  1. In 1997 or so, I learned steve was coming back.

    I sold a very nice mesa/boogie mk iv with a 412 cab to raise money to buy (at 5.50 split adjusted)

    In the time it took to sell and collect the money, my ex had spent it out from under me. So it paid our mortgage instead.

    It would today be worth $56,000.

    ex, I said…

  2. I will not be surprised if Microsofts earnings are below expectations and the gap narrows. There has been a serious slow down in the PC market (not including Apple obviously) in anticipation of Win 7 (although it seems many just didn’t bother waiting and avoided the frustration altogether and moved to a Mac.

  3. Several years ago the whole brain dead investment universe was insisting Apple was going out of business, even though they made money most quarters, had a large pile of cash and no debt. They made better products than their competitors and were unveiling brilliant new things. My broker said don’t touch AAPL, msft at 100 was the smart buy. I fired the broker. My AAPL basis is 7.91.

  4. Yes, but the dollar is worth 25% less than two years ago, so I would not be celebrating too much.

    The whole stock market being at 10,000 is not really true. You have to discount it by the 25% if you live in the real world. Many live in fantasyland, always have, and always will.

    Having said that; relatively speaking; Great Job, Apple. I do mean that. Providing value for the dollar (such as it is) is always better than the alternative.

  5. In for the long term at $72. Could have sold the last time it was at $200 but hung on even though it went to $70 again.

    I’m sure the stock will take another dive when the brokers decide to cash in. But overall aapl will continue to rise.

  6. Yeah, wish I had held on to all my shares, still have 50 though at a 141 pp, so doing good.

    Lesson learned, if you have faith in a company, stick it out.

    I have to tell myself that with vmware and caterpillar, lol.
