Last qtr earnings were weaker than expected and aapl sold off and people convinced the market, it was a fluke.. dont worry, buy buy buy... so it came back. Apple is losing market share to other tablet makers who sell their tablets for half what apple sells their for. I paid $280 for mine plus $25 for a cover, and love it. I couldnt see paying $800 for a similar apple product. I have a Acer 500, but Samsung makes a darn good product that Apple is complained copied theirs and too similar.
I like AAPL myself .. looking to buy .. but lower. It does pay almost a 2% dividend, but I think the selling for taxes isnt over yet. pe now 12, shows 9 next year.. so long term it looks like a buy, but Im waiting. futures are down tonight, so so far, apple sells off more at open unless things turn around.
