With Apple Inc. AAPL 0.72% set to release Q4 earnings this week, there’s been a growing level of concern in the market about the company’s short-term technical breakdown.
After hitting new all-time highs of nearly $133 in early 2015, Apple has failed to regain its bullish stride. In fact, the stock has dipped into the low $90s twice since then, and appears to be heading into earnings more than 30 percent below last year’s highs.
