    Looking at this in a financial perspective. Is the resignation of Steve Jobs the best time to buy Apple stocks? As i'm doubting the stocks will drop any further in the near future.

    I think that the stocks will drop for a bit and rebound once some new magical Apple stuff is released. The fact that Jobs is still sorta onboard might give investors a reason not to drop all their shares right away.

    I never bought stocks but I'm interested now. I'm sure it's a wise decision, but just have no clue for how long is the stock supposed to go down before it goes back up again. A day? A week? A month?

    Somebody with a little experience with this care to share his advice?

    buying shares is like gambling in a casino or buying lottery tickets , simple as that , only start buying shares or gambling if you can take a loss too without hurting yourself , so investing all your income on shares and live on baked beans and toast for the next years if you lost your money is not a great idea
    buying some shares from Apple for sentimental reasons is alright
    but never been a great idea to buy lottery tickets from your overdraft and hope you win ..if you know what i mean


    so only invest what you dont mind to lose

    "if it were easy to determine (or guess) a stocks prime entry point -then most investors would be millionaires..." - s.k.m.

    personally - i have done well trading in and out of aapl for a period of time

    and i do have stategies and tactics for my trades - but i get paid to manage investors money using my methods

    i will say - in the investing world - if it sounds too good to be true - then it is too good to be true

    my other advice is - to mentor with an experienced and trusted investor for awhile before you invest your hard earned cash

    remember - investing your hard earned cash - is not a game

    There really hasn't been a bad time to buy AAPL in the last 10 years. Future is uncertain but it still looks bright for AAPL.

    The issue is how much higher can the stock go before crashing back down to earth. You buy today then you'll need to hope that apple's performance can drive the price even higher. I'm no investing guru but I do know what goes up must come down. I'd personally stay away from apple stock at the price its trading at now.

    Buy low, sell high. I just thought that up myself. Pretty clever, huh? :rolleyes: ;)

    Well anaylst expect the stock to go as high as $520. No whether you believe that or not is what the stock market is all about. I for one would like to see a split to make easier for someone besides huge firms to invest heavily into the company.

    Right now the stock market is yo-yo'ing and will probably continue to do so for a while. So if you are going to dive in you obviously want to do it when the whole market plunges and APPL drops a couple of percentage points. Over the next year we will see the release of iPhone 5, increasing exposure to the China and India markets, and the next generation of iPad which may be a major leap. The stock market still is the best place for long term investing and those who do not need cash now or who do not depend on profits for day-to-day living, i.e, retirees. FWIW.
