Apple shares notch first 7-day win streak since February 2015

“Shares of Apple ‘s stock closed higher for the seventh consecutive day on Wednesday, lifting the Dow Jones industrial average,” Anita Balakrishnan reports for CNBC.

“It was the company’s first seven-day win streak since the week ending February 18, 2015, and the stock’s upward move had the most positive impact on the Dow and the Nasdaq 100,” Balakrishnan reports. “Its shares are up about 4 percent over the past week.”

“It all comes just a day after Apple’s stock hit its 2016 intraday high of $118.69 a share, as rival Samsung cut $2.3 billion off its profit guidance for the third quarter,” Balakrishnan reports. “Kulbinder Garcha, an analyst at Credit Suisse, estimates Apple could capture at least half of the volume of Note 7 phones that Samsung was poised to sell. Brian White, a Drexel Hamilton analyst, estimated in a research note that Apple could pick up at least 8 million extra unit sales this calendar year, out of the 10 million to 14 million Galaxy Note 7 phones he expected to be sold in the second half of the year. ”

    1. MDN will have you believe that the iPhone 7 is the greatest thing ever but it remains to be seen if strong iPhone sales are primarily a result of Samsung’s bad battery engineering or due to Apple’s “courage”.

      Has Apple made it as easy to switch to iOS as it has attempted to make it hard to leave? It’s not like dedicated Android users don’t have a huge array of choices. It doesn’t seem like Apple cares much, they aren’t doing any switcher promotions.

      Also, after badmouthing non-Apple users at every opportunity, why would MDN now suddenly want those people to join their clique?

  1. Imagine if they had a movie streaming service, iPhone 8 now, streaming music 4 years ago and an echo type product. Where would the stock be now. Samsung only got big because Apple failed for 2 years to increase the size of the phone. Slow slow slow. Now first with and now behind. no social. No push for secure email over Google. No 4K support on Apple TV. Even though IPhone 6s and 7 shoot 4K. Pro product left to rot and the investment of the pros who kept loyal to Apple in the hard times mes.

  2. It’s somewhat sad to have an announcement how Apple shares have had a 7-day win streak. Heck, all the major tech stocks have been breaking records for an entire year except for Apple. Yahoo’s one year share gains have Apple looking like Apple was the failing company, not Yahoo. Yes, it’s nice to see Apple make some share gains but this is a company that has $180 billion sitting in the bank collecting cobwebs. Apple isn’t likely going to reach $130 this year or next. Apple might just be coasting until they get settled into the new headquarters (I hope). To me, it just seems as though Apple is barely trying to do anything at this point. Amazon keeps making all the big strategy moves while Apple is content to keep trying to sell more iPhones in a totally glutted smartphone market. How is that fancy AppleTV doing. I don’t really hear too much about it being the powerful gaming platform it was supposed to turn into.

    Apple having to rely on rivals making huge mistakes really doesn’t cut it. A company can’t just sit back and be that complacent. Anyway, let’s see how much more Apple can make in share gains before Wall Street calls to massively short Apple because of those meager gains.

      1. Hey C1! Been a long time.

        I am glad that AMZN is working out for you and others. But be careful. Momentum plays are fickle and AMZN does not have a good track record of actual profits to justify its lofty valuation.

    1. I agree with your Apple TV assessment. It was an uninspiring update, but maybe they are testing the waters for something more grand like an all-in-1 panel or something. It seems like Apple is strategically more methodical these days. For example, Beats morphed into a potentially new paradigm with AirPods. If these AI partnerships and accusations pan-out then this space will be very compelling.

  3. [“Shares of Apple ‘s stock closed higher for the seventh consecutive day on Wednesday, lifting the Dow Jones industrial average,” Anita Balakrishnan reports for CNBC.]

    While technically true, AAPL is still about $110 billion in market cap below what they were when they joined the DJIA.
