    It's ALWAYS the time to Buy AAPL The fundamentals are that brilliant. It will reward you, and will be the "best bet" in the market for some time to come.Only the talking head naysayers try and find reasons to "dislike" this once-in-a-lifetime story, and they're usually just cranky because they've been too thick to miss this opporunity as they've been playing contrarian to AAPL since it passed $100.

    Apple is a falling knife? Seriously? The market is down over 1% today. Apple is up over 1%. Is that the behavior of a falling knife?

    Fundamentals can be useful long term but you always have to keep a close check on them and do not rely on them alone.  You must also use at least some basic technical analysis, i.e. moving averages, or risk substantial damage to your portfolio.  For example, the author could have mentioned that the stock bounced off the 200 days moving average so there is decent support there.  IMO, it's pure gambling to buy now based on technicals or fundamentals, unless you have at least some lose mitigation plan.

    Jobs is gone but the company he built will continue to succeed through his vision, not specific designs he came up with.

    After iPhone5 they got nothin.  New MacBook??  Why?  Jobs is 6ft under and taking the company with him.

    so basically the fundamentals, according to you, are pretty useless!

    When to sell?

  • Time to Buy Apple Inc?   2 years 17 weeks ago

    Just look at the chart.  It's trading in a downward rectangle pattern.  There could be lots of addition downside.  Try catching a falling knife and you are likely to get stabbed.  It's this obvious?  Fundamentals are unreliable over the short term and unpredictable over the long term.

    Some specialists tell that home loans help people to live their own way, because they are able to feel free to buy needed goods. Moreover, different banks give college loan for different classes of people.

    I like how Cessna and Lear both annouced that their latest and greatest aircraft will use Garmin avionics, yet this article makes no mention of that. Research much?

     UOPX does not sell fake degrees, they hold regional accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission.  Graduation rates are between 30-40% when you look at the entire student population which competes with most institutional graduation rates. President Obama was talking about career colleges and they happen to be for-profit.  UOPX gets pulled into these types of discussions because they are the biggest kid in the room and not because they themselves are under scrutiny.  Lumping all for-profits in together is akin to lumping all non-profits in together: “Penn State faces a sexual abuse scandal which shocks the non-profit university world.  Non-profits, like Brown and CAL, have been under increasing scrutiny in relation to administrative accountability practices.”   President Obama never mentioned APOL or UOPX yet you put words in his mouth by stating “President Obama is declaring was on Apollo Group and its friends.”  President Obama never said anything of the like if you actually read the president’s speech and not just Bloomberg’s interpretation this would be apparent.  Did you know that President Obama’s Cyber-Security Coordinator is a University of Phoenix grad?  His UOPX credentials were good enough for Carnegie Mellon and the Obama administration but not the blogosphere.  Right.  Bloomberg only mentioned UOPX as an illustrative example to try and get some traction in the press and the blogosphere.

    You are fooling yourself if you think Garmin is a strong company. How about its decreasing revenues which will lead to less dividends as they run out of cash?

  • 3 Stocks to Short Right Now   2 years 19 weeks ago

    For short positions I look for poor companies, not strong ones. The article does not mention Garmin's zero debt, nice dividend, and agressive stock buyback program. What about its increasing dominance in the aviation sector? Garmin is a very soild company. I don't see them going down past the current market correction.

  • Covered Call Picks (HLF,ZNGA,LNKD,VVUS,ANF)   2 years 21 weeks ago
    HLF

    While a covered call is a good conservative strategy, i prefer to use covered calls on stocks that have been sidestepping as a way to take in cash.  While HLF's recent plunge from near 52-week high to new 52 week lows within a matter of days has added some volatility premium to the 47.5 June call I feel that there are two scenarios more likely to occur between now and june.  In the middle of May David Einhorn will be giving his presentation.  The reason of the recent plunge is that Einhorn questioned some of the accounting practices during the conference call.  Einhorn has not disclosed his position as of now.  If during his presentation he announces that he is short the company the company could easily go lower.  However if he doesn't the company could bounce back.  I would prefer to do a protective put (long the stock and purchasing a put).  If we look at the June Puts we see that the 45 put is selling for $5.  If we were to purchase the stock at 46.2 and purchase the 45 put our net purchase will cost us 51.2 per share.  Our downside is limited to 45 (-10.16% loss) and our upside is unlimited.  If we the stock returns to 70 our profit is 18.8 per share (36.2 % return) and if the stock goes to 30 our loss is 6.2 per share (-10.16%).  Comparing that to your covered call @ 70 we would receieve $6 profit (12.99%) and if it goes to 30 our loss is $11.5 per share (-24.89%).  Let me know your thoughts
