New "Generational Low" For AAPL

Tyler Durden's picture


Unless you bought Apple stock before Valentine's Day this year, you are now underwater. In what must be the best evidence of how quickly a liquidity-fueled over-owned bucket of over-optimistic extrapolation can see sentiment swing violently against it, AAPL just plunged back (on heavy volume) through its previous "generational low" from 11/16/12. At under $505.75 ($505.58), AAPL is at its lowest level since mid-February and is almost 30% off its highs on 9/21/12 as it appears the much poo-poo'd Death Cross may just have been on to something. WWJTD? and do not forget to ask WWDKD?



The two major selling days when the professionals decided now was the time... middle pane - huge average trade size...

Yes Reggie you certainly tried to warn those who were too blind to see the truth. Your best call is yet to come, EUROPE has entered the point of no return and soon almost every prediction you have made over the past few years since the first Greek bailout regarding Europe's complete collapse are going to happen in the sequence you have laid out. As you know this train wreck would have already happened if it wasn't for the 6T EU injection which has since been pillfered and squandered.

Still rocking that tie, Mr. Middleton. Salute.

1. Free up both your hands and drop them vertically to your sides

2. Turn palms facing forward

3. Squat down slightly

4. Rotate arms back 30 degrees, and then inwards 30 degrees

5. Bend elbows upwards and GRAB!

Somewhere between 450 and 475 (perhaps 468 ?).  

Given the technical damage, I don't think you'll see it rocket through 600 without flushing out the nervous Nellies first, after a more serious break below 500.  

Sure, dorks buying in their IRAs could push it a little above 570 by January, but I don't think it'll be "fixed", regardless of X-mas sales, until it gets to a point where the large public funds feel comfortable initiating a longer hold, and that may require more blood-letting.  It seems Tyler's average trade size histograms could provide the required confirmation, and an (at least temporary) "all clear" signal for the final push to 765 before the Great Bernank's committee minutes crush it back to 489 (likely the inflation worries, rather than the unemployment target).

I doubt it. I consider AAPL to be where SUNW were around 2000. Nowhere to go but down,

Consider this:

A dual core A9 1.6GHz (granted, could be iPad's A15), with a Mali400 (again, the SGX543/554 are better, but more costly), and with a 1280x800 screen resolution (1024x768 for the iPad Mini) - all at $144.

Ridiculous bargain, compared to the iPad/Mini. It's crunch time, and Apple's margins only have one way to go.

Oh, and if you are shopping for screen resolution alone, then the Nexus 10's 2560x1600 is the one to get.

In the mobile phone space Apple lost the lead ages ago. Check out the Oppo Find 5 - a 5" 1920x1080 mobile about to be released. Personally, I like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

Surely, you're not suggesting that stocks move up or down based on strategic fundamentals ?! :) 

When CrAAPL's weekly market cap movements exceed the entire value of our nation's public utilities, any talk of fundamental or competetive influences go out the nearest Windows (no pun intended).  

I agree its days are numbered, but believe the final crash will come only after an initial mini-dump (like a toy poodle on a bike trail), followed by institutional mania (as opposed to the hedge fund game playiing that moved it from 350 to 700) that first pushes it to a new all-time high due to its "cheap" valuation, before the reality of your wisdom (and the fraud of "Apple TV", ha !) takes hold. So, you're right, just a bit early.

The final coffin-nailer:  a revamped Zune phone/TV/personal groomer combo, running Windows 8.2, will take down the mighty fruit once and for all.

Right, it's a fashion company that sells electronics.  I was talking to a woman whose iPhone died 72 hrs. after the one-year warranty expired.  Two hours on hold with customer service when the landline phone went to dialtone, and now a trip downtown during rush hour to only one of two apple stores around.  Remind me again on why they're so great.

Must be a bunch of unlucky guys taking profits after this stock has run from $100 to $500, and failed to sell at $700.

No worries, they are now dryhumping some low grade hookers like U.S. Steel, up 6% today, or some new "leaders" like ADBE, charging to world record highs on world record volume.

Always a buck to be made somwhere.

Thanks to:

1) Generational low interest rates

2) Crashing gasoline prices

3) An "Activist and Interventionist Fed"

4) Every other central bank loosening monetary policy

5) The coming "Centrally Planned Five-Year Global Economic Boom" in 2013 - 2018.

Will you leave again if gas goes above $4 again?

Miners have been getting monkey hammered for sure.  This bodes well for bullion long term though, for the less equity the miners have the less digging they will be doing. 

Also they may wish to shelf some of their PM for better times, reducing supply on the market, and jacking prices up.

That's just a theory though, we'll see if any of that happens.

I don't get it.  I don't hold this stock, but their p/e ratio is very reasonable; they generate massive profits; and this current quarter is expected to be huge.  Why does their stock price keep falling?   Truly curious.

They are a high cost producer of a commodity product(s).  

Ask the pc makers.  Ask Nokia, Motorola, etc.  Everyone has their day in the sun, but for a finite period.  Remember SONY?  


If AAPL runs to new highs on an apple tv, prepare for the short of a lifetime once that is played out.  Margins, Margins, Margins.

Off-topic tip: if you right click a youtube video at the point you want to start at, and select "Copy URL at current time", the link will skip to there automatically. You can also add #t=Xs where X = time in seconds (e.g. 132 = 2 min 12 seconds in) to the end of an URL to do it manually.

It's a handy short-cut.
