The stock market has gone up 450 points or so in 2 days.
There will be a correction tomorrow regardless of Job's health.

+1

Aapl is down 4 dollars today, about 1.25 percent.
The Dow is down 1.4 percent, about 161 points.


So Aapl has fallen less than the market in general.
Last night puts were being written for aapl to fall 20 points. I bet those guys are crying the blues now.

Aapl has billions in cash, no debt, a devoted following and a tremendous market line up. The fundamentals have not changed one bit.

They have 100BN in revenues, 28 BN in cash and 46k employees.

Every company in America would like to have those stats.

One man is not going to make a difference.

AAPL was down over 3% from yesterday's close when it opened this morning. Puts bought yesterday made money if sold at the open. Hence why I said I wanted to go back in time. Buying puts this morning would have been stupid though. Apple did go down 5-10% then it came back up slowly in after hours trading and again pre-market and throughout the day. It's a great part of a portfolio, but that doesn't mean there isn't money to be made sometimes on the down-turns too. Not everything in the market is about fundamentals. In fact, fundamentals only really affect price when they change. The rest of the factors are what determines price for the rest of the time (i.e. majority).

I've had AAPL for a few years and it has performed exceptionally well. I'm not worried about this news causing anything but a minor blip on the radar, if even that.

Yeah, not everything is based on facts. I think emotion drives the market more than facts, except perhaps insider trading ...lol.

If gas goes up, the dollar goes down etc..stocks tend to move in the same direction, regardless of a company's stats...

I was going to buy it about 5 years ago when it was 20 dollars a share then it shot up to 60 then 80 then it hit 100. I was waiting for it to drop and pull back...now look where it is........... I missed the boat...

Mcdonalds has about 8 million employees just about the same
revenue and no debt

I'm holding my Aapl until after Christmas. I'm betting they beat expectations.

Opinions?

They ALWAYS beat expectations. I'll ride apple until I smell a competitor coming up with something that may beat their products. Me thinks I will be a LONG ride. My cost average is $124, so I think there is more profit to be had.

Except for when they didn't in Q3, lol.


(not like it was a big issue for them in the mid to long run)

They missed last quarter haha

Next earnings release is gonna be heinous though, they've probably made so much money off the 4S.

Blew earnings out. I bought some shares about 2 weeks ago, I hope there is some pull back so I can buy the rest of my desired position.

I got in at 390.23, my stop is at 438.94 and my target is 472.60 (those are revised after earnings took out my initial target). If I get too many other good set-ups before either happen though, I will probably cash out and move on to the next trade. Currently almost 65% cash right now though.

I got in when it was in the $130's, so I'm letting it ride unless it has a substantial, sustained dip
