    What picks do you like now? I said on the AMZN board...I think to Buy SLV 3 days ago or o when it was around 1840s for a quick play to 19 easy but I was wrong, it was 1930. I then shorted at 1939 and got out of the short. Looking for some others to get into and purchased about 700 of this at 3.95 just to see if we get a good 30-40 cent run before. I know NOTHING about the stock and its the worst way to invest but what the hell. I got my #$%$ handed to me in the last year because the MM's are manipulating so that the retail investor dies.

    Get ready to buy again....I am hoping it goes to about 47 and if it doesn't break it then buy if so buy in the 46's.

  • There always huge drops or jumps and if you time it right, you can easily make a buck or so! Bought 500 shares at 46.70ish and got out and got back in around 47.70 or for 300 adding 250 more to my long term play.

    Actually if you compared the fundamentals and went by the "book" AAPL would be by far the best Investment in that Industry. The problem is that the market is so manipulated by the MM's that there is no logic to the trades. I am no expert and started trading about 10 years ago when I was 20 or so and the first 4 to 5 years, it was actually a game where an educated investor could make some extra money. Whether you went with fundamentals or if you went with what really drives the market, fear and greed! (i.e.shorted builders during housing bust) I am not into consipiracy theories and I am not saying AAPL is a great investment (it is based on fundamentals but they need to innovate bad or they are done and they're losing their cult following) but I think that the big boys are manipulating this market to get rid of the retail investor so that we ALL come to them for investing our monies. I saw something crazy like 60% of the retail investors exited the market since 08 or something like that. Maybe even higher. I loved AMZN until these earnings and I made some good money AH shorting it but I would stay away tomorrow from any play. I should be sitting pretty on my GOOG March Options if that 1180 holds at the Open. I also think SLV could be a good play short term soon. It may go to 18 but I see it hitting 19 within a week.

  • Knowing this company well and their product well. The "cult" following is dying. People are sick of the same phone and if they dont rerlease a much bigger screen for the iphone then you can kiss it goodbye. I actually now own a retina mini, 2 iphone 5s but love my note 8.0 galaxy much better for work and s4 galaxy. I never thought I would say that. They are in desperate need of inventing something and the one item that could save them is a video game system. I also think an Apple TV would be awesome as my TWO favorite products are the actual Apple TV and their computers. I bought 2 new iMac's this year and a macbook pro and I run windows. Their only hope to save the iPhone was China and that didnt help. Steve Jobs really was apple and it kills me to say it but I was wrong for so long on that stock and I am sorry for those of you who took a big hit today. I still own 5 shares of it but I own at $505.00 a share. Good Luck to the Longs and truly is a sad day. The future is GOOGLE and AMAZON.
