  • Why Apple Is Worth $80 [View article]
    i sold out @ $200 and am happy to do so. Long term AAPL is a buy, short term, it's a sell. Here is my reasoning:

    1. Nice run up due to strong sales. revenue recognition FASB ruling is not a reason for a runup, so Kramer's arguement is not valid.

    2. Taxes. Lots of funds/investors have tax loss carryforwards. As the year nears, its probably a good bet to take some returns w/o having a tax penalty.

    3. The response to this article. AAPL may not be worth $80, but the response here that it's worth much more gives me reason to think that fund managers will be taking profits at the expense of people who don't know when something is overvalued.

    note: I bought AAPL in '05 around $70 sold around $100...missed the run up to $200 and the crash. Bought again late last year @100 and sold @ 200. had i held onto my stock from '05 I would made the same in return, but in real terms I've done better.

    JRCC was the catalyst for the latest run. I don't see it being sustainable.

  • A Few Thoughts on the Upcoming Auto Sector Implosion [View article]
    1. how could chinese vehicle development be 10 months shorter than a north american (or japanese) company?

    i agree that the boat ride is 4 wks and the chinese auto manufacturing industry is here now. i would like to get more information as to why or if it is possible that chinese vehicle development is as good as a north american/japanese company. i find this hard to believe.

    ford stated during the first bailout hearings in december that they would need support IF chrysler or GM went bankrupt. also F's sales plan is for 11 million SAAR, we're on track for 9-10 million vehicles sold.

    I'm buying $4 puts on F if the price is right this week

  • Sucker's Rally Approaching an End [View article]
    things that have changed in the past five weeks that i can think of the top of my head:

    1. mark to market rule change
    2. treasury pumping more $$$ into the market (insurance)
    3. china saying their first stimulus plan showing signs of change
    4. china getting ready for a round 2 of stimulus
    5. g20 meeting...anything come out??

    not that i'm saying we're heading straight up, but the point is, things have changed in the past five weeks.
