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 !!
me, too. so much for diversification. 59% of my stock portfolio is Apple. Ya know, the positive catalysts have been really obvious for 3-4 months now. I'm just an avg guy, but it seemed ' a no brainer ' for me. I feel vindicated.
I agree. I think Apple should have a commercial showing the security advantages of Apple Pay. I don't think the general public is aware of it with Apple Pay..... but they ARE aware of various retailers security breaches.
Apple is in the middle of a big run-up......please trade accordingly........HA !!!
hey, where are all the hilarious posts? I use this message board for entertainment. There used to be a lot of funny sheep related posts? where did they go? (I'm long and enjoying this immensely!)
