How Far Will Apple Fall From the Tree?

on Apr 23, 2010 10:20 am by David W Weigman

On Wednesday I posted this to Buzz and Banter: Apple (AAPL) could spice things up. Look for it to gap higher this morning and then test the upper channel line (see first chart) in the next couple of sessions. That is precisely what happened in mid-October (see yellow rectangle in below chart) following earnings. The result was a short-term top in both Apple and the S&P 500. In fact, the S... Read More

Five Reasons the Financial Reform Bill Is Bogus

on Apr 23, 2010 3:00 pm by Jeff Macke

Hello from New York where we refuse to apologize for focusing on Goldman Sachs (GS), again. We go with whatever happens to be capturing our inner-irritation or mental attention, in that order.

Risk and Return in a Risk-On Era

on Apr 23, 2012 10:00 am by Howard L. Simons

The principal purpose of language is to associate sounds and their visual representations with concepts and actions.

With the action over the last several sessions, this gap should not surprise you in the least. In fact you may look to book some gains on today's gap with existing shorts or inverse longs.

The first quarter of 2012 was a great quarter for the markets. The S&P 500 (SPY) was up 12%, which was its best first quarter since 1998.

The Ratio Write: Risks and Benefits

on Apr 23, 2012 2:50 pm by Michael Thomsett

Most covered call writers take comfort in the relative safety of the position. The premium from the call gives you downside protection, discounting your basis in the stock. But the risk is still there, especially if the underlying price declines below your net. For example, if you buy 100 shares at $55 and sell a $57.50 call for 2 ($200), your discounted basis in the stock is $53 ($55 - $2). If th... Read More

Are the Glory Days Behind Apple?

on Apr 23, 2013 11:00 am by L.A. Little

To say that Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has fallen from grace would be an understatement of epic proportions. To fall from $705 to $388 in a matter of a few months is not a correction; that is a blowout.
