  • 5 Reasons Apple Is A Bad Bet [View article]
    Geez. All those big words and knowledgeable numbers!

    I wanted to buy AAPL at 48 -- yes, 48 (or maybe 49) in 2008, and my bookkeeper talked me out of it saying that if anything happened to Steve Jobs, it would tank like it did when it was revealed that he had cancer (or something to that effect). I have been sorry ever since and keep thinking it can't go any higher. Seeing comments in IBD that "cracks are beginning to show" and "nothing goes up forever", but I liked better the comment here to the effect that once you buy into their system, you are sort of "locked into it." That's Ms. Average, Me. Also, I HAD a PC that drove me nuts, so I switched to an Apple desktop, and have NEVER had a problem. I LOVE it. But, now I want a laptop. My kids gave me an Ipad 1 tablet. Now, I want the 2. Also, hate to type on it, but those guys in-the-know alll say none of the others can compare. Also, in either WSJ or IBD, I read that the new Iphone coming in October will be five inches. I am waiting for it because I can hardly read the tiny print on the old one my son loaned to me to learn on. (Never mind that you can enlarge the print with a flick of your fingers. He tells me only on the internet. Maybe the newer ones are better). Also, I am having a heck of a time understanding how to use the darn thing. But, son told me it took him a year of silent "playing" with it, and now he knows how to do everything. Are we just slow learners? All this talk about PEs and PBs, etc., etc,... truth is nobody really knows what it will do. You can compute and take educated guesses all you want, but none of us really knows what it will do. You pays your money and you take your chances. It's one step up from Las Vegas-style gambling. But, just a little step. I have been reading about stocks since my daddy used to make me look up Kerr-McGee when I was 14 years-old and it was in the $70s and he owned it. (I mean he owned the stock.) I am now 78.

  • Facebook IPO Analysis: Thanks, But No Thanks [View article]
    I don't use FB anymore. I find I tend to do what most other people do. I think it was formed to get info about people's likes and desires to sell to advertisers. Why should I give out all that info about myself for free so others can make money off the information? Don't you think the average person will figure this out eventually and realize they are just being used? But, then, what do I know?
