Sounds pretty cool. I'm not one for AAPL, but I kick myself every time I look at the price for not buying it a couple years ago.

a year from now you'll be saying the exact same thing: 'WHY DIDN'T I BUY IT WHEN GREENFROG TOLD ME TO!!'

I'm not interested in AAPL, doesn't stop me from kicking myself.

Solid. Kinda debating with Apple. Sold when it reached 95, rebought, sold at 180ish, rebought, sold at 250ish, rebought and now looking good. Although if I had kept the initial shares at $5 or whatever it was...
from earlier. Parents got me some tech stocks when I was really young

I'm curious, does anyone here know someone (directly, not friend of a friend) that actually hold Apple stocks from way back when it was still a double digit, and is still holding them now? I would think most of them would have sold it when it hit the $2-300 dollar range, when everyone thinks it couldn't go any higher. Now it's approaching the $700 mark.


Most Apple people I know sold already, and their current stocks are from the past few years. Still a huge return regardless of how you look at it. Sold some when stock dipped in May at $565, but kept the core of my stock and will hold for a while I think

over the past 5 years Apple and Philip Morris International have been major components in my portfolio.. my asset allocation is mostly mutual funds and equities.

Pm remains a big component for me as well.

Big banks, including Goldman Sachs GS -0.57% and Morgan Stanley MS -1.64%, have been on fire since late July, with the European Central Bank providing the latest ammunition for the recent charge. But David Trone, an analyst with JMP Securities JMP +0.51%, says investors should “take profits” now from these stocks, calling the rally unwarranted.

I wouldn't call that analysis stupid, he may be wrong particularly given the easing environment but its not an idiotic statement.

Anyway, more importantly, did you watch the trophy ceremony of the US Open? I guess JP Morgan is a big sponsor, they had their head of asset management (I think) hand out the check to Serena Williams. Very WASPy, very rich MILF bordering on GILF. You would have had fapping material for the evening.

It's not a stupid analysis, I know. I was being an a-hole. GS has WFC price target pegged at $37, I'll be really tempted to sell if it hits that soon. But then again WFC originates a third of mortgages and as the housing recovery continues it may be wise to hold on.

Sounds like I need to find that footage bounce2.gif
post #2755 of 5431
I'm holding WFC as well, why sell at $37? I plan to keep my financials until next financial crisis at least, if not longer. All kidding aside if I were to sell mine I would wait until it were at least back to being completely healthy, prior to that it will be selling at a discount in my opinion.

Picked up some MANU today, I'm a fan but think stock will be good in a few months as long as they make group stages of champions league. Think too many Americans don't see how much money they can make.

Been debating Gern for a while, almost bought then saw the new / my bids drop crazily in a few seconds

I would never buy a Spanish team they get crazy loans to buy players and don't make anywhere close to what the english make in general. Some years the top teams might make more but not worth all the risk imo. And he recent strikes / TV issues don't help

Maybe some people don't think iPhone 5 will be as evolutionary as Tim Cook claimed, and they want to lock in their gain over the last few months before the Sep 12 announcement. I think iPhone 5 will be a hit, and I'm thinking of adding 2-3 shares too, since my cost basis is actually higher than now.
