Thinking about jumping in. Too late?

Keeping the sunshiners in check since 2000.
My stock guy always tells me to buy high and on margin.
Isn't a $600+ stock chump change for you?
That's not the issue. Can I make $$ on it.
Don't do it.
YES, buy all you possibly can.

I hate Apple. The wife just got an iPad3 and my Android phone does everthing it does. However, my wife loves the stupid iPad. Logic and reason do not matter. Double down on Apple.
Except your android phone is much more customizable.
Apple is reportedly going to be doing some buy backs but the same reports don't anticipate another split.
You would be planning your next vacation in Europe had you jumped in when it was hovering around 100 November '08 to Mar '09. I would have too.

Piper upped his 12-month target to $910 (from $715) and expects Apple to break $1000 some time after that. The driving force at that point will be Apple's entry into the television hardware market, but should also be boosted by their growth in low budget environments (cheaper iPhones and iPads segmented from the upper end) both in the US and abroad.
They haven't made any mistakes and it's frightening how strong Apple is right now. The only reason I would hold back at this point is if you think another major global downturn is coming soon, or if we start hearing about more antitrust investigations. I don't think they are being fiercely anticompetitive, but their influence and vertical integration creates an environment where the barrier to entry is very high.
Also, at some point I expect to see an exodus of skilled Apple employees jumping ship to new ventures, just like Microsoft and Google have seen, and Facebook is beginning to see. Talent eventually gets bored.
TF you already know to buy on the rumor and sell on the news, right?
If you hold it long enough and it doesn't go down after you buy it, sure you can. I've seen price predictions of anywhere from $300 to $1200 with a $2.95/share quarterly dividend. I bought some at $535 and it's up $95 since then, I'll probably just hang on to it and see what it does.
I knew sooner or later after the typical insecure dweebs got their jabs in a logical post would emerge. Thanks. I'll do a little more due diligence then purchase 10k worth with the money I made on the motte dame football game play.
Still a solid p/e ratio and" a growth" stock that's cut it's teeth over many runs. 18 ish I think on the p/e today.
Great buy/hold. Your kids will enjoy it someday.
Like Crash Davis advised, never mess with a streak. They could drop a deuce in a box and call it iShat 4 and people would lineup overnight to buy it.
Not sure fundamentals really mean anything with a stock like this. But I know nothing.
Ehhhh... going from about $100 to $600, I wouldn't jump in now.
Should have bought in the early 90s when the stock was $5 and on life support
it was at like 600 last week and now almost 644
Why would you buy and hold a stock long term that doesn't pay a dividend?

Tanner I am wondering the same thing. I think there is still some good money to be made there. I read one analyst thinks it will hit $1000 by year end. Ipads are set to dominate.
Its five o'clock somewhere.
Eff it, I just pulled the trigger and purchased 20 shares. It's only $$.
Check out Apple's growth rate.
Behind every successful man is a woman, behind her is his wife.
While a well positioned company, it's obviously not going to maintain its current growth over 15 more years. In fact, I'd imagine prudent investors will begin taking profits within the next 6 months.

Check out their growth rate vs Google for one year. Apple blows the doors off Google.
