I'm loving it! Just wish I had more.
I just wish I had bought a ton of it a year ago.
Apple will one day be king of capital
Many, many moons ago after Steve left, err, was asked to leave, I bought quite a few shares when it bottomed out much to the snickers of my then friends. Guess who is snickering now?
Probably your friends, because (assuming you haven't sold it yet) it has contributed $0 to your income.
Some day instead of voting democrat or republican we will be voting Google or Apple!!!
You realise if he has any real number of them he could sell them on now at utterly vast profits?
Yes? But until the shares are sold and taxed it's retarded to say that you've made money off of them (because you haven't), or that anyone should be jealous. You can't spend or save money you don't have.
I've sold a few shares here and there, but still have a "few" more. I also bought many shares of Ford stock when it hit a low of just over a buck last year and now is in the $11.00 range. But I have also bought shares of stock and lost some buckaroos, can you say Palm Inc?
Same. I actually think Ford is going to recover quite nicely; they've gone through the motions better than most other companies.
I'm pretty sure anyone who has dabbled in the stock market has a story like this
I'd short an option just out of money for a few months, incase ipad sales cool. Since expectations are already built into the price
Ever heard of dividends?
I currently have a stop loss set on my Apple shares. Just don't want it to take a temp dip down to $200 again and not to take profit. I wish I had it setup last time it took a big dip (down to $190).
Apple doesn't pay dividends.
Clearly the market views the iPad as a massive failure. Oh, and we all know that iPhone sales have been slowing down, and this price reflects the markets understanding of that failure too. Oh, and Mac Pros and MacBook Pros are grossly out-of-step with the market, so the market is punishing Apple for this.
What? You mean if I read it in the MacRumors forums it isn't necessarily reality?
Back in 2003 when I started buying a little stock, Apple was at $80/share. I couldn't buy enough shares to justify the purchase, so I didn't. MAN, I wish I had $1,000 to drop on that back in the day.
I was saying to someone recently actually how I wish I had bought Apple shares when they went low. If I had the money to invest in a significant amount of them I'd be a millionaire now, with a Rolls-Royce instead of a crummy Vauxhall!
Those who got in on the price drop to $193 right after the iPad was announced are doing a mini-happy dance.
Long time fan since I owned the Power PC 7200. I thought that it was so different than the PC that I became a fan right then. Bought some shares of Apple @ $18 before the split. Haven't touched it since!
I was stupid and waited and had to buy it at $40 and could only afford 10 shares. Then it split and now has skyrocketed...
really? AAPL is not performing NEAR as well as many other stocks for the last year.....Hell look at Ford...a 5x increase vs Apples' 2-3x increase
I got in at $200 which isn't too bad, wish it could have been lower.
Ever heard of Apple?
