On Tuesday, Apple unveiled its latest iPhone. And the event can be summed up into just four words:
5G just got real.
Apple’s iPhone 12 will offer 5G coverage, and its Pro model will have the broadest 5G coverage available worldwide, making it one of the speediest smartphones on the market.
But Apple shared more than just 5G on Tuesday.
Over the course of the one-hour-and-10-minute event, the tech giant showcased 11 new product features – each of which resulted in a different reaction from the stock.
See, with a $2 trillion market cap, Apple is the largest company in the U.S. And after Tuesday’s event, it’s clear that title comes with a plethora of profit opportunities…
One of which is a long-term pattern with the potential to triple your money.
Here’s how you can play Apple’s new iPhone 12 release – and turn that pattern into a 233% gain…
How to Triple Your Money on 5G – The Technology of the Future
For 5G to be considered “real,” you need two things:
First, you need a 5G Network. That means providers like Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ), AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T), and T-Mobile U.S. Inc. (NASDAQ: TMUS).
Second, you need a phone capable of connecting to the 5G network. And that’s where Apple comes in.
The new iPhone 12 is about to be Apple’s very first 5G-capable phone. CEO Tim Cook even introduced Hans Vestberg, CEO of Verizon – the leader in 5G coverage – to put his fingerprints on the promise.
But 5G wasn’t the only iPhone 12 feature worth talking about. The new phone will also be faster, thinner, smaller, lighter, have an improved camera, a new edge-to-edge display, and a ceramic shield to help prevent damage. Plus, Apple introduced a smaller version of its Homepod called, believe it or not, the Homepod Mini.
In the chart below, you can see how traders reacted to each of these feature releases during the 70-minute launch:
Clearly, investors are most excited about the 5G-enabled iPhone 12. And it makes sense – 5G is the future. We’ve said it before
, and we’ll say it again. And it appears that Apple is at the forefront of the future.
See, Apple has held product launch events like Tuesday’s since the company was founded in the late ’70s. And, like I do with any regular event, I decided to search for a pattern.
Here’s what I found. Let’s look at the past 10 years of Apple product launch events:
Now, looking at this monthly Apple chart, there’s only one clear pattern. And it’s not that Apple goes up or down after these events. In fact, buying before and/or buying after and selling a month or two later is essentially a wash.
Instead, only one thing is abundantly clear in the above chart. These product launch events are everywhere on Apple’s rise to the largest U.S. company at a $2 trillion market cap.
So, here’s the pattern: Apple goes up over the long-term, and these product events are a major catalyst. That means Apple’s future is only going one direction: up. And to play that future, you should take a look at long-term call options.
Apple, however, is a pretty expensive stock. As I type, it’s sitting at over $120 per share. And typically, with an expensive stock comes expensive options. To reduce your cost, I’d suggest using a long call spread, or as I like to call it, a bullish loophole trade, like the one below:
Together, this bull call spread will cost you just $6.00, or $600 for control over 100 shares.
Plus, it’ll give you the opportunity to make $1,400 (233% ROI) between now and January 2022 on a stock that is likely to continue its bull run into the future.
That’s a 233% return-on-investment (ROI)!
