Do you think Apple's stock will rise by the end of the year?
No, I do not think so. Basically stock market has already top up and will go down over the period . Economy is cooling down, it will remain sluggish. The new Samsung Galaxy 4 and Lumina from Nokia are giving Apple strong competition. It is rumoured Google owned Motorola will be launching its most advance smart phone, smarter than Samsung Galaxy 4 and Apple V and Lumina. This all will give Apple a difficult time.
Yes, because the news has been pretty negative for Apple during the first half of 2013. With some decent product announcements and/or releases later in 2013, AAPL should go up. Also, Apple is doing a huge buyback of shares that they just announced, which should boost the stock.
I wrote a Hub that analyzes Apple's stock: Why Apple (AAPL) Is Still a Bargain Despite Its Lofty Price
I sure hope so, I like selling Bull Put options rather than selling Bear Call options. I made a Bear Put trade for April when I thought Apple had turned the corner, at least that is what most of the technical signs showed; that miscalculation cost me most of the profit I had made from Apple the previous 12 months. (that is the downside to options, btw)
You'll get my answer as soon as you deposit $100 to my personal account for financial advisory services.
Apple is a good company that may return shareholders handsome long term rewards. If you need the money find other ways of getting it and keep Apple as a long term core holding if earnings forecasts hold up.
