I've yet to see a liquid cooled PM G5 that didn't leak a little. My dual-core, dual-proc G5 has one and it leaks a very small amount (the pad is discolored, but it hasn't damaged the case). I should take it in and get the radiator ass'y replaced before my Applecare runs out.

AAPL closed up today at just over $110. Good day today, up almost 14%!

Strangely enough, for today that was good, but wasn't actually that great.

MSFT +18.60%
DELL +14.45%
GOOG +14.77%
JAVA +19.58%

Now we wait for the laptop event tomorrow.

Opened above $116 today, and it's now at $114ish.

I think I'll sell once it gets over $130. I wonder if it can achieve that by October 21, which is the earnings call. If not, I'm prepared to keep this for up to 4 more months or so.

I can't post the link cuz I'm on my iphone but holy $#|¥! Apple sold 6.89 million iPhones in the last quarter alone.

P.S. I was at the Apple Store today. Soooo crowded, it's annoying. It's like grocery shopping in Chinatown.

Heh. Now is the time to buy.

I want to sell my other chunk by March but if I can't, I can't. $120 would be fine.

I've been holding onto my stock for... 10 years? I don't plan on selling, though I'm kicking myself for not doing it when it was at $180.

I'll feel more comfortable when the DOW hits 7000. Until then, I'll just watch. This will get uglier.

Nice.

AAPL hit $100 again today. Now in the mid-$99s, but that's still way, way better than the $78.20 it had hit just a few short weeks ago, a gain of more than 25% since then. Glad I held on.

Now onto $110 and $120!

I would have triggered a sell at 100, watched it go back down to 90 and bought again. But its easy to say that when your working with monopoly money.

Looks like there is a lot of resistance at $100. I wouldn't anticipate it climbing much past 100 for quite some time barring any major announcements or revelations. I could see it hitting an intraday high of 102-105 at some point, but it'll dip back down as major investors continue profit taking. I think it'll hover between 85-100 until we see some sort of new iPhone announcements or else next quarter's earnings report (assuming they hit their projections).

It may be a good idea if you have a gain to sell right now. You could see it go back into the 70s pretty quickly, at which point it probably wouldn't be worth selling. At $87 it has held up pretty well considering the market trend, but that could give rather quickly.

The stock is massively undervalued in my opinion: this is the company that stands to inherit the earth after the recession ends (at least, as far as electronics and software goes). Unfortunately I don't think the market really understands it's potential, and I can't see that changing for a while either, so I don't really see much positive movement until more people get a grip on reality.

I might consider loading up while it's going cheap though.

The market has more room to fall, and I see AAPL hitting the 60s, if not lower. Personally, I would sell now and buy again at ~65.


Speaking in terms of the general market, all this will turn around in 6-8 months. Not drastically, but a steady turn. It really needs to hit bottom first, but when it does I'll be back in with both feet and a ton of cash. Honestly, it would happen sooner, but the Stimulus bullshit, compounded by lack of authoritative leadership, has investors and companies panicked beyond all reason. Anyway, it's going to take time, but if you're patient you'll make a huge amount of money.

Totally agree. The price is going to be below "pre original iPhone announcement" price before we know it. Which is absolutely crazy to say the company has the same value now as it did before the iPhone (and every other advancement since then).

I'm definitely holding. I wanted to sell this month, but I'm prepared to wait longer, until it gets to well over $100.

FWIW, AAPL opened above $90 today.

P.S. The drop in AAPL hasn't hit me as hard as it has hit many others. Why? Cuz the CAD$ dropped significantly too. So, they kinda balanced each other out, as my AAPL stock is held in US$ (obviously), and all my transactions are in CAD$. In fact, I sold a bunch a while back at about the price what I had bought it (less than 1% difference), but made 8% profit because of the exchange rate.

I don't know if the valuation is justified or not, but the market is much lower than it was at that point, so the P/E ratios have contracted. People are far less willing to pay as much for the shares as they were when the market was at higher levels.

Everything is a bargain now. If I didn't have a mortgage, I'd be pushing a lot more cash into the market now and over the next few months.

So it was a good past week for AAPL, presumably mainly because of the greater market (up > 10%) plus the iPhone 3.0 stuff.

One wonders if AAPL will fall after the media event, or if it will stick with the market. AAPL is currently in the high $97s at the moment, retreating a bit after hitting well over $98.

Sold a bunch at around 104 and a half. It's been close to that $105 barrier today, but hasn't quite breached it yet. That's one-third higher than it was 2 months ago (which was well below $80).

I still have some AAPL left though.

EDIT:

Now well over $105. Lots hope she can hold onto these gains.

EDIT:

Holy frack! Closed today at 107.66, up +6.07 (5.98%). In fact just about everything was up significantly. Great day for the markets in general.

Still better deals to be had in real estate, if you watch the papers and shop the auctions. Last week I sold a property for $45k that I had purchased for $28.5k just 5 months before. Most of my investment capital has been going into this, and I can only imagine what the returns will be in the next few years. I doubt I'll ever purchase stocks as I did in years past.

Good to see the markets heading up, it should spark higher retail sales across the board.

Yeah, US real estate deals are very good now in some areas. Are you dealing with mainly foreclosures? Not only are moderating price drops stimulating buyers' interest, but the very low interest rates are also helping a lot.

Up here in Canada interest rates are also very low now, but foreclosures are still quite uncommon overall. The foreclosure rate in Canada is 0.33%. That's up from last year's 0.26%, but obviously it's still quite low. I've never actually seen a foreclosure sign in my city. Furthermore, price drops have only been in the 5%+ range, so it's not as if things are exactly cheap. There have been bigger price drops out west, and probably some of those will foreclose, but I'm not going to be buying real estate way out there. I don't have that much extra cash to spare anyway - $30000 would be basically useless at this time for real estate deals around here.

Sold the rest today at $108.60. I would have kept it for longer, but I wanted to use the cash for something else. I was hoping for $110-120, but close enough.

I am guessing there will be a trading range from $90 to $120 in the next few months, so I figured >$108 was fine since I wanted the $ sooner rather than later.

If you had one more day of patience in you you could've sold for ~$112.

Doh! It's already hit $114.75.

I suspected it was coming soon, but obviously didn't think it was gonna be today. Oh well, all my other stocks are doing well today too. I didn't have much AAPL left anyway, cuz I had sold a bunch at $104ish.

P.S. There were a few people I saw online who bragged they shorted AAPL at about the time when I sold. Ouch!

Wowsers. Touched $118 today. That's almost a 9% increase since I sold just a few days ago.

I'd buy back in if it drops below $90, but that number is getting further and further away...

Yeah. I sold some at $100 and it's gone up ever since. However, I am ahead and want it to continue to go up so I can sell the rest and buy a new TV.

Sold some at $170. I'm guessing a drop AFTER Snow Leopard launches and Apple's September event.

Plus, it's time to reap some profits. Sure I can hold onto it, but I need some economic stimulus.

Earnings just came out, watch it fly!

I've never seen a single day jump like this. I remember 10% swings back when the iPhone first dropped, but not this sort of dollar amount per share. Wild!

P.S. AAPL is well over double what I sold it for. Actually, it's double what I intended on selling it for $130, but I ended up selling it earlier (April 2009) because I needed to use the cash for my taxes.

I didn't think it would hit $200 again for several years.

I could see it reaching $300 around next quarter's earnings call, assuming the new iPhone does in fact come out this summer (and sells the way we all know it will) and we see continued success and development from the iPad (500k iPads so far is great, IMO). Throw in a Verizon annoucement and its almost a certainty.
