Analysts' Thoughts

One of the biggest concerns regarding Apple at the current time is slowing iPhone sales. Analysts fear that since the death of founder Steve Jobs, the company has lost its innovative touch, and the lack of any new blockbuster product will prevent strong future growth to balance out a maturing smartphone market. The company will hold an even on March 21, and is expected to unveil a smaller iPhone, an updated iPad and Apple Watch accessories, and a new iOS operating system. If analysts are impressed with the new products and upgrades, the stock will be able to build on its recent momentum.
