Apple stock breaks $600 threshold as investors embrace capital reinvestment - Page 2

post #41 of 61
Started buying AAPL at $74/share pre-iPhone. Glad to see it's value heading back where it should! Long on AAPL!

Apple, not the markets, is buying the shares. In a Ponzi scheme you can't get out more than you put in. So how the hell is this possible? Oh because Apple dips into its bank account and pays you what the markets can't reconcile. A freaking Ponzi scheme.
The question is always there. When shares go up, who is responsible for paying you that increase.

Some of you are scholars in this corrupt, economic zeitgeis.
SMH.

Thanks for the laugh. I wonder how many people even caught that reference.

You are just jealous you believed the FUD and did  not buy Apple at $380-$500.

 

Next time use your own brain.

Well, I do own 5 shares at the moment. Bought them around $327

 

That would have been 28,000 shares x 85.88 = 2,404,640 dollars Doh....(note there have been 3 stock splits in that time (2)-2 for 1's, and the impending 7 for 1.)

Is $2.4 million USD considered rich in this day and age?

It's pointless to follow intraday trading unless one is a day trader. If you're a long, sit back and relax.

Yes and no after taxes 15% capital gains = 2,040,000 million at 2% interest = a take home income of 40,800 per year or 3,400 per month can you live off of that if your house and car are payed for? Or 28,000 shares dividend 1.88 = 52,640 per year (before tax) it is rich if your free time is valuable to you (ie...no boss).

If I do cash out on some of my shares I'll probably get an iWatch and MacBookAir. 

All well and good, but bear in mind that the iWatch is currently priceless.

Good news. Still not selling some shares until after the split. I spent 6500 for 100 shares back in 2005, pre split. I'm playing with house money now 1smile.gif

Constipated Odour? I can't imagine who you're talking about... 😄

Sure you could. You're just too chicken.

Ah well, it was good while it lasted. Apple is doomed. Now excuse me whilst I go and mate with my fellow fruit-fly.

All I pointed out was that the headline is editorializing.

Do not delete if you want my unsolicited opinions free of charge lol.

Maybe it didn't go through, there are no deleted comments in the thread.

Yup can't recall how many people ditched Apple stock only to later regret it. 

I think Bill Gates is the best example. I think he mentioned that was one of the biggest mistakes Microsoft ever made getting rid of their Apple stock which would've been worth many many millions today!
