how much lower do you think $BABA is going?

Not sure. What I do believe is that we will see it go back up again.

Thinking of selling out of 50% of my Disney (cashing out original position to play with house money only) and getting into either CCL or TWTR.

I got in there around mid November. Has been treating me very well. But agreed, might be close to the ultimate high at this point.

That's awesome you got in then!

Yep, the timeless strategy of buy high, sell low, while keeping all your eggs in one basket.
Live forever or die trying.

1) Who said anything about buy high - got in at $97
2) Eggs in 1 solid basket is better than eggs in multiple iffy baskets
3) Target price is consistently raised, earnings exceeded, no short term worry necessary.

But not smarter than not buying eggs at all.

So are you predicting against all analysts that some time in the foreseeable future AAPL "bubble" will burst ?

I'm not predicting anything.
Though analysts predictions are usually the worst indicators of future performance.
I bought back at 60 (425 pre-split) when all the analysts wouldn't get near the stock with a ten foot pole.
And didn't buy way back at 700 when analysts were all over it.

If I'm understanding everyone here correctly, it doesn't seem that anyone is predicting anything. The use of the term "prediction" shouldn't really be associated with stocks. Nothing is definite. And analysts know this too.

I'm not placing any stock in analysts, however, if you have some insight that we are un-aware of, please enlighten.
After all, I don't want to lose my $$
