    Then why didn't they wait and cash in on the $10 to $20 APPL rise since then? Some are predicting another $50 rise in APPL this year.

    Personally I think they are wrong and everyone is in for a surprise drop in value but if I was always right I would be rich.
    I'm not discounting what your saying - they're probably doing both. I would suspect they're cashing in on a winning investment - and then going back in and buying in waves - x shares at current price, x+y shares when the price rises to a certain point, x+y+z when it reaches another price.

    As far as dropping - I'm kind of 50/50 on that. I think it is reasonable to expect a drop after the rise that Apple has had - but the other iPad shoe is still left to drop (hopefully this week) with the 3G's. Probably another bounce with the release of 4.0 and then the sales in November and December - probably followed by iPad 2.0 next spring.

    There's also one other thing that has been bouncing around in the back of my head for a couple of weeks now - what about a stock split? This stuff seems primed for a 3 to 1 or 4 to 1 split. Wouldn't YOU like to have $20M sitting in the bank waiting for this to split 4 to 1 -- and then go in and buy 4 times as many shares at the lower price? And then watch the price double over the next 2 years?

    My 2 cents...

    AAPL WILL break the $300 estimation by 12/2010. Almost all analysts in Wall Street have raised their targets from the $250-$275 range to $300, some "crazy" ones even going as high as $350.

    If you look at Apple numbers, market conditions, forecast and Apples own performance, it will happen, and I would say sooner than later. Just this past Friday the stock broke the $250 mark, only to shrink slightly to $247 and change. Next week, after the conference call and 3G release, the stock will get to $260, and in June/July, after the new iPhone 4G and Verizon gets in the mix, the stock will be pushed all the way up to the $280-$290 range.

    Apple is sitting on a pile of cash; the stock will not go anywhere but up.

    I don't think they will. The new trend is not to. It tends to decrease volitility as well as increase insitutional ownership.

    Very unlikely in my opinion.

    Stock splits are done when:

    1.- Company is in trouble, needs extra money and spread the risk in more shares/less cost.
    2.- Stock is way too expensive and prevents the regular investor of jumping in.

    None of these scenarios apply today to Apple; they're sitting in a big pile of cash, and they're not a mini version of Berkshire Hathaway. However, they've gone splitting in the past. Why? Nobody knows in the first 2 cases for sure, but the last time was just to rally the stock. They don't need that now, unless they want to keep the stock price down ($50/$75 range). Splits are psychological moves, and right now, Apple is a big bear, so no need to resort to that.

    Next year, after the $300 ceiling? Maybe, but why ruin the exclusivity aura that surrounds an expensive stock, without any need for it?

    And forget about dividends... Jobs likes sitting on a pile of cash "just in case."

    look at the price of Google per share.

    Scenes we will no longer see if iBooks on the iPad become popular.

    The issue with Apple execs selling some of their stock has to do more with anticipating the stock rise. The way taxes are formulated, it sometimes pays more to sell a stock at a lower price.
