Analyst: Apple’s Still the Top Pick

macbookDemand for Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) stock has continued to stay high despite the arrival of the company’s bears, according to R.W. Baird senior analyst Will Power.

Power, though, continues to have an Outperform rating on the stock and a $750 price target. He calls the iPhone maker his top pick.

Power said he researched the company’s potential vis-à-vis its supply-chain performance, and Apple came out looking perfectly stable for the near- and long-term future.

“The stock’s been beaten up as we all know over the last couple of months, but all of our checks suggest that demand remains very good,” he said. “Even the supply-chain side that our semiconductor team has come up with suggests that procurement numbers remain good, so we like the outlook here over the near and long term.”
