In an age of Netflix and Amazon valuations and high-frequency trading, why is there still a need for stock analysts? Carl Icahn seems to be able to move a stock with 120 characters, so what good are charts, valuation metrics, etc? The gap between a company's fundamentals and its stock price seems absurd.
I am glad to have been with AAPL (and Apple) long enough to be realizing a healthy return. Hey, Tim Cook's gang actually makes money!
