    re AAPL pullback

    possible buy on dip entry points IMHO

    350

    310

    300 and below = a bag of hurt

    why is < 300 a bag of hurt. From what I've learned you don't watch the day to day prices but you're in it for the long haul.

    Of course if you purchased apple stock recently you did so at its height and it may not have too much room to continue going up even in the long term.

    300 or below would demonstrates massive technical breakdown of price support - near term
    though all stock action tactics are time dependent and behavioral
    everyone should do their own due diligence
    "time stand still..." - rush

    It's only a bag of hurt if you bought it for above $300 and were dumb enough to cash out below $300. Unless/until you do that, you haven't actually lost anything.

    Relax, it is rebounding from the takers and panic sellers, all is well. +14.47 just today alone, this is still Apple, and it's headed for 500, I jumped in at 69.35 at the start of the recession with 1000 shares, I am very happy;)

    pretty good aapl not falling below 350 after jobs step down news
    good sign - near term
    cooler heads seem to be prevailing
    calling 350 near term support

    I'd say today/tomorrow will be prime time to buy. With Steve Jobs's retiring, the stock is bound to dip (Or at least not go higher as much as it would have with him still as CEO). Then, with the upcoming release of the iPhone 5/iPod event (Which, as we all know, WILL happen), their stocks are going to go up.

    If I had money, I'd buy some.

    Most of the float is owned by big AUM funds who won't be dumping at the news, there is not going to be any selloff so no buying on the dip.

    Wow, congrats. :D I purchased some at $90 a couple years ago, then sold at $160 thinking it was topped. Live and learn I suppose. ;)

    Can anyone speculate as to why the stock hasn't split? Tech stocks seem to be willing to hang out in the higher price range (GOOG@524, AMZN@193) but once AAPL starts pushing $400, it seems to get out of reach for the average kid looking to invest a bit of cash.

    Cuz Steve and/or his CFO don't want it to split. That simple.

    I can't picture Steve sitting behind his desk with a pouty face and his arms crossed, yelling "I don't wanna!"

    But maybe you're right, and it is that simple. :)

    The stock isn't stagnate. It's still going up. If it stagnates, Apple could choose to split it to jump start it again. But right now there's no reason to do so given how successful it's been. Glad I still have my stock I got at $19.

    Never traded in single digits in that timeframe, lowest was about $12 which it bounced off a couple times. Was during that time I first started watching/buying Aapl.

    Of course, 2 splits since then so that 1 share at $12 is now 4 shares at $400 with a $3 basis. Nice to see it close back over $400 again :)

    re 9-28-11

    slightly lower bias going into oct 4 media event

    predict mediocre ip4s type - not redesigned ip5

    vix still high - naz wandering in zombie-like state

    x= caution going into oct 18 earnings report

    may want to create tactical stops

    if aapl breaks higher = its all good

    if not - protect yourselves

    in my humble opinion

    re aapl 10/10/11 10:31 @ 384.05

    if you got some aapl last week between 360-370 - you are good - short term - barring any market collapse

    1 million ip4s pre-orders - a big plus
