re AAPL pullback
possible buy on dip entry points IMHO
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
"will worrying change the outcome?... " - kwai chang caine
stay thirsty my friends
I bought some more this week at 367, all aboard for the next ride up
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. 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 last time Apple was $69 was September 2006...wasnt the recession in Late 2007 - Early 2008?
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.

aapl appox 382
dang pretty good up 5% for the week of infamous jobs step down
I still have mine at $11.24.
Wow.... That is a hell of a purchase. Even bigger is what you have today..
$16 1/2 in 1996. Thought about buying more when it went down to $9...didn't...
Retired at 60, still hold 100.
Well they've bounced back.
interesting move today
approx 14 point spread
started negative with good upwards movement to close
approx ave volume
feelin good about this move - near term
watch out for high vix though in general market
knocking on 400
positive bias - near term
vix still high as a caution
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
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
"Don't Answer Me..." - Alan Parsons Project - Ammonia Avenue - 1984
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
