Despite breaking expectations in its Q3 earnings call, with all-around positive numbers and a bullish outlook on the next quarter, Bank of America has downgraded Apple to neutral.

As CNBC reports, the bank is saying that “risk-reward is more balanced at this level,” and re-emphasized their calls for risk evaluation from June and added that since the stock has seen sudden gains.

Additional factors they note is a lower impact from Apple’s share buybacks, a potential risk of a higher tax rate in November due to the upcoming election, COVID19, lower services growth, and lower growth margin.
