Even after Monday's price break Apple is still up 20.6% over the last 12 months and now has a 12 month forward price-to-earnings ratio of just 9.6. Apple reports its Q4 quarterly results on Jan. 23 and Wall Street analysts project that the company will earn $13.43 per share. It will be important to track whether or not this EPS estimate is lowered over the next week. Despite a price decline from above $700 to below $500 most analysts stubbornly keep their lofty ratings and price targets with a median price target of $745 and 21 strong buy and 28 buy ratings, six hold ratings, and only two underperform and one sell rating. The daily chart for Apple ($501.75) is negative and the weekly chart shows oversold Mojo with the stock below its five-week modified moving average at $530.44.
