Positions In Apple and Yahoo Before Today's Earnings

After the close of business today, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) will release their earnings. I thought it would be interesting to share with you how the Trade Triangles are positioned going into the release of their earnings.

As always, expectations are extremely high for Apple. But it's a different picture for Yahoo who is sitting on a $40 billion cash hoard from their stake in Alibaba.

The question will be, how many iPhones did Apple sell and how did the iMac perform in comparison to the previous quarter? Did people opt for the iPhone 6+ or did they simply go with the regular iPhone 6?

In the case of Yahoo, investors will want the $40 billion windfall in the form of a shareholder dividend. On the other hand, if the money is returned, the tech world is going to see Yahoo as a non-innovative company that can't find anything creative to grow the company and make it more relevant. I am afraid that Marissa Mayer is in a no-win situation.

On Monday, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) released its earnings that were seen as a mixed bag and a big disappointment in the marketplace. I'll also be looking at Microsoft to show you exactly how the Trade Triangles were positioned in that stock before their earnings came out.

Also included in today's video will be a quick look at oil, gold, the dollar and the major indices.

As always, I welcome your feedback and any questions. Please don't hesitate to make a comment below this post.

Have a great day trading and watch for those earnings after the close of business today.
