Investors seem nervous ahead of Apple's (AAPL -1%) FQ4 report. Not only is Apple trading lower, so are component suppliers Cirrus Logic (CRUS -4%), OmniVision (OVTI -2.2%), Broadcom (BRCM -2%), and SanDisk (SNDK -1.7%). Expectations definitely aren't where they were on Sep. 21, the day the iPhone 5 launched and Apple made its all-time high. (earlier)

    Just more bounce to the ounce when they report.

     

    Especially for CRUS

    Yes, I agree. Would be good to hedge your bet though.

    @pirota... Aapl investors are well beyond caring about your posts, you add zero value.

    It could also pop back to 700.

    Think January and relax. When it goes under 600, there's going to be some serious money to be made in the next 3 months!

    Traders are pushing it to 589.73. If it breaks that then it hits 573.42 before it makes another move. If sentiment ets worse or they really dissapoint look for 528.66. Unless they really offer some very positive guidance tonight, the powerful traders have had their fun with aapl and will move on. If so, aapl will not revisit its high unless their fundamentals change for the better. One would think that with all the Windows 8 bashing ( I happen to think it is a beautiful and capable OS), aapl would be the clear beneficiary. This just reinforces the fact that the hedges have pulled the plug on aapl. We will see what aapl's guidance has on the price in a few minutes.

    Might concern the Traders but not the Investors.

    It could take a significant hit if their earnings don't blow away estimates, but that will be a great time to buy more shares. I definitely think their next 2 quarters will be impressive based on new products/holiday season. The stock will most likely be $700 or over by January.

    If they announce a dividend increase for 2013, it would be interesting.

    Pirota, if you skip the November rent on your trailer you could buy a share of Apple. When it hits 700 in December you can make your title loan payment on your truck..and get your wife's ring back from the pawnshop. Just saying....
