    Run a hedge fund hey? You would not know how to run a lemon aid stand. Bigots like you are not only the opposite of what Jesus was all about, but you are stupid to boot. Psychologists have correlated different kinds of prejudice with a lack of education and any knowledge of the real world.

    This Watch and Learn guy is one of the most transparent shorts on any yahoo board. Now he desperately attempts to fabricate some nonexistent defect in the iPhones. Got news for you buster: Amazon's failure in phones is just another feather in Apple's cap and indication of its devices invincibility.

    Last chance for all aboard with Apple, a real company, with real operating results, a realistic future, and more money in the bank (cash and equivalents) than any company in corporate history. What else can be said to those who continue to beat a dead horse. Big J in L.A., retired security analyst

    No, not really. The first thing you have to be as an investor is a realist. If you can think rationally about value you are a much better investor/trader. If you do not think rationally, you are living a fantasy and thereby prone to delusion and distorted trading behaviors.

    I am holding to my target price of between $105. and $110. over the next three months, keyed to Apple's ananouncement of first quarter results which could be the largest earnings number in corporate history. An $8.00 a share EPS number for fiscal 2015 ending September 26, 2015 looks quite doable now given a continued aggressive buyback of shares. Next quarter when reporting in January they will announce both a dividend increase and another sizable authorization by the Board to buy back shares. The 10% price rise between now and then will discount all these favorable developments. Upper end of the range could be $112, but I prefer to remain conservative with my T.P. at $110.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Only reason for the hesitancy in price action of Apple today was apprehension about tech earnings starting to be announced this week. Now with Intel's fine results and positive outlook (beat on all numbers) as announced this P.M., we can understand why Apple is up strong in after hours. Just too great a value to keep this stock down for long. Actually, with a close above 100. tomorrow, we might say it adjusted to the recent market sell off in fine fashion. When even Credit Suise, a perrenial bear on Apple, raises its target price to 110. from 98. as it did today, with its highest on the street earnings estimate for the current fiscal year of $8.28, you know we are sitting pretty owning this stock under 100.

  • A market sell off of this magnitude can stop a locomotive. And the Nasdaq down over 100 points, holy mackeral. Just wait until next week. If Barrons doesn't get super excited about this new drug approval I would be very surprised. I think the stock does get north of 110 by a week from today, that is, next Friday. If the operating results are anywhere near consensus, and the outlook remains positive during the call, I can see 120 by year end rather handily.

    Following the Merrill Lynch/BofA quite bullish upgrade for the company and new target price of 120., Carl Ichan probably is feeling his oats. Now he has the quality firm (MLBA) confirmation and sponsorship he needs to wax eloquent and boldly again about how under valued Apple is and what management should do in terms of new board authorizations to buy back shares in the open market. His last open letter to management resulted in a 25 point rise eventually, and I can foresee the same this time around. This appraisal by a truly savvy investor cannot hurt as Carl is a long term holder and may mention a number like fair value 150 in his discourse. Should be quite interesting to hear his new rationale for a bullish perspective on AAPL. See him also and some of his team on Fast Money 12:00 P.M. East Coast time.

    This is another irrelevant opinion, and a meaningless change in her target price from 104 to 102. Give me a break. Women are by nature cautious so I am not being chauvinistic here. As an analyst though one needs objectivity. Apple is a value stock now with growth characteristics and the kicker being their growing cash hoard. Free cash flow will accumulate over the next three years to a point of well in excess of net $200 billion after deducting long term debt.. And this despite another $40 billion share buy back authorization. One can anticipate at least 9-10 percent growth in EPS indefinitely given the regular upgrades of their devices and the buyback reduction in shares outstanding.

    This is a bogus post. Since Thursday a number of independent sources have concluded that the new iPhones are as durable as any other such devices. Consumer Reports verified that normal use and handling affords no threat and does not compromise the new phones in any way.

    The shorts are getting desperate as technicals indicate a price of 105.-110. by Thanksgiving.
