Apple stock slides despite upbeat quarterly results

17:07 29 April 2022

Apple reported Q1 2022 strong financial results on Thursday. The company proved that over the years it has built a strong brand, for which demand remains high even in the face of weaker market conditions. Still, some selling pressure appeared in the pre-market  as the tech-giant expects slower growth in the next quarters. Also negative sentiment around the technology sector increased after yesterday's surprisingly negative US GDP reading as some investors believe this may be a first sign of recession.

  • At the same time, Apple revealed that it expects a slightly weaker pace of growth in later quarters of the year due to supply chain issues and a projected temporary slowdown in service growth, which is driven by a number of economic factors, including reduced spending among consumers caused by rising mortgage rates;

  • However, the company expects service revenue to continue to grow at a double-digit pace. Apple noted that supply chain issues and unfavorable currency movements may weaken the company's ability to meet demand for its products.

Apple (AAPL.US), D1 interval. The company's stock has been in a strong uptrend since March 2020. However, we see that the uptrend line was broken around mid-February which may have raised concerns among bulls. However, the declines have been halted around $151, which coincides with the 23.6 Fibonacci retracement of the last upward wave. Further downward reaction towards $150 could push the price lower towards the next support at the level around $133, which coincides with the 38.2 Fibonacci retracement and highs from December and August 2020.
