AAPL: Buying the Dips!

Discussion in 'Stocks' started by cactiman, Oct 6, 2012.

  1. I'll be "fading in" all the way down to 600, if it falls that far.
    That would be a perfectly normal 15% pullback, and the volume is nowhere near panic levels.
    2 steps forward from 600 (+30%) = 780 over the next few months.
    This is probably just a "shake out" before the earnings announcement, and 9 out of 10 times AAPL goes up after earnings.
    Plus there's talk of the iPad Mini announcement coming this week.

  2. I agree... wait until you feel like its really gonna be painful and buy... moves seem to go farther then you think they will.. healthy retracements...

  3. Everyone says "Buy the Dips" like it's easy, but it's not.
    When a stock is going down, it's because some kind of bad news or rumor is scaring traders into selling, and it feels like the stock will keep falling and never recover.
    You have to have "faith" the Long Term Trend will continue, and look at past pullbacks and the ensuing rallies for moral support.
    Then you hold your nose and Buy Low, so later on you can Sell High!

  6. Lines up perfect so far.
    3 steps forward, 1 step back; 2 steps forward, 1 step back; 3 steps forward, 2 steps back?
    Science, or self-fulfilling prophecy?

  7. dice rolls more like it haha.. jk.. its been a good push down.. keeps it from looking parabolic.. retail investors subconsciously like that i think.. so the manipulators are jogging it up to the ultimate pinnacle of euphoria that they can get!

  10. A stock goes down because of bad news??? I thought a stock goes down because there are more sellers who are willing to sell at lower price. There could be different reasons whey they want to sell: it could be as you mentioned "bad news", stock could be over evaluated, it could be that most popular technical indicators are showing high odds of correction and simply people may decide to fix the profit.

    If you such huge fund of bad/good news, please, explain why S&P 500 and other indexes did not reacted positively on such "good news" as drop in unemployment. O, I forget, there are always bad and good news and the role of the media tell us after the market closes which news moved the market.:D
