As Apple Implodes, One Generation Lasts Less Than Three Weeks

Tyler Durden's picture


It has been 20 days since the last March 2009-like $522/share 'Generational Low' buying opportunity arrived for AAPL. Well, it would appear that one whole generation suddenly cried out in terror and was suddenly silenced, as AAPL dipped to $518 moments after opening. As the clip below suggests, we can only imagine the crowd of "traders" waiting to scoop up all these generational low prints (and today's volume is epic so far) being sold to them by over 200 hedge funds running for cover... WWJTD? A second bite at the Apple? And is that unlimited cost basis facilitated with "Other people's" or simply monopoly money?

When is AMZN's turn?  When has there ever been a near-zero or even negative cash flow company valued at over $100b?  Did it happen in the internet bubble? I don't recall ...

Apple - the fall of man.


APPL - the fall of mankind.


Steve Jobs = an occultist and thinks he was illuminated (i.e a god). Did nothing to benefit the good of the people. Just created along with Woz, electronic pieces of shit of which 95% of its purpose just corrupts the mind.


The first apple pc went on sale for $666.66 I mean, at all costs i would avoid using that number - if one is superstitious or not. But no... SJ and woz use it on day 1 for the opening price.


Sacred geometry, numerology and astrology - is how they communicate.


Steve Wozniak is also a sworn member of the Freemasons. Wozniak describes his impetus for joining the Freemasons as being able to spend more time with his wife at the time, Alice. Alice belonged to the Order of the Eastern Star, associated with the Masons. He says that although he took the necessary oaths and is a lifetime Freemason, he doesn't actually put a whole lot of stock in the mystical and religious overtones of the oath or the order. He says that he joined the Freemasons for one specific purpose, but he is very unlike the other members of the order. He says he quickly rose to a third degree Freemason because, whatever he does, he tries to do well. He was initiated in 1980 at Charity Lodge No. 362 in Campbell, California.


Our society has been totally hijacked - every nation has been inflitrated within...masses are getting duped.

Jobs is dead, he ain't coming back.  He is beetle and maggot meat now.  


Hold the short position and financially rape every dirt ball that hyped this junk ass gadget maker.  Then we'll make sure those responsible will no longer walk the planet again.  Keep the plan straight.

Steve Jobs was a Beatle?  Who knew.  Did he join the band after the fake "is Paul dead" rumor?  That is the most awesomest and bestest thing like all iCrap gadgets.

No, not people.  Machines, maybe.  He´s probably hoping his comments turn to print and the algos read "buy " and "Apple" and react accordingly.  Retail doesn´t do CNBS anymore.

>whole CNBC viewership of 40,000


Half of that is us watching them getting pissed off and throwing shoes.  Even then the mute goes on for commercials.  For those of you that wish to blank out commercials on regular TV, Myth TV Linux appliances can do it for around 80 bucks.  Want to kick CNBC off the air?  Kill their commercials.  

Fuck their sponsors in the ass.  Not an inch at a time either.  Make it a point to shit all over their advertisers anytime you see a commercial in random forums.  Generate a hate storm.

Versus Youtube, CNBC is old school and garbage.  Listing of things that have more advertising draw than CNBC.

  • Minecraft video's done by 8 year olds have more eyeballs.  
  • Anime Music Videos done by neckbeard Otaku have more eyeballs.  
  • Nyah nyah cat remixes.
  • Talking dogs.
  • Funny cats.


CNBC is standing on it's last legs and is costing someone a fortune to run, the news paper is now a dead art form.  So is broadcast TV.  Now content rules.


CNBC < Youtube video of a guy changing his air filter.

Geobbels was a lot more subtle.  I wonder if the Stalin and Hitler propagandists were more intelligent puppets than idiots like Chris Mattews, Paul Krugman and the other TV scum.   I stopped watching 5 years ago.  CNBC is like watching a casino that lures all the suckers in with lights, noise, fast shots, etc.  F them.

TV and Hollywood is for idiots who want to support The Matrix and their own serfdom.  Keep watching folks because it makes you their slave.

  • Evolve or die in TV technology and the superior method of direct advertising and metrics (did the person actually watch your message?  on TV, probably not).
  • MSM < Random youtube videos.  
  • Prime time is anytime now.
  • Sweeps week is on demand.



To advertisers, cut your losses from all the Financial losers on cable circuits.  Zero hedge has more eyeballs on it 24/7, give money to them generously and you'll see impact.  Throw money at TV channels at your own bottom line.  

After all if nobody sees your clever campaigns, you DON'T exist.  If you are still advertising on TV, you don't exist.

What if we use GRPN to buy APPL and then have APPL products shipped via AMZN and I'll pay with my ZYNG bucks *that should have the Bernank's mug on them* that I "earned" while planting virtual heirloom tomatos on FB.

Problems solved.

Dude - you are joking but this is how SillyCon Valley worked during the tech bubble.   If you wanted venture capital money from the Lucifer VC sharks - you had to buy Cisco, Sun, Lucent, Oracle and a few others equipment or you got no money.  You also had to have an office near SillyCon Valley and have a token Stanford MBA. 

I am not joking.  This is the BS they told people.  I heard the f**ks say it.

Oh but Oracle is expensive and we can use MYSQL - sorry sonny - no money for you.  Assuming you succeed - they steal all your equity anyway.

What in the fucking fuck?

I want assets priced realistically. I want government intervention to stop. I want central banks to be audited, held accountable, potentially even completely shut. I want regulators and investment bank revolving doors to be nailed shut, and I want all fraud prosecuted and accountable sent to jail, preferably for years.

But I don't want the world to crash, and I really do reckon the vast majority really don't know what to expect when they want to see the world burn. It won't turn out the way you want.

An end to government economic manipulation and the actual application of the law to wealthy, politically-connected parasites WITHOUT some kind of crash or revolution VS being given a small equine by an imaginary magic man that lives in the North Pole and flies around in a reindeer-pulled sleigh.

I reckon the latter is more likelly.

Soon......Amazon revealed last year that the IRS wants $1.5 billion in back taxes. The claim, which Amazon said it would "vigorously contest", is linked to its foreign subsidiaries and payments made between them.

This taxmageddon, and the resolution that follows, will at some point bring its stock down to earth.
