Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) A new partnership with Salesforce should grow Apple’s iOS enterprise market share
Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Salesforce (NASDAQ:CRM) are joining forces in a partnership that makes Apple stock even more attractive as a long-term holding.
On Sept. 24, the two technology giants announced that Salesforce would be working with Apple to redesign its app to have exclusive new features on iOS. Moreover, the two companies are working together to provide tools for Salesforce developers to build their own native apps.
Essentially, Salesforce is choosing Apple as its “preferred IoT ecosystem.” That is a good thing for Apple stock.

A white body occurred (because prices closed higher than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 4 white candles and 6 black candles for a net of 2 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 27 white candles and 23 black candles for a net of 4 white candles.
An engulfing bullish line occurred (where a white candle’s real body completely contains the previous black candle’s real body). The engulfing bullish pattern is bullish during a downtrend. It then signifies that the momentum may be shifting from the bears to the bulls.
If the engulfing bullish pattern occurs during an uptrend (which appears to be the case with APPLE INC), it may be a last engulfing top which indicates a top. The test to see if this is the case is if the next candle closes below the top of the current (white) candle’s real body.
