This week’s Apple trading strategies (1/24-1/28/22)

A place for Apple traders and investors to share their best ideas — fiscal Q1 2022 earnings week.

To get things rolling, here’s Jim Cramer on Friday’s Mad Money assessing last week’s damage and laying out his “game plan” for this week’s jam-packed earnings schedule. The Apple bit starts at the 6:55 minute mark.

    No. It’s not a full-blown market crash as the caller feared. It’s portfolio rebalancing after an incredible year for the market in 2021, it’s the taking of gains early in the new tax year, a flight to quality and the migration to dividend paying equities as interest rates rise and opportunity costs become a hurdle for equities. More and more small investors are seeking guidance in their investment choices. Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and Merrill/BofA, for examples, are monetizing this trend big time. In my view, what’s ahead for the market is already being foretold by research reports and analysis from the major firms that are advising their client and publishing their work. I suggest small investors develop a clear and thoughtful investment plan for the year ahead. It’s not a time to play “hunches.” It’s a time to be consistent and successfully execute a clear, thoughtful and consistent plan for the years ahead.

    For Apple, if there’s good news this week, celebrate! If there’s a sell-off in response to December quarter earnings and March quarter guidance, thoughtfully consider adding to positions or initiating a position in Apple. The company, in my view, is fundamentally sound with incredible growth opportunities ahead. Apple is a global leader with the ability to amply invest strategically for the future (look at the capex!) while returning capital to shareholders through share repurchases and a rising dividend. However, it is important to perform your own due diligence and arrive at your own conclusions. In today’s market “Caveat Emptor!” prevails. Research, research, plan and decide. I’m looking forward to December quarter results and March quarter guidance. “Stay tuned” to Apple 3.0 for coverage of results.
