StockInvest.us, 4 weeks ago


The Apple stock price fell by -2.11% on the last day (Thursday, 23rd May 2024) from $190.90 to $186.88. During the last trading day the stock fluctuated 2.34% from a day low at $186.63 to a day high of $191.00. The price has risen in 7 of the last 10 days and is up by 1.25% over the past 2 weeks. Volume has increased on the last day by 16 million shares but on falling prices. This may be an early warning and the risk will be increased slightly over the next couple of days. In total, 50 million shares were bought and sold for approximately $9.43 billion.

On May 20, 2024, it was reported that Evercore ISI gave AAPL a "Outperform" grade with a "hold" action.

The stock lies in the middle of a wide and weak rising trend in the short term and a further rise within the trend is signaled.Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 6.41% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $180.36 and $205.08 at the end of this 3-month period.


The Apple stock holds a sell signal from the short-term Moving Average; at the same time, however, there is a buy signal from the long-term average. Since the short-term average is above the long-term average there is a general buy signal in the stock giving a positive forecast for the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the short-term Moving Average at approximately $190.09. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately $177.10. A break-up through the short-term average will send a buy signal, whereas a breakdown through the long-term average will send a sell signal. Furthermore, there is a buy signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Tuesday, May 21, 2024, and so far it has fallen -2.84%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.

Apple finds support from accumulated volume at $183.38 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.

This stock has average movements during the day and with good trading volume, the risk is considered to be medium. During the last day, the stock moved $4.38 between high and low, or 2.34%. For the last week, the stock has had daily average volatility of 1.40%.

Apple holds several negative signals and we believe that it will still perform weakly in the next couple of days or weeks. We, therefore, hold a negative evaluation of this stock.Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our analysis conclusion for this stock since the last evaluation from a Buy to a Sell candidate.
