I'll admit, Apple
(NASDAQ:AAPL) isn’t a name I’m super crazy about, as I feel it is still a crowded trade. Nonetheless, you can’t argue with the facts: It has been very strong recently. In fact, AAPL was up an incredible nine days in a row.
First things first, I see a nice-looking breakout, but it is also rather over-extended in the near-term. Looking back in history, we found just nine other instances AAPL was up nine days in a row. The returns are here.
Not too surprisingly, going out a month the shares have pulled back 7.07% on average and were up less than half the time. Still, note the median drop is a more respectable 2.45% pullback. This is due to a huge drop back in 2000 skewing the results some.
Here are all the occurrences and results after nine up days. For fun, the all-time record was a 12-day win streak back in 2003. Now, take note that the 60% drop a month later back in 2000 isn’t doing much to help the results. Meanwhile, the other one month later results really aren’t all too bad overall.
