  1. Thursday and Friday loss made up in one day? Amazing. When it closed the week at $599 I meant to pull the string and buy a few more. But I missed it. Where will it stop? This is really fun!!!

    1. It’s lot better then AMZN. just wonder how many times Dell if AAPL is 100 + ?

      If AAPL earn say $55 per share this year and PE is 20 then by end of AAPL’s financial year it should trade $1,100 to $1,500.

  2. I giggle to myself every time I see the market value rankings above.

    However, if I had fallen into a Rip Van Winkle sleep during the dog days of the Spindler reign and just woke up today, I’d be laughing my friggin’ ass off instead! Just unbelievable ….

  3. Not completely sure, but I think AAPL actually moved up 19.08 today (not 19.13), to close at 618.63 (not 618.68). But what’s a nickel among friends? Especially when either number is an all-time high!

  4. I leveraged myself on December 9th and again on December 27th with the thought of picking up some 20-30 points and sell the 1,000 margin-ed shares for a $20-$30K gain and by wife new car ….

    The Auto Show was in February so I figured a little pop around earnings and sell for a quick profit ….

    Well that was some 225 points ago and I still owe the margin monies …. I am in shock as I was my weekly gains buy a new car, if I sold …. but I’m holding on – No matter how tough it was to see $20K evaporate I figured it was not healthy for the stock to go up day after day ….

    Today, I got it all back and then some ……

    Leased wife a new car so no cash needed and I figure now the lease is paid for itself some 20 times over …. and I’m still holding on, watching the margin interest add-up but watching my gains skyrocket, BIG TIME …..

    Thank you Apple ….

    Rest in Peace, Steve, We Love You!

  5. Closing in on GE’s historical high of 581 billion. Once met, that would leave Microsoft as the only company to ever have a market cap higher than Apple.

  6. Apple need to spend some of that billions on cash to do this. Every time the stocks go up and has a multiplier against DELL giant lasers in space will spit out WHAT DID YOU SAY AGAIN MR. DELL? so that everyone on the planet can see it all at the same time!
