Market-wide movers

A few events this Thursday could move not only Apple shares, but the market more broadly. For instance, ahead of the opening bell, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq have also been trading lower. Here are some potential movers:

  • TheStreet: "Stock futures pointed to a sharp drop for Wall Street on Thursday after a jump in U.S. consumer prices added to worries that higher inflation could hamper an economic recovery."
  • On the calendar of events, there will be reports on PPI and initial claims. Also, an estimated 252 companies will report earnings, Including Walt Disney ($DIS), Alibaba ($BABA), Airbnb ($ABNB) and Coinbase ($COIN).

Apple-specific movers

Beyond broad market movers, Apple stock could also be swayed by company-specific events. For example, Yahoo Finance has reported the following:

"Antonio Garcia Martinez, a former Facebook product manager who recently joined the iPhone maker, is no longer at Apple after his hiring caused an internal backlash because of past comments that drew fire for being racist or sexist."

and Phillip Elmer-Dewitt has reported:

"According to J.P Morgan, flat China iPhone sales in April indicate further market share gains. Shipments were flat m/m in April, which was better than the -18% average seasonal downtick observed historically."
