Would WB and CM be willing to buy so much of AAPL at today’s prices? Probably not. They are up significantly from their initial positions. Being willing to ‘hold’ a stock you already own and is up a lot, is a lot different from being willing to ‘buy’ they same stock, at the current price.
Talking about those two, they are holding huge amounts of cash (something like $100 billion) ready to pounce after the next major stockmarket crash.
According to this, BH holds more CASH than it does in Apple stock. Take the blinkers off and what does that tell you?
I bought shares in a company in early Feb at 30p, now valued over £3.00.Can’t help but gloat a little... I’ve been watching how my AAPL stock’s been doing...
Was I the only one in this thread who called AAPL a buy?
I’m looking at the dates on this thread, and it looks like I jumped in a little late without realizing it. The OP was on Feb 4 when the stock price was ~$320. I chimed in on Feb 4 when the price was ~$280. Today the price is at a massive $455! An excellent buy no matter when you bought in February!

I’ve had more than one win recently. Gold, silver, palladium mining stocks (and physical bullion too). COVID stocks and Biotechs are big atm too.Well, it was good of you to report your one supposed win, after the fact...
Next time you go fishing, please let us know before hand. I might want to go with you.

edit: I don’t think the mods would allow me to name any, but PM me of you wish. If you do, I advise everyone to do their own research too 👍🏻
Everything I said in my first post in this thread (post #4) has happened, except the tech bubble hasn’t burst yet, though the Fed is buying up stocks so prices are more inflated than they should be.i guess I was too vague with the joke. I was just poking a little fun cause you couldn’t just eat crow over having made a bad call on AAPL. The fishing reference was the old cliche joke about how big the fish was they caught that they never showed you, etc.., etc..
In investing we all make bad calls occasionally though. It’s not a big deal.
And there have been plenty of winners in the last few months. I’m sure you do have some wins in your portfolio.
Use a stockbroker! If you are UK based there are a few to choose from. I use Hargreaves Lansdown (HL). You can use the desktop website, or phone up if you prefer, or use the app on your iPhone.Just out of curiosity, how would one go about buying shares in the UK?
