Apple stock could jump by as much as 530%, despite President Trump’s raging trade war with China

“At least from a technical analysis perspective, Apple’s stock is poised to laugh in the face of President Donald Trump’s raging trade war with China,” Brian Sozzi writes for Yahoo Finance.

“Apple’s stock has formed what traders call a ‘golden cross’ chart pattern.

“‘If things calm down [on the trade front] (which might be a BIG ‘if’), the upside could be quite bright for this Apple,’ [Miller Tabak strategist Matt] Maley says,” Sozzi writes. “‘Given the fundamental issues surrounding the stock, investors should keep tight stops on any new long position in Apple, but if history is any guide, it could rally quite a bit from current levels,’ Maley adds.”
