buy puts on apple, would not short as a retail investor. its very complicated. that said, my boss once told me that investing without shorting is like playing football without a helmet on.

It happens all the time. My firm was aquired about 5 years ago. It has a total of $2.2 trillion in assets.

GLUU is getting absolutely hammered. Wish I had some cash/margin to go in here, 3 and change is a damn gift. Still long on AMRN though, seeing some pretty crazy volatility before Orange Book update.

 I strongly agree.

 

Apple took a big hit due to initial Iphone 5 sales. However, the issue isn't with the demand, it's with the supply. One of the more notable new features of the Iphone 5 is the aluminum housing. They have tightened down on quality control from the factory due to scratches on the housing.

 

On the short term, it's costing them a lot of money (I've seen figures of around $60 billion). Long term, the issue will be resolved and sales should shoot through the roof once the issue is rectified.

 

Another arguement is that Apple doesn't have anything new to introduce....I disagree. The Ipad Mini should do phenomenal assuming the price is right. The iTv is also another product that a lot of people are talking about.

 

The last arguement is the Apple doesn't have anything "innovative." My opinion....have they ever? They have products that cater to 7 year olds all the way up to 90 year olds. They have never been the best product out there. They have products that are simple to use, have massive product support, and their marketing is second to none (in my opinion).

 

Most companies have a 12 month price target of around $800. I have only seen 2 analysts downgrade their opinion and in both cases it was from "Buy" to "Neutral." I have not seen a "Sell" rating yet from any analyst.
