    • Ocean Man: My original AAPL post said starting small, intending to leg-in. Many times I referenced 566 as the target of my final leg-in.

    • Ocean Man: portfolio until its pullback had reached 20% off its highs. Now it has done that, and I'm very comfortable with my position size, average

    • Ocean Man: buy-in price more than $100 below the highs, downside risk, and upside potential. I'd have to think about whether I'd add if it fell further

    • Ocean Man: as that would be outside of my original position-building plan. I might but it would depend on my other ideas at the time.

    • Ocean Man: There are lots of high-quality stocks I'd love to buy a big position in if they dropped 20%. Most don't make it there.

    • TruffelPig: Agree 100%. AAPL is still cheap at $700 actually. Right now it is ultra cheap.

    • binder: ocean man and trufflepig do you see it going back up to even 685 in next couple on months chart is really broken

    • TruffelPig: the chart is NOT broken - you must look long-term

    • TruffelPig: The night is darkest before the day breaks. Today some analysts came out in support. This will get more intense now.

    • binder: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE stock being in stage four?
      11/8/12
    • TruffelPig: I don't think in technical terms.

    • Perkins Cove: No, Truffel, you think in terms of 'The night is darkest before the dawn". You are doomed to a life of spirituality my friend. Sorry. LOL

    • Perkins Cove: BTY, while OM did "take the hook' on this thread, he did NOT take the hook on another. Even the great OM can learn.

    • Perkins Cove: On this forum, as on most others, there are certain "toxic" individuals that try to suck the life out of us.

    • Perkins Cove: As one who contacted SA on your behalf, I congratulate you for following the only procedure you had available to you.

    • Perkins Cove: While Chines33 is gone, and Justin Hall may also be gone, no one can claim you OM on his trophy belt. Toxic individuals do exist.

    • Perkins Cove: Kudos OM for staying the course. Took Guts.
      11/8/12
    • westcoastinvests: It took guts to write to SA to tell them someone was bothering him because they asked him some legitimate questions?
      11/8/12
    • Perkins Cove: When an individual is recognized as "toxic" (in OM's case an obsessed stalker) the best thing to do is ignore that individual.
