GOOG makes me nervous as a stock pick. They're making most of their money on desktop ads and clicks. And yet, the desktop PC market has plateaued. Mobile and other platforms are growing, and yet, Google is not the powerhouse in mobile it is on the desktop.
I personally think Google is highly overrated as a stock, and Apple is highly undervalued. I agree some manipulation is keeping Apple down, along with a Universal skepticism about Apple's ability to create new product categories. There is also investor hatred for Apple, from investors who got burned (and analysts who got burned like Gene Munster shouting that the stock would hit 1,000).
No matter. The cream always rises. Apple is the cream. 2014 is the year of the rise.
Going up: Apple mobile, Windows mobile, Tizen mobile, Amazon mobile.
Trending down: Google and Android
Exactly this. No matter what Apple release, there is always a bunch of people who are disappointed, usually because they have read some made up crap spouted by some analyst and thought it was going to be true, no matter how ridiculous the claims.
You forgot to complete the rest of the sentence: Amazon is down 20% YTD.
The market's timing may not correspond to yours. Sometimes prices lead earnings, at other times, it lags. There's no way to tell. At this point, it's quite obvious that there's going to be no traction on Apple's stock price until it introduces something new, and the market believes that it's going to be a needle-moving growth opportunity.
The usual market conspiracy theories are out in full force again, I see.
There is simply no evidence for it, guys.
Too true! Regardless of the actual stock performance, I'll say that it is at least refreshing to know of ONE analyst from a major firm who thinks Apple has a promising future!
That's just to lure in suckers. Almost everyone from the big city knows Apple stock always plummets on earnings and this quarter will be no different. Most other tech stocks rise into the end of their financial quarters while investors have at least some hope of good things to come. With Apple, the sell-off should start early and continue well into earnings call. Apple stock has no support whatsoever and buying Apple stock is simply foolish if you're expecting share price gains. It's well-known that Apple's share price isn't really tied to anything the company does. You'd never know whether Apple is doing well or not as a company.
There is no good time to buy Apple stock. A pullback means nothing and can likely be a prelude to an even bigger pullback. Remember, Apple's stalwart iPhone empire is constantly losing market share and this alone should make investors run for the hills. Every smartphone vendor in the world has had a large-display smartphone for years, but only Apple wants to charge more for its own late-comer. How perverse is that? You think that strategy is going to increase market share? No way, José. Apple's share price is going nowhere but down. Tim Cook will make sure of that.
You need to take your head out of your own arsehole.

Doubtful. After Apple's rise, Wall Street has seen fit to artificially manipulate the price down. The current stock price reflects absolutely nothing. It is all fake. All a scam. It is not based on anything real, except a bunch of thieves tweaking numbers in between bets.
Gambling with your friends is illegal, but the stock market is legal. The world makes no sense.

Google does not have a monopoly on advertising.
Facebook is making inroads. And yahoo is talking with Apple to make Yahoo search the default search instead of Google. That alone would crush revenue by 30%. Every year PC search is going down and mobile search is going up. That lowers Google's gross profit.

So the line in this picture:
I guess I don’t know that it exists? Despite being able to see it with my eyes, comprehend it with my mind, and point to any one segment and say what it is why it was?
