Analyst sees iPhone 8 turning Apple into the first trillion dollar company

The most valuable company in the world right now is Apple. Thanks to the success of the Apple iPhone, the company is currently valued at almost $752 billion. According to an analyst at Drexel Hamilton by the name of Brian White, Apple will be the first company in history to be valued at one trillion dollars, The impetus behind this powerful move higher will be the introduction of the 10th anniversary iPhone model currently dubbed the Apple iPhone 8, according to White.

As hard as it is to believe, White notes that Apple is one of the most undervalued companies trading in the U.S. markets. As an example, White points to Apple's 16:9 ratio. No folks, that is not the 16:9 aspect ratio of the iPhone's screen. That is the company's Price-Earnings ratio which means that for every $1 per share in net earnings, Apple's stock price is worth $16.90. Similar companies are more expensive. Firms like Google (31), Amazon (183), and Microsoft (30) are trading at rates nearly twice as expensive as Apple's PE ratio.

White says that Apple made a bottom last May and he predicts it will reach $202 over the next 12 months. With 5.4 billion shares outstanding, Apple needs to hit $185 in order to reach the magical $1 trillion mark. And with a new premium priced iPhone on the way along with the Apple Home Pod launching in December, there is a very good chance that investors will respond favorably enough to these devices that before the end of this year, the company will have a valuation that starts with a "T" for trillion.

Current Apple stock according NASDAQ is 144.15. To reach 185 that means more than 28% growth. Apple is already overpriced. Such increase is not reasonable.

We already know Apple is looking for more ways to take in more money. Even that latest stories in regards to wireless charging won't be on the iPhone 8, but there will be a case that will add that feature. Another example is no micro SD slot on their MacBook pros. Buy a dongle for this and that. Apple is all about taking advantage of the cash cow (their customers).

HillaryClinton2020 aka Vincent Liu aka Snakeboy has that profile picture only for one reason. Look at the picture closely, you see gloves and a needle, it's a message. This guy did some plastic surgery to be a girl, I am not kidding!

Actually that's a lie. They have rewrote history and implimented themselves in culture. The iPhone will never be forgotten.

That is false and had been proven so many g8mes. The ev9lutiom2of tje dmartphome shoqed the display was getr8ng bigger. Apple aimply jumped out first. After all Sony designed the ohome to bwgim with, so its obvious somwome had the idea before Apple and consider tge LG Prada. Yoir claim is false and is B#. You need ro read the facts.

if apple will finally deliver device for that price they are asking it might hapend, considering there are so much sheeps. +proper 2k screen +less bazels +fast charging +wireless charging then i might consider to get one, but sammy offering these features for a while for same price so its no brainer not to waste money on iphone. excuse my English.
