Diamonds and Dogs
Apple (AAPL) shining brightly. Apple is up 3% to an eight month high, flirting with the trillion dollar market cap, following strong earnings and guidance. Apple continues to diversify their business as the iPhone division fell to about 48% of total revenue. However, analysts are excited about the iPhone cycle coming in 2020 with the first 5G iPhones. At least 10 analysts raised target prices with some as high as $270 a share.
Under Armour (UAA) under pressure. The sportswear apparel maker is down 3% today after dropping over 15% yesterday following earnings. Of the top four apparel makers in the US, Under Armour was the only one to report a sales decline in North America.
