  • A Simple Options Bet On Apple That Could Make 62% In One Month [View article]
    Very interesting that the stock closed at exactly 500 on Jan. 18th...(triple witching?)

  • Deja Vu, BlackBerry [View article]
    If you look at the monthly over the last couple of years, BBRY IS forming a W pattern which signals a slow reversal. swim we are talking about long-term trend for this stock, this W is actually bullish for BBRY and confirms the reversal long thesis in a macro sense.

  • Apple Beats But Treated As Second Class [View article]
    Not at all. At worst, a dip slightly before 500 and I don't even think that will happen. When apple was above 600, the expectations were 180 degrees different. No one has those expectations now. Apple isn't seeing the low 400s again (unless it is years in the future and/or there's a market implosion like back in 2008)

  • Citi downgrade or not, it's relief rally time for many (though not all) Apple suppliers: the group was clobbered on Thursday and Friday as negative supply chain/order data came in. CRUS +4.3%. BRCM +1.4%. QCOM +2.4%. AVGO +1.5%. SWKS +3%[View news story]
    Completely agre. Citi's antics have been laughable, at best. They are an embarassment to an already embarassing analyst establishment. Initiating a buy then changing that to a neutral a mere few weeks later...

  • Consider Selling Apple Stock [View article]
    Sunil, thanks for the article and I appreciate some of the contrarian points you make BUT...I will focus on one thing that is just flat out wrong, disingenuous, and unfounded in your article. The iPad Mini is considered a failure?

    How can you intellectually and honestly make such a statement? And on what POSSIBLE grounds do you make it? Not only do we have zero data on the total ipad minis sold so far (actually that is not accurate- we know that they exceeded expectations significantly in their opening weekend), and not only was it well reviewed, AND not only is there NO consensus whatsoever that remotely approximates "ipad mini is a failure"...but as an owner of an ipad mini I can say that it is far from a failure. It is sleek, elegant, and quite frankly, the best tablet on the market. I am not an Apple fanboy and don't own many Apple products, so my opinion is not colored.

    You have made some thoughtful points - but don't reach and make completely nonsensical statements to retrospectively buttress a thesis.

    It is not a waste of time. It is a reverse method of showing you what the current stock price assumes.

  • Apple, I Want My Money Back! [View article]
    Really user 4121? Perhaps because you don't normally engage in options, you completely missed the math in the article. I won't go into it since the author just replied.

    Next time you bother to correct the author of an article, "have time to do the math."

    Really BigDog? You seem to be the sole person who has miraculously ascertained the mystery behind the sell off yesterday.

  • Apple Is Misunderstood By Both Analysts And The Media [View article]
    I completely agree with this article. The problem is Apple's price is significantly affected by invester emotion...which is significantly affected by these absurd analyst estimates which almost ensure a "letdown."

    So, as an investor in Apple stock (and long options), I still completely believe in the fundamentals and growth potential of the company...but am concerned about continuing to pay the price (as I did over the last 30-40 days) because of ludicrious commentaries, articles, blogs that perseverate over Apple "letdowns", "estimate misses", etc... What to do?
