Perfect Time to Invest In FAANG Stocks
Information is not investment advice
Apple, Microsoft, and Google reported their financial results for the second quarter. Despite strong earnings, the companies closed in red yesterday. Why? The global market sentiment worsened due to China’s tech crackdown and the Covid-19 resurgence. Besides, investors expected a tremendous profit from these companies and priced in a good outcome before the releases. Thus, investors who bought the stocks before the earnings reports started selling them afterward. In this case, traders say the so-called “buy the rumor, sell the fact” scenario happened.
What to do now?
The stocks from the FAANG group will keep rising in the long term with a high probability. Therefore, most investors are eagerly waiting for these stocks to drop to invest in them at a lower price. Let’s discuss the earnings results of Apple, Microsoft, and Google.
Apple has released encouraging results. Just look: iPhone sales rose 49.8% in the second quarter of 2021 in comparison with the second quarter of 2020, while Apple's services revenue increased 32.9%, marking the fastest pace of growth since 2018. Wow, so good! Besides, both earnings results and revenue exceeded analysts’ expectations. These numbers tell investors that the Apple company is well-positioned and it will grow further.
From a technical point of view, Apple is just slightly below the all-time highs. If it falls to the low of July 19 at $142.00, the stock price should stop at this support level and move to the upside. According to UBS, the stocks of Apple will hit $166, while JPMorgan has set its price target at $175.
Google’s earnings results came out better as well. Google's core advertising business showed a 69% increase in revenue in comparison to the year prior. Moreover, Google’s cloud services and AI sector added tailwinds to the company. On the daily chart, the stock price has reversed down to the $2700 support level. It may start rising from it today or it may drop to the low of July 19 at $2585, where it will reverse up.
Microsoft demonstrated astonishing earnings and revenue results for the second quarter as well. Its cloud segment rose more than analysts expected. The stock price of Microsoft may fall to the 200-day moving average of $280 or even deeper to the low of July 19 at $275. After that, the price should reverse up.

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop? Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
