    TARGET @80.00

      It may obviously go to $80 or lower (people are crazy), but I think it will touch $130 by the end of the year

        I obviously turned on Apple. But trend tracking websites in general are showing less and less interest in Apple oriented websites. Combine it with increasing competition from likes of Xiaomi or Huawei which got to eat into Apple margins and one can see easily AAPL @80. AAPL is in downtrend from peak of $130. It tried to break that downtrend in last year at least 3 times. Could not do so yet. Next support is @90. We have DJIA that just broke all time high while we have AAPL in downtrend. If AAPL can’t hold that 90 support once DJIA is going to pull back it has a good chance of hitting that $80.

        Yep, looking at AAPL today it looks bad, and I have already admitted that in the short term it may go lower. But Xiaomi, Huawei and even Samsung are not really playing in the same field as Apple. They sell cheap junk (with some exceptions, maybe, in low volume).

        While most people may not be so excited paying $700 or more for a phone, I think Apple has both more data and experience than most (surely more than you and me and any journalist / analyst / blogger etc.). They will adapt to the changing market, using their huge resources (cash, employees, contract manufacturers, negotiating power, direct distribution + partners). Apple stock sells today for a worse multiple than BBY just before exploding. Apple is building monopolies (of profits, not units) in several industries.

        We live in the age of no general truths, each person has its own (and FB, Google and the online community in general is greatly helping this). Interest in websites is part of this trend. Memories are very short nowadays. And on top of that, it is very easy to spread rumors and pie in the sky promises. Apple competitors play that game while Apple themselves don’t. Excitement over products / stocks is almost like a pendulum and this particular one has been pushed for too long in one direction. AAPL had a terrible year for mainly two reasons: China and too good 6 / 6+ sales (thus hard comparison for 6s / 6s+). Both are going away, slowly.

        Why do you think $1 made by MSFT is worth 4x $1 made by AAPL? Are they that flourishing and innovating company that will dominate tech? Apple already dominates several industries, it is only that markets still do not want to believe that. When they will get it, AAPL will shoot well above $150, because everybody (investors, not real people) loves monopolies!

        I do not know when the pendulum will be allowed to follow its natural path, but at some point it will. I have set a soft target of $130, as the new iPhone may start the trend. But it may simply be 3, 6 or 12 months later. We live in the age where facts are losing the argument with (alarming!) regularity. Only hard numbers survive, and even them have a hard time making their voice heard :)

          Nicu, never count on masses to act rationally. Reason I love Ken Wilber’s integral philosophy so much is that it perfectly describes developmental stages of population and their numbers. Unfortunately this developmental model of human race has shape of the pyramid. Where higher the rationality – lower the number of that population. In other words bottom of that pyramid is made of irrational people, that is the largest group and higher you go people are more rational but their numbers get lower and lower toward the top of that pyramid. You can see this in politics, elections, stock market – everywhere and this explains perfectly why it is so.

            I know, I’m not betting on people getting “smarter”, just on greed. And just like an earthquake, it cannot really be predicted, but when you see huge energy accumulated over time, you know that at some point it has to be released. It may be the large one or a series of fairly strong ones. Sooner or later, but it cannot go on forever.

            It is enough to have 2-3 good “surprises” (earnings underestimates by observers, for example) for the ambient discourse to change direction. And then some other analysts and journos / bloggers to have the courage (or simply think it is now good clickbait) to say positive things. Snowball.

      I remember those days when anal-ysts predicted over and over that Apple is going to die soon. I forgot names of those crazies we had on Google Finance discussion boards that kept saying every week how AAPL will go under $50 :-) Never happened.

    Banner ad today in the Washington Post web site, and I’ve noticed it seems daily ads in that paper. Does what a dime store wristwatch does just as well! The human mind. What would we do without it?

    “I have an iConfession: I hate my iPhone.

    It wasn’t always so. I loved it once and now I hate it the way I can only hate an old flame. I remember the first soft touch of a virtual keyboard in 2009. I pine for my innocent infatuation with the wonder of iTunes.

    Today? I’m mad at the way my apps shut down while in use, at the texts that don’t send, at an iTunes that doesn’t sync. I’m cranky about poky performance, with videos that sometimes take forever to download, if they do at all. (My husband, who also uses an iPhone, doesn’t have this problem, and we use the same network at home, of course.) My overall experience is just … slow.

    What happened to the iPhone I loved?”

      Wow, that’s cool. Little surprised they’d go there now, before they’ve really buttoned up the E and the 3.
      (hope I have those right.)
