S&P 500 just stuck it's head above water and went positive, but the trading after 1:45pm will be the end all of all say, so far typical Friday, we are not Short the market index yet, but we are not betting heavy it's going up either
ok now we are talking, since we agree that there are other stocks with more of a chance to outperform AAPL, what stock symbol and what price did you enter?
sound fair to us, can't argue having some AAPL, we are not adding to our position but that's cuz we think we have enough shares for now
we also find it interesting that it's Friday and the market is not up yet and we have entered the do-not-trade-lunch-hour from 12:00-Noon-1:45pm-time-zone, AEA could be right
see our S&P 500 comment today, AAPL also already had big move up from post-split-day, a pause that refreshes if you will
Hello Cheapy, you and Franky Cranky still beatin' that Short Drum since AAPL 400? Sorry to hear that, AAPL run up 300 points to record high, but what's 300 point loss on you puny 300 shares? for you it's 3 years salary after tax...lol
we held NFLX in an overweighted position but have not added to it in a very long time, we will be recalculating whether we will hold into the entire position or be letting some go, stay tuned
we can't speak for AEA on AAPL but unless the commods go down and volatility on the stock market index rises then a bigger stock index turn can't take place, but if it does take place then you don't want to be is any short-term-trade whether it be AAPL or any other stock until the indicators bottom and then you can buy anything you like... market is still at fair value, it had index hiccup past few weeks but came back up again, very possible to repeat itself again, don't be shocked if it does
if the S&P 500 takes out yesterday's-high then it can easily hit the 2000-level first the first time in history
we were big proponents of AAPL all the way from 350 to 700, then we saw competition, now if you think that is bad mouthing then you shouldn't read out posts, we thought it was a very realistic scenario, we said it was just a phone or a pad,which we group together and labeled it a "handset" for easy purpose of unit calculation since pricing for both were very close in price-point...
what's with all the cranking on FunnieBucket, we got it right and shorted 705 the first go around and everyone has short memory, then we at the 400-mark decided to cover short and we maintained a much lighter position all the way up to highs again, we did add a trade at 398, 416, and 441 but it was much less significant in size compared to the main shares we held, but we also explained why we were lighter in shares compared to the first run to 700, now if that is bashing AAPL to you then you are not going to fit in with us as per discussions, it's no big deal, just go to the group of message board talkers that fit your mold in the inflexible way you see it and let FunnieBucket be, there is no harm in taking your own thesis, we will be the first to tell you to do as you please...
...as for us here at FunnieBucket we still see competition as the main problem for AAPL, now if you don't like that then don't, we offer that as free, but don't confuse the fact that we still own some shares cuz we think that AAPL can still get it's share of the pie in the handset market, it still can be part of a nutritious breakfast portfolio, and will participate as an index holding... don't make this any harder than it has to be...
Peter Lynch once said if you can't put your thesis into a language worded in a way a 3rd-grader can't understand then you have complicated your system of investing
we are not AEA, we sometimes see things differently, but most of the time see similar, what's it to you anyway, no one makes you read this stuff, change the TV channel if you don't like the program
we sorry we didn't want this question to scare you off, we know how hard it is for you to commit to a recorded message that everyone sees
our S&P 500 stance today is very easy to understand, we will tell so in next paragraph but first need to catch you up on what we did with S&P 500 while we were away on vacation... we exited Long at 1982 and went Short, then Covered Short a little late at 1951 and went Long there, but we are now raising the caution flag and have lighted/hedged our index Longs...
for today only... if volatility returns to the market and commods drop below their neutral-zone then we will exit all index Longs and go Short the index...
and now you are up to speed after us being gone on vacation for more than a month
no, we are saying that if u ask us about another stock, for example, AMZN, we will tell you if we hold it or not, and tell you if we are overweight it or not, we are not here to talk tongue in cheek, we here just to offer it as free
we will take stock ticker symbol you all ask and tell you if we own it or not...
best way to get advise is not to ask for it but rather ask what they own or what they are in as this speaks volumes of how they really feel about an investment whether it be trade or longer-term
we still hold AAPL but not nearly the amount we had from the first run from 200 to 700, we would not buy AAPL to add to our position here, but we don't want to sell our shares that we hold either, we want to maintain a slight overweight AAPL compared to the rest of our portfolio, we make it simple and easy to read post, there are no gimmicks at FunnieBucket...
we will post our S&P 509 thoughts soon
welcome back to everyone, it's the first day of the rest of your life
