    Unfortunately I can, if Christmas sales are low like people are predicting in retail they could hit some big lows in Jan.

    Getting caught up in the market troubles, not due to the bubble bursting or the rocket ride blowing up -- at least not yet.

    Don't know who will take over for the big funds, which might be a problem, and slow a rise back up.

    Still great fundamentals, in a rocky market.

    Can see it happening easily. Even with the major collapse in the market I think AAPL is quite overpriced, in terms of both Mkt Cap to Equity and P/E Ratio, most technology companies tend to have this advantage though, so realistically it's in the middle of the pack. The real question is whether there will be a psychological collapse when people realize that they've greatly overvalued AAPL.

    With the way the company is going right now, I wouldn't be surprised. They have flopped quite a bit recently, relative to where they would bring out new products and everyone would be completely shocked.

    I really hope not. I bought at $88. Hopefully It could go back to the $200 that it was at.:(

    And people have been saying exactly that about Apple since the 1970s ;) Apple's products are always "worse than they used to be"... which no doubt explains how we got to the current amazing lineup :p

    Not so sure about that. There was a hiigh steep climb in the earlier 2000s. Now, after every keynote, I am not surprised to see stocks fall lower. This wasn't the case when they made the switch to intel and whatnot.

    That's not correct--Apple's doing better now by far than in the early 2000s.

    10 years ago, Apple were trading just over 2 dollars. Even with the recent steep drop in share prices, you are still looking at almost a 4,000% increase in share value over the 10 years, which is a phenomenal performance
    Of course, if you'd bought at 2 dollars and sold at 200, you'd have made even more money, but that's the way of the market...

    I can see Apple stock hitting $40 or even a tad lower (high $30's) ...

    What baffles me is that Google was sitting on $600 a share 7, 8 months ago and now sits on $262+ ...
