Indeed. It's stock manipulation when it goes down but when it goes up - everyone gets into their cutest cheerleading outfits and gets on the bus to go to the big game.

AAPL yield increased to 2.4% so even at 35% federal and 10% state taxes, that is about 1.40% net. Better if your tax rate is any lower. With a whole bunch less principal risk than bonds not held to maturity, and possible upside to the income if they increase the dividend ever.

I think most of the things you mentioned are really just evolutionary changes to existing technologies that don't really change how the laptop operates or is used. I do agree the Retina display is beautiful, and I forgot about the fans. I remember when that was discussed at a Keynote, and I thought that was pretty damn cool. When running processor-intensive apps, the fan really does make a lot of noise on my current 15" cMBP. I wonder how a rMBP compares.

One thing is for sure, I like the specs on the rMBP, and I certainly will be getting one within the year.

What do you want in your "innovative" laptop? Fold-able screens? Infinite battery life?
I certainly love my cMBP, and I will eventually get a rMBP for my next laptop. I don't disagree that the current Retina display is beautiful. I just think it is a similar improvement to what has been happening to laptop displays on Apple's laptops throughout the years: increased resolution with each new model. Maybe I shouldn't have made the comment that it is not innovative. Perhaps I should have made the point that it is not a game-changing innovation.

AAPL was a bubble. The stock had been bid up to 10x in value to $700 in a mere 3 years, an increase like that is enough to indicate a bubble. However, what makes it an even more obvious bubble is the fact that this insane price gouge in AAPL was so fragile that it plummeted 15% in 3 days just because this last quarter didn't have a breakout increase in earnings.

It's not the fault of the analysts, as much as market experts like Jim Cramer or your average Joe Daytrader claim to know about the stock market, in reality no one has a crystal ball or special formula telling them what will happen tomorrow.

You read it here, please refer back when it goes down.

By "goes down," did you mean the stock price? If so, I'm referring.

Here's my prediction, the next AppleTV will come out with unifying content delivery. Basically, Apple is still a growth company, and they're area of growth will be content. It'll start on AppleTV with music streaming and video/movie streaming service, then it'll move onto its other devices. I think the worse decision apple can make is to come out with an actual television.

People laughed when I said $700 was a sell. People laughed when I said $425 was the target (and still is). It should turn around at that point but just in case have a stop at $400. If it does turn, $500 is the possible retrace point.

A con man (Madoff, et.al.) has to build trust at the highest levels before taking people to the cleaners. Same with stock manipulation.

newsflash. Institutional traders don't take trading advice from analysts.

Well, I'm still ahead on my total investment in APPL, though I did lose a lot on the last 100 shares I bought (at ~$630). Had I known what was going to happen, I'd have sold my first 300 shares at $700 and I'd have bought 600 shares of APPL yesterday

Well... here we are. I hope people bought because it didn't stay under $425 too long.. We could see a retrace to $500 now but just in case run a trailing stop. I have a feeling this will drop hard if the US markets roll over.

I am taking a second look at this long term. So far, its not so good.

Still in. Looking for maybe another 10% here to around $500 then profit and reassess. Trailing stop now around $440.

There are also solid number that it is oversold as it has one of the lowest price to earnings ratio.

ok... wannabe fortune tellers like you shouldn't be playing the market like a casino. I think you should ask yourself if anything you're doing with stocks is logical. You're basically buying and selling when you think other people are doing so, regardless of value. Where's the logic in that?

Ain't no wannabe, been doing this with a 65% success rate for over a decade. Called the top at $700. (You made $275/share if you shorted at that point, I don't short). Called the (probably temporary) bottom at $425. ($35/share at this point). AAPL is easy to judge as its so widely held and thus crowd behavior is simple to predict you just have to use risk/reward analysis to pick entry/exit points and then apply tight stops in case the trade goes against you.
