Apple’s (AAPL) Refreshed iPhone Lineup Stalls Android Sales

 

Brisk sales of Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone 5 and older model iPhones have taken the wind out of rival handsets running Google's (GOOG) Android operating system, Investor’s Business Daily reported.

In September, several smartphone vendors aggressively discounted their high-end flagship Android devices to mid- and low-tier pricing, but results were disappointing. One Android product continues to sell well, Samsung’s Galaxy S3 smartphone, but inventories are rising faster than sales.

As for Apple, the company is supply constrained for its new iPhone 5. But lower prices for its legacy iPhone products could prove to be a significant driver of sales.

One factor helping Apple sales is the brand’s strength among young people. Surveys indicate that 40% of teens own an iPhone, up from 34% in the spring and 23% a year ago. Plus, 62% of teens plan to make an iPhone their next smartphone, compared with just 22% looking to buy an Android phone.

AAPL is a Cabot Benjamin Graham Value Letter stock.
