Apple shares hit new all-time intraday and closing highs – August 8, 2017


  1. MDN, you should include the annual profits from the previous year and/or the trailing P/E in parentheses next to the market capitalization figures in your list. Either or both of those pieces of information would be instructive.

    After all, the current “value” of the company based on the traded stock is one

  2. Today was Ex-dividend. This means anyone who bought today will receive $0.63/share on August 14- anyone who sold today will not receive the dividend. The price should drop tomorrow by $0.63 to reflect this…

  3. There will be those analysts who will fight tooth and nail to let everyone know how Apple is living on borrowed time. All those ‘genius’ jackasses who tell mom and pop investors they should sell their Apple stock to buy some other stock with ‘more potential’. Those analysts disgust me. I read some article today from a chart analyzer saying how Apple stock looked ‘exhausted’. What the heck does something like that even mean? Apple isn’t a living thing. There’s no flesh, blood, bone or muscle to get ‘exhausted’.

    These people who claim to be financial experts are nothing but con artists who I believe actually enjoy seeing people lose money using their bad advice. All these people who keep telling investors to avoid buying Apple as Apple’s share price climbs higher are either crooks or knuckleheads. Don’t they even see or care how wrong they are? Why don’t they just keep their mouths shut if they don’t know what they’re talking about?

    1. I always assume that the ‘mom and pop’ investors aren’t the ones directly reacting to reports by analysts. The analysts are more influential for the professional speculators ( fund managers etc ) and journalists – neither of whom have a track record for being particularly astute and who rapidly change direction en masse, always going where the herd is pointing at that instant. However there is no denying that the mom and pop investors are influenced to a limited extent by the general sentiment created over time by analysts and amplified by the media.
