Are people finally getting tired of the same regurgitated crap being unveiled every 12 months?

Good, I hate Apple. Shiney iProducts, wharbarbgle....Android Xanax XII FTW. Farking bloatware, locked.

It's up 33% this year. Buy.

So buy it after it just went up a lot? Odd financial philosophy to have.

/Not to say you should never buy anything after it has gone up a lot, just that something having gone up a lot is not a reason to buy it, in fact it should make you more cautious about buying

it was up alot higher. the risk is whether or not this is a temporary dip or a price correction.

/it's buy high, sell higher, meaning buy stocks in financially solid companies, which apple is.

I have a few iProducts that use the "old" data/power connector. Not going to buy a new iProduct since that would mean that those older "legacy" iProducts won't work as well with them.

Time to buy Apple - well, maybe in a month or two, anyway.

I don't see how Apple could be a bad buy at under $400. It's still a strong company, and there's always that HUGE pile of cash. Even with gross mismanagement, it would take a decade to run Apple into the ground.

Seems to me that Apple is just in love with the interface blessed by Steve Jobs and is going to hold onto that antiquated design come hell or high water... they are basically just repolishing a turd and will continue doing the same till they go out of business.

When Jobs died, I gave apple 3-4 years... my prediction still holds true.

I do not think that the performance of AAPL's share price has very much to do with what Apple the company and their products are doing at the moment.

Hedge funds and other financial institutions spent much of the year buying AAPL like crazy in an effort to beat the overall market performance and to avoid redemption and defections from their funds. Now we're rapidly approaching the end of the year, with an increase in the capital gains rates and a medicare surcharge due to take place on Jan 1, so all the financial institutions are trying to sell to lock in gains and out perform their peers - a race to the exits if you will.

I wouldn't have touched it with a ten foot pole at $700 and said as much at the time. But if you're waiting for sub $400 I think you may be waiting a really long time. With a P/E of 11 it ain't gonna go that low any time soon.

Love of Apple has largely been a cult of personality around Steve Jobs. Now that the master is underground, the consumers are milling around, restless. The company will do well but its best days are past it.

Hate their products.

Stock is grossly oversold. P/E is absurd.

I'm sort of wondering what the replacement cycle is for iPads. Iphones and other cellphones, okay, great they get cycled at least every two years (and plenty of Apple fanatics loved cycling through their iPhones with every iteration every year).

While there's still a lot of market left to fill up with iPads and tablets, I can't believe that people turn over their iPads every two years, can they? Or that analysts would expect that to happen?

My last apple product was a 3GS after an update screwed up wifi so not in to all the iHype but as a reader of bgr all this guy does is take shots at apple.

Not sure what is more sad, being a apple fanboi or trying to make a living biatching about apple.

That said apple does have a brazillion dollars more in RandD than anyone else so I'm curious of what they might be able to come up with in the next decade.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Love of Apple has largely been a cult of personality around Steve Jobs. Now that the master is underground, the consumers are milling around, restless. The company will do well but its best days are past it.


Someone obviously hasn't read about their sales records lately. Unless you've got a different definition for "Milling around."

Market saturation, maybe?

There's a bit of that, but it's also the case that Jobs could see new opportunities.

One problem is, I think, that in terms of home computing and portable computing, the days of having a guy standing on a stage to announce a new product are over. Everything is basically a point release now, a slight improvement over the last thing. It's like cars today compared to in the 60s to 90s - you went from cars being unreliable, inefficient, rusting death traps to efficient, reliable cars that last for years.

Yes, because everything is instantaneous, fanboi. Apple is just another company now; you'll see it in the years ahead.

You know that has very little to do with how the modern stock market works. It may how it Should work but not how it does.
Current stock market is all about false expectations and feelings. if a great company that has a stable base and good growth does not meet some analysts guess about where it should be then even though the company is making a profit and doing well its stock will go down.

It's always interesting to see what garbage the anti-Apple propaganda machine has pumped into the empty heads of the paid shills and brainwashed iHater losers.
