It's too bad you can't afford Apple products. They would help you with grammar and spelling. Of course, they can't help improve your logic.
it's amazing to see all the chest-pounding associated with a 60 cent volatility one way or the other over a couple hours; pretty juvenile. This should be a longer term story. Let's see where we are in a week.
Oh and in addition, AAPL is a clearly established "defensive" stock in that it has for the last 5 years provided a flight to safety status when the market softens. It's well-established. Good luck.
I'm sure all this is a little confusing. It was to me when I first started trading. But you can't compare PPS of MSFT or CSCO or any other stock. If that were the case you'd have to consider GOOG and PCLN as extremely overpriced. Are they? Well the best way to normalize the value of a stock is to fine a common measure, much like a percentage will do to allow comparisons. That common measure in the market is the Price to Earnings (PE) ratio. There are other measures and many as good but PE is easily calculated and fairly reliable. Accordingly, AAPL stacks up very well against your cited stocks. Check out some of the great resources to explain these measures on the internet where you can get a lot of good information and free education. Good luck.
385? You meant 485 I assume. But you're clearly undervaluing a great stock and a great company. After another unrealistic beatdown after amazing earnings AAPL is very cheap and getting cheaper. With news today on TV content and FDA intro, the stock likely would have jumped $15-$20 had there not been the terrible day across the markets. I expect we'll see another good day tomorrow.
None of that offensive and abusive language is tolerated. But intelligent conversation, debate and thoughtful discussion about AAPL stock/options trading is encouraged.
Well certainly you aren't drawing from this MB pool to characterize the American population, are you? If it were an accurate sample, I would have to agree. But this board has been hijacked by the mentally unstable. I know you and I may disagree over many areas but you're clearly a smart guy so you can't take this board very seriously. I've moved over to gathrz - much more satisfying to the intellect. I was coming to this MB for its entertainment value. But even that has lost it's appeal. I look here a couple times a week now and post little. This pool has become a cesspool. But I think as a nation, we're far better than that. GL.
I've seen the trades - normal guy. It's amazing and consistent as any system I've heard of. He makes money on ~62% of his trades. He is very smart, very disciplined and of course, not dissuaded by know-nothing no-nothings who want us to believe that options trading is a losing proposition. In fact he's hardly ever on this board. He says he gets a lot of good information and intelligent discussion from the gathrz board but says that reading the YAHOO board erodes his trading IQ. I wish I could be more like him. I guess we all do.
So why do you bother with this? It's Sunday. You can't influence the stock today (not that you could any day). The vast majority of people will discover this news at the open tomorrow - along with trusted analysts' predictions of 39M iphones selling in China alone in 2014. AAPL tends to be up on Mondays and especially after a strong Friday and especially at OPEX. So you could be right. We could be disappointed tomorrow. But we'll all find that out at the same time. Those of us who are right will be elated; those of us who are wrong will be deflated. But nothing you say here will effect that in any degree...
Seems like selling tomorrow's $5 puts at the open could be a good move. Still risky by good reward.
I sold them - a bunch of them. But if there is a huge updraft this week, I'll have to keep my finger near the trigger.
And we owe it all to... well we just owe it all. Thank your children for donating their futures.
