Apple: Will this rally stick? (video)

CNBC let two fund managers loose on Trading Nation Monday.

Matt Maley of Miller Tabak argued that the stock is at a technical crossroads. According to Chad Morganlander of Washington Crossing Advisors it’s fundamentally doomed.

Cue the video:

Apple sits at a crucial crossroads after June rally, charts suggest from CNBC.

My take: Chad Morganlander was not wrong when described Apple’s earnings growth as “illusionary.”

This company had a lot of cash at one point and very little debt. Currently on its balance sheet, while it’s cash neutral, that cash has been eaten up by stock buybacks that have given it this illusionary effect of earnings growth.

    Chad needs remedial math.

    Apple’s debt is below 3% (s a mixed bag of rates and maturities). Apple earns about 6% per share and generates $Bs more cash than it needs each quarter. Apple can continue buybacks to increase EPS using reserves and future cash flow.

    Apple is not priced as a growth stock. Chad argues against a false premise. Meaningless.
