Last week, Apple (AAPL) saw a significant decrease in its market capitalization, losing $76.4B and dropping 2.92% in value. The decrease in market cap can be attributed to various factors, such as weaker-than-expected earnings results, changes in market sentiment, and increased competition in the electronics/appliances industry.
In terms of earnings, Apple's Q2 2023 results were mixed. While the company reported revenue of $90.1B, beating expectations, its earnings per share (EPS) of $1.28 fell short of the estimated $1.41. The company's iPhone sales were also down compared to the same period last year, which is a concerning trend for investors. Despite these challenges, Apple's services segment, which includes the App Store, Apple Music, and iCloud, continued to perform well, with revenue of $16.9B.
When we look at the broader electronics/appliances industry, it appears that Apple is not alone in its struggles. According to A.I.dvisor's analysis of 40 stocks in the industry, 60% were in a downtrend, indicating a bearish sentiment. This trend is consistent with the overall market, which has been experiencing increased volatility in recent weeks due to rising interest rates and concerns about inflation.
Looking at AAPL's recent performance, the stock is currently in a downward trend, falling for three consecutive days as of April 12, 2023. This is viewed as a bearish sign, and investors should keep a close eye on the stock for future declines. Historical data suggests that in situations where AAPL declined for three days, the price further declined in 57% of cases within the following month.

Overall, while Apple's recent market cap decrease is concerning, it is important to consider the broader industry trends and potential future outlook of the company.
