I can afford one share. But perhaps it's worth to buy it, to get the $2 dividend, which I can buy a banana for.

My sister ordered one through the Apple store on 15 Oct and she just received the shipping notification that she will receive it on 23 Nov. So 5 weeks for her Verizon iphone 5. She even called them up and asked about the delay and the phone drone said that it was normal.

But I got my iPhone 5 the day it was released after staying up past midnight!

I thought about that for a second, but if you're right, I have to admit that the sarcasm went over my head cause it wasn't exaggerated TOO much (especially if you consider other posts concerning Apple stocks here) and I didn't know his previous posts. Well, however...

I don't think that this chart is anywhere near accurate... It is still very hard to find iPhone 5's instock at any store. Perhaps they check in the morning or see who got a delivery and record that as "in-stock".

However, as we all know, stores with units in stock sell out fairly quickly, making them not so "in-stock". Haha.

With that said, I was able to pick up another iPhone 5 for my sister at a local AT&T store this morning (got the last one left in stock)! Fortunately I lucked out on launch day, as soon as I arrived at the AT&T store, casually strolling in around noon like I owned the place, a FedEx truck carrying a fresh shipment just arrived. I should have played the lotto that day!

I remembered some of his other posts where sarcasm was obvious. It doesn't read well on forums and message boards compared to hearing it. I'm a bit conservative in terms of investment. I hate lop sided things. With Apple, they should be around for a long time. Their stock will reach the previous plateau again as long as growth continues. It doesn't mean they'll be back at $700 soon (it could happen). It matters that you can afford to hold though regardless of where you're buying it. Otherwise the potential is there to lock in losses on an incorrect prediction.

I might have read about a hedge fund that went bankrupt in recent weeks because they put all their money into AAPL when it was close to $700. The reality is that while AAPL might go a little higher the only long term direction for it from here is down.

I'm going to mark this thread as a fail.

I ordered my iPhone online the morning of 13 November, and when I placed my order, estimates (per the store) were 2 - 3 weeks. As I check my order status currently, I show a delivery date of 10 December 2012.

In another note, I went to a local Apple store last weekend to check out the iPad mini, and there was a healthy sized line. I asked what it was all about, and it was for iPhone 5's. Apparently they were expecting a shipment of phone, and people were lined to to get what they could.

I would have gotten an iPhone 5 (32 GB) by now thanks to better phone supply now, but the prices for the cellphone monthly pricing plans are just ungodly expensive for either AT&T or Verizon!

How is the supply in China? Until Apple has enough stock to satisfy US, China and Europe, I'd say the supply is still constrained.

Oh wait, is it still not officially on sale in China?

I preordered mine from my carrier here in Canada on Sept. 14. Picked it up in store on Sept 21. It appears that reseller stores have stock, just not Apple stores.

In other news, Bloomberg surveys 62 analysts with a 12 month average target price of 766.60.

I was being sarcastic, because as is usually the case, pundits will cite this as evidence that no one wants the iPhone.

Waiting for new phones is truly frustrating. Sometimes I want to pull my hair out. (I don't actually pull my hair out though.)

Those who didn't sell at $700/share did
You're right about the buying. Apple's stock has been taking hits from Europe and its lack of iPhone 5 supply. Buying now is still risky because of the whole "fiscal cliff" BS, but it's certainly been hurt by European debt unproportionally and is therefor undervalued.

I was in Las Vegas two weeks ago and you see tons of iPhones there. I only saw 2 5's the whole week. That surprised me.

If you buy the AT&T full price model at the Apple Store and then restore it in iTunes, it unlocks. That is what I did to use it on T-Mobile.

I'm not believing this as well.

Last year with the 4S, you couldn't just walk into stores and buy one until January. I don't expect this year with the 5 to be any different.

I just want to know what happened to the off-contract, unlocked iPhones. It's too much hassle to get a phone with AT&T, sign up for service. Get the phone. Cancel the service. Get them to unlock it. I don't remember the 4 or 4S taking this long to get unlocked, off-contract devices.

Scuff-gate is fiction.

Everybody simply uses a case so that the case built into their iPhone stays pristine. Some cases are very expensive, so people simply put them in a sock to protect the case before they put them in their purse. The socks are cheap enough to simply replace if they get worn, and they keep your expensive iPhone case looking great!
