    People hedging their bets that Google announces something big. Watch for lots of short sells at the end of the day before closing bell. If the stock takes a hit in after hours trading, expect a huge drop to come.
    If Google meets expectations and has some new opportunities/hardware/new business partners and so on, then it is easy to see Google reaching the magic $1000 barrier. The one that everyone was saying Apple would reach. Apple is lucky to be slightly above $400 right now!

    I wouldn't go as far as to say it would be a huge drop, as nobody is expecting a major announcement today. That said, I'm ecstatic at the growth of the stock. $_$!!! :-D

    Yap, and meanwhile aapl is down more than 3%.

    Sorry to Apple fans, but Google seems to have a brighter future.

    Based solely on the stock price? That's shallow.

    Sigh. It makes no sense. Google played catch up today and its stock goes up. I guess it's lack of Apple products this year. Either way, Android isn't much of a threat this coming year it seems. I'd watch for W8. They get some good devs and they could skyrocket.

    You also have to realize though that Google launched a new product, their streaming music service. So they're adding to their portfolio. And with changes to Maps, Chrome, and other products, they aren't remaining stagnant in development. It was mentioned a few times that Chrome was the most popular web browser (I didn't think it was true compared to IE), but their changes are only going to grow their user base. Same goes for Maps, despite Maps is probably in the lead compared to the alternatives.

    And don't forget about Pixel and Glass. Pixel has really just launched and its adoption will continue to grow. Glass has gotten pretty fair reviews and it has not even officially launched. We have no clue what Apple will or will not do this year. But Google independently is growing very fast and expanding their portfolio.

    Apple is down this week because the #1 hedge fund manager on Wall Street dumped all his Apple stock, as did his company I believe. That's 42000 shares sold and in the wind. Gonna make more stock holders nervous. The sell off of Apple stock will probably reach $250 before stabilizing.

    That's a big gamble for him with WWDC coming up. Meh, not my money.

    What is Apple gonna bring out this year to excite people? Possibly something, but what we do know is come the fall we will see identical looking iPhones and iPads as we have seen for the last couple of years. iOS 7, supposedly with its "flat" (very Android-like Holo) theme, is just a visual change, plus more copying of Android apps like we have seen in ios5 and ios6.

    Not much for a anyone to get excited about. The stocks are just doing what most people are thinking when it comes to Apples future. And the answer is to dump it.

    ----------

    Not much of a gamble for him. Wall Street has named a day of the week after the guy. Any time he speaks on a Tuesday morning, the stock market has gone up for 18 consecutive Tuesdays. Hence, Tepper Tuesday.

    This guys take home pay last year was north of 2 billion (with a B)!

    Google may not make any money on new services, it remains to be seen, their business model is completely different.

    Google's P/E ratio is 27.27 btw, so a fair bit inflated it seems.

    Because Apple has shown to be incredibly predictable since 2010. The 5s will look identical to the 5, and other than a stretch, identical to the 4s and 4. Same with the ipad. The iPad 2, 3, and 4 all the same. All you can look forward to a slight bump in specs.

    ----------

    Inflated compared to Apple's you mean. Apple's P/E has always been incredibly under what it should have been... Until now, anyway.

    So, you don't known anything for certain. You are just speculating based on previous history. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    Well, yeah and other companies with low to moderate evaluation. The P/E gives a measure of a stock price related to earnings, a P/E of 27.27 is considered high. One way to look at it is that the stock price is not in relation to the earnings of the company, ie it's over valued.


    Funny that you say that, guess you were never one of those who thought that Apple was over valued.

    Being someone that knows practically nothing about the stock market. Is Apple and Google comparable?

    I understand Android is in competition with iOS but isn't Apple a hardware company and Google an search engine/ad company?

    Or are we just comparing them because of iPhones and Android phones?
