In the last few years, the days leading up to and following major new product announcements has been an active time for Apple shares.
Anticipation of new technologies and speculation on the potential for success of new products from this development-driven company has attracted a lot of attention from the media, short-term traders and long-term investors.
Apple's next big product announcement has been scheduled for Sept. 9 and has the potential to spark significant trading action and potential opportunities over the next several weeks.
Within this report, we discuss:
• The impact new product launches have had on the performance of Apple shares historically.
• How Apple is always under pressure to remain at the front of the pack having seen previous leaders stumble.
• The 'enter on the rumour, exit on the news' strategies traders have cultivated when trading Apple shares around a product launch.
•The current rally in their stock that suggests product launch optimism has already been priced in to the shares.
