Absent broader context, consumer technology giant Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) appears like a no-lose proposition. Despite some bearish calls that the Apple stock price is stretched - including my own two cents - shares have continued to defy gravity and the critics. On a year-to-date basis, AAPL is up over 50%.Source: Shutterstock Again, by any other standard, this should drive enthusiasm toward AAPL stock. Although neither our domestic nor the global economies suggest much to look forward to, Apple is defying the odds. Like the bullish case for Nike (NYSE:NKE), the company enjoys almost unprecedented, deep-seated popularity with their worldwide consumer base.Thus, even with the ugliness over the U.S.-China trade war, the Apple stock price may enjoy a reprieve. Despite pressures on the global consumer, the Apple brand has a powerful social cachet: people will sacrifice to get the latest smart device iteration from Cupertino.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Super Boring Stocks to Buy With Super Safe Returns Moreover, Apple is delivering the goods. Last month, the company unveiled its latest flagship portable product, the iPhone 11 Pro. One of the most heavily marketed features of the 11 is its three lenses. Featuring wide, ultra wide and telephoto angles, this groundbreaking innovation amplifies the usability of the now-ubiquitous integrated camera.Given selfie culture and the popularity of video platforms like Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) YouTube, Apple finally did something to push the envelope. Theoretically, this should help lift AAPL stock.Further, the tech firm is getting into the streaming game with Apple TV+. Launching with an introductory price of only $4.99 a month, it undercuts every other streaming competitor, including the big shots Disney (NYSE:DIS) and Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX).Are these factors reason enough to buy Apple stock? It depends on your perspective. Comprehensive Headwinds Overwhelm Apple StockLet me begin with a quick aside. Like many sports fans, I've been fascinated with the Rugby World Cup, which is held in Japan for this edition. However, incoming Typhoon Hagibis forced a match cancellation, a first in World Cup history. Hagibis also threatens at least part of the Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix, which is held this weekend.Prior to the match cancellation, debate erupted over how the organizers should respond to the inclement weather. And in some ways, I see a parallel with Hagibis and AAPL stock. Yes, Apple has many things going for them, and they've also proven doubters wrong.However, this victory could be short lived. As with the World Cup, a storm threatens Apple stock.Of course, I'm referring to an economic storm. While Apple products have historically performed well because folks apparently couldn't get enough of the "i-this and i-that," even these device fanatics have their financial breaking point. Given the discrepancies in per-capita spending power between the average American and Chinese consumer, the latter may face more difficulties.In an email correspondence, Victor Shih, Ph.D., associate professor of political economy at the University of California, San Diego, wrote:Both the trade war and food-driven inflation likely will crimp Chinese consumers' discretionary spending. While the trade war has slowed employment growth and wage growth, the African swine flu has driven up food prices substantially. For the average households, they are trapped between much higher food prices and uncertainties about future income. This will limit their spending on discretionary items.Put another way, AAPL stock may be on a winning path right now. But that's not guaranteed to sustain. As known pressures tighten their stranglehold, the impact will invariably filter down. How to Tackle AAPL StockAs I mentioned earlier, how you approach Apple stock depends on your perspective. To clarify, if you have a short-term timeline, AAPL could bring some quick profits. But for everyone else, I encourage you to consider some storm-watching. The headwinds working against this tech firm are unquestionably ugly.Furthermore, in years past, Apple, along with many other organizations, relied heavily on the Chinese consumer. With a population size four-times greater than the U.S., this approach made sense.But at the present juncture, China is a major risk factor. As Professor Shih noted, the average Chinese consumer is feeling the heat. Given the choice of buying food to live or buying an iPhone 11, I don't have to spell out the correct answer. Therefore, anybody who is not a day trader should probably avoid or cash out of AAPL stock.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Worried that you missed out on critical personal finance education growing up? Don't worry, Matt McCall has you covered. In this episode of his "MoneyLine" podcast, he sits down with InvestorPlace producer Dave Maxwell -- a self-professed average young man -- to discuss the basics.Many young people, Maxwell included, feel intimidated when it comes to saving for retirement. McCall doesn't blame them, but that doesn't mean he's giving young folks a free pass. Instead, he talks with Maxwell to learn just why retirement is so scary -- and often unapproachable.The two agree that it's often hard to visualize long-term goals, which makes it even harder to save for them. If you can't imagine exactly how much money you'll need when you're 65, how will you feel inspired to cut down on your subscriptions from Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) or Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL)? But if you want to save $1 million for retirement (the often-cited amount to aim for), there's no time like the present.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Super Boring Stocks to Buy With Super Safe Returns Still having a hard time visualizing the future? In that case, here's some of McCall's quick math. If three working adults each save $120,000 for retirement, but they start at ages 25, 35 and 45, respectively, their retirement savings accounts will look much different at age 65. In his example, the man who started saving at 25 ended up with over $1.4 million by the time he was ready to retire. On the other hand, the man who waited until 45 only had $300,000. McCall's Podcast on Saving for RetirementOK, so you already know that you need to start saving young. What if the real problem is that you have a limited amount of disposable income? McCall totally relates. In this episode of "MoneyLine" he discusses how he, too, is struck by the finer things in life. And who doesn't love stopping by Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) in the morning for a quick latte?Well, split-second spending decisions can make a difference. To start, McCall recommends saving an extra $100 every week. For many young workers, this may mean cutting back on happy hour drinks, morning coffee or online shopping. But it can also mean paying closer attention to your monthly budget.For example, McCall said he -- along with many other Americans -- made the decision to cut the cord with cable. However, his cost-cutting exercise resulted in over $100 a month in new subscription services from Netflix and Apple, and he's still planning on jumping on Disney's (NYSE:DIS) Disney+ bandwagon. When saving for retirement, it's critical that young adults pay attention to their monthly expenses, whether that be eating out, video streaming services or Spotify's (NYSE:SPOT) Premium plan. Cutting back on everyday costs can go a long way in helping save more for the future.Oh, and if you have an employer-matched 401k plan like Maxwell and McCall, you better be maxing it out. For 2019, you can contribute $19,000 to your 401k -- and that will really add up as you approach your golden years.Listen in to this episode of "MoneyLine" for more information on saving for retirement (but most importantly, without fear).Matthew McCall left Wall Street to actually help investors -- by getting them into the world's biggest, most revolutionary trends BEFORE anyone else. The power of being "first" gave Matt's readers the chance to bank +2,438% in Stamps.com (STMP), +1,523% in Ulta Beauty (ULTA) and +1,044% in Tesla (TSLA), just to name a few.

