The chatter on tech blogs has heated up on reports of a
significantly larger screen size for the upcoming
iPhone 6 launch
. The smart phone is slated to be released this fall and
industry insiders say the screen size will grow by 20% or
This has led Wall Street analysts to project that
Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL
will enjoy an earnings growth of 10-15% in addition to a marked
increase in share price in 2014.
As you can see in the
below, past release announcements have impacted share price
dramatically. The original iPhone, as well as the 4S (the
model that first introduced Siri) both immediately propelled
Other iPhone offerings (3G, 3GS, 4) that only incrementally
upgraded existing hardware have done nothing to increase Apple's
share price. But the larger screen size (rumored to
be anywhere from 4.7 inches to 5.5 inches) for the iPhone 6 is a
very big deal.
The current iPhone's 4 inch screen is dwarfed by smart phone
competitors including Samsung and HTC. Over the past
few years many past Apple acolytes have jettisoned their iPhones
for the larger screens of its Android competition.
Apple is now primed to steal these users back. And
current iPhone users, now for the first time in years, have a
tantalizing reason to upgrade to the new model.
iPhones are expected to bring in 54% of total sales for Apple
The iPhone already has a massive base of 260 million users and
this screen size upgrade is seen by technology insiders as
helping Apple to sell over 200 million new iPhones this year
Since the death of Apple founder Steve Jobs,
technological expansion at Apple has slowed
. Many insiders have hypothesized that lack of
exciting new products and a less innovative corporate culture has
caused this stagnation.
But the exciting new iPhone 6, along with rumors of an iWatch,
and revamped Apple TV suggest a renaissance for Apple.
Although recent releases like the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s have
comparatively failed to entice users to upgrade from their
current iPhone models, the new iPhone 6 stands to be the most
successful entry ever.
Expectations of a subsidized price of $299 for the iPhone6,
$100 more than the price for the iPhone 5s, fuel speculation that
sales could add more than $3 a share in earnings upside during
Apple's final two quarters in 2014. Apple is expected to use this
revenue growth to increase its dividend for shareholders.
The new iPhone 6 is expected to debut this fall and could
shoot Apple shares up 20%. If you believe as I do that this
new release is a sign of growth to come for Apple, than consider
buying stock today.
