  • Bullish Cross Initiates Fourth-Ever Buy Rating on Apple [View article]
    Just an FYI, here's how perfectly we've been calling Apple's moves at Bullish Cross. Two Sunday's ago, I laid out something called the October game-plan for Apple.

    http://bit.ly/q3mVCH/

    I explained how the stock would see a capitulation bottom on the iPhone 4S event as Apple was going to sell-off and sell-off hard. I noted that we would see a low near the $350 - $360 area and that from there, the stock would bottom and go on a run to $430 for a second time.

    We covered our NASDAQ-100 short position at a 300% gain which we took when Apple was at $422.00 a share.

    We bought our NASDAQ-100 QQQ $54.00 puts at $0.99 a contract on September 19, 2011 and sold that position on the iPhone 4S event at $4.05 a contract. That completely hedged all of our Apple positions so that we didn't lose a solitary dime. In fact, we made money overall on the hedge.

    We then took that capital and bought the $370 - $380 October spread at $5.00 a contract. We also bought the 2013 $450 calls at $41.05 that day. We sold the October $370 - $380 spread last week for a 70% gain and our 2013 $450 calls are up 45% in a week.

    We also bought a ton of other positions -- all deeply in the green. For example, we not only called capitulation on Apple, but on the whole market. We took a massive position in the SPY at $107.90 a share.

    We explained on the iPhone 4S day itself that Apple would be trading in this current range ahead of earnings. In fact, we said Apple would likely trade up to $400 by last week. So when Apple was at $355, we argued that the stock would be in the $400's 7-days later.

    We published an article at Seeking Alpha entitled "Apple is at the precipice of a major move higher" when Apple was exactly at $370.00 a share. 2-days later it was trading at $392 before retesting the upper trend-line of its symmetrical triangle and then breaking out to $423.00 a share on September 19/20.

    In this article we said the stock would run to the $420 - $430 range ahead of its earnings results in October when Apple was at $370.

    We also called the top in Apple when it hit $422 back in September, shorted the NASDAQ and made 300% on the way down and then got super long Apple at $355 ahead of this move up. This was witnessed by 400 people.

    Notice the 196 positive comments on our analysis and handling of the iPhone 4S event.

    We have also just released our analysis of what to expect in October. Notice we've nailed pretty much every move since June flawlessly.

    mich -- I will but in very limited fashion. Maybe once a month if that. I run my own newsletter now. That's mostly why. I'm really focused on that.

    Denny -- Take a look at Bullish Cross. We've nailed pretty much every single short and intermediate-term move in Apple since June. Pretty much every move. Take a look at this post right here. Look at the comments so you can see how we work:

    http://bit.ly/rmyq1o/

    Read the comments. It should give you a sense of how people feel about Bullish Cross. We don't really need more subs. We're actually getting close to a cap. But I get the felling that you would probably like it. That's why I'm posting it for you.

    What in the hell are you talking about man. I got the move entirely right. Here's exactly quoted from the article to which you are referring:

    "As you can see from the charts below, the top of the symmetrical triangle sits at $404.50 while the bottom of end of the pattern is around the $344.50 level. This indicates a 60-point short-term move from the $375 - $378 level. It would put Apple in and around $430 a share." Apple went up $53.00.

    Also notice the IN AND AROUND $430 a share. IN AND AROUND. IN AND AROUND. IN AND AROUND. IN AND AROUND. Did I say we will exactly $430 on the penny? We were giving a round estimate.

    Notice this quote in the article:

    "At the current moment, an enormous symmetrical triangle is forming on Apple's 60-minute chart. This indicates an immediate move up to the $430 level on a short-term basis on a breakout."

    When we published this article Apple was sitting at $370 a share. Look at the date of the article:

    August 26, 2011:
    Apple opened at $371.17. We went super long that day. Go look at our tweets.

    Now notice this quote:
    "Apple (AAPL) is no more than one or two days away from kicking-off a massive move of epic proportions." That's from August 26, 2011.

    On August 30, 2011 -- two trading sessions later -- Apple closed up $20.00 from when we published the article at $390.00 a share.

    Then it saw a retest of the lower trend-line, and then it was at $422.86 10 trading sessions later. So what in the fucking hell are you talking about?

    After we published the article, the stock immediate broke-out of the symmetrical triangle, and hit $392 a share. Then it retested the upper trend-line of the breakout point -- which we actually said would happen in part 2 to the article -- and then after testing the upper trend-line on a short-term pull-back, the stock rose to $423 a share.

    Are you kidding me? So how exactly is this a straight-line down? We said it would breakout and meet a target. Both happened. That doesn't mean the stock is going to just sit up there without a pull-back.

    Only an imbecile of the highest order would think that a stock doesn't see pull-backs.

