Apple stock set to snap its longest streak above this key chart level in 6 years

BUZ INVESTORS  Apple stock set to snap   Shares of Apple Inc. dropped Monday below a closely watched chart level, which could swing the short-term technical outlook to bearish from bullish for the first time in six months.

The technology giant stock AAPL, -3.24%  started sinking around midday on Friday, helping lead a broad selloff in the technology sector as investors appeared to cash in on recent gains ahead of the weekend. Losses were extended Monday, after Mizuho downgraded Apple on concerns that investor enthusiasm surrounding the iPhone 8’s release later this year is already baked into the stock.

The stock slumped 2.4% in midday trade, after shedding 3.9% on Friday. That put the stock on course to close below its 50-day moving average, which many technical analysts view as a dividing line between short-term uptrends and downtrends, for the first time since Dec. 8, 2016.




Apple stock set to snap

 

It looks like the tech selloff from Friday is spilling into the Monday morning trading session despite months of sharp gains.

Goldman Sachs turned cautious on the sector, warning investors that they should not consider tech as a safe haven, while some fear it has become a massive market bubble.

China 2016 GDP Growth Weakest in 26 Years

BUZ INVESTORS  China 2016 GDP Growth The Chinese economy expanded 6.7 percent in 2016, lower than a 6.9 percent growth in 2015. It was the weakest full-year expansion since 1990 but within the government’s target range of 6.5 to 7 percent, as investment and consumption growth has softened.

In 2016, services sector/tertiary industry rose 7.8 percent; easing from 8.3 percent in 2015 and accounting for 51.6 percent of GDP, up 1.4 percentage points. Manufacturing and construction/secondary industry grew by 6.1 percent, compared to a 6 percent a year earlier.




China 2016 GDP Growth

Final consumption expenditure accounted for 64.6 percent of GDP, lower than 66.4 percent in the preceding year. Meanwhile, capital formation contributed 42.2 percent while net exports were a 6.8 percent drag on growth.

Investment in fixed assets (excluding rural households) grew by 8.1 percent, the least since 1999, following a 10 percent last year. Investment by the state holding enterprises increased by 18.7 percent (vs 10.9 percent in 2015) while those of private investment went up by 3.2 percent (vs 10.1 percent in 2015).

Total retail sales of consumer goods rose 10.4 percent, slower than 10.7 percent in 2015. Sales in urban areas grew by 10.4 percent and those in rural by 10.9 percent. Online retail sales rose 26.2 percent versus 33.3 percent the prior year. Retail sales of physical goods increased of 25.6 percent from 31.6 percent in 2015, accounting for 12.6 percent of the total sales of consumer goods.
Total value of imports and exports in yuan terms decreased by 0.9 percent comapred to 7.0 percent decline in a year earlier, with exports dropping 2.0 percent while imports going up by 0.6 percent.
In the December quarter, the economy expanded 6.8 percent, compared to a 6.7 percent growth in the previous three quarters while markets expected a 6.7 percent expansion. It was the strongest growth since the fourth quarter 2015, supported by strong consumer spending, higher government  expenditure and robust bank lending.

On a quarterly basis, the GDP advanced 1.7 percent, compared to a 1.8 percent growth in the previous three months. It was the weakest expansion since the March quarter 2016.

BUZ INVESTORS  Core CPI Tumbles  The reflation trade is officially over. At the same time that retail sales posted the worst 2 month drop in 2 years, CPI – the bedrock behind the Fed’s rate hiking intentions – just hit a brick wall, and after months of headline CPI growth mostly the back of the energy “base effect”, in March this ended with a thud, when headline CPI printed at -0.3%, badly missing expectations of an unchanged print. The number was so bad, all 79 economist estimates missed the number (predicting a -0.2% low). The biggest driver for the headline plunge was energy, which declined 3.2%, with the gasoline index falling 6.2%, and other major energy

 Core CPI Tumbles

Among the core components, the shelter index rose 0.1 percent, and the indexes for motor vehicle insurance, medical care, tobacco, airline fares, and alcoholic beverages also increased in March. These increases were offset by declines in several indexes, including those for wireless telephone services, used cars and trucks, new vehicles, and apparel.

More details from the report that will likely assure that Yellen will not be hiking rates for a long time:

The index for all items less food and energy declined 0.1 percent in March. The index for communication fell 3.5 percent as the index for wireless telephone services decreased 7.0 percent, the largest 1-month decline in the history of the index. The index for used cars and trucks continued to fall, declining 0.9 percent in March, and the new vehicles index decreased 0.3 percent. The apparel index declined 0.7 percent in March after rising 0.6 percent in February.

Can Apple Stock Repeat This question haunts Apple stock on a daily basis. Investors are unsure about what to expect from AAPL stock now that smartphone sales are slipping across the board, particularly in China. After all, Chinese sales were supposed to provide the next big tailwind for Apple stock.

