RBC Capital Markets的阿米特·德莱纳里表示，苹果的股价还会上升到192至195美元，从而达到1万亿美元的市值，这取决于公司股票回购的比例。德莱纳里计算到，苹果的交易价大约是预计第二年的每股收益的16倍，所以苹果的每股收益需要从2017年预计的9美元左右提高到2019年的12美元。
这种预测建立在苹果消费者和投资者的期待上，他们认为iPhone的下一代产品将具有巨大的吸引力。三年来，苹果手机的外观设计都大体雷同，如今，关于2017年的机型将拥有至少一款彻底革新产品的流言已经甚嚣尘上。这款新机型被大众称作iPhone 8、iPhone X或iPhone Pro，据说会采用亮度更高的OLED无边框屏幕。人们普遍认为这款尚未发布的iPhone将会带来强劲的销量，也会帮助公司的股价在现在的基础上继续提高。上周，苹果发布了最近季度的财报，但华尔街几乎已经忽略了苹果过去的销售额，关注点反而变成了通过财报的预期收益来推测下一代iPhone的推出时间。（财富中文网）
Apple stock has more or less been on a tear in 2017, rising 38% and giving the company a current stock market value of over $820 billion. But even with the stock hitting an all-time high of almost $162 this week, at least one analyst on Wall Street sees a way for another big rally that would make Apple the first $1 trillion-dollar company.
Amit Daryanani at RBC Capital Markets says Apple's share price would have to rise from its current level to about $192 to $195, depending on the rate of the company's stock buybacks, to reach the $1 trillion value. With Apple trading at 16 times its estimated next year's per share profits, profits would need to increase from an estimated $9 or so in 2017 to $12 in 2019, Daryanani calculates.
"Apple has potential to achieve a $1 trillion dollar market cap and even surpass that over the next 12 to 18 months," writes Daryanani. "We see upside occurring from multiple levers."
Those "levers" to get to $12 per share in profit are revenue increasing from new iPhone models, including a higher-priced premium model, growing services revenue helping to expand profit margins, tighter cost control and strong stock buybacks, he says.
The prediction comes as anticipation is building among Apple customers and investors that the next round of iPhone updates could be particularly enticing. After Apple mostly stuck with the same external design for three years in a row, the rumor mill is full of leaks that the 2017 lineup will include at least one radically resigned model. Dubbed by outsiders the iPhone 8, iPhone X, or iPhone Pro, the new phone is predicted to have a brighter OLED screen stretching from edge to edge.Expectations for strong sales of the yet-to-be-announced iPhones have helped push the stock price to its current level. When Apple reported results last week for its most recent quarter, Wall Street almost ignored the past sales, focusing instead on what the company's forecast was hinting about the timing of the next iPhone.
