Hi Buds and Budettes,
Gold is going to the Moon!
IBM is the Tell of the Market!
AAPL simply can do no wrong!
Just loved this post from Andy (ANDROCLES) about a year ago.....
AAPL broke through $600 today, a 50% increase since the start of the year. Frankly, I thought it would take at least 6 months to reach $525 but now the question is: How long until AAPL breaks $800. The dividend and stock buyback will help a tiny bit but the best incentive for goosing investor interest is, as always, sales and earnings growth. I'm looking for minimum earnings growth of $42 in 2012, $50 in 2013, and $60 in 2014 on sales of $140B, $165B, and $200B in 2012/2013/2014, respectively. These numbers can climb to even higher levels when/if AAPL scores with an OS-compatible TV set capable of doing all the usual things plus, video conferencing. There's a reason why the iPhone, iPad and MacBook products all contain a high-res camera.
With an earnings multiple of 15 AAPL has a chance to break $750 within 18 months and...Holy Cow...$1000 by the end of 2014. Remember, you read it here first.
Hey, it could still go from $390 to $1000 by the end of 2014. Not going to say it won't......... but ......
What did Gold get up to? Highest I saw was $1,791, but didn't really research it down to the penny. What is it now? $1,407. Not shabby, but has come down a fair amount.
I just suppose I will have to sit on my hands and throw it under the matress for a few months or so........... We sure aren't getting any inflation, (except for everything to eat, wear, drive and consume). Energy, medicine, food.......... who needs those things, Right?
Tough sledding these days if you are engaged daily. Spending more time these days working and vacationing. Not like Jeff is doing, but hey, he has put his time in and we wish him all the best adventures possible. Italy is the Wooly's next adventure. Rome, Venice and Florence for 9 days. In the big scheme of things..........life is short.
Yep, best thing I can do now is save. Almost looks like heaven to just collect dividends at 4-5% with utilities. T, DUK, SO....... boring, but hey, the older I get the more boring I become. My stories get better though according to my kids....... ;)
Wooly................... just reading some of the posts I tagged for later chuckles............ I have had a few
