January 24, 2017 is the estimated Q1 2017 Earnings Release for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL). Meanwhile the trailing statistics show that the company continues to generate bountiful cash reserves of $67,155m and a modest P/E of $13.28.
Trending is the Apple Watch and its new charger:
Heading into the holiday gifting season is part of the bullish thesis for a tech and social company that Apple, Inc. dually occupies. The Beats acquisition is still maximizing its synergy with iTunes and the fight for headphone branding. The new exclusive, Apple wireless signal that replaces traditional BlueTooth is an example of creating consumer dependency. Ultimately, something is brewing that may resemble the first launch of the iPod/MP3 players: complete market dominance.
Free Cash Flow (FCF) Yield
The FCF Yield for Apple at the end of fiscal year 2016 is 8.92% in relation to its Market Capitalization. The company created $65,824m in Operating Cash Flow with a minimal Capital Expenditure of ($13,548m). This tends to support speculation of random buyouts. Everyone would like for their small-cap company to be acquired by Apple, Inc., which has the cash to do so.
Free Cash Flow is tabulated by taking the value of the company's operating cash flow and subtracting from it the value of capital expenses. The yield is then formulated by dividing the result by either the market capital or enterprise value.
Revenue margins continue to be promising:
The dividend yield continues to be minimal and nothing to boast of at less than 2.25%.
The Swift FCF Yield objective is not to issue buy, sell or hold ratings, however after a quick review of Apple's stock the result is compelling. At this juncture the stock is a buy.
