I wish I have a couple AAPL share... but my parents turn to HP. Reply 2 of 46 macsrgood4u Posts: 3,007member March 4, 2004 12:38PM The stock will probably not close at that level. There's usually some sel off at the end of the trading day. All of this has to do with some broker recommendations to "buy" and the, so-far, success of the iPod mini. Now, if Apple will introduce another "device" before summer things will get real interesting. iTMS in Europe will not have an immediate effect on the stock I believe because of start-up costs and low, if no profits initially. The iPod mini should do well, if it's priced lower then originally planned for Europe. Rumors are that it will match U.S. pricing rather then sell at a premium. Also look for redesigned regular iPods in a month or two just about when HP introduces their version. Now, I'm taking my mini out for a walk. UPDATE: APPL closed at $25.16, up $1.24 for the day!

Although it wouldn't surprise me to see Apple doing away with the row of 4 buttons across the top now that an under the wheel button has been designed. Reply 6 of 46 macsrgood4u Posts: 3,007member March 4, 2004 1:54PM Yes pure speculation. However, Apple didn't go to the trouble of designing and patenting (well, patent pending according to the iPod mini box) a new scroll wheel design not to use it in the regular iPod and any upcoming devices. New products, of course, don't guarantee the stock price rising. However, Apple is now perceived much differently then it was 2 years ago. Eventually, they will be a Sony-style company with lots of consumer products. That's what SJ stated he envisioned when he returned. Computers are not the growth industry it once was and Apple recognizes that. Apple's R&D budget is very large and they do have things coming along outside of the computer area. It's just a matter of time. I'd like to see APPL announce a stockholder dividend by the end of the year.

It's nice to have my stock portfolio in the green for the first time in 4 years Reply 8 of 46 messiahtosh Posts: 1,754member March 4, 2004 2:32PM While it is entirely possible and probably true that Apple is going to roll out some more consumer products this year and into the next few, they wont go too overboard. Steve has product teams and strategies very tightly focused, he has every cent being accounted for and Apple is vying to gain maximum efficiency and growth in these next years. Jobs will not go all Sculley on us, releasing anything that ever got development work, there is a rhyme and reason for what they do now (ignore the Cube, hehe).I really think that Steve Jobs could be entering his final 5 or so years (give or take) as Apple's CEO. Depending on how well Apple is able to do in the next 5 years could determine his future as the leader of Apple. With Fred Anderson retiring, Jobs will be the last Apple employee that worked in the pre Sculley and Sculley era. Sometimes I really wonder how long S.J. is going to run Apple, I wish he could forever, unfortunately, so does Wall Street.Oh hell, Steve will be around for 25 more years, yay!8) Reply 9 of 46 ipodandimac Posts: 3,273member March 5, 2004 6:57AM Quote:Originally posted by MacsRGood4U UPDATE: APPL closed at $25.16, up $1.24 for the day! thats awesome Reply 10 of 46 ikdigital Posts: 36member March 5, 2004 9:22AM What the???What's going on today?

Reply 13 of 46 jubelum Posts: 4,490member March 5, 2004 11:32AM I sat on my AAPL stock for over two years when the rest of the world was making money. It will take $19 to get me back in it. Or 8-10% market share, whichever comes first... Reply 14 of 46 kickaha Posts: 8,760member March 5, 2004 11:38AM I bought at 30. Pre-bubble, pre-split. I watched it go to 150 pre-split, then tank.If it hits 30 again now, I've double my money, instead of quintupled it. You want painful? My sell price was 150. My 'stockbroker' kinda missed that one, and one day later it was in the toilet. I could have killed him. "Oh, yeah, I was gonna do that the next morning, but it was already way below it, so I hung onto it."I'm still hangin'.

I'm in the exact same boat, except, I *wanted* to buy at ~25, but the broker advised against it "niche market" and all that...so I watched the stock climb to 150 over the next few months, you can bet I was kicking something. I ended up buying at 50, it went up to 100 again, split..climbed a little, a little more and I would sell...just a little...one day I wake up, check the stock, it's at $25...and it wasn't another split Reply 16 of 46 m.o.s.t Posts: 255member March 5, 2004 11:49AM Quote:Originally posted by Kickaha Yeah, lemming mentality.26.82 and dropping... is that a popping sound I just heard?Anyone for a slide to 22?

I mean it's 160% of what I put in.I don't know I may be greedy and see how far it goes up. Reply 19 of 46 kickaha Posts: 8,760member March 5, 2004 1:04PM Dunno. Everyone figures someone else has insider knowledge, and whoosh they go, right over that cliff. Reply 20 of 46 ast3r3x Posts: 5,012member March 5, 2004 1:17PM I was hoping it is just going up because of how successful the iPod and iPod mini are. «123» Sign In or Register to comment.
