What Should Investors Expect for Apple (AAPL) This Earnings Season?

There was a time when Apple (AAPL) was a ‘must-own’ stock that dominated market discussion. However, those days are long gone, as Apple is now a stodgy old guard technology company no different than anyone else in the space. 

While this has allowed AAPL to be a big dividend payer, growth levels have certainly declined. Some are even talking about ‘peak iPhone’ with the prospect of lower sales in the near future for Apple’s signature product. 

Thus, the earnings number might not matter too much for AAPL this quarter. The company does a great job of managing expectations, and investors are going to be zeroing in on iPhone sales and expectations for future deliveries as the key driver for AAPL stock. Additionally, look for any news about the Watch or the car (though this one isn’t likely) to help set expectations for the longer term in Apple as well.
