Hope you all sold the stock cause he's dead Jim.

I suspect the 5 announcement was delayed for this very reason. I find myself oddly sad over this, now that its happened. few people have had a greater impact on a culture.

I thought Apple stock would decline after the death of Steve Jobs, too.

The stock has gained about 48% since the first of the year.

Note to self. Apple stock over $600 per share. Rob recommended to dump at $300 per share. Do the exact opposite of any recommendations to become rich.

2nd note to self. I love old threads where people make specific predictions. :D

A couple of folks I know who went to Apple at the 2002 AT&T Labs Diaspora have retired as millionaires. And that because Mr. Lister was Rob Wrong.

Maybe now is the time to dump your Apple stock.

You would have have missed out on a whole lot of upside if you had dumped it on Jan. 18, 2011. It's up about 88% since then.

I remain bearish nonetheless.

Show me the facts and I still won't believe it.

If they keep pissing off Samsung it will end badly for them.

I don't get suing the company that provides a good deal of your parts, including the processor, but Samsung is still profiting from Apple's purchases for now.

Yeah, because that worked well in the past.

With the Apple victory in California, Samsung's going to renegotiate their contract with Apple. What this means..is that Apple users are going to pay even more for their iThings in the future, that they already pay an arm and a leg for.

Apple is trying to corner the market here and eventually the anti monopoly laws will bite them in the ass.

Yeah, that would have been a good time to sell.
