  • Apple Bulls Are Wearing Shades, But Is The Future Really That Bright? [View article]
    By just about any metric, AAPL is cheap. It seems to have lost some luster during the FB IPO, and we all know how that turned out. My guess is that it will regain being the "darling" of the Street after the next earnings blowout...

    Well said, Outsider.

    That's what it took for me... I was gifted an iPad, which I use regularly. But I still prefer Android and (sigh) Windows.

    That was an early lesson in objectivity. Regardless how I feel, masses of people obviously feel different. The top and bottom line doesn't lie. I still maintain that a person is smart, people are stupid... But I digress.

    I'm long AAPL, although I do trade frequently so it's not always in my portfolio (It's action of late has been terrible...). Nonetheless, it is a great holding, regardless how you play it (buy-n-hope, I mean hold, or trading with a underlying bias of bullish).

    As I say to the person who gifted me this product: You keep buying their products, I'll keep buying their shares.

    He is long the stock...

    I, too, am long AAPL (just stepped back in yesterday at 100dsma), but I concede that if markets keep rolling over, even the hallowed behemoth will move lower.

  • Apple: Weighing Bullish, Bearish Arguments Supports Long Case [View article]
    Correction... Traders liked it all the way to 640. Now, with fresh meat coming on the market (FB), they're scrambling to get shares in hopes of a doubler. Investors, on the other hand, still like AAPL, and they love seeing the masses flee, which gives them great buying opportunities.

    Perhaps AAPL was support for their own stock with their new $10b buyback...

    No need at all. Your logic leads me to believe you've been around the block a time or two. :)

    There isn't a lot at which to point currently, as AAPL continues to execute with astonishing results.

    Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. The question to which there is no answer is certainly by far the most important... when does this happen? My guess is that we're years and years, if not decades, away...

    I tend to agree with you, leadingimage. But a word to the wise... complacency is rarely profitable. This notion of AAPL being invincible will burn many a folk some day... perhaps not in the near future, but inevitable nonetheless.

    Oh I agree. Just a "perspective" observation...

    Is AAPL considered a growth stock? With such a low p/e, it's hard to tell! I would tend to classify it as growth (because of earnings growth over the years). If AAPL is a growth, and I think so, then shouldn't its multiple reflect that? Current valuations make it a value stock and the recent dividend and "new investors" could argue that point. Seems like the million dollar question...

    Great points! I've been in and out of AAPL and am looking to get back in. I agree that this recent drop provides an excellent opportunity. My biggest concern is the momentum... which of late is certainly downward. The slightest hiccup could punish the stock, even though at current valuations it is very cheap. I'm beginning to test the waters, but am not in a hurry to step in front of a train. Just because a stock is cheap doesn't mean it can't/won't get cheaper... even though it doesn't necessarily deserve it. Can you imagine AAPL trading at AMZN valuations? Estimates of 2012 are 44.47 (Fidelity)... slap an 80x p/e on it and you're looking at over $3500 per share!!! No harm in dreaming... :)

    lol... Funny you say that. I've often thought that Sprint would be an excellent acquisition for Google. In the quest for world domination, it only makes sense. Assuming Motorola deal pans out, they would effectively own the whole system - carrier, phone, OS, market, and of course, search. I suppose Apple would have a similar interest... good point!

    Then AAPL better start looking to spend some cash on becoming its own service provider...

    If history tells us anything, it's that all this will be of little importance a few years from now. Look no further than the aforementioned NOK. If you do want to look further, how about MSFT, HPQ, IBM... Whatever goes up must come down. It's the way of the universe!
