Given the recent sell-side activity from congressional members, it leads one to question Apple’s future. First let’s look at how Apple has been performing recently.
As you can see, despite the recent sell-off by members of Congress, Apple has performed well over the past three months, achieving a 23.06% return.
Over the past three months, 5 congressional members have sold over $48K dollars worth of Apple stock, while the stock has gained 23.06% over the same timeframe.
The recent sell-side activity by congress could be a result of members capitalizing on gains if they believe the current trend will not continue. On the other hand, congressional members can sell stock for a variety of reasons, including personal financial needs or diversification of their investment portfolios, so it’s important to keep a balanced perspective and look at the company’s performance holistically.
As always, investors should conduct their due diligence and consider other factors, such as a company’s financials, analyst ratings, and broader market trends, before making any investment decisions.
