MacDailyNews Take: Reach up, Apple shareholders, and touch the stratosphere!


  1. The President must be impeached. Letting Apple bring all that money from outside the US back home, lowering tax rates, reducing excessive regulations, promoting domestic energy production lowering the cost of energy dramatically – these awful ideas are destroying Apple, its investors and everyone in the country. We need a President who raise taxes through the roof, who will end all energy except windmills, who will force businesses to give their products away, who will provide free healthcare and free education and free NFLPass to everyone. Finally, we need a President who will do whatever is required to get all of Joe Biden’s family employed at a decent wage. At least a mill a year. And throw in some good looking hookers. Trump must be impeached.

    1. Nope, gonna ignore you and keep politics out of this thread. Wander away and spew your “clever” sarcasm elsewhere. In this thread, we celebrate the rise of AAPL, and we all know it has to do with many, many factors far beyond the antics of the current occupant of the White House. $13 away from doubling its low? Seems possible, given the rapid string of “all-time” highs since October 11. Today’s all-time closing high is the 17th since then. Only 16 trading days left before the new year.

      1. You are right. We need the innovative Ivy League thinking that brought us Cash For Clunkers and Solyndra and “you can’t drill your way out of an oil shortage”. Brilliance. And he had such a nice crease in his pants.

      2. “In this thread, we celebrate the rise of AAPL, and we all know it has to do with many, many factors far beyond…”

        What factors? Like President Obama had something to with it, perhaps? Ha!

        The main “factor”: The articulate media darling and liberal pinhead with PC teaching moment lectures pandering to his base, while scolding half of U.S. citizens is gone, and the worst presidential Democrat candidate was not elected. Obama had zero business experience, never created a job in his life and worked as a community organizer in a 501C. Day after day we were treated to the tired Democrat memes the rich are too rich and don’t pay enough taxes. What a great recipe for confidence and economic growth!

        The hope and change factor: Voting in a change agent disruptor businessman with zero Washington swamp experience to bring America back from the brink of Democrat malaise.

        As Kent pointed out in reverse detail the policies and confidence business has in President Trump has shattered economic records and yes, he has made America Great Again.

        As we celebrate the rise of Apple, do not forget Catalinaman your party had little to do with it. The refreshing partnership of Cook and Trump policies and confidence is what is needed to move forward…

      1. Come on liberals! Why so few down votes on Kent’s post? Show your team stupidity and downvote Kent! The economy is TOO good, we MUST impeach!!
        Go Team stupid, GO!

  2. Sweet. Apple has surpassed all my expectations as an investment and I have absolutely no regrets of owning Apple stock since 2004 or buying Apple products since 1984. I’d be satisfied if Apple just keeps raising its dividend a decent amount every year. It’s really provided a nice yearly income for me as a senior citizen.

      1. Some of us aren’t so stupidly biased that we couldn’t see Apple’s success coming. I certainly saw it coming and loaded up on Apple stock more than a decade ago. I am sitting pretty, let me tell you.
