In his report, Sankar stated:
Hardware sales will be hit and services could be apple's highlight. Services include Apple Music、Apple TV 、iCloud、App Store and others.
Analysts at wedbush securities also lowered Apple's target price from $335 to $247.74, fearing that the 5g iPhone 12 might be delayed.
Nevertheless, analysts believe that Apple will sell a lot of iPhones this fall, which is a very important year for apple, because the 5g super cycle will start in September, and the iPhone will usher in an update boom.
But the new crown virus is a big worry. Because the supply chain is affected by the virus, Apple may not be able to keep up with the capacity if it launches new products in the fall, so Apple 5 G iPhone may be delayed to the holiday season and even pushed to 2021.
If the worst-case scenario predicts that the supplier may not be able to fully produce by june, five G iPhone may not be available until mid-2021.
