    Great going, oh absorbent one. Too bad I don’t play golf or we’d hit the links next weekend. I’m in the mood to swing for the hills. Keep posting up great numbers.

    Gratz on the coincidence, omacvi. wink [Temp note: you could use a space between the ! and the emoticon, it’d work better.]

    I started with 100 shares and never gave up on buying more and more. With each drop I can create a puddle and then a pond and then a Lake. smile

    and then a sea.

    for you to live under.

    congratulations!

    Congrats on 6000! And thanks for sharing your margin strategy throughout. As I reduce options I’ve been adding stock with some sponge-like margin.

    Here’s to leveraged dividends!

    Nice work!

    This fits in nicely with my new theory—The Rule of 10

    It starts with OSX(10), then waiting until 100B to announce a dividend and 10B buy-back plan, your own 6000/$600=10 milestone, and of course, AAPL splitting 10-1 when share price hits $1000.

    It’s all so elegant.

    I know there is so many reasons not to split, but where would we be if AAPL had never split?  You could barely buy a single share with one year’s Roth payment.

    LOL

    Who does not seem to work or sleep will post 1000x on my behalf smile

    I think the number of posts also reflects how much time I spend here learning about aapl.  Knowledge is power!!!!

    By learning and sharing what I have read some place else, I further educate myself and better understand why I must stay the course and be disciplined.

    However it is easy to acknowledge these positive attributes and observations when the stock is going up:)

    $1,000 :-D.

    omacvi and AppleII+

    Congras.  Your margin interest are subsidized by Apple dividends.

    omacvi,

    You should burn into your brain that 2012 is the year of the sponge.  With dividend, your strategy makes hell a lot of sense.
