Is Apple stock worth fighting the Fed?

“Apple is a schizophrenic stock, TheStreet founder Jim Cramer said Wednesday, and it is best expressed by what Bernstein analyst Toni Sacconaghi said Wednesday,” Tom Terrarosa writes for TheStreet.

“Not to mention, the market is still anxiously awaiting word on a potential interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve,” Terrarosa writes. “‘If you have more governors come on and say, ‘Look we have to tighten because we have a hotter economy,’ then Apple won’t matter either,’ he said. ‘You’ll be fighting the Fed. Right now, you’re fighting the Fed if you buy stocks.'”
