Interesting article in the Financial section.... including news that "Apple has scheduled a media event for 9th September and many expect it to unveil the new iPhone 6 with both 4.7" and 5.5" screens..." "Apple are aiming for the thinnest phone possible..." "The company was also helped by positive comments from activist investor Carl Ichan..."

Great end to the year for Apple IMHO By arborman

you gotta take your profit while it's there mate, i am holding for a couple more months at least as in recent years Apple have announced and launched new products in September and October, so I am hoping they launch something wicked this Autumn too.
Good luck whatever you choose to do

Its a view JG - I'm holding from a tad lower.

But with all the new products in the pipeline, its worth a gamble unless.......

12:53 21/08/2014 Cashing in......
As I've decided to take my 43.71% profit (plus divis), and drip it into a Vanguard global divi fund instead.

Normally I avoid looking at how my sells are doing - especially after flogging Telecom Plus @ £5 - but tough to do with Apple.....

Eeeeeh - nowt wrong wi' profit etc I'll be telling myself...as this flies past $200...

Hi F

Yes - seeking alpha is a good 'un - opinions from all angles, not just raging bulls.

Not sure what the QPPSAG is - if its a Special Action Group full of those raging bulls, errr... then I'll stay clear for my own sanity :-)

Hi Johnny.
Do you subscribe to seeking alpha? It's free
I must have had 8 articles from them re AAPL.

Hope you're right about the products. Could be an interesting Autumn here.

Have you joined QPPSAG? Very positive re QPP

17:23 19/07/2014 Tickety Booh.....
Well everything seems to be ticking along nicely - here's me thinking my AIM stocks would be the big winners - alot of pants so far - especially XEL and Quindell !!

Anyway results in a few days, iWatch, iPhone 6, china mobile expanding 4G, some apple bloke said best product lineup in 25 yrs !!! - maybe an iMoneyPrinter, or iMOTforFree ??

Some bloke on Moneyweek wrote a few months back 'A simple elegant trade - Short Apple Long Google' - still early days but hope he's not all in on that.....

12:02 12/06/2014 Re: Query on Stock Split

I have sent a very angry letter to HSBC informing them that this situation is not acceptable and also demanded a compensation.
Also mentioned that I will take this matter to FCA, PRA and Financial Ombudsman Service,
and that I consider this to not a gross negligence appears but appears to be outright fraud

In my letter I also pointed the following shown below (taken from http://investor.apple.com/faq.cfm )

The Record Date – June 2, 2014 - determines which shareholders are entitled to receive additional shares due to the split.

The Split Date – June 6, 2014 - shareholders are due split shares after the close of business on this date.

The Ex Date - June 9, 2014 - the date determined by NASDAQ when Apple common shares will trade at the new split-adjusted price.

How does a 7-for-1 stock split actually work?
A 7-for-1 split means that six additional shares of stock are issued for each share in existence on the Record Date, June 2, 2014.

Its OK had they not updated the price of the stock. But HSBC has updated the price (£93.xx) and left the number of shares unchanged....

lets see what HSBC comes back with! By Jabbar_Aslam

I'm with Hargreaves Lansdown- exactly the same.

My III portfolio is too.

It just takes time - only a problem if you want to sell.

ps 52 pre split, you're buying the beers at the $1000 party !! By Fulchester
13:03 11/06/2014 Query on Stock Split

I am using HSBC Invest Direct as by broker.

I notice that number of shares I hold in AAPL remains the same (52 Shares) but the value of my stock has been split (reduced to 1/7).

I spoke with HSBC and they have said the number of shares will be updated only at end of Thursday!

Is is the same for other brokers as well?

I have sent an angry letter to HSBC Invest Direct asking an explanation and compensation.

Any one else experienced this before? I am sure its the responsibility of Broker to keep client;s portfolio up to date? (I assumed this would be up-2-date by end of Monday atleast) By Jabbar_Aslam
