Georges Yared: ‘This is the time to accumulate shares of Apple, Inc.’

Georges Yared writes for Blogging Stocks, “Apple, Inc. closed Friday at $84.83; quietly the stock has been trading with just decent volume and some pundits are wondering what is going on?”

“What’s going on is investors and analysts don’t see near term catalysts on the horizon, and of course, the first calender quarter, second fiscal quarter, ending March 31st, tends to be Apple’s quietest. After all how do you top 21 million iPod sales from the December quarter? You don’t. You wait for the next December quarter for that milestone to be eclipsed,” Yared writes.

Yared writes, “But what investors will begin to focus on by May is the launch of the iPhone. When the iPhone is finally available, consumers will line-up for it and begin the new phenomenon. The I can’t -wait-to-get-it crowd will be singing its praises and be showing it off to anyone who has a pulse. The iPhone will be a monster success.”

Yared writes, “For investors who do not own Apple, your opportunity is here… This is the time to accumulate shares of Apple, Inc.”

  1. I recently gave a friend an impassioned delivery about Apple matters in 2007 and she bought 50 shares of Apple stock and in a recent email said she wouldn’t hold it against me if the stock did poorly.

    I assured her it was the best investment she ever made.

  2. G4Dualie,

    Remind your friend that stock prices fluxuate based on “perception” and psychology, very often not intelligently linked to the performance of a company.

    At the very least tell her not to watch the price of the stock go up and down on a day to day basis. Show her how Apple’s stock has performed on a 3 month, 1 year, 3 year and 5 year basis. And make sure she knows to expect dips as well as rises.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’d recommend investing in Apple too, but not for people expecting to make a quick buck, it’s an investment stock that you hold for years. The market is too irrational to make day to day money, unless you have inside information, have a lot of money to burn, or are very lucky.

  3. Since 1999…my Apple shares have increased almost 2000% and split twice! ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

    Better than 10% return on your average RRSP!

  4. It’s not just the iPhone.

    Leopard is coming out, along with iLife’07 & iWork’07.

    Leopard sells at least 1M copies during first quarter, iWork and iLife 0,5M. (both numbers are made up [hey, this is a rumor site]).
    That would be roughly 290M $ USD.

    Then there are 15,4″MB and sub-notebook MBP. If they exist that’s lot more cash.

    And what if there will be iPhone nano for Christmas. Or maybe it’s for MacMas (MacWorld).

    Those cash registers will wear out.

  5. I’ve been wanting a slice of Apple pie for years, but I live in Australia and don’t think it is as straight forward to invest in a foreign company (exchange rates etc). Does anyone know where I can buy some Apple stock in Australia? A good stock or etrade site I can go?
