Default Congratulations Glen & Ray...AAPL

Yes...I know both of you have some substantial investment in Apple and with todays news it is soaring in after hours. Last I checked it was $102+. I only have a few hundred shares so we all can celebrate! I know you guys have taken some slack in the recent past about AAPL but he who laughs last laughs best.

Apple Reports Second Quarter Results
Earnings Grow 88 Percent Year-over-Year
CUPERTINO, California—April 25, 2007—Apple® today announced financial results for its fiscal 2007 second quarter ended March 31, 2007. The Company posted revenue of $5.26 billion and net quarterly profit of $770 million, or $.87 per diluted share. These results compare to revenue of $4.36 billion and net quarterly profit of $410 million, or $.47 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 35.1 percent, up from 29.8 percent in the year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 43 percent of the quarter’s revenue.

Apple shipped 1,517,000 Macintosh® computers and 10,549,000 iPods during the quarter, representing 36 percent growth in Macs and 24 percent growth in iPods over the year-ago quarter.

“The Mac is clearly gaining market share, with sales growing 36 percent—more than three times the industry growth rate,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We’re very excited about the upcoming launch of iPhone in late June, and are also hard at work on some other amazing new products in our pipeline.”

“We are very pleased to report the most profitable March quarter in Apple’s history,” said Peter Oppenheimer, Apple’s CFO. “Looking ahead to the third fiscal quarter of 2007, we expect revenue of about $5.1 billion and earnings per diluted share of about $.66.”

I'm predicting (without a lot of effort) that if you buy i-AAPL even today and sit on it you will make significant money somewhere down the road.

i-Apple is one of those companies that is far from playing itself out. The only way i-Apple can fail is if the economy tanks, i.e. a total collapse of the US dollar. If that happens the loss of investment in i-Apple will be the furthest thing from your mind.

The enthusiasm scale is now way up for Apple stock, would it be too presumptuous to say....

WE TOLD YA SO.

Now....Rush out and open an online account with “Scottrade” or any other broker and put every dime you can fetch up on Apple stock, as I have said before, the ride can be lumpy, but the direction is only up, up, up.

It is no advantage for myself, and others here, to tout the Apple stock to you fellas, we just want other THT folks to make a few bucks along with us. Just true altruism.

My new LandCruiser and new Honda Bike, as pictured below are getting closer and closer.

Statistics from the university’s Go Mobile program show half of the students purchasing laptops chose Apple computers.

Yeah but are you guys selling? You are not making (or losing) money unless you are selling Paper gains mean nothing (remember 2001?)...

I've been watching this since Glen's been talking about it and give a lot of credit to those of you who stayed with it through the dips. Good job!

US Steel (X) broke a hundred before Apple........I ain't knocking Apple by no means but personally I like the worldwide demand for steel over the demand for the I Pod and I Phone.

Yes, Firefly, Selling some US Steel (and Deere) helped me invest in something REALLY important. Fishing Tackle.

Not to pee on your leg -- congrats on the gain -- but smart money says when everyone thinks it's a "can't miss," get out. Don Ho's dead but we may be seeing the start of "tiny bubbles."

Who remembers Qualcomm in 1999?

you're missing the point - AAPL is a long term growth stock -this is not vegas...If you can't atay in for 10 years don't play this one...My first buy was in 98 and I would'nt want to tell you what those 1000 shares are worth now....

I just don't have the guts to jump in at $100 a share. Being 34 I have been putting max into my 401K for about 7 years now but have not taken the step to invest on my own. I'm chicken and would probably start with $1,000 in an etrade type account but that doesn't get me very far.

no 100 is steep and ties up too much money -wait for the split when it's 50 and then think about it....but with the dow doing what's it's doing, hitting the 401K hard right now is the smart choice....
