  • ArcelorMittal Worthy Of Traders, Speculators, Or Investors [View article]
    TECHNICALLY- the stock is moving in 1 direction-down, taking a position now, if only for dividend is ok, but for profit is a no go. Only once the stock breaks through its resistence it will shoot to 16 Euros. The company is a dinaosaur on speed and in our current environment needs to loose a lot of weight if it wants to remain competitive.

  • Apple (AAPL) -1.3% after Canaccord's Mike Walkley, a long-time bull, slashes his FQ3 iPhone sales estimate to 29.34M from 33.58M, and his FQ4 estimate to a mere 26.11M from 33.58M. Walkley, who is nonetheless raising his PT to $740, says recent checks indicate iPhone sales have "modestly declined in certain developed markets," and expects this trend to continue due to new Android launches, Verizon's LTE promos, and iPhone 5 anticipation. FQ2 results are due on Tuesday.  [View news story]

  • What Facebook thinks it's really worth: a bit less than some had expected. In negotiations to buy Instagram, the parties are said to have valued Facebook (FB) at ~$75B, although the IPO is still expected to come in at ~$100B. If it does, then FB really paid $1.23B for Instagram.  [View news story]
    It all depends on the lock up period for selling the shares...otherwise it does not matter as Instagram shareholders will sell on the IPO date for an exuberant amount.....

  • Heading into Apple's (AAPL) April 24 FQ2 report, Gene Munster predicts his favorite company will report it sold 33M iPhones, 12M iPads, and 4.3M Macs during the quarter - consensus forecasts stand at 30.5M, 13M, and 4.4M, respectively. In spite of the conservative iPad forecast, Munster believes demand is healthy, noting "wait times at Apple's online store remain at 1-2 weeks." He also expects an Apple TV set to be announced late this year. (Barclays) (Sterne Agee)  [View news story]

  • There's no clear trigger behind the latest selloff in Apple (AAPL -3.4%); shares are now down 9% from their Tuesday high. Some speculate Texas Instruments' (TXN) addition to the NASDAQ 100 (QQQ) is playing a role, as index funds will need to sell some Apple to rebalance, but that can't explain why fellow large-cap index members Microsoft (MSFT +0.9%) and Intel (INTC +1%) are up. With Apple still up 43% YTD, perhaps a breather was inevitable.  [View news story]

    My play buy 1/3 @ 577/575 then 1/3 @ 551 and lastly 1/3 @ 543 giving you an average buying price of 557 USD. Actually I am feeling lucky and it would be better to buy nothing @ 577 and buy 1/3@ 568, 1/3 @551 and 1/3 @ 543 giving you an average buying price of USD 554. Happy hunting

    it looks like 577 will happen and then 569, 556 and lastly 543 before any turnaround....if it goes below then time to really prey otherwise if the results are blockbuster we are in the money otherwise 3rd Q buildup will help you to be in the money + dividend.....

  • Possibly contributing to today's weakness in Apple (AAPL -2.5%) is another cautious note from Wedge Partners' Brian Blair (previous), who argues FQ2 iPad expectations are too high. Blair believes just 11M iPads were sold in FQ2, well below a consensus of 13M. He also worries iPhone sales (the majority of Apple's gross profit) could disappoint if estimates rise further.  [View news story]

    April 10th - $644.00
    April 13th - $605.00/share
    i.e= 5.4% drop

    From 10.04 to 13.04 on average 30 million shares have been traded and this is on the high end for Apple stocks. Another indicator that today will be red. The relative strength index, has fallen below 70 currently at 54 below its low of 57 on 24th January 2012, another indicator it is heading down.
    Momentum has also fallen to below 20 from trending above 50 from Feb 8th to April 11th. It fell from 50 to 19 in 2 days and does not look like its reversing.
    These technical indicators will become divergent if Apple rises today but in the long run PRICE FOLLOWS THE INDICATORS.
    Currently @ 605 USD. This is also the first level of support, if Apple does not break this support level good, if it does, then we see 600.75 as next level of support after which 575 (upper GAP), 568 (lower GAP). The major support level is 543.29. It can hit 543.29 before turning around if it meets/misses Q2 estimates or gives a bad outlook. I guess the outlook will be great because everything is going great guns for them. That leaves only the results beating estimates solidly for it to blow up to 623, 636, 644 where it meets resistance.

    KillerSGT (apt name), I am not saying that Apple will go down I am saying that it will become cheaper after Q2 results and a good time to buy it. Secondly, you can already see it in the price and this is a correction, if today the price maintains its postion good but if it falls a USD or two then watch it hit it's next support level. If you are holding and selling covered calls or puts good for you, great strategy as it will go up. I am out Apple and am waiting for a good price to buy in for the next run up. So which ever way I buy apple after Q2 results- hell or heaven -can both be pretty....
