  • "That’s how Apple described pre-orders for its tenth anniversary phone, the iPhone X.

  • "Today, the stock price was up almost 3% in after-hours trading on Nasdaq at $173.09, which represented a 57.45% increase over the $109.93 price on November 3 last year."

Apple - daily ranging bullish with possible correction (based on the article)

Daily share price is located far above Ichimoku cloud in the bullish area of the chart. The price is on bullish ranging within the followiung support/resistance levels:

  • 176.18 resistance level located in thge beginning of the bullish trend to be resumed, and
  • 168.38 support level located in the beginning of the secondary correction to be started.

Descending triangle pattern was formed by the price to be crossed to below for the correction to be started in the near future.


  • "Two years ago, Apple’s penchant for keeping its artificial intelligence research secret was notorious throughout the industry. But since then, Apple has made a big show of ramping up its efforts in AI."
  • "Nowadays, the race among tech giants to lead in artificial intelligence — a term generally used for software that allows computers to learn and improve tasks on their own — is heating up, and Apple clearly wants to be in the running. AI is a technology that underpins self-driving cars and voice assistants like Siri and Amazon’s Alexa, and tech giants like Google, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft are in a fierce competition to recruit the top minds in AI and offer the most advanced applications of the technology. (According to a recent report in The New York Times, salaries for AI experts can range from $500,000 to $120 million annually.) For years, Apple was perceived as lagging in the field, largely because of its tight-lipped approach to research. Now, as the availability of top AI talent has declined due to booming demand for expertise in the field, the company has recently sought to show it can respond to the conventions of the AI community, where publishing frequently is a must."
  • "At the iPhone event this past September, people watching for clues on Apple’s AI progress were treated to a slew of AI-infused features in the new iPhones. At the event, Apple executives and presenters explained the new iPhone X’s features using terminology familiar to the AI-literate: the company's new A11 Bionic chip includes a so-called "Neural Engine" designed for artificial intelligence processing tasks like mathematically modeling the human face for the iPhone X's new FaceID authentication feature. Crucially, the chip uses machine learning to evolve recognition of face over time, and even if you grow a beard or wear glasses."

Apple - bullish ranging within narro s/r levels; 167.82 support and 180.09 resistance are the keys (based on the article)

Weekly price is on ranging within the narrow support/resistance levels:

  • 167.82 support level located in the beginning of the secondary correction to be started, and
  • 180.09 resistance level located in the primary bullish trend to be resumed.

By the way, the bearish reversal level is 148.40 so if the price breaks this level to below - the long-term bearish reversal will be started.


  • "The S&P 500 dropped 0.67% on Monday, in the largest decline since last September.  Part of the decline was the 2.1% drop in the stock of Apple, Inc. (AAPL), which was a drag on all of the major averages, as well as the technology sector.  The largest holding in the Technology Select Sector (XLK) is Apple, with a portfolio weight of 13.74%."
  • "The stock market declined even more sharply on Tuesday with the Dow Industrials and S&P 500 dropping more than 1%. Apple was down another 0.52% to close at $167.05."
  • "Investors are now even more focused on the earnings for Apple, which are scheduled to be released after the close on February 1st. Many other tech giants, including Microsoft Inc. (MSFT) and Facebook (FB), are also reporting this week, but Apple has garnered most of the interest."

Google Is Getting Ahead Of Apple (based on the article)

Alphabet

Apple

  • "Alphabet, Google’s parent company, is getting ahead of Apple on Wall Street lately. Alphabet’s shares have gained 27.54% over the last twelve months and 171.64% over the last five years, compared to 18.54% and 137.93% of Apple over the corresponding periods."
  • "To be fair, Apple is ranked slightly above Google in the Drucker’s Institute list, but that has to do with Apple’s financial strength -- which may not last if the company fails to keep up with innovation."
  • "Alphabet’s innovation lead over Apple can be further attributed to the company’s ability to better engage employees. Alphabet’s Employee Engagement and Development Score is 82 vs 61.8 for Apple. Alphabet’s ability to engage employees is also reflected in a number of best employer lists, where the company receives top scores, ahead of Apple. Alphabet ranks number 1 on Forbes’s World’s Best Employers list, number 1 on Fortune’s Best Companies to Work For, and number 5 on Glassdoor’s Top Places To Work For."

