Apple (AAPL) had a nice day today, closing up $5.32 to $203.08. The stock had a strong earnings report after the close, and it closed the after-hours session up another $1.52 to $204.60. While this is a small gain for Apple compared to what it does sometimes after earnings reports, it is a significant gain because it has put the stock back above its 50-day moving average. With the speculated release of its tablet coming on Wednesday along with lots of other non-stock related events going on in the market right now, Apple can use as many positive technical forces as it can get.
