=== Apple had its worst day in more than 7 months as shares lost more than 4 percent, earlier sending the Nasdaq lower almost 0.70 percent and the S&P 500 down 0.13 percent.
"I think that Apple is just being used as an excuse for the market going down," Marc Chaikin of Chaikin Analytics said. "I don't think the news out of Samsung is really that significant."
I no longer have aapl holding as of today
but it's fun to watch it on the sideline
as a metrics of nasdaq index performance
exited the whole holding today
not "a little money off table" at all
even at 93.50 stock is still expensive
gotta learn to read stock action
I am quite amazed at how many people
naively bought appl at the top riding the hype
while smart investors quietly exiting at top price
good luck but no more vips for me
until much cheaper price is warranted
just jumped back in one ching chong stock
that I got rid of early this morning for another
trip up to green land leaning on the rebound
feel sorry for anybody having no fast trading fingers
down she goes back to retest 193 for days to come as market melting down
no way aapl on sale today
the MACD indicator showing
appl going down from here
the upside is very limited
after these long 2-year run
stock may sell off hard on 9/9
after the announcement good luck
I gear up all my green aapl cash
for the rah rah of alibaba = ho hum
ugly stock action from a slap of Samsung ..
=== New Samsung device spooks Apple investors

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Samsung is teaming with Facebook's Oculus to bring virtual reality to its devices for the first time.
The accessory, known as Samsung Gear, will be exclusively compatible with Samsung's new 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 4.
The South Korean electronics giant unveiled the device Wednesday at its Samsung Unpacked event in Berlin, a week ahead of Apple's hotly-anticipated Sept. 9 iPhone event in Cupertino, California.
Shares of Apple (AAPL) fell as much as 2.2% to $100.99 following the event.
Gear serves as an adapter, essentially turning the phablet into a virtual reality 3D screen. Based on the Oculus Rift, the adapter serves as a revolutionary device for the mobile gaming market, transforming the smartphone into a hands-free virtual reality "brain."
The Android phablet also features a fingerprint scanner and Super AMOLED display, similar to the Galaxy 5, which Samsung introduced earlier this year.
Analysts have questioned whether the 5.7-inch note will compete with the larger-screen iPhone 6, widely expected to have a 5.5-inch screen.
Samsung has long maintained a competitive edge over the larger-screen device market. Its Galaxy 5 has a 5.1-inch screen, while the iPhone 5 had a 4-inch display.
Facebook(FB) bought Oculus for $2 billion in March 2014.
