  1. Happy New Year everyone. AAPL has been doing magnificently in the last few months. I think mostly because iPhone 11 was a surprise success and the other product lines are all doing well. Also the naysayers have been very quiet lately.
    It would be great to top $300 but I would expect some downturn at some point. Typically this begins with warning on future performance from an increasing number of so called analysts.
