Hmm, What Is Apple Doing?

Steve Jobs: I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.

I am moving on. Apple has been great to me. Thank you Apple!

Technical picture of weekly chart portends price weakness.
Would be doing nothing, also expect wuqijun would do nothing too, because we have already bought and hopefully hold forever.
I use to long puts to capture such weaknesses but don’t find it that profitable so no longer interested in trampoline.
Having said above, have always evaluated whether it is time to sell all AAPL holdings regularly :grinning: I am the type who believe in CEO (and his management team) and not really interested in quarterly result nor one or two product fumbles. I have confidence in Tim Cook and his team.

IMO, AAPL, GOOGL, AMZN, FB gets into stablized companies rank. It is good to have these companies woth 25% of the cash/stock.

Rest of the 75% on aggressive companies.

He is talking about product :grinning: I think he is right. He doesn’t mean it for investment or marriage :wink: Are you secretly itching to change partner :expressionless:

Aggressive companies:

  1. TSLA
  2. TSLA
  3. TSLA

My looks and health is on steady decline. So my wife is likely the best partner I can ever find.

My money is growing though. One should always evaluate portfolio as if it’s Day 1, to quote Bezos. How long you have been holding something should not matter at all. To me there are better opportunities than AAPL.

There is no right or wrong. I am not trying to convince anyone. Just sharing my thoughts.

:sob:


#932

Concluding that she is the best partner that you can ever find doesn’t mean you’ve not being itching to change. Sound like you have evaluated and conclude that she is the best partner :roll_eyes:


#933

If I treated my marriage as a business. Sounds like you are treating your Apple investment as a marriage.


#934

I was just teasing you :rofl:

Happy New Year


#935

Happy new year to you too.

I suspect 2018 market will be more tricky than last year. Volatility may come back and bite our ass. Best of luck everybody.


#936

What’s the worst that can happen? You just lose it all and go get a job flipping burgers at McDonald’s. No big deal! :rofl:


#937

Asian market is about to open. 2018 officially begins. :money_mouth_face:

Look like Apple might split Apple Watch as a separate category in its earning report.