However, China hasn’t been the knight in shining armor that Apple stock bulls hoped for. The share price may have recovered from its 2016 blues, but I remain skeptical that Apple can achieve a repeat performance of the last 10 years. For one thing, the great Steve Jobs is gone.

Can Apple Stock Repeat

They brought billions of dollars into the firm, but it scarcely mattered because Apple was a victim of its own success. Even billions of dollars in new revenue were a drop in the bucket for the world’s richest company, so the price of Apple stock began to stagnate. The company needed an “iPhone-level” success story to repeat the gains of the last decade, but none were on the horizon.

The grim reality of this situation had investors primed for a bearish turn on AAPL stock. In fact, you could say that China’s slowdown was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Weak numbers from the Asia Pacific region cost AAPL stock nearly one-fifth of its market value.

 

Will the Bullish Apple Pattern Repeat? Watch This Technical Level

Apple (AAPL) stock broke below a two-year uptrend line in July 2015, quickly retracing 50% of the previous rally move. It then began consolidating in a large triangle pattern on the weekly chart, and a break above that pattern downtrend line initiated this year’s rally.

The process is repeating, and Apple stock is now poised at a second  pattern resistance level. The integrity of that level could determine the intermediate-term direction of the stock price.

Additionally, Apple is a holding in the Action Alerts PLUS charitable trust portfolio, which is managed by TheStreet’s Jim Cramer. Along with Research Director Jack Mohr, Cramer wrote to subscribers on Friday to reiterate their $130 price target on the stock.

 “Apple is a name to own, not trade,” Cramer and Mohr commented. Even when the shares sink, they said, “We remain content in our long-term view, a thesis where smartphone dominance is buoyed by strength and continued growth in Services.”

as the Canadian dollar is a commodity-sensitive currency, any movement in crude oil costs can have an effect on the motion of USD/CAD. Crude expenses remain robust, because the current settlement between OPEC and other oil exporters, which calls for manufacturing cuts, is expected to start on January 1. below the agreement, manufacturing is predicted to drop 1.eight million barrels in step with day. Saudi Arabia, OPEC’s largest producer, has agreed to endure most of the cuts in production. however, even though oil exporters abide with the aid of their commitments under the deal, it’s questionable if crude fees will keep to upward push, as US shale manufacturers are probable to step in if oil costs pass above the $60 level.

TSLA Stock: Why Tesla Could Own the Next 50 Years

  • Buz Investors Watching Tesla Could Own the Next 50 Years There is no shortage of opinions on Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA), but that doesn’t mean all of those opinions are worth listening to. When it comes to Tesla stock (TSLA), there’s only one endgame which makes sense
  • TSLA stock is likely to keep growing because CEO Elon Musk is a perennial winner. He has proved it over two decades of stellar innovation and management, yet TSLA stock bears continue to doubt him.
  • I read articles by these folks every day. Their analysis of what he’s doing is less factual than it is an endless parade of nonsense. If you want the truth, look at history. Look at what Musk has been able to achieve, what he’s been able to overcome.

Tesla Could Own the Next 50 Year What This Means

TSLA Stock: Why Tesla Could Own the Next 50 Years

Tesla Could Own the Next 50 Years I’ll admit the company isn’t the best at meeting deadlines. For instance, Tesla failed to meet delivery estimates in the first half of 2016. That cost the company some goodwill. I understand that, but I don’t get why TSLA stock bears think these missed targets will spell long-term doom for the company. It’s that part of the argument I don’t comprehend.

Sure, Tesla didn’t scale its production as quickly as expected. But demand was still strong. Customers don’t care that Tesla missed a few abstract targets. Remember that 400,000 people pre-ordered the Tesla “Model 3” within a week of its unveiling. It was the largest product opening of all time.

If you look back at Elon Musk’s 2006 “Master Plan” for Tesla, you can see what I’m talking about. In that blog post, he set out a bunch of ambitious goals for Tesla. Years later, no one remembers whether those projects were delayed by a few months.

Despite his goals sounding far-fetched, Musk still made them come true. Knowing this bit of history changes the complexion of Musk’s current promises. He knows what he’s doing. Moreover, Tesla stock shouldn’t be affected by a momentary delay. It should be weighed on the probability of his success.

Looking at the 5-minute intraday chart, we get a different perspective.  For this, you can see a slowing of the trend move lower. The low for the day – just before the ECB fireworks – bottomed at a lower channel trend line on the chart.  The rally after the headlines, went back to the topside trend line.  The subsequent low found buyers ahead of the day’s lows. The 100 bar MA on the 5-minute has put a ceiling so far on the upside.

Research firm Markit said its U.K. construction purchasing managers’ index rose to 52.3 in September from August’s reading of 49.2. Economists had expected the index to drop to 49.0 in September.
