Baker Hughes: Unique Technology Drivers, Significant Upside (NYSE:BKR)

Introduction

It’s been a while since we took a look at Baker Hughes (BKR). Too long actually, but time may help to provide perspective on our core interest, are they investible at this point in time?

Baker, a leading producer of energy related good and services, reported a dismal Q2 and guided down any investors expectations for the immediate future. As the share price indicates, any recovery in OFS remains a story for a few quarters down the road. Farther than the eye can see actually. A story that’s been largely true for several years now.

There were a few bright spots and instead of a recap of lousy revenue and profit numbers, and the expectation of more of the same, we will focus on the bright spots in this article.

Analysts Predict Apple’s iPhone 12 to Outperform Global Smartphone Market in 2020 with Significant Upgrade Cycle in Q4

 

Apple is set to announce its new line-up of iPhones later today. This will mark a significant moment in the rollout of 5G and will be an opportunity for Apple to have a large upgrade cycle.

 

Counterpoint’s Research Director Tom Kang: “Apple has done a great job outperforming the global smartphone market. During the COVID-19 low point in Q2 2020, Apple was helped by the timely launch of the iPhone SE, which created a new, low price point for iPhones at $399. It helped Apple get through the worst months of COVID-19 and its lockdown periods.

 

In addition, the iPhone 11 has proved to have great longevity, still selling over one million devices per week on the brink of a refresh.

 

The SE and iPhone 11 helped maintain momentum through Q3 as the general market remained negative.”

In most years, Apple announces its iPhones in September, and they go on sale shortly after that. This year is different. Apple instead released new Apple Watches last month and pushed the iPhone announcement to October. The delay is an outgrowth of the Covid-19 pandemic, which disrupted electronics manufacturing and forced most Apple employees to work from home.

Still, this year’s iPhone launch is significant. It is expected to include the first major exterior redesign since 2017, when Apple released the iPhone X with facial recognition. This year’s models will feature iPad-like edges with flatter sides, compared with the gently curving sides of the current iPhones. 

Apple is also expected to release four separate iPhones at different screen sizes and prices — a much wider range of

Following tough year, the global 5G smartphone market predicted to see significant growth

The global 5G smartphone market saw a ‘steep reduction’ in demand during the first two quarters of 2020

A new study concludes that the global 5G smartphone market size is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 122.7% from 2020 to 2027. While the market of next-gen smartphones reached 12.42 million units in 2019, the first two quarters of 2020 saw a “steep reduction” in demand, according to the study from Polaris Market Research.

However, the global 5G smartphone market is expected to rebound starting in the Q3 and Q4 of 2020 and should maintain its momentum during the forecast period. This return to growth is considered to be the result of the market’s increasing ability to provide high-speed internet connectivity and coverage as well as the ability of 5G phones to provide improved reliability in comparison to 4G-based smartphones.

Further, new 5G product launches, particularly in

Star Wars: Squadrons is seeing significant VR play

EA released an infographic on Twitter that shows 15% of Star Wars: Squadrons players are experiencing the game in VR. That’s actually quite a lot, considering it’s available on PS4, PC, and Xbox One and is fully playable with or without VR.

After playing and reviewing Star Wars: Squadrons (I loved it by the way). Playing in VR with a HOTAS control stick is the best and most immersive way to enjoy this game. The implied stat here, if you read between the numbers, is that 85% of players haven’t gotten the full experience.

It’s also worth noting that when they ran the numbers to get this data, the total player count includes Xbox One users who don’t even have a VR option on their console. That means, of the total potential VR userbase, more than 15% have played in VR. For a game that’s only a week old, it’s

The increased temperature and acidification of our oceans over the next century have been argued to cause significant physical changes in an economically important marine species.

Scientists from the University of Plymouth exposed blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) to current and future levels of ocean acidification (OA) or warming (W), as well as both together – commonly known as OAW.

Initial comparison of mussel shells showed that warming alone led to increased shell growth, but increasing warming and acidification led to decreased shell growth indicating that OA was dissolving their shells.

However, analysis using cutting edge electron microscopy of the shell crystal matrix or ‘ultrastructure’ revealed that, in fact, warming alone has the potential to significantly alter the physical properties of the mussels’ shells, whereas acidification mitigated some of the

Apple’s ‘iPhone 12’ debut will be ‘most significant iPhone event in years,’ says Morgan Stanley

Ahead of Apple’s “iPhone 12” event on Oct. 13, Morgan Stanley is raising its iPhone estimates on new average selling price (ASP) analysis and iPhone build data.

In a research note to investors seen by AppleInsider, lead analyst Katy Huberty writes that the bank’s iPhone mix and pricing analysis indicates that Wall Street’s unit build and ASP estimates “remain too low” for 2021.

The upcoming “iPhone 12” and “iPhone 12 Pro” launch will be the “most significant iPhone event in years,” Huberty writes. She also points out that it comes at a key time for the company as device replacement cycles have lengthened to more than four years. Other factors could include increasing adoption of device trade-ins and gains in markets like Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.

Morgan Stanley’s Asia hardware technology team forecasts a total of 82 million iPhone builds in the December quarter, which suggests about
