  • Apple: One More Thing [View article]
    Good article, I agree, it seems somehow ordinary.

  • Apple Performance Following Major Product Launches [View article]
    I think much of it depends on whether the IPhone 5 will have enough enhancements and new product features so the market will see it as something that represents a new generation. My sense, and it is only that, is that the phone will become the new standard bearer almost immediately. If it looks like the 4s Apple is lightly toasted.

  • Apple: Take The Money And Run [View article]
    There is some virtue in taking profits if you have them. So it may not be terrible advice to do that if you've doubled or more with your AAPL

  • The San Jose Verdict: Implications For Apple [View article]
    Nice comment. People are saying that this will discourage competition,not true, it will encourage innovation. Samsung clearly mimicked APPL. Now expect Applemto start working hard toward that $1000 mark.

  • Apple: Buy Put Options To Protect Gains [View article]
    I wonder what the advocates of Aapl put buying are saying now with the recent run up. That the stock will fall when the new iPhone is rolled out in a few weeks? That the iPad domination in the global tablet market does not matter and will make the price actually fall?

    Let's keep an eye on this suggested trade and see how it works out. We will be keeping you mind in the September run up. If you think the price of Apple will fall with the announcement of IPhone 5 and IPad mini, going into a new quarter with never having missed twice, well then buy all the puts you can afford. I will be delighted to sell them to you or anyone else.

    Please give a reason if you think so, for the sake of the rational reader

    With all due respected, how could anyone buy puts in the eve of a major new iPhone upgrade, iPad mini, and who knows what else (and Samsung looks like its struggling in the infringement case). It seems a wildly reckless "insurance" advice. It seems a better bet, and this put strategy is a bet for sure, to load up on far OTM callsjn expectation of explosive moves on new products and big earnings, especially in early 2013.

  • Apple Dividend, Last Call [View article]
    Thanks Russell Gold, one would think this would be the exact time ( the next day even) that the large institutional investors would buy in before skyrocketing price with new phase of Apple development, beyond what we've seen in Jobs area as the next event horizon.


    One wonders why the institutions would wait at all at this point.

  • Apple Dividend, Last Call [View article]
    Then one should expect a drop in price, though people should hold through events coming. Samsung, iPhone 5, iPad mini.

  • Apple: Trading The Calendar For The Next Few Months [View article]
    Is the dividend payment figured in as an event? It would seem that it should be, more people buying in advance of the dividend payment. Or is it already priced in?

  • Apple Dividend Demand Moving The Stock [View article]
    But with big events coming, it would be imprudent to sell, when you can get divi and the announcement run up and pop.
