Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) shares haven’t been doing so well since late last month when the company released its latest earnings report. Some analysts have been predicting that the stock would remain range-bound for quite some time, and now one firm has put some specific numbers on those ranges. Analysts at OCBC Investment Research believe Apple could dip to $490 and might not go above $550 within the foreseeable future.

Investors turning bearish on Apple?

Analyst Philip Teo says that the “key resistances” Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been held between are still holding up. He believes the company’s stock could see even “further correction.” He notes that the stock hit a reversal at its 17-month downtrend resistance and couldn’t surpass the $550 mark over the last couple of trading session.

Billionaires were bullish on Apple in the last quarter, as charts from Fortune and data from iBillionaire indicates. iBillionaire started out as an iOS app and then became an exchange-traded fund which follows 30 stocks which are the top holdings of 21 billionaires.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) was the firm’s top holding in the last quarter, making up 9.4% of its portfolio. Carl Icahn is one of the billionaires the firm follows in determining its holdings, and we know he has remained bullish on Apple into the current quarter.

FactSet suggests that funds could be in the process of flipping on Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) this quarter, perhaps because Icahn dropped his push to get the company to dramatically increase its share repurchasing.

  1. Share price drops on the ex-dividend date by the amount of the dividend and as an added bonus, you’ll get taxed on the dividends. Time and time again, it’s been shown buying stocks prior to dividends is a dumb move if that’s the only reason someone is buying them.

  2. Even if you believe this guy…..just buy at $490 and sell at $550. Keep repeating the process. 11.22% each time you do it. Plus, if you time it right you get the dividends.

  3. “Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) shares haven’t been doing so well since late last month…”

    AAPL hasn’t been doing well the past 15 months.
