Can Apple continue its hot streak?

 

Tuesday, August 2, 2022

With the bulls back in control, July was the S&P 500’s best month since November 2020. And with Amazon and Apple outperforming analysts’ quarterly estimates on Jul. 28, optimism spread quickly across Wall Street.

 

Apple CEO Tim Cook told analysts during the third-quarter earnings call that “we’re going to accelerate revenues in the September quarter as compared to the June quarter,” he added “we’re encouraged by the strong response from customers to our incredible lineup. iPad, like Mac, continued to see strong demand during the June quarter despite ongoing supply constraints.”

While many U.S. companies struggle with teetering consumer demand and abnormally high inflation, Apple showcased immense resiliency. But will it be enough for the stock to surpass its May highs?

Apple gapped up on Jul. 29 and closed above its 200-day moving average, which is a solid gauge of long-term uptrends. Apple also closed above its September 2021 highs and its rising support line (which became resistance) drawn from the September 2020 lows. As a result, the technicals are in sync with Apple’s robust fundamentals.

However, the next hurdle is near Apple’s November 2021 and May 2022 highs of roughly $166.38. So even though the 200-day MA provides meaningful support at $158.94, the big tech titan ended the Jul. 29 session at $162.51, and the next ~$4 move is crucial.

So, is a breakout on the horizon? Or is long/short trading in the $158.94 to $166.38 range the best approach?

Investing in CFDs involves a high degree of risk that you will lose your money due to the use of leverage, particularly in fast moving markets, where a relatively small movement in the price can lead to a proportionately larger movement in the value of your investment. This can result in loses that exceed the funds in your account. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and you should seek independent advice if necessary.
