  1. Up $200 since Thanksgiving when it bottomed out after that quarter’s analyst overestimates. That has to be just about the easiest $200 in 3 and a half months. I hope everyone made a lot of money.

    1. Right back at ya Ken. It’s just that I would have felt more comfortable if the run up had been spread out over a few more months instead of all at once. BTW, do you use stop loss orders?

      1. Stop loss orders on apple is a fool’s errand. Nothing like black box trading triggering them all the way down just to buy it all back up- while you’re left to wonder wtf happened.

    2. I almost feel sorry for those investors that followed some analyst’s advice to sell their Apple stock before the iPad announcement and then buy on the pullback that never happened. It just seems too risky to try to play Apple on a day to day basis.

      Every day that Apple shares rise, there’s some financial genius saying that that’s the day to sell Apple shares because Apple is rising too far, too fast and is ripe for a pullback. So far, it’s proven to be terrible advice for Apple investors. I know that on some particular day the advice is bound to be correct, but who knows exactly what day that will happen.

      Apple stock has exceeded all my expectations, so I don’t need to be greedy. I’ll just sell off a few shares or so when I need the money for a specific purpose and be content even if Apple stock is down a bit. I see that Apple is already up over 30% and it’s only a few months into the year, so there’s nothing to cry about. Out of all the stocks in the market, how many companies can make that claim. Apple long since 2004.

  2. Reuters — The S&P 500 closed at a level not seen since June 2008 in a sign that the market foresees more strength in the U.S. economy in coming months… Investors also welcomed a more upbeat assessment of the economy from the Federal Reserve and a solid report on retail sales… Technology stocks were also strong, with shares of Apple (AAPL, Fortune 500) rising to a fresh all-time high on upbeat analysts comments.

  3. There’s a small typo in the pricing. It closed up $16.10, not $16.91, and the price was $568.10 rather than $568.01. I’ve also got $529.7 as the marketcap. Strange, but their numbers on various stocks are sometimes different. Usually the only problem is with Exxon.

    I know it seems small, but I’ve always learned that a penny off could be $10.
