AAPL has now joined the likes of MSFT, YAHOO, QCOM and others slow moving stocks
All these stocks have something in common, NO GROWTH, thus slow movers, if you are in AAPL now, you must be a baby boomer about to retire because thats the only type of people that need that dividend, lol
didn't you get the memo to front run the "risk off" trade "sell in may and go away" and rotate into mega cap multinational shareholder friendly value plays like microsoft and apple in the last days of april?
You can't fool me, nor can you fool anyone else and AAPL can't do the same neither. AAPL has 150 billion in cash, 100 billion that is overseas that has yet to be repatrioted and the 50 billion is now locked up in debt to pay out money to the shareholders because they want the company to pay them. This now means that AAPL does not have ANY Money left over for anything as its 100 billion is tied up in savings for bills, there is no free cash and also it was always Steve Jobs plan to keep a 4th of the company's market cap in cash to allow to pay its bills. so essentially, now you have a company with no cash because all the cash is allocated elsewhere and its revenues are slowing dramatically, AAPL will not get back to 500 range for the next 5 years possibly because it takes time for new products to be saturated to the market, if they become popular enough for people to buy.
