Money Morning Capital Wave Strategist Shah Gilani joined FOX Business' "Varney & Co." yesterday (Wednesday) to discuss Apple Inc.'s (Nasdaq: AAPL) initial post-earnings drop.

Shah explained that the investor sentiment of disappointment was "ridiculous" and called the post-earnings AAPL price dip an opportunity for smart investors to jump in.

How Apple Stock Made Us as Much as 175% (While Wall Street Barely Made 3%)

Apple stock

There's no doubt that Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) is a fantastic long-term hold. Its growth prospects are excellent, and it will hit $200 a share on its way to being the world's first trillion-dollar company.

That will be great for shareholders when it happens, but it's going to take more than a year to hit those milestones.

But I'm going to show you an easy-to-make trade that made my Money Calendar Alert Members as much as 175% in the 11 days it took shareholders to book just 2.46%.

Here's exactly how we did it...

Wall Street Is Ignoring Apple Music – We Shouldn't

AAPL earnings

With Apple so often on the cutting edge of technology, it is easy to treat its latest breakthroughs as the status quo for such an innovator.

That typically leaves real unclaimed value on the table when it has a new product or service in the market.

But the newest big story out of Cupertino is hardly the status quo - even for a firm like Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL).

It will also be the perfect boost to Apple's stock price as the market gyrates daily around it. Let me show you why and how you can profit....

How Much Money Does Apple Have? (AAPL)

How much money does Apple have?

In one sense, answering the question "How much money does Apple have?" is easy.

During its Q2 earnings conference call Monday, Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) reported that it now has $193.5 billion in cash and cash equivalents on its balance sheet.

That's a big number. But what could you do with it?

Here are a few crazy ideas...

best stocks to buy now

The Apple suppliers list can help investors see which partners are in favor or out of favor with the Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant.

The first Apple suppliers list was published in 2012, partly in response to controversies over working conditions in plants overseas that build Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) products.

But investors are typically less concerned with Apple's corporate responsibility efforts than they are with finding alternative ways to play the phenomenal success of Apple stock.

This list includes 200 companies...

An Easy Way to Make a Quick 300% on Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL)

apple

It seems there is always a great deal of attention being paid to Apple.

Today I'm going to show you how Apple can give us a 50% gain - and that will pale in comparison to my backdoor play, which could net around 300%.

I believe that putting Apple in the Dow Jones Industrial Average will help to stabilize its correlation to the market's benchmarks even more.

You see, Apple is acting more and more like a bellwether stock, raising its dividend on an annual basis all the while buying back shares. Apple's equity often moves its own way, regardless of global or regional circumstances. 

For example, in the last 200 trading days, AAPL shares moved with the S&P 500 just 12% of the time. Apple almost looks like a defensive play when you think about it that way, and that's exactly what hedge fund managers see. 

But along with the move to the Dow comes perhaps the biggest factor in Apple's expected rise: its product introductions...

Dow's Embrace of Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) Reveals New Paths to Profits

Apple stock price

The announcement last week that Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) would replace AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) in the venerable Dow Jones Industrial Average's 30 top companies reflects an important trend that you can play to your advantage. Today, I'll tell you how.

Previously, the biggest shake-up of the Dow came in September 2013 when Goldman Sachs, Nike, and Visa knocked out Alcoa, Bank of America, and Hewlett-Packard.

If you see a pattern, you are correct. The Dow is moving in the direction of tracking the new, consumer- and intellectual property-driven economy. Replacing AT&T with Apple is a logical step in that direction.

It's all a part of a critical trend I see coming that will change the way we think about investing.

For those who want to look to the future (Apple) and slough off the past (AT&T), this is a key time to act. Here's how.

The arrival of the Apple Watch poses one huge question - will it make Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) the first $1 trillion company?

Sales of the Apple Watch could make or break AAPL's growth targets.

Apple Watch Could Be the iPad of 2015

apple watch

Monday's presentation by Apple boss Tim Cook revealed that the Apple Watch is a less useful, less compelling, and less user friendly version of the iPhone. But people also sniggered at the iPad back in 2010, when it wasn't clear why users would want a device that was less useful than a laptop and had less connectivity than a mobile phone.

Avid fans flocked to the iPad nonetheless, and they'll probably drive demand for the watch - meaning Apple's unusual dual stature as the biggest cap company on the planet and a doyenne of hipsters will remain intact.

When Will Apple Be Worth a Trillion Dollars?

SG-Varney-20150225
