GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on Apple Inc

David Einhorn Comments on Apple - May 17, 2017

AAPL (NASDAQ:AAPL) advanced from $115.82 to $143.66 as it reported a good quarter and the market is now realizing it is not the next Nokia or BlackBerry. AAPL’s market position is durable and its ecosystem is expanding with high-margin recurring services revenue streams. We continue to like AAPL because we think it is a superior company that still trades for less than a market multiple.

David Rolfe Comments on Apple - Apr 14, 2017

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) was a top relative and absolute contributor to performance during the quarter. The Company's iPhone franchise continues to dominate profitability share within the smartphone OEM market, after the next most profitable competitor (Samsung) incurred sizable losses from a product recall. Apple continues its long history of maintaining a focused hardware portfolio (relative to competitors), while aggressively innovating its in-house software and services capabilities which enables the narrow hardware portfolio to "act" much wider. For example, Apple's revenue from software and services grew almost 20%, to over $24 billion during fiscal 2016. We think Apple's software and services revenue stream has a very attractive profitability profile that should help offset the financial ebbs and flows inherent in the Company's well-established hardware product cycles. Apple exited the most recent quarter with a fortress-like balance sheet, a byproduct of their prodigious free cash flow generation of about $50 billion or more in each of the last three fiscal years. Rumors of the iPhone’s demise have once again been greatly exaggerated. With the pent -up demand for the upcoming iPhone 8, free cash flow may challenge the previous fiscal high of nearly $70 billion generated in fiscal 2015. While the stock has performed superbly over the past few quarters, we have pared back positions purely to limit our absolute weighting. That said, we continue to maintain a healthy overweight relative to the benchmark as we think the market continues to under-appreciate Apple's competitive positioning and long-term opportunities for profitable growth.

David Rolfe Comments on Apple Inc. - Jan 16, 2017

We should note successful examples of the use of outsized debt by our own invested companies. Consider Apple. Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) generates enough cash ($65 billion in operating cash TTM) that even after spending $10 billion in R&D in fiscal 2016, the Company’s balance sheet liquidity grew almost $10 billion, to over $250 billion. This trove is trapped overseas awaiting a change in U.S. repatriation laws - a potentially significant bullish event for shareholders. In the meantime, in order to return this cash back to shareholders, the Company has issued over $75 billion in debt.

Further, and often left unremarked by Wall Street’s finest, is the rapid, and accelerating growth in Apple’s R&D spending over the past few years. Clearly the Company does not need to spend $10-$15 billion per year to sustain the evolutionary upgrades to the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and/or new video streaming services. Apple’s nascent automotive program Project Titan may not be at all about creating a complete autonomous driving car (Apple Car), but rather the creation of software that makes existing cars smarter – or even autonomous. Now that is a huge, creatively disruptive opportunity.

From David Rolfe (Trades, Portfolio)'s fourth quarter 2016 Wedgewood Partners investor letter.

David Rolfe Comments on Apple - Oct 21, 2016

During the quarter, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) was a top contributor to relative performance. Apple has been in portfolios for nearly a decade. Even though Apple is one of the most visible and widely followed businesses in our investment universe, we believe it has long suffered from the incorrect market perception that its customer relationships are largely transactional in nature. We see evidence of these "hit-driven" fears embedded in the systematic contraction of Apple's forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple. Apple's P/E multiple peaked in the fall of 2007 at about 38X (not long after the iPhone launched and the S&P 500 P/E peaked for that cycle) and has contracted to around 12.7X, albeit up from the 9X and 10x multiples seen earlier this year and in 2013. We earnestly admit that Apple probably does not deserve to trade at the 38X forward earnings2, yet we believe that Apple’s iOS franchise and “annuity-like” ecosystem has demonstrated an exceptional ability to retain and obtain repeat customers, while commanding over 90% of the profitability generated by smartphone manufacturers—qualities we think should help the stock generate extremely attractive returns at the current multiple.

Spiros Segalas Comments on Apple - Aug 18, 2016

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), whose shares fell on a lull in major product cycles, was a major detractor from relative returns, along with Nike and Alexion Pharmaceuticals. Amazon.com, the Fund’s largest holding as of June 30, 2016, was the top contributor to relative returns.

David Rolfe Comments on Apple - Jul 13, 2016

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been a significant underperformer not only during the recent second quarter (-11.8%), but also for nearly a year now. The stock has fallen about - 28% on an absolute basis, from its high set back on July 20, 2015. This is the second time that the stock has been put through the wringer since late 2012 on fears of “peak” iPhone growth and the concomitant lack of innovation out of the skunk works in Cupertino. Given the surge of sales of the iPhone 6 in 2015 (pent up demand for a larger iPhone, plus significant demand from China), we are not surprised by the weaker year-over-year earnings comparisons.

