    1. Where are all those shorts from a year or so ago trumpeting Apple’s doom? Where’s GM (the then frequent commenter here) and all of his oh-so sophisticated and professional investor friends? Licking their wounds, perhaps? Buy and hold was such a stupid strategy according to them. We should all have sold out at $700 in September of 2012. To paraphrase Dr. Phil (whole stole it from Fritz Perls), how’s that working for you now?
