Apple (AAPL) and Zika

The best time to buy Apple (AAPL) was in 2003 after the Internet Bubble had burst and technology stocks were treated like dirt. Of course, no one wanted AAPL back in 2003, but in the 13 years that followed, the stock soared 9,400%. The best time to sell AAPL was in mid-2012, when AAPL became the world’s most valuable company.

Sell Apple, Buy Facebook?

Institutional investors love both stocks. But let’s look at the reality principle. Here are a couple of charts that show how AAPL and FB have performed over the last three months. I think the difference will be clear.

Remain Defensive | Cabot Weekly Review

In this week’s Stock Market Video, Cabot Growth Investor and Cabot Top Ten Trader Chief Analyst Mike Cintolo discusses the market's recent bounce, pointing out the good (some stocks are separating from the pack during earnings season) and bad (the overall bounce in the indexes has been weak) of the past two weeks.
