Reuters made the stock price trend according to Apple and Amazon’s stock price trend in the past year. If both of them can maintain the previous growth rate, then Amazon may break one trillion US dollars in late August, and Apple may break through 10,000 in September. One hundred million U.S. dollars.
So far, Apple's market value has exceeded US$900 billion several times, but it has repeatedly fallen below US$900 billion. The main reason is related to the change in sales of iPhone X.
In the past 12 months, Apple's share price has risen by 24%, with the latest closing market value of 890.3 billion US dollars.
At the end of last year, Apple iPhone X mobile phone came out at a pre-determined stage and said that consumers need to wait more than a month before they can get a mobile phone. Wall Street thinks this is a hot selling signal for mobile phones, and then Apple's share price has soared. But early this year, various The information shows that the sales volume of iPhone X did not meet expectations (the long waiting period at the end of last year was actually due to the low output of Foxconn), and it was even less likely to achieve the so-called "super upgrade cycle." Then Apple's share price fell again.
Apple’s financial report for the fourth quarter has been announced. In the context of the sale of three mobile phones, Apple’s mobile phone sales have been surprising, and there has been a worse decline.
Amazon’s latest market value is US$752.0 billion, Apple’s market value is currently leading US$140 billion, Amazon is ranked third in the world, but Amazon is rapidly closing the gap.
In the past year, Amazon's share price has risen by 83%, mainly because the company has made a number of diversified expansion decisions. In addition, in the cloud computing market that represents the future development direction, Amazon has taken the initiative.
Previously, Amazon spent US$13.7 billion to acquire the Whole Foods Supermarket in the United States and began to expand into physical stores. In addition, the food of the Whole Foods has also acquired the opportunity to transform to online sales through the acquisition. Currently, Amazon has started to provide total food products in multiple cities. Online shopping and courier services.
In January, Amazon announced that it would cooperate with Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway and JP Morgan Chase to form a joint venture company to provide healthcare services to employees.
This is considered to be the latest expansion of Amazon's medical and health field in the United States, and Amazon may bring subversive effects in this market.
In February, Amazon's market value exceeded Microsoft's and became the third largest company in global market capitalization.
Google’s parent company, Alphabet, has achieved a market value of US$ 783 billion, ranking second in the world. In the past year, Alphabet's share price has risen 33%, faster than Apple but behind Amazon.
Apple's stock price is closely related to the performance of the mobile phone business. Last year, iPhone X was high hopes, but now Wall Street is full of worries about the iPhone X phone.
Nikkei News reported that Apple had reduced its iPhone X production plan from 40 million units to 20 million units in the first quarter and was affected by Apple. Samsung Display’s OLED business was directly hampered. The product supply exceeds demand, and the production line operating rate is only half.
This fall, Apple will release new mobile phones as usual. It is expected that Apple will release three mobile phones, one of which is a slightly lower price for LCD screens. The fringe screen and face recognition that Apple iPhone X launched last year all sparked some consumer controversies. The alleged user experience is poor, and product maturity is not high. Another $1,000 pricing is too high.
Whether Apple will learn the lesson from last year and introduce new mobile phones with better experience is still unknown.
According to Reuters, according to the previous stock price forecast, Google may need to be able to break one trillion US dollars by next year.
It should be pointed out that the past trend of stock prices is only a reference for future stock price changes, rather than a reliable predictor. Judging from a number of criteria, Amazon's share price increase in the past year has been very rare.
However, Amazon’s diversified pace of expansion has not stopped. Recently, Amazon acquired a smart lock company and continued to enhance the smart home business. In addition, Amazon is also expanding its voice assistant Alexa’s coverage in external company hardware. Alexa will become the business growth of the future. A great motivation.
