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?

So the US economic will fall down, no borrowing , no business so more unemployed people

More than the double of the manufacturing cost …. and no social charge of the manufacture … just pure green paper …. no energy consuming, no pollutions , no risk in case of fail

Before I get into this with you please answer one question so I can asses where you are coming from.

In your opinion who was responsible for the US financial collapse of 2008?

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.
