    Apple Inc. (AAPL), the consumer heavyweight known for iPads, iPhones, Mac, etc., has been stumbling since October. Why? Let’s take a look at a few technical charts. Here is the Fibonacci Retracement chart for AAPL. The Fibonacci H-L Retracement study displays Fibonacci percentage retracement lines on the chart based on the extreme values seen on the chart. These lines often represent support or resistance levels, signaling a possible short-term price reversal before the existing trend continues. Here is the Ichimoku equilibrium analysis for AAPL. The General Overview Chart (GOC) displays the Ichimoku Kinko Hyo equilibrium analysis that was developed by...

    With every new $100 level increment in Apple‘s (AAPL) stock price, we hear a chorus of worrywarts on business TV saying it just can’t continue. It’s unprecedented, they say. Apple’s now too big. Steve Jobs is gone. Everyone likes it. It’s a bubble. Yet, no company this big before has ever had the opportunities and relatively low market share that Apple now has. And Steve’s greatness actually masked how good the rest of the team is.

    The markets are sharply higher as they get an oversold bounce ahead of the FOMC Policy Statement. In the last two weeks, the markets have dumped over 15%. Everything from major market leaders like Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT) and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) to small cap runners like OXiGENE, Inc. (NASDAQ:OXGN) have been pounded but are now surging dramatically higher.

    Now that the iPad has been ecstatically fused into our high-tech culture, it may be time to consider investing in those companies who have consigned seriously obscene capital into this cultural phenomenon. This may be a wise, profitable alternative to joining those who are currently invested in Apple (APPL). Sales of the iPad appear to be on course to double and even triple estimates, Bloomberg reports. According to a recent news release from the AP, if Apple sells its anticipated 5 million units this year then the following suppliers should benefit: AT&T (AT): Provides wireless network service. Broadcom (BRCM): Maker...

    The New York Times (excerpt) ^ | July 26, 2008 | JOE NOCERA
    Excerpt - On Thursday afternoon, several hours after I’d gotten my final “Steve’s health is a private matter” — and much to my amazement — Mr. Jobs called me. “This is Steve Jobs,” he began. “You think I’m an arrogant [expletive] who thinks he’s above the law, and I think you’re a slime bucket who gets most of his facts wrong.” After that rather arresting opening, he went on to say that he would give me some details about his recent health problems, but only if I would agree to keep them off the record. I tried to argue him...

    Excerpt - ~ snip ~ The dearth of information has led investors to do their own digging over the years. In 2004, one hedge fund hired private investigators to tail Mr. Jobs to hospital appointments in the hopes figuring out how sick he was, said a portfolio manager at the fund. Eventually, he said, Mr. Jobs "seemed to catch on," and became harder to track. More recently, hedge-fund managers said Tuesday, fund managers have talked of asking doctors to closely analyze pictures of Mr. Jobs to monitor changes in his physical appearance, and have been talking about once again hiring...

    Excerpt - Just got a nervous call from my lawyers who said they wanted to give me a "heads up" about a "situation" at Broadcom. See more about it here. Basically the feds are going after some Broadcom execs over some options backdating stuff. I'm like, So what? I don't work at Broadcom. They're like, Um, well, see, Broadcom did its own internal investigation and already cleared these guys, and the SEC isn't buying it apparently, and though the company itself has already settled the whole thing the SEC is still going after the executives as individuals. Now you do...

    Apple has lowered its projected shipments of iPhones from two million units to around 1-1.2 million units for the second fiscal quarter, which will end March 2008, the Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) quoted sources at Apple's handset component suppliers in Taiwan as indicating. Sales of iPhones in Europe have been lower than expected, pushing Apple to slash its shipment projection for the second quarter, the EDN quoted the sources as saying. Apple shipped more than 2.3 million iPhones in the first fiscal quarter, bringing total shipments of iPhones to close to four million units since its launch, the paper...

    Your Apple iPhone could be infected with potentially malicious Trojan software because of a fake upgrade download, computer security officials with US-CERT warned Wednesday. "This Trojan claims to be a tool used to prepare the device for an upgrade to firmware version 1.1.3," the US-CERT advisory says. "When a user installs the Trojan, other application components are altered. If the Trojan is uninstalled, the affected applications may also be removed." The Trojan appears to be timed to exploit rumors that began in early December 2007 about new features in an upcoming iPhone firmware upgrade. Various online news sites and blogs...

    If you haven’t upgraded yet - don’t!I bought my first Apple computer in 1978 - the original Apple ][ - and the obvious quality of the products has kept me coming back for more. Good thing the Leopard upgrade wasn’t my first experience of Apple quality. 10.5.1 isn’t it, either.I had great hopes that the first dot release of 10.5 would fix most of the problems. Sadly, that is not the case. Most Leopard installs are trouble-free. But if you rely on your Mac to make a living, you have to ask yourself if it is worth the risk to...

    I have been writing about Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) for the past ten months for AOL's BloggingStocks and have been a bull in every article. The shares have been a home run for investors in this difficult and challenging year. Apple is fast becoming the business school case study right before our very eyes as this company is executing flawlessly. Let's examine what's going on here in the calender fourth quarter -- Apple's fiscal first quarter of fiscal year 2008. The stock has ranged these past 12 months from a low of $76 to a high of $192. Currently Apple...

    Apple (AAPL) is trading at 164$ per share, $28 off their yearly high, and I want every share I can get going into the holiday season. About three months ago I made a life changing decision, the decision to purchase an iMAC desktop computer. 15 minutes later I was asking myself, "what took me so long?". Ahh, the colors, the compatibility, the ease at which I maneuvered on my new computer. My initial impression was that the MAC offered the greatest operating system and computing unit I have ever experienced. Three months later, my MAC was my new prized possession,...

    Excerpt - Arguably two of America's best run companies are Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) and International Business Machines (NYSE: IBM). Both have achieved high levels of success and shareholders have been rewarded along the way. However, both are treading in different waters and Apple is emerging as the winner going forward. In fact, I'm sure Apple will overtake IBM in value over the next two years. Bottom line: Apple will be bigger than IBM. Apple will be a bigger company than IBM in terms of market capitalization. As of this writing Apple is just about to hit $100 billion in...

    "You are very sad. And fat LOL." -- Quote from reader email pertaining to this Apple article. You don't need an empty gaze and a shuffling gait to be a stock cultist. There are quite a few companies whose followers possess a cult-like quality -- especially Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL - News). And what better time to talk about that cultish devotion than when the company's shares are trading near new 52-week highs?I should start by admitting that I'm a lifelong Apple devotee. When I was in college in the late '80s, I churned out papers and short fiction on an...
