Binary option traders are mostly interested to know the direction Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will follow. Apple is gaining ground from mid-May. Presently, AAPL is traded at $600.92 per share, which is within the highest values of the whole year. However, the big question for many binary analysts is whether the recently announced significant revenues will be able to boost Apple stock prices.
The degree of rising Apple stock, is reflected by the fact that the current price of binary APPL is higher than its ranges of MA – 50 ($580.22) and MA – 200 ($503.45), as this could be seen on the graph as well.
Taking into account the current economic conditions, the marked gains of Apple are simply spectacular. Since mid-May, the escalation of AAPL is partly because Apple moved much closer to sell iPad 3 in China, with regulator’s product certification. China offers a huge market for Apple products and if iPad3 successfully penetrates, APPL values are likely to increase even further. The corporation just announced that should have arrived in China on Friday, July 20. Binary investors are understanding the opportunities that will be offered. Thus, it is not a surprise that investors’ interest is high and binary APPL is on a steep rise.
Just a day ago, the company announced its financial results for fiscal Q 3 – 2012. The Company posted quarterly revenue of $35.0 billion and quarterly net profit of $8.8 billion, or $9.32 per diluted share. These results compare to revenue of $28.6 billion and net profit of $7.3 billion, or $7.79 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter.
With such financial achievements any binary option trader would expect to see rising binary APPL values. However, consensus expectations had been for profit of $10.35 per share on revenue of $37.2 billion. In the year ago quarter, Apple had turned in revenue of $28.6 billion at $7.79 per share. To give the miss a perspective, since 2003, the company has fallen short of analysts’ projections only once before. As a result, these events are very likely to put some deflationary pressures on Apple’s stock.
Additionally, a very important factor that binary option investors should take into account is that not every quarter Apple is launching a new iPhone it’s a transition quarter. Thus, financial quarters when a new iPhone is not introduced with no doubt will suffer from lower revenues and as a result, binary AAPL’s values could decrease.
