Will Apple Or Google Stock Grow More By 2025?

Every week, Benzinga conducts a sentiment survey to find out what traders are most excited about, interested in or thinking about as they manage and build their personal portfolios.

We surveyed a group of over 500 investors on whether shares of Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) or Google (NASDAQ: GOOG)(NASDAQ: GOOGL) stock would grow the most by 2025. 

Apple Vs. Google Stock

The future is now for Apple’s latest smartphone market entry: Benzinga recently reported Apple's unveiling of its family of iPhone 12 models, which are the first to be compatible with 5G mobile networks. 

One respondent believes Apple’s latest operating systems have shown increased sympathy towards users.

“While being user friendly and syncing flawlessly between other Apple devices, for many years iOS remained very locked down and lacked many standard features other devices with Android OS and Windows OS came with standard, such as widgets, ability to customize app icons, set default mail and browser clients," the respondent said.

“Compatibility in general and every new feature over the past year or so beginning with iOS 13 appears to be geared toward playing nice with other technologies and giving users the features they have been asking for,” they concluded.

To get a sense of how Apple’s innovation has translated for investors, see how much investing $1,000 in Apple the day the first iPhone was revealed would be worth today.

Meanwhile, one respondent noted how Google will excel in the coming years given its accessibility and range of use across effectively all mobile and desktop platforms.

"Google’s business model, being that you can use their services on nearly any mobile or desktop device, will allow for greater expansion," the user said. "In the meantime, Apple is dependent on iPhone sales. I believe those will most likely decline in the coming years because we will reach a point where you won’t need to upgrade as often."

Levels of sentiment were remarkably close for our study as readers shared a near-equal weighted confidence for both tech companies.

50.1% of respondents said Google stock will grow the most by 2025. The stock trades at $1,791.95 per share, off the 52-week low of $1,008.87.

Apple received 49.9% of support from readers. Apple trades at $121.88 per share, off the 52-week low of $53.15.
