Apple stock could jump 10 percent in 6 months – Barron’s 

NEW YORK, Mar 20: The stock of technology giant Apple Inc could increase another 10 percent in six months because of growth in its service divisions and buzz around a new iPhone model, Barron’s wrote in an article posted Saturday.

The business and investing publication cited offerings such as AppleCare, iTunes and iCloud in noting that the “company’s high-margin services revenue probably will continue to race quietly higher.”

“As high-margin services grow, Apple could earn a higher valuation. And shares could hit US$155 on iPhone,” Barron’s wrote.

The stock trades around US$140 now, up more than 20 percent in 2017.
