After Last Week’s Rally Is Apple Stock Poised To Rise Further?

AAPL: Apple logo

The shares of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) have gained about 9% over the past month (about 21 trading days), trading at about $156 per share. This compares to the S&P 500 which has gained about 7% over the same period. The stock was also up by about 6% over the last week (five trading days). The recent rally comes as Apple’s Q4 FY’22 results came in ahead of expectations, in contrast with fellow tech titans Amazon, Alphabet, and Meta, who all missed estimates, amid weaker demand and easing Covid-19 tailwinds. Over Q4, Apple’s revenues stood at $90.1 billion, up about 8% year-over-year, and EPS came in at $1.29, up about 3% versus last year. However, growth rates for Apple’s bread-and-butter iPhone businesses fell short of estimates as interest in entry level models was weak, although premium devices such as the iPhone Pro apparently saw a stronger uptake. Apple’s services business has also seen a meaningful slowdown, with year-over-year growth coming in at just 5%, compared to double-digit levels in previous quarters.

Now that Apple stock has seen gains of about 9% over the last month, will it continue its upward trajectory in the near term, or is a decline imminent? Going by historical performance, there is a roughly 64% chance of a rise in Apple stock over the next monthOut of 493 instances in the last ten years that Apple stock saw a twenty-one-day rise of 9% or more, 314 of them resulted in Apple stock rising over the subsequent month (21 trading days). This historical pattern reflects 314 out of 493, or about 64% chance of a rise in Apple stock over the coming month, implying a positive near-term outlook for the stock.
