Apple's stock falls after Goldman cuts price target, iPhone unit estimates
Shares of Apple Inc. dropped 1.4% in premarket trade Tuesday, after Goldman Sachs slashed its price target by 13% and cut iPhone unit estimates in the wake of a profit and sales warning from supplier Lumentum Holdings Inc. . Analyst Rod Hall lowered his price target to $209 from $240, and reiterated the neutral rating he's had on Apple since Feb. 6. He cut his fiscal 2019 revenue outlook by 3.5% to $269.94 billion, which compares with the FactSet consensus of $280.5 billion; he lowered his earnings estimate to $13.00 from $13.44, while the FactSet consensus is $13.45; and reduced his total iPhone units estimate by 6%, as declines in iPhone XR/XS Max/XS unit estimates offsets increases in lower-priced iPhone units. Apple's stock had tumbled 5.0% to a 3 1/2-month low on Monday, after Lumentum cut is earnings and revenue outlook after it recently received a request from "one of our largest" customers to "materially reduce shipments" of laser diodes for 3D sensing, and Lumentum has disclosed in the past that Apple was its largest customer. Sanderson said he's concerned Lumentum's warning suggests demand for new iPhone modes is deteriorating. "We note this could easily right itself given the bulk of demand comes in late December but we feel more prudent sell through forecasts are warranted due to the timing and magnitude of this warning," Sanderson wrote in a note to clients. Apple's stock has shed 16% since its Oct. 3 record close of $232.07 through Monday, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has lost 5.4% over the same time.
