Apple shares slide ahead of holidays over production shortfall (3 min read)

Shares of Apple fell another 2.6% on Monday after Bloomberg reported the company will have 6 million fewer iPhone 14 Pro units produced due to the protests and lockdowns at the factory in China. The Pro units are more expensive and designed with better features to boost the average iPhone selling price. With less consumers getting their hands on it during the coming holiday season, it may put a dent on Apple’s overall revenue for the quarter.

Stocks could see “firework” through the end of the year (2 min read)

Fundstrat’s Tom Lee reiterated his view that softening inflation will change the Fed’s hawkish stance on rate hikes. The cooling inflation number in October sparkled a rally in stocks and he believes the November number will likely do the same. Tom predicts the last 5 weeks of 2022 will be fireworks with the S&P 500 reaching 4,400 - 4,500, about 10% higher from its current level. However, his bullish view is at odds with many top commentators who recently warned stocks could see a steep fall in the face of looming recession.

When you look at the US GDP growth and the US stock returns by decades, you will notice an even greater difference between the two. The reason is because the S&P 500 consists mostly of manufacture and sale of goods while the US GDP is more focused on providing services.
