    LONDON (Reuters) - John Lewis, Britain’s biggest department store group, posted another strong rise in weekly sales, driven by strong demand for technology products and the start of its clearance sale. (...)

    “Our performance in electricals continues to delight,” John Lewis’ buying and brand director Peter Ruis said.

    “Much of the strength in this area comes from customers continuing to buy into our new technology offer with our communication technology department delivering a 78.2 percent increase, powered by our largest-ever week on Apple and a 20 percent increase in e-reader sales as customers prepare for holidays.”

    Alex Gauna upgraded RIMM to hold recently and is now on CNBC, fielding a question from Melissa Lee “Aren’t you trying to tie two rocks together to see if they’ll float?”  Too funny.

    This guy is an articulate moron, an empty suit who gets airtime on CNBC.

    If only Steve were alive to celebrate iPhone’s 5th birthday!  I was going to say he would have relished the imminent BK of RIMM, but on second thought you know he stood in those same shoes once and was saved by a loan his competitor.  Well, not the same shoes at all though—Steve had great ideas, but RIMM?  No ideas.  Hey, that’s sport for you, as Rafael Nadal said yesterday.

    Good Morning Boys and Girls

    My money can’t come soon enough, because I feel like I am about the miss the train.

    I really wanted to buy below 575 and I may not have the chance after a day like today.

    Next week being a short week, we should have one more big sell off before the pre earnings run up.

    Our stock is really performing poorly the last 5 weeks.  We seem to end red days lower then overall market and end green days much weaker then the market.  I would attribute this to low volume.

    The RIMM results sad as they may be we not un expected by many here.  There will be many other companies facing the same issues in the next 3 years.

    Buy and Hold

    That’s a common myth. Yes, Microsoft invested in Apple, but it was part of a legal settlement and new agreements that were mutually beneficial.

    seems to be stuck in the mud at the moment while the rest of the market is up a lot farther.

    We end the market’s second quarter today on a number of positives….And technical reasons for investors to rotate out of fixed income back to equities.  Not all by any means, but some macro uncertainties being removed or neutralized.  Home builders, of all things, quietly smiling. Oil prices giving the consumer a little pocket change. 

    July may be a very interesting month…....

    On recent OI Fridays we have run up in the last hour as limiting positions are closed out or rolled? Will the pattern repeat today? Stay tuned between 3:30 and 4:00 for “the move of the week”.  :eg:

    ]... he stood in those same shoes once and was saved by a loan his competitor.

    Sorry, can’t let that pass “saved” is way overstating it. Apple didn’t need the $150M Microsoft “investment”, it was simply there for the media to write and talk about; it acknowledged the OS wars were over and Microsoft won. But it put out the message that MS didn’t want Apple to die; they weren’t competitors, and for Apple to win, Microsoft didn’t have to lose. The agreement gave Apple and its developers a five year umbrella to exploit the old Mac and MacOS while developing the new OS X. The important features of the agreement were: 5 year commitment to Office on Mac; release of Microsoft from litigation for what they had ripped off from Apple, and a patent cross licensing agreement. It told the world that Apple had at least a five year future, not 6 months.

    Yes and I have taken advantage by buying stock over food.wink

    These muliti month down trends are quite predictable at this point.  It happened around this time every year since 2010.

    What WS does not realize yet is that with each week that Apple ecosystem surrounded by a bigger and bigger moat is getting bigger and bigger.

    As the stock languishes with overall market and hedge funds manipulate, we are given the opportunity to invest.  And those who buy and hold, suddenly find themselves doubling their money with little effort and risk.
