  1. Apple is a great buy, but there are currently too many worries about the US housing market, personal debt levels- everywhere, too much debt funding the record M&A activity etc etc. Also not helped by locos saying there are ‘new paradigms’ at work that will keep everything going. The last time that happened was 2001…

  2. This is the bargain of the year. Take your position now and reap gains after tax time. I don’t see anything but blue skies for Apple considering the depth and breadth of products. Ask yourself where will the competition be next year–wishing they had something viable to compete with.
