Apple Computers (APPL) crosses the $20/share mark!

Setting a 52 week high TODAY, Apple Computer briefly crossed the $20/share mark and is still hovering in the high $19/share range. This is the highest that Apple stock has been in WELL OVER a year.

As recently as May, Apple was barely above the $13/share mark representing more than a 50% raise in stack value in about 2 months.

Not bad at all when your bank account is gaining about 1% ANNUALLY these days!?!

Yeah, saw that today - unfortunately my Apple stock was purchased at around $21-$22 - so I'm still hoping.....

Good for Apple though!

This is great news! I bought Apple stock a couple of months ago and it's gone up about 18-19% since then. Too bad I didn't buy that many shares. Hopefully the G5s will be very popular and push up the stock even higher! (for poor Mr. Anderson )

Apples stock pretty much followed the rise of the Nasdaq in general today. I hope it will stick arund $20 but wouldn't count on it. There will probably be a correction in the next week or so and the Nasdaq and apple will slip back.

Shipping G5s and ITMS for windows will do a lot more for apples stock then a one day bubble.

Mmmm, I still have some that I bought at 61$, I'll have to wait (and hope) a long time
But of course I also bought some at 16$, so that for the moment I'm almost break-even

I think we're already experiencing the long-awaited recovery of the stock market. we may actually be moving into a real bull market and the momentum is a pretty good indicator (although there could be corrections).

Well, at least the stock that you bought at $61 has split 2 for 1 since then so you really bought it at $30.50 (with relation to the current value). You're getting closer now to your original value.

Also, as to the "one day high" comment earlier, Apple stock has consistently went up almost every day since May. I was not saying that it has went up just today. It has been a steady climb from the $13+ range to the $20 range.

Well I will continue to kick myself over the fact that I did not sell when they hit $150. I could have made $5000 off 35 shares

If you picked EXACTLY the right time BUT you'd have 70 fewer shares now OR only $2500 to show for your 35 sold shares (the stock split 1 for 2 since the stock value was around $150/share).

Actually I bought them at $121 before the stock split, so that would make around $61 now
But I only bought 50 of them...
And the last year I bought hundreds more at a lower rate!

So you would have "made" about $900 on your $3600 investment. Not too shabby but way to have LONG TERM faith in Apple. Now let's hope you were not wrong to hold onto the stock afterall.
