Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has made changes recently to the iPhone operating system, with the iOS 7. Others have speculated about an iPhone 5S release, smartphones with bigger screens, and a more affordable iPhone that could be marketed to developing nations. However, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has not outright confirmed these rumors. That leaves investors questioning what Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) might be up to, and whether there is potential for the stock’s price to soar again.
Fear not, earnest investor, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s stock has only paused before the next upward swing. And with a share price that has fallen 35% since its high of $705 last September, there is a lot of room for growth. Though enthusiasm for the firm’s latest releases has been weak, even if one of the rumors proves true, this stock could jump significantly in probably a one-day spike, and then gradually climb thereafter.
After all, this is the same company that has essentially changed the way much of the world communicates. Just like how the New York Yankees can’t win every World Series Championship, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) can’t change the world with every new gadget it releases. But be patient, because this is a company at the top of its league.
New release is needed to trigger higher share price
Apple’s financials indicate the firm could be stagnant or drop if it doesn’t release a popular product. The firm hasn’t grown sales in the past year and is actually losing market share. Also, the company is experiencing a decline in profit margin, which fell slightly to 23.46% last year. However, the industry also experienced a slight decline. With a PE ratio of 10.1, investors have an average growth expectation for the firm. If the PE ratio reaches 10.6, investors believe the company has a brighter future, RBC Direct Investing stated.
