Dippers still feel the need to get long "the winners" for the quarter end statements.

Nobody gives a shit,why bother trying to help?

They essentially only have 2 products,when those 2 are not the latest Atari,WII,Walkman or Polaroid anymore it will be 10 times more ugly to the downside.

Might be a long wait,but 2 products are resposible for MOST of the profits.For now they seem unstoppable.


What about their content delivery. They control a lot of media at $1 a pop.

Also, the PE ratio is only around 17, I believe. http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=AAPL

I just don't think it's worth thinking about shorting this at least until it hits the top of the channel. Fibos or otherwise. This company has the smartest guys in the room. It is extremely profitable, and I don't see the institutional love affair ending any time soon.

So why bother. There are other fish to fry that will make a lot more in percentage terms with a lot less upside risk when the time comes.

If your portfolio has you feeling irregular, for fast, long lasting relief, take a subscribatory. And support your local Stool!

Agreed...

But the reasons why it's going up is:

1.Traders buying what "works'
2.Douchebags chasing performance
2.it's More than 20% of the QQQ,so market makers always bid it to Paint the tape.
3.it easily moves markets with it's huge market cap
4.it's a cult stock
5."fundamentals"

In that order :lol:

The front month options are real nice for scalpers.

I guess that can work on the 10 minute bar charts. I don't do options though.

Options either way can be profitable. As an observation, this is common stock we are talking about here and as far as the company business, its a very competitive deflationary space they play in with other companies who are every bit as big and have a much longer track record (see Intel, and IBM). As far as direct competitors HPQ, Dell, RIMM and Google, Apple is currently carrying a market cap of more than EVERY direct competitor in the space. As far as earnings just a minor slip and Apple has a forward PE of over 100 or more. As it trades now it has a trailing PE (GAAP adjusted of coarse) of $27 a share divided into the $615 gets you to 22. But who the heck cares about fundamentals because non of this crap is trading on fundamentals. It sure the heck ain't trading on yield (1% and dropping). The parabola move up is obviously liquidity and when the table is all in then what?

Chicolonblow is a stock i have been watching lately-- since the beginning of the year this latest move up looks 100% computer driven to me. Volume has been pathetic-- just looks like the bid has been consistently lifted every day. I imagine there is quite the air pocket under this one if you can time it right. If we can just undercut one of those daily candles then maybe LOB.

Also looking at NQ about 2835 as a possible short entry, although i'd expect it to blow through that top rail, perhaps up to 2850 before selling off. Mean reversion trade... That's how i'm playing it FWIW.

I guess it depends on who the other 2 are, and what your/their orientation is.

My article just went up on ZH. I will not engage the rabble there this time. Totally pointless.
