    Stock up almost 6% today. What fundamentally change at Apple between today and the past few weeks. Nothing. That's why, even though I'm in it I think the stock market is a joke.

The music industry signed onto iTunes very reluctantly and slowly. TV and film studios will be much slower.

    Where I think the real opportunity is going to be, is mobile, but not in handheld. I'm thinking CARS! Forget dongles and bluetooth, just put the iOS in the car. You've got everything from the cloud now - music, podcasts, internet radio, navigation, phone, text, contacts, calendar, email, Facebook, all integrated in the car with Siri voice control. You don't even need your iPhone in the car.


    I agree that it won't be a big deal for Apple, but for a different reason.  People don't buy new TVs often enough, that's what I think will be the problem.

    its not about what they are doing. its about what will drive growth in the future. Apple TV is starting to feel distant and how many more ipad variations can they really do ?

    But doesn't this apply to other tech companies as well? I mean how much bigger can Android phones really get? And customers certainly don't seem to be eager to upgrade to the umpteen variations of Windows 8 PC's.

    This article, saying "buy".

    Apple's a long haul stock. Always has been. Dick can attest to that, I'm sure.

    Taking me serious on that other post.


     


    Anan, Anan...


     


    (ask Solipsism if he thought I was serious)


     


    By the way... there could still be another week or two of sell off

    I see it as post-Jobs fear... The iPhone 5 is likely the last product directed by Jobs, and investors who were comfortable under that spell are uncomfortable now. Despite all the sophisticated analysis involved in stock market trading, the market's behavior is dominated by primitive emotion.

    Must have been a very slow-developing fear....

    THE MACD just crossed up this morning on the 30 point uptick, classic signal of major uncoiling. The last time this happened the stock whent up over 90 points from 560 to 750 from august thru September. Here is a sign of a potential 15-20% profit? myself I'm going to wait until next week to see if the MACD uptick is for real

    See, you're listening to AI for your stock advice, which is a ludicrously bad idea since the thing has been broken for months.



    Okay. I had not noticed.


    So AI is trying to manipulate the stock price?

    A 'classic signal'? Really? According to whom? Why? Any cites or empirical evidence you can point to, or is it a wild guess?

    I think may be the iHaters are having an effect. The constant drone of talking points in which Apple only makes overpriced, behind-the-curve hardware is everywhere. The myth that only stupid people buy Apple products is reinforced ad nausea by trolls on every web site there is. The notion that Apple no longer innovates is another myth put forward by none other than a self-proclaimed "Apple Fan and Stock Holder" in this very thread. "Steve is gone so Apple is doomed" could be a self-fulfilling prophesy of the so-called fans who now announce their Apple street credentials (listing how long they have been an Apple user and how many products they own) only to go on and trash the company relentlessly. This FUD eventually accumulates and starts to look like the truth. Contrary to the old saying, if you tell a lie often enough people WILL begin to believe it. Finally the abject refusal to acknowledge Apple's contribution to any market or tech sector is very common among the jerk pundits and iHater crowd. I see it personally in my own home when some of my son's friends visit. They spout the most outrageous crap about Apple and apparently believe it heart and soul.

    "It would not resolve the lack of innovation coming out of the iPhone division. We need to see a bright future for iPhone growth or replacement/alternative . What will Apple do to get new iPhone customers, not existing ones. Thinner iphone? Faster iPhone?"

    Another misinformed piece, here why

    THe iPhone is a mature product the innovation happened when it first came out, there isn't much more that can be done with it, make it thinner, its the slimmset smartphne out there, wtf are you smoking, faster, its already the feates phne on the market again start making sense

    There was absolutely no reason for it to drop to $520's from its all time high. Issues over averting the fiscal "cliff" is just a scape goat.

    The analyst is good, but he missed the reason why Apple is only doing a 2% dividend yield and not more. The have much of that cash pile off-shore. They are going to pay taxes on it to get it back to the US only to then pay taxes to issue the dividends. If they could bring the cash home at a low to no tax rate they would pay out more in dividends.

    I trust their judgement, Apple TV will come out when it's right
