  1. Apple stock is a joke! It goes down when it should go up, it goes up when it should go down.. it was 149 the other day now its down to 146? Nothing changed ! No earnings change,, no knew products.. its being used as a casino by the large investors.. I will start using it as a casino too.. when it looks high I will sell.. wait a day or two and then buy in again 3 dollars lower and wait for it go up again.. then sell and repeat.. Apple needs to deal with this volatility.. look at Amazons price and Googles price and Microsofts price.. Apple is a joke at 146 a share.. thats why it is being used as casino..

    1. What can Apple do about that? Apple can’t really be blamed. As a retail investor, you should take advantage of this game the big investors play. You know Apple is worth more than it is, so each time the big investors take the stock down, you could buy some shares on the dip. Apple stock isn’t going to stay down. Also, with Apple buying back shares, they can also take advantage of buying back shares on those dips. I do feel a game is being played with Apple stock but that’s how it’s been for years. It hasn’t really hurt me as a long-term investor. Apple stock is still rising and the company is still strong. Those Apple gamblers can’t be stopped because they enjoy the game so much. Stocks go up and stocks go down and there are those who make money from the constant churn. I believe Apple will finish the year at around $180, so I have no worries, whatsoever.
