Another clueless retail fundamentals peddler. As an investor, i believe in "fundamentals". But if you think you can continue to preach a low P/E for this stock, discounting everything that's been going on around the trading days, then you are in for some SERIOUS hurts (IF you've an investor, that is.) This stock is heading for some BIG head winds, not the least of which is the upcoming Jan 18 options expiry. Beyond that, we're looking at some margin and rev contraction going into 2014, which the hedgers will use to utmost advantage. Unfortunately, the upcoming qtr 1 earnings call is going to be a bit of a flop, because all the REALLY GOOD numbers that'll be reported have been baked in. That's where the guidance will come in, and there we will see to what extend this will be fodder for the traders.
If you feel you want to game the earnings, then get OUT of the stock now (if you're in), line up some more cash, and move AFTER the 18th, since q1 earnings are on the 27th.
You don't know what you are talking about.
Apple had a blowout quarter and earnings will come in above $60B with $14.20-35 per share.
Guidance will be raised based on Asia now and analysts will have no choice but to upgrade their targets on the stock.
Saying it is all baked in is lunacy ....
