Stocks to Watch – Apple (AAPL)
Apple – Following news that the firm is abandoning plans to increase new iPhone production, Apple shares dropped 3.4% on Wednesday. According to Bloomberg, instead of planning to raise production by 6 million units in the second half of the year, it will aim for 90 million units, which is the same as last year. The company said this was based on a variety of factors including global economic conditions. Investors may be concerned about future growth following this announcement.

Biogen — Following positive findings from a trial involving an experimental Alzheimer’s medicine and a series of analyst upgrades, the biotech company’s shares climbed 37%. The medicine, according to Biogen and its Japanese partner Eisai, delayed the disease’s course and lowered cognitive deterioration by 27%.

Broadridge– Spruce Point Capital Management published a report with a strong sell recommendation, noting that there may be a 75% chance of a decline. Meanwhile, Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts have maintained their buy rating, citing biopharmaceutical potential and supportive pipeline developments. As such, analysts have been increasing their 12 month price target range to $280-$300 per share. If the company can continue on its current path without any major setbacks they should be able to remain profitable and sustainable in the long run.
