Wow! The free-fall at Apple continues, selling at 455 down from a high of 705, and is off 11% today. What's going on?

I don't know, but as an optimist I'm thinking maybe we should buy while the price is low.
All they have to do is release another version of their I-Phone and folks will be lined up around the block to upgrade.

I just wish they'd invent a keyboard that could spell!

I'm holding out until it hits 400, then buy a boat load of it....I believe they missed a sales forecast yesterday for the first time in quite a bit.

Android devices are absoluting kicking their ass abroad, as well as stealing some market share in the US.

Just the usual old panic by people who should not have bought the stock in the first place. Apple has a great future. Apple is 'galoaded' with cash. They have plenty of great stuff in the pipeline. However, they are changing their marketing strategy a bit. They basically said they will not be unveiling on stage 'superstar' products as often as they did when Steve Jobs was alive. Idiots said, 'Oh no they don't have anything new to sell'

People who bought in the $500-$600 range thought it would go up forever. They bought on greed and sold on panic.

As they say on Wall St. 'Bulls make money, bears make money and pigs get slaughtered'

Apple has great fundamentals, is an industry leader and is undervalued. This panic sell off is not reflective of the company.

I'm not sure individual investors selling could have moved the stock price 250 points. That may be true for a portion of the move downward, but only institutional investors can move a stock so dramatically. For whatever reason, it looks like the major players have lightened up on Apple.

I did not mean that it was just individual investors. The institutional ones are no dopes. They sold it high and caused much of the drop. They will be the same ones who buy it again at a low price point they helped create and will make even more money when it goes up again, and it will.

It is an old game and has made tons of money for many people on Wall St.

God love em!

Somebody must be punishing their stock for record profits. There are these people out there you see who seem to not like record profits.

That is an overly simplistic and unsophisticated analysis. there is considerably more that is examined in these cases. Stock prices reach a level that is based on profits, cash flow and anticipated income in the near future. When projected sales figures are not reached, future projections are suspect. I guess they don't teach economics in your high school.

Maybe the US public are turning away from Apple due to their practice of outsourcing American middle class jobs to slave labor overseas???

You give the American public too much credit. It is about "cool" and "cost"; nothing else.

True, perhaps but Apple make a fine (if high-price) product.

For the type of work that I do (digital video editing and audio) the Mac is less prone to system crashes and internet viruses than most PC based systems. I think when the stock price hits a low enough point (400, as mentioned earlier) Apple would be a smart buy.

They sure ain't going out of business; and their products are better. But; for most users the decision for Apple has been "cult based" as my daughter surely could do what she does on a computer (and phone) for less than half the price of her Apple products

I don't know, I've been having a lot of issues with a lot of my apple product and the problem is, it costs so much more, to have any problems at all is starting to make it seem not worth the trouble. With most of my PC based products, I can usually come up with a resolution on my own (i.e. replacing a monitor vs sending it in to be repaired and waiting).

Not that I think my opinion is in anyway close to becoming the norm and therefore doesn't have much bearing on stock price.

This is all part of the cultlike atmosphere that Jobs so carefully crafted. Good, expensive, elite products that only Apple could supply and fix at the genius bar. When the economy was at its bottom in 2008/2009 I'd walk through an empty mall by me to find 500 people in the Apple store

Well, then maybe it's just a big huge dose of Karma biting them in the @ss for outsourcing away from fellow American workers.
