Today apple (appl) closed at $32.74 per share...when I suggested it was going up and if you had confidence in the company's growth, but the stock now....I got a lot of negative feedback. Had you bought 500 shares when I suggested it you would have a paper profit of $1500...enough for a new iMac. Negative people are generally not winners in the stock market. Apple is a very sucessful technology company...it is no small feat to beat Sony Electronics in the market of personal electronics but Apple has about a 75 share of that market. Who do you know that has eaten Sony's lunch in the last 15 years?
