Apple Inc. Message Board

    There's a really great article online that all Apple shareholders should read before investing in Apple stock...Google Search "Rise and Fall of Lucent Technologies". It's an outstanding article. The similarities between Apple and Lucent are strikingly familiar. In the article it shows the evolution of a leader and how it went from leader to cheap change in about 1 years time. Things change, markets change, people's shopping trends change and technologies change, and competitors come and go. There's alot at risk for Apple this quarter. I'm not sure the earnings news is in the stock just yet.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • Lucent wasn't a consumer brand. Comparing it to Apple doesn't work. A better comparison may be Sony.

      • The comparison I was making wasn't the type of companies Apple and Lucent are or what market they serve. The comparison was solely focussed on stock price activity and how the most hyped of stocks seem to all have that moment in time when they drop the ball and blow it. And that's when their stock price gets hit. It happened with Lucent, with IBM, and with Apple in the 90s and with Microsoft and with all the banks. Every winner at some point becomes a loser. They can also bounce back after their decline from stardom. I wouldn't entirely write off Apple however I do urge everyone on this board to pick up a few Samsung products, especially the Galaxy phone and enjoyh the absolutely gorgeous user interface. SAMSUNG ROCKS BABY!
