  1. The question is where will appl top out to? Also what will be the new baseline price. Earlier top was around 320 and bottom around 300.

    My guess is that 360 will be the new high. However we still have over a week to go before earnings call so maybe even 380 is feasible.

    Of course we will all have to brace for the usual profit taking. That will probably take the stock down to 340 if we’re lucky.

  2. Why is MS still #3? After that boring keynote speech, you would think the market would react accordingly. MS had nothing to show but re-hash the same crap. Oh a new Big Ass Table…whoopeeedooo. If it were Apple, the share would drop by a 100 bucks.

    “Should I be buying Exxon?”

    I don’t know, should you invest in the Mob, Robert Mugabe, or Hugo Chavez? How about al-qaeda? Exxon, like all fossil fuel companies, is a criminal cartel that is poisoning the world and risking millions of lives and trillions in economic damage, while running a FUD and cover-up campaign bigger that Big Tobacco ever did to keep that gap growing. You want to own a piece of that? That is between you and the Devil but you couldn’t pay me enough to own that. It’s bad enough to have to keep choking on their deadly crap product without investing in it too.

    One of these days and it won’t be long, people will wake up and those criminals will fall faster than the mortgage guys did. You watch. I wouldn’t want to own their junk then!

  4. @ Fredo, I take it that you walk everywhere, and for good measure don’t use any Petrochemical based products.

    I’m not taking sides here … I’m just asking, how you get around this issue?
