Apple shares dropped a further 0.6% yesterday, making five straight days of decline. There has also been an increase in the number of investors ‘shorting’ AAPL – effectively betting that the share price will fall.

But while some are pointing to the dramatic scale of the total loss in market capitalization, others say that the numbers need to be viewed in context.

One commentary noted that the total loss in value experienced by the five largest U.S. tech companies in one week was enough to have bought Boeing …

While the recent fall in Apple’s share price comes in the context of tech stocks in general taking a hit, the latest data suggests that investors are more pessimistic about AAPL specifically.

Data compiled by S3 Partners shows that ‘short interest’ in the stock – investors staking money on Apple’s share price falling – has climbed by $1.3B in the past month. This makes Apple the third most shorted company after Tesla and Alibaba …

If Trump enacted his promised corporate tax reforms, Apple would likely repatriate the bulk of its $230B cash reserves held overseas, and see its profits jump by 16%. The prediction was made by Citi in analysis seen by Business Insider.

Trump’s tax reform plans include reducing the corporate tax rate from 35% to 15% in the US, and applying a tax of only 10% to the profits of US companies that want to repatriate cash being held overseas […] The proposals would make it likely that Apple would move its foreign cash back to the US in order to pay the least amount of tax. In the most recent quarter, Apple said it was holding $246 billion in cash, of which $230 billion was held in foreign subsidiaries.

The combination of the two would have a significant impact on earnings per share, says Citi …
