hope and gesh: buy Apple stock, please trade accordingly !!
Does anyone care that "quite" is different from "quiet" ?? If someone uses "quite", I think they are a dunce and I ignore anything they post.
cuz there's lots of 12-21 year olds who have grown up with Apple being cool. Lots of wealthy parents will buy it for their daughters.........we gots more disposable income cuz of lower gas prices making this discretionary purchase very easy to swallow.
ya, up big today and 36 cents from 52 week high........ on no news that I can find. I hoped someone on the message board could bring news.......... even speculation would be nice.
nothing but advertising for 8 days. If Yahoo can put spam e-mails in my e-mail spam folder, I don't understand why they can't prevent these postings as well. this message board (as well as others).............ugh !! useless
"no meaningful catalyst"..... R U just pulling my chain? did you see the latest report on phone sales in China? Ya know......the Chinese New Year? biggest gift giving event in China? China largest cell phone market? I-phone sales are the LEADING seller in China (reported today)? You're joking with me, right?
I'm just a lurker here, but I find j0n's postings to be honest and insightful. He's bullish. So what do you expect? don, I don't know why you criticize him......... From a lurker's standpoint, I have no problem with j0n.
I've been lurking on this board for over 2 years. This "theory" has been mentioned many, many times on this board. I see no reason to challenge those who have posted before me. Granted, I have cherry picked the Friday-Mondays for my own benefit, but it WAS the only 2 times that I have done this.
Apple stock is my largest holding. I own 1000 shares. On both occasions, I bought and sold 100 shares, so I made very little profit. This was just a kind of fun experiment. again, not scientific.
There has been much speculation on this board about Max Pain and someone manipulating the Apple stock price so that options would expire worthless on Fridays. There have also been unconfirmed reports saying that Apple goes down on Friday 70% of the time.
My first experiment was documented in a posting on or about Monday Feb 9th. I bought 100 shares late Friday (2/6) at 118.71 and sold on Monday (2/9) at 119.80. I did this again buying on this past Friday (2/27) at 128.82 and selling this morning when I got up at 129.76. I know this is unscientific and proves nothing, but it's kind of interesting to try to profit off of this. Vanguard charges me only $2 per trade..... Granted, I did not make much money in this experiment, but.........
blue: thanks for the laugh !!
