    And they’re off…Nikkei jumps 1.5% at open

    If the Nikkei’s up, we are definitely headed for the moon!!! :D

    Seriously. Nikkei is always red. Or at least it seems that way.

    Nikkei is up 2% Monday.

    And gaining a little steam at last check…

    Nikkei 9000, which hasn’t really been seen since Feb through a little past April this year?  Dare we hope?

    Say what you want to say about America, but we just parked a car on the surface of Mars.

    Black Swan Counter: 9 (Banks need money, Jobs needs a break, Geithner has no plan, Cuomo’s grandstanding, .Gov needs a hobby, GS works for money, flash crash, is that bubbling crude?).

    For those who look, a flash allows one to see farther.

    I’m not predicting $80 EPS.  However, I should point out this EPS # could include the equivalent of $7 EPS Apple adds from winning against SameSung (assuming treble damages). :-D

    Yeah, I wouldn’t count those chickens, for a long, long time, if ever. When’s the last time a massive, 10-figure patent award was upheld? Try never. Not that it couldn’t happen, but a bit early to be including it in EPS’s, even facetiously.

    No, don’t count on chickens, count on bulls to do our work for us.

    Morning all,

    All but one of the indices are green.  I take this as a modest rising tide for the coming months.

    AAPL is on par with the Nasdaq in pre-market.

    Based on Phil Schiller’s recent comments at the trial case, Horace Dediu has estimated the total number of iPhone 5’s Apple may sell:

    Not much market action - hopefully more consolidation than rally exhaustion. 

    The 615-ish gap filled a few minutes ago.  Now to see if AAPL can catch up with the indices.

    Everyone is patiently waiting to see if 618.50 - 620 breaks with solid volume. We need a 500-750K+ block to move the needle beyond 620. No wonder the 620 calls look cheap

    AOL WTF LOL

    Sorry, couldn’t resist.  LOL

    2+ year highs on selling patents?  Really?  Good thing I’ve avoided the stock so far because I never saw this coming.  But will look into going short via puts/BPS just as a thought exercise.  Momo can be frightening sometimes - best to proceed with caution.

    More evidence that iPhone 5 sales will be epic (along with earnings).  ListenLogic is reporting expected consumer behavior that includes this:

    There was a substantial increase of nearly 50 percent in intent to purchase the iPhone5 as compared to data on the iPhone4S in 2011. Last year, 58 percent of the pertinent online conversations spoke to purchase. That number today is 73 percent.

    and if you’re like ILovemyIpad, you’d wait for a ” second time through” before committing , right?

    Bought a small share position for the divvy portion of our portfolios.  Crazy move cause Apple’s dividend is diminutive, but what the heck smile. This is a buy and hold and reinvest portion of the IRAs.  Most Apple money is is calls and LEAPS, current positions there are a small April $650 and a large Jan 2014 $600.

    Having an AOL email address is like wearing a Mike Tyson-like tattoo announcing to the world that you’re either 1. Old or 2. A Luddite.  Or both.  LOL
