Apple Stock Just Formed a Death Cross – Now What? (Nasdaq: AAPL)

Apple death cross

Apple stock formed a bearish "death cross" pattern in its chart yesterday (Wednesday), giving Wall Street one more thing to worry about.

Technical analysts see a death cross as a signal that a short-term drop is about to become a long-term slump. And in the case of AAPL stock, the death cross is especially worrying.

This is what happened the last two times we saw an Apple death cross...

Does the Tim Cook Email to Jim Cramer Warrant SEC Investigation? (Nasdaq: AAPL)


Does the Tim Cook email to "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer warrant an all-out SEC investigation? Well, the correspondence wasn't the most legal of conversations, that's for sure.

You see, Cook's decision to fill Cramer in privately on Apple's performance violated an SEC regulation.

Here's the likely outcome of an SEC investigation into Tim Cook's email...

Apple Stock Gloom Vanishes as Wall Street Flip Flops Again (Nasdaq: AAPL)


After a month of negative talk from Wall Street analysts that helped drive Apple stock down 20%, the mood has suddenly reversed.

One email from Apple CEO Tim Cook was all it took to reverse weeks of gloomy sentiment from Wall Street.

Here's why Wall Street got it wrong on AAPL stock - and why investors need to take everything these analysts say with a grain of salt...

Apple Stock Price Fall Pushes Market Cap Loss Past $170 Billion

AAPL 4 month fall

The Apple stock price, caught up in the general stock market crash, added to its four-month decline today (Monday) with a drop that pushed its valuation loss to more than $170 billion.

The AAPL stock price spent much of the morning hovering around $104 a share, more than $30 below its 52-week high.

Meanwhile, Apple's fall has also had a pretty dramatic impact on the Dow Jones Industrial Average...

dow jones

Futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average today (Friday, Aug. 21) forecasted an 80-point decline. The S&P is currently at a five-month low.

Here's a look at the stock market news that's moving the DJIA today even lower...

How Apple Stock Will Help Us Beat China's Downturn

Apple Stock

It's been about a month since Apple Inc. shares started their recent slip. They're now down about 12% in that time, and a few talking heads are still trying to scare investors into selling...

As usual, they're wrong.

The stock market has pulled back overall, and Apple isn't immune from those downturns.

Really, no stock is.

Let me explain, and then I'll show you just how to play Apple in this situation...

Apple Car Rumors Suggest AAPL Is Really Doing This


Speculation about a potential Apple car again ran wild over the weekend, sparked by a report in The Guardian that the iPhone-maker had found a place where it could secretly test it.

It's tempting to think a self-driving, all-electric Apple car is in the pipeline. And without a doubt, Apple has the financial resources to pull it off. But strategically, it doesn't make sense.

Here's what AAPL is really working on...

How We'll Profit as Volatility Shakes Out the "Weak Money"

stock market volatility

After seven down days in a row, the markets roared back Monday and appeared to erase last week's sharp declines.

Now, Monday's action looked impressive by any measure... but the "green" chart I'm about to show you told me that we were looking at something other than the start of a sustainable rally.

And just as I thought, the markets headed lower again yesterday.

I'm not worried, though - and you shouldn't be either. Volatility like we're seeing now means we're looking at much bigger potential gains...

Why the Apple Stock Price Drop Is Misleading (AAPL)

Apple stock

Don't let the recent Apple stock price drop scare you.

While concerns about iPhone sales are always valid - Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) does draw the majority of its profits and revenue from its iconic smartphone - the bite out of AAPL stock we've seen after the company's Q3 earnings is overblown.

In the long run, the Apple stock price will bounce back.

Here's why the Apple stock price drop is merely a temporary setback...

Cold, Hard Metrics on Tesla (Nasdaq: TSLA) and Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL)

Money Morning

Money Morning Technical Trading Specialist D.R. Barton, Jr. joined Bloomberg Radio last week, offering a critical perspective on Tesla Motors Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) and Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL).

Barton explained how technical indicators can work in concert with the strong investor sentiment that comes with the huge followings these companies have. But these indicators can also show when price movements are out of line with this kind of emotional buying and selling.

And that's where the opportunity lies...

What the Media Doesn't Get About Stock Market Bubbles

stock market bubble

Since the last bona fide financial bubble, the real estate and credit bubble of 2007 to 2009, it seems like every time anyone pays a few pennies too much for a stock, there is a flock of analysts ready to start crowing "bubble!" like so many birds on a wire.

I believe that any pundit who calls a sector or market a "bubble" when they really mean "fundamentally or technically overbought" should be banished from pontificating until the real bubble appears.

And the charts I have to show you prove it...
