    Every iPerson ("i" stand for intelligent?) who needs one (or two or three!) of those gadgets looks like got them already. Now the one billion population in China (and the other one billion in India) will come to the rescue and provide the infinite growth that these products deserve.

    After hours volume up over 4 million shares traded, already 1/4 of the volume on the trading day today. S&P futures already down.

    Last summer you could have bought Apple for 310.00 in July. Also cause people hold off for their most popular item the next IPhone!

    Let me know when some Apple employee loses his IPhone prototype in a bar.....then we'll be close, by X-mas the IPad mini and IPhone5 will be the hottest sellers. Than we'll see astonishing growth once again.

    Apple is broken. They are thinking they can sit on their ass. What the hell good is all that cash if i's not invested on gaining an edge, even if you have to double the effort to get products to market. Samsung is certainly pulling out all the stops. Samsung isn't turning in crap quarters. Apple need to learn from Samsung.


    I am very disappointed in Apple. I think it just may be down hill from here on. They just don't get it. Just like the old Apple before Jobs came back to right the ship.

    Since Samsung unabashedly copies Apple products, stores, App stores...if Apple copies Samsung, doesn't that leave them doing just what they already do?


    ...or will Samsung magically transform into the innovator rather than the copycat?

    Ernieschu the dividend will be paid on 8/16 the ex date is 8/9..
    A reader made a comment I do not recall the name but the comment was that apple is stupid for not doing something with with all that cash ..On one hand I agree but Tim Cook and company are not stupid. Steve Jobs was doing the same thing ,hording cash.. My theory is it is a /war chest of cash..I be leave Apple is going to do something BIG ,I don't know what ,It might have something to do with the TV ,it might be several things but what ever it is ,it will be huge and they are going to be able to do it..Those guys are the smartest people in the room..I have been investing for 25 years and I am breaking one of my rules ,probably the biggest one of all and that is not to put all your eggs in one basket .I have 6 stocks and in the past probably averaged 17 to a time .I have about 80% of my money in Apple ..I read 30 to 50 article most apple articles but I be leave a stock like apple may come around once in a generation..I know the risk but as Jim Cramer says ''Do your home work'' I do like reading everybody's comments.A lot of people have some great strategies and theories..I welcome your comments .I am a independent inverter .Don't really commend stocks but love to chat about them... God bless you all,
