That is some crazy jumpin’ around, if you ask me.
It seems that the market is generally quite volatile these days. Apple’s iPhone has had a good response from consumers and the projections for sales in 2008 are quite hopeful. iPod sales are still strong, and even Mac sales (iMac) aren’t too shabby. But this kind of jitter around earnings reports and related news means that investors have their fingers on hair-triggers. I can’t help but think that this means some rocky roads are ahead.
My advice: Invest your money in AAPL and then take a 6-month vacation from watching the numbers. It will benefit both your heart and your pocketbook.
