The Silicon Valley giant has become much more than just a mobile-device manufacturer. In the fourth quarter of the last year, Apple reported record revenue due to the progress in its services such as Apple TV, iTunes, and its App Store.

Good news that now it is the time of earnings season! Apple will publish its economic results on January 28 at 00:00 MT time.

On the contrary, if the figures disappoint, the price will go down. Remember that FBS traders can make both buy and sell trades while trading stock CFDs.

If it does, the way up to the high of January 8 at $132.00 will be open.
