MoneyLine: Apple Makes a Big Move to Control the Content World

I’ve been wrong before…

About seven or eight years ago, I was on Fox Business and said that Apple (AAPL) would be much higher. I wasn’t wrong about that – Apple is trading near a $1 trillion valuation and close to all-time highs today.

But I said that the catalyst that would push the shares higher was Apple TV. I thought Apple was going to be the leader of the cord cutters.

That wasn’t the case back then. But that prediction might finally come true now.

Earlier this week, Apple held its big event where it introduces its new products to the world. Finally, it announced Apple TV+. It’s basically the company’s version of Netflix. And get this… the service only costs $4.99 per month. With that, Apple has essentially undercut all of its competition.

I think this is going to be huge.

What will ultimately differentiate Apple TV+ from the likes of Netflix (NFLX), Disney (DIS), Hulu, and Amazon (AMZN) is content. Apple currently has nine “blockbusters” lined up. That’s right… NINE.

The point is, Apple only needs one big hit to send its stock soaring.

Apple TV+ plus will launch on November 1. As I mentioned, it’s only $4.99 per month. And if you buy any new Apple device, you get the streaming service free for a year.

The company announced a few other new products during its event.

  • Apple Arcade will launch on September 19. The service gives users access to about 100 games. I’m not a gamer, but that seems like it would be interesting.
  • It introduced a new entry-level iPad. Nothing really changed there.
  • And Apple came out with the latest versions of its iPhone: the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Plus. The biggest different here will be a new camera – although to be honest, I can never tell the difference.

Finally, the company announced the Apple Watch Series 5. The new update isn’t really that exciting. However, in the future I see big things for this wearable device.

It’s all about the next generation of healthcare. I really believe that the future will be all about that watch – or some iteration of it – which will be able to track our EKG, the potassium in our blood, and anything related to any chronic illnesses we have (whether it be diabetes or hypertension).

In fact, I believe Apple will be one of the biggest – if not THE biggest – players in the future of healthcare.

When you combine that potential with the new Apple TV+, I think we see Apple go from a $1 trillion company today to a $3 trillion company a few years from now.

That’s an excerpt from my latest MoneyLine podcast, which I posted to the site earlier today.

If you’re a regular MoneyWire reader, you know I see a lot of potential in the future of healthcare. I talked about another stock leading the way in that mega-trend earlier this week.

But it’s not the only life-changing trend I talk about in the podcast. 5G – a technology that Forbes says “is going to change EVERYTHING” – is a massive theme we cannot afford to miss out on right now. (I completely agree and will tell you why in tomorrow’s MoneyWire article.) And I was a bit disappointed that Apple didn’t come out with a 5G-compatible phone. Oh well… we know it will eventually.

5G is going to create more than $53 trillion of economic wealth. When there is that much money sloshing around, every company is going to get a piece of that. And investors who position themselves in the right companies stand to make a whole lot of money over time. I’ll tell you all about that.

That’s also why I talk with Paul Dellaquila, the president of Defiance ETFs and the gentleman who built the Defiance Next Gen Connectivity ETF (FIVG). It’s the first exchange-traded fund centered around 5G. I definitely recommend checking out the interview, as you’ll want to hear Dellaquila’s take on 5G’s future.

After watching today’s podcast, I hope you’ll listen to some of my other recent MoneyLine podcasts you may have missed.

  • Last week, I discussed the notorious month of September. Over the last 30 years, September has traditionally been the worst month for stocks. I explain why you should ignore that and instead look ahead to a year-end rally and beyond. (Notice how the S&P 500 is less than 1% from its all-time high?) I also talk about the huge opportunity in sports gambling, as well as one company at the forefront of the telemedicine trend.
  • And on August 30, I told you about the massive opportunities in several trends related to China. I also touched on the volatile August market and why investors should be salivating at the opportunities being created, as well as one mega-trend that I believe is going to change the future of batteries.
