Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) earnings are expected to fall 4% in the current fiscal year
Apple stock advanced 0.8% to 204.41. The iPhone maker is working toward a 215.41 cup-with-handle buy point, but a little further away than Facebook or Amazon stock. Like those two FANGs, Apple’s handle is long enough to be its own base.
The RS line has improved somewhat in the past few weeks, but is still some distance from handle highs.
Apple earnings are expected to fall 4% in the current fiscal year and then rebound, somewhat, to 10% growth in fiscal 2020. Meanwhile, Apple stock and earnings are exposed to the China trade war. If trade talks fall apart, Apple could be a notable loser.
