    1. Actually, Mickey is relieved. Apple took his advice and gave the money back to the shareholders (that is even more money than what would have been paid if the company had been shut down in 1997) through the new dividend program. In fact, the dividend program pays out is more than Dell is worth. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Mr. Dell.

      1. wrong. A bubble stock is one that has nothing but air (i.e. irrational exuberance) supporting its unexplained market cap growth. AAPL has some well known fundamentals on its side, and by those, AAPL is still cheap. People talk about limits, when what they are are theoretical or psychological limits. AAPL is applying the first law oh physics, and the force is the awakening of people’s eyes from the dark age of computing

        1. I agree with everything. But its growth curve from December to now is a 45 degree line up. All I’m saying is a more gradual growth, say over six to eight months is much more sustainable than in just two months. A rapid rise can bring rapid falls. And as we all know, Apple is one of the most manipulated stocks there is, ie Goldman from about a month ago when there was a mysterious 25 dollar move.

          1. Yes, but did you look at the earnings curve? The share price has been lagging the earnings curve for several years now. One could just as easily, in fact, one could make a far stronger argument that the share price rise is just regression to the mean.

            There is no mysterious $25 dollar move. Someone sold a large position of over 1M shares. Nothing mysterious.

  1. But, but, but . . . Consumer Reports says that the iPad3 is running at unacceptably high temperatures when held on a heating pad at high noon in a solarium on the equator! How can this record closing figure BE when this esteemed publication has such deeply held reservations about Apple and its latest product? [Again, Sarcasm.]

  2. Suggestion for MDN: announce that from now on, articles about Apple’s stock prices will only be made when the stock price does NOT set an all time record.

  3. Way to go Apple! They should consider buying Adobe and rule the desktop publishing software standard. Innovation would happen at a faster pace and a much lower price point, affordable to main street. They started the process with Final Cut Pro X. Git ‘er done!

  4. Share price is finally catching up to where it should be …. Well actually it is still short by $115 but closer than it was 4 months ago …..

    Apple today would be fairly valued at $720 ….. And at $750 I would sell but that is as of today …..

    By next earnings and who knows what else is coming my numbers will change but TODAY Apple is fairly valued at $720 share ….
