IO know up almost 1% on a down day, but then it was down yesterday on an up day. I hold long term, the 2 year chart is 80 - 118, so another two years it will be 160 miniomum to as high as 200, just show patience. I also hold from over 10 years ago and that chart is even better!
I think we will get a pop after singles day and then move to 100 next year, but then why is it going down? You say higher only , but we have lost 5 points this past 5 days.
You would think. If they post blow out singles day we are bound to get a pop. Maybe investors are nervous about only meeting or missing the numbers, but I have a feeling it will be huge.
Regardless, I think we are very safe on these two stocks right now, but that would be nice to have a quick run up.
All this momentum and a strong holiday season coming this stock will move higher long term ,no doubt. Shorts will have to cover at some point on the way up.I suppose the iPhone an Mac and watch, etc. could drop off, and then the stock takes a hit, but the chance of that seems so low at this point, I don't know how a short can take that kind of risk. Oh well, just make it rise quicker when the results come in! Go aapl.
Think of this as awesome. What a low risk stock purchase. Look at a 3-5 year chart. Same thing will happen, up down up down, but eventually double your money with very little risk if you are patient.
They had net 1.96/share, and they pay .52/share now so you add .10 cents, to .62/share. They still have 1.34/share to keep.
Last year they earned 1.42/share and paid .47share and kept .95 share, so they will still be increasing the total take per quarter. So to them it is chump change, but a .40 per year increase in the dividend is great for investors and theywould love it. I think the stock would move quite a bit.
Now I think about it, it's not enough, we need to get the dividend up to 3 % to have a real impact, and it would still be easily affordable. They would still have plenty of cash to reinvest.
Amazing that nobody realizes the possibility of 100 million + iPhone buyers this holiday season might consider a Mac in the future, or even to compliment their phone this year as well. The news calls this a one product company, but the potential to branch out from here is huge!
Again, what did they know? Nothing! Just because a stock goes up or down on a certain day does not mean the traders are correct. I have seen stocks rally prior to earnings and then tank when the news comes out. Exact opposite. This was a perfect buy yesterday. The traders knew nothing!
The longer it stays down, the more shares they buy back cheap, then we get huge holiday growth in iPhone, mac and other new product sales. It will make earnings grow even faster! More cash for more innovation. Maybe they'll raise the dividend a bit more as well! Nice long term play here.
Ok, lot's think that iPhone is the only thing that matters, but all the iPhone buyers are potential mac customers. Even if only a small percent of the new iPhone users buy Macs, the growth in Mac sales will be significant. It will add to the broad mix of products that apple is building for the future. This company is so well positioned for a steady long term growth! Nothing better than having an undervalued stock with such strong future with an enormous amount of cash to help fund the innovation. Go Apple.
Sure seems like we should get a steady rise.If they could just announce a 10 cent increase in dividend it would boot the stock and cost them pennies.
