  • Apple - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Aug 25, 2014 5:52 PM | about stocks: AAPL

    The Chart of the Day belongs to Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). I found the stock by looking at the All Time High list and then used the Flipchart function to review the charts, Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 8/13 the stock gained 4.42%,

    Apple Inc. is engaged in designing, manufacturing and marketing mobile communication and media devices, personal computers, and portable digital music players. The Company's products and services include iPhone, iPad, Mac, iPod, Apple TV, a portfolio of consumer and professional software applications, the iOS and Mac OS X operating systems, iCloud, and a range of accessory, service and support offerings. It sells its products worldwide through its online stores, its retail stores, its direct sales force, third-party wholesalers, and resellers.
