Expectations For Apple To Grow More

76% of traders and investors told us shares of Apple will grow more by 2022.

Traders and investors who participated in our study said shares of Apple will increase off heightened demand for consumer electronics goods post-pandemic. Many respondents to our study also cited the recent news Apple will be making a splash in the EV sector as a reason for the stock’s potential growth next year.

We reported shares of Apple surged 2.85% during the Dec. 22 regular trading session after a Reuters report said the Cupertino-based company planned to launch electric vehicles in 2024.

If Apple were to partner with an established EV-maker for collaboration in vehicle production, several respondents stated Nio (NYSE:NIO) or Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) as possible scenarios.

This survey was conducted by Benzinga in December 2020 and included the responses of a diverse population of adults 18 or older.

Opting into the survey was completely voluntary, with no incentives offered to potential respondents. The study reflects results from over 500 adults.
