Recently, it does seem that the huge number of desperate Apple-hating paid bashers has been somewhat reduced. Perhaps some of the paid bashers have been let go.
Apple stock now greatly appeals to a wide variety of investors and traders: Growth investors, Momentum traders, Mobile tech investors, Large-cap investors, Value investors, Index funds, Buy-and-hold investors, hedge funds, Tech stock investors, Balanced funds, GARP investors, pension funds, Technical traders, Growth-and-dividend investors, Moat investors, Innovation investors, Global stock investors, Dividend stock investors, mutual funds, Margin-of-Safety investors, Consumer electronics investors, etc.
And the nervous shorties eventually have to buy back almost 28 Million shares of Apple stock ($12.3 Billion worth), Furthermore, Apple's announced buyback still has $44 Billion more to go (another 100 Million shares of Apple stock). So that's an additional 128 Million shares of buying demand for Apple stock.
And just think of how much additional buying demand for Apple stock will emerge when the innovative Apple starts announcing and introducing new iDevices, iServices, and even new revolutionary iProduct categories throughout 2013 and 2014.
And then consider all of the forthcoming Apple stock upgrades from the better-late-than-never Wall Street tech stock analysts which will begin happening on a regular basis once Apple begins announcing and introducing new iStuff throughout 2013 and 2014.
✔ And then think about what will happen to Apple's stock price when the Financial Media (including CNBC) suddenly changes its tune and starts favorably talking about Apple. [ALREADY STARTING TO HAPPEN]
The accounts of the paid bashes have been closed by their brokerages following the earnings report on Tuesday.
They have all been given final notices to deposit funds to cover their losses or face legal action.
Yes, it has been very boring last couple days. I suspect they were moved to a different stock. I wish I knew where. I'd like to visit those boards. Can anybody find out where they went? One thing I'll say, their bashing and Apple down trend were in sync, until 3 months ago. So whoever is doing this, are pretty good at doing the shorting. We have to find out which MB.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Notice how this socially inept poseur is always online on Friday afternoon. No friends or co workers to party hard with at a bar for this goof ball. "Duh...where the paid bashers...duh."
