if history will repeat itself, it will at one point be very up and one point be very down. these reports can have one stupid word and boom, it falls. and then an analyst reads a good word and it shoots up. gonna be a very volatile day.

look at MSFT.  earnings where as projected, but due to other reasons it fell 9%

i dont recall MSFT having $178 Billion cash on hand ! yes you can say that again BILLION spelled with a B.
i dont recall MSFT generating $18 B profit in one quarter.
i dont recall MSFT having costumer camping out 24hours outside the store to grab the newest phones or gadgets.
this list can go on and on.

Apple is not just a technology company selling electronics and software.
im not here to pump the company but this is one of those stocks that people do feel comfortable putting all eggs in one basket.

what im saying, $178 Billion doesnt evaporate overnight.
 Icahn as an insider knows more then us, if he feels comfortable giving a $200+ Target Price im comfortable with that too. i will take $175 any day :-)


"VC Jason Calcanis predicts Apple will buy Tesla within 18 months, citing (among other things) Tesla's head-start in EV development, touchscreen UI investments, and plans for a battery gigafactory that could also benefit other Apple products. Elon Musk reportedly met with Apple M&A execs back in 2013." quote from today in Seeking Alpha

Just Saying :

 TSLA market value is $25.50 Billion

That rumor has been going around forever

I follow TSLA very carefully and I would be VERY VERY surprised if apple tried to acquire it
especially since Apple and Tesla are having a miniwar over poaching employees

Although I would be very happy if they did because TSLA is my biggest holding

Apple could buy almost any company it wanted. It could buy Mastercard, Visa, AMEX if it wanted to boost apple pay. It could buy Bank of America too.
It could buy netflix to have all our information on what we watch and sell that to companies.
If it wanted to boost entertainment, it could buy Disney (ESPN, ABC) too.

It could buy almost anything it wanted.

If Musk was selling Tesla he would have people lining up at his door.

Just because some company or person has the money doesnt mean it can buy whatever would be cool to own. Takes 2 to tango.

no way musk will ever sell tesla. It's his baby. He has a type A personality and wants to win. Selling to apple would not be winning the war.

not true for the right price he would sell
he even said that he will stay for the next 5 years as CEO but may leave after that
dont forget Paypal used to be his "baby"
he also has other thing he is doing (SpaceX) and things he doesn't have time to do right now (hyperloop)

Wow, if I was a stock holder it would be really tough for me to give a $500 target on this stock.
Live forever or die trying.
