Trade Alert: A is for Apple iPad, J is for Jack

It’s time to buy Apple AAPL again.  I’ve been saying that Apple is going to $1000 by 2015 since more than three years now, since the stock was a small fraction of its current quote. A little bit of the reasoning to refresh your memory: The stock’s still cheap, yes, even at $250 per share. […]

Reading the charts Cody-style

Today’s markets are U-G-L-Y. Tech especially. Let’s get some perspective about where these markets have been in order to get a better idea of the relative place of markets past.
