All eyes on Apple as Twitter takes to the road

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Monday, the 28th of October.

After the bell today, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) reports its earnings and this could be a real bellwether report for the market. With all of our technical indicators pointing in a positive direction, I believe that earnings will be on par or better than expected. I continue to rely on the Trade Triangle technology to stay in this market. Upside objective for Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) continues to remain at the $580-$600 level. [Read more...]

Here is a little known stock that Carl Icahn likes

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Friday, the 25th of October.

There’s no doubt about it, Carl Icahn has been on a winning streak lately with Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) making big bucks even by billionaire status. One of Carl’s other stocks is the energy company, Talisman Energy Inc. (NYSE:TLM).

Technically I also like this stock, as all of the Trade Triangles are in a positive mode. Last month Talisman Energy closed at $11.51 and is currently trading around the $12.30 area, up a solid 6.8%. [Read more...]

Apple's Killer New Strategy And Why Everyone Missed It

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Thursday, the 24th of October.

Earlier this week, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) unveiled its new lineup of iPads and Macs that are going to push it into the fourth quarter. One key in the presentation that most observers might have missed while focusing on the products, was the fact that Apple intends to include and provide free software like Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand. These software programs are first class and represent some of the company's crown jewels. It's Apple's new strategy to bring more and more new users into Apple's ecosystem. Once in, it is hard to get out and Apple has you for life.

This strategy reminds me of King Gillette, of Gillette shaving and razors. King Gillette's strategy was simple, give away the razor and I will sell you the high-profit razor blades. In Apple's case, the software is the razor, the iPad, iPhone, the Mac and all of the other Apple hardware pieces are the razor blades. Not a bad strategy for Apple in the tablet wars. [Read more...]

Showtime For Apple

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Tuesday, the 22nd of October.

Today at 10am PT/1pm ET, it's showtime for Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco. In previous years, there has been an air of mystery about what surprises Apple has for the market. This year however, most of the news has been spilled and the world will be looking for new iPads with retina displays, improvements in the Mac line and possibly more information on Maverick, Apple's new operating system for the desktop and laptop world.

As always, Apple teases us with a slogan, and this year is no different as the slogan that's draped around the Yerba Buena Center reads, "We Still Have a Lot to Cover." What exactly that means remains to be seen. That air of the next big thing is one of the reasons Apple events are so intriguing to the world.

In addition to analyzing Apple, I will also be looking at the major indices, crude oil, gold, and the US dollar.

I always appreciate your comments and feedback, so please feel free to leave them on this blog, along with any questions you might have for us.

Have a great trading day,

AAPL, NFLX, FB, YELP, all in today's update

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of INO.com and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Monday, the 21st of October.

In today's report, I will be covering many of the major markets that have been pushing the indices to new highs.

I'll start with Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), who is rolling out new products tomorrow at 10am PT/1pm ET at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center. The slogan for the Apple roll out is, "we still have a lot to cover," so it should be a market mover.

I will also be looking at Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), which has turned out to be a big winner for us this year. Netflix is reporting earnings today after the bell. [Read more...]
