Fair enough. ;D I'm just tired of hearing political hyperbole from politicians, the media/newsletter authors and portfolio managers.

I hear ya, brother! The sooner the circus ends, the better. Can't wait to be back to a more boring news cycle about white women being missing and celebrities overdosing.

That's funny!
Jonah Lehrer had a great article on social media that relates to many tech companies, Apple included. There must be some cognitive bias in here somewhere! :-X

AAPL is at only 14X current earnings.

Some food for thoughts: http://www.cultofmac.com/ipod-iphone-ipad-why-apple-is-done-inventing-new-devices-2/108753

Good article, except for that Apple doesn't really invent products. They didn't invent desktop and laptop computers, they didn't invent mp3 players, they didn't invent cell phones, they didn't invent tablet computers, they didn't invent software to let people record music, organize their photos and edit movies. What they do is make products that work and look better and are easy to use, and they do that better than any company on the planet.

Indeed. I didn't write the article, so it's not my choice of words. But I thought the part about their strategy and why it could be nearing some stable state was insightful.
