Apple’s Strong iPhone Demand, Qualcomm Vice Chair to Depart, and 3 More Hot Stocks

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL): Apple’s iPhones made up about 51 percent of Verizon’s (NYSE:VZ) smartphone demand in the past quarter, according to the telco’s recent earnings report. That’s up from roughly 43 percent last quarter and 46 percent last year. Although this shows that Apple’s iPhone demand is healthy and strong (despite speculated production and inventory constraints), Walter Piecyk said, “remember activations are not sales.”
