Is $AAPL stock a buy?

Currently, Apple stock matches one trading strategy:

ATH buy setup

All-time Highs is always an excellent buy point for those who like to buy high and sell higher. The good point of buying at all-time highs is that shares price doesn't struggle with upper resistances, and usually it rises fast. However, there's the risk of a bulls trap that may trigger your buy order and then falls sharply. That's why a stop loss is so important. Apple can break to ATH any time soon, as it only needs to rise a 3.46%. The buy point is at $150.00 if you want to trade with this strategy. The stop loss would be placed at $135.00
