Until you do you shouldn't be buying, selling or trading any stocks including AAPL.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Actually, you shouldn't be trading until you understand at least the basic of technical analysis.
I think noobs shouldn't come close to AAPL. This stock is beyond ones understanding. It goes up, down, then up for no reason and then down. Only the day trading monkeys benefit these swings.
Actually, you should be trading anytime you feel like it.
It's your money and it's still a free country, or so Obama says.
