It is bemusing when the media interviews Scully like he is some Apple authority, when he's the guy who, according to Larry Ellison, was instrumental in making the worst CEO firing ever.
The HP Board just made the worst personnel decision since the idiots on the Apple Board fired Steve Jobs many years ago. That decision nearly destroyed Apple and would have if Steve hadn’t come back and saved them.
Anyway, it's clear Apple isn't hated ATM and that's good. I emailed a friend one of Cramer's pro-AAPL pieces, and he was confused why I'd care what such a clownish huckster thinks. Of course we know of the Cramer bounce and that Joe Retail watches and is influenced by Mad Money. A $1T market cap does tell us that Apple is very widely held and we need all the buyers we can get, so I'll take useful idiots on my side instead of the other.
My father who also has held AAPL for 25 years at my insistence, but does not follow things anywhere nearly as closely we do or even use the Internet, nonetheless rolls his eyes at these "experts" on Closing Bell and Fast Money (I beg him not to watch, but moth to flame) who are suddenly Apple bulls and authorities, when for years they've been saying the opposite. "Those @$$holes were telling me to sell Apple last year!"
If I ever run into that arrogant $#%@&*! Dan Nathan in a bar, I do honestly believe that the bouncers would be involved.
Cheers to the longs...but remember, we're always 90 days away from WS turning on us. Stay long for the long term, but short and medium bets, YMMV.
Had to swap my iPhone X for a new one at Apple Store. The screen stopped being touch sensitive. Having had most of the iPhones since the original, I figure they have handed me free replacements 6 times so far, a couple that were out of warranty. It used to freak me out as a share holder—How many free replacements can they (we) afford?! I guess a lot, now. Particularly with the secondary market—fix it and move it into service. The store was bustling even though there was a big Proud Boys/Patriot Prayer demonstration going on a couple blocks away, with even bigger counter protest happening, complete with talk of armed patriots and plenty of sticks and bats on both sides. Business as usual in these divided times!

sponge: Regarding the future of VR, I think it will be huge. I was a gamer when I was in college. But as an adult I lost interest. Last fall I flew up to visit my son at college and check out his new Vive set up. After playing with it for the weekend, I was
