weirdest thing, my stockbroker called me today and said something to the effect of, "sean, i rarely tell a client to sell after a short term run unless the outlook is very bleak, but you've had an amazing run these past few months with apple . . . perhaps you should think about selling and moving those funds." <br><br>i said, "okay, let's do it."<br><br>now i have to figure out where to move those funds. i am not likely to have luck like this again. perhaps a mutual fund this time??? hmmm.<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
my gut was telling me to get out before i read about what the analysts were saying -- and, i haven't read what they are saying any more than what i read in yoyo's post quoting them. <br><br>here's what i think . . . i think the macbooks arrive and get some negative press. i think the intel switch is going to be a semi tough road and many folks are going to wait for the second generation. apple may have a nice rise again, but it's not going to be in the short term. get out and let your money earn while apple sinks a bit (a correction) and then buy once they get the kinks out of the intel machines. that's what my guy tells me. my gut also had me jump on board when the stock was in the mid 40s a few months ago. here we are in the mid 80s. nice little ride, but that's an incredible ride for a company in a short time. <br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
i don't doubt there are folks salivating for one of those machines . . . i just have doubts about the reaction once people really work on them and use rosetta, etc.<br><br>i want apple to succeed as much as the next guy. i am not predicting failure or doom and gloom; rather, i am just anticipating growth that will not meet expectations and that will cause a drop in stock prices. i hope i am wrong.<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
