Eric J. Savitz for Barron’s:

The Wall Street consensus view is that Apple (ticker: AAPL) will post revenue of $72.9 billion, up 22% from a year earlier, with profits of $1 a share. When it reported its March quarter results, Apple didn’t issue specific financial forecasts for the June quarter, but said it expects “strong double digit” revenue growth on a year-over-year basis. Management also predicted a bigger quarter-over-quarter decline than in prior years, due to the later launch last year of the iPhone 12 and continuing component shortages…

In a research note Tuesday, UBS analyst David Vogt lifted his outlook for the quarter, citing strong demand for both iPhones and Macs. His forecast for the quarter went to $74.7 billion in revenue and profits of $1.01 a share, from $71.3 billion and 95 cents a share. Vogt repeated his Buy rating, and raised his target for the stock price to $160, from $155.

Monness Crespi Hardt analyst Brian White repeated a Buy rating and $180 stock-price target, saying that the Street consensus for the quarter is far too conservative. He expects revenue of $80.33 billion, which would be up 35% year over year, with profits of $1.16 a share.
