AAPL stock has been very predictable at earnings time. Almost like clock work. October 18 2011 Q4 earnings, Apple Inc. stock traded up the week ahead of earnings and then sold off after earnings. January 24 2012 Q1 earnings, the stock traded down the week ahead of earnings, and the stock went up after earnings. April 24 2012 Q2 earnings, the week ahead of earnings the stock traded down and the stock went up after earnings. That is the clock work of AAPL. If the the stock trades higher ahead of earnings , short it. If AAPL stock trades lower ahead of earnings buy. Please reference the chart below. As always consult with a professional before making any investment or trading decisions.