    There has got to be a way to simply prevent the postings of a completely insane person. I don't understand what Seeking Alpha's deal is. Posts like these just make me want to remain entirely private.

    I throw people a bone and some people just want to act like a child.

    We actually did short when Apple was at $420. So you should probably get your facts straight. Also, when we posted this, Apple was at $315.00 a share. It's now at $370.00.

    You need to stop acting like a child. I notice all you do is post emotionally charged comments and have read just about 2% of what we post. Yes. We shorted the QQQ when Apple was at $422.00 and pulled off a 320% gain on it.

    You can confirm that with the 450 extremely happy subscribers we have.

    Also, when we posted that Apple was at the precipice of a breakout, it was trading at $370. It went up $53.00 after we published that article.

    The stock fell short $7.00 of our target of $430 -- which we said was an estimate based on a measured move.

    So in fact, we got that breakout right. It's not our fault that you're an imbecile and can't follow your own trades. Stop following our articles if you're going to just act like a child.

    Bullish Cross is up 135.2% from a portfolio we purchased back in June right after we published this article. We took the $400 - $500 2013 call-spread at $17.20. That spread closed today at $40.45. We expect to sell that position at $100.00 in January 2013 for a 481.4% gain.

    Apple is $20.00 away from our target. We have about 30 trading sessions to get there.

    Yup. That's precisely what we're doing here. I'm up about 50% since Friday by the way. So are many of my subscribers.

    I am rich dude. That's what's funny. People keep saying that. I know what I'm doing and I have well over an 80-90% win rate.

    What you're seeing above is a symmetrical triangle and it already broke out.

    All I can really tell you is that I have a far greater record when it comes to publishing market direction based on technicals than I do with Apple's earnings.

    You can ask current subscribers. We nailed quite a few trades. For example, we got everyone invested -- based on this article above -- on Friday morning at $370 a share. Apple is now sitting here at $390.

    The spread that we bought is up 38.3% in 1.5 trading sessions. All of our Apple position are up significantly and on top of that we got everyone to sell short-term positions on the morning after earnings before this August sell-off and we got everyone hedged in their long-term positions after a full $90.00 from June.

    That's all from technicals. Like technicals are very important and that fact that most retail investors think it's t-leave reading and worthless should raise a MASSIVE warning sign to you. Just a thought. We do very well with our technical analysis. We're not wrong all too often.

    GSlusher -- I don't think you have any idea how proficient we've been over the past few months. Here are a few points which are all verifiable:

    1. Called Apple's bottom the day it bottomed in June. We didn't call a bottom the day before or the day after nor did we call a bottom weeks before or months before. We picked 1 specific day and nailed Apple's bottom.

    2. We called for an immediate move to $350 and a move to $400 before the end of July when Apple had bottomed in June.

    3. We noted that Apple would gap-up significantly on earnings and that the stock would be lower 4-weeks after it's Gap-up opening price. We dedicated 10 separate articles to this both before and after.

    4. We warned on 4 separate occasions in July and in the first few days of August that the market was headed for a crash. Those articles are public. You can see each one here:

    (1) Head & Shoulders Threatends to Ruin the Party"
    bullishcross.com/2011/.../

    August 3, 2011
    So the fear I mentioned about a month ago is very close to turning to fruition. We have a fully set-up MAJOR HEAD & SHOULDERS pattern on the S&P 500. The last 3 bull markets ended in spectacular fashion with the crushing collapse under the weight of a head & shoulders topping pattern....

    (2) Market Warning: Potential Head & Shoulders Set-Up
    bullishcross.com/2011/.../

    July 28, 2011
    The one thing that keeps someone in my position up at night is not “how do I create value and profitable situations for my readers.” The question of how to make money is no longer an issue for me. It really isn’t all that difficult to make money with various investment strategies.

    No. The hard part is being able to recognize when the equity markets might be headed for a crash. Being able to recognize the warning signs ahead of an impending market collapse is where the true value of an financial publication lies. Preventing catastrophic losses, not making oversized gains, should be the number one priority for every investor.

    The market could take a huge dump at any moment, and this is the biggest risk we take every day we step foot into the markets. Over the past several weeks, I’ve repeatedly noted that the S&P 500, DJIA and NASDAQ have been forming a potential massive head & shoulders top pattern to this 2009 – 2011 bull market.

    (3) Trading Apple & the SPY This Week (July 12, 2011)
    bullishcross.com/2011/.../

    (4) Apple & SPY: Positions heading into Next week (July 5, 2011)
    bullishcross.com/2011/.../

    That's 4 separate warnings. Right now, I'm just not too much concerned with earnings. Apple's earnings are great and I'll continue to give relatively conservative estimates which are reasonable. If Apple beats me, then great.

    I'm not looking to be completely perfect on the earnings picture every time. I'm just so much more concerned with far more pressing issues.
