Warren Buffett Says Berkshire's Apple Investment Shows The 'Power Of Repurchases'

AAPL

Berkshire Hathaway Inc (NYSE: BRK-A) (NYSE: BRK-B) CEO Warren Buffett over the weekend wrote his annual letter to shareholders and highlighted the “power of repurchases” using Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) as an example. What Happened: Buffett said that Berkshire began buying shares of the iPhone maker in late 2016 and by early June 2018 owned more than one billion shares (adjusted for splits). “Saying that, I’m referencing the investment held in Berkshire’s general account and am excluding a very small and separately-managed holding of Apple shares that was subsequently sold. When we finished our purchases in mid-2018, Berkshire’s general account owned 5.2% of Apple,” wrote the veteran investor. The cost for acquiring that stake was $36 billion and since then Berkshire has enjoyed regular dividends averaging about $775 million annually and has pocketed an extra $11 billion in 2020 by selling a small part of its holdings. The company repurchased .3 billion worth of stock in the period. Since Berkshire also repurchased its own shares during the past two and a half years, its shareholders now own a full 10% more of Apple’s assets and future earnings than they did in July 2018, wrote Buffett.

Best tablets 2021 – from Android to Apple, these tablets are the best in the UK

AAPL

Microsoft has waded in with some very decent products, namely the Surface Go series, as has Amazon with its range of great budget-priced Fire tablets. However, the current leaders of the tablet pack are unquestionably Apple and its chief adversary Samsung, whose wide range of Galaxy tablets have given the mighty Apple a very good innings indeed. The reason for this is that products that use the same operating system are much more easily synced together and you will notice this most when it comes to the transferal of photos. For instance, when you snap a picture on your iPhone, it will eventually make its way to all your other Apple products, whether it’s an iPad, MacBook or an iMac desktop computer. Most public places have wi-fi but if you’re ever caught short and don’t wish to use your much smaller phone to, say, surf the web or reply to an email, you can easily tether the tablet to your phone as a ‘hotspot’ and use the phone’s 4G or 5G signal. Available in four casement colours (sky blue, green, rose gold and space grey), this tablet takes user friendliness to the highest echelon, partly because it can also be used in conjunction with the Apple Pencil and, better still, Apple’s new, utterly amazing – but rather pricy – Magic Keyboard (£299). When used with the keyboard – which incidentally also serves as a protective wallet – the iPad is transformed into a laptop of sorts, with mouse tracking via the keyboard’s built-in Touch Pad.

Mobile ad companies form alliance to prepare for Apple privacy changes

AAPL

Mobile ad companies form alliance to prepare for Apple privacy changes. (Reuters) - Six mobile advertising companies said Wednesday they have formed a partnership to help marketers and app developers adjust to upcoming Apple Inc changes that will affect how advertising works on iPhones. Apple will soon begin to prompt iPhone users to allow apps to use their data for personalized advertising, a move that has drawn backlash from tech rival Facebook Inc, which argues the changes will hurt the social media company's ad business. The Post-IDFA Alliance will provide tips and best practices to help advertisers and developers ensure ads are placed in front of relevant consumers and the effectiveness of those ads can still be measured after the Apple changes are rolled out, said Mark Ellis, chief executive of mobile marketing company Liftoff, which is part of the alliance.

Apple expected to report record Q1 earnings after the bell

AAPL

Apple (AAPL) is set to report its Q1 2021 after the closing bell on Wednesday, and analysts are widely expecting to see a record quarter from the company on the back of sales of its iPhone 12 line of smartphones. Earnings per share: $1.42 expected versus $4.99 in Q1 2020. iPhone revenue: $60.33 billion versus $55.96 billion in Q1 2020. “We strongly believe the iPhone 12 supercycle hype has become a reality with this week giving the Street its first glimpse of underlying iPhone 12 demand and key commentary from [Apple CEO Tim Cook] looking ahead into the next few quarters,” Ives wrote in an research note ahead of the earnings report. UBS Global Research analyst David Vogt suggested that Apple might have sold as many as 78.5 million units in the quarter, which would be ahead of the 78 million units the company sold in Q1 2016, the last time a supercycle was in effect.

AAPL

"Steve Jobs' legacy continues to flow through Apple, with innovation built into the brand's DNA. As Apple reclaims the title of the world's most valuable brand from Amazon five years since it last held the top spot, we are witnessing it Think Different once again. From Mac to iPod, to iPhone, to iPad, to Apple Watch, to subscription services, to infinity and beyond."
