That's actually why i kinda wanna get some AAPL stock.So, how many people here are shareholders of Apple? Are you excited about the price of the stock as upcoming products, like the future iPhones, are unveiled?
yep, I bought Jan 08 130 options when the stock was at 119 last month. I also bought Jan 09 220 options and Jan 10 250 options, I believe it will be over 300 come Jan 2010.Got in at $62.50 and I won't be selling anytime soon. Once the new iMacs, Mac Pros and, best of all, new Widescreen/Touchscreen iPods ship, sales are going to go through the roof. Plus, I'm confident that Apple has a couple more new consumer products up its sleeve.
BTW, anyone that thinks the stock is too high now (doubting that there's much room for any significant profit) should take a look at Google's stock price!
Prediction: 2-3 years from now, people will look back at $145 and say, MAN I wish I'd bought when it was that cheap!
Imagine if you would have kept it hah, same with me and may others.. Sucks, but its the coulda/woulda/shoulda game!Damn, I wish I bought on weakness on Wednesday. Thing is all my trades are audited and need preapproval so I would've missed out and would've probably executed the next day when they went up at open. ARGH! Would've been nice to offset all my other losses the past 3 days.
Oh well, I used to have AAPL years ago, bought at 14, sold at 60 and bought a car. Have always been meaning to buy back in but just got too busy to actually follow through.
270,000 iPhones sold in 30 hours? Previous AT&T best sellers took one month to sell 270k. I believe many people didn't want to be perceived as "geeks" and run out and get the phone the same weekend it was released, plus many people knew it wouldn't be in stock so why bother, I like many of my friends, waited a week or two later to buy the phone, so I believe most people did the same.Some of you guys are making out real well. For the long-term shareholders they know of course not to sell anytime soon. I would have loved to pick it up a while ago, but I didn't due to other up and coming IPO's which paid off BIG for me!
For me, it's not such a buy right now at this point, especially because of how the market is and because iPhone sales are not that great right now, read some recent reports and was very shocked!
I'm not saying they didn't sell a lot of phones.. But ATT along with Apple were not happy with the overall sales, meaning they were expecting to sell much more.. Also the huge activation problems led people away from buying it, this was all in a report. Let me find it270,000 iPhones sold in 30 hours? Previous AT&T best sellers took one month to sell 270k.
