Half a trillion.  Sorry, typing fast before going to work.  Half a billion we used to do about every two months...or as my old boss would say, "you're on the hook for $8 million a day come hell or high water".    Never missed in 6 years.

Ummm... cool?

For the record, I'm agnostic on the stock.  So don't take the following as a sell ...

a 5 year growth pattern of 100% should be considered fantastic.

That five year growth rate occurred 4 years ago.  As I noted above

September 21, 2012 $99
Today $93

What has also happened since September 21, 2012?

* Tim Cook is running the company with the influence of Jobs
* No new products (the watch was a bust), only upgrades to existing products.

Isn't the stock saying your return has been zero and will remain zero until they invent something new?  Replacement cycle is worth collecting a dividend and nothing more.

AAPL up to $104... what new invention do they have, bud?

Totally. I've got an 8-inch unit, and I think Warren Buffett is long on Apple.

None ...

You seem like a nice guy Jay Bee.  Haven't you suffered enough as everything else goes up 50% and this dog has done nothing since 2012?  Take this gift, sell and go make some real money in something that has a future.

Apple is now a replacement cycle phone utility.  Tons of better alternatives (but not Disney).

I haven't had a position in AAPL at anytime from 2012 through today. My comment has only to do with your comments on the stock, company & CEO

And now closing in on $114.  Glad I didn't listen to the pro's recommendation.

Wake up guys. Jesse attacks certain companies strictly for political reasons.

I seriously hope no one here uses his posts as any kind of advice.

Most of what I do is directly contrary to his advice, as the vast majority of my investments are buy and hold of low cost index funds.  I have never made a panic sale or purchase based on his threads about crashes due to the Greek default, the Brexit, etc...and my portfolio is set up very nicely for my retirement in a few years.

How many years have you been doing this strategy?

This is the kind of idiotic strategy that made Buffett, Lynch, Bogle, etc, rich, and made millionaires out of the guys (and ladies) next door. Shame on you!

My little buy-limit order that triggered a few months ago on AAPL at $90 has made me quite a bit of money :)

How many years have you been doing this strategy?

The long-term approach and absence of panic sales?  37 years.  When I was 17, I bought 7 shares of KO at $37 with money from a summer job.  The stock rose and split many times over the ensuing years...and there were lots of times I thought it'd be cool to take some earnings.  Ultimately, I waited about 20 years, when it was a nice chunk of the down payment on our first house.

More seriously, a little over 20 years.  I have been investing in 401ks and 403bs since my first job out of law school through dollar cost averaging, and the only adjustments have been rebalancing as I get closer to retirement.

The only "play money" I have is an old Roth IRA that I threw a few bucks into until my income prevented it.  I use that for the occasional game of stock trader.  I did well on the AAPL I just sold today at $115.31 after buying at around $100.  Biggest failure was buying BDSI a day before its CEO unexpectedly quit to go to a competitor.  On balance, I've probably made a few bucks...but nothing close to the other stuff.

Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.
