Interesting how we all think the iPhone 5 is a success (and it is), but no one (in the general public) actually has one. I own one, but I still won't see it till Friday.

I just took the average (the middle value of the three models on the Apple website). Just a back of the envelope calculation, brah.

[QUOTE=radcliff;15737101]This would all be great except for one small detail in the article:
Apple is NOT the most valuable company in the world. It's on second place...

It is, as the article clearly states, the most valuable publicly traded company

Interesting that you bring that up. I'll give you 2 possibilities that have essentially already started.

I don't know man. The stocks just keeps going up and up for "no reason" - not very significant reasons to justify the jumps IMHO.

That said, I know crap about stocks - I only know that the stock price of a company depends on what people thinks it's worth. This is just my layman view of things. Maybe this is how stocks work. /shrug

I like Apple and all - definitely getting an iPhone 5 (to replace my ageing 4). Given the way Apple's stock keeps raising, a lot of people investing must really like them.

I agreed with everything you said, except that there are pleny more good news to drive the stock price.. Ipad mini still have to come and it will be a blockbuster too.. Apple is rumored to build up 5m a month capacity for Ipad mini. The implication to me is that we should see a $249 version of Ipad mini (otherwise the 5m capacity is way aggressive)..

This is true and I agree.

You initially reacted by stating that its not more affordable which isn't true and that was the point I was trying to make.

Like I said I agree with 99% of what you say.

I'm going to decide after 10 years, very soon, what to do. I'm 61, a nice age to retire.......
FANTASTIC! That's great to hear. I think there are a lot of people who bought around that time– Jobs was back, after all–*and held for a long time.

Hope you have a happy retirement!

I did try and warn people. Looks like it wants to make its way to the 200 dma currently @ $581. Next week's earnings will make all the difference, I think. I'm still thinking about that gap @ $425.

It will be interesting to see how the 5 is doing. Apple went for form factor as the main selling point, but all I hear is "meh, nothing special"... people's expectations were high on the tech side of things. They can't specify what that would be, they just want "new" and "moar!". The original iPhone was such a leap that everyone has come to expect no less than a revolution every time, and if the latest iPhone can't be used as a jet pack and can't shoot laser beams or teleport coffee to your table, it's "meh".

Touched the 200d sma. Time for a bounce? Volume seems light, however.

So Apple was at $701 when you posted that. It's at $558 today.

Not quite a third, but still a 20% drop...

He doesn't post on here anymore. Think he picked up his ball and took it home when he realised his precious stocks (along with his grand predictions) were tanking.

I wonder what the price of the Apple stock is now? Lol everything that goes up, comes down, when you hear people surprise of how high the stock was, then you needed to worry and cash in. On the other hand, the Google stock is way higher now than what Apple ever was but you don't see anybody being surprise about that :P

Because it's not significant. Apple's market cap is still 50% higher than Google's. Google just has fewer shares.

I don't worry about what other people do. The point I made multiple times in this thread and others of its kind is that worrying about other people is what leads investors into making bad decisions.
