    Call the Close, I say...

    358.32

  • Check out this post from last week when the attitude was watch it be pulled back to 330 for max pain by the 1st.


    "Seems many are saying that since AAPL has risen for only 2 days, now is time to 1) Short, as it will pull back due to 2 days of rise, AND 2) buy Puts because "they" will reign it back in for MAX PAIN at 330. You know like it has many Fridays to retain the call premiums.

    Well folks maybe this is the week that it runs up and through all this speculation. It does not have to be "pulled back" to MAX PAIN every Week. It somehow got from 80 to 360, go figure how strong it really has to be to have done that in spite of these DRAG forces.

    I predict this is the week it goes through the MAX PAIN butcher paper and the calls will be rewarded, say hello to 340+, maybe on Friday "they" can reign it "BACK" to 340 for MIN PAIN! Good luck all!

    YAY it finally broke through that pattern! broken clock right twice a day!

    Shorted 1400shs aapl at 335.82 AH (for myself)

    so shorted 4300 shares above 335.

    I was going to do similar when started to sink 15 mins to close, but changed mind when it spiked .85 into the close in last 4 minutes.

    Did you read that as weakness, or doesn't matter you know it will roll up and down enough to make this OK?

    Android lowers Tablet prices to $279 AMAZING!!!

    I guess they, more than anyone, know how much it is worth. Wow, talk about selling on value. Apple will do that to you though.

    The ipad is just so much better. It is not even close. Homes that have both, the people fight over the ipad. The ipad is dominant in the tablet space, is taking away PC share from the Dell's & HP's etc of the world, and the MACs are gaining share in a declining space. How big an accomplishment is that when the competition are some of the worlds better companies? Apple's execution is simply amazing for anyone who knows how to run a business. Zero debt, beating the law of big numbers as they get bigger. On each front they are rocking it!! And, lets take the world's best products at the highest prices,(and GMs) to the most populated places on earth. HMMM nice work guys! Go ahead short the stock, there are days of profit ability, just be careful!

    how are you feeling longs?

    by malkovik Jun 15, 2011 4:07 PM
    md9197 md9197 Jun 15, 2011 7:35 PM Flag

    The longs are long because this is a great company. The ups and downs of the market will gyrate the stock as well as will options steering etc etc, however a real long knows he/she has a great company that is going to the moon and sticks in there to ride it up over the long term. Actually it is a good feeling.

    This company has the absolute best products (by far) with the best margins, wanted by most people, and are taking these products to the most populated places on earth. They have marketed early to the next generations and are getting entrenched into education, government, and business with the ipads. The ipad is a game changer - whether you like it or not IT IS THE MUST HAVE in this niche. It will replace books and training manuals for many companies saving on space and raw materials, and that is a side use of the product.

    The overall smartphone market is growing by leaps and bounds as the old desktops fade away. So the only thing that this company does not do well is- short term stock value management. But when it is up 3000% they obviously feel no need to bother. OBTW- and Apples business earnings and future prospects have never been better.


    PS. I was reading how LVS stock will get a small boost because they recently replaced 3.5B of debt with more attractive financing which may save them 100M annually in interest. APPLE HAS ZERO DEBT- and sitting on 70B cash!! Wow!

    So the only reason to short this is to time the downswings, because you cant do it on the results of the company. Good luck as there will be nice downswings, hope you time it right! But everyday you have to worry about that 7-to 10 dollar gap up like Monday. I rather sleep well.

  • Its not a good feeing when you are sitting short on an explosive stock like this that can move 10 or more points in a day. Gap at open tomorrow as consolidated today and ready for nice bounce Tuesday. The shorts have basically had their way for 4 to 6 weeks with this sleeping giant. Fe Fi Fo Fum -Glad I am long- real long!

  • Options bids are lower than the actual stock price!

    Go figure!

    The company execution is admirable. Thank you well done! The stock price performance of the past few months relative to others with less performance and/or rosy outlook basically sucks. Please don't defend this as investors want the moon- we did not all get in under 300! just look and compare to NFLX BIDU AMZN. 10-1 Split ALA BIDU, buyback, dividend etc- so not investing a small portion of 75B cash in your own stock (undervalued at that) is a good decision? Bad signal to market if it really is so cheap! Have the insider owners made so much that you are immune to this- if so time to blend in some hungry folks for a better mix. It would be nice to gain a little perspective on this- as I am sure that there is a comprehensive investor relations plan. How is it working? With the brilliance of the company's performance it is sickening to see the laggard P/E compared to your peers. How can you be so good- but do not get the value that you deserve? Lets set it as a plan to get the rightful comparative value. And let the market see you take a stand especially with the unused tools at your fingertips!

    If they dont do a 5 or 6 to 1, then they will probably not do a 2-1 or any split at all.
    Trying to get it more liquid or available for more investors at lower price- is hard to argue as a basis when 14M shares trade hands and avg volume is 10M daily.

    2 or 3 to one just doesnt accomplish anything.

    In any case, undervalued, and deserving of higher P/E considering zero debt, and cash hoard, plus operating earnings results. Most companies talk about what they are going to do, and how hard they will work to get products adapted and sold. Apple has to simply figure how it wants to control the flow, and the margins, as demand is out of this world as they expand into India China etc.
    COO Cook described IPAD2 demand as having the "mother of all backlogs".

  • md9197 md9197 May 31, 2011 4:15 PM Flag

    No- When a spilt comes- it will be in the 5 or 6 to 1 range to get it under 100$.

    Also there should be a dividend coming in the near future, as this many billions sitting on balance sheet, although a great testament to the cash generating ability of operations-is woefuly underdeployed- when you could buy back your own stock- issue dividend to shareholders, there are multiple ways to generate better returns compared to it sitting there at 1 or 2 %. But when you have 95% YOY growth -AND you have just begun penetrating the worlds most populated nations, what the hell there is double the cash on the way as this enterprise is leveraged into exponential land.

    Kropy- we understands your rants- please post new info instead of just constant whining on the same stuff. Yes we are aggravated at the price action, but give it a break- your posting the same shyt over and over is annoying.

    So now you answer back and justify yourself - or are you man enough to let us read in peace? Otherwise ignore is next.

    gonna breakout to 337

    by stevie.steamer May 26, 2011 2:26 PM
    md9197 md9197 May 26, 2011 9:57 PM Flag

    337 is not a breakout for Apple,

    A break out would be like CMG and or NFLXs last few days, 20 points in a few days! Like the earnings power, consistent results, cash on hand, zero debt, etc isnt worth it with AAPL. Yu learn your whole life what a great income stmt and balancew sheet would look like- and here we have it in spades, and in holding pattern while these speculative stocks are trading at multiples which hope they earn this money in the future, well AAPLE is doing it now. When it finally breaks upward it will be on a great base!

    take a quick peek at NFLX, these 2 suckers are running, and I thought it was too late 30 points ago for both, meanwhile Apple lags around,.... nice huh

  • A few days ago I read here about something new being unwrapped at retail Apple stores this weekend. The employess were being trained and could not talk about it etc etc, Well,

    what was it, or was the post just BS from naysayers?

  • There has been much discussion on the weekly pinning at 350, etc etc.

    Question: if "they" can pin to 350 why not let it go to 355, then 360 and pin those as the weeks pass. Is it not the same concept, but at higher price?

  • looks like the 350 and 355 May 6 calls are gonna work!
