Hi everyone, I first want to say that I really enjoy this fools website where I get to read everyones opinion or views on Apple stock. I bought 1200 plus shares of APPL back when it was in the high 40's. I was really just trying to find a stock that had potential for gain in the long term. Being in the Mid 70's is beyond my wildest expectations. I know that if I sell tommorow morning that the stock will probably go through the roof with my luck so I am just going to ride it long for the rest of the year. I live here in Hawaii (Makakilo) and have visited the Apple store in Ala Moana shopping center a few times since buying the stock. This place is like the last liquor store around before a ban on booze the next day. Its ridicious. I couldn't understand all the hipe about Apple's Ipod so my bought my youngest son one and was totally amazed. Since then bought one for my oldest a Senior at University of Hawaii(use it for sometype of download of lectures) and then another one for my wife. Plus numerous accessories. I am totally blown away with how fast you get this engraved Ipod from China in a week. I told my oldest son to go and buy me the new top of the line Mac(will have to learn how to use this) when the new ones appear. I hope that the transistion will be easy since I have been using Windows since retiring from the Navy in 92.Anyway, if Apple is as good as I think it is I think I might be taking the Long road, if not its my mad money and I never thought that three months after I bought it, it would be in the mid 70's. Happy New Year to everyone and thanks for all of the great posts.I have really learned a lot.


Makakilo, Hawaii
