Top 5 Reasons To Buy The Apple Stock Right Now (2019 Update)

Apple is one of the most innovative and technology companies in the US. In the article lets look at what makes the Apple stock so great and is it one of the best investments you can make today? Why is the Apple stock great always? Let’s get started.

If anyone of you living in this part of the world or anywhere else across the globe aren’t aware of the company Apple, I can only pity you. Apple’s one of strongest brands out there with premium prices for smartphones, I mean gadgets.

Not to forget Apple has one of the most loyal fans across the tech space when compared to other product manufacturing companies in the likes of Samsung, Google, LG..

What really set’s the Apple stock great ? Why are people crazy about Apple products? What is Apple’s revenue all about? Is it just the iPhone sales? No it’s not. Read on to know more.

People Genuinely Love & Respect Apple Products 

Being an Apple user, in-fact I have an iPhone, iPad, MacBook, AirPods, Apple Watch (yeah almost everything out there except HomePod :P) and am very much part of the Apple’s ecosystem with 200 GB cloud storage and Apple Music.

Now, what makes all of this great. Samsung has their cloud network, Google has too. 

Then what really makes Apple fans loyal and stick to the ecosystem?

Yeah, that’s right. They all do have their own eco systems(walls) but nothing works seamless like Apple does across devices.

For example, I don’t need to pick my call on the cellphone while working on Mac, it really works. I usually answer the phone call through my Mac during morning hours. 

Also photo stream, I don’t have to search for my Kids photos on my cellphone. I have set the photo stream option and can see all the photos on my Mac or iPad for instance.

I can bet neither Google or Samsung has the code which can do this all and as good as what Apple does.

Now Forget these, have you tried the Apple car play feature, its just excellent.

Sorry to deviate you away from the topic. I just wanted to make a point that, Apple is very hard to beat in the tech space and the brand loyalty is very high because of the above said reasons.

People love Apple products and its a fact. They are ready to pay the premium for its products because they know it works even after 4-5 years.

Apple’s major OS software update includes iPhones from the past 4-5 years.

Fun fact – my iPad mini 4 which I bought in 2015 got the latest iPad OS update and runs as smooth as butter. I can’t ever imagine this from Samsung or forget Google doing this. 

Do you really think that the only tech stock that Warren Buffet owns is Apple? He’s every one’s stock market guru and investments right? Can he be wrong. I don’t think so.

Apple Stock In 2019

Alright, alright now. Enough of praising Apple. I won’t get an iPhone 11 Pro from doing this ๐Ÿ˜€

Nor will Tim Cook call my cell and wish me on my birthday ๐Ÿ˜› 

Let’s quickly look at the Apple stock’s market chart below for the past 15 years.

Can Apple Stock Really Continue Giving These Kinds Of Returns In The Years Going Forward?

I strongly believe yes Apple can, no no I am not nuts here to just bank my buck here. I strongly believe so for the below reasons:

  1. Analysts and the so and so of the tech space and reporters are usually wrong about Apple with sorts of reports. You may usually read on the daily news reports such as slow iPhone sales, iPhone X is $1000, iPhone 11 Pro Max is a $1500+ dollars. But, have Apple customers shyed away from buying ones? Not really. The numbers are usually very good. 

  2. Alright, now then, iPhone XR – which is Apples budget phone from 2018 was the #1 selling premium smartphone in terms of units sold. Now the iPhone XR was priced less, so did Apple go nuts to make it? You feel so. Never! Tim Cook’s always right. They make LCD screens in 2018 and it sells like a hot cake. Why? Are people crazy. No man! Apple’s LCD is amazing tech. Not the cheap garbage ones you get from others out there. Also iPhone XR’s battery is the best in the industry.

  3. Now then, Apple sold a ton of iPhone XR’s, they sold a lot more AirPods, percentage of those users got iCloud, iMusic, made purchases from the App Store. Don’t also forget the App Store revenue. It’s all revenue for Apple isn’t it.

  4. Now then, as Bill Gates said in one of his interview’s – Apple and its OS cannot be replaced in the market, its always #1, there was space for a second competitor and Android took it. That’s Microsoft’s loss here. 

  5. Still is Android as good as iOS – I don’t think so. Android’s got better over time, yes but not as good and optimized as iOS.

Future of Apple and the Impact on the stock

The iPhone 11 sales are really good. The redefined cameras and A13 Bionic are all great. Its selling really well.

Also Apple has launched the Arcade gaming, promoting TV+ aggressively with the likes of Morning Show and Jen Anniston.

Don’t forget the new 13” MacBook Pro and the iWatch Series 5, and the latest iPad’s.

I strongly believe that Apple may not be the best innovative tech company out there, but it doesn’t mean they are second too!

Do I like the 11 Pro Cameras at the back? Hell no, never! It’s so bad, common on.

But, look here’s the thing. Did we like the Airpod’s design at first. People mocked at it. Common on now. Don’t lie to me.

Remember the watch? People mocked at it too for the design and in fact called it a flop. Has it been so.No!

Now that’s Apple for you ๐Ÿ™‚

In a nutshell, I strongly feel Apple is here to stay and will stay strong both in terms of revenue generating and profit machine. 

Apple Dividend

Apple Stock’s Dividend History 

Apple is one of the highest dividend paying blue chip stocks. We all know that. In 2019 alone, Apple Stock has issued $2.27 in dividends to shareholders. Apart from the growth trajectory of the stock, dividends are a nice way to boost your income. 

Also Apple makes billions of dollars in revenue every year. So dividend payments should only increase going forward as it’s been in the past. 

Below I am providing the data of their dividend history since 2017

Apple Vs Other Blue Chip Stocks Comparison

Alright then, we spoke a lot about Apple and how good the stocks prospects are.

Lets just compare Apples to Oranges shall we. ๐Ÿ™‚

Again, the only stock in NASDAQ right now in 2019, with the likes of Apple’s market cap in Microsoft.

Amazon, Google, Facebook stocks are all below the Trillion dollar market cap valuation.

Now then, Microsoft stocks doing great especially if you see the 2019 stock returns since Jan or even from the start of 2018.

I genuinely love the Microsoft stock and with the all innovations they do, its really great to invest your hard earned money in.

I think Apple and Microsoft are both amazing tech companies to invest your money in.

Conclusion

Well then, Apple stock is one of the few gems in the US stock market.

As an American or a Canadian we need to be really be proud of these high-tech product companies with so much of innovation going on.

Also Apple gives it back to the environment is great with so much of recyclables being used it in its products.

From an investment point of view, Apple Stock’s been great and has created so many millionaires and even billionaires over the past decade. As Mr Mobile would say, Just stay Invested for as long you can my friends, and the company nor its products will disappoint you. Also the annual dividends are only going to rise. 

Apple’s revenues keep growing and will do so with services outpacing the iPhone sales numbers.
