I was actually holding on 2 shares.... What a shame....

Good to buy AAPL now? How about Amazon? Will they go back up?
Had I had extra cash I'd invest in both, on what basis? My feelings...

Did it everything crash due to the Chinese market?
That's the speculation

How do you "feel" about AAPL today?

It finally feels like they're at a decent price again.
I love the reports of slashing iPhone production, it happens every year.

Shut up!!

if you can't handle the ups and downs of a stock maybe you need to rethink your investment strategy.

Dont worry, I'm fine, I'm entitled to become angry when it's being rubbed into my face though :D

-1
My gosh, P/E ratio at 11 while reporting on a GAAP basis + an unprecedented cash hoard, it easily crushes any "iPhone slowdown" doom and gloom IMHO.

+1
Only downside though, the stock never tends to fully climb back up when those "reports" are debunked.

Why the -1 if it sounds like you agree?

Apple always go through these cycles.
They go too high, plummet, go sky high again plummet.

I bought a few times at the lows and it always rebounded drastically.

If by
decent price
you ment "ridiculously cheap", then I totally agree.
I bought a few times at the lows and it always rebounded drastically.
+1 (especially from those Q2 2013 buys @ $390's) but not at the same pace it fell.
Though I don't think it has bottomed out just yet, (China news in the last hour alone indicates another drastic drop tomorrow) and I'm counting on a few other WSJ-like articles popping out before earnings

It's been cheaper than 11 P/E before, and it still has some wiggle room to go lower.
I also bought in 2013 at 420 and tried buying again more at 390 but had to run to seder ::)
Also bought a bunch of years ago at $250 right after the overblown antenna-gate (wasn't a real investment, though I wish it was...I was still a rookie and trying to see if I could find underpriced stocks.)

You really believe in WMT? can you explain?
And what do you think about M or CHK

Surprisingly WMT is one of the only winners of the past few days.
They're very cheap right now (just 13 p/e), they're a company that I expect to be around a very long time,
and they have incredible logistics that are tough to replicate.

Ecommerce will be a very big factor in the coming years and I think they haven't done a bad job (most retailers have done a far worse job IMO), and will
probably continue to improve the experience and carve out a nice percentage of the increasing online sales.

Add in a 3% dividend + a large percentage of their market cap is backed by cash + assets, and I think they're a good buy.
