    Default Aapl

    New iPhone September 10, rumours of a lower cost model. Last announcement had a major positive impact on the share price. Anybody know much about how this stock is valued and what may happen this time around?

    I suppose there are quite a few reasons the market decided to discount Apple, , the loss of Jobs' innovation and leadership, intense competition from Samsung, erosion of margin , and that the share price had climbed parabola-like. And with technology stocks there is always a possibility that the heyday of being No.1 can fade quite quickly eg RIMM or Blackberry as its called now.

    See the graph shown to compare these two stocks and you notice how similar they are except that Blackberry is leading the way (to zero?) by about 5 years!

    However by any normal estimates of business continuity there are some strong views that the discounting of Apples shareprice got overdone, and of course the price has come from off the lows just below $400, and given some indication of a turn (higher highs and lows).
    For clarity, nothing I say is advice....

    Its sometimes the simplist of analysis that shows people what markets can do. I have a friend hear in NZ who bought into Tesla around the same price as your friend Sparky and he raves on about his amazing investment style. (Just noting it hasnt worked in the past until now!)

    I have a feeling aapl is a broken stock. Nothing they can do seems to make the market happy. 51 million iPhones in a quarter is a miss. Unless they release a new product category, despite their profitability and earnings, the SP seems cursed. Aapl the stock and Apple the company are two entirely different things, and buying the stock based on the success of the company would appear to be a dangerous strategy.

    Fantastic. A good old fashioned share split.

    Similarly to Bob, I have a whopping 20 shares in AAPL, bought back in early 2007. This was an interesting stock to hold.

    Initially bought 25 shares as a holding for my growth portfolio, which constitutes about 10% of my total investment funds. The other 90% are in dividend growth stocks.
    Watched AAPL go all the way up to $665 when it was the market darling, and then watched it as it started to fall. Sold 5 shares at $450 per share to recoup my original cost of capital. Kept the remainder as "house money" and proceeded to watch it fall to under $400, then recover.

    Just as I started to think about selling out and put the proceeds into other growth opportunities, Tim Cook announced a fairly decent sized dividend. It worked out to be something like a 10% dividend yield based on my original cost of capital (not current share price). So I moved it out of my growth portfolio into my dividend portfolio where it still lives today.

    So with the current announcements, I most excited about the 8% increase in quarterly dividend. AAPL is proving to be a great dividend-growth stock, and one of my favourites. Who would've thought !
