    “…. My take: Joe Kernen is a joke, but he asks a relevant question: Why buy Apple at the top?”

    Long term Apple investors long have known the answer to Joe Kernen’s naive question: Apple’s top today is Apple’s bottom tomorrow. One gets aboard the Apple Express before it leaves the train station. Otherwise, you have missed the train.

    Apple’s stock price long term just keep growing in value like the Duracell battery just keeps going and going. There is no greater company on the planet in innovation, quality products and service offerings supported by the greatest leadership in administration, management and operations predicated on great talent. As long as Apple has all the combinations working in harmony together the company is on track for much further stock price growth. My personal Apple stock price projection is $175 by Q1 2022 and $200 by Q4 2022.

      Years ago there was a writer on The Mac Observer, Wes George, who said the Apple ship is leaving the harbor and to get on board. I am glad I took his advice. That was 21 years ago

        I remember TMO. They were a player in Apple centric news, and ran a forum where AAPL investors could discuss investing strategies.

        Then they redesigned their forum. It was a disaster and it’s participants said so. TMO’s response was to lash out at those participants, going so far as to describe them as less than worthy.

        TMO’s ranking among Apple centric sites dropped like rock, I don’t know if it ever recovered.

        Wes was an excellent source for Apple news. Whatever happened to him?

    Hooray.

    Finally a decent discussion about health. This is NOT priced in.

    And great point about upgrades: The category of 3 yrs or older remains at 400 million forever. Each day that a user upgrades, another user ‘graduates’ to the 3 yrs or older class.

    There’s another answer to “why buy at the top?” – stock buybacks.

    – stock buybacks.

    While everybody is thinking “Buy Low, Sell High”, Apple is forced to pay a premium in order to avoid SEC rules violations. Even with that boat anchor wrapped round it’s corporate neck, nobody has bought more shares since Apple’s buyback program began, and yet Apple’s average basis is well below today’s prints.

    Average annual equity appreciation during the past 10 years is ~24%.

    If you aren’t buying the sell offs you’re a fool.

    Any analyst with less than a BUY rating on AAPL is hurting his clients.

    One answer to his question is the fact that Apple is also becoming a value stock. A value stock that ‘prints’ tons of money, is, well, valuable.
    But Apple is not transforming to a value stock, as it is still a growth stock, specifically in the areas of health and transportation.

    When Apple split AAPL 4:1 on Aug 28, 2020 at a then all time high of almost $500 into 4 shares @ $125, a person who invested $100,000 into 200 original shares pre-split recording would today have 800 shares worth $153.65 or $122,920 shares plus dividends. If they had continued to buy just 8 shares each month and dollar cost averaged (like Apple has done with buybacks), they’d have an additional 100 shares at an average of ~$129 spending $12,900.

    Total expense $112,900, current value 900 sh x $153.65 = $138,285, a tidy 22.5% profit for the year’s worth of work. Nothing fancy, nothing speculative, just above average growth over the long haul, and a strong foundation for future growth.

    If that person instead had been accumulating 20 shares a month starting in October 2019, and kept buying through successive highs, lows, and then new highs till August split, their share cost and total investment costs would have been even lower.

    As said above, successive Apple new highs are yesteryear’s investment floors. Everyone so wants to hit the big home run to come back from a deficit when it is so much better to hit singles and doubles and consistently score runs to stay ahead.