My comment: if we look at the weekly chart so we can see the following:

  • Google (Alphabet) stock weekly price is on the secondary correction to be started, and the weekly bearish reversal levels (942/908) are very far from the market price, that means that the bearish reversal is very unlikely for the seeveral coming months.
  • Apple weekly stock price is testing support level at 150 which is the bearish weekly reversal level so if the price breaks this level to below on close weekly price so the bearish reversal will be started.

FAANG Stocks (based on the article)

Google stock price

Apple stock price

STOCKPerformance 2014-2018
Netflix408.40%
Amazon262.34%
Facebook243.28%
FAANG Equally Weighted227.05%
Google110.64%
Apple110.59%

  • "FAANG is an acronym, which stands for the first letters of the five companies Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Alphabet’s Google. These five companies have not only been some of the best-performing large-cap stocks over recent years (although Netflix only qualified as large-cap in 2013, when its capitalization consolidated above the $10 billion threshold), they have defined a zeitgeist, led a roaring bull market, and changed the way many of us live, at least in the world’s more economically developed countries."
  • "All five of the FAANG companies have been members of the benchmark S&P 500 Index for some time, but one of them (Netflix) is not a member of the larger-cap S&P 100 Index, so it is most suitable to use the S&P 500 as a benchmark to measure their performances. The FAANG stocks comprise just under 12% of the index’s total market capitalization."
  • "It is usually not a wise idea to day trade stocks at all unless they are leading stocks in a very strong bull market. This is because stocks are typically extremely volatile and subject to intraday manipulation by market makers. Day trading instruments such as Forex is usually much safer, giving the trader a better chance to make a profit. Don’t forget that stock CFDs usually have relatively high spreads at even quality CFD brokers and holding them overnight will incur fees that will eat into profit enough to prevent it being a feasible method of investing in FAANG companies. If you are going to day trade FAANG stocks, doing it long only when both the broader market indices and the stocks themselves are making new all-time highs is going to give you the best chance of success. Yet a much better approach to making money from the stock market is usually found in investing in a portfolio of several stocks and rebalancing no more than once per month."

Apple and Google dropped in annual ranking survey (based on the article)

Google share price chart

Apple share price chart

  • "Apple Inc and Alphabet Inc’s Google corporate brands dropped in an annual survey while Amazon.com Inc maintained the top spot for the third consecutive year, and electric carmaker Telsa Inc rocketed higher after sending a red Roadster into space."
  • "IPhone maker Apple dropped to 29th from its previous position of No. 5, and Google dropped from 8th to No. 28. Apple had ranked No. 2 as recently as 2016, according to the annual Harris Poll Reputation Quotient poll released yesterday."
  • John Gerzema, CEO of the Harris Poll, said in an interview that the likely reason Apple and Google fell was that they have not introduced as many attention-grabbing products as they did in past years, such as when Google rolled out free offerings like its Google Docs word processor or Google Maps and Apple’s then-CEO Steve Jobs introduced the iPod, iPhone and iPad. "Google and Apple, at this moment, are sort of in valleys,” Gerzema said. “We’re not quite to self-driving cars yet. We’re not yet seeing all the things in artificial intelligence they’re going to do."

Apple was down 7.3% for the week (based on the article)

Daily share price was bounced from 183 resistance to below for the secondary correction within the primary daily bullish trend to be started. For now, the price is breaking Ichimoku cloud to below for the bearish reversal with 162 support level as a nearest target to re-enter.

Apple share price on MT5

  • "This was a brutal week for the stock market. The Dow was down over 1,400 points to close at 23,553, declining 5.7% which puts it in negative territory for the year, down 4.8%. The S&P was down 6% for the week and is now down 3.2% for the year. The NASDAQ had the worst week, down 6.5%, but is still up 1.3% for the year."
  • "Apple was down 7.3% for the week vs. the NASDAQ’s 6.5%. Nomura, Cowen and BlueFin Research published notes cutting their iPhone estimates. They were a bit offset by Morgan Stanley and RBC publishing positive notes on the company’s Services business. The stock is selling for about a 14x PE multiple and still has its cash horde to buy back a ton of stock, so it may have more support than the highly valued tech stocks."
