  • Apple: Stuck Once Again [View article]

    It does seem like AAPL gets stuck in trading ranges but, like you, I don't find that troubling enough to sell the stock. You mention at the end that "there are profitable ways to play this tight trading range as well." Is that for a future article or can you share some of those ideas now? Thanks.

  • Apple: $635 Price Target Feels Right [View article]
    Thanks, Bret. Your thesis makes sense to me. Frothy stocks will reverse (as some have already done), so the markets will have to find other growth catalysts. If they fail to find them, then companies like AAPL should benefit. That said, might the buyers of the frothy also have frothy mindsets? Might they still seek stocks that don't make much sense and follow the herd if momentum begins? In other words, if AAPL doesn't make sense to them now might it also not make sense to them later? Just a thought. Long AAPL.

  • Apple's Prognosis: Range-Bound [View article]
    Thanks, Bret. I appreciate the strategy you've laid out. I kinda hope I get the chance to add to my position before a new catalyst arises.

  • Doubling Down On Apple [View article]
    Thanks, Bobcat9. That gives me some targets to watch and consider adding to my position. I would love to get some more at or near $480, if the opportunity arises.

    I can relate to your frustrations with the stock. Each time earnings comes along I have the urge to sell my holdings and then buy it back right after earnings. But I talk myself out of it because I figure that will be the one report where shares will spike up. And then the earnings come out, the stock plummets, and I kick myself. And then I look to supplement my holdings!

  • Doubling Down On Apple [View article]
    Anyone good with charts have an idea how low AAPL may go before it bottoms? Or is this a bottom (presently about $495) now? I can only add a little more to my holdings, so I'd like to be as effective as possible. Curious if anyone on this thread has researched this.

  • Take The Emotion Out Of Apple [View article]
    I'm no pro in picking the best price entry points, but with a stock like AAPL, wouldn't it be prudent to stagger purchases? Take a partial position on a day like to today and see if another purchase is warranted in the near future? That's my approach. I'd be interested in what others see as near term price targets.

  • Doubling Down On Apple [View article]
    Apple has been a difficult stock to hold, especially at earnings. The market just loves to find a reason to whack it. Maybe someday I'll learn to sell just before earnings and buy back the next day. Until then, I personally remain long with Apple for one reason- if a big decline occurs, my money is safer with Apple than most other companies and the US Treasury! Apple has enough cash to buy its way out of almost any problem that might arise. Long Apple.

  • Tim Cook: The (Negative) $250,000,000,000 Man [View article]
    Jzivick- Well said. I love Apple and am long with it, but I continue to have doubts with Tim Cook. Will he deliver? Like you said, Jobs' silence heightened the anticipation. Cook's silence heightens the doubts. Cook needs to demonstrate his ability to both customers and shareholders.
