  • Apple: Probably Going To Remain Painful For The Average Investor  [View article]
    Apple is looking like a potential safe harbor at this point. Sure, it can still go lower, how likely is that? I'd be a lot more nervous about companies like AMZN and GOOG at this time - and they don't pay dividends. GOOG, for example, has been going down for five weeks now - despite the fair-haired child status it has garnered during Apple's slide.

    Yeah, I don't plan on selling my shares. Buy I'd like t think that my 430/35 vertical calls will be in the money by then.

  • 3D Printer Company Market Watch  [View article]
    Thank you for your thoughts, Mikko - an interesting and useful article. I'm wondering if anyone might opine on Cimatron CIMT, an Israeli CAD/CAM company that is moving into the 3D printing arena. I bought it recently but sold it when it took a nose-dive. But now, at a much lower price, I'm taking another look.

  • The DoD will place an order for 650K iOS (AAPL) devices - 210K iPhones, 120K iPads, 100K iPad Minis, and 200K iPod touches - following the end of the sequester, Electronista reports. The iOS gear will reportedly be used to replace BlackBerrys (BBRY) - the DoD currently has 470K in operation - and would come ahead of the planned implementation of a "platform agnostic" device policy in Feb. 2014. Electronista previously reported the DoD had largely ended BB10 testing due to budget cuts.  [View news story]

    @ therealevan - I understand what you're saying, but my account begs to differ. On a high profile stock like AAPL, where there are boatloads of articles coming out every day, I agree. But on the smaller companies, or companies less followed, an SA article can make a big difference.

    Also, sometimes a comment in an SA article can be more valuable than the article itself. That's how I found out about Primero Mining last year. Talk about a rocket ride!

  • Apple Slim Down, Buy When There's Blood In The Streets  [View article]
    If I were an Apple competitor I'd be a little nervous right now, because it's been way too quiet in Cupertino for a while. And I don't think that's because they've run out of products or ideas. "Blood in the streets"? The question is, whose blood?

    Great article! I think many people are afraid to trade in the pre/after markets because they've read or been told that it's dangerous to do so. However, there are cases when it's dangerous not to, for example, when earnings are coming out after close (or prior to open). A stock I owned was up 12% in after hours when earnings were initially announced, only to plummet 20% when management provided terrible guidance. I was able to get out before my profits were gone, but it would have been a real bummer otherwise. Important safety tip: make sure the other shoe has dropped before you log out of your trading platform.

    Really? Check out what happened to DDD and SSYS and, more recently, HIMX, in the wake of articles in SA. Do you think retail investors are the only people reading these articles?

  • Google Glass/Himax Debate Rages On, Digitimes Report Adds To The Drama  [View article]
    So is it possible that two guys, of no particular visibility in the investment community, can cause a stock to rise and fall hundreds of millions of dollars within a few days, on the basis of a speculative dialog? It would appear so. What a wild few days it has been.

    It also appears that the symmetrical rise and fall of a stock price on the basis of this kind of news is in effect. I like the company for the long run but had to take profits while there were still profits to take.
