terms of consistent share gains.

  2. “I couldn’t be more excited to tell you that more exciting things are in the pipeline.”

    Translation: we’ll keep milking the App Store while everything but the iPhone languishes.