Wall Street is breathing easier today. But given that it is October and the art of deal-making is far from certain these days, investors can tread more confidently if they choose income-generating, blue-chip stocks that are well-positioned for winning the trade war. Let me explain.The Dow Jones Industrial Average is nearly through the first half of October -- a month notorious for spooking investors -- and so far a market correction still hasn't happened. That's not to say the period hasn't been without incident or that a correction won't make an appearance this year. The fact is elevated volatility, back-and-forth political intrigue and mixed economic data offering jeers and cheers have been a staple on Wall Street this month. Nevertheless, a pullback which saw blue-chip stocks lose as much as 4.25% in early October has been completely retraced as of Friday's intraday trade.So, where exactly does that leave investors, other than a flat October, which may feel like a victory?InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsGiven that deal-making hasn't been a proven hallmark of U.S. President Donald Trump, I'm not holding my breath that today's market optimism for a partial trade deal with China won't be derailed by a tweet or temper tantrum. Of course, something else out of left field or maybe the continued saga of Donald and the Giant Impeach could always find Wall Street pulling up its bootstraps and getting defensive again. * 7 Beverage Stocks to Buy Now With all of that said, I'm recommending investors stick with blue-chip stocks. Risk-assets of this caliber have prevailed over bear markets, weathered all sorts of political theater and will pay investors for their patience. And right now three of these names also enjoy negotiating power for bulls on the price charts. Blue-Chip Stocks to Buy: Disney (DIS)Disney (NYSE:DIS) is the first of the blue-chip stocks to buy. The diversified entertainment giant hit all-time-highs in late July fueled by a breakout from a near three-year long triangle pattern.Shares of this blue-chip pay investors a below-market dividend of 1.36%. That's nothing to write home about, but it's a little something for your time. Moreover, DIS stock offers investors nice prospects for continued growth. And my guess is Disney's deeper move into the streaming market with Disney+ later this year and against the likes of Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), will prove to be the company's newest stock booster.With an oversold DIS stock pulling back to test its 40-week simple moving average, lower Bollinger Band and 50% retracement level in an inside doji bottoming pattern, this blue-chip stock is nearly ready to buy.DIS Stock Strategy: My advice is to buy DIS stock on confirmation of the two-week candlestick bottoming pattern as shares trade through $131.78. I'd give this blue-chip stock a bit of wiggle room, but if shares fall below $126.50, exiting the position and keeping the powder dry for stronger opportunities makes sense. Cisco Systems (CSCO)Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) is the next of our blue-chip stocks to buy. And you can thank Goldman Sachs for putting CSCO stock into a better position for buying. On Thursday, the investment firm warned Cisco's enterprise revenues will weaken while its telecom spending will remain at depressed levels. Investors reacted by sending shares down 1.47%.The combination in CSCO stock I'm looking at is much more upbeat. Today's buyers can get into this blue-chip as it offers a 3% yield backed by price action that's setting up a corrective double-bottom inside a very strong technical support zone. * 10 Winning Stocks to Buy and Stick With for the Long Haul CSCO Stock Strategy: My advice in this blue-chip stock is to buy shares next week if the hammer candlestick is confirmed above $48.13. All chips are off the table if the pattern fails and investors would be smart to exit or risk a much larger correction toward possibly $40 a share. AT&T (T)Not that I've saved the best for last, but AT&T (NYSE:T) is a blue-chip stock whose attractive income stream of 5.50%, relative strength and pattern on the price chart make it ripe for buying.Shares are in position to stage a breakout from a tight multi-week consolidation that has found support from prior highs and above T stock's cup-shaped base of nearly 2.5-years. Bullish investors might also see the current pattern as a "high" handle formation. Either way, the price action bodes well for a continued rally into 2020.T Stock Strategy: The plan for buying this blue-chip stock is simple. Wait for T stock to trade above resistance and purchase shares through $38.22. And respect the pattern low for exiting if needed, as an even larger yield may not be worth the trouble.Disclosure: Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management do not currently own positions in securities mentioned in this article.
