The Money Morning Apple stock forecast for 2016 projects shares going sideways in the early part of the year, but new highs by the summer or fall.

Apple Stock Is Cheap - and It's Because of China (Nasdaq: AAPL)

Apple stock was up about 3.5% today (Wednesday) following an impressive Q4 earnings report, but AAPL stock should be trading much higher.

The most anticipated earnings report of the season comes today when Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) reports its fiscal Q4 results after the bell.

There are ways to score extra profits every quarter when earnings trigger short-term moves in Apple's share price. Last quarter, for example, my Money Calendar Alert members made as much as 175% on AAPL stock in the 11 days it took shareholders to book just 2.46%.
