Apple (AAPL +4.8%) is roaring higher after analysts came to its defense yet again (I, II). Today's gains come as the Beijing Times reports China Telecom (CHA) will begin taking iPhone 5 pre-orders tomorrow, and 9to5 Mac reports early builds of the next version of Mac OS X feature Siri and Maps integration.

    We're from a small town in Kansas and were in Kansas City over the weekend. Went to the Apple store for some things for the kids and could not even get helped. I'm in retail and wish that was a problem we had at times! Went to Best Buy and the Apple section was packed as well! The other sections were busy but I'd say the Apple section was three times busier.

    Hello there, I noticed this in Vancouver BC at the Metrotown Apple retail location. The genius bar, where people can learn how to use Apple products is a great idea. I noticed many curious customers speaking to the Apple product's educators asking lots of questions which were carefully and respectfully being answered. It is great/sincere customer service like this that customers appreciate supporting their decision to buy from Apple and remain loyal customers. Positive retail service like this, which Apple is known for will result in high sales.

    Right on schedule. Huge bounce back today right in time for Black Friday. Pullback was played to perfection for the maximum reload. Found support just north of $500 and bounced off in a huge way. Woo hoo.

    I am predicting a 'not so huge bound' over the next few weeks but you can expect the stock back between 610 to 625 $ somewhere next to January 15th 2013. A strong reload of AAPL from investment funds will begin there... Appy New Ear to the "Nays"!!!
    :p

    I have been long Apple since it began to depreciate the end of Sept. I did not sell for a profit at 705 when I could have as all of the facts re: Apple it's financial fundamentals, Cook's competence, operating in a growth sector told me it's intrinsic value is at 760-850 which Apple will level out at, along with a growing quarterly dividend it is a great long-term hold. It has been short/swing traders who have been playing up any seemingly neg. press to scare, anxious long-term investors into selling, sell/buy based on facts, rational thinking not fear ever! A key that value investors like myself examine is management's competence, commitment to the companies success ect.. Tim Cook is increasingly proving himself to be a wise, competent, skilled, hardworking, CEO as well as personally very committed to Apple's long-term, enduring success via ongoing refreshes of new products, introducing entirely new products and services, building and maintaining macro scale production, carefully protecting and building on Apple's brand a key to high revenue ect.. Cook's focus on retaining skilled, talented, motivated, tech enthusiastic employees further indicates his commitment to Apple's long-term success and growth for decades to come. New product ideas and development will come from inspired, motivated employees Cook is creating a working environment where they feel supported and can thrive. This is evident i.e. by his style of interacting with employees and the sincerely thankful emails he sends them such as a big thank-you to all the Apple retail staff posted in the press, that is super smart. Happy retail staff who feel respected by Apple will sell more products and will want to continue working for the company. There is a labour shortage in the tech sector, Cook is handling this with sincerity and skill, which will reflect in higher revenue and Apple's long-term stabilty/success.

    I almost unconsciously bought 500 AAPL on margin ovrr the last two weeks. I was not crazy. Now I realize the smart money voice in me was giving orders to the insecure body to just do it. And now, well, I do not see $750 as near term problem. Next two earnings cycles will be the biggest ever in corporate history with huge growth. Why anyone has been selling these past five weeks is beyong me. They are the crazy ones. And the losers. Now winners hold for $750 area when all the shorts will finally start buying. gg
