I hope you are right but the issues are different now. AAPL sales are not likely to be great due to the Sandy impact in several states, iOS vs. Android Q3 data is looking very much in favor of Android, also the internal shake up in AAPL can not be discounted, election may have short term impact, the so called fiscal cliff will be another topic right after the election. I see 5-8% corrcection for overall market. AAPL bounce back may not be that quick, let's see what happens next week.GL
I agree things are different this time,but we also have some more positives. New product in iPad mini, new iPhone, new Mac book and new line of iMacs coming out after two years almost, a dividend payable of almost 2% for shareholders on record 11/12/12, should report first weekend iPad mini sales on Monday, and they have $120 Billion in cash and no debt. Wild card is still a 10 for 1 split and entry into the Dow. To me the good out weigh any bad things.
It is very apparent you 2 are newbies in the market. "Past stock performance is not indicative of future results." Jesse Livermore quote. In other words, Just because AAPL "behaved" a certain way in the past does not mean future movement will be repeated. Charts and past performance are only used to SPECULATE. DISCLOSURE: small position at $581.
