There's No Evidence iPhone Orders Have Been Cut: JPMorgan

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPhone build plans seem to have remained stable since early March. JPMogran’s Rod Hall maintained an Overweight rating for the company, with a price target of $141, saying that there was no evidence of order cuts, and iPhone SE was the main focus of FQ216.

There seems to be no evidence that iPhone orders for the June quarter have been reduced, and the quarter’s iPhone build plans appear to have remained stable at around 43-45m units since March, analyst Rod Hall said. He added, “We note that, if correct, these build orders continue to indicate flat shipments Q/Q in FQ3’16.”

Earthquake Disruption

The earthquake that hit South Japan on April 20 impacted a key Sony camera module facility. Hall commented that existing parts inventory may be enough to ensure continued production, although “we flag some risk for a hiccup later this summer.”
