What factors affect the share price of Apple? 

Multiple macro-economic factors affect nearly all stock prices to some degree. These are things such as national politics, unemployment and geopolitical dynamics. In the case of the Apple stock price history the long-term driver of profitability is the ability to deliver innovative products that are easy to use. There are three other main factors which have influenced the performance of the stock. These are:

  • Market sentiment    

Owing to its ability to consistently beat financial return estimates, Apple stock performance can suffer from its own success. Investors now expect the company to surpass earnings estimates and much of this is already priced into the stock.   

  • Political landscape     

Apple is heavily dependent on low-cost manufacturing in China in order to keep retail prices down on its products. Increasing nationalist sentiment in Western nations such as the US have the potential to lead to import restrictions for goods manufactured abroad or increased tariffs. Increasing profits have also garnered attention and have amplified the public call for higher corporate tax to offset inequality.  

  • Consumer attitudes    

Apple stock price history shows that as they innovate market defining products, they are quickly deluged with comparable but lower cost alternatives. Their success can also create competition for their own products. For example, the overwhelming uptake of smartphones and tablets by consumers has created decreasing demand for Mac desktop computers. Apple did benefit substantially from the pandemic of 2020 as many people were forced to work from home or sought in-home entertainment.

Why look at historical data?

Traders can view the Apple price history on the Apple share price history chart. Analysing historical data can provide valuable information regarding the past performance of the underlying asset during different economic or political scenarios. For example, by looking at Apple historical data during significant economic downturns and comparing them you can gain insight into how the underlying cause of a recession will affect the price differently. Analysing Apple price history is also a valuable tool for traders looking to perform a more thorough comparison of stock price based on qualitative or quantitative analysis.

Historical data is also a valuable tool in correlating future revenue growth with stock price. By comparing the Apple share price history increases to increases in revenue you can gain insight into the share price inflation value. Share price inflation is an indication of how much anticipated future growth is already priced into the stock value. The Apple stock price history graph is also valuable to compare performance with other companies or indexes. By reviewing the data, a trader can see that Apple stock outperformed the leading S&P 500 index by more than 64 per cent in 2020.
