    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

When ZH starts overlaying AAPL on NFLX without regard for their respective P/Es, then the ZH AAPL-bashing short (where ZH toes the same line as CNBC) is clearly warping into hyper-overdrive.

I'm not sure if I'm reading this correctly, but according to the second chart, it looks like $200 is ZH's implied prediction of where Apple is headed. The only way I'd agree with that is if Tim Cook converted Apple's entire cash hoard into silver.

The implied comparison between AAPL and NFLX is so insulting to AAPL fundamentals that ZH, with this maximum AAPL-bashing "snark on", will trigger a VW-type short squeeze reversal on AAPL intraday today.

ZH lets their emotions get in the way of investing.  Apple was trading at $14 in 2004, everyone on this board wished they would have bought Apple back then.  They salivate at apple stumbling because they weren't smart enough to invest in the greatest company of the past 10 years.  Apple vs. Netflix is a stupid comparison.  ZH has never demonstrated their ability to pick stocks or evaluate them that I can recall since I've been on this board.  Feel free to post anything that I have missed.

and AAPL was $31 in 2000. Your point is ?

Mon, 04/23/2012 - 17:16 | 2368450 Smiddywesson
Smiddywesson's picture

Agreed Kayman

$31 in 2000

$14 in 2004

$600 in 2012

Maybe we should entertain the possibility that buy and hold is a sucker's game?  Hmm?

Well, buying AAPL at $14 or $31 and riding it to $600 fits a good "buy and hold" strategy (in hindsight)

Buying AAPL at $600 and expecting it to rise to $12,000 - $43,000 means selling a lot of electronic hoola-hoops.

 At $100/share cash, they are not going to drop into oblivion quickly either.

Agreed if you had known in 2000 it would go to 14 (actually went a good bit lower) you would have been stupid to buy and hold.

But you didn't know.  Buy and hold protects you from your own stupidity.

ZH lets their emotions get in the way of investing.

The way YOU define "investing" it does.

Most of us here are in real assets.   Let us know how that "buy and hold" works out, because if you are "buying, then selling, then buying" you aren't investing, you're TRADING.

Now for a TRADE...  Yeah, AAPL was awesome.  But it's looking a little long in the tooth right now, and the USD looks like the best short term bet (or maybe VIXY).

what AAPL fundamentals? Selling high-margin yet technically outmatched luxury designer gadgets in a niche swamped by competent competitors through the use of a personality cult whose god has now left the ship?

AAPL is the new global "flexible accumulation" retail monster of the 21st century.   Last time I checked, dead gods are necessary for a religion to grow stronger.
