AAPL trend over two ears has been a steady climb punctuated be short term drops. This, while under constant FUD attacks and stock manipulation. I see no reason why it won't continue. I predict $150 by next February.
As someone else on this forum reminded me a while back, look at the last one or two years of AAPL. Yes, it gets manipulated in the short term, but long term it just keeps slowly and constantly going up. Just what we long term investors want. Just slow and steady growth, no manic highs and lows.

You can bet some form of kickback is involved. With Apple you pay a premium for its devices, and great features like SIRI are included. Facebook is "free" so your privacy gets sold to make up for it. Features like Moneypenny only appear if they contribute to revenue.
Wow, you must be that Internet guy. You know, the one that always seizes on something you say, twists it, and uses it against you? I'm honored. Maybe next time I'll be lucky enough to have you include a few of your famous external links that aren't as relevant as you think they are.
