    • AAPL is free money for me and anyone who bought it back before the last couple splits. Its meant a 800% return since I bought it 4 or 5 years ago.

      Why sell now just when they are starting to make some interesting decisions with the new intel chips? Granted the ipod market is probably peaked for them, and their online song business probably won't show much growth - but they continue to do interesting things. Even though the huge profit looks nice, I'm not going to sell just to make a few speculative margin trading shorts feel better.

      Worried about a point here and a point there, not hardly, want to see whats going to happen over the next 2 or 3 years with them. Guess I'm a turtle, a highly profitable turtle.

    • Sleepless nights? When I'm all cash every night? I sleep like a baby, happy dreams every night. I have no mortgage. And I pay my accountant 375 flat...my year of trades is a simple TurboTax input, the whole year is done in minutes. Commissions are sometimes high if I scalp too often...but profits cover them...and I'll never wake up to see my accounts down a penny.
      Cash is still king. Especially now.
      If a bull returns, I'll invest and stay long...but that's a waaaaays off right now...
      Long term is great for cap gains (if there are any)...love your company and be happy...but why love the stock so much?
      And why so touchy? I haven't insulted anyone here all day...but the longs keep shooting at me. I'm just trying to help in the way I wish someone had helped me when I was starting.
      If you can't be gentlemanly while you're losing...then you are in the wrong game.
      If earnings are great, I'll be long. I'm here to make money.
      What are you here for?
      Good luck.

    • exactly Cliff.
      we have diff time horizons.

      You want to make your money over the long term, then the best of luck to you. It doesn't mean your investment strategy is "the one" to follow. Whatever your returns are for holding tight, then good for you.

      If I choose to buy-sell within minutes, hrs, days, wks, or mths, then that is "my" trading strategy. Yes, I'll hold for the short term and lock in my gains.

      It doesn't mean i don't "understand" what being Long is. I just don't choose that as my trading strategy. To each his own.

      Word of advice. Nothing goes up forever. Excellent companies with great growth prospects have stalled after having spectacular runs to the upside (Msft, Dell, Ebay, Yhoo, etc) If you were long on those stocks for the past year, all you saw was the stock price trading in a narrow range or declining.

      Sometimes, Cliff, you fall in love with a stock when in fact you shouldn't be Long on the stock anymore. If this is all about timing, then who knows if AAPL's time has come.

    • Perhaps you should understand the meaning of "long". It means long term. I can assure you that in the long term, there is no insanity among us longs. So you do your daytrading, and pay your taxes, and pay your accountant, and have your sleepless nights and wonder who really is the insane one.

    • Thank you, sir. I really do feel for longs here...I've fallen in love with companies and forgotten that the market is for making money a few times myself. Apple is a smart bunch...but the stock is a mess, and getting messier by the minute.
      We're at a quivering market top here. All the signs are clear. Plus oil, Iran, Iraq, global warming (I know, it's a lie...it's only 100 here today in mid-April...yesterday broke the record by FIVE degrees!), the dollar is a mess, the government is spending and printing like the crooks they are, we're leveraged over our heads in housing, the war for no purpose is costing us hundreds of billions, and on and on.
      This is no market to be long in. It's a market to be in cash every night, hunting for likely suspects each morning.
      Right now aapl is looking very suspect.
      Uh oh...200dma on the horizon...how long can it bounce off that?
      If it goes through like a hot falling knife through butter...58 is not far off.
      Longs, sell and buy back when it bottoms.
      Even .50 won't be enough to take this near its peak of 86.
      Think it over.
      Good luck to all.

    • "Ifs" are so easy to play with....

      Sure....what "if" AAPL raises guidance...AAPL will explode up, right?

      But there's a flip side to this game. What "IF" AAPL lowers guidance, then where are you bud?

      Don't get me wrong. I'm a huge fan of AAPL and its stock, but this poster made a good point.

    • OH MY! gappy you are doing good here.
      When are you covering?
