AAPL Intraday Updates (Archive)

  • Posted: 08 August 2010 06:42 PM

    AAPL ended the trading week above $260 (finally).

    What should we expect in early Monday trading?

    More of the same, moving with the markets absent outlier events (see below).

    Papermaster will provide an “excuse” to keep AAPL more or less trending with the NASDAQ/DOW.  AAPL has been a news stock at times, and I think it’ll take some news for AAPL to separate from the pack, especially given the current economic climate/sentiment.

    My best wild-eyed dart toss I hatched over the weekend is to long the GSEs and hope Tuesday’s FOMC minutes say things like the FED will buy mortgage backed securities. It is not quantitative easing; it is different.

    The Federal Reserve?s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will meet on Tuesday, and the FOMC statement will be released at around 2:15 PM ET. This will be closely scrutinized for a discussion of the economic slowdown since the last meeting on June 23rd ? especially considering the two weak employment reports in the interim ? and to see if the FOMC will slightly ease monetary policy. There has been some discussion that the Fed might announce they are reinvesting maturing mortgage backed securities (MBS) into either new MBS or Treasury securities

    FOMC and the economy scares me. I just wrote some thoughts about the problem in the political thread.

    Andy Zaky article from Fortune online: A lesson in how not to value Apple

    excerpt:

    So just because a stock has strong fundamentals, just because it is undervalued based on widely accepted metrics, or just because everyone has $300 to $400 price targets doesn’t mean that the stock will see those levels in any short or intermediate term time frame. Instead, the only advantage available to investors is having a long-term viewpoint of the markets. Apple is probably worth $400 a share ? but only in the long term. The only thing one can say with any degree of confidence is that Apple will probably see much higher levels some time within the next few years.

    Keeping these reservations in mind, I’ll be offering a thorough fundamental analysis of the company.

    Saw this on MacIntouch and thought it worth sharing

    Steve White

    One app that works on the iPad is Citrix. This app is used on Macs and PCs to allow users to connect into virtual networks, especially those maintained by corporations. It came out for the iPad shortly after the iPad launch.

    I’m a physician, and my hospital uses the ‘Epic’ electronic medial record system. If you know Epic, you know it’s big and demanding. We have a wireless network on campus and ‘COWS’ (Computers On WheelS), which are essentially 5-wheel trolleys with a Dell box, flat screen, battery and wireless, so that we can access Epic (via the Citrix client on the Dell) while doing our rounds. I’m not sure what the hospital paid for them but I know they’re pricey.

    I downloaded Citrix to the iPad recently and after launching it entered all the information I needed to connect to Epic on our network. Sure enough, I get every part of Epic on the iPad that I would get on a COW, including radiographs. It is wonderful to be able to scroll a patient’s CT scan on an iPad grin

    The point: a $500 iPad blows away a $2K-plus COW. I now walk from room to room in the hospital and clinic with everything I need to see my patients. For their part, patients and their families are amazed, particularly when I can show them their x-rays right there at the bedside.

    Color me happy!

    Needham target upped from $280 to $375.

    Thanks for the link Adam, my question is; How can this analyst hold a 2010 eps of 13.9x when we are already at 13.28 and Apple has guided higher than what Needham is saying? makes no sense. The 15 eps for next fiscal year is a complete joke.

    ATT exclusivity to end with certain smart phones.  Of course, this is the iPhone—no other phone would have the kind of impact to warrant such disclosure in a filing with the SEC.  This bodes well for AAPL (and possiby VZ, which I just sold last week).
