Ruby says the same crapola about Alphabet "going to $5" If this troll wanted a response, he got one. But my comment is not directed to him, but to his generation of ne'er do wells. Ruby is one of the now largest demographic, you know, mommy's little darlings who never did jack #$%$ in their basement living lives. This message board used to have at least ONE serious and meaningful poster now and then. No longer, the only reason serious PPL even check out this board is to learn and study an anthropological and sociological catastrophe consuming our once great country If you ever wondered what the artificially high self esteem movement did to Millennials and Gen X'ers, look no further than this petri dish full of Ruby's, et al. I would say God help you, but few of you believe in anythng greater than your image in the mirror.
And who are you? Your education, training, experience, licenses? The confident stupidity with which anonymous big mouths profess such pompous assness is proof of my central thesis here: Mommy lied to you, along with your teachers, that you were special. You believe the lie and behave according to that lie you believe and voila, you produce such DUNNING KRUGER balderdash. I'd feel the same way if you said Apple was going to 400 share. You're what is wrong with our once great country.
Great post, may I take it a step further? People who nickel and dime hold Apple day to day ARE the problem. Gamblers, NOT investors, i.e., Option Monkeys are, along with machine traders and their algorithms, create much if not most of the turmoil in this stock
Let's see genius, you had a 50:50 chance of being right and you brag about being "right?" I assume your mommy told you any number of lies about how "special" you are. She lied.
I believe Apple will buy its way out of the current doldrums that have plagued the stock this past year. It may be finally ready to make a BIG acquisition, something that will either give it a new product line and/or move it deep into the enterprise. Adobe? Tesla? GoPro? I know these are the 3 names bandied about, but I don't think so. I think much bigger, something that may trigger an anti-trust review, that's how big.
Ever watch one of those CSI shows where the wife is slowly poisoning her husband? He never dies he just languishes. Here we are in the middle of Apple's best sale's season and just like so many times before, one story after another seems to make it into print that suggests that Apple is about to flounder. Those stories are like the drops of poison the wife repeatedly puts in here husband's morning coffee. I listen closely to these stories, they are always suspect. "Apple MAY have a tablet problem.........coming off the best weekend ever for table sales." Ever notice that embedded in the poison is the sweet taste of the food being poisoned? I can't blame the sheep for believing this or being scared. Greed always wins out, but Mr. Cook and team have to know that you're going to have to put an end to the slow poisoning of Apple because I've seen this for too many years. "Apple's days are over." "Apple the one trick pony." "iPhone sales slowing." "Channel checks dwindling." All of those "poisonings" occurred over the past 3 years. Enough already. Arrest the wife!
Apple is the most unloved, disrespected stock in the DOW given its fundamentals, when compared to its stock performance. Let's face it, IF a stock reports a stellar quarter, yet languishes, something is wrong. IF a stock languishes during its best sale's season, then someone has knocked the air out of its sails. And this pattern is repeated over and over. It feels like a WWE drama where the cheaters win the match much to the chagrin of the audience. I could blame the option monkeys, the stupidity of the sheep, but in the end, as in any bargain between seller and buyer, Apple is ONLY worth what someone is willing to pay for it. For some interesting reasons, this Mercedes S series continues to sit on the showroom floor while tin cans sell like hotcakes.
