Summary

  • Today, I want to warn all investors once again that it is still too early to buy AAPL no matter how much you believe in the company.
  • The risks continue to increase, especially given the recent developments at the Zhengzhou factory.
  • What if Apple's liquidity, which has been halved in recent quarters, at some point no longer flows into share buybacks, but into redirecting production from China to India?
  • What if Apple's gross margin had peaked, as it did in 1990 and 2012?
  • Why should we pay so much today for such modest operational growth tomorrow? Apple stock is still a "Hold" for me.
  • I do much more than just articles at Beyond the Wall Investing: Members get access to model portfolios, regular updates, a chat room, and more. Learn More »

BS in Finance. In my bachelor's thesis, I looked at finding the best statistical/machine learning methods to predict underpricing of Initial Public Offerings (IPOs). A brief summary of my findings: using the KNN method, you could add about 24% of alpha compared to the average return of each initial public offer. In other words, with the AI algorithm I developed, it was possible to distinguish good IPOs from bad IPOs, where the average underpricing of selected companies in the test sample was 64.5%, while the overall average underpricing would be only 41.39%.
