in a typical market, buying low is what you hope to accomplish. in a recession, all bets are off of the table. we can see a lot of stocks stagnate with fairly slow growth. my instinct tells me that Apple is not just any company and that the AAPL stock will improve better than most. unfortunately, i move away from my heart and my head tells me that it's all a crapshoot right now. the price is probably near its low right now . . . i just don't know that it will improve much very soon. i certainly think it's a safe buy right now as far as not worrying about the price going lower than another $1 - $2/share before moving up a bit.<br><br>
