Exactly. Though, the conservative in me would give it two to three weeks. I wouldn't be surprised if we see AAPL get to 500/share by the end of March.

I doubt it will tank off like everyone says in the next few weeks from the adrenaline push its going to get. Apple's magic number has been $420 for the past few months and I think that level will simply be bumped up to the $450ish support level. I've traded apple on earnings for years and thats what its done in the past.

Sadly, those who have been in AAPL for a long time know that logic/rational thinking/common sense typically does not prevail. Watch for a mild bump, then a mild drop, then a gradual increase over the coming weeks/months. America's greatest business success story right now, but investors refuse to acknowledge it. AAPL should have been at $600 already.

Imagine if AAPL had the same P/E as Amazon.

What does "net cpu" "net iphone" "net ipad" mean in the chart?

Sales are sales. There is nothing subtracted from those sales numbers to call them "net"

Make a sub-$500 Mac, and then maybe Apple can have Mac sales in-line with iPhone sales for once. You think a "majority" of iPhone users are Macintosh users? I really wish that was the case.

Apple is a great company with wonderful products, but its run is up. It seems to me that innovation is beginning to run dry, and the stock price is overinflated. The stock has begun to fall already dropping from its $426 high. If the economy does not pick up and the company does not cushion its freefall, we could see new lows into 2012 -- maybe $85. Whatever the case, I see a rocky future and a new bubble about to burst. My recommendation: Sell.

Given the above analysis, we would be hesitant getting too bullish over Apple’s stock price potential in the near term as the call buying already seems to be reflected in the price. If you own shares of the second largest company in the country by market cap, we would be trimming back our position right now.

And yet...the stock price stagnates. Does any company in the world get less credit for dominating their industry in earnings?

EDIT: oops, I spoke to soon. After hours stock just jumped from around +0.5% to +8% That's more like it.

When doesn't Apple beat all its' previous financial records? I feel like they've been doing this every quarter for a long time now.

If Apple could make one I’m sure they would, but simply put they don’t make crap computers.

Amen.
No kidding you are so right! I bought a bunch though a couple months ago, knowing this would be HUGE, and it was. Either way I'm way ahead now. Just need to sell it before the inevitable dip.

Business calendar and our year calendar are not the same thing.

The fiscal calendar often times begin and end in September each year for many companies (same as the US government) but how they choose when to start a year is completely arbitrary. It does not have to line up with our year calendar at all.

This must be your first Apple call.

Apple stock goes up the vast majority of the time. Myopic investors just remember the times they feel wronged much more strongly than they remember the times it went up. Over the past 4 years it has gone up after earnings 70% of the time. Do your homework.

Always wondered the same. Expect the stock, however, to get to over $500 within the next 6-8 months I would guess.