The Apple stock advance-and-decline narrative has been pretty straightforward over the past half-dozen years. Given the consented narrative that Apple is “The iPhone Company” – and nothing but the iPhone – when forward analyst estimates of iPhone sales increase, the stock typically advances. When estimates are being cut, well, the stock typically declines, also. Mr. Market really is that binary on Apple’s stock price movements. We would argue, too, that Mr. Market is quite obtuse when it comes to the totality of Apple. Everything else that a rational investor would consider in accessing Apple as an investment is literally put in a vacuum when it comes to the stock. Valuation seems to matter not a wit. By any traditional valuation measure, both absolute and relative to other technology hardware companies, Apple’s stock, in our view, has long been cheap – but it gets cheaper still on estimate cuts. In fact, we would argue that Apple’s stock is currently valued (6.5X FCF ex-cash)2 as if to assume that the Company’s business prospects are little better than a coal mine in 10-year run-off mode.

Here are a few elements of the superiority – and we would argue, rarity – of the Company’s business model via their platform trifecta of hardware, software and services that should matter to investors: iPhone user base estimated at +450 million. Smartphone industry gross profit take of approximately 95%. An installed ecosystem base of over +1 billion sticky users. 13 million active App Store developers. 130 billion downloaded Apps. Relatedly, software services gross revenue business is at an annuity-like run-rate of $40 billion – with profit margins greater than Company average. Company operating margins of 30%. Connected software platforms that include iOS, MacOS and Watch OS. The Company’s near fanatic commitment to user privacy. Apple Watch unit sales of 11-13 million since launch. Over the past four calendar years the Company has generated nearly $216 billion in free cash flow, including $55 billion over the past four quarters. $250 billion in balance sheet liquidity. Tens of billions of stock buybacks, in our view, below intrinsic value.

It could be argued that Apple’s only significant competitor is itself. Sure, Android vendors such as Samsung, Huawei, Oppo, and Xiaomi, are competitors in that each does sell high-end smartphones, particularly to first-time smartphone buyers.

However, it's also the case that once one experiences the differentiated nature of a true high-end smartphone, many of those Android customers do find their way to Apple for a significantly better user ecosystem. At this juncture, the consensus on Apple is that the iPhone 7 will be a boring upgrade and thus a flop. Again, the current valuation of the stock implies that Apple is once again a permanently impaired growth company. Given that Apple is our second largest position, we certainly don’t share such dire views.

Weitz Funds Comments on Apple - Apr 25, 2016

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), creator of the iPhone, iPad and Mac, makes a return to the Research Fund (previously eliminated in the third quarter of 2014). Investors, in our view, have become too pessimistic about Apple’s ability to grow sales of the iPhone and to globally monetize its large installed base of iOS devices. In addition to its growth prospects, Apple continues to return significant amounts of cash to shareowners.

David Rolfe Comments on Apple - Oct 15, 2015

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) reported blockbuster year-over-year earnings growth of over 40%, driven by a healthy iPhone business which reported unit share take in every country. However, shares sold off as the market began its virtually seasonal questioning of Apple's long-term growth abilities. We continue to think Apple is capable of mid-to-high single digit revenue growth over the next several years, mostly attributed to the Company's massive (we estimate well over 500 million), upgradable installed unit base.

Combined with increasing cost benefits due to their increasing scale, along with outsized cash balances and reduced share count, we believe Apple is capable of generating a double-digit rate of earnings per share growth over the next several years. We think Apple's highly repeatable upgrade base is a byproduct of their constant innovation across not just products, but also services and distribution, where Apple's efforts have been particularly disruptive given their scale.

For example, during the quarter Apple announced a new iPhone purchase program allowing users to upgrade their iPhones every twelve months. The program will be run by Apple, and financed by a third party financial institution. Importantly, telecommunications providers have little to no presence in this new buying process. Now, nearly from the day telco iPhone subsidies were introduced, we have seen the market fret over telco providers' supposed negotiating leverage over Apple. Yet over the past few quarters, most of the major U.S. telecom providers announced the phasing out of such subsidy programs. Not for a lack of demand or efficacy, we view this phasing -out had more to do with customers demanding the "latest and greatest" devices, particularly from Apple, along with telcos' inability to service this demand financially, as a wave of price competition has pressured subscription plan revenues. We think Apple's novel new distribution program meaningfully reduces the Company's reliance on telecom providers and shortens the "upgrade cycle" which should bode well for future iPhone sales. Not least, we think Apple has further proven that the future cash flows of its iPhone franchise are more recurring than they are one-off transactions. As Apple continues to reinforce its competitive positioning, we estimate the Company now controls around 90% of worldwide smartphone profits - a very rare occurrence in any industry, much less the highly competitive consumer electronics segment. Given the share price pullback, we estimate Apple is trading at a single-digit price to earnings multiple (adjusted for balance sheet cash) which is substantially lower than the market and peers despite Apple's superior competitive positioning and long tail of double-digit growth, so we added to positions.
