  1. Thanks Microsoft, google and samsung for that..
    With the crappy windows 7 launch, Steve Ballmer selling his shares at microsoft, Samsung and his 7 inches crappy iPad wanna be, and android getting suing for all the technologies they copied from Unix ans other companies.

  2. Apple is still doing well but is no longer the explosive growth stock it used to be. All of it’s impressive sales and financials are getting more and more priced in, and it’s just been keeping pace with the NASDAQ for the past month.

    In my opinion apple is still a safe bet for long term growth but there are better options if you’re more speculative in the near term. I’ve cashed out some of my stake for a nice profit and will hold the rest for several years.

  3. “All of it’s impressive sales and . . .”

    . . . but it’s = it is.** The rest of your post is accurate, but for those of us with average share price of $12.42 since the mid ’80’s, the run up thus far is more than a little astonishing.

    ** NOT rocket science, but something that must be stopped in written communication in this country. “We are NOT animals!”

    You don’t have a clue. When Apple comes in and not only revolutionizes one aspect of one market, but several, like the: Music Industry, MP3 Player Market, the Smart Phone and now it single handedly creates new markets, like the touch screen tablet market. Now see the details, iTunes, the App Store, the iBook store. If you don’t see this as pushing not only one segment, but several at once, then you are ether bias against Apple, or you are dumb as a door knob. Some call it fashion, some call it luck, it’s nether, it’s called hard work and striving for excellence. It’s called innovating and revolutionizing. It’s called vision.

    Apple stock is cheap still.

  5. @good for you
    “its” autocorrects to “it’s” on the iPhone. Try it. Sorry I missed it….


    We all know this as do the people who are investing in Apple. Much of it is priced in. If you’re just making money at the pace of the indexes in an obvious bull market you’re not investing to your full potential. If you can’t see that, you’re biased against making money.

    I’m not at all biased against Apple. As I said before I’m still holding a bunch of shares for long term gains. I merely pointed out that there are so many other better options for quick gains in this type of market. It all depends on your investing style. Nothing wrong with holding apple if you’re content with following the indexes.
