Still Hard To Trust

Dow: +18.78…
Nasdaq: +30.66… S&P: +3.18…

The market caught a very weak opening, then some buyers stepped up, but it still wasn’t confidence inspiring.

The China kerfuffle, (contraction in their economy) was one of the reasons we saw a weak open, so I still think the market is as good as its last headline. I still think we see chop with some fits and starts here.  It wouldn’t surprise me even a little if we go down and retest lows before we get “the real rip” higher that we are all looking for.

Heres a headline the market didn’t need or want…….

After the close, AAPL warned on their coming quarter.  Not only is AAPL down $12 or 8% in the aftermarket, but it is dragging down the Nasdaq right now.  The QQQ is currently down about $4 in aftermarket trading.

Tim Cooke said the shortfall was 100% from iPhones and is primarily from China. He said trade tensions between the United States and China put additional pressure on China’s economy.

As a result, It’s dragging down the suppliers in the aftermarket so it will be a tough open for the Nazzy.

QRVO -5.20% SWKS -4.43% AVGO -3.95% STM -3.20% QCOM -2.44% SMH -3.0% NVDA -1.78% AMAT -2.00%

Bull markets tend to take bad news well, as you may have noticed, this market doesn’t. The stock market really doesn’t need AAPL blowing up right now.
