  • Market preview: Stock futures are higher and EU shares are mostly in the green as investors focus on China's increasing exports rather than Japan's expected slide back into recession.

    You can either average down or losers, or pyramid into winners. I prefer the latter.

  • If there was any lingering doubt Samsung's (SSNLF.PK) Galaxy S line has an unrivaled cachet in the Android universe, Strategy Analytics' Q3 data should remove it. The firm estimates 18M S III units were shipped, giving the device a 10.7% share of total smartphone shipments. It also estimates Apple (AAPL), which sold 26.9M iPhones overall, is believed to have shipped 16.2M iPhone 4S units and 6M iPhone 5 units. Samsung's total Q3 smartphone shipments were previously pegged at 56.9M. Key Galaxy S III suppliers: MXIM, SWKS, ADNC, BRCM[View news story]
    Why do analysts/retail ivnestors write articles if they have no position in them? Stop being upset that your AAPL position is bleeding $$$ every single day.

  • Apple (AAPL) is reiterated a Buy with $900 price target by Jefferies' Peter Misek, who sees the firm's gross margin issues being positively resolved in Q4. Misek has Q4 iPhone sales of 53M - about 5-7M above the Street - which could boost margins by 80 bp. Add that to Apple's typical 300 basis point lowball (36%), and Misek sees CQ4 GM at 40%. He raises his EPS estimate to $16 from $15.50 (Street consensus: $13.52). Shares +0.8% premarket.  [View news story]
    Not at all. My puts are up 150%.

    If you loved AAPL at $700, you'll certainly love it at $545. Shall I sign you up for 500 shares or 1000?
