Analysts are adamant about the second quarter.

This week, several analysts have published their earnings predictions. Not unlike the Apple Maven, Canaccord's Michael Walkley also the iPhone 13 and the Mac as the two main engines that fueled Apple's performance in fiscal Q2.

According to the analyst, Apple is a buy because to favorable events, including (1) the 5G upgrade cycle and (2) a revenue mix shift toward the higher-margin services segment. Canaccord has a price target of $200 on the AAPL, suggesting an increase of 26%.

William Power of Baird is a bit weak, but his view of AAPL comes with strings attached. Apple stock should be purchased "more aggressively due to weakness," according to the analyst, which means that he is not ruling out a bearish reaction to the earnings print.

Mr. Power still believes that Apple's stock should be valued at $190 per share. However, he is concerned about (1) valuations that are approaching a high against the S&P 500 and (2) declining demand in parts of the world, including China and Europe.

Toni Sacconaghi, an Apple critic who has a market performance rating on AAPL stock, was unlucky. He Apple will deliver a solid fiscal Q2 and possibly an all-around beat.

Given the wide range of macro-level challenges, he appears to think that the forecast for the remainder of 2022 may be as optimistic as it should be. If Apple does not drop the mic this week, the analyst believes that the narrative for the remainder of the year might sour.

Wamsi Mohan, a bank of America trading target of $215 on Apple stock, has a 36% upside potential. This quarter's confidence in AAPL shares transcends the P&L.

The analyst claims that the Cupertino company will announce a buyback authorization of at least $70 billion and a dividend increase of 5%. The last time that Apple did both, when it added $90 billion to the repurchase program, and increased dividends by 7%.
