Whatup with AAPL? Did Steve Jobs die in a plane crash over the weekend or something?

It is getting dangerously close to mick e's "buy-in" price.

JMHO, but I think Steve's latest thingys were a bit too overpriced for the market to handle. It'll be interesting to see what happens with AAPL over the next 3 months.

A big 'ol speaker with handles for $400. hmm.

I am beginning to question why I didn't sell at 85. I am sure it will come back up again someday, but how long oh lord how long? (I'm being facetious, everybody, don't lecture me).

EDIT: the only other stock I own is going into the crapper as well. I think it's just a bad day for stocks in general.

$tevie, yeah, I was wondering the same thing myself this morning. I'm holding out until $100 but I should have recognized the signs of a stock about to take a tumble which is when analysts start shooting off their mouths about a stock hitting $100 and, then, another one pipes up with $103 a couple of days later!

samintx, not only WS but quite a few people in the forums were ho-hum over the offerings.

Wow... I don't feel as bad for selling some at $74 because I realized I had an uncomfortably large percentage of my meager portfolio in AAPL...

I kept 3/4 of my AAPL though, and yeah... OUCH...

But If I didn't think it was going to go higher, I'd have sold it ALL at $74...
In retrospect, that wouldn't have been such a bad idea.

Unless some news has come out regarding fundamentals (earnings forecasts, CEO croaking, etc) this looks like a "buy" opportunity.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan
