The chart below is all you need to know. I don't see a breakout happening for the stock. I am sure AAPL is a great company but it's market cap is 1/2 a trillion $. That is all you need to know. Apple is an awesome company but the awesomeness won't always translate into the $ for stock holders. I don't know about long term, but short term this ticker topped right here. Use a 4% stop, just in case this is a break out.
