    Apple and Apple shareholders are only getting what has been due from Wall Street over the last couple of years. What I mean is that Apple is finally being recognized as a very successful company that has changed both the computer and cellphone industry immensely and has provided many jobs whether locally or abroad. For Wall Street to ignore Apple the way it has just seems criminal. Over this past quarter, I'm more than satisfied over Apple's share price boost and I have no reason to call for a dividend or buyback. I'm content with the slow and steady climb of the stock over the past year and hope it continues for the rest of the year. Apple is certainly the best stock I've ever owned or could ever hope to own. Thanks, Apple. Put the screws to Wall Street and make them take notice.

    Holy cow!



    With no news what so ever, it suddenly shoot up for no reason. While we have expected to rise pass $500, it should have taken many small steps.



    I am guessing iPad 3 rumors is another driving factor.

    AAPL could be $5 a share and it would still be worth more to me than Google and Microsoft combined.

    Note that this happened after Steve Jobs death so those that said Apple is nothing without Jobs and that it would collapse immediately after Jobs death as share holders would lose faith should be eating crow right about now.

    Why did the stock go up $17 so far today?! What happened last night to do this? It's a normal day; it's supposed to go up by $1 at most and down by $4-10 like the insane ramblers believe.

    Notice the new talking points by the haters. Apple is TOO successful, has TOO much money, is taking TOO much profits in the mobile industry, thereby starving innovation. Seems everybody is clucking their tongues about Apple these days. IT wanks were just fine with the Microsoft hegemony but Apple is just TOO big to accept. God forbid Apple should call the shots these days.

    It has been noted elsewhere that since Jobs' death Apple has grown by 1 Facebook in value. We need a new terminology to describe Apple's growth. "Apple grew by .75 Googles today" or "by 10 Dells."

    For astronomical units we can use Apple Cash to denote a measure of $100 billion.

    I'm not sure how many said "immediately".



    Usually these things take a while. It is like redirecting a battleship. Analysts know that.

    Great news for some of the very patient Apple investors here who've been waiting for significant stock movement the past few months.



    I think some of you guys should send out gift cards to the rest of us poor folk who don't have Apple in our portfolios. You know, just to rub it it.



    A simple VISA gift card will work fine for me. No need for anything special.

    "Oprah Money" seems like small potatoes in comparison.

    I'm guessing it took investors a while to digest and analyze last quarter's numbers. Once it dawned on them what those numbers really meant, well, all hell has broken loose now.

    The most remarkable thing is, Apple's trailing P/E is still only 14x, even at this price. Essentially, the same as that of Walmart! The average for the S&P500 during the last 100 years is 16x!!



    Let's not even talk about Apple's forward P/E.....
