Stick to stuff you actually might know something about (not sure what that might be, though).

You seem to end up in a slanging match in every forum thread.

Seems like your only real talent is for insulting people.

Why don't you do us all a favour and FO and do it somewhere else.

I said in my OP that I don't own the stock and have no desire to. I don't really care what happens to the stock frankly. I'm sure it will keep rising forever more to the point where Apple is worth more than the entire universe.

Why do I get the feeling that the bankers/analysts are constantly talking up the stock to force it up and up before eventually they cut and run making huge profits in the process.

I know absolutely nothing about stocks and shares but this looks like a train crash waiting to happen to me. Maybe not now but at some point. Must be a nice ride while it lasts though if you have the stock which sadly I don't.

Well the only difference here is that the stock run is actually matched by quarterly blockbuster earnings and it's not based on speculation. There is a ratio which is called price to earnings or P/E. The lower the better. Apple's is 16.79. A very healthy P/E is under 30. So based on earnings the stock is undervalued! Bubbles are usually based on speculation. As more people get exposed to apple products, it seems like their sales are growing exponentially and lets not forget, all this growth occured during the worst recession since the great depression. As the economy picks up, they will likely do even better!

Thanks. It's nice to read a sensible, intelligent and informative post for a change. It will be interesting to see what happens over the next few years.

No prob!
With stocks, it's hard to predict the future and hard to say when this winning streak for Apple will run out of steam. Nobody has a crystal ball even though some think they do. At this point though apple has very little going against them, and most negative comments you see here are based on wishful thinking and sour grapes.

Wow.

But I do agree with those who say it is still undervalued, because it is.

Incredibly undervalued!

Amazing, isn't it.

As far as AAPL Stock price, it'll keep soaring as long as Apple company keeps soaring. Simple really. To me, out of allllllll the amazing and existing upside that can push this Stock to double its value+ in record timing, and out of all the "doomed!" fear speculation, there are two things that can hurt AAPL, that I will watch and that would tell me that it's hypothetically sell time: "Cool/Want factor", i.e Sales and public desire to have the products, noted especially in how brand new models do within their first weeks/months. And Earnings, of course. Do they need to shatter with 80%+ growth to keep this Investor happy? Absolutely not, but it sure is awesome. Just keep the ship moving, and don't lose the plot. If the P/E ratio ever moves UP after an Earnings call, that's when you might start to have some valid sell-reasons. However, we are in such an opposite end of the spectrum from that right now, with Apple's Earnings so great, the P/E just compresses so greatly after each call, there's too much more room for the Stock to go up before people get near "it's getting too high".

I'm so happy with the performance of this Stock, but fundamentally, every day I see it get nearer to $600, I just think "finally playing a little catch up, but you're still way behind, keep moving up and then we'll talk".
