Apple

The Apple stock price gained 1.62% on the last trading day (Friday, 1st Jul 2022), rising from $136.72 to $138.93. During the day the stock fluctuated 2.49% from a day low at $135.66 to a day high of $139.04. The price has risen in 6 of the last 10 days and is up by 6.82% over the past 2 weeks. Volume fell on the last day by -28 million shares and in total, 71 million shares were bought and sold for approximately $9.86 billion. You should take into consideration that falling volume on higher prices causes divergence and may be an early warning about possible changes over the next couple of days.

The last rating was given by Evercore ISI Group on Jun 28, 2022. The price target was changed from 210 to 180.Over the last 90 days, this security got 2 buy, 9 sell, and 0 hold ratings.

The stock lies the upper part of a wide and falling trend in the short term, and this may normally pose a very good selling opportunity for the short-term trader as reaction back towards the lower part of the trend can be expected. A break up at the top trend line at $140.06 will firstly indicate a slower falling rate, but may be the first sign of a trend shift.Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to fall -22.04% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $96.34 and $109.19 at the end of this 3-month period. Do note, that if the stock price manages to stay at current levels or higher, our prediction target will start to change positively over the next few days as the conditions for the current predictions will be broken.

A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday, June 16, 2022, and so far it has risen 6.82%. Further rise is indicated until a new top pivot has been found. Furthermore, there is a buy signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Volume fell during the last trading day despite gaining prices. This causes a divergence between volume and price and it may be an early warning. The stock should be watched closely. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. The Apple stock holds sell signals from both short and long-term moving averages giving a more negative forecast for the stock. Also, there is a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections up, there will be some resistance from the lines at $139.13 and $141.16. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals.

Apple finds support from accumulated volume at $137.59 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 $3.38 between high and low, or 2.49%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 3.02%.

Apple holds several negative signals and this should be a sell candidate, but due to the general chance for a turnaround situation it should be considered as a hold candidate (hold or accumulate) in this position whilst awaiting further development.We have upgraded our analysis conclusion for this stock since the last evaluation from a Sell to a Hold/Accumulate candidate.
