    For those of us who dabble in the stock market there is a burning question: Apple stock is up huge this year, is it too late to cash in?

    My personal opinion is no, it's not yet too late even with the meteoric rise of AAPL stock.

    I'm not the only one either, Jim Cramer as well as a number of other notable investors seem to think there is still plenty of room for the stock to go up as well. The following link is a great collection of some news stories that discuss the issue in more detail:

    My gut tells me that the iPad is due for some negative press over the next month or so... Wireless/other gen1 issues... Because of this, the stock should retreat a bit, but all the while, people will be buying these wonderful tablets and competitors will put out junk, and eventually the stock will see the growth you speak of.

    Nope - I wouldn't. Chances are that most of the savvy insider folks have already bought low. They're waiting for the final high to either sell quickly, short when the stock starts to fall, or, wait for a 2 to 1 or 3 to 1 split. I would be very afraid to jump into Apple right now. After it splits, maybe then.

    Apple has too much exposure to the American consumer to even be considered.

    The US consumer has already borrowed and spent his way into oblivion. It is my understanding that Apple was giving free 12 month financing on purchases over $1,000.00. This is exactly what we don't need.

    People should be saving not borrowing.

    Exactly how does the portion of US dollars that end up in China for each iPad sale come back here? Aside from the Chinese purchasing our real estate and businesses, they don't.

    When the currency crisis hits, which it will in less than 36 months, the purchasing power of your paper based US assets will be down by 70%.

    What the hell does this have to do with the discussion about whether or not to buy Apple stock?

    Any securities that have too much exposure to the US consumer should be avoided!

    The correct answer is:

    The Federal Reserve Chairman at the time : Alan Greenspan
    Now can you tell me why?


    BTW: Don't be defensive, this isn't China bashing. In fact if the Chinese stopped buying up all of the United States worthless debt. they would be better off.

    I would not be buying stock now because it is at the wrong time. I am not a big stock investor anyway, but I know when to buy and not to buy. Right now, Apple is on a hype. For a short period, day traders have a chance to make some money, but the best deals were months ago before the iPad was introduced.

    If you have confidence that the price is going to decrease then why not just short the stock?

    I did not say I thought it would go down. I just don't think it will be worth buying and then selling. It will have normal ups and downs, but nothing that makes me want to go out and buy stock. The one time that I wanted to buy Apple stock was years ago when Jobs returned to the fold. If I had the money then, I would have bought all I could afford.

    Apple stock will continue to rise. Many new great products in the pipeline like the Macbook Pro, iMac and iPhone. Plus apps, books, music, software, movies and money from iPhone usage coming in. Cash cows. Profits will be up higher an expected April 12 quarter results come out

    There may be some profit taking but that will only mean a buy opportunity

    Here is a link to a YouTube video that explains the basics of economic growth. After watching this the viewer should have an understanding of what the problems with the US economy are and why assets based on US dollars should be avoided.
