now that AAPL is going up, everybody will want to ride her up. Now watch how the then bearish analysts come out and pound the table for aaple to hit $700.
Why is she not taking a break? One positive sign is that most of the negativity is subsiding. Anything positive will boost the stock price in short run + they should make announcements for new products.
It may be boring for you guys but very lucrative action for WS crooks. They are holding down APPL, burning calls and puts at the same time. AAPL is range bound and never trades freely.
I bought $470 strike calls expiring on May 18 @ $2.89 ea when apple was trading at $444 just couple days ago. Now apple is up $7 from when i bought but my calls are down almost 30%. I understand the options decay but these calls were bought just two days ago and have 15 more days to go.
The only way to make money on apple is to SELL calls & puts. The decay is astronomical.
buy $230 calls expiring 08/13. They will be ITM before you know it. They reported a great qtr and they always beat by a wide margin. Will they do it next time? may be not but you can sell these calls right before next earnings.
If AAPL makes a phone that is water proof, bendable and can be charged wirelessly in 30 mins then we can see $1,000 max. Nobody is expecting a ground breaking innovation in AAPL, so don't hold your breath.
ANGI is a great short since the economy is wobbling again. FB is sentimental and lately they have been a little innovative. Sell calls on FB and LNKD is going to be $250 before you know it.
DO NOT SHORT LNKD. MMs have been burning shorts since LNKD was $60. It's a growth story to support their thesis. 90% of employers look at LNKD before hiring. People are spending more on LNKD to get noticed and they will continue to do so as the job market shrinks.
1. Commoditized iphones
2. made smaller ipads
3. now makng smaller and cheaper iphones / lowering the margins
4. followed the market
5. sitting on pile of cash without innovation
It depends upon the financial standinig of a company. AAPL's balance sheet is strong, so it is viewed as a positive thing. Borrowing is tied to growth or increase in shareholders equity when company is strong. Don't look at interest expense because that's a chump change for AAPL.
It's not manipulation but these big guys buy a lot of shares for cheap and sell slowly to their advantage. Options is the only way to make quick bucks and they know that very well.
this stock is suppressed above $440. Yesterday it was shut down at $445 and today at $440. No matter how much you buy, it just won't stay above $440 today. Such control comes when more than one hedge fund managers wink at each other.
When a company pays dividend, it means investing that cash won't generate the type of growth that it once used to. That's when a growth company becomes a cash cow. When a company offers dividend, it basically offers incentive to hold its shares just because the company can't deliver the growth that it once used to.
no big deal. Just sell covered calls every week to recover your loss. This stock isn't going anywhere soon but you can still recover.
It's pathetic of FB to kiss AEAs butt for no reason. Everybody here knows how AEA writes..........gggggggggggggg #$%$ is that and shockingly FB is supporting this nonsense.
FB, you don't have to kiss people's ____ to get noticed. You are doing good with your own posts.
yup, i sold my PCLN calls too. While i think EXPE will beat for sure but don't have to take chance. EXPE beat will take PCLN higher and vice-e versa.
today's run was in anticipation of EXPE beat. If EXPE beats then PCLN will run up until earnings and if EXPE misses then PCLN will go back to $680 quickly.
I think PCLN is going to miss 90% because of mess in Europe, USD being all time high and EURO hitting going down. The EURO-USD conversion will erode the EPS. If EXPE misses then PCLN is done!!
It is absolutely mind boggling that with so much funds at hands, this company can't come up with a new innovative product. To add fuel to the fire, the company is buying its shares back and giving out more in dividend only shows how incompetent the management is at innovation.
WS and apple consumers have been screaming for last two years to see a new product and AAPL can't hear it........that is sad and BODs can't figure out why share price slid from $700 to $400. This ER was the last chance for the company to report great earnings and come up with something innovative. At this point, whoever pumps AAPL should be ashamed of himself.
NFLX made 5cents profit and it went up 30% and AAPL made 10per share and it went up 5%???
AAPL is the only stock that makes insane money but barely goes up. Earnings beat, revenue beat, shares buy back and divident hike is apperantly not enough.........huh!! I wonder what's good enough then
