Cisco Systems (CSCO) reported earnings yesterday after the bell and is currently down 4.5% on guidance and currency concerns.
Yet another rough day for AAPL with a losing struggle to hold 116. After a fairly optimistic open, AAPL turned solid green and really started looking good around 10am, peaking at 116.82 at 10:12am on relatively high volume. AAPL quickly sold off on moderate volume back to 116, dipping into the red before rebounding back near 116.5 30 minutes later. Failing to reach 116.5 or make a new high, AAPL dropped to 116 again and beyond to 115.65 and subsequently spent the entire afternoon struggling in the upper-115 area with periodic and fleeting peeks above the 116 water-line. There appeared to be hope of closing above 116 but AAPL sold off again towards the close and ended the intra-day session at 115.72. After-hours saw additional very low volume selling and ended 115.59, likely due to "talking heads".
This morning in pre-market, AAPL opened up slightly above yesterday's intra-day close and, in a similar phenomenon as yesterday's after-hours, dipped down on low volume, reaching a low point of 114.85 at 6:55am before bouncing back towards 115.5 in later pre-market trading. AAPL is currently down 27 cents to 115.45.
