look at 1-month-daily-chart and see the rejection low day on June 2nd...
you think AEA wrong? ... AEA not wrong... the Long is Wrong
...and to make matters worse... only 2 Higher-Highs of Previous-Day...
we been trading on this MB so long to help teach but so few understand basic chart reading 101
another reason big run AAPL 400 to 665 was sooner than normal iPhone 6, cook told you that cuz he want full weeks more in before Fall 2014 SEPT 21st leafs change color
almost all analyst too much over estimate iPads... iPhone save the day
AAPL stock had it's huge parade already... big run-up from 400 to 665, what more do you want... there were several reasons why it run up from 400...
big profits for 2 Quarters
iPhone 5S Big Unit Sales numbers
increase Share Buyback
anticipate new iPhone 6
possible new product (watch, big screen phone, TV, big iPad, innovative new anything, etc.)
iCon buy AAPL
iCon stop proxy
possible raise more dividend
...and the big fish reel in CHL
isn't that enough for past 2 quarters? ... what else you want?...
...be patient, relax, let the stock trade and don't worry about 5% drop, in time plenty up again... in the meantime leave the trading to us
stagflation is not a new term, it's from the 1970s, about the same time you didn't know what that appendage was for
we said stagnation and we meant it, look it up in your 4th grade Webster dictionary... you don't have to be so bitter with us, we are posting good info for free, you should give a listen and think about what we say and why we say it as to our underlying reason
anyone and everyone made money in the 1980-2000, it is after this that we start the stop watch... 1998 stock was 60, 2102 stock was 60... we did better in ROST than your LMT from 2012-2014... SBUX was the shot that made mega bucks from 1998-2008 lame LMT years, it's was some SBUX buy at bottom 2009 at 7...
like we said your LMT is a poor example, until your LMT falls 40% like AAPL due to lack of growth and then employs a share buyback plan then we can discuss this... none of our team members are in LMT but you are free to do as you like, good luck with that
LMT went thru 14 years of no growth, sorry, their only gains have been of recent, we do not think this will continue
yes, we know they raised it, that's our point, but the other poster is asking for another dividend on top of that
the dividend can only be raised if the company thinks it can maintain that increased rate of dividend at least 10 years, did AAPL raise their dividend since initial dividend was started?... ok so there you go
sorry for the exclamation(!) mark, was supposed to be a comma... but let's make our final point so that you don't think we are just blowing smoke... the pricing of AAPL products was ok to be higher than competition when the tech cycle of a product well ahead other other practical and useful things the phone could perform, but there is now not much of a gap in new technology as before, and considering this we are calling for competition to cut the growth of AAPL... but it was one hellava decade of past that was impressive
we knew this post would be unpopular with Longs, but due to stagnation caused by competition we had to face the music and call AAPL for what it is... if competition didn't catch up to AAPL then we would still be 700% overweight AAPL, but that is not the case with AAPL growth and faced competition! thus we are only 1.25-1.5 multiplier weighted AAPL... we won't be wrong... even if we are wrong we still made a lot on the run from 2004 to 2012...
please give FunnieBucket the reasonable consideration, after all we were the few that said at 700-705-area in 2012 to enter first short area... not to bad a call at all?
it brought AAPL stock back to it's price 2 years ago... but for those widows and orphans in managed funds that can't hedge or short against the box AAPL has been the reason we have cut back our shares 75% of the once held size holding on the run to 700 in 2012... we are 100% certain that competition is our reason for reducing our shares... this may not be a thesis you agree with but we like to beat the averages and not tie or underperform them
you are assuming a growth rate that may not be met with the amount of competition... we suggest you adjust you expectations, especially if are overweight AAPL stock
