Apple iPhone concerns

Apple decided to cut production of the iPhone 14 Plus just two weeks after the big screen phone went on sale. This is according to the information, citing sources. It comes after earlier reports that tech giant Dow Jones was limiting iPhone 14 production in general. However, the 14 Plus wasn’t seen as a big seller, with investors focusing more on the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro versions.

The iPhone Plus report came as Apple unveiled new iPads.

Apple earnings are due on October 27.

Apple shares rose 0.9 percent to 143.75 on Tuesday. However, shares are up 3.1% on the day, breaking the 21-day streak.

Netflix subscribers

Netflix earnings beat estimates as subscribers increased by 2.41 million versus analyst views of nearly 1 million. The tech giant saw a 4.5 million subscriber increase in the fourth quarter. On November 3, the streaming giant will launch an ad-supported category for $6.99 per month. Netflix is ​​also ramping up its efforts to crack down on password sharing in hopes of boosting subscribers.

But the days of easy subscriber growth are long gone. It’s a tough and expensive battle just to hold on to existing customers, with Disney+, Apple+, HBO Max, Paramount+ and many more fighting for viewers’ eyeballs and wallets.

NFLX stock rose 14% to about 274 in extended trade. Shares fell 1.7 percent to 240.86 on Tuesday, after climbing 6.7 percent on Monday. Netflix stock has 252.09 buying points from a bottom base, according to MarketSmith analysis. It should cross that level easily, but could test the 200 day long slip line.

Disney’s stock jumped modestly overnight. DIS stock rose 1.2% on Tuesday, below the 50-day and 200-day lines.

Roku’s stock rose strongly in an extended movement. Shares have collapsed since hitting a record high of 490.76 in July 2021, but jumped 1.3% on Tuesday.

Tesla earnings

Tesla earnings are due late Wednesday. Analysts expect Tesla’s profit to jump 76% from the previous year, with revenue rising strongly.

But demand concerns are growing amid rising production and declining backlogs. So investors will be excited to comment on Tesla’s deliveries in the fourth quarter and next year.

Tesla stock rose 0.4% to 200.19 Tuesday after rising to 229.75 in the morning. Tesla stock hit a 15-month low on Friday.

CEO Elon Musk may have more reason to be bullish on Wednesday night’s earnings call. Assuming the Twitter deal closes, possibly by October 28, Musk may need to sell additional Tesla shares in the coming days to help pay for the $44 billion acquisition. Some estimates suggest that Musk may need to sell another $8 billion of TWTR stock.

Bloomberg reported that Twitter closed employee stock accounts Tuesday “in anticipation” of a deal. Twitter stock rose just over 2% to 51.78.
