I post for several reasons, but mostly for laughs as ALL of the trading/ownership here combined is likely less than the smallest 13F total on page 10 of AAPL's quarterly recap.
Still, I'll take your comments as a thanks -- and good for you, go buy yourself a new iphone 5 and ipad mini or the big one. We have 6 i5 phones in the family now and we all see it as a huge advance over the i4 and i4s they replace for us. We also bought each of the kids a mins ipad for under the tree when they all get home for the holidays... but my wife and I will continue to share the coffee table iPad 2 for now as it is fabulous too. Have a great holiday with your family!
As for price by EOY, it may be a bit fuzzy... but the short fund crowd effin around to salvage their 2/20% this year are NOW focused on getting this great story (and stock) running up as hard as they can...
Then, of into the new year and the coming FABULOUS Dec Q earnings call, EVERY PROFESSIONAL MANAGER OUT THERE (VS ONLY ABOUT 3000 AS OF 9/30/12 LOL) WILL WANT TO SHOE THIS IN THEIR 13Gs and 13f filings.
We're going to see at least $800 in 2013 and the regular dividend is going a LOT higher. too... my only question os whether we get above $900 before 2014 without a major repurchase plan.
