Shorted on Friday or bought puts missed the boat, so they are very upset. It's very funny to read their posts. Anyone with a brain knew that this was way over sold.
Shorted the stock or bought puts on Friday is very upset today that the stock did not hit $88 or even $85. It is very funny to read all these messages about hoe blind is leading the blind and other BS.
Buffet is smart guy and he knows what he is doing? history and the trend has shown that, so stop fighting it.
Apple was way OVER SOLD.
Are you short Apple or did you just sell? Do you or did own any position in the stock? You sound disappointed.
I am just hoping that Tim is doing what he needs in the back ground in China. Bottom line, they need to shake things up! they have money and power, I am just confused about their strategy.
I think they did this to show China good faith and I agree there is more to come. I would not be surprised if China allows Apple services back soon.
The problem is that Tim always talk about the long term outlook. BOD and the management don't care about stock dropping $44 from its high.
We as share holders are hurting, but this is not thing for the Apple.
With all this said, I am sure Apple will move again this year and make a new high. managment and the BOD are not stupid, they will come up with something soon. It is acting exactly the way it did back in 2013 when the stock hit $380 or so, then in April of 2014 they blew out the numbers and announced the 7-1 split.
Apple will be a winner again, the questions is when?
Look at the volume on 93 calls and puts that expire end of this week. It's like clock work.
WS crooks always find something negative about AAPL, their management need to get creative along with the BOD in order for this freak show to stop. The company has 233B in cash and sold over 50B last quarter, but did not meet the analysts expectations. Global economy has slowed down, but it is always Apples fault. This stock only moves on the quantity of calls and puts that are sold.
End of the story.
Your post is right on the money, this has nothing to do with charts, or products or innovation. Compare the action on AMZN and Apple for the past 3 years and you will see the moves were made based on the number of call and puts. Of course on Apple more calls were sold and the opposite on AMZN. This game will continue for as long as they can get away with it.
SEC is useless and has been for many years now. They are are just working there and waiting to enjoy their golden years.
I have been holding Apple since 2007 and it has done amazingly well, but the last 2 years have been very
Disappointing, it is a combination of the options market manipulating the stock and poor management by the company and its BOD.
Tim and the rest of them can easily put a stop to this none sense, but for some reason that they only know it's okay for share holders to lose money.
I hope that they realize every other stock has rallied in the past couple of month except Apple and its is starting to be very painful.
Only one reason for this, in the past 5 years more calls are bought on AAPL and more puts on AMZN, as long as the trend continues, nothing changes.
No matter what they say will take this to $125 in the short term, I just hope they have something different this time that could surprise the market, otherwise too much negativity and options will dictate the price between now and Friday.
He is too quiet, at some point he needs to defend this company, WS crooks are making money by controlling the options when it comes to Apple, that is 100% the case here. I know some people do not believe this, but this is a FACT.
This is the day that Tim Cook needs to shine, everyone knows the sales are either ok or down and expecting semi bad news, he needs to have something up his sleeve, anything from dividend increase to something unexpected!
We'll know in 4 hours.
If Friday's action does not prove that this is controlled by options, then I am not sure what will? it was orchestrated and WS crooks planned it perfectly.
Mean while SEC thinks all this is normal. they are a POW.
