This week's Apple trading strategies (11/2-11/6)

A place for Apple traders and investors to share their best ideas — 2020 U.S. presidential election issue.

To get things rolling, here's Gene Munster on CNBC Thursday trying to explain to investors — in vain as it turns out —  why Apple reporting lower iPhone sales in the fourth quarter didn't mean that the company was doomed.

Below: Apple vs. the S&P 500 (normalized)…

Disclosure: Although I am now an Apple shareholder (see Why I bought a share of Apple, my first), I am in no position to give trading advice. Don’t blame me if you drain your IRA doing something you read about here.

    I’ll be watched AAPL at the Open. If it continues down I’ll continue waiting for an entry, although, now that WS has had time to digest Apple’s 10Q/K I think it’ll start rising. In that scenario I’ll be a Buyer of Weekly in-the-money Call Spreads.

    I see that $1.00 Spreads are now being offered. I don’t think I’ll buy those, instead I’ll buy the $2.50 Spreads as all my data (success/failure) is based of those.

    I should point out that so far in FY2021 Weeklies have been successful (using my strategy) 4X, failing just once on the earnings report.

    I’d say this is clearly a buying opportunity, because of Wall St’s misinterpretation of Apple’s results.
