I blame Market Watch.<br><br>This is what I read today:<br><br>The latest surged in Apple's shares has pushed the stock up 134% for the year and created an impression that, at least for the time being, the company is nearly invincible in the computer and consumer electronics markets.<br><br>If my brain wasn't so muddled by more eating and boozing today I would have clued in. That's my excuse for now. <br><br>
Hey, you get to laugh all the way to the bank. <br><br>Sigh, this thread has given me a serious case of APPL envy. Ha! Bet there was no such a thing five years ago. <br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue]I always deserve it. Really.</font color=blue><br><br>

I'm sure there's some finance jargon that distinguishes between 'return', 'growth' etc., whatever ...a share purchased at $76 becoming $200 is a good thing. Of course if the stock splits Carp will argue that the $200 share is worth more ... and you know, this time I might actually believe him. <br><br><br>

I'm totally serious, but unfortunately I didn't buy a heck of a lot. I made enough on it to puff my chest out a bit, but not enough to retire or anything... <br><br>And chances are I'll be leaving my earnings alone anyway. So it's all just Monopoly money until I actually sell it. <br><br><br>[color:purple]Work With ____! </font color=purple>

There's only a return when you sell. Apple has yet to pay quarterly dividends back to its shareholders. So, in reality you have not made a gain or realized any of the companies profits. Unlike my personal favorite in the dividend paying category, ExxonMobil. Pays a quarterly dividend back without missing a beat for over 75 years. <br><br>
