In this video, I talk about this note-worthy day of trading for Apple shares. Despite overall weakness in the market, Apple climbed higher and touched the $2 trillion in early afternoon trading – only to pull back before the closing bell.
As you watch the video above, keep these few important topics in mind:
- This is the second time this week that Apple flirts with $2 trillion, but fails to stay above the mark. The S&P 500 is also struggling to break new all-time highs.
- Apple’s services bundle could be the “next big thing” to happen to this segment, now that the company has delivered on its goal to double 2016 revenues.
- Jim Cramer reiterates his message: “own Apple, don’t trade it”. I tend to agree with him, as I don’t remember ever being bearish this stock.
- If interested, check out my January 2020 article in which I looked closer at the value of Apple’s services business.
