Apple Stock Price for Today (07/17/2024)

On the date the Apple stock forecast is bearish. There are two factors contributing to this. The first is the Fed's high interest rates, which are depressing the stock market. Many investors prefer fixed income investments.

The second factor is the company's own problems. It notes a decline in sales.

Apple (AAPL) Technical Analysis

The forecast for Apple for the May-June period is promising a rise in the price. On most timeframes, technical analysis indicators are giving an active buy signal. 

For example, on the hourly and daily charts the RSI indicator is slightly above 60. This indicates that the asset is not overbought. Prices retain the potential for growth.

The price of AAPL share is above the moving averages at the time of writing. This is a sign of positive sentiment in the market. 

Chart patterns give a bearish signal. Harami bearish is present on the 1W timeframe. However, its reliability is minimal. Therefore, Apple is expected to rise.

The forecast is based on data current as of May 07. It is presented solely for informational purposes and does not constitute investment advice.

 

Strong buy

Fundamental analysis

At the beginning of May 2024, Apple had high profitability and good margins. At the same time, it has a high debt-to-equity ratio. This is a sign of dependence on external sources of finance. In times of high interest rates, this is an unfavorable factor.

Other key indicators are summarized in the table below.

Where will be Apple in 5 years

According to analysts at The Motley Fool, Apple's revenue will grow just 1% in 2024. And the company's profit growth is expected to be 7%. 

Experts note that Apple reported an unsuccessful launch of sales of Vision Pro. In addition, sales of iPad, Apple Watch and AirPods have declined. Services remain the company's strength. Revenues from this business are showing strong growth.

The price forecast for the next year and 5 years is positive. Experts believe that Apple's stock will go up relative to the present price. There are a number of factors contributing to this:

  1. Strong business. Equities are perceived as a safe haven from the crisis.

  2. A unique customer relationship model.

  3. Potential to grow the company's revenue through new areas such as augmented reality.

But there are a number of negative factors. They will affect the share price in the next 5 years. First of all, it is the high current value of the company. In 2023 the share price grew by 46%. The stock is currently close to historical highs.

In addition, experts believe that Apple is no longer a growth company. There are fears that the company will reduce the rate of revenue growth in the future. Today, AAPL stock is recommended to buy. However, the number of analysts who give such an assessment is smaller than the competitors. 

Quotes are influenced by the situation in the technology industry and the stock market as a whole. In many respects, positive Apple stock forecasts are based on the experts' belief in the high potential of the sector.

Apple Stock Price Prediction 2024

In 2024 the negative factor for quotations will be the attention of the regulator. Also, sales cuts may lead to price declines. Nevertheless, experts give mostly optimistic predictions. For example, the target price of the stock for the end of 2024 will be priced at:

  • $207 — according to the calculations of Coin Price Forecast service specialists;

  • $216 — by Michael Graw (Techopedia platform);

  • $225 — as predicted by Bank of America experts.

The average analyst price target, according to Nasdaq, is $205.09. The maximum is $250.

The reason for the stock's bullish forecast for 2024 is investors' belief in the issuer's stability. The company is seen as a good investment to wait out the crisis. When the Fed cuts rates, a risky but fast-growing business becomes more interesting.

Apple Stock Price Prediction 2026

AAPL's forecast for 2026 promises a growth of quotations relative to the present price. But it is unlikely that the price will stay above $300 for a long time. 

The price of the stock is predicted to be:

  • $269 — from the experts at Coin Price Forecast;

  • $298 — according to the experts at Techopedia;

  • до $762 — according to Gov Capital's calculation methodology.

Based on our view, Apple stock could be a bad investment in 2026, as there is a risk that prices will come under pressure. This is possible due to the strengthening of competitors. Another possible reason is the increased risk appetite of investors.

AAPL Prediction 2027

Experts give conflicting price forecasts for stocks for 2027. The minimum level is offered by the service Wallet Investor. Their target price is $269. The analysts of Gov Capital are the most optimistic. In their opinion, the value will reach $1125.

According to our prediction, in 2027 prices will again test the level of $ 300. It is likely that they will be able to consolidate near this value.

Long-Term Apple Stock Forecast 2030 to 2050

The long-term forecast for Apple is confident. All experts believe that the company will maintain its market share. Predictions for such a period are made using mathematical models. The underlying assumptions determine the outcome.

In reality, the following factors will determine the value of the stock:

  • the pace of development of the global economy;

  • the situation in the technology sector;

  • the company's success in competing and maintaining market share;

  • business development and development of new, relevant future directions.

Potential negative factors for Apple's long-term performance are increased competition and antitrust laws.

 

Apple Projections For the Next 10 Years

Apple's stock price forecast for the next 10 years is optimistic. Experts believe the company will be able to maintain its leadership position. The analysts give the following price targets for 2034:

  • $512 — Coin Price Forecast platform;

  • $928 — Stock Scan service.

This forecast represents growth of 183% to 412% over 10 years. Apple stock looks like an asset with good returns even in a pessimistic scenario. 

BeatMarket experts believe that in 10 years the price of AAPL could exceed $500. However, we believe that the growth rate of prices in the next 10 years will be lower than in the previous period. This is explained by the slowdown in the expansion of the product market.

 

Apple stock price prediction 2030

Forecasts for 2030 classify Apple stock as a moderately profitable investment. Below are AAPL price forecasts from various services:

  • $299 — taking into account current projections for the company's financial results;

  • $381 — based on the assumption that dynamics of quotations will correspond to the historical yield of S&P 500 index;

  • $784 — assuming the company continues to grow at the same average rate as it has over the past 10 years;

  • $873 — assuming the company appreciates at the same average rate as it has over its history.

The most optimistic forecast is given by the Finanzerr service. Its experts believe that in 2030 prices will reach $ 1345. The analysts of BeatMarket stick to a moderate scenario. We do not expect a price above $ 400.

 

Apple stock forecast 2040

Among the price forecasts for 2040, the following target levels can be seen:

  • to $1221 — Stock Scan platform;

  • to $8217 - Coincodex service;

  • in the $7570-$8650 range - Finanzerr service.

The maximum figures are based on the assumption that the company will maintain its historical growth rates. However, BeatMarket experts believe that this is unlikely. 

The pessimistic forecast takes into account the current problems in the technology sector. It is also influenced by possible corrections in the stock market as a whole.

Apple Future price 2050

AAPL stock price predictions 2050 are even more variable. No expert can say in advance whether Apple will remain the market leader. 

Services that build mathematical models give the following targets:

  • $1588 — Stock Scan;

  • $10000 — Finanzerr;

  • to $77322 — Coincodex.

The most optimistic long-term price forecast gives an annualized growth rate of 25.1%. This is the company's historical return to date. 

BeatMarket experts expect Apple's stock price to grow faster than the S&P 500. This corresponds to an ROI of more than 11.1%. Thus, we expect a price above $3140 per share.
