Here’s Why Apple, Tesla, and Three Other Stocks Are Trending

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is trending after Bloomberg reported that India isn’t necessarily inclined to grant generous concessions such as softening local sourcing regulations to Apple so that the company can produce iPhones in the country. With President-elect Trump asking Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) to bring more manufacturing back home and Chinese wages steadily trending higher, Apple’s iPhone labor manufacturing costs could increase if the company does not find adequate adjusting mechanisms. Given that the labor for assembling the iPhone is just a small fraction of the total bill, Apple’s gross margins won’t be too affected though. Ken Fisher’s Fisher Asset Management owned more than 11.3 million shares at the end of September.

Wrapping our coverage of trending stocks is Shake Shack Inc (NYSE:SHAK), whose shares climbed 4.48% in extended market trading on the news that it will replace Chemours in the S&P 600 index.
