    So Apple Now Has Three Home Run Products - iPhone 5S, iPad Air, and iPad Mini

    and who knows maybe the 5C will pick up sales, especially if China Mobile gets off the pot and starts selling iPhones in China in less then two weeks. Have to go long Apple here with state of the art products selling like never before.

    • I gave a thumbs up, but I really don't believe it anymore. AAPL just had an amazing quarter, had a bunch of analyst upgrades, and even Cramer was positive. Positive effect on the stock price? Zero.

      Of course, we all know the culprit. The law of large numbers. AAPL has to surpass impossible numbers. The numbers AAPL put up in 2012 (margins, revenue, profit) will probably not be duplicated for many years to come. How is AAPL going to consistenly increase revenue from a base of 60 billion dollars? How many iPads, and iPhones, will it have to sell?

      I own this stock and will add to my position next week. But I know I'll have to wait a year for YoY comps and the accumulated effect of the buybacks to work in AAPL's favor. It will be easier for AAPL to grow from a base of 37 billion in profit, than a base of 41 billion. Wall Street has the memory of a fruit fly.

      Right now, nothing will move this stock higher.

      I agree except for the 5c but two out of three is not bad.
