I don't know, I'm thinking that the January-April share price movement was somewhat "unorganic", so I'm guessing that it might be trading around $540-$550 as a floor if there's another market capitulation due to Eurozone bearishness around July-August, but it might be short-lived due to the revealing of the new iPhone, MacBook Pro line etc, where the share price will be, and I'm guessing again, trading at levels considerably higher than $600.

The above speculation does not take into consideration any further monetary easing market pump by unkle Ben.

New Jose Escamilla Film… “UFO: The Greatest Story Ever Denied”… A Next Step in Disclosure?

So far watched 1h20m of this 1h43m video.

“ “The US Airforce assures me that UFO’s pose no threat to National Security.” – President John F. Kennedy. -- They NEVER said they don’t exist.”

6m25s “The Disclosure Project: Astronaut Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 – sixth man on the moon, Colonel Philip J. Corso, Head of Foreign Technology - The Pentagon, Astronaut Gordon Cooper.”

7m32s “Houston, this is Discovery – we still have the alien spacecraft under observance.”

8m00s “The nations of the world will unite, for the next war will be an interplanetary war. The nations of the earth must someday make a common front against attack by people from other planets.” General Douglas MacArthur – October 8, 1955.

24m “Scott Carpenter – Mercury 7 Astronaut.”

37m20s “And these are folks who have been involved in so called ‘black’ budget or covert unacknowledged projects … and they are sitting on technologies that can change the world forever.”

38m20s “They have been first hand witnesses to some of the most important events in history of the human race.”

39m10s “I have personally briefed a sitting director of Central Intelligence, James Woolsey, President Clinton’s first CIA director. I have personally briefed the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, the head of Intelligence Joint Staff.”

41m25s “Governments must never lie to the people.” – Absolutely agree.

49m05s Is that video of an actual crash ? We hear the sound of final impact with the ground but how far away from the location is the filming position because there was hardly any delay between sight and sound ? Unless the sound was

55m45s “We are not in Kansas any longer.” – He’s got that right.

59m Mars: “Rectangular and other patterns.” - Uniform enough to be artificial ?

1h2m5s “By the way, we’ve discovered a base on the back side of the moon.”

1h5m “The Horizon Lunar Outpost Project 1959.”

1h7m30s “I wouldn’t believe this even if it were real.”

1h7m55s “38 levels above TOP SECRET, the highest is COSMIC, President of the USA #17 level. Only 25 people have been cleared to the #38 level. No president has been cleared for COSMIC level.”

1h9m5s “President Eisenhower … realised he was losing control.”

1h10m30s “National Reconnaissance Office” – combining the CIA and Department of Defense.

1h11m05s “Alien Contact Intelligence Organisation.”

1h13m “if people find out what we’ve done, they’ll chase us down the street and lynch us.” George Herbert Walker Bush.

1h15m55s “Gordon Creighton, Military Intelligence – Ministry of Defense: Measures have been taken by agencies to terminate people who appear to be inconvenient or troublesome through knowing too much.”

1h17m “Secretary of Defense James Forrestal commits suicide… leaped from the 16th floor of the naval hospital in Bethesda.”

1h19m “National Security Council, National Security Planning Group – no Congressional oversight.”

1h35m50s “Senator Daniel Inouye: A shadowy government with it’s own airforce, it’s own navy, it’s own fund raising mechanism and the ability to pursue it’s own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances and free from the law itself.”

It is time for the human race to wake up and take down the enemy within.

So is that where all the gold in fort knox went, space?  We can't tells nobody cause the aliens 'll get us?

Eisenhower was losing control to the MIC...  I see nothing to suggest the MIC's expansion is anything other than a natural progression of the dance between self interest and collusion.  If he never had clearance to know about aliens, then how would he know that he was losing control to an apparatus pertaining to our involvement with them.

In the end, the desperate human requirement to believe in a higher power leads us to not only god, but aliens as well...  (it also causes us to overshoot in our projections of the power and influence of the MIC as well as its ability to control the general environment).  Fortunately or unfortunately, it's just us.

April 10th call while arguing with some dumb cocksucker on here abotu Apple Value...whatever the fuck that is.  I'm standing by it.

 

It'll float down to 550 over the next two weeks.

Stay for a week in ranged trading  <-- central banks intervene here

 

If they don't intervene:

Drop to 280 for a day the algos kick in and bring it to proper valuation of around 87 dollars.

Then the lawyers come out of nowhere and sue the company to around 3.87, like the last four times in it's history.

 

If they do intervene:

Rise to 780 per share, no dividend offered for another ten years.

8 dollars per gallon in the US, 9.76 for Diesel.  Market crashes anyways because no one can afford to drive anywhere unless using a moped.

