  • Rakers expects a focus on any commentary supportive of a belief that the supply chain is improving, continued confidence in strong end-user demand across the portfolio, as well as services/subscriptions momentum.

  • He thinks the investment case for Apple has more to do with the company's monetization of the installed base through an expanded portfolio of products and services like AR/VR and auto rather than the near-term setup.

  • Price Action: AAPL shares traded lower by 0.69% at $163.42 in the premarket session on the last check Friday.
