    1. The only “bubble” I see in the current market valuations of tech stocks is that of MSFT. Come on: $30.20 per share? PUH-LEEZE. Let’s get back to that 10 year average, BallmerBoy: 26.00 or thereabouts is perfect for a company that has lost almost half (yes, HALF) of its market cap under MoneyBoy’s leadership!

      Can you spell “LOSER”?

    1. Still do not understand why the stock is so low. Apple is really the square peg in the NASDAQ/Wall Street round hole.
      So many people still think it is a small competitor to WinTel.
      Anyway, the day Apple will start paying dividends, more investors will wake up and notice.

      1. It’s simply a matter of Apple being an oddity. A 30-year old fortune 500 company should have long ago lost its ability to grow at the pace Apple has, and settled into single digit YOY gains. That Apple is so old and is just now making these gains is something people can’t wrap their heads around.

        And I dont think you’ll see dividends any time soon. Paying a dividend is typically for slow growth companies like P&G or Johnson and Johnson. They can’t gain investors via large growth gains but they can through paying dividends.

        Beginning a dividend now for Apple could signal to the market that they fear their large growth days are coming to an end, and that in itself could cause the stock to retreat significantly. I speculate it will be years before Apple considers a dividend.

      2. It’s (partly) because people (whether they are “pros” or joe-investor) can’t stand being wrong. The people who were “right” bought Apple when it was $14 (split-adjusted) and again when it dropped back below $100 (in 2009 just three years ago). Everyone else was wrong about the potential for AAPL, and don’t want to admit “missing the boat.” They had TWO really great chances. Buying AAPL at this point would be the ultimate admission of being the fool who buys high and sells low. They can’t see that buying even now, is probably still buying low.

        FYI – I did not buy AAPL at $14, but it did at about $35 (split-adjusted), and again when it dropped back below $100. My “wrong” was that I didn’t buy enough (not nearly enough); I could have bought a lot more, especially that first time…

        Ultimately, AAPL will reach its merited value. But right now, one quarter of its share price is pure cash. Apple’s cash is worth more than the entire company was worth just three years ago. That’s amazing.

  1. At this pace Apple will double M$ soon.
    M$ is till a very profitable company, but Apple is certainly more driven tech company.
    A just reward for innovation and risk taking.
