Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) – is a company engaged in designs, manufactures and markets mobile communication and media devices. Also makes personal computers including laptops, and portable digital music players, and also sells a wide range of related software services, and third party digital content + applications. Some of Apples products include iPhone, iPad, Mac, iPod, and the Apple TV. Apple also sells digital content via their iTunes Store, App Store, iBookstore, and the Mac App Store.

Today Shares of Apple popped on News of iPad 3 of which may be coming out next month. Since the New Year Apple Shares have climbed in dramatic fashion. On 12/30/2012 Apple closed close to $403.00 a share. At close today Apple closed at $493.73 up $16.49 (3.46%). Not only have these shares climbed over $90.00 a share since the new year, but are on the way to set new all time highs. Over the past 52 weeks Apple has traded as low as $310.50, and as high as $496.75.  Current P/E is on 14.05 which surprisingly is not as high as many would expect.

Facts are since 2008

EPS have climbed from 6.78 a share, to 27.68 as of 52 weeks ending September, 24th, 2011.

Gross Profit has climbed from $13.197 Million 2008 to $43.818 Mill 2011.

Total Revenue has climbed from $37.491 Million 2008 to $108.249 2011.

Not only has this company made a fortune during a deep recession but, as the expand and grow on a global basis the potential for growth is unimaginable. Not only will iPhone, and iPad be one of there biggest sellers, but iTV, and iCloud will be phenomenal products.

Currently I have Apple Rated a Hold, and a $510.00 Target Price for June 2012.

Currently I do not own any Shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:APPL)  – and have no plans to make a position within the next 3 trading days.

Apples stock of which has a 52 week High of $422.86, and its 52 week low $277.77.

 

Currently Apple is Trading around $373.00. Not only do they have great products, and Everyone out there wants an Ipod, Iphone, and Ipad. Being a company with this much demand makes you more viol ital. Not only do I feel that Apple is Overbought, but I think it is close to $100.00-$125.00 overbought. Over the coming months ahead, it is obvious that there products will be the top sellers especially during the holidays. However, The facts are people like, change, and I personally do not think that the iPhone will be as hot of an item as it is right now until they change the looks to it. They not only need to make the screen bigger. For them to get into the Business  market and take full control of that cell phone sector the phone has to change. Personally I love all Apple products they continue to blow my mind with some of the things you can do with them. However there price is unmatched, there products are TO EXPENSIVE for the Average American, and I think this may hurt them long term. If they can lower price and compete with other products that are more than half the price, I think they will continue to miss out on a large market share. I expect Apple to continue a downtrend, and when it hits under $250.00 then maybe will I think about Investing in them. I would rather have my money in At&t, Verizon Wireless as not only do you get a Dividend, and Great Yields, but if Apple falls out someday in the Future, it does not matter because they would obviously have the new Hot Item, and Cell Phones are not going anywhere. Over the coming years ahead I believe these phone companies will increase in price, Dividend, and Yield which over the Long run will benefit me more than a investment in Apple. Currently I have Apple as a SELL, and have no intentions of investing in them until a change is underway.

Yesterday was the mark of a $12.5 billion dollar deal between Google (GOOG) and Motorola Mobility (MMI). Google being the world’s leading search engine obviously has the money.

My personal believe of all the controversy that this deal yesterday has stirred is simply this. Google knows that regardless the fact that the Android operating system for mobile phones sells better than Apples Iphone. Google really does not care if Apple (AAPL) may have taken over the number one spot over Exxon (XOM) #1 company in the world price tag wise. Google (GOOG) focus is to continue to be the number one search engine. Obviously from my blog a few days back about Cisco (CSCO) is that the online world will continue to shift. Over the next 5 years the amount of online time being used online via cell phones, and other handheld items will soar passed the desktop computers, and Labtops. Google’s (GOOG) Plan is obvious, they want to make sure that they still are the leaders when this shift happens. Meaning obviously the need to make a slight shift to this Handheld change. Yes they do have the Google Android system of which sells better than Apple, however now they can work more on other platforms. Apples (AAPL) iPad obviously gets google worried. Why not spend the money that they literary have sitting around on Motorola one of the best in the phone world and team up. This to me is a classic move for Owners trying to continue to run Google like a business. To be in business you have to stay in business and reshape certain aspects of the company to compete. However this does not mean turn into General Electric (GE). When I say that I mean do not try to focus on 14 different concepts at once, it does not work that way. A business is like a building, you need to build it from the ground up, you cannot just ride the elevator to the top. Google (GOOG) buying Motorola was a wonderful Idea. It will also pay off long term for the company. My only fear is can Google (GOOG) turn into a General Electric (GE) time will only tell.

Baidu.com (BIDU) does not scare Google (GOOG) one Bit!!

There is no question about it I have loved Google since day one of using it as my search engine. Google knows that Baidu.com (BIDU) will continue to try and make a run for their money long term. However Google(GOOG) knows the shift we are heading into. Google (GOOG) knows that they may lose out on the online world with search engine service over the coming years ahead on desktops/laptops. However they also know that the money that will be generated because of this hook up with Motorola with the next big boom come internet innovation.

Currently Google (GOOG) is a SELL SELL SELL. I expect long term downtrend to start to take form. Being as in my personal opinion Google (GOOG) is over priced. Once it gets under $470 a share Google in my opinion is still a rich mans buy not a average joe like myself.

Disclosure – Currently I do not own nor plan to initiate a position in Google (GOOG) now or the next 3 trading days.
