So far, so good as far as euphoric stock bubbles are concerned... but now what?
Tyler's patience - vs. - ?
AAPL (green) vs Housing starts
AAPL vs POT?
AAPL vs Erectile Dysfunction
BRK-A once everyone realizes that old Uncle Warren, with his banjo, has been the beneficiary of crony capitalism?
aapl versus usa voter turnout
History repeating itself.
That's my guess as well. AAPL vs AAPL circa tech bubble detonation - turn of the century.

Bottom chart: NFLX vs APPL?
I'm with you on NFLX.
Yes, it's AAPL vs NFLX.
looks just like my 401K ! (now my 201K)
Missed a decimal place.
There fixed for you.
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 like eggnog.
Hey, Springer is on!
nom nom nom
my vote: FAZ/^VIX
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.
Max Fischer, Civis Mundi
...or if the producers of the raw materials and energy for all those ipads stop accepting said paper.
Funny u should mention beanie babies, I saw the beanie baby Boeing Businees jet that Ty owns in Cabo 3 weeks ago.
50 million dollar machine. Thats alot of stuffed toys.
Wondered how he can still afford to run that thing?
This represents how fast Carla Bruni will bail out the door once the French Midget Sarkozy is dethroned from the empire of the stinky armpits!
How many times "Ron Paul" is mentioned in the MSM?
.. errr Gold ?
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.
Wouldn't you love that Plunger Boy? I prefer to ride the Tyler Durden AAPL squeeze of 23 April 2012 on leverage... AAPL green as I type.
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 ?
$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.
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).
the Tyler Durden AAPL Short Squeeze of April 23 2012 was pretty impressive. One for the record books.
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?Please, do go on about how this is sustainable through a global depression.
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.

Apple's iphone `iOS = Complex/ untrustworthy multitasking - POS 'Flavor-of-the Year', which by the way has flamed-out, period! Cost comparison inflated and monopolized to the point where it's no longer an infatuation, but a so 90's kinda-gadget faze gone terribly full retard!

Dead prophets perhaps; dead gods... don't think so.
Hi there... I am the almight Gott... and I am dead...what ?????
After all, only so many mortgage payments to be spent on iGadgets before yer in the street.

Netflix and Apple.
Apple vs. Netflix
I second that notion.
YOYO is here!
Yes, this is what happens in correlation to not convincing your wife that after four hours she had to call a friend, and What the Russian Stock market just did.
My brother had a cover band that played things fifty year old men like to hear. They called themselves Viagra Falls
Netflix? OK, but I thought you were going into bubbles past, not intra bubble.
AAPL vs the Gold miners
AAPL and QQQ from 1999-2000ish?
Apple vs 1920's Dow Jones?
green apple, red netflix
Money supply expansion v. faith in the dollar?
Looks an awful lot like the Vix.
Was it ever that high?
you know that it was a lie anyhow.
AAPL / Google
The 2nd chart is GOLD.
Gold didn't go from 300 to 70.
I am pretty sure AAPL vs QQQ back in 2000-2001
If you didn't instantly recognize them, then you probably shouldn't be in the game.
Btw, AAPL won't paint the same picture as NFLX. Though I do think we've seen AAPL become MSFT ala dot.com bubble.
Okay,for those of us who shouldn't be in the game, your saying AAPL v NFLX?

Its AAPL versus NFLX , Apple is in real time but netflix is shifted 4 months forward so that the future of Apple can be estimated.
The similarity between the NFLX and AAPL charts compared in this post is that both had island tops at the end of their mania. Today's top consummation sends a signal to all of the hedge fund "follow the herd crowd" that it is time to find a new parking place for all of that overly abundant capital.
You can almost see them breaking out the NYSE dartboards now.
If you have overly abundant capital I know an overly sunburnt blonde with a brown bag thats just hoping for people like you. Downside you will never see that cash again.
Vaporization of excess money is a characteristic of a healthy market. That blond you speak of is similar to the maggots that remove rotting corpses.
hopium vs dopium
PCLN is worse
Cartegena vs Tokyo as choices for vacations
Which on is Cartegena? (Made me LOL Oleander)
Green Line = Apple
Red Line = Stimulus Spending per Month?
Wow I love me a good brain-teaser coupled with a few thousand smartass guesses.

Looking more VW-like with every HFT second since ZH chose the path of insult. Thanks $4,231,956 Mr Durden. You are our hero today. We are all rocking in our trading chairs cheering you shouting "VW, Apple, ZH"
My career prospects as an investment professional.
Apple VS Enron?
Well if AAPL goes to 200, I'm all in; no matter what the rest of the financial sector melts down to.
The only thing that is going to stop the Core, is anti-competition laws.
They have a huge R+D programme with all sorts of new products, unlike Macrosoft, HP and the rest of the middle-aged hi-tech monsters.
Mind you, they've spent way too much in a new HQ. That's a bad sign.
Try to keep objective folks, and sort the wheat from the chaff.
Good company or not, when the earthquake hits, the big buildings have the farthest to fall.
Apple was a better company in 2000, and it didn't save their stock price then either.
Please Tyler tell us wtf it is. I can't take it anymore...
AAPL and Dow Jones late 20's crash to bottom in early 30's
It your life expectancy chart once the markets crash for the sheeple.
Ben Bernanke's sideburn length?
Final guess: WalMart
(Increasing EBT allotments by 25% and once-a-week versus once-a-month would help out I'm sure, but McD's and YUM brands will demand equal treatment).
Just think of what it could do for equities; the FED should look into EBT bonds or ETF's.
The credibility of John Edwards?
Wanna bet? I bet he wins his case. This is a hit job ... internal conflict between democratic party factions. Have you seen what passes for ethics in DC lately?
