  • Apple To $1,000? 1 Main Catalyst [View article]
    yes, by all means, wait until 400 to get in, that's some really good investment strategy there.

  • Harvest Your Apples, Winter Is Coming [View article]
    No, sorry, NOT taking any chips off the table and NOT waiting for this stock to fall to 522......IMO it won't see the south side of 600 ever again unless they split it. Maybe you haven't heard but an iPhone 5 is coming out in a few weeks, an iPad mini soon after that,and certain blowout earnings on October 23 and especially on January 23rd.

  • Time To Split Apple [View article]
    Can I just ask a question for your experts, who know a heckuva lot more about the market than I do; what are they waiting for?

  • Time To Split Apple [View article]
    I agree 100%. If AAPL was to split 10-to-1, each share would be about 66 bucks; I see it going from 66 to 100 much quicker than I do seeing it go from here to 1000. Then, 125, 150 and even 200, probably all within 2 years. Seems far-fetched? Sure, but what about this stock HASN'T surprised us in the past few years? Please, Mr. Cook; give me 4200 shares of your company instead of the 420 I have now; I want to buy a boat .

  • Apple Is Going To Report Near-Record Earnings This Quarter [View article]
    Yes, I get that.....but you are not taking into account the mom and pop type investors, as well as all the fanboys and fangirls who say "I want to buy Apple but it's too expensive". And I see those kind of comments a lot; they would be more likely to buy at 60 rather than 600, nut understanding that the actual PPS does not matter in the end.

    I am long also with no plans to sell anytime soon, but I think you are off base with the split comments. Cook has said they make no sense and don't help the stock's value {I disagree, but that's why I am not CEO], and since they are now paying a dividend it makes no sense for them to split the stock. Good, wishful thinking, as I think AAPL at 60 dollars per share shoots up to 100 way before it does from 600 to 1000, but don't think it's gonna happen.

  • Apple Share Price Target: $815 [View article]
    yawn at 30%?

    who would yawn at that yield?

    I would take 30% return on my investments for the rest of my life - very happily!

  • Apple: The Pullback Might Be Worse Next Week [View article]
    your friends are in the minority......most people want an Apple phone, and the ones who don't have one are jealous of the ones who do. I have a teenage daughter and trust me, Apple envy is real - when iPhone 5 is released it will make the 4S seem like a joke by comparison in terms of sales.

  • Apple And Foxconn Just Crippled Apple's Biggest Competitors [View article]
    yes, the Chinese workers want them. I live in Asia, and believe me, working 10 or 12 hours a day in a factory for [comparably] good wages beats the heck out of 10 or 12 hours picking rice for peanuts.

  • Apple: Take Profits Before You Lose Them [View article]
    I could buy a Mercedes 550SL right now for cash with some of my profits; I would rather leave it in AAPL and in a year buy 2 of them. Or 3.

  • Apple: Take Profits Before You Lose Them [View article]
    I agree with you 100%. Before I got into AAPL I was ''diversified'' in stocks which gave me nothing but headaches and a drop in my portfolio of about 30%. Since AAPL? My 30% has come back plus 80% on top of that. No more listening to experts, no more headaches or stomach aches, just profit.
    No throwing rocks at the author, and I am sure his reasoning is sound; it just doesn't apply to me. I never understand these guys who say "you will never lose money by taking a profit". What? If I sell now and they go up another 100 bucks I *lose* more than 40 grand which I would have made if I had held on.
    Holding long to 900 then will re-evaluate.
