    Saw $AAPL store tonight - long line for the iPhone still. Guy in store said they have constantly been mobbed since release.

    • XRTrader: true. just an incidental obs that even after their initial announcement, sales of new iPhones have been very strong.

    • stiboltrd: Observations like this work sparingly. What is the 5S to 5C sales ratio? Is your store representative of all stores? Nothing new here.

        Great run on $MT in past month - up about 15% (11 to 12.7). Now over the 50 DMA. 200 DMA is about 14.4, so hopefully it will run up to that.

        • ciolan: It's funny, the last time you posted about $MT going 15% up, it was the start of a 15% down. If now will be the same, you are a prophet :)

        • XRTrader: True! Fortunately, I'm patient. Added on the way down. Up 3% since that post last week. Did sell 20% of my position at $13.10 just in case

            Don't look now, but $MT is up 15.9% in the last month! Playing catch up to the market. Expect out performance to continue.

                I don't understand. $CLF is up or down 5% every day.

                    Took little profit today on some $AAPL bought day after earnings (near $400). Used June $450 options, so up 100%+. Will re-enter on pullback

                        Look at daily price action on $MT! Opened lower near 12.10 & steady line up, now near even at 12.45. There are buyers back in this name.

                                        $AAPL eps $10.09. Revenue beat. China good #s. Low June guidance. But, extra 50 billion buyback and 15% divy increase.

                                        • XRTrader: I think it'll easily recover $425 on this news and should see $450 based on buyback and divy alone within the month.

                                                Interesting price action today on $CLF on a bad tape - it reversed higher near the end of the day. Will watch - still only have 25% position
