AAPL Slowly Climbing from Abyss

AAPL Slowly Climbing from Abyss

by , 4:20 PM EDT, March 26th, 2008

AAPL has climbed back into the US$140+ range after a series of devastating reports on the U.S. economy led to a massive selloff in January and February. AAPL had recently declined to a level, $120, that hadn't been seen since before the iPhone fever of 2007.

Now, investors are coming back to Apple. The stock hit a high of $145.74 on Wednesday and is holding in the $140 range after lingering in February and March in the $120 mark. In late February, AAPL actually dipped below $120 per share.

Some recent good news in the housing market, Federal Reserve rate cuts, federal backing of lenders and lessening demand for gasoline resulting in a slightly reduced price of crude have all contributed to easing concerns somewhat in the market. As a result, some measure of confidence seems to be emerging as the Apple bulls find a little more confidence in the economy and subsequently the consumer's interest in all things Apple.
