Twitter, Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) has the potential to become a much bigger force in media, denying an opportunity for Apple stock

With each day that goes by, Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) becomes increasingly entrenched in our lives. Obviously, the prevalence of this social media platform boosts the case for TWTR stock. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) subscription news service Apple News+. It’s a wrinkle that could negatively impact AAPL stock.

Just to recap, earlier this year, the consumer technology giant announced a mobile-app service which aggregates various news sources. The idea here was both simple yet brilliant: provide readers with access to hundreds of magazines and leading newspapers, all in one place. And if market enthusiasm is any indicator, Apple stock steadily gained – after a brief volatile phase — following the announcement.

It’s no surprise that both Apple and the magazine/newspaper industry jumped on this symbiotic opportunity. For years, print publications have cratered, even in outlets such as grocery stores. Waiting in line at the checkout counter can sometimes be a frustrating experience. That’s why grocers target this area for magazines and other publications.

It’s been a great revenue source until digitalization disrupted everything. However, traditional print-media companies are warming up to digital trends: if you can’t beat them, join them. And this is the driving force behind Apple News+. Theoretically, it provides another revenue channel to further lift AAPL stock.

Just as importantly, Apple News+ gives the tech firm a chance to do some disrupting of its own. As mentioned at the top, Twitter has penetrated the mainstream consciousness. Naturally, TWTR stock has moved higher after slugging through its doldrums.

With elements like peak smartphone negatively impacting Apple stock, the underlying company could use another sales base. However, early indicators suggest that Apple News+ is no panacea.

Momentum Indicators

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 81.7652. This is an overbought reading. However, a signal is not generated until the Oscillator crosses below 80 The last signal was a buy 5 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 52.20. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 42 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 74. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 4 period(s) ago.
