I have too much AAPL..represents 65% of my holdings....AAPL will open higher Monday IMO..
Last week up 4.4%,,,It is an investment but heavily influenced by options....causing short term swings...you can buy on lows Friday and see a pop Monday.
I would not be a buyer after the 4.4% run...expect a dip after earnings...IMO...
AAPL will dictate Market direction after their report Monday. Expected $2.16 earnings.....60-70 Million phone sales.....56 Billion Revenue. I have no idea if they will meet these lofty figures. Along with results expect a major addition to their buyback progran and an increase in dividend.
AAPL is my largest position owning it since the turn of the century. It is a long term investment.
The results and announcement will influence the NASDQ more than any other this week. Hopefully SWKS will profit from it....but I would not be a buyer of anything Monday. I own CRUS and SWKS. Will add to these two if AAPL results good.
I am up significantly YTD and I want to protect my gains. Will add to SWKS and CRUS going into their earnings if AAPL pops...
sell in May did not work last year and many years before...the National Anthem of the BEARS and CNBC..Last year you would have left a bunch og gains on the table.
I plan to sell some SWKS next week,,,My profit is huge...may wait for AAPL report and depending on results may hold or sell SWKS, CRUS. Sold AMBA today which was a mistake...Entire Semi sector down due to results...Expect SWKS to come back with FB....HZNP a monster...
I take that back...Nothing wrong with posts here. Often in a market in flux we react...that is normal...the words you complain about are insignificant...seldom does YAHOO exclude...Calling somone a name you would apply face to face with another is nothing...putting someone on ignore ok....How often have I been called dumb or ignorant by my nuns in school?
Sorry we are not in church until Sunday.
This is one of the best boards on Yahoo with the best people participating...showing emotion or anger with a mild word I would use face to face is normal....at least for me.
PS I do resent the comments by a few which chase people away..like the mean words used on stocksgirrl....words are much different than vengeful, condeming comments....
not only thin but strange...appeared being driven down by consecutive lower bids
lilly question you made as much as you say...not the first time you fibbed here...caught you once.
I do agree with you...Not the time to buy semis...wait until AAPL reports Monday...The market direction hinges on AAAPL....