 

 

Apple simply cannot, has not, will not stand on it's own without the central banks using it as a market anchor.  In engineering it's called a single point of failure.

Enjoy your bag holding for nothing chump, I'm glad you are here though.  Otherwise I wouldn't have anyone to take money from.

 

My call is based on what my Algo box tells me, which point blank says apple is fucked.  I trade on the same information everyone else is privy to.  Want to see revised numbers from the April 10th call.  I know you are staring at your "value" turnign into dust and you are probably too stupid to have a stop loss on your purchase.

 

So I'll hazard a guess you have lock jaw.  You are unable to sell because you "hope" on "faith" it'll get back to a level you can recoup whatever from your lousy entry.  You are also probably stupid enough to follow with that tired retail idea of averaging down...for what..averaging right into the poor house.

Here's a tip.  Get 3 grand and rent an Algo trading box for a year and take the training.  Life gets much easier after that instead of "value" investing.  LOL!  I have some valuable BreX stock you can own, next to my Tyco stock.

1) they still need those jobs

2) so far Tim Cook has done just fine, Apple has been doing fine, and it's not like suddenly all creativity is gone or something. It was teamwork and still is

3) Apple TV may take over a large part of the TV market

4) The thing about a bubble is, you never really know for sure if you're actually in one

5) I'm sure this is not what makes the difference for Apple

6) Yes: it's still a company that produces quality products with high satisfaction among their customer base. Growth is still possible based on that if they can keep innovating. The things you mentioned could be said about almost any other tech company.

Apple TV will not fail. You are confusing conventional TV with the TV of the future.

The kids of today don't watch TV at all, they use You-Tube and Visio and anything else that their peers suggest to them.

I betcha Apple has that figured out; just like I-tunes, they'll tie up all old broadcasts into a licence deal, and squeeze the advertisers, and make a whole new fortune.

$600, try $1,500 if the markets are still standing in 2 years -by then they will be forced to break themselves up.

Moi, I don't own a single Apple product ('cept I-Player Pro)

Apple is too expensive for the average retail investor.  There are a very small percentage of retail accounts holding Apple directly (i.e., not via ETFs or funds).

For those watching AAPL begin its capitulation here's my advice. Relax and calm down to a nice movie from NFLX and a soothing cup of coffee from GMCR... LOL CAPITUBITCHEZ...

Not this time tyler ... news from 8 mins ago:

http://etfdailynews.com/2012/04/16/apple-inc-nasdaqaapl-the-device-that-could-send-apple-shares-to-800/

 

Rumor has it that “iPanel” will be the name of a yet-to-be-announced device that will allow Apple to spread its wings into one key area where it has historically been absent: television. The iPanel will reportedly be the latest evolution in television, equipped with advanced features such as a computer, a media hub and a gaming center.

Essentially, the iPanel would be to the TV what the iPhone was to the cell phone – a substantial improvement and a product unto itself. Some have speculated that the device could be released as early as year’s end.

An iPanel would be a game-changer for a company that is already prospering like never before. After researching the potential impact of a so-called iPanel, Jefferies analyst Peter Misek has upped his price target for Apple to $800 per share – a 27% jump from its current price of $630 per share.

Welcome to PUMP AND DUMP!

 

Think about it - Apple going into an already competitive and established TV market?

 

Nah - if they are foolish enough - they will be burnt.

 

Remember it's diversification which curtails most giants of the stock market - Enron, IBM, SONY - even Microsoft to a degree (trying to break the game market with the x-box)

 

Playing with stuff they don't understand in order to maintain falling market share caused by this:

All history repeating itself - but with Apple it will be different?

 

Charge a buck everytime you hear it will be different (and it's not) and it's a sure fire way to a fortune!

ahh I see ...... just as well they didn't enter into the phone market when many people said they were crazy ..... just as well they didn't enter the tablet business either ... as better companies had already failed.

Look around you ... how many people have got iphones and ipads.  Do you honestly believe that most of these people will suddenly switch over to Andriod devices?  The iphone 5 will very probably be their best selling product ever.  If anything they are becoming even more popular.

The only way I can see Apple lose a whole lot of money is if there is a severe recession .... oh wait a minute ..... sheeeeeeeeeet

Problem is, what does the current stock price really have to do with the products apple sells?

You bring up an interesting question:  How large can a company grow before it runs into the walls of its Petri dish?

They're just engineering a short squeeze.

Though, this thing should drop to 502 and possibly 455.

AAPL parabolic irrational exuberance

Vertical moves for any stock,commodity etc are unsustainable.

The inevitable reversal should be spectacular.
