They can make a beautiful piece of hardware but I think jobs focus was how the viewer interacts with the TV.

I think it is your imagination.

He posted that over three months ago. Why don't you go back and dig up the numbers between the election and when when that post was made since those would be relevant to his post.

Haha, I bet people were saying that when Apple was at $700 too. The same has been said about a lot of companies (Microsoft for example), and Apple is facing a lot of problems right now. For example, they've saturated the high-end device market, and are currently seeing their market share drop across the board worldwide. There isn't any more room for them to grow in their current markets. All the while, Samsung has been successfully competing with them in the high-end market and has been absolutely destroying them worldwide because they are in markets where Apple doesn't even play. All of this talk about the lower-end iphone is exactly what they need to be doing, however they are already far behind and will be playing catch-up. Point is, I highly doubt that Apple can sustain their growth in the long term. And if they don't grow, neither will their stock price.

Edit: just realized that I replied to a 4 month old post. Apple stock has lost about $100 since then.

They haven't innovated a thing for about 2-3 years now. And that is part of the problem. Making things larger or smaller is not innovation.

AAPL is trading around $441.

Yep, the stock market is amazing. AAPL from $700 to $441 in about six months.

But gold is so dangerous to own. At least that is what many here have told me.
I did not make this trade --

My point was - if you thought Apple was about to go up - from where is was on November 15 around $525 - a better way to play would have been a call spread.

Loss before commissions would have been $7,600 you spent on the call spread - $4,800 you collected on the put spread = $2,800 net loss.

Hard to compare (apples to apples) using a call & put spread to just buying the stock - but if a person would have bought Apple instead - they would have also lost.
