The SPY represents a broader market of stocks, If it is strong, generally stocks should be going higher, if it is weak, stocks should be going lower. What happens if the SPY is weak, but your stock is not going lower? That is a sign of strength. Obviously there are buyers holding the stock up in the face of a weak market. What happens when that weak market reverses? Your stock should be the first to go to new highs, This can be very useful information for trading stocks intraday.
The concept of is nothing new and it is does not serve as a complete methodology. I enter a trade based on my setup, my validation and my perspective. This concept of adds to my perspective and let's me know that I should be looking to buy a stock that is strong in the face of a weak ,market. The sign of strength of obvious when the SPY was pushing new lows while AAPL refused to push lows.
So when do you enter this stock? And what type of expectation is reasonable as far as profit potential? That will all depend on the parameters defined by your methodology. I used 5 minute charts because I was interested in day trades, and AAPL happen to be hovering around a large time frame Fibonacci level which presented a significant support. Once I saw it failing to push lows in the face of the weak SPY , that was enough information to know to avoid shorts and look for longs.

Do you thinksimilar analysis could be applied in here, in TradingView?
Thanks for the technical help with the chart, I will do that next time I want to compare two charts. About the Bloomberg chart, honestly it's an interesting observation but completely irrelevant to the way I trade.
Remember their job is to attract attention. My job is to objectively identify opportunities and manage risk. If the Industrials are going provide a "buying opportunity" then it needs to be clear and valid on MY charts. And if it's going to be a longer term view such as the one they are presenting, then I would need to see validation on a 4 hour or larger time frame. There is nothing wrong with their idea of buying a dip, the problem is they do not present any specific way to buy it. They just say "It's a dip, should be buy it? It's kinda of scary."
My methodology provides an excellent source of trading ideas, that are objective and in line with what is more natural to the market I am observing. If the possible buying opportunity they are talking about has any validity, my framework will most likely show me something objective and that I can measure risk effectively from. Hope this helps.
