Disclosure: Although I am now an Apple shareholder (see Why I bought a share of Apple, my first), I am in no position to give trading advice. Don’t blame me if you drain your IRA doing something you read about here.

      Kirk: In less than 60 days Apple will announce its capital return update for the year. This will include the size of the next tranche of share repurchases and the size of the quarterly dividend for the next four distributions. I don’t see it as a time to sell. I may add modestly to existing positions ahead of Tuesday’s events. I agree. Buy and hold.

    Strongly Apple out perform. Short term that may be down. Someone help me out. Keeping round numbers – compared to last year – extra spending on oil alone – 100 million barrels per day x $50 extra is 5 billion extra spending per day, 1.8 trillion per year. 2+ % of world gdp. Of course doubling energy costs affects everything else. At what point does this economic drag hurt Apple. For consumers, timing of purchases is largely discretionary sine products are typically replaced while still fully functional. Any short term bulls out there?
    Maybe being from Texas gives me oil blindness?

      Brian: In my view, the biggest drag on Apple’s growth due to high energy prices will be any diminishment in the pace at which people around the world enter the global middle class. For hundreds of millions of the world’s citizens, Apple products are aspirational purchases. The faster more people enter the global middle class, the faster Apple grows its global consumer base. Eliminating the remaining supply challenges will do more for Apple’s near-term prospects than the risks of higher fuel prices on the downside, in my view. Because Apple has pricing control over its products, competing manufacturers may be hard pressed to maintain pricing levels due to razor-thin margins which may provide Apple with another competitive advantage at this time.
