And this is based on your experience running what multi-billion dollar fashion and/or design-intensive company?  Apple, St. Laurent, or Burberry?

Maybe I'm doing something wrong.  My trusted device is my iPhone, so if I log into iCloud or manage my Apple ID on my Mac, I get the verification code SMSed to my iPhone number.   Here's the thing.  If I go log into appleid.apple.com using Safari on my iPhone, then it will send the verification code to the iPhone!  So two step authentication on the iPhone is moot!  Useless!

If you're a serious investor, you have no choice but try to make predictions.  
Apple is one battery technology breakthrough away from completely rolling up the mobile computing market.  Of course that's the hard part. But when that breakthrough, and the quantum leap in mobile device functionality that it enables, arrives, Apple will have the infrastructure and ecosystem that is best equipped for it.  It's worth sitting on AAPL and waiting years for it to happen.
