  • Though many pundits, analysts, and (reportedly) employees liked Apple's (AAPL -2.3%) big management shakeup (I, II), shares have fallen below the $600 threshold today. Scott Forstall had plenty of critics, but he also earned a lot of respect on account of iOS' success over the last 5 years. Today's decline comes as Chinese regulators give their approval to iPhone 5 models meant for China Unicom (CHU) and China Telecom's (CHA) 3G networks.  [View news story]

  • Apple: Too Far Too Fast, Again  [View article]
    i think what the author is trying to say is that there will be some sort of meaningful dip in the near future so it's better to sell now. this is true for short-term traders but not for long-term who believe AAPL will continue it's path upwards. IMO, the build up to the sept announcement is priced in currently and have a feeling it will drop once the invitations go out or on 9/12. sold my LEAPS for 65% profit and planning to reload once it dips. if you think it's not going to dip at all from now until december, that is wishful thinking. i'm not an AAPL hater - i have the iphone, ipod, air, and ipad. just being real about the stock trend.

  • Thanks Apple For Killing My Portfolio  [View article]
    Can I reference this article when AAPL picks up again later this year? You "believe" Cook made Apple "normal". I "believe" in fundamentals and potential growth prospects. Let's see who wins in the end. By the way, how is your P doing? Was your cost basis 14?

  • How Will Apple Bulls Spin This?  [View article]
    How can you be "incredibly bullish near-term" when you agreed with Santos that they will miss their most recent earnings estimates?

    "Santos connects Verizon (VZ) and AT&T's (T) comments on iPhone sales activity to his prediction of an AAPL miss. As much as I like Apple and often take exception with Santos, re: AMZN, I have to agree."

    If you were "incredibly bullish", wouldn't you have been confident and savvy enough to not discount China as a major driver for their 2nd quarter earnings?
