Re: Google developer conference

I'm in Budapest, Hungary. The local Google I/O event is in Hungarian only. I can't imagine something like that with Apple. Curiously a lot of the developers here are expats form all over and so they are complaining.

Re: Buy AAPL now? Or wait?

"There is zero reason why Apple should be priced below what the average of the S&P 500 is priced."

Re: Buy AAPL now? Or wait?

AAPL at p/e 12 used to be cheap and at p/e 17 used to be expensive. today p/e = 15.25. I'd say this is on the more expensive side. Definitely $100 is going to be the bastion AAPL will try to take later this year but we have a summer to go till [more]

Re: Split Timing/ Full Monday

I believe that was me. I agree about the many bits affecting share price this week. If I had to make a call I'd still be short today in spite of the split. The price movement of AAPL in the last [more]

WWDC and the usual price movements

WWDC is around the corner. AAPL is climbing up with a nice pace. it will probably follow the usual pattern and drop after the keynote. How high we can get by then? who knows. maybe $650.

The strange thing is that there isn't any solid rumors [more]

Re: July call and stock split

I don't think the stock split will affect your contracts. If anything it will be easier for the stock to go up. Going bearish on AAPL right now is strange to me. If I wanted to scalp the bull trend I would have picked a higher strike [more]

The Fool doesn't give you one single advice. For example they recommended to buy the stock and buy puts at the same time. Which are bullish long term and bearish short term positions at the same time.
