Disruptive Tech Research analyst, Lou Basenese, during an interview on CNBC reiterated that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Skyworks Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ:SWKS) And Southwest Airlines Co (NYSE:LUV) are poised to be some of the biggest hits in 2015.
“There is always a large cap to play the best growth trends and there is no bigger trend than mobile and that’s make Skyworks Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ:SWKS) a company that I think everyone has to own in 2015. They are a leading a RF chip supplier; they are well positioned in the iPhone,” said Mr. Basenese.
Skyworks impressive run in 2014 is set to continue in 2015 as the demand for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPhones remains strong at the back of 4G LTE network gaining traction in China. Basenese also believes Skyworks Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ:SWKS) could receive a major uplift in the year at the back of a disruptive technology that it is partnering with a company called Resident. The partnership with Resident is expected to allow the giant chip maker to produce RF filters that are a 55% discount to the current market.
With Wall Street remaining skeptical on the ability of iWatch to uplift Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) stock in 2015, Basenese maintains Apple Pay remains the product to watch as it is expected to gain the much-needed popularity.
“I think everyone is discounting Apple Pay though it is up to a great start, iPhone 6 sales are up to a great start. The company has got to execute but again I think it is primed for further increases in profitability and the stock price can move a little bit higher,” said Mr. Basenese
Basenese also discounted the ongoing concern that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iWatch is poised to be a flop reiterating that many wearables flop because of a terrible battery life something that is unlikely to happen with iWatch.
Southwest Airlines Co (NYSE:LUV) is one of the airlines that has benefited a great deal from the ongoing drop in oil prices.
