Apple have outperformed the S&P 500 over the past year (+34.4% vs. +26%). The Zacks analyst believes that Apple has been benefiting from the continued momentum in the Services segment and robust performances from iPhone, iPad, Mac.
Apple’s Services and Wearables businesses are expected to drive top-line growth in fiscal 2022 and beyond. AAPL’s Services portfolio has emerged as its new cash cow. Apple expects revenues for each product category to grow year-over-year, except for iPad, which is expected to decline on the back of supply shortages. Supply chain constraints due to paucity of silicon and COVID-related manufacturing disruptions remain a headwind.

The Zacks analyst is optimistic about dominant market position, innovative prowess, product range, growth initiatives and dividend payouts. Order growth in new markets is another major positive.
Healthy uptake of identity and access, advanced threat and unified threat management security solutions amid high growth in Internet traffic is likely to drive Cisco’s growth in the quarters ahead. The buyout of Acacia Communications also bodes well. Integration risks as well as stiff competition from smaller players remain headwinds, though.

Linde have gained +7.3% in the last six months against the Zacks Oil and Gas - Field Services industry’s loss of -3.5%. The Zacks analyst believes that Linde is gaining on the back of recovering industrial gas demand at a time when industrial production is improving worldwide.
With a wide range of applications for its industrial gases, Linde is making the world more productive by the day. Linde’s process gas, hydrogen, is being utilized for clean fuels, while its high-purity and specialty gases are employed to manufacture electronics. Since the third quarter last year, however, there has been a steady decline in LIN’s contractual sale of gas product backlog.
