MacDailyNews Note: “I am putting a sell on Apple, the company that created the iPhone,” Laura Goldman, investment advisor, LSG Capital, May 21, 2007. AAPL closed at $111.98 that day. Apple has risen over 66% since Goldman’s “sell” recommendation.


  1. MDN: the listing of companies and Apple’s position with respect to their market cap is excellent! Keep doing it in the future! It just feels great to be bigger than IBM!!

    What’s most impressive in this list is the names of companies below Apple. And most of them weren’t there just about a year ago!

  2. I sold my Apple stock @ $22 before two stock splits ago.

    And I was happy to get $22 too.

    Don’t get me wrong, I am a mac apologist. But at that time, Apple was hovering in the low teens and everybody thought Apple was dead.

    So I am happy for Apple, sad for my loss, but happy for Apple. What I sold for $22 a share is now worth over $752 a share because of two splits. Amazing.

  3. Hey look man, Real and Napster arn’t dead man. Their vitals are real low but they ain’t dead.

    Hey man, I don’t wanna rain on your parade, but Apple isn’t gonna last seventeen hours! Those things from Napster and Real are gonna come in here just like they did before. And they’re gonna come in here…

    …and they’re gonna come in here AND THEY’RE GONNA KILL US!

    Look at this readers comment to here original article.

    Laura Goldman had a series of jobs on Wall Street but was thrown out of the US after a failed blackmail attempt against Thomas H Lee (the last in a long line of similar cases she brought) and she now runs LSG Capital from a seedy 2-room apartment in Tel Aviv. “Insightful”?? Yeah, right!

    Enough said – what fscking a fraud!

  5. Denny,

    Laura may have a lot of “inner beauty” (but I agree that you’d probably have to peel off several layers of tissue to get there).


    “we’re all gonna die!” “hey, the little girl survived for months.” “well, PUT HER IN CHARGE!”
